   Jul-08-20 L McLaren vs A Ismail, 2017 (replies)
 
GlennOliver: Welcome back online, Chessgames. You have been greatly missed.
 
   Jun-20-20 L Day vs Bisguier, 1979 (replies)
 
GlennOliver: To answer the question from <Jesuitic Calvinist> all those years ago, I think that 54. Na2 yields a draw quite quickly e.g. 54. Na2 Nb6 55. Kd6 a3 56. b5 f5 57. Ke5 Nc4+ 58. Kf4 Kc2 59. Nb4+ Kb3 60. Nd3 a2 61. Nc1+ Ka3 62. Nxa2 Kxa2 63. Kxf5 Kb3 64. Kg5 Kb4 65. Kg4 Kxb5
 
   Jun-17-20 C Crouch vs J Ambroz, 1991 (replies)
 
GlennOliver: Excellent analysis, TheaN
 
   Jun-12-20 F Vallejo Pons vs R Knaak, 2003 (replies)
 
GlennOliver: 56. Kc4 (!) and not 56. Kc3 (?) which subsequently yields a tempo and thus loses.
 
   May-26-20 Mamedyarov vs A Tasan, 2002 (replies)
 
GlennOliver: "<Brenin> The winning combination actually started with the sacrifice 41 Bxg6+" Agreed. Four of White's moves in that sequence - 41 Bxg6+ 42 Rc7+ 44 Re7+ 45 Qc1+ - would have made a worthy puzzle in their own right. Exceptional play by Mamedyarov to calculate the ...
 
   May-24-20 M Vachier-Lagrave vs A Firouzja, 2020
 
GlennOliver: This endgame calculation from both players would grace any game at classical time limits, never mind a blitz game. Quite exceptional.
 
   Apr-18-20 Reshevsky vs J Sunye Neto, 1977 (replies)
 
GlennOliver: Superb end-game play from Reshevsky. So obvious with the benefit of hindsight, but so hard to see 12 or so moves earlier when Reshevsky initiated the sequence.
 
   Mar-16-20 Mecking vs A C Rocha, 1969 (replies)
 
GlennOliver: The same moves in reverse order - 23. Nc6# Qc6 24. Qd4 - give White a clear win, but not as quickly and elegantly as the puzzle solution.
 
   Feb-26-20 M Yilmaz vs Javokhir Sindarov, 2020 (replies)
 
GlennOliver: The mating finish is so obvious when one has had silicon work it out but so tricky (at least for my minimal chess abilities, without that guidance) not to make a mistaken move over the board.
 
   Feb-23-20 R Rapport vs D Rogic, 2010 (replies)
 
GlennOliver: Brilliantly intuitive attack from Rapport.
