dTal: Omigawd. Chess blindness at its best. Can you believe I did not see 34. Qg8. :-(
   Jan-10-19 Bologan vs M Hansen, 2011 (replies)
dTal: I actually think this is a decent Thursday puzzle, because of 34 ... b5 that Nalin first mentioned. I think White has to settle for 35. Rc5 bc4 36 Rc4 with a passer and extra pawn. Or does he have anything better?
   Jan-03-19 M L Condie vs Speelman, 1984 (replies)
dTal: I solved this puzzle and I am really impressed by how B transforms his position after 24. Rg3. Optically W has a rook on the open file, what seem like more active pieces and threats to infiltrate on the 7th rank. Contrast this with the final position, B is up an xchg, his rooks are ...

dTal: What an amazing attack. Beautiful. Didn't even come close.
   Nov-27-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
dTal: <frogbert: <dTal: If Fabiano wins it won't be because of any self-sabotage by Magnus. It will be because he's stronger than Magnus.> Somebody will eventually win this match. Currently I don't think any of the two is stronger than the other - at least not in classical chess. ...

dTal: lol @OhioChessFan :-)
   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.
   Oct-23-18 Anderssen vs G Neumann, 1866 (replies)
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.
