   Jul-06-22 D Kryakvin vs Evgeni Kuligin, 2008 (replies)
Cellist: I gave it only a few moments and missed it (so embarrassing!). The neat thing (for Black) is that the wrong "solution" 21.Nxf6+ followed by 21... Bxf6 opens up the e-file with a potential Re1 mate.
   Jul-05-22 Khmelnitsky vs Alburt, 1996 (replies)
Cellist: <jrredfield> I also missed the mate in three and saw 25. f7+, followed by Qg5+ and a N underpromotion on e8 with check. It is totally winning (+8.3) though of course slower (but also fun). The engine gives this line: 25...Kxg7 26.Qg5+ Bg6 27.fxe8=N+ Rxe8 28.Bd5 Qe3 29.Rf7+ Kh8
   Jun-30-22 O Ulvestad vs Ed. Lasker, 1947 (replies)
Cellist: After refuting Nxe6+ and Rxf7+, I did find 28.Qh5 and saw that 28. ... gxRf4 would be disastrous for Black. But then I immediately went wrong with 29. Rxf7+ Nxf7 30. Qh7+, expecting to play Bg6 to threaten f7 or Ba3+ (if Black moves the Be7 out of the way), but all of this fails ...
   Jun-29-22 D Byrne vs G Kramer, 1954 (replies)
Cellist: I saw the first two moves quickly but then was struck by chess blindness and overlooked Qg6. I therefore wanted to play 31.e5 to open space for the white-squared bishop. This does give White an advantage (+1.61), but not a clear one.
   Jun-28-22 M Palac vs Minasian, 1997 (replies)
Cellist: I saw the Q sacrifice and mate in three but was quite sure that the moves Nxe7 and Nxd7+ also win.
   Jun-24-22 Miroshnichenko vs A Turzo, 1999 (replies)
Cellist: I saw the first move but then stumbled into less compelling (but in principle still winning) variations. I wanted to play 20. Nd5 right after 19. Rxd6. This can win, but much less clearly: +2.25 (26 ply) 20...cxd5 21.Nf6+ Kh8 22.Qf4 Bc7 23.Nxd5 Qd6 24.Nxc7 f6 25.Nxa8 Rxa8 26.h3 Bd7 ...
   Jun-23-22 L Day vs A Kafadarow, 1976 (replies)
Cellist: I also considered 29. fxg5+ for a while but was not so convinced that it was winning after 29. ... fxg5 (not Nxg5? or Kxh5??). The engine gives it just a +1.44. I then saw that removing the N on e4 and then fxg5+ opened up a lot of possibilities for attack. I calculated only up to ...
   Jun-22-22 B Finegold vs K Sorenson, 1982 (replies)
Cellist: I saw it rather quickly, with the text moves (even though they are not optimal, as others have indicated).
   Jun-21-22 Jansa vs F Nordstrom, 2006 (replies)
Cellist: I considered Bg6 and Qxg7+. Both are winning clearly (+9 or +10), and it seems not that difficult to find a winning line even if Black declines the B after Bg6. Nf5 is very elegant, and I did not see it, but I thought there were quite a few winning lines and did not look further ...
   Jun-17-22 Yusupov vs Brunner, 1990 (replies)
Cellist: I went for 29.d6 and considered it probably winning even after 29. ... fxe5 30. dxc7 Qxd1+. The white King can hide on h2, and the threatening pawn on c7 will at least win back the sacrificed material. In fact, the engine sees this line as totally winning for White (+10).
