   Nov-23-20 Serper vs Barsov, 1988 (replies)
 
geeker: Nice Monday puzzle. I took an embarrassingly long time to find 25. Bg8.
 
   Nov-10-20 Van der Sterren vs V Malaniuk, 1987 (replies)
 
geeker: "At first I thought 26...Bg1+ 27.Kxg1 Rxg3+" Me too. :(
 
   Oct-14-20 Volha Malatsilava vs E Diakonova, 2018 (replies)
 
geeker: "Thought that White would play 28.Kc1, which offers a swindling chance or two." Very surprised W didn't play that.
 
   Oct-12-20 Daniel Abbas vs E Inarkiev, 2017 (replies)
 
geeker: Bravo, Che! I was hoping the Q sac on h3 worked but no, it had to be the Rook.
 
   Sep-15-20 Ziatdinov vs D Gurevich, 1995 (replies)
 
geeker: 26...Nb3+ is the most forcing discovery because it's a double check, so let's start there. Then the (near) smothered mate with 27. Kb1 Qc1+ 28. R:c1 Ncd2# is pretty clear.
 
   Sep-07-20 Feldman vs Korchnoi, 1953 (replies)
 
geeker: Monday, but no Queen to sac...how can we profitably give up material? First candidate: 48...R:e4 and Queen the b-pawn. It works!
 
   Aug-21-20 Yusupov vs K Spraggett, 1989 (replies)
 
geeker: Funny, first move that came to mind was 37. g6, but I discarded it in favor of 37. Bf5+ e:f5, overlooking 37...g6. :)
 
   Aug-12-20 McShane vs D Howell, 2017 (replies)
 
geeker: Black threatens mate in 1, so White has to check. 34. R:g6+ is the only check, so that must be the move. Then not hard to see that it leads to mate.
 
   Mar-31-20 Carlsen vs Bu Xiangzhi, 2017 (replies)
 
geeker: Got 36...Rg1 right away, first candidate move and most forcing.
 
   Mar-21-20 Dolmatov vs Browne, 1990 (replies)
 
geeker: I had seen this game in Browne's excellent book "The stress of chess...", game 76. Got the game line from 24...R:c3 through 27 R:c2. Browne's annotations don't give himself any exclams in that line until 27...h6!
