   Jan-20-20 Capablanca vs R Illa, 1911 (replies)
RKnight: 11. Qb7 at first glance seems like a silly move, but it virtually forces the trade of R+B+B for Q and wins the game. Capa was good at tactics too, not just at endgames.
   Jan-01-20 Flohr vs I Koenig, 1929 (replies)
RKnight: After working hard to make 40. Rc7 work, I too was "Flohred" by the quicker 40. Bxe5.
   Dec-19-19 Rubinstein vs Hromadka, 1912
RKnight: One could say that Karel found himself in a "Bad Pisityan" after 34. Bxe5, so he resigned.
   Dec-13-19 J Klinger vs W Arencibia Rodriguez, 1986 (replies)
RKnight: Darn. I was proud of getting this one, and not just 33...h3+ but the follow-up. Then I read the comments on how obvious and simple it was :-( C'est la vie.
   Sep-15-19 R H Steinmeyer vs H Berliner, 1959 (replies)
RKnight: <erniecohen> 34...bxf4 seems more like a transposition that a cook. I'd like to pay tribute to Hans Berliner, as <landshark> said, one of the greatest correspondence players. Hans and I were colleagues at the university in the 1980's and 1990's, while he built Hitech, ...
   Jul-12-19 Gossip vs Tarrasch, 1889 (replies)
RKnight: Not too much to Gossip about; he just gave away the store.
   Jul-11-19 L Gutman vs Kholmov, 1975 (replies)
RKnight: Good puzzle, Gutman used every one of his pieces. I didn't solve it because I failed to see the in-retrospect-obvious 26. Bh6+
   Jul-08-19 A Franck vs Portisch, 1958 (replies)
RKnight: OK, OK, not Monday, but it's a great midweek puzzle. I easily found the game line, but didn't really solve it, as that needs a convincing response to 26. Kb3. <agb2002> found it. I really like his (her) analyses when posted.
   Jun-15-19 Nakamura vs R Patterson, 2001
RKnight: In the 80's I played in the World Open and was in a similar situation as Roger, up the exchange but down two connected passed paws (well, Naka is up three connected passed pawns, but who's counting). I lost, but learned; very hard to stop such pawns.
   May-29-19 Anand vs H Wegner, 1987
RKnight: Lest one thinks resigning might have been premature, consider: 23...Nf4 24. Qxf7 Rg8 25. Rg7 with mate to follow
