   Nov-07-18 Kramnik vs Adams, 2017 (replies)
 
landshark: <Saturn2> < Not necessarily because of 42...f6> Then 43. Nh4+ Kf7 44. Rf8#
 
   Nov-03-18 K Lerner vs M Roiz, 2008 (replies)
 
landshark: I would have played the same thing OTB at least thru move 23 - but wouldn't have considered it a forcing win.
 
   Nov-01-18 D Wagner vs P Nikolic, 2017 (replies)
 
landshark: I saw this a few months back and still couldn't figure it out today. Now I see my own post from back in February that I saw it in 10 seconds /: Proof that sharks can't evolve, which is well known, but they aren't immune to devolving
 
   Oct-30-18 F Patuzzo vs K Raisanen, 2008 (replies)
 
landshark: Nice mating endgame mating net. Far from being saved by exchanging queens on move 39 - that trade almost underscored the passivity of White's pieces, especially the offside N on a4
 
   Oct-23-18 Ulibin vs D Brandenburg, 2008 (replies)
 
landshark: My assessment of this is that the combo beginning with 16.Nxe6 is nice but White has a lot of work to do until Black plays 25 -Ng4 which I think is the real losing move
 
   Oct-21-18 A Volokitin vs P Nikolic, 2006 (replies)
 
landshark: Got the 1st move easily - always good for a Sunday. Let's see how far I can take this in guess-the-move mode before a misstep -
 
   Oct-20-18 Rublevsky vs Harikrishna, 2006 (replies)
 
landshark: I didn't try to calculate the whole thing out - the sacrifice starting with 21.Rxb7 looks so promising, I'd not hesitate to play that in a blitz game. Doubling your rooks on the 7th rank in exchange for giving up the Queen for a rook and a bishop just makes a lot of sense to me -
 
   Oct-12-18 Geller vs H Liebert, 1970 (replies)
 
landshark: Cool checkmate configuration - I never would have figured it out. I didn't even see it at the point of resignation - although with a very short study (at Move 47, Black to play) I was able to solve the <Monday> type puzzle it had become by then -
 
   Oct-02-18 Seirawan vs E Lobron, 1983 (replies)
 
landshark: After 24.Kf3 Black also has the simple -Rc1, since 25. Ra8+ is met by -Rc8.
 
   Oct-01-18 Chandler vs Y Gruenfeld, 1979 (replies)
 
landshark: Easy because it's the 3rd time we've seen it in the last month :/ Cool position though - I love the Bg1 idea.
