   Mar-15-12 J Nogueiras vs R Vera, 1982
 
joshuap: It's funny how white thought he had a great move against black's 16. ...Nxg3, but actually made a HORRIBLE move, because black's tactic actually works. 17. ...Qxc1 was easy to see, but probably left white stunned because he thought his tactic would win a piece, but actually lost the

joshuap: I have to say that 30. ...b3! is quite brilliant! Even after 31. ...Rc3+, white cannot play 32.Kb1? because 32. ...Bd3+! 33.Ka1 Rc1# Black's other chance after 30. ...b3 is 31.axb3, but now black's queening tactic will require only a rook in exchange. 31. ...Re1+ 32.Kd2 a2 33.Kxe1 ...
 
   Jan-23-12 S Predescu vs Nakamura, 1995 (replies)
 
joshuap: Sadly, I can't find any of nakamura's 1.e4 e5 2.Qh5 games! :( I was interested on how that worked out for him when he was a kid. ;D
 
   Oct-17-11 H Svensson vs P Ornstein, 2001
 
joshuap: Maybe black toutched the wrong piece by accident.
 
   Sep-29-11 Akobian vs The World, 2011 (replies)
 
joshuap: What's wrong with 14. ...Ne4!? Are there any flaws? Unless there are, maybe the reason that nobody is voting for it is because they don't want to trade queens, or don't want a draw. What happens after 14. ...Ne4? Please help me with the variations.
 
   Sep-17-11 Karjakin vs M Kaabi, 2011
 
joshuap: 37.Rh7 is nice. If black saves his bishop with 37...Bc8, black loses to 38.Re7+! Kd8 39.Rg7+ and white will win this easily.
 
   Sep-02-11 Nash vs Jim Jordan, 1979 (replies)
 
joshuap: 1.e4 e5 2.f4 exf4 3.Kf2? No wonder I've never haerd of the tumbleweed. Maybe white accidentally toutched his king. 3...Qh4+ 4.Kf3?? This just plain loses. Maybee white accidentally moed his king To f3 also! That would be a very unlucky coicedence! Honestly, I think Kf3 was just an ...
 
   Aug-28-11 Oll vs J M Hodgson, 1993 (replies)
 
joshuap: 45...Qa2+! is nice, and black has no other way of checkmate. If Black made a blunder like 45...axb4??, black would get checkmated himself with 46.Rd8#
 
   Aug-25-11 Euwe vs G Kroone, 1919 (replies)
 
joshuap: 14.Kh1 Nf2+, forcing 15.Rxf2 Qxf2. (15.Kg1? Nh3+ 16.Kh1 Qg1+! 17.Rxg1 Nf2#) White could get out of this down only an exchange. (Rxf2.) The position isn't great, but white would still have a chance.
 
   Aug-24-11 D Boros vs E Korhonen, 2011
 
joshuap: 23.Rxh5! A nice exchange sacrifice. If taken, I don't believe black can avoid checkmate
