Eduardo Leon: Too famous to be a good puzzle.
   Aug-14-19 Shabalov vs J Aagaard, 1999 (replies)
Eduardo Leon: This problem was easy enough that I could solve it <twice> in less than three minutes, once incorrectly, and then once correctly. First the incorrect solution: <45...e3?> And white either loses the queen or get mated, right? Okay, no. <46.♖gxg7+ ♔h8
   Jan-10-19 Bologan vs M Hansen, 2011 (replies)
Eduardo Leon: I'm seriously out of practice. The first couple moves were kind of obvious: <34.♖xd5 cxd5 35. ♘b6+ ♔d8> Here I spent a couple minutes trying to figure out how white's remaining rook should infiltrate through the “d” file. This was the position in my ...
   Dec-21-18 S Knight vs V Georgiev, 2008 (replies)
Eduardo Leon: Not that difficult. <20.♕c4+ ♔f6 21.♖e6+ ♔xf5> 21...♖xe6 22.♕xe6# <22.d5!> Black cannot simultaneously stop both threats 23.♕f4# and 23.♕e4#.
   Jul-18-18 Botvinnik vs G A Thomas, 1936 (replies)
Eduardo Leon: <Jim Bartle: In his book he (Tal) says he took particular pleasure in defeating in a tough endgame a player (can't remember who) who'd said something along the lines of "Tal is an excellent GM in the opening, a brilliant GM in the middlegame, and an ordinary GM in the ...
   May-11-18 B Hayden vs W A Winser, 1948 (replies)
Eduardo Leon: <ChessHigherCat> <gofer> My bad! I saw that white would win at least the exchange, and abruptly stopped thinking.
   Feb-08-18 Csom vs Yusupov, 1982 (replies)
Eduardo Leon: The pawns bulldozed their way through. Not difficult to see, but still beautiful.
   Jan-05-18 Keres vs C N Barnes, 1975 (replies)
Eduardo Leon: <ChessHigherCat> Just like the knight isn't on e2 anymore, the rook isn't on e1 anymore.
   Dec-29-17 C Garcia Palermo vs C Herrera, 2001 (replies)
Eduardo Leon: Hardly “difficult”. I saw it in less than 2 minutes: <38.♘f5 exf5> Not capturing is even worse: 38...♔g8 39.♕xh6 or 38...♔f6 39.♘d6+. <39.♖g3+ ♔h7> Or else 39.♕h6#. <40.♕xf5+> And mate in two more moves.
   Aug-03-17 Carlsen vs Karjakin, 2017 (replies)
Eduardo Leon: Black's knight is like a sexual minority: it's looking for a safe space.
