   Feb-01-16 J Houska vs T Hebbes, 2014 (replies)
Oxspawn: <Sally Simpson> <Solving these banal game winning puzzles are of more practical value than Queen sac - check-check and checkmate puzzles> I did not get this today but I am not complaining. In fact, I agree with the second half of this sentence - 'one glimpse and it's ...
   Jan-18-16 Capablanca vs W Murdock, 1919 (replies)
Oxspawn: I thought there was hope for white with 29. Qd4+ Rd6 30. Qxd6+ Kxd6 31. Rxe2 Rxe2 32. Bxf4+ Seems to leave white with a bishop and pawns against rook and pawns. Not good, but you would think Capablanca could make it work. But then I realised that if 29. Qd4+ Kc8 30. ...
   Jan-14-16 K Piorun vs M Bartel, 2014 (replies)
Oxspawn: I took a long look at 32. Re7 and more briefly at 32. Bg6 with a view to following it with h5, but then decided that resigning could be the only solution to this problem. I never even suspected I have stumbled on the right first move and after I played through to Bd3 it took an age ...
   Jan-12-16 S Thatte vs M Liu, 2013 (replies)
Oxspawn: I saw 20 Bxg5 21. Bxc8 (if 21. Qxg5 Qxc2#) .. Bxd2+ 22. Rxd2 Qxc8 Black is well up in material (Q+R for 2 rooks) not sure if it is enough for white to resign. If black is still allowed to castle then the other rook can be active quickly and the b pawn will become ...
   Jan-11-16 S Bjerke vs M Freitag, 2014 (replies)
Oxspawn: Failed on a Monday! Went into a long sequence starting with 37Qd1 and got stuck. Felt more like a Freitag than a Montag.
   Jan-08-16 J L Hammer vs M Krasenkow, 2014 (replies)
Oxspawn: <houtenton> <Can anyone explain me what I'm doing wrong?> I bought a chess board and had the same problem. I pressed all the squares but it refuses to make any moves at all without my help.
   Jan-05-16 G Guseinov vs S Fedorchuk, 2014 (replies)
Oxspawn: I thought his looked like an ultra-easy Monday puzzle until I noticed the black rook on c7 and abandoned the idea of using the queen as a battering ram on h7. Then found this satisfying finish. 37. Nxh7 Qxh7 38. Qf8# Counter attacking through 37Bxg2+ 38. Kxg2, 38. Rc2+ Kg1 ...
   Dec-30-15 Eljanov vs Y Kuzubov, 2014 (replies)
Oxspawn: Only because it is a position do I know not to play 36. cxd3 immediately. I see that will lead to 37. Nxc3 and the black queenside pawns are ripe for plucking. There is only one other move that stops the queen escaping. 36. Be1+ Now if the king takes the bishop, then after ...
   Dec-29-15 F Osmanodja vs H M Klek, 2014 (replies)
Oxspawn: With white about to mate on g7, black has to have something immediate and decisive. Nf5+ looks dramatic enough but is hopeless. Neither Rxg4+ or Qxh3+, has any follow up. A pity since it I had an idea that the answer lay in driving the white king northwards towards the ...
   Dec-22-15 N Croad vs J G Pettersen, 2014 (replies)
Oxspawn: If the bishop was a queen white could mate on h7. So can the bishop please step out of her way? 16. Bd5+ Qxd5 (or cxd5) 17. Qh7# Or 16. Bd5+ Rf7 17. Bxa2 and mayhem followed by mate
