mike1: Happy 2020 everyone. cannot deny, its very disappointing that there is a world championship match going on and nothing to do (bet) for us.
   Dec-15-19 Navara vs R Wojtaszek, 2015 (replies)
mike1: I don't think there is much to this puzzle as White could play 32.Kg8 to avoid any mate. AND nothing is forced after Rxf2 Rxf2 either. Should have been a draw either way. Interesting game though and Navara deserves a medal for trying to win and winning!
   Nov-17-19 Szabo vs V Tukmakov, 1970 (replies)
mike1: Great fight and a worthy game of the day. But an insane puzzle? I don't think so. Black has to play Rxd6 and everything else is not forced at all.
   Nov-10-19 GCT Bucharest Rapid & Blitz (2019) (replies)
mike1: well.... two " wild cards" are leading this event. No matter what happens in the last rounds, well picked!
   Nov-06-19 J K Duda vs I Nepomniachtchi, 2019 (replies)
mike1: 23....e4. Makes you wonder what happened there. Overlooking Qxg7??? Nd5 and white is only a tick better
   Aug-29-19 Sinquefield Cup (2019) (replies)
mike1: a good player is always lucky
   Aug-11-19 Caruana vs Carlsen, 2019 (replies)
mike1: hmmm.Once in a while Magnus is really playing it too much in the dynamic way. pawn structures do count (once in a while).
   Aug-05-19 A Coles vs J T Westbrock, 1951 (replies)
mike1: it is ok to be greedy.... just play 14..Qb5+ and white needs to find c4 to be even a touch better. SF: 15.c4 Qxc4+ 16.Kf3 Nd7 17.Nxg7+ Kf8 18.Qh6 Nxf6 19.Nf5+ Ke8 20.Nd6+ Ke7 21.Nxc4 Nxe4 22.Kxe4 Be6 23.Qg5+ Kf8 24.Qc5+ Kg7 25.Nd6 h6 26.Qe5+ Kh7 27.Ke3 b6 28.Qe4+ Kg7 29.f4 Rhd8
   Jul-25-19 P Maghsoodloo vs J Cori, 2019
mike1: white played a 1-minute game again....
   Jul-23-19 J Cori vs S Bogner, 2019 (replies)
mike1: 8. cxd5 seems to be a new approach... c5 was played before and the engines play it as well... but opening the position looks better to me (that Ra7 is horribly placed)
