   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.
   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 ...
