Oxspawn: <yadasampati> I sometimes post a 'solution' (if I see one, and often wrong) before I look at the game line and the other comments. Testing myself I suppose. But why do we bother to replay a game that's already been played? I suppose we enjoy it.

Oxspawn: Monday was Tuesday, Tuesday was Wednesday and Wednesday left me with a week ending.... I resign from this week.
   Jan-16-17 L Machado vs K McDonald, 2016 (replies)
Oxspawn: If you can persuade the rook and queen to resist the overwhelming urge to take the pawn on g7, the rest follows. The queen has to stop short at f6; the black pawn does its duty and the white rook sneaks in around the back to g7.The king is trapped by its own armed guards.
   Dec-20-16 H Walkerling vs Hanssen, 1928 (replies)
Oxspawn: Well.... I saw that after axb4, black cannot not take the rook without losing the queen. So I assumed black would play something like Qc7 and I then struggled to find a conclusive follow up. If losing a bishop was a resignation matter I would be resigning a lot of games a lot ...

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". ...
   Aug-30-16 Navara vs B Michiels, 2015 (replies)
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 ...
   Jul-20-16 G Timoshenko vs R Verdes Nadal, 2006 (replies)
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 ...
