brianhughes: <Patriot ... 15.Nb6+ Nxb6 16.Bf5+ e6 17.Rxd5 Nxd5 18.Bxg4 wins queen for rook.> Actually, 18. Bxe6+ wins the queen for only a minor piece following 18. ... Rd7 19. Bxg4 as white will be able to win the exchange of the pinned Rook on d7. If instead of 18 ... Rd7, Black ...

brianhughes: It is interesting that 18. ... exf5? appears to be a one-move blunder, because 18. ... Rxd4 is very even.
 
   Jan-09-12 Graf-Stevenson vs Semmler, 1932 (replies)
 
brianhughes: Black's 30th move "to safety behind the f-pawn" leads to a mate in four (mate obvious in two moves) Monday puzzle. If black takes the rook 30... fxg6 instead, the mate takes nine moves and would become at least a Tuesday puzzle.

brianhughes: <Patriot> and <K.A.B> I believe <sassa> has a valid suggestion (7... Nxg4). This allows f5 (instead of h5 as suggested in the lines posted) to protect the knight and leads to a playable game for black.
 
   Sep-20-11 Hamppe vs A Schwarz, 1864 (replies)
 
brianhughes: <sevenseaman> Whites moves Be6 threatening Qh7# on the next move. Black delays longest by playing ... Bh4 Qxg6+, Kh8 Rhxh4+, Qxh4 Rxh4#. If instead black responds to Be6 by playing ... Re8 Qh7+, Kf8 Qxf7#.
