   Mar-10-08 Botvinnik vs Stoltz, 1926 (replies)
 
Richerby: (Botvinnik says that Stoltz played on for a few moves after the final position here, though he doesn't give the moves.)
 
   Jun-04-07 M Skalicka vs F Havlicek, 1913 (replies)
 
Richerby: <alwazir: In fact, it's hard to find a move for white that doesn't win.> 27.♕h7/h8+ should lose pretty quickly. ;-)
 
   May-31-07 L Eperjesi vs B Perenyi, 1980 (replies)
 
Richerby: <spin: anyone want to throw 29...fxe6 30.Qxg6 in a computer?> Fritz 8 does very badly on this position. To 15 ply, it's scoring it as -1.00 (i.e., *black* ahead by a pawn). Oh, wait. I forgot to give white his ♘f3! Let's try that again... 29... fxe6 30.♕xg6+ ...
 
   May-30-07 Zsuzsa Polgar vs Speelman, 1993
 
Richerby: <mack: Speelman's finest hour.> Surely that would be reaching the semi-final of the 1988-90 World Championship Candidates cycle?
 
   May-29-07 S N Ahmed vs Z Rahman, 2006 (replies)
 
Richerby: <Draw Odds: By the time Sunday comes, the puzzle should be so easy that it solves itself.> This should be about the right level. White to play: [DIAGRAM] :-)
 
   May-25-07 Minic vs Fischer, 1970 (replies)
 
Richerby: <MostlyAverageJoe: Some more analysis (HIARCS 11.1 MP): starting from drawish postion at move 17> Drawish?!? I'll accept that the position may well be level but, with almost all of the material still on the board and almost all of it pointing at the other guy's king, the ...
 
   May-23-07 K Moll vs Falkbeer, 1864 (replies)
 
Richerby: <YourRang: People who call the Monday "easy" -- are haters? Methinks you've gone a bit overboard. :-|> Sure but it's really tedious reading the litany of ``Oh, this is so easy'' comments every Monday. The whole point of Monday puzzles is that they're easy. Saying that a ...
 
   May-15-07 R Sanguineti vs Fischer, 1959 (replies)
 
Richerby: No, it just means that younger players often lack the consistency of their more mature counterparts.
 
   May-15-07 Bareev vs G Timoshchenko, 1986 (replies)
 
Richerby: <slowrobot: the computer resigned. I didn't even know they did that.> Computers are typically set to resign once they're down more than, say, four pawns' worth of material. Of course, this is adjustabe in any decent program.
 
   Apr-20-07 King's Indian, Samisch Variation (E80) (replies)
 
Richerby: Surely, Karpov vs Kasparov, 1993 ought to be one of the featured games for the Saemisch variation?
