   Jul-05-18 Guanchu Liu vs Li Chao, 2011 (replies)
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...
   May-15-18 Ljubojevic vs Morozevich, 2003
dTal: Oh my word, and this is blindfold! What a gulf between these super GMs and the rest.
   Apr-30-18 R Vidruska vs O Badelka, 2017 (replies)
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 ...

dTal: Happy b'day Michael, and long may you play Chess. One of my favourite players.

dTal: Always missed, my favourite of all WCs. RIP maestro.
   Nov-03-17 A Birer vs C Duncan, 1990 (replies)
dTal: This looks like a blitz game that I would play last thing at night before going to bed, so tired I would be moving the pieces reflexively. How did this become a GOTD???
   Aug-24-17 Shabalov vs W So, 2016 (replies)
dTal: I didn't notice it was Black to play, and totally confused myself..
   Jul-17-17 Tal vs Dauga, 1959 (replies)
dTal: I was also wondering why Black didn't play <38...Bf4+ 39.Kh1 Qg3> which leads to a draw. Perhaps he had visions of winning?
