drollere: file under "the clock, and how to clean it."

drollere: <Now that we all have access to analysis engines, there seems very little point in posting lines of analysis here. So why do we do it?> i'd guess many readers haven't bothered to acquire a chess engine, or having one can't be bothered to use it to solve a chess puzzle; and an

drollere: i like that black forges on, two N's against two R's, for 5 more moves after 38.
 
   Feb-21-17 R Krogius vs A Ojanen, 1944 (replies)
 
drollere: <belgradegambit: Not a Tuesday level problem.> Bxf7+ followed by a N check and a Q attack is a pretty standard family of trappy opening hazards for black in a traditional Kp opening. often the N check is at g5 but either way the KN moves to the 5th rank to open the white ...

drollere: <The game selected for today's Sunday puzzle (19. ?) is said to be the one Tate considers to be his finest win over a strong GM. It is indeed a superb tactical gem, reflective of Tate's extraordinary tactical skill and creativity.> i have to agree with some of the analysis ...

drollere: at white's 37, the point is Bxh6 loses the N to Rd8 and after Bf6 37. ... Kf7 forces the loss of either the B or the N.
 
   Feb-04-17 Spassky vs Averkin, 1973 (replies)
 
drollere: the point at move 32, where the black Q cannot defend the black QB on e8 due to the white N at c3, is especially nice.
 
   Jan-31-17 S Schweber vs Spassky, 1955 (replies)
 
drollere: i think the deeper point of "easy to solve" positions is that by the time we get to the position offered, there are often multiple paths to victory. even Qh1+ followed by Qxh2+ is hardly bad for black, just not as precise as the alternatives. the real puzzle isn't how you drop the ...

drollere: 36. ... h3 seals the deal.
