   Feb-17-18 J van Foreest vs A Liang, 2017 (replies)
goodevans: Once you eliminate <10.Bxc4 Bxa3>, finding <10.Nxc4 dxc4 11.d5> isn't terribly difficult. I suppose what might just push this puzzle into weekend caliber is that there's no quick win of material. You have to see as far as move 15 in the game line before black's ...
   Feb-16-18 D Yuffa vs Bologan, 2015 (replies)
goodevans: <malt>, <Saturn2>, I'm afraid <30...Be8 31.Qxe8> doesn't win a piece because of <31...Rxe8 32.fxe5 hxg5>. White is still winning but not as convincingly as <30...Be8 31.Qxh6+>.
   Feb-05-18 C Eagle vs Bisguier, 1992 (replies)
goodevans: I think it's no coincidence this is chosen as GOTD the day after the Eagles' NFL victory. Carson Wentz may well be my favourite QB but I think it's great the Eagles can confound their doubters and continue to win without him.
   Feb-04-18 Kaidanov vs D Gurevich, 1997 (replies)
goodevans: <ChessHigherCat> I think you're right. The main difference seems to be that delaying the B-sac until after black has "saved" his R cuts down black's options. The early sac gives black the choice to abandon his R and instead pick up a second white minor with 15.Be4 fxe4 ...
   Jan-30-18 Robert E Byrne vs Browne, 1975 (replies)
goodevans: Stockfish doesn't like <17.Qd4>. It prefers <17.Rf1 g5 18.Bc1 Rxh2 19.Qd3 f5 20.Bf3 Rh3 21.Be3 Qb5 22.Qd4 Qc5 23.O-O-O> which it reckons is slightly better for white. Looking at those two passed K-side pawns I think you'd have to be brave to play that line. I'd have ...
   Jan-28-18 Karpov vs Topalov, 1994 (replies)
goodevans: After <23...Qd6 24.Qxc8 Rc7 25.Qg4> there's still enough heavy artillery on the board for the precariousness of black's K to continue to be a major factor. So, for instance, <newzild>'s <25...Qxc6> may temporarily avoid the loss of another pawn but white has at ...
   Jan-24-18 Fine vs Lasker, 1936 (replies)
goodevans: <Check It Out>, <offramp> I think <Every Good Boy Does Fine> is a less popular variant of the mnemonic <Every Good Boy Deserves Favours>. The existence of would seem to back up that belief. I also think the latter ...
   Jan-22-18 S Bargan vs S Bargan, 2012 (replies)
goodevans: <wtpy> It seems that move 17 was indeed the turning point. White was fine until then. I'd have played <17.Nc3>. This wins the black Q as black simply can't allow <18.Nxd5 exd5 19.Qxd5> which would be devastating. Stockfish prefers <17.Qg4> as even stronger.
   Jan-19-18 Sax vs Minic, 1975 (replies)
goodevans: <gofer: I was trying to decide between Ng5 and Nd4...> I went through the same thought process. I started of looking at <20.Ng5> but after <20...Nxg5 21.e6> I started worrying that <21...Qc5+> gives check. I turned to <20.Nd4> since now <20...Nxd4 ...
   Jan-17-18 Naiditsch vs Kramnik, 2010 (replies)
goodevans: <Dr. Funkenstein: Chessbase confirms Yalie's idea above. 29. ...Qb3+? loses while 29. ...Qf5+! leads to a draw. 29. ...Qf5+ 30. Kc1 c3!! (allowing the rook access to the fourth rank) 31. Bxc3...> I'm somewhat perplexed why Chessbase and others should focus on <31.Bxc3>
