   Jul-10-20 Fischer vs Spassky, 1972 (replies)
steinitzfan: It was a dark day for me when this game was (not) played. I was quite young. But things looked brighter when Fischer got on the scoreboard in the next game.
   Mar-30-20 Korchnoi vs Doda, 1955
steinitzfan: Correction. It enables a pin only if Black captures at d5 with the knight. The unplayability of this variation is what makes Black accept an immediate loss by taking with the rook.
   Nov-04-19 P K Seuffert vs Blackburne, 1894 (replies)
steinitzfan: According to Stockbridge, White's game took a nose dive at the very end with Rxa5.
   Sep-28-19 Israel Albert Horowitz
steinitzfan: <Parachessus> I've heard Shatranj is a bit weak tactically, but Horowitz's endgame problems were quite interesting. Somewhere I read that a Shatranj game opens so slowly that opening systems can be pursued without much regard to what the opponent is doing.
   Sep-27-19 V Kovacevic vs Z Kozul, 1993 (replies)
steinitzfan: Wow. A number of very brilliant variations here.
   Jul-23-19 Seirawan vs Timman, 1990 (replies)
steinitzfan: White either mates or wins the queen. A little deep for a Tuesday because Black has a number of plausible tries -- all fail.
   Jun-17-19 A Hugaert vs B Gundavaa, 2009 (replies)
steinitzfan: There's a nice interference theme with Ng3+ followed by Ne2++ (mate in 9 according to Stockfish). It's going to be a little murky for most humans because it's not clear how to mate or even maintain the material gains in the ensuing complications. I didn't see the game line.
   Mar-04-19 Kramnik vs Aronian, 2009 (replies)
steinitzfan: I didn't get it. After Black accepts the rook sac, White has two very tempting double checks to look at -- one of which actually mates in three. I had to let the 6-second wonder find it, though.
   Jul-30-18 S Volkov vs D Anikonov, 2016 (replies)
steinitzfan: The Monday puzzle for androids in the year 2500.
   Jun-19-18 J Salomon vs M Vachier-Lagrave, 2017 (replies)
steinitzfan: I got target fixation looking for a way to divert that knight and get a back rank mate. Difficult for a Tuesfay.
