xKinGKooLx: This was not as easy as normal for Mondays. I spent quite a while looking at sacrifices before seeing that none of them work. Then, I tried just to win material, and saw the move. Nice puzzle.

xKinGKooLx: This puzzle was by no means easy, but I don't think it was <insane.> It just required good chess knowledge, the ability to see the whole board, and seeing ahead skills, which I've been working on. I got the answer after about 15 mins, but only because I checked and double ...

xKinGKooLx: 4/5. This one was definitely <difficult.> I got it exactly right, but it took me about 15 minutes of thought. It makes up for not getting yesterday's puzzle though.

xKinGKooLx: OK, I didn't get the solution above (damn), but I think that I might have seen something else. 25. ...Qe3 26. Qxe3 Ng3+ 27. hxg3 f4, and White cannot prevent 28. ...Rh6 mate. Or have I just made a massive oversight somewhere? I keep saying my "seeing ahead" skills need ...

xKinGKooLx: <Phony Benoni: <xKinGKooLx> I think it's a common misconception that short games are boring. They don't last long enough to achieve that distinction.> Yes, it's just that I'm having trouble finding long games that are "boring". Maybe I should add some long games that ...

xKinGKooLx: 3/3. Wow, what is wrong with me? I DID see the solution in the end, but it took me about 10 minutes to find it! I was staring at the position, and I was thinking to myself, "It can't be THAT hard can it, it's only a Wednesday puzzle!" I was getting rather frustrated, and then I ...

xKinGKooLx: Rejected puns: "You dirty Ratmir" "Not too Shab-by" Lol. Anyway, A very nice game. The final move 30. Rc8 was a clever way to get away from the king fork.

xKinGKooLx: <Chessmensch: The pun is a play on the expression, "I'm at my wits' end."> Ah! Of course! Thanks.

xKinGKooLx: I just want to say thank you for the great puzzles of the day you provided today and Thursday, <chessgames.com.> I learnt some useful tactics from them. Keep it up!

xKinGKooLx: 3.5/5. I got the first move at least... so I'm giving myself half a point, but I STILL NEED to learn to look further ahead - I still find it so hard to do, after many years of playing! This combination was definitely within my boundaries - I might have got it if I had used a ...
