   May-22-18 D Bojovic vs M Zarkovic, 2008 (replies)
zb2cr: Simple. 25. Qxe6. No matter whether Black recaptures with Bishop or Knight, White mates with 26. Nb6#.
   May-21-18 S Maroroa vs A Diamant, 2018 (replies)
zb2cr: As with <Cheapo by the Dozen> and <stacase>, this position reminded me of the little book "Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess", with its relentless focus on back-rank mates. The only difficult part was seeing that the d-file Rook should not be the one to give check. Thus, 38. ...
   May-14-18 F Beltz vs A Guerrero Rodriguez, 2008 (replies)
zb2cr: I believe the pattern has been called the lawnmower mate", for the parallel paths covered by the mating side's heavy pieces. 31. Rxg6+, Kxg6; 32. Qg4+, Kh6(h7); 33. Rh3#.
   May-07-18 S Maroroa vs J Wilson, 2008 (replies)
zb2cr: It's not until you see the fork of the Rooks that wins the exchange that it really become plain. It is Monday-level, because it's all forced. 29. Nxg6+, hxg6; 30. Qh4+, Bh6; 31. Qxh6+, Qh7; 32. Qxh7+, Kxh7; 33. Nxf6+, Kg7; 34. Nxe8, Rxe8. White has R+2P vs B with a straightforward ...
   May-02-18 Reti vs Breyer, 1913 (replies)
zb2cr: Missed this one.
   May-01-18 J Moreby vs P Roberson, 2017 (replies)
zb2cr: 35. ... Qxg3+ wins a Rook, as if 36. gxh3 it is mate in 2 after 36. ... Rxh1+; 37. Kg2(or f2), R8h2#. White must therefore play one of 36. Kf1, 36. Qg2, which let Black get away a Rook up. 36. Bg2, Rxh2 threatens mate by 37. ... Rh1#, and White doesn't seem to have a good defense.
   Apr-30-18 R Vidruska vs O Badelka, 2017 (replies)
zb2cr: Mate in 3 follows 32 ... Qxg1.
   Apr-24-18 M Bartel vs A Belezky, 2008 (replies)
zb2cr: To <Cucurbit>: <chrisowen> does his own weird stream-of-consciousness wall of words. None of his comments have ever made any rational sense, but he seems harmless.
   Apr-23-18 T Goutali vs L Pan Zhang, 2008 (replies)
zb2cr: A little more complicated than the typical Monday. 29. ... Rxg2+; 30. Kxg2, d4+. Now all White's choices are bad. 31. Kg1, Qf2#. 31. Kh2, Rh8+; 32. Kg1, Rh1#. 31. Re4, Qxe5 and 31. Qe4, Bxe4+ both lose the Queen.
   Apr-18-18 Svidler vs Kramnik, 1999 (replies)
zb2cr: Looks like 30. Qxh5+, gxh5; 31. Bd3+, f5; 32. Bxf5+, Kh6 sets Black up for the final big blow: 33. Bg7#.
