   Jun-20-18 Topalov vs T Paehtz Sr, 2017 (replies)
 
njchess: I remembered this game because it was so short. White will have a 2 pawn advantage plus several tempi. Black has few, if any attacking options. His best is probably ♘f6, ♘e4 but then what? Meanwhile, White can steamroll the queen side forcing Black to concede more ...
 
   Jun-18-18 Taimanov vs Psakhis, 1981
 
njchess: After concluding that Black had no obvious attacking combinations with his knights, the only piece that I thought could be improved was the rook via 25. ... ♖e8 Δ ♕xe2+ 26. ♘e5 best -+
 
   Jun-15-18 K Rohonyan vs A L'Ami, 2008 (replies)
 
njchess: Not super difficult. The problem I had was, what to do with White's bishop. And more importantly, after moving the bishop, what would Black do? 18. ♖xd7+ ♔xd7 19. ♘c5+ ♔d6 (19. ... ♔c7 or ♔d8 20. ♘xe6+ or 19. ... ♔e7 20. ♕xe6+ ...
 
   Jun-14-18 G Jones vs V Dobrov, 2017 (replies)
 
njchess: 24. ♘d6! ♖e5 ▢ 25. ♖xe7! +- Black has few if any good moves at this point. Perhaps 25. ... ♕d3+, forcing the queen trade, is the best of the worst. More likely, he should just resign.
 
   Jun-12-18 M Efroimski vs T Munkhchuluun, 2008 (replies)
 
njchess: There is no obvious mating attack, so time to simplify to a winning end game for Black with 41. ... ♖a2xe2 42. ♖xe2 ♖g1+ 43. ♔d2 ♖xb1 44. ♔c2 ♖a1 45. ♔b3 ♖a3+ 44. ♔xb4 ♖xg3 -+ The rest is academic. Time to see when ...
 
   Jun-09-18 Averbakh vs Kotov, 1953 (replies)
 
njchess: Fairly famous game... because of the puzzle position! Kotov sacs his queen to prevent White king from retreating. I don't know how much time was on the clock leading up to this move, let alone for this move, but I can't imagine he had a lot. Both sides then play tenaciously, if not ...
 
   Jun-09-18 S Volkov vs D Anikonov, 2016
 
njchess: A nice, move counting puzzle. The only way for Black to capture the pawn is with his king, which will require 3 moves. In order to promote the pawn, White needs to drive the bishop from a5-d8 diagonal. 115. ♘b7 effectively ends the game. The knight now attacks both the a5 and ...
 
   Jun-06-18 B Adhiban vs D Andreikin, 2017 (replies)
 
njchess: Move counting 101 solves this puzzle. White needs three moves to promote the pawn. White needs to prevent Black's rook from moving to a1 to then capture the pawn. 40. ♘c2! ♖xc2? 41. a7 +- 40. ♘c2! g4+ 41. ♔d3 (♔e2? ♖xc2+ -+) gxh3 42. a7 h2 43. ...
 
   May-30-18 A Heimann vs B Stillger, 2017 (replies)
 
njchess: A deceptive puzzle. Like most, I spent time looking for a threat to the Black king from the given position, but the knight was on the wrong square. Then, I turned my attention to Black's bishop which was guarded by the awkwardly placed rook. All I needed to do was displace the ...
 
   May-27-18 Kamsky vs Kramnik, 1994 (replies)
 
njchess: I got the game line up to 26. ♖fb1 which was the point of the knight sac. I'm not sure if White is winning, but I do value the position as ±.
