   Aug-12-16 J M Burke vs S Arun Prasad, 2015 (replies)
alshatranji: I had 34. Qg7+, which wins too. 44...Kd8, 45.Ra8+ Qc8, 46.Rxc8+ Kc8, 47.Kxh7 e2, 48.Bxe2 Rxe2, should be an easy win.
   Aug-09-16 M Prusikin vs Korchnoi, 2005 (replies)
alshatranji: More surprising than Korchnoi losing to this simple tactic is that he continued to play so long after losing his queen.
   Jul-28-16 F A Foulds vs Lang, 1956 (replies)
alshatranji: So after 18. Qc5, Black simply capture the bishop with the knight. An unfortunate oversight.
   Jun-26-16 D Janaszak vs A Siwiec, 2009 (replies)
alshatranji: Very nice puzzle abg2002. I suppose it is flawed because Black's moves are not forced? That is, Black has to try to get a stalemate (the only chance), or else White would promote to Queen and win easily?
   May-22-16 T L Petrosian vs A Minasian, 2006 (replies)
alshatranji: How about 26.g5 (?) The actual one i more brilliant of course. But g5 seems quite strong.
   May-06-16 Spielmann vs M Elyashiv, 1903 (replies)
alshatranji: I don't want to be a killjoy here. But I've never liked the King's Gambit. Subtlety is not one of its strengths. It's like neanderthal charging with his bludgeon.
   May-02-16 P W Power vs R Hart, 1983 (replies)
alshatranji: Brilliant punning leRevenant. I would just add "wreck it Ralph" at the end.
   Apr-08-16 J Penrose vs Blau, 1957 (replies)
alshatranji: alshatranji: Fascinating problem. I think it was yesterday that someone said something about chess being like music. You know the keys and notes, etc, but you need to play them in the right combination and tempo (or something like that). Today's puzzle is a perfect example. I ...
   Jul-25-15 Karpov vs Van der Wiel, 1980 (replies)
alshatranji: Thank you patzer2 for the analysis. I wouldn’t want to argue with Deep Fritz, but after 28. Qf3 Qxf1+ 29. Qxf1 fxe6, the move 30. g6 is worth considering: 30 … Bh6+, 31. Nd2 Kxe7, 32. Qf7+ Kd8, 33. g7
   Mar-18-15 Kavalek vs Suttles, 1974 (replies)
alshatranji: <Suttles, according to the tournament book, loved showing this game to people--after Qd2, White has the exact pawn center and piece formation recommended by Al Horowitz as ideal> Very interesting. The position after Qd2 reminded me of the first chess book I ever had, which
