   Nov-24-20 Dvoirys vs G Feher, 1991 (replies)
landshark: These Tuesdays are getting pretty tough - but I saw this one - 24.Qg5 with a variety of picturesque finishes if Black cooperates.... For instance: 24..... Re5 25.Rh8+ Bxh8 26.Qxd8+ Kg7 27.Qxh8#. Just one of several finishes it would be fun to get to play in a classical ...
   Nov-23-20 Serper vs Barsov, 1988 (replies)
landshark: <geeker> <Diademas> I wouldn't take it so hard - this is definitely not typical Monday material: First - no Q sac. Then you had to realize 25.Qh5 doesn't work. Then you have to see that the only way to really force the win is to jam the bishop into g8, which is ...
   Nov-19-20 J Gudmundsson vs O Neikirch, 1939 (replies)
landshark: I'm in good company with the mistake 37.Qxe6?? = Admittedly Haven't had my coffee yet, and seldom budget much time for late week puzzles here because they tend to be too tough to crack and a lot of time can go into that without a satisfactory end for me - But the line-busting ...
   Nov-18-20 Bareev vs Kupreichik, 1990 (replies)
landshark: This one blew me right out of my sneakers - I thought W was dead lost and looking at trying to hang on somehow with 28.Nf3?? It rarely works to try to solve anything later in the week than Tuesday at bedtime the night before and I should know better - Just goes to show how ...
   Nov-15-20 Ulibin vs Lautier, 1989 (replies)
landshark: Well.... I usually don't have much to report on Sunday puzzles, but this one was different: 14.Bxf7+ is a natural move and the first thing my eyes settled on. So were the next 3 moves after that. Which led to me looking at what would I do at move 18? I chose 18.Bf4 - and when I ...
   Nov-14-20 Kramnik vs Beliavsky, 1993 (replies)
landshark: I saw the idea and got the first move right but not the follow up: 19..... Qxe3+? 20.Kf1! and now if ....e4??? 21.Bc1 1-0
   Nov-12-20 Ftacnik vs A Aleksandrov, 2008 (replies)
landshark: For someone who regards himself <endgame challenged> I passed both tests this puzzle presented: First, the sham exchange sac to simplify, then the endgame puzzle after 33.f3. When I played thru the game as played, I wondered if my choice of 33....g4 was a mistake, but some ...
   Nov-10-20 P Van der Sterren vs V Malaniuk, 1987 (replies)
landshark: If you see a good move, look for a better one - I saw 27...Rg3+ and worked out the win with that, completely missing the cleaner and quicker ...Qe1+
   Oct-22-20 I Findlay vs L Day, 1980 (replies)
landshark: I thought 26.Rf2 would be played and Stockfish agrees. Then the game continues with B holding a good advantage but not a clearly forcing win.
   Oct-20-20 I Cheparinov vs O Salgado Lopez, 2003 (replies)
landshark: White's position at the start of this puzzle is like a dream come true - Black has zero counterplay, much less counterchances. Just look for where to apply the sword....
