Ever tried, ever failed, no matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

rudiment: I always try to play these like I would OTB so after much thought I went for 25. Re7 but that pesky bishop ruined my plans. Should've dealt with him first.

rudiment: First Thursday I've gotten in ages. Re4 and White's Q is momentarily trapped, leading to a few forcing lines that at worst leave Black with a small but significant material advantage. I didn't find the exact game line - my Qh1 always came a bit later - but I'm chalking this down as

rudiment: I also reckoned 19. e6 would be the move I'd play over the board, but didn't really know how it would play out or how it could be a "puzzly" solution. Seems I'm not alone!

rudiment: If it were Black's move, White's Bishop would be doomed. Trying to save the Bishop with something like h3 hands Black the initiative. But the pawn on d6, which the Bishop is attacking, is quite weak. I tried to make something out of pinning a rook there with: 34. Rxd6 Rxd6 35. Rxc5

rudiment: Didn't spot the game line at all. What happens if White plays 26. Rc6?

rudiment: Simples. Get the minor pieces off and White's King will have too much to do.

rudiment: 15. Nxe6 threatens to demolish Black's kingside and pretty much forces the exchange. I didn't see the rest of the game line after 16...Bg7.

rudiment: Ooof. Way beyond me.

rudiment: Happy to get this, I usually miss the non-mating ones. My process for these puzzles is generally to ask myself "what move would be mate if it weren't for that one pesky piece" - and in this case that led me straight to Qg7+ and the game line.

rudiment: Took me a while to see it but there's nothing White can do after Bg2
