   Dec-07-18 E Korchmar vs E Poliak, 1937 (replies)
drollere: poor me. i went for Bxg7.
   Dec-02-18 M Gurevich vs Leko, 2007 (replies)
drollere: i got the line 38. Kxb3 c2 39. Kb2 but missed the very gratifying 39. .. c1=Q+ with mate to follow.
   Dec-01-18 E Prie vs Granda Zuniga, 2017 (replies)
drollere: i went for 26. .. a4 27. b4 Rxb4 28. axb4 Nxb4 29. Qb1 e5 30. Bc4 Qxc5 27. bxa4 does not look at all helpful for white.
   Nov-29-18 B Jacobsen vs D Mallaghan, 2008 (replies)
drollere: if 28. Rxg7 then .. Nxg7 seems easier to defend. 28. Bh6 is forced mate if either piece captures, e.g. after 29. Qxh6 and 30. Nf6+, but 28. .. Re7 seems to hold. 28. .. Kxg7 looks like a blunder.
   Nov-28-18 L B Hansen vs G Vescovi, 1995
drollere: i had to puzzle this one for a while. i found 19. Rxh7+ Kxh7 20. Ng5+ Kh8 21. Qh3+ Kg7 22. Qh7+ Kf6 23. Qf7# point being that white must be able to throw continuous checks, and/or have the Q on the KR file, otherwise black's Bxh2+ will force the white K into mate on
   Nov-27-18 M Baldauf vs D Andreikin, 2016 (replies)
drollere: i got 33...Nh3+ 34. Kh1 Qxc1 35. Rxc1 Nf2+ 36. Kg1 Nxd3 winning the rook. i had fun trying the alternate permutations in this position ... a N fork around every corner.
   Nov-25-18 Aronian vs Leko, 2007 (replies)
drollere: this one was over my head. best i could find was 24. .. Nxa2 25. Nxa2 Rxb3 26. Bxe5 dxe5 for the R pawn and a bishop to guard the queening square. but the game line Rc2 is better than the blunder Rxb3, which gives the white B more options than the return sacrifice Bxe5.
   Nov-24-18 Browne vs B G Smith, 2007 (replies)
drollere: i could find only three moves: Bh3 was too wimpy and f3 was too dangerous, so i went for 22. Rxd5 Qxd5, 23. Bxe8 Rxe8 and a likely draw. did Browne really see 26. Bb7 nine moves ahead, netting a piece for two pawns and a grinding endgame? i think he was feeling frisky.
   Nov-23-18 Nimzowitsch vs G Marco, 1920 (replies)
drollere: i liked 12. Nd5 Qd6 13. e5. i looked at 13. Ba3 but thought c5 was a sufficient answer.
   Nov-22-18 Wang Hao vs R Gerber, 2016 (replies)
drollere: i had 21. Bxg6 fxg6 22. Qxg6 as the best way in.
