   Jun-30-20 H Pfleger vs G Mazzoni, 1966 (replies)
 
goodevans: Today's puzzle has generated a lot of interest even if it is flawed. <mel gibson>'s post begs the question what the intended solution was actually supposed to be. I guess finding <21.Rxg7 Kxg7 22.Nc6 Ne4 23.Rg1+ Kh7 24.Bd3 Rg8 25.Rxg8 Rxg8 26.Nxe7 Rg1+ 27.Qd1 Rxd1+ ...

goodevans: 365Chess.com has 219 games with <10...Qb8> scoring +110 =32 -77 to white, which isn't all that bad for black. On the other hand it only has two games with <11...a5> both of them won by white.

goodevans: <devere: [...] White's 13th move should have been fxe4, and then Black has only a small advantage.> <Brenin: 11 ... e3, threatening Bd2+ followed by e2, looks like a better plan than 11 ... Be7...> Maybe black set a trap and white just fell right into it. If this were ...
 
   Jun-25-20 Spassky vs Seirawan, 1985 (replies)
 
goodevans: [DIAGRAM] The need to defend against mates on both b7 and c7 means that black <really does have nothing better than> 17...Rxd4 18.Rae1 Rxf4 (19.Qb5+ Ka8 20.Qc6+ Kb8) 21.Rxe7 Bxe7.

goodevans: Nice pun - Game Collection: Black is OK! by Andras Adorjan
 
   Jun-23-20 I Rabinovich vs Goglidze, 1939 (replies)
 
goodevans: <yiotta: Does this qualify as a help-mate?> 22...Ne4?? was certainly very, very bad but moving the other N would have been even worse.
 
   Jun-21-20 Gipslis vs Csom, 1973 (replies)
 
goodevans: <Cheapo by the Dozen: Another bad puzzle; the engine thinks there's a winning move, while the game line takes White to a disadvantage.> I agree that this is another bad puzzle. It matters not a jot that Gipslis failed to find a winning move, what makes this a bad puzzle is ...
 
   Jun-18-20 Riumin vs Rauzer, 1929 (replies)
 
goodevans: Riumin tries to hide inside a carapace but Rauzer prises it open in spectacular fashion.
 
   Jun-17-20 C Crouch vs J Ambroz, 1991 (replies)
 
goodevans: <Predrag3141: It looks like 17 c3 would have held things together for White...> And maybe a few other moves would have too. The thing is that the innocent looking <17.b3> had a fatal flaw. Black's <17...Ne4> puts pressure on the white position (particularly at ...
 
   Jun-17-20 J Houska vs A Harley, 2001 (replies)
 
goodevans: <An Englishman: Good Evening: 8.0-0 looks like a gambit; Black could have played 8...Nxe2+ and it appears that he wins a pawn in all variations. Would White have enough compensation after 9.Qxe2,Bxc3; 10.bxc3,Qxc3?> Good question. According to the Opening Explorer this ...
