   Dec-30-22 A A Zaremba vs O Bjarnason, 2006 (replies)
tatarch: < agb2002: White has a bishop and a knight for the bishop pair and a pawn. Black is about to play Bxe5 and Nd3. White can start an attack against the black king with 16.Bxh7+: A) 16... Kxh7 17.Qh5+ Kg8 18.Ng6 (18.Ne4 Bxe5 19.Ng5 Qxg5 20.Qxg5 Bf6, unclear) A.1) 18... Rf7 ...
   Jul-22-22 L Coelho vs A Rodriguez Vila, 2011 (replies)
tatarch: <Granny O Doul: 25... g5 26. hg Rh6 27. gxh6 Rh5 28. Qg7#. Sometimes, everything just flows.> I fell into this trap. 26...Rh6 is one of those moves I'd smugly play in a blitz game and then laugh and resign immediately after. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
   Feb-08-22 J Platt vs E Richter, 1949 (replies)
tatarch: Wondered why white didn’t trade rooks earlier, and indeed engine says it’s a draw at move 63 if he did.
   May-25-21 Benjamin vs W Hook, 1990
tatarch: 51.Rf5 is a nice puzzle move, although Nxd6 looks just as forcing
   Aug-13-20 A Shomoev vs V Belov, 2003 (replies)
tatarch: <al wazir: I interchanged moves 29 and 30: 29...Rxa2+ 30. Kxa2 b4, etc. Does the order matter?> I did this too and no it doesn't work :( As <goldfarbdj> pointed out white has Na3 which I missed and which stockfish says is a draw at best for black. 1) =0.00 (26 ply) ...
   May-01-20 I Sokolov vs S Williams, 2006 (replies)
tatarch: 30...f4 is great. Good Sunday puzzle.
   Apr-10-18 Zukertort vs Count Epoureano, 1872
tatarch: <andrewjsacks: 15. Bh7 is not only wonderfully creative but humorous.> Agreed - great shot. If black takes the bishop it's Qg6+ and then mate on the h file.
   Mar-30-18 Kotov vs Bondarevsky, 1936 (replies)
tatarch: <wtpy: ...if the puzzle had started two moves earlier beginning with 23 ..f4+, which Bondarevsky clearly saw, I think it could have been a Sunday problem.> Agreed, and seems like he saw it even two moves before that with 21...Qh4. Incredible game.
   Feb-28-18 Ftacnik vs Gotti, 1987 (replies)
tatarch: <5hrsolver: For a while I was trying to make the line 19. Ba3 Re8 20. Rxf7 Kxf7 21. Nd6+ But could not find a good continuation and too hard for a Wednesday. Went back to the problem after some time and found the game line quickly. It helps to step back and refresh your mind.>
   Feb-26-18 Dubois vs Duke Karl / Casabianca / Preti, 1855 (replies)
tatarch: <Retireborn: He probably mated the Duchess a few times.> Well played
