   Jan-04-23 G Piesina vs A Butnorius, 2006 (replies)
pittpanther: I saw 24.... Bxd4 25. Qxd4 Re1 26. Kf2 but then missed 26....Rxd1 but planned to play 26....Nxc3 and after the recapture on c3 then play Rxd1. Seems that also wins. Not sure why I skipped over Rxd1 before playing Nxc3.
   Dec-19-22 J F Cubas vs D Mastrovasilis, 2014 (replies)
pittpanther: I saw the win of the queen for a rook but even after white wins the two pawns it will still take some technique to win the game.
   Dec-05-22 A Kubbel vs Ragozin, 1929 (replies)
pittpanther: I went with Qf2 which seems to win pretty handily. Does not seem to be a true Monday puzzle (or my puzzle abilities are rapidly diminishing!)
   Oct-13-22 H Koller vs C Di Caro, 2004 (replies)
pittpanther: Like others noted - I must be improving in my old age to get a Thursday so quickly! 😃
   Aug-15-22 A Moran Nuque vs E Pupo, 1995 (replies)
pittpanther: Like others I thought this was hard for Monday. I solved it but I had to take a few minutes. I would rate it more Tuesday or possibly Wednesday level.
   Aug-08-22 P Foo vs P Garbett, 1984 (replies)
pittpanther: 33....Rxh3+ is a nice puzzle move for early in the week.
   Jun-27-22 F Parr vs R G Wade, 1962 (replies)
pittpanther: I am sorry to hear that <Phony Benoni> has passed. I have enjoyed reading his posts over the many years I have been on this site.
   Jun-22-22 B Finegold vs K Sorenson, 1982 (replies)
pittpanther: I had the same line as FM David H. Levin noted above (Qc7 followed by Rc6) and stopped there since it was a forced win. Did not look further at the Bc6 line.
   May-27-22 F La Rota vs B Finegold, 1988 (replies)
pittpanther: I used to play speed chess with Finegold when I lived in Michigan. Even though I was rated about 2300 at the time and was especially strong in speed chess he crushed me consistently. He has very good tactical awareness. Nice to see one of his games.
   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.
