I played a few tournements in the '90s and had a 1400 rating. I mostly play computers now.

   Dec-14-19 Navara vs R Wojtaszek, 2015 (replies)
stacase:     Move 32 White had two choices to avoid mate and one was crappy. The next 4 moves sort of played themselves. I parted company and would have moved 37.Nxc6 So does that count? Dunno, how far out are we supposed to see these things?

stacase:           You do have to notice that White's d5 Pawn covers e6 before 25.Rh8+ works. Pretty good Tuesday puzzle.        
   Nov-30-19 J K Duda vs G Gajewski, 2016 (replies)
stacase: I got the first two moves. As always, how many of the following 49 moves are you supposed to get to claim, "I got it!" Well anyway, I'm happy to get the first two on a Saturday (-:
   Nov-21-19 Savon vs Polugaevsky, 1971 (replies)
stacase: Yesterday it was two moves and a Queen sacrifice which I didn't figure out. Duh! Today was way easier. All you have to take note of is besides protecting the Knight, 34.Kg3 also threatens mate and Black can't defend. Pretty darn easy for a Thursday puzzle.
   Nov-19-19 W Toikka vs T G Cook, 1987 (replies)
stacase: A few seconds to see it and a few more to confirm that it works. Pretty good Tuesday.
   Nov-18-19 Zhaoqin Peng vs A Caoili, 2002 (replies)
stacase: Ha ha (-: 24.Bf6+ and not 24.Bxe7+ I did look at 24.Bxe7+ first but one of those little hints when you post says, "When you see a good move, look for a better one." Well anyway a good Monday puzzle to start off my day.
   Nov-17-19 Szabo vs V Tukmakov, 1970 (replies)
stacase: <al wazir: I got the first two moves.> Me too <The next 37 were almost routine.> There were a few "Why'd he do that?" moves in those following 37 but yeah, it seemed pretty much straight forward.
   Nov-11-19 E Torre vs Van der Wiel, 1987 (replies)
stacase: Why not 54.Qh8# Oh Black has a Bishop on the job. What to do, what to do? Oh look at that 54.Rd6+ and Black can take the Rook or 54...Kh7. Either way White says mate on move 55.
   Nov-10-19 Vyzmanavin vs V Ruban, 1989 (replies)
stacase: 25.Ng6 I would have moved 25.Qg4 followed by Bxf5+ or Bxf5 depending on what Black did. Bishop for a Rook is a good deal in my book.
   Nov-08-19 V Ruban vs A Poluljahov, 1994 (replies)
stacase: 20.Rxg6+ I really didn't consider that for much more than a second or two.
