   Jul-18-18 Fedorov vs N Neelakantan, 1999 (replies)
landshark: 25.Nf6+ gxf6 26.Qxg6+ has to win. Probably with 27. Rg1 because Black runs out of checks after .... Qh5+ 28. Kd1. At least that's how I'd start in OTB - probably take a more careful look at my 27th move to make sure there weren't any hidden tricks.

landshark: Send in the heavy artillery
   Jul-12-18 N Eliet vs Rozentalis, 2016 (replies)
landshark: I missed 17...Bh3, opting fort Rf6 instead. I still think it wins - maybe not as quickly as the gamer move?
   Jul-11-18 J Cox vs D Guthrie, 2016 (replies)
landshark: For a while I thought 39....Re7 would save Black but I think it only delays the inevitable. White plays 40.Kd2 and if ....Kf7 then 41.R3xB, RxR 42.a7 queens, or 41... NxR 42.Rb7, Nc7 43.a7 Na8 44.RxR,KxR 45.Ke3 looks like a win because Black's c-pawn will fall and White will ...
   Jul-06-18 Portisch vs Kasparov, 1981 (replies)
landshark: I concocted 42...Nf6 43. e5 Ne4 44. d7 Rxd2 45. d8=Q+ Kh7 46. Qxd2 Qf3+ with a draw and was pretty proud of it. At least it had me halfway convinced - and probably gets refuted somewhere... I missed (and really like) 44... Ng3+.
   Jul-05-18 Guanchu Liu vs Li Chao, 2011 (replies)
landshark: This felt like a difficult Tuesday puzzle - but so elegant. Nice with CG continuing with the theme of prying open the pawn cover to expose the enemy K to lateral rook pressure -
   Jul-04-18 D Morozov vs I Makoveev, 2014 (replies)
landshark: Beautiful double sacrifice de featuring the deadly bishops! 34.... Qh4+!! 35.gxh4, Rh3+! 36.Bxh3, g3# Last night (bleary eyed) I saw all the elements, just could not put them together. Glad I waited until daylight to try again.
   Jul-03-18 Nakamura vs E Iturrizaga, 2017 (replies)
landshark: I'm glad I didn't choose 28.Qxe5 even for a draw because the SF moves given by <Chess Higher Cat> are crazy. Much easier to just go Qf3. Bring on Wednesday!
   Jul-01-18 Drasko vs S Velickovic, 1988 (replies)
landshark: I haven't even followed the rest of it yet but have to say 43... Rc7 is a crazy move. Glad I didn't waste too much time finding that one.
   Jun-28-18 J Rigo vs L Espig, 1977 (replies)
landshark: I think 27.Bf8+ is even faster than the game line.
