   Jun-20-17 Timman vs J Smeets, 2007 (replies)
zb2cr: Satisfying little combination. 43. ... Rxd2+; 44. Kxd2, b2 and it seems Black can Queen easily, as 45. Kc2 fails against the fork 45. ... Nb4+, and 45. Rb6, Nxb6; 47. axb6, b1=Q and it's over. However, it's not the end of the story, as pointed out by several posters, including <al ...
   Jun-12-17 Prince Dadian vs Doubrava, 1896 (replies)
zb2cr: A trap in the opening, which Black fell into. 5. Bxf7+ presents Black with several choices, all bad. a. 5. ... Kf8 is probably best, but White can just withdraw his Bishop and remain up by a Pawn with Black having lost castling. b. 5. ... Kxf7; 6. Ng5+ and now we get the other ...
   Jun-06-17 Areshchenko vs A Rustemov, 2014 (replies)
zb2cr: There are just too many good ideas here! Qxd6, Rxd6 followed b7y Nf5 forking the Rooks to win the exchange. Or Re8+ to remove the guard on the Queen. The latter is better.
   Jun-05-17 R Hess vs E Sevillano, 2006 (replies)
zb2cr: Simple, with a Monday Queen sacrifice. 35. ... Qg2+; 36. Bxg2, R8xg2#.
   May-23-17 B Savchenko vs A Kostin, 2007 (replies)
zb2cr: 26. Qg6 does it, threatening mate by Qg7. All of Black's defensive tries are inadequate: 26. ... fxg6; 27. Ne6+, Kg8; 28. Rg7#. 26. ... Rg8; 27. Nh7#. 26. ... hxg5 doesn't address the threat, so 27. Qg7#.
   May-22-17 A Khudaya vs Yifan Hou, 2007 (replies)
zb2cr: A small removal of the guard does the trick. 22. ... Nxf3+ removes the protecting Pawn, leaving g4 vulnerable. The simplest line is 23. Rxf3, Qxg4#. A beautiful side effect of the Knight move is revealed if White plays 23. Kg3 or 23. Kh3. In that case, 23. ... Qxg4# is still mate, ...
   May-09-17 M Meinhardt vs Sasikiran, 2007 (replies)
zb2cr: The White King has no moves. In such a position, seeking a check is obvious. This leads us to looks at 30. ... Rxh3+; 31. Kh3, Rh8+. Now White must come forward to g4, where he can be dispatched by 32. ... f5#.
   May-08-17 M Jadoul vs G Plomp, 2003 (replies)
zb2cr: This is straightforward, and I saw it right away. 29. Qxg6+ is the first move of the mate in 2. It's clear that declining by 29. ... Bg7 is answered by 30. Qxg7#. The acceptance of the sacrifice with 29. ... hxg6 is answered by 30. h7#. The keys to noticing this are the Black Knight ...
   May-01-17 M Wecker vs A Petursson, 2017 (replies)
zb2cr: The White Queen is preventing mate on d1. Therefore, 10. ... Bb4+. Now, if 11. Qxb4, the White Queen has been decoyed away from her guard duties, so the d1 square is open for 11. ... Qd1#. Alternatively, if 11. Bd2, then 11. ... Qxd2#--in this scenario, the mating square has ...
   Apr-26-17 O Michaelis vs J A Leonard, 1860 (replies)
zb2cr: 19. ... Rxe5; 20. dxe5, Qd3! winning.
