NBZ: <Mephisto>: Your comment intrigued me and I took the liberty of clicking on your profile. Can it indeed be the case that you waited 16 years to post your first comment?
   May-20-21 P Girinath vs Ganguly, 2000 (replies)
NBZ: In retrospect 21. b4 was disastrous for White. It opens up the b-file for White, but more importantly allowed the dark-squared bishop for Black to come alive on the a7-g1 diagonal.
   May-11-21 D Vocaturo vs Kotronias, 2006 (replies)
NBZ: So why is this a puzzle? Bxg7 is so obvious here and there is nothing out of the ordinary that happens afterwards, nothing really that White needs to worry about. Shouldn't a puzzle be, I don't know, puzzling?
   May-09-21 T Oyunbaatar vs I Chahrani, 2008 (replies)
NBZ: Because it was labelled as an insane puzzle, I spent way too much time on the intricacies of 23. Rxg5+ Kf7 24. Rg7+?! Kxg7 25. Qxe6, wondering if White has enough compensation for the exchange. (Conclusion: unclear, Black may be able to defend with 25. ... Nd5, though the position is ...
   Nov-21-20 G Kuzmin vs Alburt, 1971
NBZ: <Brenin>: Great point. It also turns out Black's control of the f5 square (with the newly minted b1 queen) is crucial in ensuring the draw. Otherwise White could play (after28 Bxh6 b1=Q 29 Bxg7+ Kxg7 30 Qc3+ Kh6) 31. Nf5+. Now if Black didn't have Qxf5 here, they would be forced ...
   Nov-15-20 Ulibin vs Lautier, 1989 (replies)
NBZ: <al wazir>: I think after 32. ... Rf5 33. Bxc5+ Kc4 White plays 34. Rxf5 gxf5 35. Bf8 g6 and then just simply keeps his bishop forever on that diagonal. The knight can never escape: if the knight ever goes to e7 White can chop it off to go into a winning K&P ending. And if Black ...
   Oct-14-20 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2020 (replies)
NBZ: Having said that the final position was drawn as well, as there were mistakes made by both players in the time scramble. Quite an interesting game though.
   Aug-29-20 N Krishna Teja vs L Jarmula, 2018 (replies)
NBZ: I had the same idea as <An Englishman>. Sadly, Stockfish has informed me that after 17. ... e5, White can defend with 18. Qb4!
   Aug-28-20 F W Viney vs Herbert Francis Gook, 1926 (replies)
NBZ: It's true, though, isn't it? Every Black piece is needed. Some of the pawns, maybe not.
   Aug-28-20 H E Myers vs B Devin, 1973 (replies)
NBZ: What a strange game! I like it.
