   Oct-21-18 A Volokitin vs P Nikolic, 2006 (replies)
 
goodevans: Whenever a Sunday puzzle seems a little too easy my suspicions ought to be raised but no, I made the same mistake as Volokitin (and <al wazir> and no doubt many others) of underestimating the effectiveness of black's defensive <36...Bf5>. If Nikolic had followed up ...
 
   Oct-13-18 Winants vs Carlsen, 2003 (replies)
 
goodevans: <Honey Blend: I think the puzzle should have started at move 23.> Yes, that would have been much, much better.
 
   Oct-09-18 G Danner vs A Milnes, 2008 (replies)
 
goodevans: I too went for <21.Nh5> which should be good enough for a win but there's a trap to be avoided. After <21...Ne8> white can't play <22.Rf1?> because of <22...Qxf1 23.Kxf1 Rh8> winning back the Q with advantage to black. White must instead play <22.g4 Qf3 ...
 
   Oct-05-18 43rd Chess Olympiad (2018) (replies)
 
goodevans: <Dionysius1: Blimey - England came 5th! ... I didn't know they were rated anything like that high. Well done them.> England overachieved slightly as did Poland who they tied with on points (but who beat them on TB). England has a handful of strong GMs so you'd expect them to
 
   Sep-30-18 Remlinger vs Shabalov, 1993 (replies)
 
goodevans: <..,nowadays 18.Qg4+,f5; 19.Qf3 enjoys a better reputation than 18.Qa4+>. Maybe, but white also has <18.Qa4+ b5 19.Qg4+ f5 20.Qf3> at his disposal. Almost the same but black no longer has the option of <...b6> to protect his c-pawn. It seems to me white was doing
 
   Sep-15-18 Kasparov vs Anand, 1995 (replies)
 
goodevans: <al wazir> 17.Bg7 Bf6 may win the exchange but White has invested two pawns for the attack. He's not about to give that up just to restore material equality.
 
   Sep-15-18 Smirin vs Pelletier, 2002 (replies)
 
goodevans: <Muztang: ... This problem appeared to be POTD on sunday 9th Dec 2012, for about 10 mins :P> So the puzzle is making its way back through the week one day at a time until we kibitzers tell it it's landed on the right day?
 
   Sep-05-18 A Winding vs S Sorensen, 1874 (replies)
 
goodevans: Is it too much to ask that those submitting GOTD puns, however hilarious, do a bit of quality control on the game itself?
 
   Aug-25-18 Blackburne vs W R Ballard, 1872 (replies)
 
goodevans: "Blindfold Bonzai" - It seems that whilst cg.com is in this unfortunate hiatus we must expect the GOTD puns to be determined by random word generation. No sense whatsoever. At least today we have a good game to enjoy.
 
   Jul-26-18 Marshall vs H Steiner, 1929 (replies)
 
goodevans: <21.g4> doesn't work because after <21...Nh4 22.Qh3 Rxe2 23.Rxe2 Nf4> the Ra8 guards against <24.Re8+>. So why move the Ra8? My guess is that black saw the game line, thought it was winning, tried to lure white into <22.g4> but missed either <27.Qxf3>
