   Dec-01-14 B Vioreanu vs G Guseinov, 1994 (replies)
Oxspawn: Can we have this one again tomorrow? One move earlier. I might get it.
   Nov-18-14 S Kun vs G Merenyi, 1997 (replies)
Oxspawn: Wrong but not actually embarrassed. A draw! Hurrah!
   Nov-17-14 Csom vs G Gaertner, 1994 (replies)
Oxspawn: I missed the best continuation after 26......Ng8. Must try harder even on a Monday.
   Nov-13-14 Martinez Martinez vs J Converset, 1994 (replies)
Oxspawn: Just like to point out that if you start with 22. Nf5..... things do not go so well for white. On the plus side it kept me occupied me for my coffee break...
   Nov-11-14 V Taksrud vs H Oieroset, 2014 (replies)
Oxspawn: The black king has been kettled; only one black piece can come to his aid. 44 Rxh7 Rxh7 (If Kxh7 45. Rh4#) 45 Qd4+ Rg7 46 Rh4#
   Nov-10-14 Mayet vs Hirschfeld, 1861 (replies)
Oxspawn: Good fun. After the rook sacrifices the queen behaves like a knight, one square a time. Nice of white to let the mate happen.
   Nov-05-14 A Sokolov vs A Desboeufs, 2004 (replies)
Oxspawn: I assume that the black queen has grazed on a pawn far from her own paddock and white must now herd Desboeufs into a cul-de-sac. 19. Qh8+ Ke7 20. Rxf7+ Kxf7 21. Rf1+ Ke7 22. Qxg7+ Ke8 23. Qf7# (or Bg6#) The bishop prevents escape to g7 while the e pawn guards d7 and f7. But
   Oct-30-14 A Rodriguez Vila vs G Kanefsck, 2007 (replies)
Oxspawn: I kept trying 30. B (or Q) f4 which fails after black plays Q d7. Very nice finish. However, the move that most impressed me was 22. Ng6. It took me ages to see why black could not simply take with the pawn (23. f7). Seeing/not seeing that kind of position in advance is the ...
   Oct-28-14 A Herzog vs K Petschar, 1994 (replies)
Oxspawn: The easiest thing to spot is that black will mate next move so the general strategy for white should be DO SOMETHING QUICK! The queen can take the a6 pawn but the king escapes via b4 and c3 and the best white can do is to seize a rook or swap queens neither of which saves. However, ...
   Oct-27-14 NN vs V Grimm, 1864 (replies)
Oxspawn: <sfm: Vincent Grimm ..He was around 64 when this game was played, and died 6 years later.> A delayed reaction to his win? NN on the other hand lives on to this day.
