   Apr-05-18 Y Afek vs Psakhis, 1990 (replies)
ventricule: <landshark> 46. Bf5 Bxg1 47. Kxg1 g6 48. Be4 Qxg5 and black is up the exchange and should win (but white can be super annoying with checks)
   Feb-08-18 Csom vs Yusupov, 1982 (replies)
ventricule: For me, the hardest line to analyze was <41. Rxd4 Rxd6 42. Qxd6 exd4 > where it temporarily looks like white did not win anything. Exchanging queens with <43. Qxf6> and pushing the d and e pawns is tempting, but is not as clear cut as the main line. Stronger is ...
   Jun-15-17 Larsen vs Kavalek, 1970 (replies)
ventricule: One should also analyze the reply 26. ... Ne5. One option is 27. Nxe7 Qxe7 28. Nxg6! Qf6, where white wins the exchange but the position is still messy. Even more so if black replies with 27. ... Rb8! where the threat of the rook sac of b2 makes things very unclear. More ...
   Jan-17-17 P Rout vs M Al Sayed, 2016 (replies)
ventricule: <wooden nickel> For some reason that's the first line I came up with, and I got stuck a while trying to make it work.
   Jan-10-17 Eljanov vs Karjakin, 2015
ventricule: <NBZ> Right. Stockfish thinks that the best defence there is to give up the exchange with 32. ... Re6 , but this certainly looks grim.
   Oct-13-16 V Minko vs E A Levin, 2012 (replies)
ventricule: 57. Rxd3 is the kind of move I would be very scared to play. There are quite a few lines to check that it is safe, and with the king exposed and the queens centralized, I always forget some.
   Oct-13-16 J Penrose vs Tartakower, 1950 (replies)
ventricule: I went for 33.Qh6+ which seems stronger to me (and Stockfish agrees)
   Oct-10-16 V Malaniuk vs E Kengis, 1981 (replies)
ventricule: <Once> That was really a quality comment. I completely missed that subtle point in the puzzle.
   Sep-27-16 P N Lee vs M F Littleton, 1966 (replies)
ventricule: <7he5haman> I went for <33. Rxe6 > as well. Black can delay mate for a fex moves by sacrificing the queen but according to Stockfish both moves are equally crushing.
   Sep-19-16 Bisguier vs H Gross, 1957 (replies)
ventricule: Interesting. After 21. ... Rc7 White simply play axb3 and has a rook a piece and a pawn for the queen. With his fantastic white bishop, he is better but the win still needs to be found.
