   Jul-06-17 P Jowett vs J McBride, 2007 (replies)
Chess Dad: @Breunor: I'd suspect that the reason for 20. Kd1 is that he didn't fully investigate Bxh6 until Black forced the issue with cxd4.
   Aug-10-16 H Seifert vs M Szmyd, 2009 (replies)
Chess Dad: One of my few weeks starting 3 for 3. I'm starting to consider moves that I wouldn't consider OTB when it's a puzzle. But in this case, with two pieces under attack, OTB I'd likely trade off rooks on h8 and then move Nc3. I'd never consider putting a third piece where it can be ...

Chess Dad: <Boster: and after Kh2 Rc1 pinning the white rook. > Instead of Kh2, why not simply take at g2? I tried to understand that, so I looked at the game, and I realized that g2 was a *white* pawn. Too bad you can't take your own pieces. :>)
   Aug-02-16 V Stepovoj vs E Chasovnikova, 1996 (replies)
Chess Dad: <Pawn Slayer: In the final position, almost any sensible move wins (Be5+ is crushing but a bit slower than the line played)> Yep, that was the line that held my interest. But after seeing the Rxh7+ line, I count myself as missing the problem. I found a really good move, ...
   Aug-01-16 V Vepkhvishvili vs Davtian, 1966 (replies)
Chess Dad: This was very easy, even for a Monday, although I didn't get the game continuation, I got the "other" mate in two. And after finding mate-in-two, I didn't even look for another.
   Jul-25-16 Khachiyan vs Robson, 2006 (replies)
Chess Dad: I was looking to win a piece, not exchange rooks and win a pawn. Null points.
   Jul-20-16 Timoshenko vs R Verdes Nadal, 2006 (replies)
Chess Dad: <YetAnotherAmateur: 14. Nf7+, winning the queen and the game.> After 14.Nf7+ Kg8, yes, the queen can be taken, and you'll probably win the game. But smothered mate is quicker, and is only mate in three. 15. Nh6++ Kh8 [Kf8 16. Qf7#] 16. Qg8+ Rxg8 17. Nf7#. I missed it also. ...
   Jul-19-16 R W Schutt vs P Hickey, 1966 (replies)
Chess Dad: <Phoni Benoni: and scored a point over the board. But since I botched the analysis, I can't take a point for solving the puzzle.> I'm not as hard on myself, but I'm not as good. If I get the right move, but miss a completely useless interposition (such as 24... Qa5 in ...
   Jun-30-16 E Mitrev vs I Vladimirov, 2009 (replies)
Chess Dad: <<Plang>: <It is possible that the difference between 2.5P and 2.3P is not statistically significant?> It depends on who's playing. Weak players like me make mistakes a whole lot bigger than missing the optimal move and instead choosing one 0.2P weaker than ...
   May-17-16 H Heinicke vs P A Seitz, 1934 (replies)
Chess Dad: I don't know why I got this easily today. I just didn't know if there was something better than winning one of two bishops. I couldn't see anything promising, but that's always the case later on in the week, and for too many Tuesdays lately.
