   Nov-16-18 Aronian vs Karjakin, 2014 (replies)
alshatranji: No offense to anyone, but this pun is rather lame. It just repeats the name, and where is the "car"jacking? It's not like Aronian wwon with a counterattack or something? He was better the whole game.
   Aug-18-18 I Radulov vs Quinteros, 1973
alshatranji: Yes, I saw bxf5.
   Aug-15-18 Rozentalis vs Y Dokhoian, 1986 (replies)
alshatranji: I know the choice of puzzles is supposed to be random now, but it seems that a common theme these days is long-term sacrifices, rather than combinations. It could be in the eye of the beholder, though. Anyway, I considered Bf4, but I just didn't see a decisive attack after Qe6. ...
   Aug-11-18 Alekhine vs Colle, 1925 (replies)
alshatranji: "njdanie: According to a couple old Fred Reinfeld books and possibly even a Reuben Fine book, the game actually proceeded with: 31 Rc8+??? Rd8 white resigns. Possibly Alekhine published a "revisionist" version of the game in his book..." This can't be true. Alekhine won the ...
   Aug-10-18 Lindemann vs Echtermeyer, 1893
alshatranji: The brilliant analysis by ToTheDeath ha made me reconsider this game. It brought the hidden depths of this little gem.
   Aug-03-18 P Mutesi vs Amen Miladi, 2016
alshatranji: White missed 26.Bxg6.
   Aug-03-18 Phiona Mutesi (replies)
alshatranji: The fact that the claim that Obama is a (former) Muslim is seen as damning by his opponents and a slur by his defenders tells as something (not very pleasant) about tolerance in America.
   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.
