   Jul-31-17 Shabalov vs Jobava, 2017 (replies)
rainingpieces: 18...Bc4 19.Bxc4 Qd6 might be too much for White to handle? 20.Be2 Rxe4 would win for Black, but I suppose rook would be taking on e4 soon enough anyway, which is beautiful.
   Jul-02-17 Kramnik vs Carlsen, 2017 (replies)
rainingpieces: Magnus really enjoys forking pieces in this event
   May-22-17 D Swiercz vs A Baryshpolets, 2017
rainingpieces: No good solution against 41.Qf6. 41..d4 can be tried, but White has a good answer to it.
   Apr-21-17 Caruana vs G Meier, 2017 (replies)
rainingpieces: 34.Rh8+ leads to nice mate. 34...Kxh8 35.Qh6+ Rh7 36.Qf8# or 35...Kg8 36.Re8#
   Apr-02-17 A Sokolov vs Salov, 1983 (replies)
rainingpieces: If 24...Kxf6 then 25.Qd4+ should get the job done. Black has two options: 25...Kd7 26.Re1+ Kd8 27.Qf6+ etc.. 25...Kf5 and I think 26.h4 looks sufficient.
   Oct-31-16 Spassky vs Larry Evans, 1962 (replies)
rainingpieces: On move 22 it is tempting to consider all kinds of sacrifices, but the move played is probably the best. If 22...Nf6 then surely 23.Bxf7 must win on the spot, removing the defender of the g6-pawn.
   Oct-30-16 H Westerinen vs Chandler, 1980 (replies)
rainingpieces: The game-score must be incorrect here, the endgame is a bit silly
   Oct-30-16 H Westerinen vs Larsen, 1969
rainingpieces: A possible Monday puzzle, move 49?
   Oct-25-16 T Luukkonen vs V Sarantos, 2015
rainingpieces: 35.Rg6 very nicely spotted
   Oct-25-16 Chigorin vs Steinitz, 1892 (replies)
rainingpieces: Is the game-score correct? I find the same game in 365chess database and it gives 14...Nb5, though the later position after 16...Nc2 is the same.
