   Jul-07-20 Huebner vs Adorjan, 1980 (replies)
 
stacase: 66.Kxh4 was the only move for White on the hope that Black would fall for it with 66...Rxg5. He did! And White does the happy Dance. What else could Black have done instead of taking the poison Rook? Doesn't matter I'm happy. Being on the receiving end of the unexpected "STALEMATE! ...

stacase: Unlike <TheBish> I did finally notice that White's c7 Pawn and removal of Black's Rook was key. The only consideration was where on move 44 to move the Bishop to make it work.

stacase: That took about two seconds.

stacase: I was happy to get the first 3 moves (-:
 
   Jun-22-20 E Pettersson vs Stahlberg, 1935 (replies)
 
stacase: < get Reti: There’s one move that checks, try it and it works!> Excellent point(-: Saw that as the only check but didn't notice that it set up the fork. Well what did you expect from a wood pusher like me? But when there was nothing else, after a few seconds of casting about, ...

stacase: <Predrag3141: After 25 minutes of thought, the great Silicon Grandmaster...> Ha ha ha ha! The GSGM must never consider those little rules of thumb in Chess. Knights on the rim are dim and worth no more than two pawns, at least that's what I came up with and I'm no grand master
 
   Jun-19-20 Galego vs F Izeta Txabarri, 1999 (replies)
 
stacase: I'm thinking this is Rook sacrifice week. So, 37.Rxf6. But I can't see the win if Black accepts the sacrifice (37...gxf6) because White's Knight needs to support the Queen for the mate and needs to cover h1 to defend against Black's Queen saying check from h1 with a whole lot of ...
 
   Jun-18-20 Acs vs V Chuchelov, 2007 (replies)
 
stacase: Didn't see 29...Qd5
 
   Jun-15-20 B Rabar vs E Paoli, 1953 (replies)
 
stacase: Ouch! Saying "Check" and threatening mate at the same time, is a pretty good move. Especially if getting out of check doesn't remove the threat.
 
   Jun-08-20 D Byrne vs W G Addison, 1969 (replies)
 
stacase: Hmmm, looks complex, lots of moves that don't do anything. Maybe there's a Knight fork waiting to happen. Ah, yes there is. But then there's a won game to be won. Oh! Black resigns - Sweet!
