   Jun-27-22 B Starck vs D Bertholdt, 1962 (replies)
 
gawain: Mate delivered by a pawn after the queen self-sacrificially plunges into the Black king's neighborhood. A nice surprise! (I mean nice for a solver. Not nice at all for Black.)
 
   Jun-20-22 P Hoppner vs D Moody, 1979 (replies)
 
gawain: Finding a mating finish here is Easier Than Very Easy. It practically plays itself. Still, it's fun that there are different ways.
 
   Jun-13-22 A Ivanov vs M Taleb, 2003 (replies)
 
gawain: I agree with <TheaN>.
 
   May-30-22 Grob vs J Sanz Aguado, 1951 (replies)
 
gawain: "Lethal magnet"--I have not heard this phrase before, but it is perfect. I love it!
 
   May-16-22 R Safar vs I Agrest, 2008 (replies)
 
gawain: I thought I recognized this one from several years ago. And indeed I did!
 
   Apr-19-22 L Milov vs D Seyb, 2006 (replies)
 
gawain: I am in the same boat as <landshark>. I would have played 24 Bh6. It is only pure luck (for me) that this move allows the eventual saving move 26 Bc1. I did not even look to see if White was in any danger.
 
   Apr-18-22 B Katalymov vs G Ilivitsky, 1959 (replies)
 
gawain: Cute miniature. Poor Ilivitsky. Who drew the caricature on Ilivitsky's page? I would like to see more of his/her work. Georgy Ilivitsky .
 
   Apr-12-22 M Shapir (Porat) vs B Lengyel, 2008
 
gawain: (The immediate fork does win but is not the best move.)
 
   Apr-11-22 P Rejto vs E Schiller, 1983
 
gawain: The White King is trapped. At first glance the solution is obvious. Second glance, too. TGIM.
 
   Apr-05-22 A Becker vs H Mattison, 1929 (replies)
 
gawain: New level: Exceedingly Easy. Still it is possible to go wrong. One might foolishly try to show off with 31 Qf8+
