   Mar-25-11 Lasker / Wolf vs Allies, 1934 (replies)
kutuzov: <Zan> I was thinking the same thing about 12 Nxd2. Initially I thought there may be scenario where white lost a piece, but it doesn't seem to exist. It leads to a drawish position, but I'll take that over the debacle that followed.
   Mar-18-11 L'Ami vs I Sokolov, 2008 (replies)
kutuzov: Hmm. I wanted to play Rd7+ right away Something like... 26. Nf6+ Ke7 27. Rd7+ Kxf6 28. Qh5 ...but then there's that whole 28...Qc3# thing. Looks like picking up the knight is as good as it gets for some of the lines. Kind of disappointing.
   Mar-18-11 Ivanchuk vs Kasparov, 1991 (replies)
kutuzov: ...actually, now that I think about it, the move isn't THAT audacious. But still.
   Mar-04-11 B Socko vs Naiditsch, 2008 (replies)
kutuzov: This isn't so much a "puzzle solution" as it is "taking more pieces off the board." Black will probably go a pawn up with Bishop-Knight versus the Rook but there's a lot more chess to be played.
   Feb-27-11 G Grigore vs F Holzke, 1993 (replies)
kutuzov: Got the jist of this one. I saw Rxd4, the bishop check afterwards, that Kf6 was swiftly met with e5+, and that capturing the bishop led to Rd5 followed by doubling the rooks. Didn't even bother to look at Ke8. It seemed like a losing move, but there is a little more nuance than I ...
   Feb-25-11 Kotronias vs D Xiu, 2011 (replies)
kutuzov: That's just a ridiculous opening. I don't even know what to call that mutated Sicilian. The delayed 7...e5 turns it into some abortion of a Najdorf with the bishop hemmed in. I would have taken my marbles and gone home with 8.Nf3 which, as far as I can see, leads to a pretty good ...
   Feb-25-11 Tal vs Teslenko, 1964 (replies)
kutuzov: @Sastre, I think after 21.Bd3, the capture hxg5 might become "safe." 21...hxg5 22 Qh5+ Kg8 23.Qh7+ Kf7 ...and I don't see a knockout blow. even after... 24 fxg5+ Ke8 White has a better position but they are approximately equal on material. Qxg7 is met with Nf5. That h pawn ...
   Feb-25-11 M Czerniak vs K Langeweg, 1966 (replies)
kutuzov: Yeah Qh3 is definitely the better option to Qe4. I wouldn't say you were wrong, Gropek. After 26. Rd6, the queen may not have to go back to c2, but there isn't much black can do. Even if he does something pointless like a5, the Nxh7-Rh6 maneuver works. If 30...Qd6, then 31.Ng5+ with
   Apr-19-10 Taimanov vs Lisitsin, 1949 (replies)
kutuzov: Is there a way to develop the queenside besides the tedious Rb8 maneuver? Something like 14...Nc4?
   May-16-08 Karpov vs Short, 2002 (replies)
kutuzov: 12...Bg6 and I think Karpov can fairly easily play 13. Qa4+, transposing into endgame with an extra pawn.
