   Apr-23-19 I Nei vs S Makarichev, 1974 (replies)
Nullifidian: I saw 34. ♘f5 with the threat of 35. ♕g7# immediately and Black has no good moves. There's an attractive epaulette mate if Black plays this sequence of moves: 34. ♘f5 ♙gxf5 35. ♙gxf5+ ♕g6 36. ♙fxg6 ♘f6 37. ♙gxf7+ ♔xf7 ...
   Apr-10-19 Bologan vs Rozentalis, 1998 (replies)
Nullifidian: 34. ♙e6 wins a piece after 34... ♘xe6 35. ♗xf8 ♕xf8 (♘xe8?? ♕xf7) 36. ♕xe6. If 35... ♖xf8, which is probably the best bet, then 36. ♖xe6. Black will win back a pawn with ♕xf2+, but that's no compensation. If the queen ...

Nullifidian: Unless I'm hallucinating, there's a better move than 24... ♘c3. 24... ♘xc2+ 25. ♔b1 (if ♕xc2 or ♗xc2, then ♘c3+ and ♕xa4#) 25... ♘c3+ 26. ♔xc2 (if ♙bxc3, then ♕a2#) 26... ♗b3+! And now 27. ♔b3
   Feb-12-19 Ganguly vs A Filippov, 2009
Nullifidian: This was a very difficult puzzle for a Monday because White only appears to solidify an already existing piece advantage by taking the rook. It takes a couple of pieces off the board and limits black's counterplay, but I wouldn't call that much of an advantage. So I looked for ...
   Jan-01-18 McShane vs Anand, 2017 (replies)
Nullifidian: First queen sac of the new year: 51... ♕h3+ 52. ♔xh3 ♖h1#
   Dec-18-17 M Bosiocic vs I Kowalski, 2017 (replies)
Nullifidian: 31. ♕xh7+ ♔xh7 32. ♖h4+ ♔g8 33. ♖h8#

   Nov-20-17 Smagin vs J Banas, 1987 (replies)
Nullifidian: White wins a rook with 31. ♕xf8+ ♔xf8 32. ♘e6+ followed by 33. ♕xg5.
   Nov-14-17 L Schandorff vs T Willemze, 2016
Nullifidian: 27. ♖xb6 If 27... ♗xb6, then 28. ♘e7+ followed by ♘xc6

Nullifidian: 40. ♖xg8+ ♔xg8 (♔f7 41 ♖xa8) 41 ♕h8+ ♔f7 42. ♕xa8
