   Oct-09-05 I Platonov vs Savon, 1968 (replies)
Sadgrinner: Sorry! If 20... Ncxd6, then: 21. Ne7+ Kh8 22. Qxf8# If 20...Nexd6, then 21. Qg7#
   May-14-05 H Pfleger vs Larsen, 1974 (replies)
Sadgrinner: Has anyone mentioned this isn't forcing? IE: after white's: 60. Nxh4 Black can play 60... Nb4, later sacrificing his knight to kill the pawn. So this isn't really a 'white to play and win'. Please let me know if I'm incorrect!
   Nov-11-04 Leko vs Anand, 2003 (replies)
Sadgrinner: <artemis> "Ng3+ is a very thematic move, opening the king to a corridor mate, unless the knight takes..." May I ask what you mean by corridor mate? We might have 38. Kg1 Nf5+ 39. Kh1 Nxe3 Which leaves black with a ridiculously won position, but it's still not mate or ...
   Nov-10-04 Greco vs NN, 1620 (replies)
Sadgrinner: 10. dxc5 gxf3 11. Qxf3 Qxc5 12. Bxf4 Qxc4 Now black has a material advantage! I see that white has strength concentrated in the center, but how does one convert this into a win? C'mon guys - if black should be resigning as you say he should, it shouldn't be much of a problem
   Oct-23-04 A Velibekov vs Kasparov, 1976 (replies)
Sadgrinner: 23...Qxe5 24. Nc6+ Ke8 25. Rd8#
   Oct-23-04 E Magerramov vs Kasparov, 1973 (replies)
Sadgrinner: Because I could not see why Magerramov resigned, here's some help who don't feel like figuring out the continuation on their own. If 36. Nxe5, then 36...Rxf4 threatening violence at f1, so 37. Rxf4 Qxe5 recovering the knight. At the end of this specific melee, Kasparov's Bxe5 ...
   Oct-22-04 Gulko vs Volovich, 1968 (replies)
Sadgrinner: <patzer2> "Note that after 26. Ng5+ that Black cannot capture the Bishop with 26...Kxf6 because 27. Qe6+! leads to a quick mate." For those who are interested... 27...Kg7 28. Qf7+ Whether black plays king to h6 or h8, white responds: 29.Qxh7#
   Oct-11-04 Tartakower vs H E Atkins, 1922 (replies)
Sadgrinner: Can someone please tell my why Atkins doesn't play 20. ...b5 to win the queen?
   Oct-04-04 Rohde vs G C DeFotis, 2001 (replies)
Sadgrinner: Well, wouldn't black move the rook to e8 to prevent the queen-king fork? Nevertheless, white wins a piece and maintains a tremendous spatial advantage. I wonder, is the theme of the week going to be 'Removing the Defender'?
   Sep-28-04 Fischer vs S Schweber, 1970 (replies)
Sadgrinner: Can someone explain Fischer's 42. h3? Why doesnt' black just capture with 42. ...Bxh3?
