nasher: If two teams tie, we need to ask the question which team is the better of the two teams ? If these two teams played other and one team beats the other, then that team is the better of the two teams.
   Mar-12-18 Carlsen vs K Holm, 2018 (replies)
nasher: Monday puzzle ... supposed to easy ... it took me forever to find the mate in two. Then I noticed the white player was Carlsen and I said to myself bet Carlsen saw the mate in two in about 2 seconds ... or maybe not.
   Sep-08-17 Nakamura vs L Bruzon Batista, 2017 (replies)
nasher: I guess this is why you never see anyone castle king side and put his rook back on the h-file.
   Jul-17-17 Flohr vs Bogoljubov, 1931 (replies)
nasher: Three things make this a difficult puzzle: (1) the g2 rook has three possible moves to consider and the knight has two possible moves to consider, (2) the answer is a quiet move, and (3) it is a Monday so I automatically look for something simple. This took me at least five minutes ...
   Jul-13-17 P Carlsson vs J B Campos-Moreno, 2006 (replies)
nasher: Can white win with Qe3 ? It attacks the black queen and threatens Bxg7.
   Jul-08-17 Bologan vs A Campanile, 1994 (replies)

   Jun-26-17 I Bukavshin vs E Inarkiev, 2015 (replies)
nasher: We have a holiday today, so I thought this was a Sunday puzzle. There was only one move that makes any possible sense for white, Nf6+. Black can either lose his queen or play Kf8. Again, there is only one move that makes any sense for white, Rh8+. Black must play Bxh8 and white can ...
   Jun-12-17 Prince Dadian vs Doubrava, 1896 (replies)
nasher: Thanks for your funny story <Once>. I always like to read your posts. Thanks again.
   May-23-17 B Savchenko vs A Kostin, 2007 (replies)
nasher: I got this, but only after a long time. Since it is a puzzle, there has to be a win somewhere. I immediately looked at RxB, Rxf7, Qxh6, Qxf7, Nxf7, Nf6+ and Nh7+ and none of these worked. I almost gave up, but instead concluded it must be a queen move and finally saw Qg6 threatens ...

nasher: <bcks1234> looks good ... thanks
