   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.

steinitzfan: To get the attack rolling here is easy. To see that it succeeds -- difficult.
 
   Mar-05-17 A Raykhman vs T Heinemann, 2016 (replies)
 
steinitzfan: Good puzzle. Too much for me but a good puzzle. The variations are intricate but very clear - assuming there's no spoiler in there. I would never have known that White loses material if he takes the rook.
 
   Mar-01-17 A Korotylev vs Mamedyarov, 2007 (replies)
 
steinitzfan: A short but very deep combination.
 
   Feb-21-17 R Krogius vs A Ojanen, 1944 (replies)
 
steinitzfan: I was at first attracted to 12 O-O-O+. I think 12 Rd1+ is actually clearer though. Keeping the c1 square open for the rook can be valuable. The game line is fine though. There are probably other ways to win as well.
 
   Feb-05-17 Steinitz vs Allies, 1880 (replies)
 
steinitzfan: This is a wild game. It just didn't seem right that there was no kibitzing on it so I put this comment here. Strange that the person most of us think of as the the founder of position play created this weird gambit. He seems to have done well with it against some strong ...
 
   Feb-04-17 Spassky vs Averkin, 1973 (replies)
 
steinitzfan: It looks like Spassky won the exchange with what looks like it could be one of the harder Fred Reinfeld puzzles -- still too much for me. I wonder if this was adequate to win without the genius-level play starting with 30.Rxf7. Oddly, Black's pieces just can't coordinate at that
 
   Feb-01-17 Spassky vs Fischer, 1970 (replies)
 
steinitzfan: I remember when this game was played. I misread and thought Fischer had won it. Bummer when I realized otherwise. In those days most of us were expecting Fischer to beat Spassky eventually. Although he had never beaten Spassky at the time, he was beating their mutual opponents ...
 
   Jan-21-17 A Backlund vs J van Foreest, 2016 (replies)
 
steinitzfan: I didn't get it but unlike most weekend puzzles I can at least legitimately aspire to be able to get puzzles like this. A little hard work maybe. Black creates some powerful mate threats and White is forced to pay to deal with them. I don't see why he surrendered the second pawn
 
   Dec-27-16 Morphy vs NN, 1855 (replies)
 
steinitzfan: Actually, I am enjoying seeing how Fritz handles the game line with 20Bf6. Has anyone written a book that just shows the fantastic things that engines can accomplish? The engine evaluates White's position as about +2.0 after 20Bf6. White moves an early Be4 and Black's king pawn ...
