   Feb-14-14 S Djuric vs A Navacchia, 1998 (replies)
 
Philistine: I think these are the kinds of puzzles that are very useful when preparing for real game situations. I spent the entire time focusing on mating the king and completely missed that black was just losing the bishop. The line is not hard to calculate. It is changing gears and ...
 
   Oct-01-13 Y Zhou vs M Wood, 2008 (replies)
 
Philistine: I immediately saw Qe8 and thought black would just play Qf8. I realize after the trade the rooks invade the 7th, but thought since this is Tuesday there would be a clear tactic. I then stressed myself out thinking I was missing something.
 
   Mar-16-13 Aronian vs Gelfand, 2013 (replies)
 
Philistine: This was a pretty convincing win by Aronian. I think Gelfand was at a disadvantage out of the opening. Very nice combination at the end and I really like 17 Ra4.
 
   Dec-31-11 V Kahn vs R B Estera, 1939 (replies)
 
Philistine: I saw all moves up to Bf4. Shameful. I think it was laziness. I give myself no credit for this one.
 
   Dec-13-11 Beliavsky vs Kupreichik, 1983 (replies)
 
Philistine: I immediately saw Rxc3, but I didn't see anything better than being up a couple pawns, which I assume is winning,but not as cut an dry as the standard Tuesday puzzle.
 
   Dec-04-11 Hikaru Nakamura (replies)
 
Philistine: I think Nakamura will have a plus score in this tournament. I think he can draw the top four and beat some of the Brits. He just needs to not try too hard for a win against Carlsen. Settle for a draw and take points from the small fish.
 
   Dec-04-11 Matulovic vs Unzicker, 1969 (replies)
 
Philistine: I saw that black was very weak on the white squares, thus the knight sac seems right; however, I don't give myself full credit because I didn't calculate all the variations.
 
   Oct-28-11 McShane vs V Mirumian, 1999 (replies)
 
Philistine: This was one of those I got quickly for some reason. Maybe it was a pattern I was familiar with. I don't know.
 
   Oct-18-11 T Hillarp Persson vs D Gajadin, 2010 (replies)
 
Philistine: Fairly straight forward. It seems like quite a blunder for a 2517 player
 
   Sep-16-11 Grischuk vs Svidler, 2011 (replies)
 
Philistine: I'm currently listening to anna sharevich sing a duet on youtube. It is terrible but amusing. As a commentator she tends to be the butt of all the jokes, as dry as they are, of what's his name who knows something about chess.
