Herma48852: Could not find the right move order for this beautiful end game combo. Great puzzle!
   Dec-05-16 Fridman vs H Odeev, 1996 (replies)
Herma48852: <morfishine: Easy-Peezy: White, a pawn-up, has a forced win in 178 moves> I believe I have found an improvement with a forced win in 177 moves but there is not enough room in the margin to present the detailed variations.

Herma48852: <al wazir A more elegant ending would have been 49. Qxg7+ Nxg7 50. Ng5+ Kg6/Kg8 51. Rxg7+ Kxg7 52. Nxe6+ Kf6 53. Nxc5> Yes that is quite beautiful .. thanks!

Herma48852: Beautiful finish!
   Sep-20-16 G Lambert vs Nunn, 1977 (replies)
Herma48852: 44... Qg2+ 45.Nxg2 hxg2+ 46.Qxg2 Nxg2 47.Kxg2 b2 followed by b1=Q Beautiful promotion to queen combo!

Herma48852: 21. Nxd5 cxd5 22. Qxc7 Rxc7 23. Rxc7

Herma48852: Once I saw that e7 was covered by the R/e1 after checking with Ng6, a little deflection was necessary to make it work: 36. Rxf6+! Bxf6 (or Qf7) 37. Ng6#
   Aug-03-16 G Ferrantes vs A Giustolisi, 1956 (replies)
Herma48852: A very nasty double check setup with a N+Q sac does the job: 42.. Nxf2+ 43.Rxf2 Qg2+! 44. R2xg2 hxg2+ 45. Kg2 Rh1#
   Jul-20-16 Timoshenko vs R Verdes Nadal, 2006 (replies)
Herma48852: The space advantage by White is so overwhelming there had to be a material winning combination in there .. and this time I found it: 11. Bxf7 Kxf7 12. Ng5+ Kg8 13. Qe6+ Kg8 14. Nf7+ and smothered mate to follow.
   Jun-20-16 So vs Fedorchuk, 2015 (replies)
Herma48852: Oh goody-goody .. just my speed: 31..Rh1+ 32.Bxh1 Rg1#
