mel gibson: A 2 pawn advantage search is not the kind of puzzle I was looking for. I didn't see it. No way I would have resigned if I was Black.

mel gibson: I must be too tired. I didn't see it. Stockfish 9 says: 29. Rg4 f5 (29. .. f5 (f7-f5 ♖g4-e4 f5xe4 ♘g5xe4 ♖b8-c8 ♔g1-f1 ♖c8-c2 ♔f1-e1 ♗a2-d5 ♔e1-d1 ♗d5xe4 ♘d2xe4 ♖c2-a2 ♗a3xd6 ♗e7xd6 g2-g4 ...

mel gibson: <Stockfish should test 19.Rae1> Stockfish 9 says a draw. The computer is sometimes wrong on end games. It can do things like leaving a pawn on the a or h file which a human knows is not very good as it can be impossible to Queen.

mel gibson: It seems obvious once you're shown. I opted for 18. Q-d3. I checked it in Stockfish 9 & it does give more than a 2 pawn advantage to White but nothing like the devastating solution.

mel gibson: < I don't see this as clearly winning as the game line.> True - but it's still a solution.

mel gibson: Easy today. Black is left completely exposed.
 
   Jun-10-18 Gelfand vs Beliavsky, 1991 (replies)
 
mel gibson: That's difficult as it's the only winning move. I tried many others & they all fail using a computer.
 
   Jun-08-18 S Volkov vs D Anikonov, 2016 (replies)
 
mel gibson: That's difficult as every other move is a draw. I didn't like swapping Queens at move 26. I think swapping Queens for little or no gain is silly. It drew out the game to make it long & tedious. Stockfish 9 recommended instead 26 Kf2.

mel gibson: I also got the first 2 moves very quickly. I could see that White would have a dangerous passed pawn.
 
   Jun-05-18 D Perez vs J Jackova, 2008 (replies)
 
mel gibson: I saw 33...Rc2. This gives mate in 7.
