   Sep-13-09 T Karatekin vs P Hummel, 2003 (replies)
 
SomeoneElse: Congratulations to the Caltech team on the match win. As a Caltech alumnus and former member of the basketball team I can confirm that we often struggled on the court. However, we played with the tenacity that Hummel shows in this game and our victories, while rare, were still ...

SomeoneElse: <eblunt: To me these puzzles are : Find the move that 1) wins outright or 2) clearly wins material , that is better than any other move. > I have always tried to look at these puzzles as "what move would I make if I were playing the game in a tournament and wanted to ...
 
   Aug-28-08 A Luczak vs Fedorowicz, 1979 (replies)
 
SomeoneElse: I found 32. Rg4, the same wrong answer as Luczak. So, do I feel good that I got the same move as someone rated 2370, bad that I didn't get today's puzzle, or good that I DID get yesterday's puzzle that proved such a challenge for many others?
 
   Jul-09-08 Salov vs J Horvath, 1983 (replies)
 
SomeoneElse: I really liked this puzzle because it is exactly the kind of situation over-the-board where I usually manage to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory: "Look he can't perpetually check me with his rook because I'll move Kh3, then I'll have Qxf6+ and victory will be mine!" Making
 
   May-08-08 John L Watson (replies)
 
SomeoneElse: Today's puzzle was Watson v Z Fayvinov 1993, white to move at move 24. John is living in Lincoln, Nebraska, USA, and is very involved in the chess community there. A great chess player, author, and just a really nice guy to work with.
 
   Jan-28-08 R Shirley Jr vs B Wall, 1982 (replies)
 
SomeoneElse: Noticed right away that after 10...Bxf4 11. Rxf4 the white Ng5 is hanging. Started looking for a way to move the black Nf6 to a threatening square on move 11, making 12...Qxg5 possible. Couldn't find one. Then realized it was Monday and I had not yet looked at the checks on move
 
   Nov-02-07 R Persitz vs R Blumenfeld, 1958 (replies)
 
SomeoneElse: I must not have had enough caffeine earlier. My line beginning with move 26 actually starts at 23, as shown correctly by kevin86.
 
   Sep-17-07 D Cramling vs H C Bergstrom, 1975 (replies)
 
SomeoneElse: <Monkey King> You could easily be right; I'm certainly no expert. 8. ...Bb4 9. Nd6+ Bxd6 10. Qxd6 Ng6 11. Nb5 looks pretty good for white to me. Maybe 8. ...Bb4 9. Nd6+ Ke7 10. Nxc8 is better for black? If 8. ...a6 is a blunder, it is certainly one that many players at my ...
 
   Jun-29-06 J Henningsen vs R Borik, 1979 (replies)
 
SomeoneElse: 5...dxe5 6 Bf7+ Kxf7 7 Qxd8
