   Oct-04-08 Khurtsidze vs M Calzetta, 2003
wzeller: 19, qg5??? d6???? What's going on?
   Aug-13-07 Harris vs Weeramantry, 1972 (replies)
wzeller: Move 16, black to move would make an excellent Thursday/Friday puzzle. Very nice combinative idea and it seems forcing.
   Jun-13-07 Y Xu vs N Ioseliani, 2001
wzeller: The point is black cannot take the rook without losing his queen to a knight fork -- either on h5 or d5 (when black's rook can't take due to the pin). Very beautiful final position.
   May-27-07 L Christiansen vs Bu Xiangzhi, 2000
wzeller: Spectacular combination to finish off the old man (Bu was 15 when this game was played!). I think he saw that all from move 33.
   May-22-06 Marshall vs G Marco, 1900 (replies)
wzeller: If, after 22. f6+ black moves 22. ... kg8 there is the beautiful 23. rh8+! kxh8 24. qh6+ qg8 25. qg7++
   Apr-07-06 Sliwa vs Stoltz, 1953 (replies)
wzeller: Goumindong: You know Qxc6 is not even close to "solving" the puzzle, right? If you saw nb7 in 3 seconds, then you are a strong player and I genuflect to your skillz.
   Mar-19-06 Kaidanov vs Wojtkiewicz, 1994 (replies)
wzeller: I saw nf5 exf5 rxd6 qxd6 bxe5 but that's as far as I could be certain. As this leaves white down an exchange, I don't think that I can say I solved it, but I found nf5 because I realized that if black ignores the knight white can play nh6+ kg7 ng4 and win material, and if black ...
   Mar-15-06 Keres vs Averbakh, 1953 (replies)
wzeller: 39. ... black to move could be an interesting Wednesdayish puzzle.
   Mar-15-06 Averbakh vs V Osnos, 1965 (replies)
wzeller: This is a pretty cool puzzle. After 19. rxd5! cxd5 20. nf6+ black will be forced to go to e7 regardless of where the king tries to retreat. As well as the line black took in the game (20. ... kf8), 20. ... kd8 also loses because white has 21. bb6+ ke7 22. nxd5+ forking the bishop. ...
   Mar-01-06 Koneru vs Z Nemeth, 2005 (replies)
wzeller: I thought 24. Rf3 instead of Qg5+ is much more forcing and looks to lead to mate in a few moves. What am I missing?
