   Nov-28-18 L B Hansen vs G Vescovi, 1995 (replies)
Elrathia Kingi: 19...Kxh7 20. Ng5+ and mates: 21... Kg7 22.Qf7 then Qh7# 21... Kh8 (or Kh6) 22.Qh3+ Kg7 23.Qh7 Kf6 (or. Kf8) 24.Qf7#.
   Feb-28-18 Ftacnik vs Gotti, 1987 (replies)
Elrathia Kingi: I feel like the exact same position was a puzzle here not long ago, but I can't immediately find it. Perhaps I saw this somewhere else...
   Nov-12-17 Westerinen vs J M Boey, 1972 (replies)
Elrathia Kingi: 35.Bxf6 looks interesting. After Kxf6, 36.hxg5+ Kg6 37.Nxf4+, white has 4 pawns for the Bishop, and black will have almost no practical chances to win.
   Nov-10-17 H H Cole vs A W W Tulip, 1946 (replies)
Elrathia Kingi: Interesting game, but I wouldn't recommend this variation for white. Black went wrong with 16...Qa5 -- it wasn't necessarily a bad move (stockfish likes it), but it was a wrong idea. The correct followup was either to protect the queen by b6 or defang the pin by Nb6. Because ...
   Oct-09-17 Capablanca vs Manuel Augusto Molina, 1911 (replies)
Elrathia Kingi: 38...c2 39.Kb6 Rb8+ 40.Bxb8 c1=Q 41.Bd6, and all of the checks are covered, while white has mate on both e8 and a7. Also, the g7 pawn is a persistent threat even if all other threats are stopped.
   Jan-27-17 So vs F El Taher, 2006 (replies)
Elrathia Kingi: The option of 6...Nf2 is interesting. This is a crazy line where each of the moves for white is forced, with a difference of at least 1 between best and second best move (with the aid of my good friend Stockfish). Note that black's moves are not as forced, but this is still ...
   Nov-07-16 M Antipov vs J van Foreest, 2015 (replies)
Elrathia Kingi: 20...fxe4 seems to be the turning point. Amazingly, black is totally busted after 23.f5!! What an impressive game.
   Nov-04-16 M Ragger vs S Maze, 2016 (replies)
Elrathia Kingi: Wow, what a game. The position after 46.h7 looks like it comes out of a study: black has 2 extra pieces, but is powerless to prevent white from queening. So many interesting and powerful moves in this game. The first is 17.cxd6. Took me a while to understand, but I think that
   Nov-02-16 V Heuer vs I Rosenfeld, 1956 (replies)
Elrathia Kingi: While there were sub-optimal moves played by both, it seems like white had the edge up until 16.Qb3+. Had he chosen instead to immediately play g3, or to play O-O, white would have held the advantage. By missing the intermezzo 16...Nc5, white gave up the advantage based on ...
   Nov-01-16 I Saren vs Karpov, 1972 (replies)
Elrathia Kingi: Amazing play. Doesn't 25.Qxd6 win a second pawn? No, it loses a piece: 25.Qxd6? Qxd6 26.Rxd6 Rc5! and a knight will be lost. I am not entirely familiar with the hedgehog setups, but pushing the queenside pawns seems like a logical course of action for white. However, in ...
