   Apr-30-12 P Pelts vs Yermolinsky, 1994
 
Vanish Doom: The 1994 US Open USCF crosstable indeed shows Pelts losing to Yermolinsky. The result shown on the game score above is definitely incorrect.
 
   Apr-24-12 Khismatullin vs Zhou Jianchao, 2012 (replies)
 
Vanish Doom: A Tuesday puzzle which is way harder than the Saturday puzzle three days before? Huh?
 
   Jan-20-11 A Kolev vs J Polgar, 1993 (replies)
 
Vanish Doom: Not so fast. What happens on 24. Nb1? If 24...Qxe4, then White seems to have 25. Bxa1 Bxa1 26. Rxd7, so does Black have nothing better than 24...Rxb1+ 25. Kxb1 Qxe4+, with two knights for a rook? This line certainly must be addressed before anyone can claim to have a solution.
 
   Apr-29-08 V Olexa vs M Ujtelky, 1948 (replies)
 
Vanish Doom: <bright1: What if White plays 26. Qf3 instead of Qe1. Does Ujtelky still have a winning move then?> If nothing else, 26...Rxc2 wins 2 pieces for a rook.
 
   Feb-21-08 B I Dikarev vs R Pelts, 1964 (replies)
 
Vanish Doom: <gadfly> You're right. Qe4+ does lose to Qg6+. <zooter> No, it's not stalemate, as White can play Kg5 or Kg4.
 
   Jan-21-08 Fischer vs Euwe, 1960 (replies)
 
Vanish Doom: <<scholes: Euwe would had also resigned after a7 . Fischer simply made him resign without honour .Fischer should have respeccted euwe.>> Umm, what?? Are you serious? Fischer should have played an amateurish move instead of the best move because otherwise it would be ...
 
   Nov-14-07 N Davies vs C Duncan, 1999 (replies)
 
Vanish Doom: I saw the same thing as Manic. I agree 28. Nf6+ is better.
 
   Jan-13-07 Shulman vs The World, 2007 (replies)
 
Vanish Doom: Can we do this without copping out and using computers this time? I voted for 1...Nf6, by the way.
 
   Nov-10-06 Sjestov vs Krovatkin, 1997 (replies)
 
Vanish Doom: I got it up to 30...Qxc3+ but couldn't see what to do afterwards. I guess I can't consider it a correct solution.
 
   Oct-30-06 Grischuk vs Ponomariov, 2000 (replies)
 
Vanish Doom: Easy even for a Monday. I saw it before the web page finished displaying on my screen.
