   Sep-19-18 Lubensky vs Geller, 1949 (replies)
Mayankk: I saw all the possible threats - Be3+, Qh7+, Nxe3+, even Rf8+, but I was confused about the right order. The Rf8+ line is especially interesting since Nf4 appears to hold the fort till we analyse deep enough. All-in-all a deep puzzle and easy to go wrong even if you get the overall ...
   Sep-18-18 Kotronias vs D King, 1990 (replies)
Mayankk: Nice cute puzzle. You want to do something about the g7 pawn but Nxg7 or Bxg7 look rather slow. Nh6+ looks like a threat but Kh8 brings us to a dead end. Qxh7+ leads nowhere too. Then you wonder if you can somehow sneak your Queen in without a loss of tempo. Coupled with the Nh6+ ...
   Sep-17-18 Unzicker vs Tal, 1975 (replies)
Mayankk: Monday Queen sacs are back. And the world is a much happier place! Weird to see Tal at the receiving end of such tactics. Even more weird to see that this was not an isolated blunder but rather a continuous stream of sparkling moves by Tal’s opponent. The hunter got hunted instead. ...
   Sep-16-18 A Muzychuk vs Tan Zhongyi, 2017 (replies)
Mayankk: I got the first three moves as well though I wasn’t sure which one to play first - Qd3 or Ng5. I expected a g6 defence after which a simple h5 seemed like a winnable move. I also briefly thought of routing my Queen through Qe2 to Qh5 and should Black resist via g6, then a pawn move ...
   Sep-15-18 Smirin vs Pelletier, 2002 (replies)
Mayankk: Such a nice Saturday gift :) I kept wondering where am I going wrong with the simple Queen sac. Turns out it was all good.
   Sep-14-18 I Chirila vs I K Sukandar, 2017 (replies)
Mayankk: The only way I could make sense of this puzzle was via the ‘Guess-the-move’ method. Basically I went to game page and tried to Guess the next move before playing it manually. I was mostly on track as the game plays itself out. 25 Rf2 makes sense since the knight can’t be taken owing
   Sep-13-18 Von Scheve vs Teichmann, 1907 (replies)
Mayankk: I had the same sequence except that I swapped the 15... Ng4 and 16... Qg3 moves. Makes no difference methinks. The 18 Bxf7+ line and possible draw if 18... Kxf7 is interesting but I only understood it when referring to previous messages.
   Sep-12-18 W So vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
Mayankk: Got it. The combination is fully forced with no side-lines to analyse. And it of course helps that any other move seems to lose immediately owing to the double threat to e8 Rook as well as d3 Bishop, so you are forced to explore Qxd1. I was surprised to see a 2800 GM at the ...
   Sep-11-18 Y Zherebukh vs Akobian, 2017 (replies)
Mayankk: I kept wondering what’s wrong with the prosaic Rcc2 and so missed the brilliant Rd2 trick. As they say - even if you see a good-looking move, always seek something better.
   Sep-10-18 R Safar vs I Agrest, 2008 (replies)
Mayankk: With so much heavy Black artillery breathing down the hapless White King’s neck, it’s only a matter of time. We can choose from a variety of winning moves. Let us try to find them all. Both the Queen sac at g2 and Rook sac at h3 work for instance - Rook sac of course being the most ...
