Oxspawn: Even if I cannot understand them!
 
   Sep-26-16 M Pitz vs S Stark, 2009 (replies)
 
Oxspawn: I played 9. Qf7+ Kh6 10. Ne6+ Black can throw a knight and then a pawn in front of the bishop so this is slower, but we end with the same result But I see I get zero points. Oh well. I am happy, the game is won. I have a coffee. I am not a tiger. It's Monday. Tigers sleep on ...
 
   Sep-21-16 Tartakower vs E Steiner, 1921 (replies)
 
Oxspawn: I saw 25. Rb8 Kxb8 26. Nxd7+ Kc8 and the difficulty as the white knight is under attack and white is also vulnerable to a back rank mate. I thought it would mean playing defensively 27. Qd1 followed by h3 to give the king an escape route. I not only failed to consider 25.
 
   Sep-12-16 E Keogh vs W Lewis, 1966 (replies)
 
Oxspawn: I found it damned hard to find a quick win for black. After a few minutes I realised it was white to play and the game got easier. The laws of chess defeated me: "The player controlling the white pieces is named "White"; the player controlling the black pieces is named "Black". ...

Oxspawn: There is a slow food movement, (properly cooked meals – post-prandial naps – thank you Italy). I belong to the slow chess movement – brain works slowly and falls asleep at crucial moments. This long answer shows how to take the slow road. The obvious move (Rh7) ‘looks’ wrong to me ...

Oxspawn: <Penguincw> <Apollo 11 landing anniversary: Jul/20/1969> If you look carefully at the shadows on the board, and the way the king's cross flutters as you play the move, you will see that the knight could not have possibly moved to g5. This 'move' must have been projected ...
 
   Jul-14-16 E Cordova vs K Miton, 2015 (replies)
 
Oxspawn: <Steve.Patzer: Well, I got the first two moves. Does that count for anything?> Well I got the first ONE move as I did not expect white to play Nd2 and probably had no idea how to continue but (as it is Thursday) I awarded myself a fresh pot of coffee. So I think you must be on

Oxspawn: <lost in space> <"trivial"!!??>. Speak for yourself, please! For some of us getting the Tueday puzzle is a cause for celebration and a cup of coffee. I am drinking mine now. Cheers.

Oxspawn: If the black queen checks on f2, the white king has some wiggle room. The black rook must sacrifice itself to move the king into harm’s way. 27………….. Rf1+ 28 Kxf1 Qf2#
 
   Jul-08-16 C Storey vs D Howell, 2015 (replies)
 
Oxspawn: <Kings Domain> I thought the point was that black could mate with the queen on either h2 or g3 and that White could protect against either threat but not both. But you are right: Rc3+ is needed after 26. Qg2.
