   Jun-22-18 Topalov vs W So, 2016 (replies)
RKnight: <Walter Glattke: 28.Nf1 parries the mate-at-once> Not so. 28...Ng1#
   Jun-14-18 J L Hammer vs Carlsen, 2000
RKnight: Young Magnus got Hammered.
   Jun-10-18 Gelfand vs Beliavsky, 1991 (replies)
RKnight: I think White would have improved over the game line with 30 gxh7+ Kxh7, 31 Qc2+ and the white position is more defensible.
   Jun-09-18 Averbakh vs Kotov, 1953 (replies)
RKnight: There might be a better continuation for black than in the game. Instead of 33...Nd7, how about 33...Ng4, 34 Kxg4 Rg8+, 35 Kf5 Rf6# (if 34 fxg4 or 34 Rxg4, Rf8#). I don't have an engine to check this out.
   Jun-08-18 C Stanley vs Morphy, 1857
RKnight: Not clear why Stanley gave up the ghost. He had some play left after 31 Bf2 Rh2+, 32 Kf1 for instance.
   Jun-06-18 Morphy vs NN, 1857 (replies)
RKnight: This game is a wonderful work of art by Morphy, and we should just appreciate it as such. Never mind that NN played weakly; how many of us could deliver such a game against comparably weak players? None, I dare say, certainly not I. There is beauty in chess.
   Jun-03-18 J Nogueiras vs Miles, 1994 (replies)
RKnight: Less obvious to me is how to play if black plays 26... Bxd6 in the game line (instead of 26... Kxd6). Perhaps 27 Rxf7 Qxf7, 28 Ng5 Qg8 (multiple forks with other Q moves), 29 Nb5+ Kb1, 30 Nxd6. Is there something more convincing?
   May-30-18 A Heimann vs B Stillger, 2017 (replies)
RKnight: <stacase> I think there is a "I solved it!" reporting bias. For instance, I saw 25 Re4 Rxe4 26 Nxe4 and wins... but I thought 24...R(8)d8 saved the day. It doesn't, so I didn't solve it, and I'm not proud about missing 25 Rxc4. So I wouldn't have posted except to react to your
   May-20-18 A Kats vs C Baginskaite, 2012 (replies)
RKnight: <agb2002> On your line: C.2) 35.Rxg2 Qxe1+ 36.Rg1 Qxg1+ 37.Kxg1 Bc5+, the last move is not check, so I see only 37...fxg6 and a perpetual.
   May-11-18 B Hayden vs W A Winser, 1948 (replies)
RKnight: Nice puzzle! If 25...Qxe5, 26 fxe5 Bxh6, 27 Nxh6+ Kg2, 28 N(h6)xf7 and white also wins, albeit not as spectacularly as in the game line.
