   Apr-13-18 J van Foreest vs L'Ami, 2017 (replies)
njchess: I think I got this after a LOT of thought. First I had 25. ♖x♘ c4x♖ 26. ♕xe5+ ♔d8 27. ♕x♖+ ♕e8 and the attack fizzles. Then, it occurred to me if I could push the d pawn, with rook support, to d6, then the Black king gets pinned on the
   Apr-04-18 Navara vs A Pashikian, 2016 (replies)
njchess: Black blundered his own bishop away. At least White saw the quiet 32. ♕d2 to take advantage of Blacks 31. ... ♖cc8??, and so did I.
   Mar-18-18 W So vs M Prusikin, 2006 (replies)
njchess: I thought this was pretty easy for a Sunday. Given Black's position, the goal for White is {Qxg6+. Therefore, 19. Nxe6 Qxe6 20. Nxd5! Qf7 (Qxd5? 21. Re7 Rf7 Qxg6+ +-) 21. Re7 Qf5 22. Qxd4 +- The rest is tactics.
   Mar-13-18 Korchnoi vs G Barcza, 1966 (replies)
njchess: Black is clearly playing for a draw. 7. ... e5 releases all tension in the position and deprives Black of any active pieces. Instead of playing queen side, Black looks to defend and finds himself meandering by move 15. Viktor isn't buying any of the draw tactics and just squeezes ...
   Mar-12-18 Ed. Lasker vs N Whitaker, 1921
njchess: Chess theory has come a long way since this game was played, especially with the French. French exchange games usually result in draws. Aside from 26. ... ♕h2!?, Black does little to give White pause.
   Mar-09-18 Fischer vs S Schweber, 1970 (replies)
njchess: I only got this because I recognized the game. I might have thought of this over the board, after a great deal of thought. For me, it's not so much about the move, but the underlying idea or concept that is difficult for me to see. Fischer obviously saw that the rook would dominate ...
   Mar-05-18 Motylev vs M Godena, 2010
njchess: Nice puzzle. Black has committed his queen to capturing material, but instead, finds his queen sidelined. Right away, I liked putting White's queen into the middle of the board via ♕xd4. So, the idea of 12. ♘xd4! was appealing, but I wasn't sure if Black would/should ...
   Feb-28-18 Ftacnik vs Gotti, 1987 (replies)
njchess: When I first saw this position, I thought it was some sort of Dutch defense gone very wrong. Not only is Black's knight poorly positioned on f7 rather than f6, but White also firmly controls the e4 square. Given the above, I thought it strange that Black played e5, which must have ...
   Feb-25-18 Movsesian vs Leko, 2012 (replies)
njchess: I agree. The critical move was 28. exd8=♘+. I thought 23. ♖xd7 ♔xd7 24. gxf5 fxg5 25. e6+ ♔c8 26. e7 was pretty obvious. I wasn't sure what Black would do for his 26th move, but I thought White should play 27. ♖e1 forcing ♖e8. I spent a lot of ...
   Feb-22-18 D Wagner vs P Nikolic, 2017 (replies)
njchess: An embarrassing effort from Black. White takes full advantage of Black's questionable play. I love 17. ♕c2! It's a quiet, subtle move that effectively ends the game.
