   Jan-06-18 R Loetscher vs Bluebaum, 2016 (replies)
plumbst: <al_wazir> 29.Nc2 cxd4. The e-pawn and Rook are overworked, and the other capture 30.Nxd4 e5 leads to a fatal opening of lines.
   Jan-05-18 Ivanchuk vs Dreev, 1987 (replies)
plumbst: I chose the boring 27.Rce1 to win but 27.Qg5! is prettier. If Black accepts the sacrifice then after 27...Kxe6 28.Re1+ Ne5 29.Rxe5+ Kd7 30.Qxg7 or 29...Kd6 30.Rxd5+ Ke6 31.Qe3+ Kf7 32.Rf5+ Ke8 33.Nxc8+ he loses massive material.
   Oct-12-17 Smirin vs B Kurajica, 1993 (replies)
plumbst: 20.? or 21.? would make good late-week puzzles.
   Jul-17-17 B Savchenko vs Ivanchuk, 2016 (replies)
plumbst: <al wazir> No perpetual since f8 is guarded. 33.Qxe4 Qxh2 is an easy win anyway.
   May-25-17 Kasparov vs Bacrot, 2004 (replies)
plumbst: <radtop> for the reason <Walter Glattke> mentioned, 66.Kf4 f6 67.h5+ Kh6! holds, otherwise White makes no progress. Once one realizes that then the triangulation move 66.Kf3! becomes more obvious.
   May-23-17 B Savchenko vs A Kostin, 2007 (replies)
plumbst: Easy. White is down a bishop and a pawn. It seems Black has enough defenders, but White has a great finisher. 26.Qg6!! Black is mated after 26...Rg8 27.Qxh6+ Rg7 28.Qxg7# or 26...fxg6 27.Ne6+ Kg8 28.Rg7#.
   Oct-20-16 Smirin vs Y Afek, 1992 (replies)
plumbst: I've already seen this game (I believe it was one of favorite books, Modern Chess Miniatures by Neil McDonald?) but this shows the dangers of neglecting development. White wins on the spot with 8.Qe5! After 8...f6 9.Nc7+ Kf7 10.Qd5+ e6 11.Nxe6 Black should resign to save himself ...
   Oct-09-16 V Belous vs Z Almasi, 2015 (replies)
plumbst: Does White have a clear win after 33...Bxf2? I saw 29.Nxe5 quickly but opted for 30.Bf4 instead, 30...Qc3 31.Rec1 looks good for White. Perhaps this line is an improvement?
   Oct-06-16 Tseitlin vs V Karasev, 1982 (replies)
plumbst: In the main line 29...Qxh5 30.Bxf6 Rxb8 31.Rxb8 Ra8 White has the clever move 32.f3! winning the Bishop, because 32...Bd5 33.Rxa8 Bxa8 34.Qb8 g5 35.Qh8+ Kg6 36.g4 leads to mate.
   Oct-05-16 N Batsiashvili vs N Zhukova, 2015 (replies)
plumbst: I got 22...Nc1! but was stuck on 23.Re1. The solution is 23...Ne2+ 24.Kh2 Rd2! trapping the Queen.
