   Apr-15-21 Van Wely vs Golubev, 1999 (replies)
 
ASchultz: @al wazir Stockfish gave me h5 Re5 and if hxg6, Kxg6 and Black can now swing the rook to f5. White has an advantage, but it's not as crushing. This isn't something I would've seen, either! I myself was worried Black could play the rooks to e6 and f6 after an immediate Kg2 and play

ASchultz: This one made me smile because I looked at Qxc6 for queen/rook sac monday but wondered if Black had any checks. Qg5 counts. Then I looked for the rook sac. Bingo!

ASchultz: I wouldn't have seen it quickly without this memorable game of Spassky's: G Andruet vs Spassky, 1988
 
   Jun-04-20 Morozevich vs H Hamdouchi, 2001 (replies)
 
ASchultz: 33. Bb4 also wins, but more slowly. Kg3 Qg6 Ng5 and now f6 and h6 don't stop Rf8#. After Bd2 Black can't get in any meaningful checks. a6 is simpler but I instinctively feel (and need to get over feeling) a bit panicky about quiet moves like that, even seeing that Black can't stop ...

ASchultz: After the game, he did not shake hands in aportsmanlike fashion, but simply intoned "I'm ... too sexy for this board" and walked away.
 
   Feb-19-20 I A Nataf vs L Roos, 2001 (replies)
 
ASchultz: Interesting and pleasing mating pattern. It seems like the knight on d6 has to do SOMETHING, but it can't do anything immediate.
 
   Jan-31-20 Predojevic vs D Andreikin, 2016 (replies)
 
ASchultz: I agree the final move is a wonderful tactic of its own. I'd also like to share that instead of ...Nxg4, Nd3! wins a pawn cleverly. Only seen thanks to my engine.

ASchultz: Re7 is just a perpetual after Rxe7 Qxe7 Kg8 Qe6+ Kh7. Qh3 is such a weird move to find because you don't think of skewering rooks usually, not with a queen--they can just guard each other, right? ...but they can't guard e6 at the same time.

ASchultz: This GotD's pun is as Ferris can be. (waits for reaction) Anybody? ... Anybody?
 
   Dec-10-19 K Treybal vs J Engel, 1932 (replies)
 
ASchultz: I liked Ne7 too (and so does Stockfish) but Nxh6 seemed more forcing, so I went with that, because I worried I might be overlooking something. I didn't see Ne7 allows ...e4, which allows Black to sac on d6. That's still losing, but not immediately. It's interesting to me to see ...
