   Dec-04-19 Saemisch vs A Medina Garcia, 1943
gawain: Like some others I was caught by the temptation to follow up the knight sacrifice with action along the g-file (...Rg6+).
   Dec-02-19 Didier vs Marshall, 1900
gawain: <scormus> Funny!
   Nov-26-19 Prins vs E Paoli, 1949 (replies)
gawain: Whew! I'm glad it was not only me. I could not see anything winning Tuesday-level for White at move 22. I thought I was losing my marbles. White to win at either move 32 or 33 would be a decent Tuesday puzzle.
   Nov-25-19 N Padevsky vs I Asmundsson, 1957 (replies)
gawain: After 15 Qxg8 Nxg8 16 h7 Black cannot stop the pawn. Nifty combination.
   Nov-21-19 Savon vs Polugaevsky, 1971 (replies)
gawain: Beautiful finish. I like that Polugaevsky played through to allow the mate to appear on the board.
   Nov-20-19 Vidmar vs Euwe, 1929 (replies)
gawain: What a delightful finish! I don't recall having seen this game before.
   Nov-19-19 W Toikka vs T G Cook, 1987 (replies)
gawain: Easy enough to see how Black wins after 16...Bxg4 17 hxg4 Nxg4+ etc. I was bothered by the fact that White can refuse to capture the bishop. But even then White's position is pretty bad.
   Nov-18-19 G Daskalov vs N Padevsky, 1970 (replies)
gawain: I thought 32 Qh6 would be as good but I missed the defense 32...g6.
   Nov-04-19 P K Seuffert vs Blackburne, 1894
gawain: Hard for a Monday. I spent time searching for a more conclusively winning combination. What we can say for this one is that it is clever and game-saving. Not bad.
   Oct-29-19 A Strikovic vs Suba, 1994 (replies)
gawain: What a beautiful puzzle! At first the Black attack looks entirely unpromising. I did not even see anything plausible for Black to try. Then the queen "sacrifice" emerged, which (when accepted) led to a back rank check, which miraculously made it possible for the useless-looking ...
