   Dec-17-07 H Bohm vs Roman Hernandez, 1979 (replies)
 
greystar69: I agree with your analysis <lifemate> since 13.f3 Nh3+ 14.gxh3 Qxe3+ 15.Rf2 Bc5 is followed by a series of exchanges leading to an endgame where black was won the exchange and is a pawn up. Not totally obvious for a Monday puzzle and not everyone who can solve a Monday ...

greystar69: I also started with 24. Re3 Qb4, but then played 25. Ba3 Qb1+ 26. Kd2 Qb6 Surely white can make something of this attack . . . but it is not as clear cut as the solution.
 
   Apr-28-07 P Poutiainen vs Timman, 1975 (replies)
 
greystar69: Has anyone analysed the lines which follow 27. Re6?! I spent quite a while trying to bust Timman open with this one and I still haven't talked myself out of it yet
 
   Apr-07-06 Sliwa vs Stoltz, 1953 (replies)
 
greystar69: Nb7 is one of the most sublime and elegant moves I have seen in a long time. Chess just keeps on giving.
 
   Aug-31-05 Nunn vs J A Sutton, 1984 (replies)
 
greystar69: Is there any reason why exf6 cannot be played before Qxh7?
 
   Aug-22-05 J Levitt vs Speelman, 2005 (replies)
 
greystar69: How can this game be agreed drawn at such an early stage? Yes, the position is equal, but there is still much to play - white even still has an undeveloped bishop. I also wonder if this exact game has been played before.
 
   Aug-10-05 Short vs Timman, 1991 (replies)
 
greystar69: How does play proceed if Timman plays 31. ... Bc8?
 
   Aug-09-05 J Gonzalez Garcia vs G Mahia, 2003 (replies)
 
greystar69: I thought 54. Ke4 was quite a nice move. Blacks King is as far away from his pawns as he can be and white just gets into position to gobble them all up, rather than trying to push the connected passed pawns.
 
   Jul-06-05 Galego vs S Fedorchuk, 2005 (replies)
 
greystar69: What was the reasoning behind 30...Kf8. Is black simply positioning his King better to tackle the white passed pawn in an endgame? It is this move which lets the white Queen in and eventually winkling the black king out.
 
   May-23-05 P Ricardi vs G Milos, 2001 (replies)
 
greystar69: Actually, I believe that an X-Ray is just another name for a skewer. A skewer is an attack on a weaker piece blocked by one which is stronger - if the stronger moves aside, the weaker is captured. This position is not a skewer, and therefore not an X-ray. Definition is also given
