   Sep-21-18 W Bialas vs Uhlmann, 1951 (replies)
pittpanther: Nice game. I have played the French for 30 years and Uhlmann is one of my favorite players due to his loyalty to the French!
   Sep-03-18 Chandler vs Y Gruenfeld, 1979 (replies)
pittpanther: I thought this was harder than a typical Monday. This was more Tuesday level I thought. But overall, I liked the problem, interesting combination.
   Jul-04-18 D Morozov vs I Makoveev, 2014 (replies)
pittpanther: Found this knowing it's a puzzle. If I was merely observing this game I don't think I would have seen the combination.
   Mar-07-18 Sasikiran vs S D Swapnil, 2017 (replies)
pittpanther: I looked at this a long time. I figured if 38 Be5, then 38...Bxe5 39. Qxf7 followed by 39...Rxf2 by black and the white win was not that clear. Not clear enough for a Wednesday at least.
   Feb-20-18 D Abrahams vs K Arakhamia-Grant, 2017 (replies)
pittpanther: I actually found this difficult to see - took me much longer than a typical Tuesday.
   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.
   Aug-27-17 G Halvax vs A D Ivanova, 2012 (replies)
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?
