   Dec-14-17 Murey vs T Bottema, 1987 (replies)
gofer: Well, I got <32 Rb8 ...> 32 ... Qxb4 33 Rxc8+ Kf7 34 Rb8 +- <32 ... Rxc7> and then went differently... <33 Qxd6 Rxc1+> <34 Bf1 ...> So, is this better or worse than the game continuation. It looks better for white from my perspective... [DIAGRAM]
   Dec-13-17 Gulko vs Adams, 2000 (replies)
gofer: Okay, <Wednesday> easier than <Tuesday> and <Tuesday> easier than <Monday>. I think I am going to like <Sunday> this week! <37 ... Ne3+> <38 fxe3 Rb2+> 39 Kh1 Qxf3+ 40 Kg1 Qg2# 39 Kf1 Qxf3+ 40 Ke1 Qf2+ (Kg1 Qg2#) 41 Kd1 Qd2# 39 Kg1 ...
   Dec-12-17 R J Dive vs P W Stuart, 1987 (replies)
gofer: So the start is simple... <29 Rd7+ Qxd7> <30 Rh7+ ...> 30 ... Rf7 31 Rxf7 Kxf7 32 Qd7+ ... 32 ... Kg6/Kf6 33 Qc6+ +- 32 ... Kg8 33 Qd5 +- 32 ... Kf8 33 Nf5 Bxc4 34 Qe7+ Kg8 35 Nh6+ Kh8 36 Bb2 mating [DIAGRAM] <30 ... Kf8> <31 Qxd7 ...
   Dec-11-17 Judit Polgar vs P Kerkhof, 1987 (replies)
gofer: Somehow I feel this is rather unusual for a <Monday> POTD! <30 Bxe5+ Kh6> <31 Be6 ...> White has won a pawn and avoided any issues with Bxh3 and as <FSR> says; the attack is <overwhelming>... ...but two moves, neither of which has a single forced ...
   Dec-10-17 E Vladimirov vs G Agzamov, 1977 (replies)
gofer: This one took a while, but during the meander I realised that black cannot simply ignore <29 Ne6> and that is most of its beauty! <29 Ne6 ...> 29 ... Nb4 (or any other non-interactive move) 30 Bg6+ fxg6 (Kh8 31 Rxh6+ gxh6 32 Qxh6#) 31 Ng5+ Kh8 (hxg5 Bxf7#) 31 Nf7+!
   Dec-08-17 Ding Liren vs E Inarkiev, 2015 (replies)
gofer: <Amarande: 30 Ne6 Nxe6 31 Bxe6 ...> The refutation you are looking for is probably... <31 ... Qg6> [DIAGRAM]
   Dec-07-17 Hort vs P G Heilemann, 1987 (replies)
gofer: Well, in truth I missed this one. I wanted to play <32 Nxf6>, so in that respect I was correct, but I missed best black's defence. I saw the queen check followed by Kh1, which didn't seem to achieve much. I didn't think there was a decent defence! But, in hindsight, it was all
   Dec-06-17 V Sherbakov vs Furman, 1955 (replies)
gofer: I looked at Be8 when I saw the queen trap, but then realised that if the queen trap was playable, then Qxe4 made it doubly so, because the queen trap is still on if white plays Bxe4 and if white plays Qxe4 then we simply re-take with the knight. <32 ... Qxe4!> <33 Bxe4 ...
   Dec-04-17 I Polovodin vs Glek, 1987 (replies)
gofer: Interesting those people "miscounting the squares" in this humble <Monday> POTD. So, how often do we get people failing on a <Monday>? Not very often. Nice one <CG>!!! The rook sac is a contender as we have an outside passed pawn, but the really nice thing is that ...
   Dec-03-17 Najdorf vs Mecking, 1978
gofer: I had three candidates; c5, e3+ and exf3. But two of them disappeared quickly. 31 ... c5 32 fxe4+ Kxe4 33 bxc5 Kd5 34 h5 Kxc5 35 h6! Kd5 36 g5 Ke5 36 g6 +- [DIAGRAM] The promotion is certain and the position is very famous! 31 ... e3+ 32 Ke2 Kc4 33 h5 [DIAGRAM] ...
