   Nov-28-20 Fedorov vs Kasimdzhanov, 1996 (replies)
drollere: got the first several moves, starting with the R sacrifice. although, to be honest, this was a position that highlighted, underlined and drew a circle around the d6 pawn.
   Nov-27-20 D Coleman vs Chandler, 1977 (replies)
drollere: wow. two minor pieces sacrificed for the attack. morphy couldn't have done it better.
   Nov-25-20 B Adhiban vs S Minero Pineda, 2016 (replies)
drollere: i had 47. Bg7 Be7, 48. Ra6+ Kxd5, 49. Rf6 Bxf6 (Rxf6, Bxf6) 50. f8=Q, not seeing that black has 49. .. Ke4 and will be two pawns v. B.
   Nov-24-20 Dvoirys vs G Feher, 1991 (replies)
drollere: <24.Qg5!! is supposed to be "Easy"?> yeah. Nxf6+ is a tempting exchange by itself since the bishop is more powerful on an open board. but pursuing it further (Qxf6; Rh8+, Qxh8 etc.) left black with a solitary Q against two R's and linked passed pawns, and e4 can't be ...
   Nov-23-20 Serper vs Barsov, 1988 (replies)
drollere: this was a puzzler for me. i had to wring out all the variations of R or Q xf6, Rb1, etc. before i found the obvious Bg8 (threatening mate), Rxg8, Qh6#.
   Nov-22-20 Lagno vs Ulibin, 2005 (replies)
drollere: and delving further off topic, this video about a young woman cheating, and the male officials' reaction to women's accusations of a woman cheating, is quite funny. as is hikaru nakamura's analysis/reaction. (hikaru is always amusing, even when he's trying to be serious.) ...
   Nov-21-20 G Kuzmin vs Alburt, 1971 (replies)
drollere: the first move was not hard; it's too passive to leave the QB where it is. i had assumed b1=Q would come next, with 29. Bxg7+ Kxg7, 30. Qc3+ e5, 31. dxe6+ Kh6, 32. Qe3+; but the best K move and the following piece trades were too complex for me to work out.
   Nov-19-20 J Gudmundsson vs O Neikirch, 1939 (replies)
drollere: i had 34. Nxe6+ fxe6, 35. Rxg8+ Kxg8, 36. Qxe6+ Kf8, 37. Qxg6, winning three pawns for the piece and flushing out the K.
   Nov-18-20 Bareev vs Kupreichik, 1990 (replies)
drollere: cute combination. i missed this one; i liked Ne6, as it threatens mate and reveals a pin on the N at f4, but i assumed black would reply with fxe6, as Nh5 is a quick kill for white.
   Nov-17-20 A Korobov vs S Fedorchuk, 2001 (replies)
drollere: sometimes a pin is worth a Q, and this was not hard to find. the combination works because black cannot recapture the B after 34. Bxf6, and because 34 .. Bxg3+ (or Qxg2+) cannot prevent mate.
