   Jul-13-18 S Boden vs Belaiev, 1867 (replies)
Ratt Boy: Outside of the Queen, Black has no pieces developed in the final position. I wonder if perhaps that contributed to his quick demise?!

Ratt Boy: <tpstar: 16. gxf3 ♗h2+ 17. ♔g2 (17. ♔h1? ♖e1+ 18. ♕f1 ♖xf1+ 19. ♔g2 ♖g1#) ♖e1 and the only defense to 18 ... ♖g1# is 18. ♕f1 ♖xf1 19. ♔xf1 ♕f4 winning quickly (20. ♗g4 h5).> He also has ...
   Jun-27-18 Larsen vs Ljubojevic, 1975
Ratt Boy: This hasn't been named GOTD yet? "Bent over." "Get Bent." "Bent, Broken."

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.

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 ...
