   Nov-27-23 Yagupov vs D Lam, 2019 (replies)
landshark: Of course look for a Q-sac. Even if Move One is the type of move your brain is hard-wired to ignore: You 'can't' play 27.Qd5+ because it's guarded by a pawn, you dummy!! I forgot it was Monday and spent 10 minutes trying to make more prosaic sacrifices work - finally a light ...
   Nov-07-23 M Pap vs J Lampert, 2012 (replies)
landshark: Saw that right away = faster than usual even for a Monday
   Nov-03-23 N Salimova vs A Muzychuk, 2023 (replies)
landshark: The position looked ripe for d5 and I was right - 18.d5 Gotta get one's own material out of the way of the heavy artillery positioned on e1 and d1. Bombs Away!
   Nov-01-23 Gligoric vs N Gaprindashvili, 1964 (replies)
landshark: <Catlover> Nona G was a beast in her time - I think Agadmator did a piece on her during the time when Queen's Gambit had just come out - she was rudely 'dissed' in the movie and Antonio shed some interesting light on her career, the difficulty she had even getting to play ...
   Oct-19-23 Dubov vs Giri, 2019 (replies)
landshark: Typo: 19.O-O-O
   Oct-17-23 Duda vs D Anton Guijarro, 2022
landshark: Nxa5 - It took me 3-4 minutes to see that if the Q recaptures on a5 then we play b4 (rumored to be the strongest move in virtually any position) and the black Q is squished.
   Oct-13-23 Suba vs I Cheparinov, 2002 (replies)
landshark: Same as <KAB> 32... Qd2 seems to do the trick, although not as elegantly as ...Bc2+. What does the engine say about this?
   Sep-18-23 L De Veauce vs J N Sugden, 1971 (replies)
landshark: <Cecco> I wouldn't have spotted your brilliant 45.Qxf6+ in a month of Sundays. That's a beautiful move! Fortunately for me I saw the game line with the quick mate (:
   Aug-14-23 J Diez del Corral vs A Medina Garcia, 1978 (replies)
landshark: In my sleepy haze I couldn't see what was so great about 31.Qd5. Visualization capability is the first thing that goes when I'm tired (or hungry, distracted,____ you name it). Tuesday's another day (:
   Jul-27-23 Jansa vs P Troeger, 1961 (replies)
landshark: Rather than the game continuation, I had 14. Nxf6+ Bxf6 15. Nxf7 Kxf7 16. Qxe6+ Kf8 17. Bg6 .... Which leaves B in a dilemma. At first, I thought 17... Qe7 (which I missed during calculation but spotted right away when playing it through) would save him, but after 18. Rd3 ...
