Caissas Clown: According to Stockfish , 24. Rxf7 !! is best - but only on a Monday :-).
 
   Dec-30-21 A Graf vs N Guliyev, 2005 (replies)
 
Caissas Clown: Fairly simple for Thursday. I am in danger of thinking I'm improving ! More likely,CG is in generous holiday mode.
 
   Dec-29-21 Wojtaszek vs R Kalod, 2004 (replies)
 
Caissas Clown: I found this easier than Monday's one.
 
   Dec-01-21 J A Torres vs R Gonzalez, 2000 (replies)
 
Caissas Clown: I went for Rxe6 followed by Qxg6.....then I saw it was Black to play !
 
   Aug-14-21 Speelman vs Azmaiparashvili, 1994 (replies)
 
Caissas Clown: <JCigan> Yeah,that's what I thought,too. And indeed,the engine gives it as best. I am *guessing* that Jonathan overlooked it due to time trouble , *or* he eschewed 39.Rh8 check on purpose.Why? Because after 39..Kf7 40.Rxh8 Kxf6 , he was worried - especially with his K so

Caissas Clown: <hdcc> : 'Unfortunately Bree didn't know it was a Monday.' The win could be even more Monday-fied , if Black had chosen to play ...38 Ke7.White then has the cruel 39.Qf6+ , needlessly delaying mate by one move , but giving us a Q sac.
 
   Apr-19-21 Kiriakov vs Greenfeld, 2017 (replies)
 
Caissas Clown: Easy. Now for the hard bit : why does a GM play on to mate rather than resign in a classical format game ? Surely he was not in TT as early as move 25 ? Maybe Ne4 "looked" like check ? Or with both Q and R en prise, he did not see the mate ??
 
   Mar-04-21 Kholmov vs Sokolsky, 1952 (replies)
 
Caissas Clown: I wonder why a player of White's calibre let this be played out to mate , against another fine player ? Was Black in time trouble and White hoped for a mistake ? Or was White in time trouble and did not see the mate ? I guess we will never find out. Other possibility : White ...

Caissas Clown: I am a very ordinary player , but found that easy. There was really only one line. Only time I paused was on the last move,when I considered 37..Qxg2 , before finding the mate.
 
   Dec-30-20 A Kovchan vs A Moiseenko, 2002 (replies)
 
Caissas Clown: I found 51..Qxg3 quickly.I doubt I would've found it so quickly in one of my own games,though-it's always easier to sacrifice someone else's Queen :-) !
