   Jan-26-15 N Barsalou vs B Wall, 1980 (replies)
 
Oxspawn: I had sensed that early week positions since the turn of the year have been more challenging. I did not get some of them but was not complaining – it was more satisfying than shooting fish in a barrel (did anyone ever actually do this as a sport?). Today we revert to the Monday ...
 
   Jan-22-15 J Sammour Hasbun vs A Ivanov, 2013 (replies)
 
Oxspawn: I did not find 22. Bf6. Instead I became convinced that 22. Bf8 was the key. It looked good after 23. Nxf8 but a bit silly after 23. Rxe6. However, I possess the virtue of loyalty and continue to have affection for this losing move. In a parallel universe..... Winning is definitely ...
 
   Jan-19-15 J Wempe vs Zhaoqin Peng, 2005 (replies)
 
Oxspawn: The king has only one baseball bat and only the knight protecting h2 so cannot defend once the knight falls. 32. Rxf1+ 33. Kxf1 Qf2# 33. Rxf1 or Qxf1 Qh2# The white queen was chased around for a while before finding herself isolated and irrelevant.
 
   Jan-12-15 E Parr vs E Gullaksen, 1995 (replies)
 
Oxspawn: Black shoots, white parries, black scores direct from the corner. 25. Rxc1+ 26. Kxc1 Qa1#
 
   Jan-09-15 Reti vs Capablanca, 1928 (replies)
 
Oxspawn: Usually I make the wrong move with the right colour, but today a development. I spent ten minutes wondering what was wrong with 15. Qh5+ following by 16. bxh8 and thinking this should be an easy win for white. Then a new understanding dawned. Not…White’s…Turn. Roll on Monday.

Oxspawn: I propose 27. Be6 threatening Rf7+ and after the king moves Qg8 when the black knight cannot intervene if the king is on e8 and can only intervene ineffectively if the king is on g8. So it seems to me that 27.Be6 fxe6 is forced (leaving out 27. Qg1+ which only seems to capture a

Oxspawn: Sharper than usual for a Tuesday but I am not complaining, since I earned my coffee!
 
   Jan-05-15 Carlsen vs Nijboer, 2005 (replies)
 
Oxspawn: Qd3 not e2. I moved to the wrong neighbourhood. Only just the wrong neighbourhood but missed out on the good schools,free parking, low taxes and quick win.
 
   Dec-30-14 Topalov vs Anand, 2004 (replies)
 
Oxspawn: Glad to hear a3 works <once> since that was my selection... but (i) I did not bring it home and (ii) I completely failed to spot the stunning game continuation. So a3 may be a 'win' but it was not a clever spot (in my hands at least). I did not plug it in.
 
   Dec-29-14 R Slobodjan vs R Prasca Sosa, 2004 (replies)
 
Oxspawn: The black king manages to be both encircled and exposed. Only the h pawn defends with purpose. And on this final Monday of the year, white sacrifices the rook, rather than the queen. 32. Rxh6 Rxh6 (or Kg4) 32. Qg5 #
