   Jan-24-18 Vogt vs G Kuzmin, 1971 (replies)
steinitzfan: I would never find this pin over the board. First off, it's rare for a pin to win a piece of lesser value. For that to happen, there has to be nothing that can be brought up to defend the pinned piece's square. Second, you have to remove a knight and deflect a pawn to make it ...

steinitzfan: Patzer2 -I'm going to give myself a 90 for this one even though I missed that 32Rd2 hangs the g6 rook. I'm getting a little better with the Wednesday puzzles.
   Oct-09-17 Capablanca vs Manuel Augusto Molina, 1911 (replies)
steinitzfan: mriddle - I think in your line, 40Ka6 makes mate at a7 inevitable. I'll check it on the computer later though.
   Sep-23-17 W Schmidt vs J Lewi, 1968 (replies)
steinitzfan: This game reminds me of yesterday's. Black just can't send any relief to the kingside and it's hard to see why except through brute calculation.
   Jul-17-17 Flohr vs Bogoljubov, 1931 (replies)
steinitzfan: It's short enough to be a Monday puzzle. That's about all. Wisht I could see it over the board.
   Jun-19-17 Van der Wiel vs J van Baarle, 1983 (replies)
steinitzfan: This is hard Monday. A short simple solution but a lot of blind alleys.
   May-06-17 Morphy vs NN, 1855 (replies)
steinitzfan: Correction: In my first post of the day (the 6th) the move I gave as 22...Ra8 should have been 22...Ra8-d8.
   Apr-22-17 Carlsen vs Yu Yangyi, 2015 (replies)
steinitzfan: I'm tempted to actually give myself credit for this one. You do an asymmetric exchange (not really a sacrifice) and get a lot of pressure. A lot of defensive tries by Black to check out after that. Interesting that White can increase his advantage with a queen trade. Avoiding a ...
   Mar-25-17 I Cheparinov vs Drasko, 2007 (replies)
steinitzfan: <unferth> After h3, Black sacs Bxg2. The king takes the bishop and Black moves Qf2. That pawn on h3 is blocking the king's flight so he moves to h1. Qh2 is mate. I'll check the line this evening and let you know if anything's wrong but I believe I'm recalling it correctly.
   Mar-12-17 I Nikolayev vs M Gregory, 2007 (replies)
steinitzfan: To get the attack rolling here is easy. To see that it succeeds -- difficult.
