   Dec-10-19 K Treybal vs J Engel, 1932 (replies)
zb2cr: Put me in the 33. Ne7 group as well.
   Dec-09-19 W Napier vs Teichmann, 1904 (replies)
zb2cr: It took me a while to see this, as I was hung up on the idea of playing 37. ... g5+ and that leading to mate. Eventually I convinced myself that I couldn't derive a mete from that line, took another look, and saw the correct move 37. ... Qf2#.
   Dec-03-19 Saemisch vs J Engel, 1928 (replies)
zb2cr: White wins with 25. Rh8+. The main line is 25. ... Kxh8; 26. Qh5+, Kg8; 27. Qh7+, Kf7; 28. Bg6#. Black can try refusing the Rook with 25. ... Kf7, but <agb2002> and <eblunt> point out 2 methods of delivering mate in that case.
   Dec-02-19 Didier vs Marshall, 1900 (replies)
zb2cr: Thought I had seen this before. 24. ... Qxc4+ forces mate.
   Nov-26-19 Prins vs E Paoli, 1949 (replies)
zb2cr: To me, it looks as though Black easily holds the draw with 29. ... Re8, so <Autoreparaturwerkbau>'s diagnosis of the losing sequence seems right.
   Nov-25-19 N Padevsky vs I Asmundsson, 1957 (replies)
zb2cr: White wins a Rook with the straightforward Queening combination 15. Qxg8, Nxg8; 16. h7! Black can try a simple trap, with 16. ... Bd7; but White is not forced to capture the Knight and can simply play 17. h8=Q.
   Nov-18-19 Zhaoqin Peng vs A Caoili, 2002 (replies)
zb2cr: White sacrifices the Queen to lure Black into the path of a devastating double check. 24. Qh8+, Kxh8; 25. Bf6+, Kg8; 26. Rh8#.
   Nov-12-19 Yusupov vs Dolmatov, 1987 (replies)
zb2cr: Hmmm. 30. Rdxc5 looks good. If Black recaptures, 31. Qxc5 threatens mate and the Rook. If then 31. ... Ke8; 32. Qxa7, Kf8. The White Bishop is poisoned--32. ... Qxe4??; 33. Rc8#. If 30. ... Qxd6; 31. Rc8+ wins a Rook.
   Nov-11-19 E Torre vs Van der Wiel, 1987 (replies)
zb2cr: 54. Rd6+ gives Black 3 choices: A. 54. ... Bxd6; 55. Qh8#. B. 54. ... Kh7; 55. Qg8#. C. 54. ... Qg6; 55. R(either)xg6+, which then gives Black the choice of two ways to be checkmated: C.1. 55. ... Kh7; 56. Qg8#. C.2. 55. ... Kh5; 56. Qh5#.
   Nov-05-19 Joel Benjamin vs Romanishin, 1987
zb2cr: Looks like 48. Bxe5, Bxd5; 49. Rxf7+ with a double check is fatal for Black. If 49. ... Kg8; 50. Rg7+, Kh8; 51. Rxg6+, Qxe5; 52. Rf8+, Bg8; 53. R(either)xg8#. If 49. ... Kh6; 50. Bf4+, Kh5; 51. Rxh7#. So, Black has to turn down the Queen, for example with the line <saturn2> ...
