   Jan-18-15 E Torre vs J Kinlay, 1977 (replies)
Manic: Can anyone please provide the full continuation after pulsar's/Pavlovic's suggestion of 23.Nxf6 ? I'm looking at it and am stone cold lost in what the continuation may entail after 23...Kxf6 (other than presumably 24.Qh5)
   Jan-11-15 Aronian vs Mamedyarov, 2014 (replies)
Manic: This definitely seems closer to a Wednesday/Thursday-level puzzle.
   Aug-04-14 Shirov vs S Sulskis, 2014 (replies)
Manic: Does anyone have insight into why Black played into this? He is a GM so there must be at least some idea around it (not necessarily a good idea). Is there a line where things could get muddy in the Fried Liver?
   Dec-29-12 G Farkas vs L Szell, 1972 (replies)
Manic: <crabgrass> ...Nf7 would cover the h8 square, hence why the knight needs to be removed first.
   Dec-21-12 J Ye vs N R McDonald, 1997 (replies)
Manic: <lajube> Confused me at first as well. The queen will be taken next move and white will be a piece and a few pawns up.

Manic: Well, while I was typing that someone solved it. Didn't think of looking up 1934 games, well done!
   Dec-05-12 J Gdanski vs Arkell, 2000
Manic: 33...g5!!. Refer to for more analysis by GM Jonathan Rowson.
   Nov-05-12 L Van Vliet vs W T Dickinson, 1904
Manic: <YoungEd> The mistake is before that, Black is already losing a piece as the Bishop cannot move since the Nf6 drops, and if 22...Ne3 then 23.Rf4 Nfd5 24.Bxd5 Nxd5 25.Rxf5 or 23...Rh6 24.Re1.
   Oct-08-12 R Wojtaszek vs Ponomariov, 2012 (replies)
Manic: <keypusher> The intuition is that: a) A Queen can move the same way as a bishop, but it cannot move as a knight b) Relating to a), often the Queen can get in the way of the bishop in this way c) Ability to attack all squares means no piece is safe I may be missing some ...
   Aug-24-12 P Nguyen vs H Tikkanen, 2011 (replies)
Manic: Doesn't 36...Qxe3+ 37.Kh1 d2 work just as well?
