   Feb-17-18 N Murshed vs L Schandorff, 1982
NBZ: A very nice finish by Niaz Murshed. 33. Rxf5! with the idea of meeting Kxf5 with Qb1+!
   Feb-16-18 D Yuffa vs Bologan, 2015 (replies)
NBZ: Just like Richard Taylor, I didn't see that the White king was in check. That makes it a more interesting puzzle, because the natural Qxh6+ Kg8 falls short since the Black queen guards both e6 and g7, so the move f4 is needed to divert the queen from the defence of e6. Of course with ...
   Feb-14-18 A Giri vs Aronian, 2012 (replies)
NBZ: Kept waiting for the white knight to reach e1!
   Feb-14-18 Larsen vs Joel Benjamin, 1987 (replies)
NBZ: The earlier part of the game is rather interesting. In an equal middlegame, Black makes all the running, and White just uses that energy against him.
   Feb-09-18 Le Quang Liem vs M M Kazhgaleyev, 2016 (replies)
NBZ: This puzzle has a nice twist. Bxg7 stood out, but I tried for very long to make the attack work. Obviously it doesn't, too few white attacking pieces. Finally it dawned on me that if the queen were on b2, Ra3 traps the black queen. Aha! Bxg7 must still be played, but only as a way to ...
   Feb-07-18 Tired Old Man vs C W Daco, 2002 (replies)
NBZ: Shouldn't it be Tired Old Computer?
   Feb-06-18 Joel Benjamin vs Mephisto, 1987 (replies)
NBZ: It is nice to see a computer being destroyed in such patzer-like fashion. Ah the good old days of the Berlin Wall.
   Jan-26-18 I Kovalenko vs Fressinet, 2016 (replies)
NBZ: Ah silly me. I saw Rb7 Rxb7 Rxd8+, but was thrown off by the sequence Rb7 Ra1+ Kh2 (Kg2 Qe4+ wins outright for Black) Qxg6 hxg6! (for some reason I only calculated Rxd7 which leads to Qxh5+ and mate).
   Jan-22-18 Taimanov vs M Beilin, 1955 (replies)
NBZ: <radtop> 29. Qc8+ wins back the rook, but you are right that this looks better for Black than the game. I suspect Black completely missed the Rxf4 idea, and if so 28. ... Qg3 threatening mate and seemingly winning an exchange looks very promising. 29. Rxf4 must have come as a ...
   Jan-19-18 Kramnik vs Svidler, 2018
NBZ: <Marmot> After 18... Bxe5 19 Rxe7 Bxc3 20 bxc3 Rxc3 I reckon 21. Rxa7! is very strong: if 21. ... Rxa7 22. Rxe8+ wins; if 21. ... Rb8 22. Bf4 followed by Raxb7.
