drollere: it's intriguing to see that so many kibitzers (1) ignore the editorial statement of the goal in the puzzle solution -- "The goal is to find the best move, or sequence of moves, in the given position" in favor of their personal definition of the goal -- and then (2) argue that their
   Nov-29-21 I Madl vs J Horvath, 1999 (replies)
drollere: i had 45. Qxg6 fxg6, 46. Re6 Qxe6, 47. Rxe6+ Kc7, 48. Rxf6 and white wins the piece and the g pawn.
   Nov-28-21 Saidy vs J Becerra Rivero, 2005 (replies)
drollere: i had 24. .. Rxh2, 25. Kxh2 Qh8+, 26. Kg3 Qg7+, 27. Kh2 Qh6+, 28. Kg3 Qg5+, 29. Kh3 Bf5+, 30. Kh2 g1=Q+, 31. Rxg1 Qh4+, 32. Kg2 Qh3# . move 30 was not obvious at move 25.
   Nov-27-21 Kudrin vs H A Machado Jr, 1988 (replies)
drollere: curiously, my earlier post does not appear. too much turkey, perhaps. i had 20. Bxh7+ Kxh7, 21. Qh5+ Kg8, 22. Bf6 but left off there because i was unsure how black would reply. (22. .. pxf6 leads to 23. Qg4+ and 24. Rh5#.)
   Nov-25-21 E Prandstetter vs Ftacnik, 1986 (replies)
drollere: didn't get this one. i blame it on the turkey stuffing.
   Nov-24-21 Kogan vs Paunovic, 2010 (replies)
drollere: with the threat of Qxb2#, white requires forcing moves: 31. Rxh6+ gxh6, 32. g7+ Kh7, 33. Ng5+ hxg5, 34. Rh1+ Kxg7, 35. Qg6#
   Nov-23-21 H Munoz Sotomayor vs R Gonzalez, 1998 (replies)
drollere: since the white Q guards h5, i had 36. .. Be3+. if 37. Qxe3 Qh5+, 38. Kf4 Qf5# ... if 37. Kg4 Qh5#.
   Nov-21-21 Alterman vs D Rogic, 1998
drollere: i like that the opponent is forced to win the exchange in order to create a potent pawn phalanx. very complex yet precise combination.
   Nov-17-21 Yifan Hou vs M Sebag, 2011 (replies)
drollere: i had 30. Qxh6+ Bxh6, 31. Rxh6+ Kg7, 32. f8=Q+ Kxf8, 33. Rh8#. unusual, but then all kinds of unusual happens when your K is out swimming in pawn flotsam.
   Nov-14-21 Psakhis vs Paunovic, 1986 (replies)
drollere: as i recall, <plonk the bishop> is either doctrine out of nimzowitch or something lasker innovated in his coffeehouse jousts.
