   Jan-14-17 Nakamura vs Le Quang Liem, 2015 (replies)
nalinw: The idea of Bxh7+ and then a fork check with the Queen was used at least twice by White ....
   Jan-11-17 K Corker vs R Samar, 1999 (replies)
nalinw: I thought the pun was lame until I saw the White King's vacation tour!!
   Jan-09-17 Chandler vs O I Barkan, 1975 (replies)
nalinw: In Xiangqi - aka Chinese Chess - it would already be mate if the Rook at g1 was a Cannon. Cannons move like Rooks but attack - and capture - only over one intervening piece (friend or foe). It is a great game - triple and even quadruple checks are possible!
   Dec-29-16 J M Bellon Lopez vs G Garcia, 1976 (replies)
nalinw: I saw many of the ideas around the fork - but not THE idea of mate in 3!
   Dec-24-16 Bogoljubov / Reti / Spielmann vs Englund / Jacobson / Nyholm / Olso, 1919 (replies)
nalinw: Nice pun - the game actually ends with a "gift". Season's greeting to all.
   Dec-21-16 V Soultanbeieff vs V Borodin, 1943 (replies)
nalinw: I didn't get it either - it IS not as obvious as most Wednesdays - on the other hand the number of possible tries is very limited - shows that I am too lazy to do it by elimination!
   Dec-11-16 K Commons vs P Peev, 1976 (replies)
nalinw: I went for Bxg6 because it was in the pun :-)
   Dec-04-16 P K Wells vs Y Habu, 2005 (replies)
nalinw: That is because attack at all costs IS the very essence of Shogi. If you ever stop the attack your opponent will attack back - the key difference being that every piece you sacrifice is available to him to parachute back on the board as one of his pieces!!
   Nov-22-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
nalinw: Nice PB ....
   Oct-30-16 P H Nielsen vs Sadvakasov, 2002 (replies)
nalinw: I agree with <RandomVisitor> - engines add to our understanding of complex positions. I think most of us try the problem on our own - with or without the analysis board. After that it is very enlightening to hear what people have found with engines.
