benveniste: I'm going to give myself partial credit even though I couldn't find a clear path forward after 25. ... ♗xd3
   May-11-21 D Vocaturo vs Kotronias, 2006 (replies)
benveniste: I spent too long trying to see what was Black's threat. I finally decided to give up on the puzzle and grab a pawn.
   May-07-21 Lutikov vs V Osnos, 1965 (replies)
benveniste: No points for me today. While I found ♗xf7, I didn't find e6.
   May-05-21 S Busygin vs R Burnett, 2014 (replies)
benveniste: I thought it was obvious through move 30 as well, but Stockfish says that 29. ... ♕d3+ is a faster forced mate.
   May-03-21 H Barber vs Hebden, 2000 (replies)
benveniste: Once upon a time in a high school tournament, I spent 3 solid minutes trying to figure out why my opponent was sacrificing their queen. Eventually I shrugged and took the queen. They resigned.
   Apr-30-21 D Kopec vs D K Johansen, 1982 (replies)
benveniste: <Anjeneyar> In your line, on move 42 Black can play 42. ... ♖xe5, giving back the piece and leading to a draw with opposite color bishops.
   Apr-28-21 Leko vs Kharlov, 1992 (replies)
benveniste: I started this one by asking myself, "Self, can I trap the Queen?" Only then did I look at 26. ♖xh6, and realized that after 26. ... ♘f7, ♖a6 does in fact trap the queen. The move played allows the White Queen to go wild.
   Apr-23-21 I Khamrakulov vs F Fargere, 2001 (replies)
benveniste: I ended up playing 32. ♖h4 instead of ♖g5, so I'll give myself 80% credit.
   Mar-30-21 Zugzwang vs McShane, 1998 (replies)
benveniste: "White to play and avoid blundering away a win."
   Oct-28-20 N Gaprindashvili vs Pomar Salamanca, 1973 (replies)
benveniste: White to play and avoid a5. I came up with ♖g4, which I think invites the quickest draw.
