   Mar-04-17 Maroczy vs H Suechting, 1905
 
Ron: Stockfish 7 agrees with <Randomvisitor> on White's 18th move. Instead of 18. g4, which is nevertheless a good move, Stockfish 7 gives 18. Nxe4. Play could go: 18. ... fxe4 19. Bxe7 Qxe7 20. Qa7 Nf6 21. O‑O Qc7 22. b5 cxb5 23. Rb1 Nd7 24. Rxb5 Nxe5 25. Rxb7 Nc6 26. Rxc7 Nxa7 ...
 
   Feb-22-17 Adams vs J L Hammer, 2017 (replies)
 
Ron: By the end of move 28, Adams has an advantageous position. On move 29, Adams plays the pseudo-pawn sac 29. h4!, which is also the first choice for Stockfish 7.

  tpstar: <Ron> I am very much enjoying your Game Collection: Games Involving Queen Sacrifices and have already found several excellent examples to use as puzzles, for my students along with our state magazine and another chess site.

Note your latest diagram has 2 Black h Pawns. =)

  Ron: Thanks <tpstar> I will update the diagram anyway. I created the game collection of queen sacrifices before sacrifice explorer was created I think, so I went by games I knew about and came across here.

  Honza Cervenka: Hi Ron,

I don’t know whether you have read my recent messages at Kibitzer’s Café or not and so I am posting it here too. On Monday of last week I have become proud father of (the second) daughter named Aneta. You can see her picture on the site of regional newspaper “Kladensky denik” (Kladno’s Daily) at http://kladensky.denik.cz/miminka/m... where is just now till this Friday (12:00 A.M. CET) running a polling contest for the most sympathetic baby born last week in regional maternity hospitals organized by the newspaper. Personally I am not much interested in such a kind of competitions but my wife likes it very much and she would be much happy to see our little girl on the top. Right now we are on the second place in very tense and close race with two other contenders and so every additional vote is very important for the final outcome. If you would like to help me to make my wife even happier than she already is now, just click on the link above, flag “Aneta Cervenkova, Stredokluky” (the first name in gray box on the right side on the screen) and hit the “hlasovat” button below. It is possible to vote repeatedly always after 60 minutes from one IP address... :-D

Thanks and warm regards, Honza
