alexrawlings: Wow, I think this is the first time Iím the first to comment on a puzzle of the day. Thatís a big one ticked off the list! I got this btw :-)
 
   Mar-12-21 Miles vs A Sorin, 1995
 
alexrawlings: Monday or Tuesday puzzle at the end of this game perhaps?
 
   Mar-01-21 V Nadtocheev vs Krogius, 1962 (replies)
 
alexrawlings: Earlier in the game, I canít understand why black didnít take the loose pawn with <22.. Rxb2>. I canít see any dangerous tactics but maybe Iím missing something?

alexrawlings: What a game! <11.. cxd5> seems a safer and better choice given the madness that ensued. Iím only just starting to look through Planincís games. What a fascinating player, a tragic life, and beautiful chess games heís left behind for the living to enjoy. Thank you Albin ...

alexrawlings: I saw the game line up to <28 Kf2> but hadnít spotted the X-ray attack and winning of the queen after <28.. Ne4+> so canít award myself the points. Nice tactic!
 
   Aug-16-20 Pavasovic vs O Sepp, 2004
 
alexrawlings: Nice game. Black was on the verge of collapse when he resigned. If <26.. Re6> white mates with <27 Rxe6! dxe6 28 Rh8+ Kf7 29 Ne5#>.

alexrawlings: Iíve just discovered the analysis function, how long has that been here? What an amazing function! Also, I saw 22 Nxe7 and the follow up with Qe6. Nice puzzle.

alexrawlings: I went for <26.. Rxg5+> and didnít even see or consider <26.. Ne4>. Probably because the check felt so forcing I thought I must be on the right path so didnít stop to look for any other candidate moves. Maybe Iíll remember this pattern in future... Having ran it ...

alexrawlings: What a great game!
 
   Jun-24-20 S Krasnov vs Murey, 1966 (replies)
 
alexrawlings: I struggled with this one. I saw <31.. Ng3+ 32 hxg3> but then my mind seemed to freeze and I couldnít visualise what the board would look like after a couple of moves. I didnít consider <32.. fxg3> but once I saw it I can see it looks winning before analysing it. ...
