   Aug-09-13 Kramnik vs G Meier, 2012 (replies)
 
azax: I spent some time messing around on the queenside (maybe the knights are too loose? Or the Nc7 fork could be meaningful?) but that got nowhere. The only obvious kingside move is 24. Bxf7+, which, as a longtime King's gambit player, I've gotten used to checking for every move anyway ^_^
 
   Aug-08-13 H Pusch vs M Fuhrmann, 2001 (replies)
 
azax: This is one of the prettiest zugzwangs (with 20 moves of setup!) I can remember seeing. White does a very good job stopping Black from getting both his knights to look at d5.
 
   Aug-01-13 J Kozma vs L Alster, 1953 (replies)
 
azax: <BOSTER> I'm not sure you understood me. I was referring to the fact that black has several ways to try to wiggle out after 23. Qh6, but all of them end with mate anyway.
 
   Jul-19-13 M Seps vs E Moser, 2007 (replies)
 
azax: Whew! Thursday is a modified Legal and Friday is a simple(ish) endgame, my strongest area in chess. If it keeps going like this I just might get a perfect week.
 
   Jul-18-13 Alekhine vs O Tenner, 1911 (replies)
 
azax: Made much easier by recognizing the Legal-esque pattern, as <Phony Benoni> points out.
 
   Jul-10-13 A Lukin vs T Khasanov, 1983 (replies)
 
azax: Fortunately for me my tactical instinct pretty much zeroed in on Bxh7+ right at the start, and the rest of the sequence is a bit telegraphed. 30. Bxh7+ Kxh7 31. Rxf7+ Kg8 (...Rxf7 32. Qxf7#) (...Kg7 32. Rg7#) 32. Rg7++ Kh8 33. Rg8++ Kh7 34. Rh8+ Kg6 (...Rxh8 35. Qf7#) 35. Rh6#
 
   Mar-19-13 N Grandelius vs A Pourramezanali, 2010 (replies)
 
azax: Man, another two-rook mate? This could be a theme.
 
   Dec-26-12 T Gelashvili vs N Mihakis, 1998 (replies)
 
azax: This little mating motif jumped out at me pretty quickly - I think it's a byproduct of too much bughouse. Nice Wednesday puzzle.
 
   Aug-26-11 D Pruess vs W Shipman, 1998 (replies)
 
azax: I got really excited when I saw the Knight sac on move 5 in the corner, and then less excited when I saw it was "just" a KG.
 
   Aug-26-11 Marciniak vs H Dobosz, 1973 (replies)
 
azax: This is almost entirely forced for Black, so i didn't find it too hard. The only (non-attacking) way to save both the Bishop and the King is to retreat to f8, and that doesn't sound like a combination. Picking up on the weak back rank and only starting check (...Nf2+) gives the ...
