   Oct-15-18 A Karayev vs A J Datu, 2008 (replies)
zb2cr: I went with 23. Nxf5.
   Oct-08-18 K Cottrell vs Lenderman, 2006 (replies)
zb2cr: 19. ... Rh1+; 20. Kxh1, Nxf2+ and Black has won the Queen for a Rook.
   Oct-01-18 Chandler vs Y Gruenfeld, 1979 (replies)
zb2cr: A little more involved than the typical Monday puzzle. 28. ... Bg1! threatens mate by ... Rh2. The White King can't run and can't take the offending Bishop. So White is forced to play 29. Rxg1. Now the second point in Black's combination comes out: 29. ... Rh2+. Now White has two ...
   Sep-25-18 I Stavrianakis vs U Weber, 2008 (replies)
zb2cr: Very straightforward. 42. Rxh7+ starts things. The main line is 42. ... Kxh7; 43. Qxg6+, Kh8; 44. Rh1+, Rh3; 45. Rxh3+, Qxh3; 46. Nxh3 and White wins on the basis of being ahead by Q+2N vs. R+P.
   Sep-24-18 Radjabov vs Morozevich, 2008 (replies)
zb2cr: 64. Rc6+ can only be met by 64. ... bxc6. White then plays 65. Qa6#. Although, as noted by <goldfarbdj> and <al wazir>, other mating nets can be constructed, they all take a bit longer.
   Sep-18-18 Kotronias vs D King, 1990 (replies)
zb2cr: Thought I remembered this one. 26. Qh6! threatens Qxg7#. There are two White minor pieces supporting the threatened mate, and Black can only remove one of them. So that's out. The obvious 26. ... gxh6 is answered by 27. Nxh6#. Black has a spite check but after 26. ... Qf1+; 27. Rxf1 ...
   Sep-17-18 Unzicker vs Tal, 1975 (replies)
zb2cr: 32. Qxe5+, Kxe5; 33. Bf4+ wins back the sacrificed Queen and White remains up by B+3P in a very simplified position. An easy win.
   Sep-14-18 I Chirila vs I K Sukandar, 2017 (replies)
zb2cr: Instead of 30. Nf6+, I went with 30. Rxf8+, Kxf8 ( 30. ... Rxf8; 31. Qxg7#); 31. Qxg7+, Ke8; 32. Nd6+, Kd8; 33. Bf6# and was quite proud of myself. Until I was deflated by seeing the actual game line of 30. Nf6+, which leads to mate much earlier.
   Sep-10-18 R Safar vs I Agrest, 2008 (replies)
zb2cr: 26. ... Rxh3+; 27. gxh3, Qxh3#. So, mate in two.
   Aug-23-18 N Arora vs B Samhouri, 2008
zb2cr: Repeat my comments from when this was a Monday puzzle on 2 Jul 2018.
