   Sep-23-18 Panov vs Bondarevsky, 1937 (replies)
landshark: It's weird - today must be Shark Day. My guesswork led like this: 17...Rxe2 18. Bxc7 Bxf2+ 19. Kh2 Rxe1 20. Qf3 Re3 21. Qd1 and I figured Black is winning here - instead of VK's -Bg3!!, I thought -Ng4+ would be enough, which it surely is after 22. Kh1 Re1+ 23. Qxe1 Bxe1 24. Rxe1 ...
   Sep-21-18 W Bialas vs Uhlmann, 1951 (replies)
landshark: I got as far as move 20 where I veered with ...Bd7, which I still think has a strong attack. Why i didn't play ...Ne3 was that I didn't like 21.RxR, NxQ, 22.RxN with enough material advantage to surround the K with counterattacking pieces - I missed the Ne3 idea altogether. In ...
   Sep-19-18 Lubensky vs Geller, 1949 (replies)
landshark: My choice (the game continuation 33...Be3+) was a winner in 1949, inadequate in 2009, but brilliant today - provided you followed it with the computer genius move 34...Rf8!! At some future point I wonder if 1.f3 will be proven to win in all lines - -

landshark: <Check It Out> Interesting line possible here - 22. hxg7 Qxd5 23. gxf8=Q+ Kxf8 24. Bc5+ Re7 25. Rxh7 Qxf3 26. Qxf3 Nxf3 27. Bxe7+ Kxe7 28. g6 Ng5 29. Rg7 Kf6. Now if 30.Rh8+ Kg7 31.Rxa8?? Re1#. To me it looks like -Qxd5 is a good response to 22.hxg7 and I think it at ...
   Sep-16-18 A Muzychuk vs Tan Zhongyi, 2017 (replies)
landshark: I feel pretty good that I got A) the first move right, and B) the right idea of Qd3+ and Ng5+ (although wrong order). In my world that = good positional assessemnt - considering there were other ways to potentially conduct the attack (such as g4 etc) which I discarded as too slow.
   Sep-15-18 Smirin vs Pelletier, 2002 (replies)
landshark: Maybe they'll post another one for a real Saturday puzzle soon....
   Sep-10-18 Chandler vs Y Gruenfeld, 1979 (replies)
landshark: I think I've seen this position before - oh yeah, just last week. Doesn't even take frontal lobes to recognize that -
   Sep-09-18 Kamsky vs D Naroditsky, 2017 (replies)
landshark: <WorstPlayerEver> In this variation you offered: 34. b5 Ra3 35. Qc4 Kf8 36. b6 Qa6 37.Qc6 Bh4 38. Nxc3 Bb7 39. Qc7 - I think the exchange sac by Black -Rxc3 40. Qxc3 d5 leaves Black with the advantage - White must retreat the B, then -Qxb6 threatens to capture on f2, ...
   Sep-05-18 O Adu vs A Kim, 2008 (replies)
landshark: 29. -RxN does the trick: If 30.f4xR, Nf2 mates and if 30.d4xR, QxQ is sufficient if not quickly mating too. If W ignores the capture, he's too far behind in material plus his exposed K will prove quickly fatal.
   Sep-02-18 J Szmetan vs G Garcia Gonzalez, 1976 (replies)
landshark: Stunningly beautiful combination on top of a beautiful idea (18.Bd4 inducing -d5). That this guy wasn't a top GM floors me -
