   Jan-18-21 A Jerez vs A Romero Holmes, 2001 (replies)
 
Nullifidian: 28... ♘g3+ followed by ♕f2# whatever white's response.
 
   Jan-16-21 L Galojan vs E Paehtz, 2009 (replies)
 
Nullifidian: The fact that this was a Tuesday puzzle explains it, because that's the actual level of difficulty. After 39... ♕f5+ 40. ♕f4 ♕xe3+, there are no good moves. 41. ♖e3 mates in 1, as in the game, 41. ♔g2 loses the rook to ♖xe2+, 41. ♔f2 is ...
 
   Jan-05-21 M Lodhi vs G Milos, 1988 (replies)
 
Nullifidian: I too immediately thought 38... ♖xg2+ 39. ♔xg2 ♗d5+ to open up an attack on the white queen with tempo.
 
   Jan-04-21 S Sevian vs H Gabuzyan, 2019 (replies)
 
Nullifidian: 49...♖xa3+ 50. ♔xa3 ▢ ♕a4#
 
   Jan-01-21 Macieja vs R Slobodjan, 2011
 
Nullifidian: A white to move and mate in 7 puzzle without a single silent move seems on the easy side for a Thursday. This is surely a Tuesday or Wednesday puzzle at most. 30. ♖xh7+ ♔xh7 (♔f8 31. ♖h8+ ♔g7 32. ♕d4+ ♔f7 (♗f6 33. ♕xf6#) 33. ...
 
   Dec-28-20 F Lukez vs Hebden, 1989 (replies)
 
Nullifidian: 36. ♖f8+, a sacrifice to unpin the bishop. It has to be accepted because all the squares around the king are covered. So, 36... ♗xf8 37. ♗g5+ ♔f5 ▢ 38. ♙g4#
 
   Dec-15-20 E Gulden vs Andrei Macovei, 2018 (replies)
 
Nullifidian: 31. ♖xh7+ ♔xh7 32. ♖h4+ ♘h6 33. ♖xh6#, though as a matter of practical over the board play I think 32. ♕g6+ followed by ♖h4+ is just as good because no player is going to give up their queen just to stave off mate for one more move.
 
   Dec-14-20 T Luther vs O Touzane, 1994 (replies)
 
Nullifidian: 19. ♕xe6+ ♙fxe6 (♗e7 20. ♕Qxe7#) 20. ♗g6#
 
   Dec-12-20 A Cramling Bellon vs Esperanca Caxita, 2018
 
Nullifidian: <al wazir> A smothered mate might be more enjoyable, but there's a quicker mate: 26. ♕e6+ ♔h8 27. ♘xg6+ ♙hxg6 28. ♖h4#. Which brings me to your earlier note about 26. ♘xg6. You're right that 27. ♖xg6 equalizes, but it's by ...
 
   Dec-09-20 Ganguly vs Axel Smith, 2019 (replies)
 
Nullifidian: <Halldor> White mates in the same number of moves with either line. The spite check doesn't enter into it. 29. ♕h5 ♗xf2+ 30. ♔f1 and now the only move that isn't mate in 1 is 30... ♗h4, as I pointed out earlier, but this still allows 31. ♕h7+ ...
