   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 ...

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
   Jul-12-16 Schirmer vs Schleipen, 1956 (replies)
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.
   Jul-11-16 Lenderman vs Nakamura, 2007 (replies)
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.
   Jul-04-16 Berk Olcum vs T Tsereteli, 2009 (replies)
Oxspawn: <thegoodanarchist> I agree Mondays are supposed to be easy and I am one of the weakest visitors to this site - but even I thought this should have started one move earlier to make it instructive. <Once> They may have scored 52% but only the lunatic fridge can be truly ...
   Jun-21-16 G Mittermayr vs C Kleijn, 2009 (replies)
Oxspawn: I was a bit like England last night. I dominated this position completely except for finding the winning move. Maybe if I had some different pieces on the board.....
   Jun-14-16 Grischuk vs Topalov, 2015 (replies)
Oxspawn: Yes but. The fact I saw that white cannot play 37. Kf3 was (for me) in itself a victory. After 37. Kf1, exchanging queens and black taking the h pawn white was a pawn down. I saw the actual play and felt I had triumphed for white. A very satisfying Tuesday.
   Jun-13-16 C Orbaan vs Pilnik, 1956 (replies)
Oxspawn: <Penguincw> It must be Monday level as you gave us a queen sacrifice! 24..... Qxe2! if 25 Bxe2 Nxg3+ double check 26. Kg1 Nxe2+ forking king and queen if 25. Bxe4 (or Bg2) Bxe4 followed by mate on g2 or Nxg3 followed by mate on g2
   May-19-16 Capablanca vs M Fonaroff, 1918 (replies)
Oxspawn: Well I started 20 Nh6+ Kh8 because it just looked right, but after that it turns out that Capa is better than me. He had to get the black, king, queen and rook all to shift so he could deliver mate on the back rank, and also had to deal with the pesky bishop. I agree with ...
