   Oct-21-20 Zeng Chongsheng vs Nguyen Huynh Minh Huy, 2013 (replies)
TheBish: Really instructive game. Just as soon as White has every piece developed to its ultimate attacking square, the hammer blows start with 22. d5!. 25. Bxh7+ is easy to spot, but 24. Nd7! would make for a more challenging tactical exercise (POTD).
   Oct-18-20 D Dubov vs R Svane, 2019 (replies)
TheBish: From Dubov's player profile: <Daniil Dubov became an FM in 2008, an IM in 2010 and a GM on 28 March 2011, aged 14 years 11 months and 14 days. GM Dubov is a rising young Russian star who has played with great consistency since he commenced playing competition. He was previously
   Oct-06-20 L P Spellman vs A Pearsall, 1937 (replies)
TheBish: I think the title should be "Correspondence". Oh wait... it's already there three times!
   Oct-04-20 Efe Hakan Ozturk vs Yanki Kara, 2018 (replies)
TheBish: My first impression was that the pun was too cheap and easy. As the game wore on (especially after White had R+2P vs R), I smiled and realized the pun was perfect. Black should have resigned on move 48, not 82. Go home indeed! Whatever Black's personal reason was for playing on, at ...
   Sep-25-20 Balashov vs Ulf Andersson, 1973 (replies)
TheBish: White to play (23.?) "Difficult" White wins the queen or mates after 23. Rxh7+ Kg8 24. e6! (to block the black king's escape via f7 and/or e6). Now, whether Black plays 24...Qxe6 or moves the queen elsewhere (24...Qc6), the reply is 25. Rh8+ followed by 26. Qh7#. It seems that the ...
   Sep-21-20 E Karklins vs J Damocles, 2010
TheBish: I would say the pun is appropriate here. The Sword of Damocles was hung over Damocles using a single hair from a horse's tail. In this case, the hair broke!
   Sep-21-20 A Karklins vs Igor Ivanov, 1989
TheBish: This would make a great early-week puzzle. Easy when you know it's a puzzle! I didn't immediately see the refutation of 24. Qh6?? (had expected 24...g6), and apparently Karklins missed it completely! Or maybe he realized he was much worse and it was a last desperate stab, but I ...
   Sep-17-20 Harold Morton
TheBish: <Sally Simpson: When it was discovered Horowitz had survived the crash she reported; "I am sorry, Horowitz is still alive."> Well, at least she said that with a pause after "sorry". It would have a slightly different meaning without the comma!
   Sep-17-20 D Dvirnyy vs Shirov, 2020 (replies)
TheBish: I know I've seen a similar finish to this, just no idea what game that was.
   Sep-16-20 Napoleon Bonaparte vs The Turk, 1809
TheBish: Ironically, Napoleon was "blown apart" in a miniature.
