   Oct-28-19 Sznapik vs D Komljenovic, 1987 (replies)
BwanaVa: Last week, same puzzle...right?
   Oct-16-19 Carlsen vs Ganguly, 2019 (replies)
BwanaVa: Why not 37 Rd8+(?) Doesn't this win the black queen after 37...Rxd8 38. Qxc6+
   Oct-02-19 Randy Miller vs L Statham, 1979
BwanaVa: Yes, this presumably Louis Statham of Lone Pine fame. He played correspondence for years, then began the tournament so he could see top flight chess close to home.
   Jul-26-19 S Shankland vs P Maghsoodloo, 2019 (replies)
BwanaVa: Amazing how quickly things can turn. After 17. Bc4 White was showing an advantage. Afer 17...Bb5 white shows as straight out winning (on

BwanaVa: ...and in the neatest conclusion, if 28. Rg3, then 28...Bxg2. If Rxg4, then Bh3 threatens mate on f1 and hits the rook on g4, winning either a rook or the White King.
   Feb-10-19 K Commons vs P Peev, 1976 (replies)
BwanaVa: I remember this game for the quality but also for the circumstances. Commons went to Europe to play in 3 international tournaments in the Spring/Summer of 1976, scored great results, and rocketed to IM at a time when the US did not have a lot of titled players...and US Chess was in ...
   Jan-27-19 Bradford vs Tarjan, 1978
BwanaVa: I played in that 1978 US Open, and would add one note. This was sort of Douglas Root's coming out party, and he had a performance rating in the 2500 that win over a 2219 in Round 10 was actually a big deal. This 24 month period or so was a big deal for Bradford. He scored
