   Dec-03-18 Wei Ming Kevin Goh vs S M Andersen, 2017 (replies)
TheBish: Ahoy, matey!
   Nov-30-18 Robert Beltz vs Vasiukov, 2017
TheBish: This was the easiest Friday puzzle in recent memory.
   Nov-28-18 Carlsen vs Caruana, 2018 (replies)
TheBish: "Meet the new boss... same as the old boss"
   Sep-09-18 J M Hanham vs Chigorin, 1889 (replies)
TheBish: I fail to see how this game is worthy of "game of the day", or why Steinitz would have wasted his time annotating it. I suppose it was an interesting game until the blunder (although many would argue this point), so slightly more worthy of annotating than GOTD honors.
   Jul-04-18 D Morozov vs I Makoveev, 2014
TheBish: D Morozov vs I Makoveev, 2014 Black to play (34...?) "Medium/Easy" I'm not sure if I've seen this one before, but if so, I didn't remember it. It didn't take long to find the solution, looking for the most direct, brute-force approach: 34...Qh4+!! This stunner begins a direct ...
   May-23-18 A Hoffmann vs Fischer, 1963
TheBish: Interestingly, the analysis board recommends 14...b5!? after first looking at 14...Nd8 (protecting f7) which seems too passive. The line runs 14...b5 15. Bxb5 Rb8 16. Qa4 a6 17. Bd3 Qe6.
   Apr-25-18 Z Izoria vs S Shankland, 2018
TheBish: 35. Qe2 Qh4 36. f3 Qg3+ 37. Qg2 Qxf3 38. Qxf3 Bxf3 39. Re1 Be4 40. Rxe4 Rxb1+ 41. Kf2 Rc1 and Black is 2 pawns up, fairly routine endgame.
   Apr-06-18 Steinitz vs Chigorin, 1892 (replies)
TheBish: <morfishine: ... The problem with that idea is that Morphy never lost a game> Obviously you are being hyperbolic. A quick search shows Morphy losing 25 games (77 if you count exhibition, odds, rapid, consultation, etc. games), and drawing 17, with an overall record of 85.3%.
   Mar-30-18 Kotov vs Bondarevsky, 1936 (replies)
TheBish: I'm surprised Kotov walked into mate with 23. Ke3??, as it looks even after 23. Kf1.
   Mar-29-18 Schlechter vs J Perlis, 1911 (replies)
TheBish: Schlechter vs J Perlis, 1911 White to play (9.?) "Medium" Black clearly must have blundered if he is losing at move 9! Black is temporarily up a piece for two pawns, but with a wild pawn at c6, anything is possible! My eyes were first drawn to that pawn as well as its counterpart ...
