raymondhow: After getting the first three moves, I blanked out on the simple 22.Bc6, wanted to play 22.Rc7 instead. Still winning, but not sure I deserve full credit.

raymondhow: Isn't two weeks a bit soon to be repeating a Monday puzzle?
   Jun-19-22 Murey vs R Ravisekhar, 1986 (replies)
raymondhow: I got the first two moves to feel like a contender, but then chose 24.Rh8+, a real clunker as it turns out.

raymondhow: I chose the first six moves, then wanted to play 30.Qa8+. That doesn't make progress, so I would've repeated the position and tried Qc8+ as in the game. On that basis, think I can claim a Saturday solve, my first in some time.

raymondhow: I picked all the moves that de Firmian did, none seemed easy except maybe the first. At least Thursday level, maybe Friday.
   Jun-12-22 Portisch vs Geller, 1961 (replies)
raymondhow: Hmm, maybe my comment on the first POTD made them change it. Went wrong on this one with 25...Nxf4.
   Jun-12-22 Xiong vs So, 2017 (replies)
raymondhow: After the first two moves, I wanted to play 23...c3. The engine agrees, but says it leads to equality. Don't feel like I really solved much, on the other hand I did not go wrong.
   Jun-07-22 D Mayers vs Fischer, 1953
raymondhow: After 15...Be7 is a fun Monday puzzle.
   Jun-02-22 V Lilov vs B Rzayev, 2009 (replies)
raymondhow: I went for 16.Qh5 which is good as the game move according to the engine.
