   Jan-11-17 D Fridman vs S Petrosian, 2015 (replies)
 
Mendrys: <morfishine: I'm not sure about this one, its hard to even categorize it as a "puzzle"> I know what you mean. It's certainly not the most "puzzly" of puzzles.
 
   Jan-10-17 Fischer vs W A Nyman, 1964 (replies)
 
Mendrys: <After years and years of work. It is not meteoric. He "just got it" after years and years of work, years and years.... years and years. Not so difficult to understand.> Of course he put in years of work to rise to the top of the game. There were also a lot of other players ...
 
   Jan-06-17 Fischer vs Myagmarsuren, 1967 (replies)
 
Mendrys: The Berlin attack was weeks ago. It's very likely a coincidence that the attackers home country has been invoked by CG.
 
   Dec-28-16 Karjakin vs Fressinet, 2016
 
Mendrys: 33. Nxd6! is the better move to find though interestingly 33. Qxc8+ also wins because of blacks back rank weakness. [DIAGRAM] 33. Qxc8+ Bxc8 34. Nxd6 Qe6 (...Be6 35. Nc8! Qf8 36. Rd8) 35. Nxc8 Black must now play 35...h6 to prevent mate. The ensuing knight, bishop, rook, and a ...
 
   Dec-22-16 A Anastasian vs F Izeta Txabarri, 1996 (replies)
 
Mendrys: I too went with Rxg7+. It does win rather convincingly though it is objectively not as strong as 21. Bh6. I saw 21. Rxg7+ Kxg7 22. Rd7+ Qxd7 23. Nxd7 [DIAGRAM] with the dual threat of Qxf6+ and Qxa5 and an overwhelming position.
 
   Dec-16-16 M Vachier-Lagrave vs Aronian, 2016 (replies)
 
Mendrys: He may have been lost anyway but I'm not sure what Aronion had in mind with 34...Rd1. [DIAGRAM] The rook seems to have no play on this file. Easy to say though when you're seeing the results. 36...b6 and 37...c5 are very puzzling. Was Aronian pretty much giving up throwing away ...
 
   Dec-16-16 Caruana vs Nakamura, 2016 (replies)
 
Mendrys: <Shamot: Could anybody, please, play out the game and show me white's victory. It is hard for me to understand how black is mated. Thank you in advance!> As others like <AylerKupp> and others have noted a forced mate is a ways off. There is, however, the force line from ...
 
   Dec-06-16 I Bahgat vs Rodolfo Cardoso, 1957 (replies)
 
Mendrys: Nice one Chessgames. I wasn't positive that this was a spoiler as I spent a little too much time trying to find the "correct" solution but did feel good about rejecting 24. Ng5? precisely because of 24...Qxg2.
 
   Dec-05-16 D Fridman vs H Odeev, 1996
 
Mendrys: I agree, <chrisowen>. The variation starting 38. Rxf7+ is easy enough to see but the resulting endgame isn't necessarily a Monday puzzle. This is where some endgame knowledge and technique are good to have. Knowing why a resulting endgame is easily winning and how to exploit a
 
   Nov-27-16 Carlsen - Karjakin World Championship (2016) (replies)
 
Mendrys: <The Rocket: Yet the match is close due to a number of rather absurd circumstances. 1. Carlsens uncharacteristic failure to convert games 2. Carlsens madness to overpress in a position where he is in far more danger to go astray (which he did) than his opponent.> This can be ...
