   Oct-15-19 Alekhine vs Tylor, 1937 (replies)
landshark: I saw the tactic right away but struggled with the resulting endgame, missing the motif of sacrificing the passer on d6 in order to mow down black's remaining queenside pawns.
   Oct-10-19 Carlsen vs Kuzubov, 2019 (replies)
landshark: Funny - So did I
   Oct-09-19 F Vallejo Pons vs N Huschenbeth, 2010 (replies)
landshark: Because this was a puzzle I saw the solution quite quickly - but OTB in G15 format which is what I usually play, this is the type of opportunity I often miss -
   Sep-22-19 Kiril D Georgiev vs Dlugy, 1983 (replies)
landshark: Insane starting position - looks like something I might get into in a blitz game when playing at the absolute top of my game. Insane game too - And apparently an insane 'solution' as well.
   Sep-15-19 R H Steinmeyer vs Berliner, 1959 (replies)
landshark: Hats off to Hans Berliner, one of the greatest correspondence players of all time - Gorgeous old-school win!
   Sep-04-19 M Kobalia vs Smagin, 1999 (replies)
landshark: Same as <Saturn2>. Looking for an improvement for Black, after 26.Be3 I like .... Bxe3 (!) with the idea of 27.Rxe3 Ne7 to get out of that pin, because if white takes the Q then it's ... Rxc1+ mating, therefore 28.Rxc8+ Qxc8 and the game goes on.
   Jul-30-19 Bologan vs Bacrot, 2001 (replies)
landshark: I took the long way around with 30.... Nb4+ 31.Ka1 Nc2+ 32.Kb1 NxB+ 33.Rd3 BxR+ 34.Ka1..... and finally Nxb3# Didn't take the time to see 30.... Nc1+ does away with all those fun N moves on the way to the same outcome.
   Jul-29-19 Benko vs I A Horowitz, 1968 (replies)
landshark: Now that's a real Queen-Sac Monday (:
   Jun-25-19 Miles vs C W Pritchett, 1982 (replies)
landshark: It wasn't until I started looking for defensive moves for White that I found today's solution. What a wonderful puzzle!
   Jun-17-19 A Hugaert vs B Gundavaa, 2009 (replies)
landshark: Out of curiosity I tried to find a better move for White than the immediately losing 49.Qd3 - One way to avoid the ....Ng3+ fork while defending against the # that happened in the game would have been Qc2. 49. Qc2 Ng3+ 50. Kg1 Ne2+ 51. Kf2 Rg2+ 52. Ke1 Qg3+ 53. Kd2 Nxd4# Hmmm....
