Mayankk: Simple. Can be a Monday puzzle as well. The main idea is that the White King is forced to move to g1 after the discovered Nxg3+ check since the Knight at g3 is also supported by a Rook. The final Rh1# mate is easy to see.

Mayankk: Nice Monday puzzle. Makes you think for a few seconds to make sure that e7+ indeed works from all angles.
   Nov-11-18 Botvinnik vs Portisch, 1968 (replies)
Mayankk: I saw Rxf7 and the exciting King hunt if Kxf7 followed by Qc4+. Unfortunately I didnít know what to do if the sacrifice is rejected. Just too many lines to consider.
   Nov-08-18 Krasenkow vs Karpov, 2003 (replies)
Mayankk: I missed the Re1 tactics, although I saw the Bc5+, Re3 threat and the follow up with Re2+ if Kg2 instead of Kh1. But I didnít know how to proceed after that till I saw the shocking Re1.
   Nov-07-18 Kramnik vs Adams, 2017 (replies)
Mayankk: Whatís the problem with the very simple 29 Rxa5 for White to go up a passed pawn, while still maintaining tension on the 5th rank? Also what was Black trying to achieve by 28 ... Ne7? The d5 pawn seems adequately protected. Was it guarding against Nf5 to deny White Knight a strong ...

Mayankk: Interesting mate. It looked much simpler at first sight. But back rank is not as weak as it looked, till you push the King away with Rxg7+. Nice position.
   Nov-05-18 L Dominguez vs Aronian, 2016 (replies)
Mayankk: I of course saw Qxf7+ idea to win the exchange. But I kept wondering whatís wrong with the very simple Rxe7 till I read PBís explanation... Quite tricky.
   Nov-04-18 Radjabov vs O Bortnyk, 2016 (replies)
Mayankk: I was in the Rxh5 camp as well, after the obvious first couple of moves. Do we have a consensus on whether itís a win, hard-fought probably but a win nevertheless, despite the Qf5 defence?
   Nov-03-18 K Lerner vs M Roiz, 2008 (replies)
Mayankk: Odd puzzle indeed. Just like yesterday. Any puzzle where the first move springs to you almost immediately canít really be considered a good one. Agreed that it didnít lead to a quick win but there was nothing else to play anyway, other than Rxd4. So whatís the idea here I wonder.
   Oct-31-18 V Gashimov vs J N Riff, 2008 (replies)
Mayankk: The puzzle was easy enough - I mean what else can do you other than getting rid of the Bishop followed by a Queen check on d7. You do not even have to calculate till a mate since you can just harass the Black King for a while and pocket the hapless Rook at an opportune moment, ...
