   May-20-18 A Esipenko vs M Mikadze, 2018 (replies)
Ratt Boy: Let me join the chorus of those who love the pun.
   May-12-18 V Gashimov vs Gelfand, 2009 (replies)
Ratt Boy: <Nisjesram: < wazir: What happens after 14...Bxe6 ? 15. Qe5 Bf6/Bf8 (15...f6 16. Qxe6#) 16. Qg3+> That is fine <AL wazir> except that 16 move should be 16. Qg7 If you have had good sense to take me off ignore, you would be able to read this> After 15…♗f6, ...

Ratt Boy: I miss the Benoni. I never see it anymore in high-level GM games. <sigh…>
   Apr-30-18 S Shankland vs C Holt, 2010 (replies)
Ratt Boy: <Delboy: 18. O-O is not bad, but doesn't 18. Bg8 win instantly? e.g. 18. ... ♕e8 19. ♕e6+ ♔f8 20. ♖d8, or 18. ... ♘d7 19. ♕f7+ ♔d8 20. ♕f8+ ♔c7 21. ♕xh6> The latter line seems to win the Exchange, but it gives Black ...
   Apr-21-18 A Stefanova vs R Tozer, 1997 (replies)
Ratt Boy: I really like the simple 17.♕g5. All of White's pieces are developed and active; one of Black's is, and she's not exactly active. Boom! I now invite you to resign.
   Mar-06-18 A Rychagov vs A Lanin, 2008 (replies)
Ratt Boy: <saturn2: <12... Be7 (not Bd6?) and Black is OK> Not sure about that. After 13 Nb5 there is the threat Bc7 and the black queen gets into trouble.> 12...♗e7 13.♘b5, e5 handles the ♗c7 threat. It loosens Black's position a lot, and White should get ...
   Mar-04-18 Sznapik vs N Gaprindashvili, 1976 (replies)
Ratt Boy: Beautiful game by the former Women's World Champ. I saw 25...♕xc1+ as the only way to fend off mate, but I couldn't see the brilliant follow-up, 26...♗xb2, which of course is obvious once played. Sznapik might have gotten that familiar "Oh, phukk!" feeling that we've ...
   Jan-18-18 Reti vs F Schubert, 1915 (replies)
Ratt Boy: How 'bout 24.♘e5, ♖ah8 25.f3, ♖h1+ 26.♔f2, ♖1h2+ 27.♔g3 ? Does that hold? Black can make scary mate threats with 27...♘e6, but I like 28.♘xg6!, holding the h4 square.
   Jan-14-18 Sultan Khan vs Capablanca, 1930 (replies)
Ratt Boy: <MissScarlett: Michael Glover Atkins also had a perfect 2-0 record, but he got killed in the war whilst the Cuban cowered across the Atlantic.> "Cowered", huh? WWI was, by any rational account, a stupid war. In contrast to WWII, the countries weren't fighting against ...
   Jan-02-18 Short vs E Blomqvist, 2017 (replies)
Ratt Boy: <Once: …The clearest and best is Short's 36. Qg7+, exploiting the fact that the black back rank is weak. It's mate in 4. I was thinking it's mate in 3. Mist the …Rc8 interposition.
