   Oct-16-19 Alekhine vs Tylor, 1937
TheBish: This could have been a much better puzzle a move earlier, but just one problem: The simple 42. Nxf6 also wins. I wonder if Alekhine thought it was an easier win as played, or if he was just being flashy. I would play the queen sham sac if I saw it OTB, regardless of whether it was a
   Oct-10-19 S Volkov vs Yifan Hou, 2008 (replies)
TheBish: Got the solution (which was pretty easy) and the improvement of 56. Bd6! (also the engine's choice), which is a cleaner and easier win.
   Sep-26-19 A Grosar vs Zsuzsa Polgar, 1991 (replies)
TheBish: A Grosar vs Zsuzsa Polgar, 1991 Black to play (31...?) "Medium" In a fantasy variation, I imagined 31...Qxh2+ 32. Kxh2 Rh4+ 33. Kg1 Rh1#. Of course this is ridiculous, as 31...Qxh2+?? is easily answered by 32. Rxh2. But this thought experiment quickly led me to the solution. ...
   Aug-22-19 I Nepomniachtchi vs Nakamura, 2019 (replies)
TheBish: I'm surprised to see only one comment here; maybe because this game wasn't broadcast live on this site. It was one of the better and most interesting games yesterday. Nice win of a pawn by Nepo in the late opening/early middlegame. And surprising push of the pawn by Naka (57...b4) ...
   Aug-06-19 Spielmann vs E Eliskases, 1932 (replies)
TheBish: I saw 37. Ba6 first, then realized I can grab an additional pawn with 37. Bxh3. Not a huge difference, easy win either way. This is another game where the puzzle would be even better (and of course more difficult) going back a couple of moves: 35. Qxf6! was a nice shot.
   Aug-05-19 J Aagaard vs Fuad Ahmed Mohamme Mufleh, 2006 (replies)
TheBish: This would make for a great POTD later in the week starting on move 25 or 26.
   Jul-25-19 L Dominguez vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2019
TheBish: Nice win, a miniature! Leinier's other win in this tournament is also interesting, but this has a really instructive finish. The final two rook moves are hammer blows! 24. Rh1! takes advantage of the weak back rank (Black gets mated after 24...Rxh1 25. Qg8+), and after 25. Rh5! ...
   Jul-20-19 Timman vs Cherniaev, 2008 (replies)
TheBish: <patzer2: In the opening, Black's game suffers after the awkward maneuver 8...Qb8?! 10. e4 (+0.81 @ 31 ply, Stockfish 10). Instead, our Opening Explorer indicates Black has had more success with 8...Qc8 ⩲ to = (+0.31 @ 33 ply, Stockfish 10) as in Black's win in F Perez ...
   Jun-28-19 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2019 (replies)
TheBish: <Sally Simpson: 13...Be6 centralisation with a trap. 14.Nxa4 Qe8! Hitting the a4 Knight and walking into a self-pin. Not your everyday move, easily missed and very crafty. (It's how I play, I talk myself into these things before I chicken out of them.) 15.Nc3 Bg4! (0-1) ...
   Jun-23-19 I Efimov vs H Mas, 2000 (replies)
TheBish: No Mas!
