   Apr-21-12 A Ozsvath vs K Honfi, 1953 (replies)
 
Quentinc: I found this pretty easy for a Saturday too. A game full of great knight forks.
 
   Apr-20-12 Larsen vs A Matanovic, 1965 (replies)
 
Quentinc: <Tired Tim,> that's because Dzechiel wasn't presented with "32, White to move and win." I'm sure I wouldn't have seen this OTB, but as a puzzle I found it pretty easy for a Friday. Much easier than yesterday's. On the other hand, if it was the puzzle was 31 white to move and ...

Quentinc: <Al Wazir><But look at it this way: if the puzzle had consisted of the position after 22. Nb6 Ne2, don't you think you would have found 23. Qf8+ too?> Not in a million years. Of course, 22...Ne2 didn't occur to me either.
 
   Mar-09-12 Radjabov vs Karjakin, 2012 (replies)
 
Quentinc: A fascinating miss. Because it's a puzzle, I "knew" the answer was b6 and b7, and that the key would involve a fork on c2 preventing the Black rook from stopping the pawn on the b file. And, STILL, I couldn't get it! I even tried starting with Rc4+.
 
   Mar-05-12 Keene vs R Calvo, 1968 (replies)
 
Quentinc: Not only that, the "debate" inspired the first <chrisowen> post I think I actually understand (and agree with completely!).

Quentinc: <Albertan>, <MAJ>, <Akatombo> and <Polarx>, thanks very much for the input!
 
   Dec-08-11 Alekhine vs R L Bornholz, 1929 (replies)
 
Quentinc: Vastly easier than yesterday's. I missed yesterday's altogether (I was part of the Rxa5 crowd); this one took less than a minute.
 
   Dec-02-11 J Zawadzka vs L Schut, 2010 (replies)
 
Quentinc: <thegoldenband,> I had the exact same reaction. Honestly, I think it's hit or miss to a large extent. I can't see any pattern to the ones I find really easy, and then the ones I struggle with that everyone else seems to find easy.
 
   Nov-18-11 I Jones vs J Dueball, 1974 (replies)
 
Quentinc: Funny. Everyone seemed to get yesterday's and I missed it. But this one leaped out at me in under 30 seconds.
 
   Nov-04-11 Szabo vs Kotov, 1946 (replies)
 
Quentinc: Like everyone else, 16.Nd5 jumped right out at me, but after 18...g6 (which along with Bf5, I never considered), why not simply 19.Bxe7? 19...gxf5 20.Bxf8 and there are too many pieces hanging for my brain to deal with, but it still seems like White has a lot more of them.
