   Aug-27-16 Wang Hao vs M Antipov, 2016
Mendrys: Nice ending by Wang Hao starting with 34. Rxg7 [DIAGRAM] This would probably be a good Saturday/Sunday puzzle, it is mate in 10 from here as Wang Hao demonstrates after 38. Qh4+ [DIAGRAM] 38...Kg7 39. Qf6+ Kg8 40. Qf7+ Kh8 50. QxR+ Kg7 51. Qf8+ Kg6 52. Qf6+ Kh5 53. g4# 33...Rb1 was
   Aug-20-16 M N Sher vs J Pinski, 1996 (replies)
Mendrys: Like <al wazir> above I saw the game moves and figured that 29...Rxd6 30. Rxd6 was best but wasn't sure of a clear win here: [DIAGRAM] the engines certainly like this position with Stockfish giving it a +2.7 evaluation but really the forced win is above my pay grade. Not that ...
   Aug-10-16 H Seifert vs M Szmyd, 2009 (replies)
Mendrys: Masterly use of the gaping hole left by the exchange of the dark squared bishops. In his last 3 moves Seifert either left a piece en prise or put one so on purpose. Too bad I didn't solve this one though.
   Aug-08-16 O Borik vs C Renner, 1999 (replies)
Mendrys: Gawd <offramp>, now I have to put you on my...wait, let's not get into that again. <mworld: now that was a demolition derby!> An apt description of this game!
   Aug-05-16 M Lyell vs M Grigoryan, 2016 (replies)
Mendrys: One would think the game score must be truncated but both the pgn download and the replay from the official site have the same score.
   Jun-15-16 Grischuk vs Topalov, 2015 (replies)
Mendrys: Hmm..Perhaps the utility of a puzzle like this, where best play leads to a likely draw yet the OTB moves shows the "wrong" line, is that it gets us in the habit of checking more than just the obvious moves. That being said given Grischuk's horrible continuation and how easy it was ...
   Jun-01-16 W Winter vs Sultan Khan, 1931 (replies)
Mendrys: <TheFocus: I now refer to it the summer of our discount tents> Now that's funny! Given the deluge of checks that Sultan Khan had to endure before resigning it sorta fits the game too.
   May-22-16 Blatny vs E Vladimirov, 1989 (replies)
Mendrys: Not all puzzles are "Black/White to play and win" though to be fair this puzzle is a little more than insane. In my opinion this one requires a computer or for the solver to be more than just a very strong player to solve and find the forced draw that the engines seem to think is ...
   Apr-24-16 M Taleb vs A Kakageldyev, 1998 (replies)
Mendrys: <I believe this pun maybe referencing to Apr/24/1915, the day the Armenian Genocide started.> Wasn't that in Turkey and how does the pun relate to events in Turkey? The game was referenced as the "Tradedy of Elista" soon after the game as noted in this 18 year old article also
   Apr-22-16 D Will vs S Robinson, 2012 (replies)
Mendrys: It was <FSR>! He did it! I'm not usually one to complain about the quality of games but this is just a beat down. Though the depth of my humility knows no bound and I am frequently astonished at how humble I can be, I daresay that I have a few games of my own that I should ...
