   Jun-12-07 Hort vs V Zheliandinov, 1967 (replies)
imatos: 11. ... O-O-O was what I call a cheap trap. :-) Strange that a serious player like Zheliandinov tried selling such a bad trick to a GM of Hort's caliber.
   May-28-07 Tarrasch vs Schroeder, 1894 (replies)
imatos: There's an error in the diagram on the front page! It shows an additional white knight on f3. I hope that the staff will fix it by the time you're reading this. :-) But with or without this knight, this is the hardest Monday in quite a while. Not only are there several ...
   May-08-07 K Spraggett vs C P Santos, 2000 (replies)
imatos: imatos: <Zaius: This isn't the easiest puzzle yet because of this line: 34. Bxh6+ Kh8 35. Qxf8+ Ng8 36. Bg5! followed next move by Bf6+ and a mate in two.> But 36. ♗g5 isn't necessary to win in that variation. Pretty much any sane-looking move wins easily ...
   May-05-07 Makarichev vs A Sokolov, 1982 (replies)
imatos: <dzechiel: It appears I was right with my gut instinct, but totally wrong with my analysis of the position (especially my "endgame" comment). Boy it's depressing to spend all that time looking at the wrong stuff.> However, please don't let that discourage you from further ...
   May-03-07 Ragozin vs Boleslavsky, 1942 (replies)
imatos: <MostlyAverageJoe:> So, the question is -- was 15. ♗h6!? the best move after all? Apparently it leads to a small, but hardly decisive advantage for White. For what that's worth, Crafty doesn't even consider it as a candidate and prefers 15. b3, although that one doesn't ...
   May-02-07 Janowski vs Bogoljubov, 1914 (replies)
imatos: <TrueBlue: 18. Bxf6 Bxf6 19. Bxh7+ Kh8 20. Qh5 Bg5 21. Bg6+ Bh6 22. Bxf7 Rcxf7 23. Nxf7+ Rxf7 24. Qxf7 Bxe3 25. fxe3 is what I found. No mate, but winning eventually. My guess is that you need to have seen at least 21. .. Bh6 to claim full credit ...> I agree! And while this ...
   Apr-27-07 Josef Nun vs R Mozny, 1978 (replies)
imatos: <MostlyAverageJoe: Frankly, I am not particularly thrilled with today's puzzle. The overloading of black queen, the rather clear mating prospects on g7 and on the back rank (and don't forget the black rook being glued to the C-file to prevent white from Bc4) all inevitably push ...

imatos: <tanuri: His practice was to set the pieces randomly on board and look for combiantions, lol!> I would say that's a quite reasonable way to practice chess. It's certainly a method far superior to what many people are erroneously doing (like e.g. studying openings in depth while
   Apr-24-07 Capablanca vs T A Carter, 1909 (replies)
imatos: <MORPHY MARVELLOUS: Man what I would give for a Rybka vs Capablanca match off right now. [...] I cant help but feel that Capablanca might be the only player from the great history of our game to have a chance against this immovable object that is Rybka.> A patzer like me ...
   Apr-23-07 Chigorin vs Pillsbury, 1895 (replies)
imatos: <dzechiel: This puzzle has a little more to it than the typical Monday!> Definitely! I'd say this one would be more like a typical Tuesday.
