   Aug-09-18 V Laznicka vs Movsesian, 2007 (replies)
zb2cr: Remembered from prior appearance. Mate in two with 32. Qh8+, Bxh8; 33. Rxh8#.
   Aug-02-18 S Petrenko vs Chiburdanidze, 2008 (replies)
zb2cr: I remembered this one from 11 June 2018.
   Jul-31-18 Averbakh vs Kotov, 1953 (replies)
zb2cr: The only reason this could be considered "easy" is that the game is so famous. Many of us have seen it before, and remember at least 30. ... Qxh3+; 31. Kxh3, Rh6+; 32. Kg4, Nf6+ at least and that repetition of moves was available. Not all of the details of the King hunt need be ...
   Jul-23-18 L de La Fuente vs A Nesterov, 2017 (replies)
zb2cr: 31. Qxd5+ sets up several short variations, all of which lead to mate. A. 31. ... Rxd5; 32. Rf8#. B. 31. ... Kh8 gives White two ways to win. Either 32. Qxd8+, Nxd8; 33. Rf8# or 32. Rf8+, Rxf8; 33. Rxf8# work. C. 31. ... Nf7; 32. Qxf7+, Kh8; 33. Qf8+, Rxf8; 34. Rxf8#.
   Jul-18-18 Fedorov vs N Neelakantan, 1999 (replies)
zb2cr: Missed this one; did not see the correct followup to 27. Nf6+ and gave up.
   Jul-17-18 A Y Rotstein vs Y Gonzalez Vidal, 2005
zb2cr: A double reloader sacrifice, leading to a Greco's mate pattern. Sweet. And all forced, too. 33. Qxh7+, Nxh7+; 34. Rxh7+, Kxh7; 35. Rh3#.
   Jul-16-18 Naiditsch vs C Jeitz, 2016 (replies)
zb2cr: A forced mate in two, how sweet! 26. Qxh7+, Kxh7; 27.Rh3#
   Jul-11-18 J Cox vs D Guthrie, 2016 (replies)
zb2cr: The good old visualization device of the "square of the Pawn" to determine whether the Black King is able to stop the Pawn, plus the Black Knight at e6 being overworked, leads to 40. Rexe6, winning decisive material.
   Jul-10-18 Topalov vs Anand, 2016
zb2cr: 34. ... Rxf3+ does it. If White retakes with the Queen, Black plays 35. ... Qa4#. If any other move such as 35. Ka2, 35. b3, or 35. gxf3, White's Queen is hanging and Black will wind up with a comfortably winning material advantage.
   Jul-09-18 Hector vs A Gupta, 2016 (replies)
zb2cr: To avoid Black's threatened ... Rxc2+, a brisk solution is in order. White has a forced mate in two available with 43. Rxf8+, Kxf8; 44. Rd8#.
