   Mar-25-16 P Romanovsky vs Y Vilner, 1927 (replies)
dougiejfresh: I'd guess the pun is from Othello ("And what's he then that says I play the villain?"). When I first read it, though, I read "Vilner" as "winner" and figured it referred to the standard "I play winner?" request.
   Aug-12-14 Ivanchuk vs Mamedyarov, 2014 (replies)
dougiejfresh: White's choices are: 1. Move king, lose bishop; 2. Capture with rook, lose exchange; or 3. Capture with bishop (26. Bxd4) 1 and 2 are clear losers, so let's try 3. If Bxd4, then 26...Rc4+. Any king move will be followed by 27...Rd8, pinning the bishop against the ...
   Jun-30-14 So vs D Haessel, 2014
dougiejfresh: Haessle Offed
   Jan-19-14 Giri vs M Prusikin, 2013 (replies)
dougiejfresh: "Cruisin' for a Prusikin"
   Apr-16-13 M Playa vs R Watanabe, 1991 (replies)
dougiejfresh: 31. Bxd5 loses material. Black replies 31. ...Bc1, and White has no safe square for the rook on the d-file (Rd4 loses the rook to the knight fork Ne2+) Moving the rook off the d-file leaves the bishop hanging to the knight, and 32. Rf2, threatening the loose bishop on f5, loses
   Feb-20-13 Kasparov vs R Ballantyne, 2008 (replies)
dougiejfresh: the original - a favorite -
   Jan-29-13 A Rico Gonzalez vs F Ballbe Anglada, 1955 (replies)
dougiejfresh: I think its 26. Rh1+ Bh5 27. Rxh5+ gxh5 28. Rh7+ Kxh7 29. Qg7#
   Jan-27-13 E Myhre vs G Lorson, 1952 (replies)
dougiejfresh: Erlenmeyer flask -
   Jan-18-13 Kavalek vs J A Grefe, 1973 (replies)
dougiejfresh: Black seems lost anyway. What happens after 41. Bg6 Kf6 42. Bh5, threatening Qg6#? Black cannot defend g6. Seems 42...Kg5 is forced, but 43. Qg6 still wins (43...Kf4 44. g3#; 43...Kh4 44. Re4+ wins the queen). What am I missing?
   Aug-14-12 Kupreichik vs Razuvaev, 1980 (replies)
dougiejfresh: 29...Rxe6 won't delay the pain at all - 30 Nf6# is still good. 29...Qxe6 is hardly better, as 30 Rxe6 once again leaves f6 undefended and black is down a queen. Black can only delay the pain with 29...f6. But mate follows anyway: 30. Nf6+ Kf7 31. Qh7+ Kf8 32. Qg8+ Ke7 33.
