   Feb-15-18 Tolnai vs Z Gyimesi, 1993 (replies)
 
drollere: <Easy but many variations: (A) 36.KxR Rh1+ 37.Kg3 Qd3+ (A1) Kf2 Rf1# (A2) Kg4 Qh3#> 38. Qh3+; 39. pxh3. better is 38. f5
 
   Dec-13-17 Gulko vs Adams, 2000 (replies)
 
drollere: <For the record, it might go: 39. Kh3 Qxf3 (threatening ...Qxh5#), 40. Qc8+ Kh7, 41. Qd8 (to block at h4?)> ... f6
 
   Dec-12-17 Judit Polgar vs P Kerkhof, 1987
 
drollere: 30. .. Kh6, although still dire, implies that 30. .. dxe5 was a blunder. but you had to find 31. Be6. then if 31. Be6 Bxe6 or 31. .. dxe5 it's mate in 4.
 
   Nov-17-17 P Van der Sterren vs Ljubojevic, 1987 (replies)
 
drollere: 33...Nxf6, 34. exf6+ Kxf6, 35. Qxd8+ Kg7, 36. Kxg2
 
   Nov-12-17 Harikrishna vs Li Chao, 2016
 
drollere: as others have said, f4 was easy to spot (even for me), but the rest is hard to foresee because so much of it depends on black's answers. why not 28. ... Nxe6 instead of 28. ... Qxe6, for example? or even 27. .. Nxe6? recapturing with the QB attacks both c4 and h3 while defending ...
 
   Nov-11-17 A Chandra vs W So, 2016 (replies)
 
drollere: <The links between perception and expertise have been demonstrated many times.> This was a little demonstration of memory in cognitive psychology around the 1980’s. The idea then was that memory is constructive, and better players “chunk” the position into memorable units. I ...

drollere: Rxb6 and p(a)xb6 was my thought too -- connects the Qside white pawns and eliminates the weak R pawn, which makes the passed pair almost unstoppable.
 
   Oct-17-17 Zsofia Polgar vs S Kamberi, 1996 (replies)
 
drollere: <38. Rh7+ Kf8 39. Rxe7 Kxe7 40. Bxg8 with decisive material plus for white> 38.Rh7+ Kf8 39.Rxe7 Nxe7 40.Bxg8 Nxg8 and white is only up a piece with opposite color bishops. might be worth a tussle.
 
   Oct-16-17 G Lasya vs I Barchuk, 2016 (replies)
 
drollere: as Lambda implied, three different moves will lead to mate: Qe8+ (Nf8; Bxg7+, Kxg7; Qxf8#, my mayhem choice), Bxg7+ or Qxg7+. if that's not a record for the number of different moves that will solve a puzzle, i'd like to see the puzzle that permits four forced solutions.

drollere: black ends up cursing that pawn at e5!
