tpstar: <Q: You know who miss President Obama the most?> This is a trick question, as you must subdivide your response into an "ironic" group and an "actual" group. A) Ironic 1) NRA 2) Iran 3) Cuba 4) Transgender bathroom sign makers 5) Every Republican running for office B) ...
 
   Feb-26-17 T Patton vs J Donaldson, 2003
 
tpstar: 25. hxg3 Qxe3+ 26. Kd1 (26. Kf1 Qe1#) Rb1+ 27. Rc1 Rxc1+ 28. Qxc1 Qe2#. White choked on that Pawn.
 
   Feb-26-17 T Kelly vs F R Anderson, 1954
 
tpstar: 22 ... Qf1+ 23. Kg3 Qe1+ 24. Rf2/Nf2 Rxa1 wins a piece. Also 22 ... Rxa1 23. Bxa1 Qa2+, and also 22 ... Rd2+. 14 ... Qc8 & 15 ... Qa6 was inventive and effective.

   Feb-26-17 J Lachaux vs G Tallaksen Ostmoe, 2000
 
tpstar: 3 ... Nxe4 is one way to avoid the sharp Blackmar-Diemer Gambit = Opening Explorer 6. f3 Bd6 7. Be3 (7. fxe4?! Qh4+) 0-0 8. Qe2 and then 8 ... exf3 so Black got in two useful developing moves. Very nice major piece endgame, patiently converted by Black.
 
   Feb-26-17 H Melkumyan vs Adams, 2015
 
tpstar: 29. Rd3! was a nice move retaining the extra Pawn - 29 ... exd3? 30. Qxe8+ Kh7 31. Rc8 forces 31 ... Qxc8 (otherwise 32. Qh8#) 32. Qxc8, then 32 ... d2 33. Qc2 Rd4 34. Qd1 wins. 50 ... Qxb4 (50 ... f5? 51. Qg5+ & 52. Qxf5+ & 53. Qxe4) 51. Qxe4+ Qxe4 52. fxe4 Kh5 53. e5 is a won K&P ...
 
   Feb-25-17 O Korneev vs P Simacek, 2007
 
tpstar: Interesting how White consolidated the Queenside by trading on e5 (19. Bxe5) followed by 20. Bc4 & 21. Nd3. 26. Rxh6!! was a brilliant shot, with 31. Qc6 as a fine coupe de grace which White must have seen all along. The Pb4 will soon be lost, leading to a N v B ending with White ...
 
   Feb-25-17 A Riazantsev vs Jakovenko, 2017
 
tpstar: 20. f4 Qg4+ wins the Rd1. <The opening is in fact a Caro-Kann by transposition, specifically the Caro-Kann Defense: Panov Attack. Modern Defense Mieses Line.> Opening Explorer
 
   Feb-24-17 W Mack vs H Brynjarsson, 2011
 
tpstar: Straight Gangsta Mack
 
   Feb-24-17 Matt B Zavortink vs W So, 2017
 
tpstar: Black won material after Removing the Guard 25 ... Rxc2! 26. Qxc2 Nxe3 and after the White Queen moves then 27 ... Nxf1 wins the exchange, leaving Black up a piece. The London System is all the rage!
