   Dec-13-19 J Klinger vs W Arencibia Rodriguez, 1986 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: 32. Rc3 looks so good on the surface - it almost wins a Queen by force. Looking deeper it loses by force! 32. Bxh4 Rg8+ 33. Bg3 Rg4 34. Rc3 Qxd4 35. Qc2 Qd2+ 36. Qxd2 Bxd2 leaves Black with a small edge but I think White should be able to hold this.
   Dec-06-19 B D Deac vs N Berry, 2017 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: Found 24. Qxd5 for White very quickly, but Black need not lose so much material as in the game: 24. Qxd5 Qxd5 25. Rxd5 Ree8 escapes with the loss of just a pawn, although White should have good winning chances.
   Dec-02-19 Didier vs Marshall, 1900 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: Nice gem by Marshall. White needed to trade Queens at move 23 .. after 23 Qg5 f3! White appears to be lost.
   Oct-31-19 Short vs H Melkumyan, 2015 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: I chose 45. ... Rd7 which also wins, but is not the best move.
   Jul-20-18 Flohr vs Capablanca, 1936 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: Found the main line and solved the puzzle, but I was impressed by how much play Black had left in the position. Flohr needed to continually play accurately to bring home the win.
   May-22-18 Teichmann vs Chigorin, 1905 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: <Dubitando> In your line 23. Rf8 is not mate; Black has 23. ... Bxf8 <Ilkka Salonen> on 21. .. Kg8 White has 22. Bd1! threatening 23. Bb3+ The only defense appears to be 22. ... Re3 24. Bxe3 Kg7 when Black is down a Rook instead of a Bishop as in the game line.
   Aug-16-17 de Firmian vs Huebner, 1995 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: After 20. Rg3 Kh8 21. Qh6 I overlooked that if 21. ... Nxf6 22. Rxh7 mates because the Nf6 is pinned. Gave myself half credit for seeing the rest of the relevant lines.
   Apr-11-16 Fischer vs Pachman, 1959 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: @Howard ... since it is White to move in the final position, Kevin86 is likely thinking of the position after 57. Kxf3. But of course from that point Black wins with 57 ... b4! forcing a pawn through to Queen, so Fischer's resignation is understandable.
   Mar-26-15 M Muzychuk vs Koneru, 2015 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: Position after 26. ... Rf8 would make a good puzzle.
   Sep-24-14 Beliavsky vs Tarjan, 1979 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: So .. I looked at 44. Bd5 and so the whole line after 44. .. Nxd5, but couldn't find a win for White after 44 ... cxd5. I spent a lot of time on this. Then I realized that pawns don't capture backwards. ROTFLMAO
