   Jan-12-09 Niloofar Nayab vs N Arosemena, 2008
 
AlaskaksalA: In defense of bad chess - without it, there wouldn't be good chess.
 
   Dec-16-08 C Jaenisch vs Staunton, 1851
 
AlaskaksalA: Way to avoid the swindle after white's move 90. White has a Superlaser after move 33. I love the g-column after move 30.

AlaskaksalA: Great puzzle. How many people here make that kind of sacrifice before seeing the full line out until the end, trusting the Gods of the King-Hunt?
 
   Oct-30-08 Keitlinghaus vs T Fogarasi, 1996 (replies)
 
AlaskaksalA: Hello! This is my first post here; I have enjoyed these puzzles for months, however. I am just trying to understand when to consider this (or any)puzzle 'solved.' Was the resignation at this point because of the capture of the H8 Rook after any king move out of check? White is ...
