   Feb-14-11 Pillsbury vs Maroczy, 1900 (replies)
mrvocab: So let me see. For the puzzle of the day on Valentine's Day, we have a game featuring Harry Pillsbury, who's life was cut short by syphilis. You have a strange sense of humor, Chessgames.
   Mar-26-07 K Papas vs I Krasenkova, 2001 (replies)
mrvocab: If this were bughouse I would play 33. Nb6# !
   Sep-20-06 Eliskases vs Hoelzl, 1929 (replies)
mrvocab: Looks like interference is the theme of the week.
   Aug-08-06 Schlechter vs H Wolf, 1906 (replies)
mrvocab: Amazing how the players knew about the Alekhine Variation of the Slav Defense even before Alekhine himself!
   May-09-06 Bronstein vs Shamkovich, 1961 (replies)
mrvocab: 38. g6 also wins quite nicely.
   Mar-06-06 M Guid vs M Cebalo, 2004 (replies)
mrvocab: The game was more or less even until 23. Qxd4, after which it was ( ). Better for White would have been 23. Rxd4 =.

mrvocab: Here's the forced mate if White plays 23. Qxe6: 23...Rxg2+ 24. Kh1 Rg4+ 25. Kh2 Rxh4+ 26. Kg1 Rh1#. The pattern combines a windmill with a R+B mate. Of course, White can give up his queen for the rook instead of 23. Qxe6, which should be an easy win for Black.
   Oct-11-05 Sutovsky vs Chandler, 2000 (replies)
mrvocab: What the heck is the Nyezhmetdinov-Rossolimo Attack? 3.Bb5?
   Aug-01-05 Reshevsky vs Larsen, 1971 (replies)
mrvocab: Note that there is a smother mate follow on: 37...Qh4, 38. Qxe6+ Kh8 39. Nf7+ Kg8 40. Nh6+ Kh8 41. Qg8+ Rxg8 42. Nf7#
   Jul-13-05 M Cuellar Gacharna vs Reshevsky, 1967 (replies)
mrvocab: All hail the powerful f5 bishop! White's mating variations wouldn't work without that very well placed bishop on f5 covering h7 and d7. In 42...R8xe4 43. Qxg5+ 44. Qg7+ Ke8, the d7 escape square is covered by the f5 bishop in 45. Qg8#. And in the variation 42...Rxd2 43. Rxe8#, the ...
