It's like ten thousand rooks when all you need is a knight

Honey Blend: White-to-play on the 19th move 19. ♘fg6+ hxg6 20. ♖d3 with mate following shortly seems like an equally fitting Tuesday puzzle. [DIAGRAM]

Honey Blend: <CivilDisobedience: WHY 21. Kf2 ?> Allows White to hang on to the extra material in the short term, although it can be argued that 21. ♖xf2 ♕xg3 22. ♖f3 while holding the e5 pawn, might have better defended the position at the cost of a pawn.

Honey Blend: 29. ... g5 would have been good enough to defend the position. 30. ♖d6 ♕e7 followed by ... ♖ae8 blocks the passed pawn. The h6-e3 chain also looks cool and does a good job of blocking ♖e1.
 
   Feb-02-23 E M Jackson vs Flohr, 1929 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: 34. ♖xe5+ ♔f8 35. d6 also works well.
 
   Feb-01-23 I Hakki vs D Chen, 1978 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: I'd try to hit back with 19. ... ♖ac8 20. ♖f1+ ♔e8 21. ♖xe7+ ♔xe7 22. ♗b7 ♖c7 23. ♗xa6 b4 24. ♘e4 ♖a8 25. ♗d3 ♖xa2 [DIAGRAM]
 
   Jan-27-23 Van Wely vs A Fishbein, 1993 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: Black having already played 18. ... ♗e6 should have ignored the h6 attack and immediately get rid of the strong knight with 19 ... ♗xd5. With ♘d5 gone, a ... ♕f6 defense to h6 will then be possible.
 
   Jan-25-23 Cory Riegelhaupt vs A Fishbein, 2011 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: 21. ♕xd6 is just absolutely giving it up, although 21. ♘d2 ♗c5 will still lead to a crushing attack.
 
   Jan-24-23 G Abrahams vs R Thynne, 1929 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: At least White's 24th move makes a fitting Monday puzzle.
 
   Jan-19-23 Z Kovacs vs E McCormick, 1955 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: 31. ... ♔f8 or even ♔h8 might have prolonged the game.
 
   Jan-18-23 E Roebers vs L'Ami, 2023 (replies)
 
Honey Blend: There's no stopping those passed pawns. I personally would've gone for <Steamroebers> instead, but who am I to judge?
