   Apr-21-22 P Sinton vs Ken Pow, 1989
 
pittpanther: Regarding 6....dxc4. I have played the French a lot over the last 30 years and this move basically helps white by fixing his pawn problems as noted by other posters. It is not necessarily losing by black but there are many other more dynamic moves that keep the tension.

pittpanther: I had 21 ...Nxg5 which also seems to be quite good for black. I do see how 21 .... ef opens up some other very good possibilities for black.

pittpanther: i’m relieved to see I’m not the only one who struggled with this puzzle. I thought this was much harder than a typical Wednesday. but an interesting position!

pittpanther: More Tuesday level

pittpanther: So, do I get credit for this... If 35 Kxe4 I intended to play Qf4+. 36 Kd3 Bg6 (rather than Qd4 mate) 37. Kc3 Qd4 38. Kb4 a5 39. Ka3 Qa1 ++. My sequence does lead to mate, though much longer than 36 ...Qd4++.

pittpanther: Saw the first moves. I have played the French for years so I am happy to see the black side of a French as the position of the day!
 
   Nov-02-21 Tiviakov vs Ponomariov, 2001 (replies)
 
pittpanther: I spent several minutes trying to figure out how white wins - then realized it is black to move!
 
   Oct-28-21 Adorjan vs K Hulak, 1977 (replies)
 
pittpanther: Dating my self a bit here but I actually own "Black is OK!" and purchased it when it first came out. I caught the pun immediately. I did not fare as well with the puzzle! :)

pittpanther: Goodevans, if black takes the knight (17. h5 Bxg5 then just push 18 h6 and black has no defense
