   Jan-10-19 Bologan vs M Hansen, 2011 (replies)
 
Mayankk: At my level of play, I am happy as long as I can see the main sequence even if I donít notice all the stubborn defenses or side-lines. So in this case the main line jumps in a flash, mainly because it is just so tempting to sacrifice your Rook. After that you just have to see that ...
 
   Jan-03-19 M L Condie vs Speelman, 1984 (replies)
 
Mayankk: I had a slightly different move order. 25... Rxh5 26 Rxg4 Rh1+ 27 Ke2 Qc8 forking both the Rooks. Not sure if this order works as well.
 
   Jan-02-19 Kramnik vs Anand, 2008 (replies)
 
Mayankk: Feels so good to solve an Anand Kramnik WC game. I got it almost immediately which means I may have seen it before although I have no recollection. Itís amazing how helpless White is after fxe3. A treat for the eyes.
 
   Dec-31-18 Koneru vs N Resika, 2001 (replies)
 
Mayankk: <Mel Gibson> 35 Qh5 Rg7 36 fxg7 Qxg7 37 Qxf5 and White is looking at adding its Bishop to aim at h7 via Be4. With the Bishops aiming at h7 and h6 and itís Rook as well on h file, I really donít see how can Black put up any effective resistance. While I understand that the ...
 
   Dec-29-18 Gulko vs A Kremenietsky, 1982 (replies)
 
Mayankk: I saw the sequence from 29 ... Rxe4 to 32... Bxg2. After that I had blurred vision and wasnít sure if White could simply sac his Queen and still have some defence or it was game up.
 
   Dec-28-18 M Mihaljcisin vs Benko, 1970 (replies)
 
Mayankk: I thought it was pretty simple and the answer was Qxg6 as fxg6, Nxg6 is a pretty mate. Unfortunately Black doesnít have to accept the sacrifice. Talk about misplaced illusions...
 
   Dec-26-18 V Plotkin vs V Drkulec, 2008 (replies)
 
Mayankk: I got the game sequence quite fast but I kept wondering if there is a possible escape route via g7 for the Black King. In all such tactical mating attacks, skill lies in blocking all escape routes. For people with short attention span like me, it usually gets too much to ...
 
   Dec-23-18 I Salgado Lopez vs D Debashis, 2014 (replies)
 
Mayankk: I guess everyone saw the potential of 41 Qxg3 and the helplessness of Black Queen against Whiteís Rook and Knight combo. Also no one could calculate this to be a clear win for White. My only added thought is - If 41 Qxg3 is not a clear win, what is wrong with the very simple 41 Qh5?
 
   Dec-21-18 S Knight vs V Georgiev, 2008 (replies)
 
Mayankk: I got the first two moves in a jiffy but struggled to spot 22 d5. I wonder what is it with the simple pawn moves that I forget to evaluate them in the midst of tactical fights.
 
   Dec-20-18 Miles vs L Schmid, 1980
 
Mayankk: I had 44 Nf7+ unfortunately. It should still win since Blackís pieces are pretty scattered and Whiteís Queen is right in the middle of all the chaos. But not as clean as 44 Qxh6+.
