  saffuna: Yikes!
Dec-27-18  andrewjsacks: <rogge> I echo your comment. And especially in rapids. Impressive.
Dec-28-18  offramp: I really think the World Championship's future lies in rapids. Time controls a little longer than these games, but not much more.
Dec-28-18  paavoh: Should be a Tuesday puzzle at 25.-? one day. Had to see 29. -Rg6 blocking the escape route and mating on e6.
Dec-29-18  schachfuchs: Yes, my question was: is that too difficult (or too known??) for a Monday puzzle queen sac? Condolences to Peter! ;-)

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Brilliant combination. Should become a decent end of week puzzle, since solvers would have to see the 5th move (29...Rg6) and the 6th move (30...d6 or Re6) to claim full credit.
Jan-10-19  jith1207: Let's come to a middle ground like the poor king did, and say it would be good enough for a Wednesday puzzle.
