   May-17-18 C Hoogendijk vs A A Marguerite, 2008 (replies)
Mayankk: Wasn’t the real puzzle move 20 ... Nxf2 instead of 21 ... Rxf2+? What else can Black play as 21st move? There seem to be no other candidate moves given Black has already sacrificed a knight and is compelled to go on a full-on attack. All in all a bad Thursday puzzle.

Mayankk: Nice puzzle. Saw most of it - starting with the fact that Bxe5 should be the first move since It makes the Queen hide for cover (Qxe5 is disastrous for Black). After that I did cheat in a way to see Black’s response i.e. Qd7. The rest of the moves were then clear to me, Bxf6 for a ...

Mayankk: I was sucked in by the beauty of Qb5 as well. Just seemed too beautiful a move to not be the solution.
   May-09-18 C Bleis vs K Haznedaroglu, 2005 (replies)
Mayankk: Definitely easier than yesterday, probably easier than Monday as well. I did waste some time in making 31... Qg3 and 31... Be5 work, just to add some confusion. But once you settle on Rxh2, its all forced thereafter. 2/3 this week.

Mayankk: First Tuesday i have missed for a while. Nf6+ was obvious. After that I kept trying to make Nxh7, Qh4+ and either Rd3 or Bd3 work but somehow it didn’t feel right and more like a speculative sac I often fall for. Then I looked at the elegant solution in the actual game and realised ...
   May-07-18 P Van der Sterren vs Van der Wiel, 1986
Mayankk: A really nice game with d5 square being focus of all the attention. First the intermediate Rook capture at d5 to make sure the other Rook gets to check on c file with tactical shots. Then Black Queen piles on the agony by placing itself on d5. Could White have prolonged the game a ...
   May-06-18 M Kravtsiv vs V Kazakovskiy, 2016 (replies)
Mayankk: @CHC - Yes, I know it loses. The question was more out of my disappointment that I failed to solve the puzzle despite guessing most of the follow-up moves correctly. Even if one doesn’t spot the Qxf6 tactics, Rxb3 is still playable since it ruins Black’s pawn structure. But maybe ...
   May-05-18 P V Nandhidhaa vs P Karthikeyan, 2016 (replies)
Mayankk: I see that there is no consensus yet on the usefulness of d6. Leaving aside the engine analysis, which in any case is mostly beyond recreational players like me, what is the tactical (or strategic) idea behind the pawn push? What is White worried about and is seeking to prevent by ...
   May-04-18 G Guseinov vs M Ezat, 2008 (replies)
Mayankk: Rooks are such like-for-like replacements that one can often sac one of them without affecting the potency of the Attack. In this case, we have 5 White pieces pointing at the Black King but four of them are unique and difficult to replace. You realise that you can sac one Rook for a
   May-02-18 Reti vs Breyer, 1913 (replies)
Mayankk: I got through to 27. Qxf7 as well. I should have also spotted that my Bishop is en prise on next move and the only reason it doesn’t work is because once the Rooks get separated, one of them can be gobbled up by white Queen after forking Black’s Rook and King. Nice educational ...
