   Sep-15-19 R H Steinmeyer vs Berliner, 1959 (replies)
RKnight: <erniecohen> 34...bxf4 seems more like a transposition that a cook. I'd like to pay tribute to Hans Berliner, as <landshark> said, one of the greatest correspondence players. Hans and I were colleagues at the university in the 1980's and 1990's, while he built Hitech, ...
   Jul-12-19 Gossip vs Tarrasch, 1889
RKnight: Not too much to Gossip about; he just gave away the store.
   Jul-11-19 L Gutman vs Kholmov, 1975 (replies)
RKnight: Good puzzle, Gutman used every one of his pieces. I didn't solve it because I failed to see the in-retrospect-obvious 26. Bh6+
   Jul-08-19 A Franck vs Portisch, 1958 (replies)
RKnight: OK, OK, not Monday, but it's a great midweek puzzle. I easily found the game line, but didn't really solve it, as that needs a convincing response to 26. Kb3. <agb2002> found it. I really like his (her) analyses when posted.
   Jun-15-19 Nakamura vs R Patterson, 2001
RKnight: In the 80's I played in the World Open and was in a similar situation as Roger, up the exchange but down two connected passed paws (well, Naka is up three connected passed pawns, but who's counting). I lost, but learned; very hard to stop such pawns.
   May-29-19 Anand vs H Wegner, 1987
RKnight: Lest one thinks resigning might have been premature, consider: 23...Nf4 24. Qxf7 Rg8 25. Rg7 with mate to follow
   May-29-19 L Day vs D Bailey, 1983 (replies)
RKnight: It requires some effort NOT to win. At least four moves will do it: 35. Bxf6+ or Qxf6+ or Rh7+ or Nxf6, even if the first two are quicker.
   May-09-19 Tarrasch vs Winawer, 1881 (replies)
RKnight: Winawer was not a winner. IMO his king side position started to deteriorate the moment he castled with 11. Bg5. And 19. Rh3 is the beginning of the end, as white threatens 20. Rxh7+ Kxh7, 21. Qh5#.
   Apr-05-19 Glucksberg vs Najdorf, 1929 (replies)
RKnight: A work of art. In the final position White is four pieces up and mated. You just don't see this anymore.
   Feb-22-19 Kamsky vs Anand, 1994 (replies)
RKnight: Deja Vu all over again.
