   Jun-15-22 de Firmian vs Yudasin, 1990 (replies)
 
NBZ: I also had 19. Nxe6 Rxe6 20. Nd5 Qa5 21. Ne7?? Rxe7 22. Qxe7, which wins, of course. But 21. Ne7 still gets a double ? because how often in your life can you play a move like 21. Qe7!!

NBZ: <Brenin>: Agreed about 16. h3 being an error. But the big mistake for me came at move 13, just castling straight into the inevitable attack. An intriguing alternative is 13. d5 exd5 14. Nd4.
 
   Mar-23-22 Xiong vs Shabalov, 2017 (replies)
 
NBZ: <NBZ: I found this really difficult, and just could not find Qb6.> Note to self: evidently, I have not changed in the last 4 years! I found this just as difficult. At least I "saw" the Qb6 idea this time, but managed to convince myself it didn't work. Alas.
 
   Mar-07-22 R G Wade vs R F Boxall, 1953 (replies)
 
NBZ: <Skewbrow><raymondhow>: Nh5 is indeed interesting. After Nh5 Rxh5 Rxf7, White has to play the obvious Rxe5, and avoid the tempting Ng6+?? Kg8 and now White even loses because of the mate threat. Example: Nxe7+ Rdxe7 Rd1 Rxf1+ Qxf1 Qxh5 picks up a rook. Or Nxe5 Rxf1+ Qg1 ...
 
   Feb-27-22 Hector vs Ziatdinov, 1994 (replies)
 
NBZ: I chose Bc7 too. It seems to lead to a dominating position for White in all lines: 18. Bc7 Qxc7 19. Nxd5 Qd8 20. Rfe1 Ra7 21. Bxc4 bxc4 22. Qxc4 and Black's position is hopeless: a pawn down, bishop pinned to the king, no way to castle etc. 18. Bc7 Qd7 19. Nxd5 Qxd5 20. Rfe1 and either ...
 
   Dec-24-21 Grigoriev vs Furman, 1950 (replies)
 
NBZ: Any chance Black resigned here and the score was not correctly recorded?
 
   Oct-29-21 Schiffers vs Chigorin, 1897 (replies)
 
NBZ: Thanks <Phony Benoni>. This would have been a really pretty combination, a shame Chigorin did not find it. Needless to say, I did not either. It almost could be a Saturday or Sunday puzzle. It does feature a series of checks that forces mate, but the first two moves are not easy ...
 
   Oct-11-21 So vs Sasikiran, 2015 (replies)
 
NBZ: I do enjoy the fact that the combination would not work if Black didn't have the d4 pawn, since after Qxf5 Black would mate with Qa1+ Kh2 g3. Though White can still play the strong Qd8+ Rf6 h4+ (same idea!) Kg6 Re8! with a very large advantage.
 
   Oct-06-21 Chen Zou vs Sengupta, 2019 (replies)
 
NBZ: <newzild> that is tempting indeed, but for 38. ... Rxf6 bringing White's queen to a premature end.
 
   Oct-05-21 Englisch vs Blackburne, 1883
 
NBZ: Ay, Englisch was badly burned.
