alshatranji: So 17. dxe5 is basically the first idea that comes tom mind. However, I had Rxd1 18. exf6 Rxf1+ 19. Bxf1 gxf6 20. Nh5, with what seemed like a good attack, which now doesn't look that forcing. Instead, I should have planned with the foresight and confidence of a grandmaster: ...

alshatranji: Interesting. I thought the solution would be 16. Rh3, followed by Bxg4 17. exf6 Bxh3 18. fxg7 Rg8 19. Bxh3 Rxg7, and White has a material advantage. I didn't even consider other options. But it seems this is not so good. Stockfish gives Black a small advantage. Well. What White ...

alshatranji: Do Black must have seen 38... Qxd1 in advance. Really beautiful.
   Sep-14-19 Nimzowitsch vs Tarrasch, 1914 (replies)
alshatranji: Perhaps too well known to be a puzzle.
   Aug-26-19 Judit Polgar vs P Chilingirova, 1988 (replies)
alshatranji: Angel of death. Not such a bad pun, I suppose , at least Chessgames standards.
   Jul-10-19 R Janssen vs I Sokolov, 2002
alshatranji: I know you're supposed to be looking for the best move objectively, but you can't just ignore the rating. I wasn't only looking for the winning move, but for the "medium easy" winning move. So I ruled out every line that seemed to require a lot of calculation. I didn't look ...
   Jun-24-19 Traxler vs J Samanek, 1900
alshatranji: Black has an acute case of OCD.
   Apr-29-19 Tartakower vs J Mieses, 1925
alshatranji: 15. Qe5 is possible too. More flashy, though admittedly less devastating.
   Mar-12-19 D C Cadelago vs S Decuadro, 2009 (replies)
alshatranji: Easy shouldn't be the same as dull.
   Jan-25-19 Yifan Hou vs Caruana, 2017 (replies)
alshatranji: I know the guidelines somewhere say you should choose the best move no matter what. But this is too much. Actually, this is one of the few cases where finding the move OTB would be easier than in the puzzle.
