   Jul-07-18 O Borik vs Miles, 1979 (replies)
Mendrys: A good GOTD. I enjoy games with material imbalances. Alas, poor Borick couldn't take advantage of his slight material advantage as he had hoped.
   Jul-06-18 Portisch vs Kasparov, 1981 (replies)
Mendrys: I'm surprised that I got it. Well, I'll give myself 9/10 of a point as I found the drawing line but figured that I must be missing the win somewhere and looked at the result.
   Jul-05-18 Svidler vs Gelfand, 2018
Mendrys: Interestingly 36...Kf7 was the correct move to keep the advantage. According to Stockfish White can draw by perpetual after 36...Qd7 37. Qg3+! though the line is complicated it takes advantage of whites weak back rank.
   Jul-04-18 Morphy vs T J Bryan, 1859 (replies)
Mendrys: <al wazir> you may want to check white's other replies to 16...Kd6?
   Jun-26-18 Gleizerov vs Krasenkow, 2016 (replies)
Mendrys: White had an interesting try to get out of the mate threat with 34. a3!? [DIAGRAM] the queen sac is still there for black but careless play would have lost for him. 34...Qxa3 35. bxa3 b2+ 36. Ka2 bxc1=N+!, an under-promotion wins the day. (36...b1=Q+? 37. RxQ cxb1=Q+ 38. Qxb1 Rxb1 ...
   Jun-17-18 Psakhis vs I Khmelniker, 2006
Mendrys: I always liked games where there is a material imbalance. 3 pieces for a Queen can go either way and here Khmelniker goes astray as black with 16...Qe6. After 17. d5, he is in not obliged to take with the pawn but can play 17...Qd7 and and probably be fine. A nice game by Psakhis in
   May-12-18 J van de Mortel vs Bronstein, 1995
Mendrys: <thegoodanarchist: Have any Karpov- Korchnoi games ever been GOTD? They played some great ones, and I have submitted puns for a couple, but instead we get this junk> There is this one: Korchnoi vs Karpov, 1978 Not quite the gem this game is but it'll have to do.
   Apr-10-18 GRENKE Chess Classic (2018) (replies)
Mendrys: <Big Pawn: <Gypsy: <Big Pawn> Good by.> See what happens when you stand up to these cowardly libs? The put their tails between their legs and run like a scalded dog! Dear lurking reader, don't let the libs bully you. Stand up to them and they will always, always, ...
   Apr-05-18 Y Afek vs Psakhis, 1990 (replies)
Mendrys: One of those interesting puzzles where it may be possible that the text move, 44...Bc5, would likely have been played during the course of a game, it does seem sensible as 45. Qxc5 Qxe4+ is an easy to see disaster for white. But...knowing that this was a puzzle I overlooked it as ...
   Mar-24-18 Myagmarsuren vs H MacGrillen, 1972 (replies)
Mendrys: The hard move, if it can be called that on a Saturday puzzle, is 55. b7. If 55. Kxa6 then black has an interesting and instructive tactic: (55. Kxa6 g4 56. fxg4 Rxg4! 57. hxg4 h3 58. gxh3 f3) and the pawn will queen with check. White should still be winning but it will be much ...
