   Nov-08-18 Krasenkow vs Karpov, 2003 (replies)
dTal: I agree. I also didn't see Re1. I thought Qb2 won it, but as pointed out, there is a defence. I think the key move of Re1 is hard to spot, at least for me, at the beginning of the combination.

dTal: What about 34. Qc7+ Qxc7 35. bxc7 Kxc7 36. Kxe2 Doesn't that give White a chance?
   Oct-16-18 A Escobar Forero vs F La Rota, 2008 (replies)
dTal: I really struggled with this :-(
   Oct-11-18 G Horvath vs Plachetka, 1994 (replies)
dTal: Odradek, in your line after 38. Kf1 Black has 38. ... fx36 which is winning. You move 34. ... Rb2 is the key move in the 34. Kg1 line which I hadn't spotted, without which B is lost I think.

dTal: Really easy today, but I'm not complaining!

   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: Found this almost instantly, and I wish I could say it was my tactical vision improving, but I fear its more to do with the puzzle being more Monday level than Thursday level...
