   Nov-19-17 Jan Timman
wtpy: Paarhufer,I can't find this game on the data base, but I wonder why GM Timman did not play Be2 followed by Bf3. If white tries to slide his king over to f1,to trap the knight then Bg2+ Kg2 looks like Timman could extract knight with Nh3 and white can't capture because of discovered ...

wtpy: I saw the game continuation quickly but for some reason couldn't see the response to 32., Nf6 33 ef6 Kf6 last night when I initially looked at it, but the response seems simpler this morning.Still perfect for this week.

wtpy: I also captured with the knight because I thought 21 ..gf5 22 Nh8+ Qh8 23 Qc2 was a plus but Olga disagrees and sadly she is almost always right.

wtpy: Great game
   Nov-05-17 R Gralla vs S Demel, 2015
wtpy: This is an all roads lead to mate kind of position. After Rg4 the top 3 moves (and maybe more) all come with mate in x moves per Stockfish.

wtpy: Sheesh, I have to stop trying to solve these before I go to bed; I went with Re8, the no style, no elan winning move.
   Oct-28-17 Korchnoi vs Suetin, 1952
wtpy: 24..c3 is also a considerable improvement on black's play.
   Oct-28-17 Qi Jingxuan vs Liu Wenzhe, 1987 (replies)
wtpy: So I guess I got this one. The first divergence between my analysis and the game was that I wanted to play 23..Bc3 rather than Rel which stockfish gives a-2.30, a slightly better eval than the game move. To me this us still a somewhat unsatisfactory puzzle because 20...Nd7 seems almost
   Oct-27-17 Nakamura vs Topalov, 2016 (replies)
wtpy: So I miss Tuesday and wednesday problems, something I almost never do. Tuesday because i took 15 seconds to see an exchange win that wasn't and Wednesday because I didn't calculate deeply enough to see a stinger. Yesterday's endgame was interesting but not terribly difficult and today ...

wtpy: Spent way too much time looking and at the end came up empty.
