   Jul-17-17 Flohr vs Bogoljubov, 1931 (replies)
zb2cr: 40. ... R8g3 threatening mate by ... Rh3. If White plays 41. fxg3, Nxg3#. Otherwise, as <Phony Benoni> said, all White has is meaningless spite checks with his Rooks.
   Jul-10-17 I Pleci vs L Endzelins, 1939 (replies)
zb2cr: Unusually for a Monday puzzle, there is no sacrifice needed to setup the mate in two. Just 21. h5+, Kh6; 22. Nf7#.
   Jul-03-17 J Montezinos vs Euwe, 1927 (replies)
zb2cr: Thought process: White's King has just one escape square: f4. So, if we could somehow deliver a check that came through that square... But White's Queen takes...But since White's Queen is guarding a potential mate at g4, that allows Black to play ... Qg4#!

zb2cr: zb2cr: 44. Rxg7+, Kxg7; 45. Rg1+ looks good. If 45. ... Kf6; 46. Qg6#. So, Black plays 45. ... Kf8; 46. Qh8+, Kf7. And now 47. Qg8+ chases him to f6 anyway!
   Jun-27-17 G Chandler vs E Gilliand, 1981 (replies)
zb2cr: 11. Qxf6 leads to a quick mate if accepted: 11. ... gxf6; 12. Nxf6+, Kf8; 13. Bh6#. If the Queen is declined, Black still has problems due to the triple attack on the N on e7.
   Jun-26-17 I Bukavshin vs E Inarkiev, 2015 (replies)
zb2cr: Simple. 41. Nf6+. Black has the choice of the immediate, obvious loss by 41. .. Qxf6; 42. exf6 or the slightly delayed loss with 41. ... Kf8; 42. Rh8+, Bxh8; 43. Qg8#.
   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#.
