   Jan-18-21 J K Duda vs N Grandelius, 2021 (replies)
areknames: <An Englishman> Whilst I never cared much for the double fianchetto, Grandelius' set-up here was a staple of my repertoire with both colours back in the day. I played countless games with it and came to know it quite well. If Black can play f4 with impunity in this sort of ...
   Jan-18-21 A Jerez vs A Romero Holmes, 2001 (replies)
areknames: Not immediately obvious perhaps because there's no capture/no queen sac, but 28...Ng3+ does the job, Black's Q will deliver mate on f2 next move. Good puzzle.

areknames: <In 1927, only one chess master in the world had a plus score against <Capablanca>. Who was that master? > Akiba Rubinstein
   Jan-16-21 L Galojan vs E Paehtz, 2009 (replies)
areknames: Ok, I now see this was once a Tuesday puzzle. Nice little combination anyway.
   Dec-30-20 G Jones vs G Kjartansson, 2019
areknames: <The engine gives 65. c4 with a +7.00 advantage. I suppose no human mind would find such a move> I'm not entirely sure about that, it just wasn't GM Jones's day.

areknames: <Adjournment arguments - I miss them but not the actually adjournments> If I was still playing OTB I probably would. I fondly remember spending a long evening trying to rescue a difficult endgame against a particularly unpleasant opponent and then quickly agreeing to a draw ...
   Dec-30-20 Larsen vs Fischer, 1971
areknames: I don't know if Larsen ever played, or even knew about cricket (most Europeans don't, not really) but he must have been devastated by the outcome of this match. So, "Knocked for six".
   Dec-30-20 Carlsen vs Topalov, 2008
areknames: <W Westerlund> White threatens Bh6 mate. The only defence seems to be 37...Kg7 after which 38.Qf6+ Kg8 39.Bh6 also leads to mate.
   Dec-30-20 Fischer vs Larsen, 1971 (replies)
areknames: In his book on the Match of the Century, Mario Monticelli writes that Fischer himself described this game as one of the best he had ever played. Any primary source for this? Not that I doubt that Bobby would have thought this mind you, obviously this game is an Ode to Chess.
   Dec-29-20 D Dubov vs Karjakin, 2020 (replies)
areknames: Like has been pointed out 7...d5 looks normal here and should perhaps have been played but surely Dubov was prepared for that.
