   Dec-15-17 Kasparov vs Lautier, 1994 (replies)
rodchuck: I tried and tried to make Qxg8 work, without success. Finally after about 15 minutes I found Ng4, with the idea of challenging the black queen, and if 28... Rxg5, then Nxe5 probably winning. I haven't seen this game before, but was happy that the solution was correct. Thank you ...

rodchuck: <diagonalley><Strelets>If you are using firefox, this is no longer supported by java, so all viewers except pgn4web no longer work. A real nuisance, but not all advances in life are positive....
   Jul-19-17 A Gavrilov vs B Grachev, 2007 (replies)
rodchuck: How about 35....Ne1+ 36. Kh2 Nc2?
   Jun-27-17 I Bukavshin vs E Inarkiev, 2015 (replies)
rodchuck: It would seem that poisoning of critical opponents of the Russian regime (Alexander Litvinenko for example) is not exactly unknown, but why murder a promising young chess grandmaster?
   Jun-14-17 Prince Dadian vs Doubrava, 1896 (replies)

   May-28-17 R Gonzalez vs S Shankland, 2009
rodchuck: 13.....Re7: Oh dear! practically the only move that black shouldn't have made!
   May-26-17 Huynh Mai Phuong Dung vs T Nguyen, 2005 (replies)
rodchuck: Hoo Phlung Dung?
   May-23-17 B Savchenko vs A Kostin, 2007 (replies)
rodchuck: I really struggled with this one, trying combinations on f7, until the Arabian mate structure with knight and rook finally dawned on me. Just a question of luring f7 out of the way - Qg6 et voilà!
   Mar-29-17 M Amini vs R Gralla, 2010 (replies)
rodchuck: Yes, the text solution is very nice. I must confess the queen "sacrifice" never occurred to me (shows my level of chess, I'm afraid) - I would have played Bb8 with the threat of Re8. Not so pretty but still conclusive I think?
   Feb-25-17 Bacrot vs I Lysyj, 2009 (replies)
rodchuck: In common with <late bishop>, <stst> and <The King's Domain> I went for Nxe6, but didn't work it out as far as <stst> did.
