landshark: Oops - I thought 27...Qe2 worked but alas White's 28.Qe1 holds easily. Another won game lost to careless haste -
   Jan-14-19 G O'Toole vs R Haria, 2009 (replies)
landshark: I love Tuesdays - With Black's pieces so blocked off and the pawn on f6 White has an entirely free hand. Black is helpless in the face of the quiet move 40.Qf4 - 40.... gxh5 41.Qg5+ Kf8 42.Qg7+ Ke8 43.Qf8# 40... Qe8 41.Qh6 and the dual threats of Qg7# and Qh8# are ...

landshark: I have a hard time picking up the thread in wide-open tactical situations - like this one here where it was: Fuhgeddaboudit!!! Good job to all of you who saw the first 3 moves or more (: Can anyone recommend a good source of tactical training especially for these wide open ...

landshark: Completely beyond me -
   Jan-11-19 Yusupov vs Gulko, 1990 (replies)
landshark: 1) I think I've seen this position before and still can't remember the move - 2) At first (and second and third) glance, I think White's best move is to resign - - 3) Knowing this is a puzzle and sitting here refreshed after a cup of tea after a long work day, I finally catch onto
   Jan-10-19 Bologan vs M Hansen, 2011 (replies)
landshark: White wins a piece with: 34.Rxd5 cxd5 35.Nb6+ Kd8 36.Rc1 ..... The only way to avoid mate is .... Rxg2+ 37.Kxg2 Rg8+ 38.Kf2 Ke8 Black is a piece down -
   Jan-09-19 V Iotov vs Chris Millar, 2008 (replies)
landshark: 23.Ng6+ hxg6 24.Qh3+ Bh4 25.Rxf8+ Kh7 otherwise ....Qxf8 26.Qxh4# 26.Rxc8 White is up a Rook with zilch counterplay for Black
   Jan-08-19 K Mekhitarian vs W Arencibia, 2005 (replies)
landshark: Dang!! I miseed 19.... Qd4 which after 20. Qxd4+ exd4 21. Bxb7 Ra7 22. Bxc6 at least White isn't losing, and is even a pawn up. But not as simple or good as the move played in the game.

landshark: I agree with those who say this is an unusually complex situation for a Monday - I solved it but had to check myself several times before clicking on the game. And I didn't see <Thea N>'s best line, returning one exchange to stamp out White's counterplay - my line after ...
   Jan-06-19 I Radulov vs L Spassov, 1974 (replies)
landshark: Of course in my line 27.Qc3 Black has ....RxQ winning. White is cooked in any case.
