   Feb-06-21 Beim vs Schmittdiel, 2002 (replies)
Checker2: Extraordinary that at move 11, white has no fewer than 6 checks to evaluate.
   Sep-18-19 K Georgiev vs Shirov, 1992 (replies)
Checker2: The bishop always stays on its own colour, but it can and sometimes should change the colour of the rook it is blocking.
   May-09-19 Acs vs R Szuhanek, 1999 (replies)
Checker2: Well the game was a longer mate than necessary, so my check, check, check, check, check, check, check, mate should be just as valid, even though it in turn is longer than the game's solution: 24.Qg8+ Bf8 25.Rxe6+ fxe6 26.Qxe6+ Be7 (Ne7 hangs queen) 27. Qg8+ Bf8 28. Qg6+ Ke7 29. ...
   Jul-20-17 Nakamura vs R Bellin, 2016 (replies)
Checker2: Strange week. I missed Monday's puzzle completely, found Wednesday's easy and today I saw the first two moves of the solution in a flash.
   Nov-21-16 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2016 (replies)
Checker2: Ne7+ only when the queen is not covering that square.
   Nov-18-16 Hebden vs F Felecan, 1993 (replies)
Checker2: I was getting excited about 18. Qxb5 and mating on g8 until I evaluated black's checks and queen captures.
   Sep-02-16 Van Wely vs T Beerdsen, 2015 (replies)
Checker2: Interesting tactics. As usual Fridays, I didn't get it. <Cheapo Why not 26. . . Qxf5?> I guess 27. b6 might win the a pawn, creating a passer. I doubt black could defend the a pawn with 27 . . cb 28. Qxb6 Ra9 29. Rc7 Rxc7 30. Qxc7 and the bishop is loose, and needed to ...
   Jul-07-16 K Spraggett vs Vescovi, 2004 (replies)
Checker2: I too thought Bh6 did it, but had the right idea with Qg3+.
   Jun-29-16 J Pyrowicz vs A Latocha, 2009 (replies)
Checker2: Got it, except the interesting C.1.b) above. Why not 15 ... Bxf3? With the trade happening anyways 2 bishops moves later and the black knight getting to f4 on the powerful queen's diagonal, why didn't black disrupt the kingside pawns?
   Jun-06-16 J Runnby vs H Englund, 1980 (replies)
Checker2: It took me too long to see why the knight could not be captured 15. de5? loses to mating Qa6+. Englund gave white pins and needles!
