   Sep-19-18 Lubensky vs Geller, 1949 (replies)
dTal: For me the point of this puzzle is getting the right order of moves. The straightforward check Qh2 doesn't seem to lead to anything forcing, while Be3+ Rxe3 Nxe3 is not forcing enough and leaves White enough time to mess about with his Q. So the key is first the B check, and then the ...
   Sep-10-18 R Safar vs I Agrest, 2008 (replies)
dTal: Honestly, my solution was 26. ... Qg2+ 27. Kg2 Bh3+ 28. kh2 / kh3 Bf1 ++ Mate in 3. Then I saw that 26. ... Rg3+ is mate in two. Duh, I need more sleep.

dTal: I am impressed by how well the new site mangers have figured out the daily puzzle difficulty. Seemed spot on yesterday and today. Tbh, sadly I didn't see today's solution. RIP to Vesna, as others have said.
   Aug-08-18 Taimanov vs Psakhis, 1981
dTal: I am so sorry to hear that the webmaster passed away. For years I have visited CG regularly, spending a few mts to look at the daily puzzle and gotd. always marvelling at the quality and integrity of the site. I did not and do not know the staff, and would like to offer my most sincere

dTal: Oh my word, and this is blindfold! What a gulf between these super GMs and the rest.

dTal: Ah, my Monday pick-me-up, solved it in an instant.
   Apr-12-18 Potkin vs D Brandenburg, 2008 (replies)
dTal: I'm sorry what?? Surely Black could play on?
   Apr-11-18 W So vs M Mahjoob, 2007 (replies)
dTal: This was hard! I thought 20. Ngf7 wins on the spot but after 20. ... Qe7, there doesn't seem to be anything clear. Instead, Wesley's brilliant 20. Rf5 wins the house. Bet he say that many moves earlier. This position illustrated to me so clearly why I will never be good at this game ...
