   Oct-06-09 S Polgar vs A Rabczewski, 1989 (replies)
MenisfromVenis: Qf5 wins a R. More of a Monday puzzle.
   Oct-05-09 J Gast vs E Bhend, 1987 (replies)
MenisfromVenis: It's Monday, so it's a Q sac! Qxh2!
   Sep-22-09 Illescas Cordoba vs Adams, 1992 (replies)
MenisfromVenis: Ng5 with the threat of Qh7# wins the R.
   Sep-20-09 P Imbaud vs Strumilo, 1922 (replies)
MenisfromVenis: <gofer: 14 ... Qxg5 Black is a piece up for the two lost pawns and a horrible king position, but I cannot see a quick kill for white... ...anyone see something I have missed???> 15 c3+ Ke3 16 0-0 Qh4 (to stop the mate) 17 Rf3+ Ke2 18 Rd2+ Ke1 19 Rf1#
   Mar-23-09 L De Veauce vs Keene, 1963 (replies)
MenisfromVenis: I couldn't believe this was a 2300 rated player, but having read Mr Keene comments, it makes some sense. Still, a fool's mate in a real game!!!
   Mar-06-09 Tal vs Timman, 1972 (replies)
MenisfromVenis: As soon as I noticed it was Tal to move, I thought: "it's some extravagant sac, I bet it's RxN". Then forgot about it, looked for some other moves, couldn't find any, gave up and looked at the solution...RxN, darn!!!!!!!!!!!!
   Mar-05-09 Steinitz vs Schlechter, 1898 (replies)
MenisfromVenis: Didn't see it, sigh!
   Mar-04-09 Fischer vs R Shocron, 1959 (replies)
MenisfromVenis: Bd7 saves White R. Took me some time to see....
   Feb-26-09 Tarrasch vs D G Baird, 1898 (replies)
MenisfromVenis: Well, Bd2 aiming for h6 stands out, but I would not got the continuation.
   Feb-25-09 J Mason vs Teichmann, 1894 (replies)
MenisfromVenis: More like a Friday, Saturday puzzle. I could see the potential of the N fork but not how to use it... darn. Qd3 is a great move.
