   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.
   Oct-23-14 G Benini vs Reggio, 1911 (replies)
Oxspawn: O dear. 32. Qh7 (which is what I meant!) is not mate! That would have been embarrassing.
   Oct-22-14 Beliavsky vs Vasiukov, 1979 (replies)
Oxspawn: (And time to study the instructive lessons from others).
   Oct-21-14 Stefansson vs Baburin, 1991 (replies)
Oxspawn: <Sally Simpson> <Got this no problem at all>... <I never polish my ego on these things>... <I'd be be pretty fed up if I missed a forced dove tail mate in two from an OTB game> Looks a bit shiny from where I sit in 'must do better' corner. Are you sure there ...
   Oct-17-14 V Tukmakov vs J Sikora-Lerch, 1977 (replies)
Oxspawn: and thank you <Once> get some good teach-ins on this site....
   Oct-16-14 Kotronias vs J Orso, 1986 (replies)
Oxspawn: 24. Rh8 looked hopeless to me… shows what I know. Kotronias could ‘see’ the queen mating on d8: I couldn’t and didn’t. Instead I had 24. R(h7)xg7 Rxg7 25. Qh8+ Ke7 (if Rg8 ….26. Qxg8+) 26. Qxg7+ I didn’t see my way to mate without setting up a board, but I think (at a ...
   Oct-15-14 Short vs Nunn, 1979 (replies)
Oxspawn: The c pawn is overstretched and the knight is begging to be taken. I had 42. Rxc4 43. bxc4 Qa1+ 44. Kf2 Rb2 45. Re2 Rxc2 46. Rxc2 Qb1 Looks like black can clean up the pawns and bring its bishop into play. Short did not play bxc4 but nothing else seems attractive. If ...
   Oct-14-14 J Saradjen vs M Perunovic, 2004 (replies)
Oxspawn: Can't lay claim to the game line but then it didn;t occur to me that white would play ed4!
