   Aug-13-23 Dolmatov vs Speelman, 1989 (replies)
master8ch: White could have saved a whole lot of time with 24. f3, since 24...Qc5+ gets Black nowhere after 25. Kh1, with c1 covered by the White Queen and mate threatened on g7. To stop said mate, Black has two equally miserable tries: 25. Queen back to f8, which is obviously met by 26. ...
   Jul-31-23 T Wibe vs O Sande, 1975 (replies)
master8ch: Looking past the puzzle at the game itself, Black could improve on 30...Qc4 with 30...Bb2+, which seams to win by queening on c1 and then giving up the Black Bishop and both Black Queens for both White Rooks before taking the White Queen on a4.
   May-20-23 S von Freymann vs Rubinstein, 1912 (replies)
master8ch: Lasker claims 19...Bxg4 is forced, giving 19...Qe6 as the only move to briefly guard the Bishop at f5. I claim 19...Qg6 wins for Black. I see no way for White to take timely advantage of Black's Q & K on the g-file, and if 20.Nh6+ Kh8, 21.Qf2, as in the game, Black has 21...Nd7, ...
   May-01-23 A Erigaisi vs J Vakhidov, 2023
master8ch: 21.Nh3 Qh7 22.Rg6
   Apr-26-23 G Seul vs Van Wely, 1999 (replies)
master8ch: I assumed 24.f6 was intended to keep Black's Queen cooped up, but I couldn't see a way to win it . . . until Black played 25...Nd7. White should then have played 26.Nc3, and if Black plays 26...Qe5, White takes the Queen check at g4.
   Mar-22-23 L Engels vs E Reinhardt, 1938 (replies)
master8ch: Maybe 50.b7 isn't as good as people think, since Black's last move, 53...Kc4, wouldn't be the blunder it is with his Bishop still on the board. But, as things now stand, White can queen his pawn and keep it, with 54.Nb6+ and 55.Nc8.
   Jan-11-23 M Pranesh vs E Amar, 2023 (replies)
master8ch: Wow! Like Black (evidently,) I thought White was doomed.
   Jan-03-23 T Villiers vs S Sulskis, 2022 (replies)
master8ch: 52...Rxa3+ either wins the White Bishop or, more likely, removes both bishops and leaves Black with three pawns (including a passer) to one, which should shorten the game considerably.
   Dec-18-22 Polgar vs M Hennigan, 1988
master8ch: 30.Bxg6 hxg6 31.f7+ Rxf7 32.Rh8+ Kxh8 33.Qxf7, and there's no good way to stop 34.Rh1++. (Neither faster nor better, but an interesting alternative.)
   Nov-02-22 NN vs Lasker / Maroczy, 1900 (replies)
master8ch: Why is this game included in a collection of losses by world champions if the champ didn't lose this one?
