   May-04-10 Gavrikov vs Gelfand, 1995 (replies)
 
hulkweazel: Got 31... Ne1 but missed 32... e5. It seems really silly now that I see the solution.
 
   Apr-29-10 Gligoric vs J Rosenstein, 1963 (replies)
 
hulkweazel: Easy when you see the queen and rook lined up along the e-file and the bishop on h-5.
 
   Apr-17-10 Petrosian vs Gligoric, 1959 (replies)
 
hulkweazel: I didn't look at all the variations but I got it after about 15 seconds. It's pretty easy when you see a mating attack with your rooks, but you need something to break up black's rooks and b6 is pretty much the only move you can do. Maybe there are different variations that make ...
 
   Apr-08-10 Kasparov vs P Nikolic, 1994 (replies)
 
hulkweazel: Yesterday's puzzle was definitely harder than today's. They should have switched the two around.
 
   Apr-04-10 Smyslov vs K Grigorian, 1976 (replies)
 
hulkweazel: Got this easily. Black's king is out of position and the e6 square would be a perfect fit for the queen - all we need to do is find a way to get her there. 21. Rxf6 Kxf6 22. Qg4 Qc5+ 23. Kh1 and black doesn't really have a good answer with Qe6, Bg5 and Rf1 all threatening the ...
 
   Apr-02-10 Smyslov vs C Kottnauer, 1946 (replies)
 
hulkweazel: Okay, so my sequence doesn't work, but you can still get equal material with 21. Qxd7, and after queens get traded it's R+B against R+B, with white still having an advantage because of black's exposed king and potential for a passed pawn. Zooter, I don't see why black doesn't ...
 
   Mar-29-10 Smyslov vs Lutikov, 1960 (replies)
 
hulkweazel: Gawain, just for clarification the knight fork does not win a piece because black will retake with his bishop. It does clear the board however, with white already with a slight material advantage.
 
   Mar-24-10 A Voltschok vs R Kreslavsky, 1970 (replies)
 
hulkweazel: cjgone, Black can take the knight but white will just reply with Rxd7, winning the queen. Of course, that's better than checkmate but still not in a very good position. I got this puzzle in about five seconds, it was like a monday puzzle for me. Easy to see the pin and discovered
 
   Mar-15-10 E J Diemer vs Portz, 1948 (replies)
 
hulkweazel: What was the point of 7... c6? I can't see any reason for it, especially when it weakens black's queen side pawn structure where black then tries to castle.
 
   Jan-13-10 Morphy vs Le Carpentier, 1849 (replies)
 
hulkweazel: 7. ...bf8 has to be one of the worst moves I have ever seen. 7. ...Nf6 is MUCH better and might have given a good game. Nice checkmate but the poor play by black makes the game not as impressive as a whole.
