   May-19-23 V Rauzer vs N Grigoriev, 1929 (replies)
stacase: 23. Rh3 was my departure from what was played.
   May-16-23 Rubinstein vs A Mundt, 1907 (replies)
stacase: 18.Qh5+ and Black has three choices or so I thought. I didn't consider resignation (-: Well anyway my policy is to always accept a resignation and stop worrying about what if he does this or that? After it was all over I finally saw that White's d4 Pawn was pinned. Hopefully over ...
   May-15-23 Kholmov vs J Klavins, 1955 (replies)
stacase: <FSR: Looks Monday-ish. Queen takes horse, queen takes queen, horse mates.> I always said Horse instead of Knight. King starts with a K and N just doesn't look right. Besides the Staunton Chess piece looks like a Horse. But then I don't like to swim against the tide (-: ...
   May-11-23 Showalter vs Lasker, 1892 (replies)
stacase: Wednesday and I get it move for move (-: Fork Black's two Rooks and break open the castled King. If Black takes with the Knight: 30...Nxf6 31. gxf6 g6 32. f5 And White has a trio of Pawns for Black to deal with.
   May-09-23 Averbakh vs A Kuznetsov, 1940 (replies)
stacase: Well, that was fun, I love discovered pins? Is that a standard Chess term?
   May-07-23 Saric vs Nepomniachtchi, 2022 (replies)
stacase: The first move jumped out at me, I just love it when a lowly Pawn has an opportunity to pull off a fork i.e., 22...dxe5 23. d6 forking Black's Queen and Bishop. Well that didn't happen and the rest isn't all that straight forward. But I'm happy to get the first move on a Sunday ...
   May-04-23 T Tolnai vs Leko, 1992 (replies)
stacase: < Honey Blend: I'd play 30. ♕g5 in a heartbeat, taking advantage of the pin. No way Black can get out of this.> I didn't see that and I like that (-: I like the analysis feature on too, and I came up with this: 30. Qg5 h5 31. Nxh5 Rxc2+ 32. Kb1 Qc5 ...
   Apr-25-23 Baklan vs A Matzat, 1999 (replies)
stacase: That was super easy compared to yesterday.
   Apr-19-23 A Matanovic vs B Rabar, 1949 (replies)
stacase: One two three ouch!
   Apr-17-23 Panov vs Lilienthal, 1945 (replies)
stacase: <mel gibson: It took me over 30 seconds to see that> Wow, that's a switch (-: Black's Queen wants to land on e1 but White's Rook is on the job. What to do? Hmmm 28...Rxa2+ seems to do the job. Does it really work? YES IT DOES! I didn't look at anything else. If I had, it ...
