   Jul-05-18 Guanchu Liu vs Li Chao, 2011 (replies)
benjaminpugh: This was easy to spot. Not many countermoves to check, either. Re chrisowen, my personal guess is that he speaks/writes in a foreign language then uses some very bad translation program to convert his posts into "English." The mentions of moves and positions are generally ...

benjaminpugh: Happy birthday!
   Jan-30-18 A W Fox vs A Clerc, 1901 (replies)
benjaminpugh: For a patzer like me, it took me a while to realize the square white needs to deflect black away from is not g7 but f6.
   Dec-18-17 M Bosiocic vs I Kowalski, 2017 (replies)
benjaminpugh: My first thought on Mondays is usually: how did the position get so bad? Here is a lesson in protecting your king over gobbling up pieces. After 30.Rd4, clearly setting up the rook sweep to h4, instead of protecting mate, black takes the now unprotected e pawn? The simple h6 ...
   Feb-02-17 P Danenhower vs Spassky, 1971 (replies)
benjaminpugh: So from the puzzle position, we're supposed to see the eventual bishop fork winning the knight? Can't say I did.
   Jan-11-16 Aronian vs Nakamura, 2010 (replies)
benjaminpugh: 42. Rb6 would be a good Thursday/Friday puzzle.
   Nov-30-15 C Storey vs J Jarmany, 2014 (replies)
benjaminpugh: This is totally a Tuesday puzzle. You have to notice the bishop on a3. My Monday brain doesn't analyze more than two attacking pieces, let alone a piece on the other corner of the board.
   Nov-20-15 Capablanca vs S Campos, 1927 (replies)
benjaminpugh: My suspicion with Chris Owen posts is he writes something in his native language, then runs it through a crappy English translator and posts it. If you wade through the gibberish, he makes a lot of sense chess-wise.
   Oct-22-15 L Filatov vs S F Mayer, 2000 (replies)
benjaminpugh: I spent too much time trying to decide which bishop it was better to sacrifice, never considering the answer was "both."
   Oct-01-15 Motylev vs A Giri, 2015 (replies)
benjaminpugh: 37. Bd3 threatening mate in 1. Oh wait. That's a rook, not a bishop. (Face palm.)
