   Oct-08-18 A Karayev vs A J Datu, 2008 (replies)
gawain: A deadly knight fork is in the offing. Black can do nothing about it. Now I have to analyze to see why Black played on for so long.
   Oct-02-18 Seirawan vs E Lobron, 1983 (replies)
gawain: It looks like 22...Qxf2+ is going to do the trick.
   Oct-01-18 Chandler vs Y Gruenfeld, 1979
gawain: 28 ...Bg1 is a remarkable move, one of the most stunning I have ever seen.
   Sep-24-18 Radjabov vs Morozevich, 2008 (replies)
gawain: I first tried 64 Qa6+ bxa6 65 Rc6, but that did not quite work. Almost but not quite. So I switched the moves. Nice little Monday puzzle.
   Sep-19-18 Lubensky vs Geller, 1949 (replies)
gawain: Expecting a fairly easy puzzle I tuned in and found this beast instead! Thanks, everyone, for the many interesting comments.
   Sep-18-18 Kotronias vs D King, 1990 (replies)
gawain: It's a good puzzle to recycle. Very pretty.
   Sep-17-18 Unzicker vs Tal, 1975 (replies)
gawain: I enjoy a game like this one that provides more than one puzzle (of more than one degree of difficulty), depending where you slice into it.
   Sep-10-18 R Safar vs I Agrest, 2008 (replies)
gawain: I like the less quick but prettier mate starting with 26...Qxg2+.
   Sep-04-18 S Paridar vs D Yanjindulam, 2008
gawain: Easy enough to see the tactic--but I did briefly keep looking for something with a greater reward than the win of a piece.
   Sep-04-18 C Ratsimikatry vs N Faulks, 2008 (replies)
gawain: I saw ...Nc2+ after only a few false starts.
