   Mar-20-20 Ganguly vs Lu Shanglei, 2017 (replies)
 
benjaminpugh: I totally saw the entire continuation, all the way up to the poison knight at move 48 where, if the white king captures, he loses the queen. Yea, totally saw all that.
 
   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.

benjaminpugh: I spent too much time trying to decide which bishop it was better to sacrifice, never considering the answer was "both."
