   Nov-21-19 Savon vs Polugaevsky, 1971 (replies)
landshark: Only a single quiet move 34.Kg3 and mate is inevitable. The best defense ...Nd4 fails to 35.h4+ forcing the K to either ...Kh5 36.Rxh7# or ...Kf5 which stumbles into the square the N planned to interpose with and its 36.Re5#. The heavy piece + N against K in front of his own pawn ...

landshark: Never seen this one before and solved it. Something must be coming over me - I'm starting to spot those Q-sacs several moves deep into positions - something I've never been able to do before. Maybe I'm just setting myself up to whiff on the next Monday puzzle /:
   Nov-19-19 W Toikka vs T G Cook, 1987 (replies)
landshark: 17.hxg4 is classic example of following a bad move (16.g4?) with a worse one. My quick SF analysis suggests 17.Qd2 with only a -0.91 advantage for Black. Not a clear win for this Tuesday - but as the right move just jumps out I think it's a decent puzzle.
   Nov-12-19 Yusupov vs Dolmatov, 1987 (replies)
landshark: One of those Tuesdays where multiple (admittedly short) branches need to be examined before committing. When I finally realized the R on a7 had nowhere to go after 30.Rxc5 Nxc5 31.Qxc5 I felt I had got it - 30... Ra8 or b7 loses to BxR, c7 is covered by the Q, d7 fails to 31.Qc8#,
   Nov-07-19 A Firouzja vs M Bluebaum, 2017 (replies)
landshark: I rejected the game continuation because a Q vs 2 R's is rarely a win, much less a convincing one.
   Nov-04-19 P K Seuffert vs Blackburne, 1894 (replies)
landshark: Interesting that the position that results after correctly solving today's puzzle is a draw with correct play. Which confirmed my suspicions - without delving too deep into it after winning the Q for R+N it felt to me that White's excellently placed minor pieces would be excellent
   Oct-15-19 Alekhine vs Tylor, 1937 (replies)
landshark: I saw the tactic right away but struggled with the resulting endgame, missing the motif of sacrificing the passer on d6 in order to mow down black's remaining queenside pawns.
   Oct-10-19 Carlsen vs Kuzubov, 2019 (replies)
landshark: Funny - So did I
   Oct-09-19 F Vallejo Pons vs N Huschenbeth, 2010 (replies)
landshark: Because this was a puzzle I saw the solution quite quickly - but OTB in G15 format which is what I usually play, this is the type of opportunity I often miss -
   Sep-22-19 Kiril D Georgiev vs Dlugy, 1983 (replies)
landshark: Insane starting position - looks like something I might get into in a blitz game when playing at the absolute top of my game. Insane game too - And apparently an insane 'solution' as well.
