   May-10-22 Maiorov vs R Bagirov, 2001 (replies)
 
steinitzfan: I got it. If this had happened to me over the board I would have played 29 Qxg6 - and lost.
 
   May-01-22 D Kadric vs A Jankovic, 2014 (replies)
 
steinitzfan: A multi-phase combination. White sacrifices queen for knight. He creates a mate net that Black can break only by giving back all but a pawn (equivalent). The last few moves are the most difficult. No checks or obvious forcing moves - just an envelopment of the king's position.
 
   Apr-24-22 S Kiselev vs Pribyl, 1995 (replies)
 
steinitzfan: An Englishman 34. d7 looks good for full credit to me. That's what I got and I'm going to say that I solved a Sunday puzzle.
 
   Apr-14-22 B Lengyel vs N A Adams, 2006
 
steinitzfan: This is a sort of inverse combination. In most combinations, you sacrifice material to close off escape routes for the enemy king. Here you're giving some material back to provide your own king with a minimal escape route.
 
   Apr-11-22 P Rejto vs E Schiller, 1983 (replies)
 
steinitzfan: Now that's a Monday puzzle if I ever saw one.
 
   Jan-17-22 Menchik vs Gruenfeld, 1929
 
steinitzfan: Could have Karpov won this game for Black? Say from around move 68? I say Karpov - but you could substitute the name of any of the great positional geniuses of the game.
 
   Jan-12-22 A Grabinsky vs Shimanov, 2016 (replies)
 
steinitzfan: Easier than a lot of 2 move puzzles. Every move forced except for worthless interpositions. I saw to ...Bc7 and then kind of knew it was over.
 
   Dec-03-21 Landa vs S Shipov, 1998
 
steinitzfan: This is an equalizing puzzle. If you saw that the first two moves are necessary to avoid loss you can congratulate yourself.
 
   Aug-10-21 M Roiz vs T Warakomski, 2005
 
steinitzfan: Regarding the 2-move mate - there's a lot packed in those two moves. When Black takes the queen he opens the g-file and obstructs a critical retreat square. The actual mating move is pretty complicated as well.
 
   May-16-21 B Socko vs Krasenkow, 2000 (replies)
 
steinitzfan: According to Stockfish this is all a refutation of a horrendous blunder White made on the previous move. With 31 Re1, the evaluation goes from appr. 0 to -10. Would anybody but a computer know it though?
