   Dec-14-18 Kasparov vs A Vilaisarn, 2008 (replies)
Diocletian: My line fails in the end but is more interesting and more brilliant than Kasparov's: 19. Nxe6 Bxe6 20. Nxf5 Bf8 21. Qh5 g6 22. Nd6+ Qxd6 23. Bd6+ hxg6 24. Qxh8 Qxa3.

   Oct-16-18 Warren Harper
Diocletian: Harper is coauthor with Lucas Anderson of the excellent "The Life and Chess of...." For example, The Life and Chess of Aron Nimzowitsch,
   Aug-23-18 N Arora vs B Samhouri, 2008 (replies)
Diocletian: I blundered: 32...Rd1+. It's disheartening to miss a puzzle so elementary.
