gambler: for example: 15. Nxc5 Qh4 16. h3 d6 and black should be winning back the piece with a better position
 
   Feb-17-13 Huebner vs T Luther, 2002 (replies)
 
gambler: The position seem sabsolutely winning for black. My first idea was Re8 setting up a mating net. Black can also defend agaisnt counter-attacks, so in theory we have the time. However, there might be something quicker and more accurate, time to calculate... lets see.
 
   Feb-13-13 W Schmidt vs Jansa, 1983 (replies)
 
gambler: First one should evaluate the position: Huge positional advantage for white. The pawn on d6 paralyzes black's defence. So I guess many good moves here. Strategically, Playing on the open e file is not a good idea since this would solve many of blacks problems regarding the ...

gambler: @SBB: To me, 29. ...Bxf3 30. Rxf3 Rd1+ 31. Kf2 was the critical line. The others are fairly quickly calculated... So I dug deep here. To be honest I could not see a clear win, but my gut fealing told me, that after 31. ...Qh4+ 32. Rg3 Qxh2 Black should have enough compensation for

gambler: Sir Ruthless: I am an amateur player and calculate 4-5 moves ahead in most occasions. I think 5-10 is standard for a GM, maybe even more. Remember, Capablanca said in endgames he calculates 25 moves ahead.

gambler: You got it!
 
   Dec-23-12 Kasparov vs Karpov, 1987 (replies)
 
gambler: actually Ne1 is a quit interesting move. Ng5 often runs into trouble: After Bx3 and recapture, black can either play against the doubled pawns, or can even play a pawn sacrifice (e3) leaving white with doubled isolated pawns and a temporarily bad placed bishop/knight. So Ne1 is ...

gambler: Pretty much any move in this position wins.

gambler: This is not so much a tactical puzzle but some sort of end-game technique trainer. Once you got the zugzwang pattern down, it is actually pretty simple.
 
   Aug-17-12 Karjakin vs E Alekseev, 2007 (replies)
 
gambler: Wow, that was surprisingly easy... Qf6 threatens mate in one and there is only the ...Qxe5 defense. I even think it is not important to play the Knight first. While this is a superior move, playing Qf6 should straight out win a rook.
