   Jun-29-17 Hebden vs A Madan, 2007 (replies)
Brapp: Madan persisted long enough being down material. Why was this the time to concede? 53...Rh5+ 54. Kb1 Rh7 and the game continues. Still a lost position though.
   Apr-04-17 M Orfali vs M Senlle Caride, 2007 (replies)
Brapp: I must say that given all the forces bearing down on white's King, I was expecting a stronger result than winning an exchange. Of course that should be enough to see out this fairly open endgame
   Apr-11-08 J L Arnason vs Nunn, 1990 (replies)
Brapp: What if (continuation) 26...Bf6?
   Aug-24-07 F Olafsson vs Unzicker, 1970 (replies)
Brapp: On more difficult puzzles, I can usually find a move that leads to interesting play that is often the answer to the puzzle. However, I don't have the skills to search through the continuations in my brain before I make the first move. I'm glad I have this intuition, but I fear it will
   Aug-09-07 Degraeve vs J P Boudre, 1987 (replies)
Brapp: Well, the knight appears extremely dangerous for move 18. First off, the knight is under attack, provoking a move. Secondly, the Knight has access to THREE squares forking heavy pieces. Have I ever seen such a well positioned knight? or such an unfortunately arrayed defense? Start ...
   May-16-07 Korchnoi vs A Petersons, 1965 (replies)
Brapp: I agree - Monday's puzzle gave me more fits than this one. In Monday's puzzle the position was just so darn complex. There really isn't that much to look at in this one. The key is to see that after Rg7 the King cannot flee to the 6th file because the knight guards those squares.
   Apr-30-07 J Emms vs A Blees, 1996 (replies)
Brapp: What should black have played instead of 28...Qd4 ? This was a nice puzzle. I like Monday puzzles, because they train me to look all the time for a mate, regardless of whether I have to sac the queen to get there. I undoubtedly miss mates just because I'm not trained to look at ...
   Apr-19-07 Khalifman vs Seirawan, 1991 (replies)
Brapp: I got a Thursday, which is pretty good for me. A simple removing of the guard.
   Apr-09-07 Lasker vs Reti, 1924 (replies)
Brapp: Very nice ending! Would be a lovely Tuesday-Wednesday puzzle starting from 30.? White exchanges a pawn for a rook.
   Apr-09-07 H Hamdouchi vs A Simutowe, 2001 (replies)
Brapp: <playground player> If 19...Be6, then 20. RxBe5 and black cannot prevent mate by 21.Qg7#
