   Sep-17-17 A Montalvo vs Blatny, 1997 (replies)
pittpanther: Seems to me that 20 Qa3 is better and then white can either not capture if black takes on e2 with N or R or as noted above, if 20....Rxe2 play 21. Bxe2 Nxe2 22. Kg2 followed by Nd2 on the next move and white seems to hold.

pittpanther: Why doesn't black play 57....h2? White can't play c8 because the room captures with check.
   May-30-17 P Makoli vs F Doettling, 2007 (replies)
pittpanther: Perhaps I am just slow today but I found the puzzle harder than most Tuesday puzzles. I did eventually get it but it took me several minutes.
   Aug-22-16 K Burger vs Benko, 1969 (replies)
pittpanther: As some others have noted, it took me a LONG time to solve this puzzle. I kept looking at Nxh3 or Ne2. I did finally get it though. My mind must be working a bit slow on this Monday morning!
   Mar-25-16 Spielmann vs Tarrasch, 1923
pittpanther: If black plays 30....Rxf7 is there a clear win for white?
   Dec-04-15 Kramnik vs Morozevich, 2014 (replies)
pittpanther: I also am struggling to see the clear win for white after 31. Nh3 Ne8 32. hg Qxh3. I presume white's best is gxf8 but after Kxf8 I am not sure that white is clearly winning.
   Sep-29-15 J Madsen vs L B Hansen, 1982 (replies)
pittpanther: Question: Could black have survived after 26 ... Qxh3 followed by fg? If white takes the queen with his queen and then plays Ng5 seems black can play Kf8 and run away to d8 and white does not have enough pieces left to mate him. If white takes the queen with the pawn and then ...
   Aug-12-15 S Agdestein vs Karjakin, 2014 (replies)
pittpanther: What about 27...Rg6 with the threat of playing 28...Rh6? If white moves his queen then play Ng4 and pick up a second exchange (and then black can check with R and Q on the h and g files and penetrate in leading to a clear victory). That also seems to lead to a winning position -
   Jul-18-15 Browne vs Wojtkiewicz, 2004 (replies)
pittpanther: Can black play 20....Ke8? If white plays Bh6 black can play Qc5 or if white tries Bg5 black can get in f6 and I think survive. Thoughts?
   Nov-02-14 Morozevich vs S Chekhov, 2014 (replies)
pittpanther: I agree with others that this was too easy for Sunday. Normally, I cannot get Sunday puzzles or I only see the first few moves. Today I saw the main idea in only 1-2 minutes. I am either getting a lot better (I wish - but strongly doubt it!) or the puzzle was easy. Sorry to be ...
