   Nov-26-19 A Eswaran vs Maggie Feng, 2019 (replies)
Honey Blend: White should have gone for the aggressive 62. b5, punishing black for getting his Bishop out of the a4-e8 diagonal.
   Nov-10-19 Vyzmanavin vs V Ruban, 1989 (replies)
Honey Blend: I was thinking maybe 23. ♖g5 hxg5 24. hxg5+ ♔g8 25. gxf6 opens up the g and h-files to an attack. [DIAGRAM]
   Aug-16-19 Tingjie Lei vs F Peralta, 2019 (replies)
Honey Blend: 26. ... ♕d3+ should have at least forced a Queen trade and a pawn down, but not immediately losing, endgame.
   Jul-08-19 A Franck vs Portisch, 1958 (replies)
Honey Blend: I opted for the quiet 25. ... ♔b8, with the idea that if 26. ♕xc4 ♖c8 wins, either way ... ♖c8 is coming and should be enough to win, but of course not on a Monday puzzle. Or is Monday the new Wednesday?
   Jun-18-19 G Grasser vs Errol Singh, 2009 (replies)
Honey Blend: 27. ♖xf7 ♖xf7 28. ♕g8+ ♔d7 29. ♕xf7 ♕f8 30. ♘xf6+ ♔d8 31. ♕xf8+ ♗xf8 32. ♘h7 ♗e7 33. f6 wins at least a piece. [DIAGRAM] In a blitz game, this is what I might prefer.
   Jun-04-19 C Bloodgood vs Jackson, 1976 (replies)
Honey Blend: I would have played 14. ... ♘c7 and wait to see what White's plan is, as his ♘a4 and ♗h6 look very poorly placed.
   Apr-09-19 D Bouah vs V Gunina, 2011 (replies)
Honey Blend: <Not sure what makes this GOTD material> Just guessing - White (almost) falls prey to two instances of Knight fork tactics on the same game. If you see this too often then maybe you're right to say this isn't too GOTD-worthy.
   Mar-23-19 B Moon vs D Aaron, 2017 (replies)
Honey Blend: The simple 43. ♖d1 would have defended nicely. White would most likely at some point lose f3 and has to deal with Black's passed c-pawn, but looks to have fair drawing chances.
   Mar-12-19 D C Cadelago vs S Decuadro, 2009 (replies)
Honey Blend: Black could have gotten away with 31. ... ♗e7!, as 32. ♕xe7 ♘xd3 33. ♖xd3 ♖f8 wins back the material. He can't move ♘f6 due to the back rank mate. [DIAGRAM] Poor a1 knight too.
   Dec-11-18 Miles vs Polugaevsky, 1984 (replies)
Honey Blend: I love the idea of 34. ... f3!. What might even be harder to spot is 35. gxf3 ♕f5!! and White looks lost. [DIAGRAM] Now the e pawn is attacked twice, the h pawn is hanging, and at the same time 36. ♕xa2 doesn't help because of the fork 36. ... ♖xd1+ 37. ...
