   Apr-01-18 B Hare vs K Budge, 1958
 
razetime: A very nice game, and a perfectly executed mating attack. The only thing that can prolong black's game is Bf4+ and that is crushed by Nexf4 Qxg6 Rh8# The king is given no space to move, and every other response is answered by Rh8#.
 
   Apr-01-18 AlphaZero vs Stockfish, 2017 (replies)
 
razetime: Win in 96 moves, is a bit hard to calculate, even for a Sunday puzzle, dont'cha think?
 
   Mar-30-18 Caruana vs Kasparov, 2017
 
razetime: <LucB> Well, Kasparov was at 3 secs on the clock, and resigning was actually a courtesy by Caruana. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bm0... Very nice mating sequence by the legend himself.
 
   Mar-28-18 F Frenkel vs C Lakdawala, 1987 (replies)
 
razetime: Not too hard of a puzzle.. But a nice game. Black's pieces are more active and well used to win the exchange, while three of white's pieces watch like spectators.
 
   Mar-26-18 Karpov vs Topalov, 2002 (replies)
 
razetime: <N.O.F.NAJDORF> Stockfish says Qh6 is the best move in this position. Let's see why. Ka3 is honestly not a great move. Moving the bishop instantly loses to Qh8#. Leaving the bishop there gets Karpov material, and the pawns on 5th rank are threatened. The queen cannot move

razetime: My condolences.
 
   Mar-23-18 S Khavsky vs Korchnoi, 1950 (replies)
 
razetime: <boxcar2> Korchnoi defends the threat of white's attack with an interesting queen sacrifice., and goes on to tear the white kingside open after 22. Qxg6 because the queen completely leaves the support of the kind after that.
 
   Mar-22-18 W Kornfeld vs Zukertort, 1865
 
razetime: White did not want to castle and got absolutely throttled for it. An instructive miniature.
 
   Mar-19-18 S Mareco vs E Hansen, 2017
 
razetime: The Queen, rook and bishop are completely pulled away from the defense of the king to make for a beautiful forced mate. Very nice game. Stockfish says that the defining moment was at move 22. Qc2. I wonder what it takes to see such a sacrifice and its continuation in a Rapid game.
 
   Mar-19-18 A Guest vs Bird, 1886 (replies)
 
razetime: I think this was fine until the Queen moved away from the defense of the king. And then it just kept getting worse and worse.
