dragon player: A new change this week, last week I gave up quite early. 13.Qxh7+ Kxh7 14.Rh3+ Qh5 15.Rxh5# Time to check. ------------ Yes, right. And a nice story by <Once>.
   Aug-06-12 C Ward vs A Summerscale, 1996 (replies)

   Aug-02-12 Polgar vs N Gaprindashvili, 1990 (replies)
dragon player: When I saw this I thought why not 31...Bxc6+, but than I saw it was defended. Than I saw the solution: 31...Rc3! 32.bxc3 Bxc6+ now it's no longer defended. 33.Kg1 Rg8+ 34.Kf2 Rg2+ winning the queen. Maybe there's a mate, but I don't care. Time to check. ...

dragon player: I considerded only one move when I saw this puzzle: 31...Bxg2 32.Kxg2 If 32.Qxg2 Rd2, winning the queen. 32...Rd2+ 33.Kg3 Qg1+ 34.Kf4 If 34.Kf3 Qxg5 34...Rf1# Time to check. --------------- In the game black prefered to not take the bisshop and gave a shower of ...

dragon player: It's monday, so a queen sac: 30.Qxg7+ Rxg7 31.Rxg7+ Kh8 32.Rh7# Time to check. -------------- Yes right, and it's a game from Holland. Always nice.
   Jul-27-12 Geller vs Dorfman, 1976 (replies)
dragon player: A strange puzzle today. Black's bisshop is hanging, but taking it doesn't work. I've looked at it for a while now, and I don't see anything else than this: 33.Nh8 Bxf2+ 34.Kh1! Now black has trouble defending the rook, his queen can't do this. 34...Kxh8 35.Qxf7 and ...
   Jul-26-12 E Hermansson vs S Cicak, 2006 (replies)
dragon player: When I saw this puzzle, I thought it would be white to move, since he is a lot more active. But than I saw it was black to move, and white's activity is going to be in underdoing: 16...e5! 17.Bxe5 Nc6 18.Qc3 Nxe5 19.Qxe5 Qxc4 and black's a piece up. Time to check. ...
   Jul-25-12 Sanahuja vs Fernandez, 1983 (replies)
dragon player: Strange puzzle today. There's no obvious winner. This move is nice, but I'm not so sure about it: 7.Nxc7 Rb8 hang on, I spotted something: 8.Bg5! Qxg5 9.Ne6+ winning the queen. Time to check. ------------------ That was a quite short game, but it was black's own ...
   Jul-24-12 Short vs A Muir, 2004 (replies)
dragon player: This puzzle contains some nice sacs: 35.Qxh7+ Nxh7 36.Rxh7+ Kxh7 37.Rh1+ Bh4 38.Rxh4# Time to check. -------------- yes, right. 2/2
