areknames: <Don't forget that 26. Qc2 also allows 26 ... Qd4 27. Qg2! with mate.> It's not mate as Black can play 27...Qxg1+ but yes, it's another finesse of the position, well spotted <tigreton>!. After 28.Qxg1 Rg8 White can play the sadistic 29.Qc5 and will win comfortably.

areknames: Loving this debate about Shakespeare, although it's probably above my pay grade. Whoever he was, alongside with Dante and Goethe he IS the literature of our Western Civilization. This is Peter Hammill's simple but touching homage to him:
   Jan-21-20 C E Murphy vs Justin Tan, 2018 (replies)
areknames: White will lose a piece after 16.Qd1 Qe7+. However his position is already so bad that he could resign even if the tactical resource mentioned above wasn't available. What an utter shambles.

areknames: <perfidious> There's more to life than playing chess?? What a load of codswallop..
   Jan-18-20 S Bengtsson vs N Benmesbah, 2019 (replies)
areknames: Instead of 20.c3?? (why, why? Even if the mate in two wasn't possible Black simply plays 20...Bxc6 and wins easily) 20.Qxb5 followed by Bxd7 and White is very surprisingly still alive.
   Jan-18-20 Anna Kubicka vs S M Shyam, 2019 (replies)
areknames: <Outstanding pun! All the more because Black's king had an interesting role.> Not too sure about that, considering that when Black's king makes its first move White is already clearly losing. However the pun is obviously pretty good. The game is rather pedestrian though, ...
   Jan-16-20 Nimzowitsch vs Ahues, 1928 (replies)
areknames: 11...Bd7?? preventing Qa4 but allowing 12.Bh5 is the losing move. 11...Bg7 kicking the knight looks ok, and if 12.Qa4+ Kf8 13.f4 h5 and Black is still fighting.
   Jan-11-20 L Buggiani vs T D Murphy, 2006 (replies)
areknames: No idea about the pun here but a pointless game. The players go through the motions until the terrible 20...Bc5? 20...Re6 preparing Nc5 is thematic in this kind of position and would have given Black a comfortable game.
   Jan-11-20 October Revolution 60th Anniversary (1977)
areknames: < The roster of players is entirely from the Soviet Union or countries in the Soviet block, except for Mariotti.> Knezevic was from Yugoslavia, a country with a less centralized system than other Communist countries and certainly not part of the Soviet bloc ever since the ...
   Jan-11-20 S Mariotti vs G Kuzmin, 1977
areknames: <Nice play by Mariotti.> Yes, some lovely opening tactics in this unusual gambit. Thanks to his lead in development White can gobble up Black's two remaining Q-side pawns once the queens are off the board and enters the endgame with a slight advantage. If 18...b6 then 19.d5 ...
