Played when I was a kid and through high school. Found this site after decades of hiatus.

1g1yy: <gawain: I could see only one candidate move. Fortunately it was the right move.> Actually, I also looked at Nxd5 as well, and it leads to some very interesting carnage, but it doesn't end in #...

1g1yy: <Diademas: I would be interested in knowing how other people do calculations. Do you just visualize the board, or is the process more abstract?> I think it's just a matter of practice. I'm not very good at it either, but constantly practicing it has helped me to go a few plies ...

1g1yy: I've paid several sites annual fees, and days like today make me feel good about my decision not to take on a paid subscription here. I don't know who admins the site, but seriously, there are literally millions of games with great tactics and initiative swings to choose from. Given ...

1g1yy: Not often you will see where two Queens, two Bishops and two Rooks it is not enough to defend against a Queen a knight and a pawn, and yet here we are.

1g1yy: Since I'm at work and didn't want to take all day to go through the lines you guys have posted up, is 29 g5 not decisive? What am I missing? I would have played that instead of the bishop move to the h file, but I'm certainly a weaker player than Nigel Short.

1g1yy: What I think would be nice, is to know the clock readings to know just how long it took the person to find this at the board. Several folks said this was easy, and I admit, the first move is pretty easy. But, the hard part is being the first guy to have this puzzle over the board, and

1g1yy: < dhotts: Hard to believe a 2450+ player blunders his way into a mate in 5?...The series of bad moves ended with 46...Nc4.> I used to wonder that sometimes too, but in a tough time situation, you just never know. Even GMs blunder.

1g1yy: I didn't even consider Kxh6 because I preferred the g pawn keeping the N out of g5. It looked to me if gxh6, the white attack would stall. Once it gets too far down the line I simply can't calculate all the options, and going on my intuition doesn't work on lines that aren't mostly ...

1g1yy: Looked at this probably as long as any I've tried to solve, and couldn't see it... :( Just wasn't considering the pin... :shrug:

1g1yy: I tried the first move but gave up and went looking elsewhere. This was too deep for me.
