   Apr-08-22 P Troeger vs Tal, 1960
ClassZPlaya: scored 42 ... I had a lot of difficulties in the opening as I don't play the Dutch. The 8. ... Be7 and 9. ... d6 plan did not see very "Tal-like" to me so I tried 8. ... b6
   Apr-04-22 E Ubiennykh vs O Girya, 2012 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: 30. Rb7!! ... amazing move
   Mar-06-22 Kholmov vs I Polgar, 1979 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: Solved the puzzle, but my favorite move in this game comes later: 21 ... Bc1 paralyzing White's Knight and Rook.
   Jan-24-22 A H Robbins vs Showalter, 1890 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: Was wondering exactly where White went astray in the opening and seems to me that 13. f3 is the problem. 13. Bf3 exf2+ 14.Kf1 seems to hold everything together. Black is better and more actively developed but White has much better pawn structure and might be able to win the f2 ...
   Sep-07-21 B Lalic vs Kengis, 1997 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: <Brenin>: I was also looking at that possible line, but I was thinking that after 18 ... Bxf4 19. Rxd7 Bd5 seems to hold onto the extra piece.
   Jul-26-21 Xiong vs So, 2017 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: After 21. ... Nxf2 I would have tried 22. Nxa6 Nxe4 23. Nxc5 Nxc5 24. Rxc4 Na6 25. c7 Rbc8 26. Rac1 and with 2 passed pawns for the Knight I think White has good chances to hold the game.
   May-06-21 Pruijssers vs Cuenca Jimenez, 2014 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: Not that it should ultimately change the result but I don't understand why White didn't try 23. e6! instead of 23. Qh5 in the game continuation. If 23. e6 Qxd6 24. Qxc6 is still fighting and 24. Qd8 allows 24. ... exf7. If White is not planning to make use of this resource then ...
   Feb-22-21 Zilberman vs Sutovsky, 1994 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: Only gave myself partial credit today as I came up with 27 ... Rd1+; 28. Rxd1 Qxc6; 29. f3 Qxf3 missing 30. Qb8+ Kg7; 31. Bh6+ Kxh6; 32. Qf4+
   Dec-13-19 J Klinger vs 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 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.
