   May-23-11 Kiss vs G Barcza, 1934 (replies)
 
Operation Mindcrime: This game appears in Fred Reinfeld's "Great Short Games of the Chess Masters", but white is listed as "Amateur", which isn't quite as romantic as "Kiss" :-) Good mate at the end.

Operation Mindcrime: Interesting game, to say the least. Unusual opening choice for Black with 2...♘c6, which is playable but rather out of fashion. Nice middle-game battle with some sharp tactics that I need to still figure out at leisure. I thought White's pawn-storm on the ...

Operation Mindcrime: Good one, though it took me a little time to calculate it to the end. The idea of a ♖ sacrifice followed by mate with the ♕ is fairly common on the king-side (with ♖h1 being the key), but this was an interesting variation. The bishop at g7 helps deliver
 
   Feb-21-11 A E Post vs F J Lee, 1905 (replies)
 
Operation Mindcrime: Nice one. The position of the white knights (and the defence of the e8-square by the White ♖) made me think of a smothered mate, but it took me a while to figure it out entirely.
 
   Feb-14-11 J Hart vs Silman, 1991 (replies)
 
Operation Mindcrime: Very nice finish with ♘xa2! Interesting final position for the unfortunate white ♕ - White overextended himself in this game and paid the price for it.
 
   Feb-14-11 R Knaak vs V Zilberstein, 1979
 
Operation Mindcrime: There's an interesting story about this game narrated by Leonard Barden. If I remember it correctly, the game was being adjourned after White's 41st move, with Knaak somewhat behind on material (a ♖ and ♗ to Black's ♕ and two ♙s) but with a good ...

Operation Mindcrime: SMS speak. I'm a purist that way...
 
   Aug-11-09 W M Popert vs Cochrane, 1841 (replies)
 
Operation Mindcrime: Got it almost immediately, but it's an unusual mating position that I haven't seen before myself. Nice puzzle. White played a little too eccentrically, and paid the penalty.
 
   Mar-03-09 Kolisch vs Loyd, 1867 (replies)
 
Operation Mindcrime: Easy and nice theme here. ♕xg6!! opens the h-file, after which the quiet ♖f3! leaves Black helpless against ♖h3#. All he can do to postpone mate is a few spite moves...
 
   Mar-02-09 N Sakr vs Ali Atwi, 2001 (replies)
 
Operation Mindcrime: Nice puzzle. I saw the ♕xc8! idea immediately, but it took me some time to see the deflection ♖h8+!!, which forces a knight fork and leaves white a ♘ ahead.
