   Jun-21-18 Y Chan vs E Galvez Dastin, 2008 (replies)
gofer: Well the first two moves are obvious, but as <agb2002> points out even after the game continuation there is some wriggle-room for black. I went with the following... <24 Bxc6 bxc6> <25 Rxc6+ Kd8> <26 Qc7+ Ke8> <27 Rxb6 ...> [DIAGRAM] This ...

gofer: <39 Rxd5 ...> Black cannot refuse as Rc5 would be next! <39 ... exd5> <40 e6 ...> The rook has nowhere to run... 40 ... Rf8? 41 Bxc6+ Qxc6 42 Qxf8 Qxe6 43 Qxg7+ +- 40 ... Re7? 41 Bxc6+ Qxc6 42 Qxe7+ +- 40 ... Rd7? 41 exd7 +- 40 ... Rc7? 41 ...
   May-25-18 M Antipov vs S V Ivanov, 2017 (replies)
gofer: Tweezy. <31 Qxf8+ Kxf8> <32 Ng5+ ...> 32 ... Bxf1+ 32 Nxe6+ Ke7 33 Kxf1 Kxe6 34 c6 +- Black has lost. 32 ... Qf5 33 Rxf5+ gxf5 34 Nxh7+ Ke7 35 Ng5 +- Black is 3 pawns down and has no pawns that the LSB can attack, so Kg1 will simply march into the centre ...
   May-24-18 Z Hernandez vs B Dekic, 2008 (replies)
gofer: Knights are lousy at defending these sorts of positions and Rf6 is almost completely out of the game, so we just need to work on Be7. But during that I see the "classic" rook sacrifice winning R+N without loss of tempo! Our king looks a little defenceless, but we can probably track ...
   May-23-18 I Bulmaga vs J Rojas Solano, 2008 (replies)
gofer: Doh! I missed an escape square for the king... 31 Be4+ dxe4 32 Qxe4+ Kxh6 33 Rxh7+ Kg5 34 Qf4+ Kg6 35 Rh6+ Kf7! At which point white immediately converts into a winning end game, but it's not at good as I thought! Only +4.98...
   May-17-18 C Hoogendijk vs A A Marguerite, 2008 (replies)
gofer: Well, the rook sac is obvious, but not the follow up... <21 ... Rxf2> 22 Ke1 Bg3 +- I think this the best continuation. It sets up a horrible pin that white is going to find very difficult to break. One continuation is... 23 Re8+ Rxe8 24 Bxe8 Nf6! Rather than wasting the ...
   May-11-18 B Hayden vs W A Winser, 1948 (replies)
gofer: <Eduardo Leon>: <However, 25.♗xe5 ♕xe5 26.fxe5 ♗xh6 27.♘xh6+ ♔g7 28.exf6+ ♔xh6 29.♘xf7+ wins an exchange, and, with it, the game.> 29 Nxf7+ is much much more than just <winning an exchange>. It is mate in two more, which ...
   May-09-18 C Bleis vs K Haznedaroglu, 2005 (replies)
gofer: Yesterday's I miss. Today's takes 3 or 4 seconds. 2/3 for the week...
   May-07-18 S Maroroa vs J Wilson, 2008 (replies)
gofer: Like many, I was lost. It is a <Monday>, albeit a PH in the UK, but still a <Monday>. So we are looking for 1, 2 or perhaps 3-move-combo that seals the deal... ...but try as I might I couldn't find one. So I went for the 6-move-combo that wins an exchange and 2 pawns. ...
   May-05-18 P V Nandhidhaa vs P Karthikeyan, 2016 (replies)
gofer: [DIAGRAM] I am pretty happy with mate in 14... 1) mated-in-14 (22 ply) 1...Qd7 2.Qf6 Qe6 3.Rxe6 fxe6 4.Qxe6+ Kg7 5.Be4 Rf6 6.Qe7+ Rf7 7.Qxd8 Rd7 8.Qxb6 Kf7 9.Qxc5 Kg7 10.Qe5+ Kf8 11.Bd5 Rxd6 12.Qxd6+ Kg7 13.Qe7+ Kh8 14.Qf8+ Kh7 15.Qg8# 2) mated-in-13 (22 ply) 1...Qe6 2.Rxe6 fxe6 ...
