   Aug-05-05 V Zurakhov vs Zamikhovsky, 1959 (replies)
 
xxdsdxx: The goal here is obviously to promote one of the 3 passed pawns. The White Rook can start a trade down but will leave the Bishop on the powerful diagonal a1-h8 and will disrupt the white pawn chain. I don't like that idea. Rh6+ gxh6...g7+ and the Black King has one move g8. f6 and ...
 
   Aug-04-05 C von Holstein-Rathlau vs H Kongsted, 2001 (replies)
 
xxdsdxx: I never look at the comments that are posted until after I solve the daily puzzle and make my post. But as many of you have pointed out, there seems to be a hole in theory here. I would not have envisioned cornering my king to avoid mate would work, it rarely has (hence not ...
 
   Aug-03-05 Zukertort vs Steinitz, 1886 (replies)
 
xxdsdxx: Welcome to the 21st Century. We let Fritz do our puzzle solving for us! Fritz says... Suffice it to say that White's losing move was 29. Bc4, freely giving up the diagonal to molest the queen. The best move was probably Be3 adding a defensive piece in the presence of the Black ...
 
   Aug-02-05 Nunn vs Portisch, 1988 (replies)
 
xxdsdxx: Black built his own coffin when he allowed 22. NxBe7 fxe7. His pieces were locked in the center by the pawn wall and the white pieces were allowed to shift to the kingside. The Queen sacrifice put the last nail in that coffin. Very good game.
 
   Aug-01-05 Reshevsky vs Larsen, 1971 (replies)
 
xxdsdxx: I am in the category of this is Monday Nh6+ ... oops!!! Qg7 doesn't work!!! Ng5!!! Fork the Queen and Mate the King. - Keep your minds out of the gutter!!!!
 
   Jul-28-05 Kasparov vs Kramnik, 1999 (replies)
 
xxdsdxx: The file between the Black king and White Rook is cluttered with pieces. What happens if those pieces were not there? 35. Rxd5 exd5 36. Nd4+... ...Re7 Steps into a pin and loses the Queen. ... Kd8 Ne6+ and the f7 pawn is pinned (fxe6 Qxf8#) thus sticking a fork in the Queen. The ...
 
   Jul-26-05 V Mikenas vs Aronin, 1957 (replies)
 
xxdsdxx: "A pinned piece is a useless piece" was never more clearer. I enjoy the way that CG reinforces what you should already know with examples. For White to win he should never should have stepped into that pin. These "easy" examples have become second nature for a lot of us and our ...
 
   Jul-25-05 T Haimovich vs V Slovineanu, 2001 (replies)
 
xxdsdxx: Nice and easy... Queen removes the rook and a back rank mate is quite painless, if you are white.
 
   Jul-22-05 Reshevsky vs Gligoric, 1952 (replies)
 
xxdsdxx: I got the theme of the game, Bishop pair vs Knight pair, and the desire to clear the rooks off the board, but fell short after 23. Bxb5+ Ke7. There is no way to force the black rook out of the game. Fortunately for White, Black voluntarily did that for him with 26... Rc8. In Black's
 
   Jul-21-05 Ljubojevic vs N Padevsky, 1974 (replies)
 
xxdsdxx: Looking at these posts, I realized that it worked either way. The OTHER check (Nxg5+), hxg5 (preferred over Kg8), Nf6+ Bxf6 forced, Qxf7+ Bg7 forced, h6!!! and there ain't no way out of this! Two trails to the same ending, no wonder I found it so quickly! & I thought I was a ...
