   Feb-03-17 Timman vs Spassky, 1983 (replies)
 
dTal: This is the easiest Friday puzzle I can remember in a long while. Think the whole sequence plays itself after the not-too-difficult-to-find 24. ... Nb4. Let me kid myself for a while that I am improving...

dTal: Got it, but took longer than I would have liked..
 
   Jan-10-17 Fischer vs W A Nyman, 1964 (replies)
 
dTal: Wish it were true that hard work allows you to master a field, but I think competence rather than mastery is a safer bet in that statement by 1971. These folks have mental gifts that ordinary folks just don't have, be it in memory, spatial visualisation or pattern recognition. One of ...
 
   Jan-06-17 Eljanov vs Karjakin, 2015 (replies)
 
dTal: Beautiful and instructive combination starting with 29. d4! which I failed to remotely spot. I was completely on the wrong path, trying N sacs on f7 .. :-( The win is instead based on exploiting the pin of the black N to the Q. Taking the pawn with either R or P seems to lead to a ...
 
   Nov-24-16 Karjakin vs Carlsen, 2016 (replies)
 
dTal: What a tactical minefield this game was! Amazing play by both players. Try going through this without any engine or analysis, the mind boggles!
 
   Aug-26-16 Miles vs Ljubojevic, 1978 (replies)
 
dTal: Ah, the late great Tony Miles. RIP Grand Master, we miss you.
 
   May-19-16 Capablanca vs M Fonaroff, 1918 (replies)
 
dTal: I got it including not playing 21 nf7+ but 21 Qe5. But its Capa's play leading up to this that is a dream. Wish I could understand and play Chess to even a fraction of this level.
 
   May-04-16 Pillsbury vs C F Bliss, 1898 (replies)
 
dTal: Wow, these are difficult tactics, at least for me. 32. Bf8 is hard to see.. The line by <devere> above is also very nice, and equally difficult to see..
 
   Dec-17-15 Jobava vs I Saric, 2015 (replies)
 
dTal: What a genius game! Great positional understanding. 15 d6! is a beautiful move!
 
   Aug-21-15 A Lagunow vs B Schneider, 1994 (replies)
 
dTal: The first move is obvious, but the sequence of pawn moves is a bit tricky. I thought of d6 instead of e5 first, but actually that gives time for Black to get his B to c6 and muddy the waters a little bit, eg: 19. d6 ed 20. e5 Bc6 21. ed Qd7 May still work after Qa3 but messier. 21. Qa3
