   Dec-11-18 Hoang Thong Tu vs J Gonzalez Garcia, 2008 (replies)
gawain: I found the right line but wondered whether it was decisive enough. I guess so.
   Dec-10-18 Tal vs A S Segal, 1952 (replies)
gawain: Nice little combination to fork the K and Q. Quite suitable for a Monday.
   Dec-04-18 Balashov vs Jansa, 2017 (replies)
gawain: When he moved 38 Qg5 what could Balashov have been thinking? Perhaps hoping for draw by perpetual check? He apparently did not understand the danger he was in. Or maybe he was in time trouble.
   Dec-03-18 R Martyn vs Wei Ming Kevin Goh, 2008 (replies)
gawain: A stunning combination! White is helpless. Very nice.
   Nov-27-18 M Baldauf vs D Andreikin, 2016 (replies)
gawain: A pretty combination. The protection around the white king is illusory.
   Nov-20-18 G Vaicekauskas vs K Juhasz, 2008
gawain: The Black queen must be deflected so that White can invade at f7. A nice finish. Or as I hoped to say, a nice Finnish--except that Mr. Vaicekauskas is Lithuanian.
   Nov-19-18 Naiditsch vs C Jeitz, 2016
gawain: What an interesting finish. A nice back rank mate--turned on its side.
   Nov-15-18 I Sokolov vs J Smeets, 2008 (replies)
gawain: I saw the initial moves but could not work out how to conclude the attack. Typical of my results on Thursdays.
   Nov-14-18 D Perrett vs I Efimov, 2008 (replies)
gawain: Two Black pieces camped in the middle of White's position--and then they are joined by a third! White is helpless.
   Nov-13-18 K O'Brien vs D Salter, 2008 (replies)
gawain: I didn't see how conclusive the queen sac on h2 was. White has no time to create an escape hatch on f2.
