   Feb-16-21 A Grosar vs Jirovsky, 1991
Black Vampire: I agree with many members here: this puzzle is rather difficult for a Tuesday, even though that's not a reason to fail! Of course, 25.Nxg6 is a candidate move but in no way the continuation is trivial.
   Jan-29-21 Firouzja vs Caruana, 2021 (replies)
Black Vampire: Has anybody thought about 18...♘xg2! ?
   Nov-26-20 J Mieses vs Reshevsky, 1935 (replies)
Black Vampire: <Gaito: This game was mentioned in the recent movie "The Queen's Gambit" (Netflix, October, 2020)> Precisely, but there a rook lands on White's first row at the end, which seemingly doesn't happen here, does it?
   Apr-24-20 P Popovic vs Z Kozul, 1989
Black Vampire: For the good of Zdenko, Popovic didn´t see 37.Qc6+!! 1-0. 37.d8N+ is undoubtedly eye-catching, but it was a losing move.
   Apr-07-20 A Caoili vs C Rodriguez Monteiro, 1996
Black Vampire: I know personally the player with the black pieces and he states the last move was actually 26...Nxf2#
   Feb-27-18 Petrosian vs P M Nielsen, 1960 (replies)
Black Vampire: It´s curious that in a game from the Nimzovich Memorial Tournament Petrosian doesn´t employ Nimzovich´s Triangle, but the Saragossian one!!
   May-28-17 Kasparov vs Tal, 1988
Black Vampire: Aspirator, what after 37...f6!?. Now 38.f3 fails due to 38...f5!! I think Garry did it well. He just couldn´t win the pawn endgame.
   Jan-16-13 Lasker vs Burn, 1889 (replies)
Black Vampire: Hey, guys, am I wrong or the order is just the opposite? I mean, Lasker (White) vs Burn is the right game. I request to change it.
   Aug-17-12 Morozevich vs Jakovenko, 2006 (replies)
Black Vampire: <geniokov> Unfortunately, given the fact the ending K+Q vs K+R is a mathematical win for the strong side, there´s no useful golden rule for the weak side, except at certain stalemate positions, such as the one which happened in the game.
   Mar-01-10 Watson vs Ciric, 1991 (replies)
Black Vampire: This is a message for As many kibitzers have said, 40.Ka5!! draws (my engine Glaurung 2.1 agrees this move draws mathematically), so this puzzle is 'ill-solved'. I mean that White played badly and the correct solution forces a perpetual check by Black, ...
