   Dec-10-18 Tal vs A S Segal, 1952 (replies)
zb2cr: 29. Rxd7, Rxd7; 30. Ne6+ forks the Queen. White will finish up by Q vs. R+P. An easy win for a tactician of Tal's talent.
   Dec-06-18 S Slipak vs T Gibson, 2008 (replies)
zb2cr: To <saturn2>: White is two Pawns plus.
   Dec-04-18 Balashov vs Jansa, 2017 (replies)
zb2cr: 39. ... Qxf3+; 40. Rxf3(forced), Re1+; 41. Kg2, Rg1# is the main line. White can prolong the agony by one move with the worthless interposition 41. Rf1, Rxf1+; 42. Kg2, Rg1#. I wonder if Black announced mate in 4?
   Nov-27-18 M Baldauf vs D Andreikin, 2016 (replies)
zb2cr: I went with 34. ... Nf2+, which wins the exchange after 35. Rxf2, Qxc1+.
   Nov-26-18 Carlsen - Caruana World Championship Match (2018) (replies)
zb2cr: And now we get to see if Caruana really does have some super-duper opening preparation saved up for the purpose of winning one point. Now is the time, if ever there was a time, for him to use it if he has it.
   Nov-26-18 B Bok vs Lahno, 2015 (replies)
zb2cr: To <paavoh>: Except Qf8+ isn't mate, the King has h7. Black gets lost because of 29. ... Ra8; 30. Qf8+, Kh7; 31. Ng5+, Qxg5(forced) and the material deficit is too much.
   Nov-26-18 J Carstensen vs Shkelqim Cela, 2008 (replies)
zb2cr: White's weak back rank betrays him: 37. ... Qxe1+; 38. Bxe1, Rxe1+; 39. Qd1, Rxd1#. The other Black Rook on h7 and the Bishop on d5 covering the escape squares are the enablers.
   Nov-22-18 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2018 (replies)
zb2cr: TO <RandomVistor>, Great, thanks for the explanation.
   Nov-22-18 Wang Hao vs R Gerber, 2016 (replies)
zb2cr: Right at the limit of my calculation ability. I decided on 21. Bxg6, fxg6; 22. Qxg6, Bf7. This looked like the strongest Black defensive try to me. White can then play 23. Rh8+, Kxh8; 24. Qxf7. Some variations: A. 24. ... Ne8??; 25. Rh1#. B. 24. ... Nh5; 25.Bxg7+. B1. 25 ... Nxg7; ...
   Nov-21-18 A Stukopin vs B Hasenohr, 2008 (replies)
zb2cr: Okay, so 24. Qxh7+, Nxh7; 25. Nf6 puts Black in an impossible position. If he plays 25. ... Rg7??, White has a "Rook reloader" in 26. Rah1, which leads to obvious mate. So it looks as though Black must submit to playing 25 ... Kg7; 26. Rxh7+, Kf8 when the second point of the ...
