   Aug-31-10 M Narciso Dublan vs Kryvoruchko, 2008 (replies)
jfshade: Great puzzle, both for the stalemate/perp check trap after e1=Q and the range of winning moves. I agree with <once>: "But when stalemates are in the air, it pays to carry on checking." Even though I thought e1=N or e1=R should win, I was glad to find the forced mating sequence
   Jul-13-10 R Vera vs J Becerra Rivero, 1996 (replies)
jfshade: Thanks <twice> <once>: First for the dramatization, and second for the insight on 31. Nf5+. I found the puzzle easy to solve, but when I played through the game, my reaction to 31. Nf5+ was similar to <Suffering Bruin>'s: how do I "see" a move like that during a ...
   Jun-25-10 K Lerner vs Dorfman, 1980 (replies)
jfshade: <YouRang:...I didn't get the solution, but I got the instruction. Thank you> Seconded - thanks everybody.
   Mar-31-10 Portisch vs Smyslov, 1964 (replies)
jfshade: Another elegant endgame from the master; the solution was a bit quicker to see than yesterday's, for me. I can't recommend "Smyslov's 125 Selected Games" highly enough. He was a brilliant annotator.
   Nov-13-09 L Milman vs J Fang, 2005 (replies)
jfshade: <VincentL: I solved this in about three minutes, I think. But I just wonder if I would have done so had I not seen the previous two days' puzzles. Immediately I was looking to put the queen in some unusual place. I saw this was not possible on the first move, and as the white ...
   Nov-10-09 U Boensch vs V Antonov, 1981 (replies)
jfshade: I was just asking myself the same question. 14. ... Nxe3 is a puzzling choice also.
   Nov-09-09 Reichert vs E J Diemer, 1950 (replies)
jfshade: 22. Nxe7 = ouch
   Oct-15-09 E Berg vs Leko, 1995 (replies)
jfshade: Well, it jumped out at me pretty quickly that the only thing preventing the Re8 Nh5 mate was that Knight, and that Qxd5 would either decoy it off or else win the P and leave the white Q in a good attacking spot. But after spending a lot of time running through variations following ...
   Aug-24-09 Gheorghiu vs Liu Wenzhe, 1982 (replies)
jfshade: <gallard: A number of comments about White laying the trap...I doubt it since he could have made the Queen move on the prior move #23 instead of h4!!> No - getting the white Queen off the a6-f1 diagonal is the key here. If 23...Qg1+, then 24. Kxg1 Re1+ 25. Qf1 Rxf1+ 26. ...
   Aug-18-09 V Manko vs Jankowitz, 1900 (replies)
jfshade: Looks like a Monday to me.
