   Jan-06-20 Tal vs Benko, 1959 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Found Rh8+. If BxR there is instant mate, while if the Black Q goes in, 31.Rxg8+ Kxg8; 32 Rxe7 (among others) will bring quick victory.
   Jan-01-20 Flohr vs I Koenig, 1929 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Got it. In addition 40.Rc7 Rxd6; 41.Rxc8+ wins a piece but is slower.
   Dec-24-19 Stahlberg vs Nimzowitsch, 1934 (replies)
AlicesKnight: From move 14 the Knight just sits there and stares with the fixing eye of the Sphinx, intimidating everything in range .......
   Dec-24-19 H Wernich vs J Mason, 1876 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Found it quickly (again; good for me - it's Christmas).
   Dec-23-19 W Paulsen vs Anderssen, 1878 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Saw it fairly quickly; an ending Anderssen would have created as white. Lack of Q-side development lost him the initiative earlier, but 28.... Rf8 is astonishing; perhaps his age (he died the following year) was telling?
   Dec-21-19 Kiril D Georgiev vs Grischuk, 2007 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Found QxR and RxN as the likely break; it seemed enough to blunt Black's counters but the continuation was less clear to me. Agree with <patzer2>.
   Dec-19-19 N Kopaev vs Alatortsev, 1938 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Found the gameline surprisingly early in the morning. Very pretty. <An Englishman> is right about the position.
   Dec-11-19 Duras vs P P Saburov, 1906 (replies)
AlicesKnight: I saw the game line, and imagined Black would refuse to take.But not much hope there either....
   Dec-02-19 Didier vs Marshall, 1900 (replies)
AlicesKnight: A Marshall looks at ...Qxc4 and licks his lips ......
   Nov-20-19 Vidmar vs Euwe, 1929 (replies)
AlicesKnight: Too well known as a puzzle, but still good to be reminded one more time. After Re8+ the only alternative to interposing is to move the K which costs Black the R and any last hope. So capture and let beauty take its course.....
