   Jun-19-18 J Salomon vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017 (replies)
gawain: Like several other solvers I was fixated on the lure of a back rank mate. Could not see the winning move.
   Jun-18-18 V Laznicka vs Movsesian, 2007 (replies)
gawain: A beautifully efficient finish. The piece that delivers mate also protects the knight that covers g7.
   Jun-12-18 M Efroimski vs T Munkhchuluun, 2008 (replies)
gawain: I figure the puzzle is solved after 43 ...Rxb1. Two extra pawns ought to be enough. Nice skewer.
   Jun-06-18 B Adhiban vs D Andreikin, 2017 (replies)
gawain: Instructive puzzle. I saw the tactic that allows White to queen his pawn--but I did not look into Black's counterplay.
   Jun-05-18 D Perez vs J Jackova, 2008 (replies)
gawain: Good pun, <King Harvest> !
   Jun-04-18 N Lopes vs U O'Boyle, 2008 (replies)
gawain: I like puzzles where the king is mated out in the open, but I also like puzzles like this one where the king is surrounded by his own pieces which prove useless for defense.
   May-30-18 A Heimann vs B Stillger, 2017 (replies)
gawain: Nifty combination. I was looking for knight forks but gave up too soon. My mistake: expecting a Wednesday puzzle to give up its secret as quickly as a Tuesday.
   May-29-18 W Jacobusse vs S Potter, 2008 (replies)
gawain: Another one with the heavy artillery pointed at the Black king. But this time the doubled major pieces are not relevant! The rook on g1 is a mere bystander.
   May-28-18 M Elgohary vs K Elfelo, 2008 (replies)
gawain: The heavy artillery are lined up. Blast away!
   May-26-18 J Jackson vs G Jones, 2016 (replies)
gawain: Lovely king hunt by the real Gawain. Way to go!
