   Apr-07-09 J Mieses vs Breyer, 1914 (replies)
 
Frankly: What seemed simpler, and also appears to win as well, was ...Rd2 33. Rc2 (forced); Rxc2+ and then Kxc2 (lest rook for queen) and then Qxc3+, after which mate too. Anything wrong with that?
 
   Mar-05-09 Steinitz vs Schlechter, 1898 (replies)
 
Frankly: Is there any difference between Rd6 Qe6 and Rf6 Qe6? If not, then I'm content. If there is, please explain why Rf6 works but Rd6 not.
 
   Mar-03-09 Kolisch vs Loyd, 1867 (replies)
 
Frankly: This was definitely much easier than yesterday. But who would, in an important game, not have spent at least 10 minutes just making sure there was no escape from Rf3 before throwing away the Queen?
 
   Feb-25-09 J Mason vs Teichmann, 1894 (replies)
 
Frankly: My line started ...Qd3 24. Bd1 or Bb3. Thereafter in all continuations I could see, Black gained an advantage, but I was sure this could not be what was intended by the puzzle as 'the solution' merely because Qd3 looks pretty because BxQ would be daft.
 
   Jan-21-09 Kaidanov vs Anand, 1987 (replies)
 
Frankly: I seldom brag about 'nanoseconds' (mainly because it's daft, and also, to be honest, because seldom true for me). But this was true nanosecond stuff, for two reasons: the Queen sac on f7 looked like a puzzle solution, was in fact crying out to be a puzzle solution, and the forced ...
 
   Oct-03-08 G Forintos vs V Tomovic, 1957 (replies)
 
Frankly: Yeah, ok, guys, *blush*, better to work it out properly first than to post the question too precipitately! Apologies for 37 Bxg6
 
   Sep-29-08 A Planinc vs K Hulak, 1977 (replies)
 
Frankly: As often in these puzzles, I am left wondering whether White actually played 55.Rxe1, or whether it was just included in the score (official or Chessgames.com version) to complete the mate. 1977 is a bit late for the gentleman's method of allowing the opponent to play out his pretty
 
   Sep-16-08 Leko vs Radjabov, 2006 (replies)
 
Frankly: The wild goose chase with Kh5 or Kf5 ate up 30 minutes of my time, and then I even tried things like Qa8, which also does not work, and gave up. For some reason, I discarded the Nf6 line after not really pursuing it even a tenth as zealously as the Rxh7 lines. I suppose it's got ...
 
   Sep-10-08 Petrosian vs A Matanovic, 1959 (replies)
 
Frankly: Well, it seems I should feel okay about it. I settled on Nb6, although I did not 'see' the whole (unforced) line played in the game. Nb6 appeared to give the best advantage of all moves. Nice exercise for "find the best move for White", since it's not all bash, boom, bang. But, as I
 
   Sep-09-08 I Rogers vs R Kuijf, 1989 (replies)
 
Frankly: I must say, I prefer all continuations in the Nxf6 line for White. Black either gets mated, or loses lots of material, or ends up looking very bad, whereas the game continuation, yes with a pretty temporary Queen sac, gives White the exchange in a depleted game that might well end ...
