   Feb-19-21 S Ionov vs A Yashtylov, 2000 (replies)
Nichth: The rook marches straight down Main Street and starts a satisfying attack that almost plays itself until the quieter H pawn push, which I found trickier to spot
   Dec-14-20 T Luther vs O Touzane, 1994 (replies)
Nichth: I spent more time then usual on this Monday puzzle, trying to grind out something on the queen's side, making use of the potential pin on the knight, before spotting the very pretty finish
   Aug-12-20 McShane vs D Howell, 2017 (replies)
Nichth: Black's attacking chances are good after 32.Rf8. White's multipurpose response 33.Qf4 defends his own pawns on h2 and e4, whilst putting eyes on the weak c7 pawn, and thus develops his own counter-attacking chances. Black's blunder 33...Qxc2 is met with the swift sucker-punch ...
   Dec-28-18 Yifan Hou vs Karpov, 2018 (replies)
Nichth: Love the comment by offramp - very clever!
   Jun-29-18 F Olafsson vs Unzicker, 1970 (replies)
Nichth: In the alternative line, after 45.fxe5 gxf6 46.exf6 the black king can only watch as a White King march wins the black rook. One or other of Black's a and b pawns can make a run for it but that is easily taken care of by the bishop.
   Nov-24-17 Hector vs C Hartman, 1996 (replies)
Nichth: Went for Ngh5. Whilst the computer told me it's an inferior choice, it's not by much - it certainly doesn't seem to affect the move order greatly afterwards.
   Aug-11-17 P Carlsson vs G Burgess, 2002 (replies)
Nichth: Terrific puzzle. The key for me was first to threaten mate and then to try to find a position that allows whites bishop to cover all the squares where the black rook can give check. This turns out to be b2 which also interposes between the two rooks...
   Nov-04-16 R Svane vs A Donchenko, 2015 (replies)
Nichth: Got it. White has the makings of strong attack but needs to take care of defence at the same time. The WP at e4 is under pressure and could fall if black can get more skin in the game with Ra4. So Qc4 allows the WR to interpose at b4, and it turns out that white's Q is better placed ...
   Jan-31-16 Tata Steel Masters (2016) (replies)
Nichth: So so so so So needs to up his game a bit
   Jan-14-16 K Piorun vs M Bartel, 2014 (replies)
Nichth: Didn't get this continuation as I was hung up on the drawish 32.Ng4+ Kxh5 33.Nf6+ Kxh4 34.Nxd5 Bxd5 35.Rxa7 where white, with R+3P v B+N+2P has a pinned down enemy king. Oh well.
