   Feb-28-09 Svidler vs Rublevsky, 2003 (replies)
delterp: Why not: 20. ♘xb5? On 20...a6x♘, there is a nice pin with 21 ♗xb5
   Dec-09-07 Karjakin vs E Alekseev, 2007 (replies)
delterp: <notyetagm>, <Micawbr> I guess it is just motifs that one remembers or sees. I found 25 ♘d5 to be obvious, but will probably screw up a Tuesday puzzle. Micawbr makes a good point though, the move was only obvious to me when I thought about getting the white queen ...

delterp: It's blindfold chess. If you try to make an illegal move, you lose. I would guess that is what happened.

delterp: DOH! 24 ♕b3?? seems like something I'd play, not a 2565. Or perhaps a different kind of puzzle. 24 ? White to play and allow mate in 1.
   Mar-24-07 H Bohm vs A Kochyev, 1977 (replies)
delterp: <dzechiel>, minor problem with your line. 35 ♔g2 does not mate with 35...♕h2. Both f1 and f3 are flight squares for the king that prolong the mate by 1 move. 36 ♔f1 ♕h8# 36 ♔f3 ♕h3#
   Mar-05-07 HIARCS vs Joker, 2006 (replies)
delterp: 23...♘x♖ does not win the exchange. 24 ♕x♘ leaves black in a world of hurt. The king can no longer castle and 24...♕x♗ loses to 25 ♕c1+ followed by 26 ♕x♖. White's king is safe due to ♗f1 on any queen check. And there ...
   Sep-20-06 Botvinnik vs Bronstein, 1951 (replies)
delterp: 39...f6!, simple but not necessarily obvious. White is quite nearly in zugzwang. 40...h5+ is looming and white can do nothing about either dropping the knight or hanging the rook.
   Sep-15-06 Capablanca vs Lasker, 1921 (replies)
delterp: <syracrophy> Just a little correction. After 48...♔g7, it is actually a mate in three. 49 ♕h8+ ♔g6 50 ♕h6#
   Aug-16-06 A Strikovic vs Granda Zuniga, 1986 (replies)
delterp: ...40 ♖f3! is nice. Obviously threatening ...41 ♕d2#. 41 ♕b4? ♘c3+ 42 ♔c1 ♘a2+ wins the queen easy.
   Jul-21-06 Stellwagen vs E Gullaksen, 2006
delterp: Black got what he deserved. His 5 consecutive "pass" moves with the king (moves 28-32) show a lack of any plan at all. Black should have aimed to trade off light squared bishops and advance his king side pawn majority. 28...f5 followed by 29...f4 and 30...g5.
