Marmot PFL: White's better no doubt but in the puzzle I was looking for a clear win and here there is still lots of work left to do. After 19 Nd5 I didn't think black would let his queen and rook get forked so 19...Rb8 or Re8. 19...Re8 was played now 20 Nxb6 Qc6 21 Nxa8 hg5 and the knight is

Marmot PFL: <This is the first line of the article which, in case you didn’t notice, was not written by Dr. Elo: “The invention and employment of the Elo Rating System may be the best, but not the perfect, thing that ever happened to chess playing and organizing.” Did you understand that?
