A former class A player almost 20 years ago, I'm returning to chess as a hobby in retirement. Spending more time studying end games and middle games than openings now. I may try playing in tournaments again later, but for now I like the challenge of analyzing and trying to understand the subtlties of strong Master games.

patzer2: There's more than one win in today's (30. ?) Thursday puzzle. My attempt was 30. R1e6! fxe6 31. f7!, which according to Fritz 12 wins after 31...Nf6 (diagram below) [DIAGRAM] 32. Rxe6! Qc7 33. Bxf6 Qxf7 34. Qe3! (+2.73 @ 20 ...

patzer2: If 25...Kb8, then 26. Rxb7+ Ka8 27. e6 is clearly decisive, as play might continue 27...Re8 (27... Rb8 28. Rxb8+ Kxb8 29. Qf8+ Kc7 30. Qe7+ Kc8 31. Qd7+ Kb8 32. Qb7#) 28. Ra7+ Kb8 (28... Kxa7 29. Qf7+ Kb6 30. Qb7+ Ka5 31. b4+

patzer2: <ocker: To justify 16 Nb5 you have to see through to 22 Rc6.> Or, like me, realize you were lucky to have 22. Rc6! available after being surprised by 21...Rad8.
   Oct-23-14 G Benini vs Reggio, 1911 (replies)
patzer2: My solution for today's Thursday puzzle was 30. Rxc8+! 30. Rxc8+ Rxc8 31. Rh8+ Kxh8 32. Qh3+ Kg8 33. Qxc8+ Rf8 34. Qe6+ Kh8 35. Qh3+ Kg8 36. Qh7#. According to Fritz 12, both 30. Rxc8+! and 30. Rh8+! lead to mate-in-eight. Perhaps it's nitpicking, but 30. Rh8+! is technically more ...

patzer2: <Nightsurfer> Your idea <34.Bxg5 hxg5 35.Qxg5 Rd6 36. f6 > wins due to the immediate threat 37. Qg7+! After 35...Rd6 36. f6, Fritz 12 @ 20 depth gives best play as 36...Rd8 37. Qg7+ Qxg7 38. fxg7+ Kh7 39. Nf6+ Kh6 ...

patzer2: Since it's Monday and we're looking at an easy mate in this game, and the strong moves leading up to it. I thought I'd share a strong move leading to an unusual mate-in-one from some computer analysis of this game. Looking at the try 15...f6 (instead of 15...Nd7), I played Black ...
