   Feb-19-21 S Ionov vs A Yashtylov, 2000
alshatranji: Morty212: The only other move is 21.Kd3, to which 21...Qc4+, 22.Ke4 Qc3+, 23.Kd3 Qf3+, and mate next move. The text move gives White s little more hope.
   Feb-18-21 Lutikov vs A Kapengut, 1978 (replies)
alshatranji: This took a while. To be fair, this is a medium difficulty puzzle overall. However, I was stuck from the beginning on 15.Nd5. I was sure it had to be the right answer, and I kept trying to make it work: e.g. introduced by e5 or even Rxf6; or 15...Qxd2 16.Nxe7+ Kf8 17.Bxd2 Kxe7 ...
   Feb-10-21 B Maryasin vs Kasparov, 1978 (replies)
alshatranji: Perhaps White lost on time?
   Jan-26-21 V Peresipkin vs Chekhov, 1976 (replies)
alshatranji: Did Chekhov suffer an "An Attack of Nerves"? He had the advantage up to move 23 when he suddenly lost it (literally) with Bb2.
   Jan-12-21 H K Mattison vs Nimzowitsch, 1929
alshatranji: Honestly, I don't see what's so great about the pun. This is not a very quick game. Wouldn't it be better used for a miniature (a shorter one anyway)? Great game though.
   Jan-09-21 G Milos vs J Polgar, 1996 (replies)
alshatranji: I had 13...Rxc3 (the typical sacrifice now), 14.bxc3, 15.Nc5 Bf2, 16.Qa8. Black will smash the center, which seems like enough compensation for the exchange. But I can't be sure. The played position is not quite clear either.
   Jan-07-21 V Gunina vs Ju Wenjun, 2013
alshatranji: Beautiful combination after 28.K28. Shades of this famous Adams-Torre game: E Z Adams vs Carlos Torre, 1920 . But for real this time.
   Dec-28-20 F Lukez vs Hebden, 1989 (replies)
alshatranji: groog and stacase, use the Brave browser. It blocks all ads.
   May-08-20 Harold Morton vs W Adams, 1937 (replies)
alshatranji: Interesting. I realized that the game continuation is the only way to make progress. But I didn't have a plan after 29. Rxf1. Of course, there is the prospect of advancing c6, but nothing seemed clear or certain. But now I see it, Bd5+, then after Kg8 or Kh7, there is the threat

alshatranji: Bannik attack? This guy is a pun waiting to happen.
