   Jan-22-17 Taimanov vs V Mikenas, 1965 (replies)
 
stacase: After a very bad week I get the first 3 moves of Sunday's insane offering, but I would have moved 23.Ng5+

stacase: 28...Bxg7 trades Bishops and wins the Rook. Black doesn't accept the trade and loses the game instead.
 
   Jan-10-17 W van Lankveld vs Van der Wiel, 2000 (replies)
 
stacase: Easier than yesterday, Black had to say check to avoid 29.Qg7# and there wasn't some other line that went nowhere to waste time considering. Making sure that White's King couldn't escape to c1 was the only complication. All in all, it was pretty much Wham Bam Thank You Ma'am! < ...

stacase: <Phony Benoni: This would be a nice puzzle in Cannibal Chess ...> Ah, it does have a name. Great variation.
 
   Jan-04-17 Seirawan vs Beliavsky, 1988 (replies)
 
stacase: Cute! 21...Bf3 threatens mate and 22 PxB followed by 22...PxP again threatens mate with White unable to defend.

stacase: Oh wow! Was that easy or what?
 
   Dec-30-16 K Rogoff vs S Spencer, 1969 (replies)
 
stacase: All of White's pieces are positioned just right. How come that never happens in my games? I suppose it does, I just never see it (-:
 
   Dec-28-16 F Hedke vs J Brenninkmeijer, 1996 (replies)
 
stacase: Black has to say check or defend against the mate at Qh8# and so 34...Rh3+ gets the nod. White can get out of check by moving or capture Black's Rook. The Rook capture merely prolongs the agony. This was a lot more fun than yesterday's fiasco (-:
 
   Dec-25-16 S Zhigalko vs I Bukavshin, 2015 (replies)
 
stacase: <diagonalley: ...certainly a long sequence... but hardly "insane" ... (it almost plays itself!) ... merry xmas everybody!> Almost exactly what I was going to say.
 
   Dec-14-16 Keres vs D Byrne, 1972 (replies)
 
stacase: The first reaction is 32 Rxf7 threatening mate and then you notice that Pawn down there in the corner ready to Queen & say check. Oh dear! But what else is there to do? 32 Rxg6+ leads to a reacquaintance with how clumsy Rooks can be. And so maybe a revisit of 32 Rxf7 allowing Black ...
