   Oct-20-22 A Reggio vs H Fahrni, 1905 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: Not a good day for me. Not only did I forget that the Black Queen is hanging in the puzzle position, but I also missed that even if the Nf3 were somewhere else irrelevant that my move 20 ... Ba3?! fails simply to 21. Bd4. I did see the 20 ... Qxc3+ idea (was trying to prepare it
   Oct-09-22 B Rytov vs Tal, 1976 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: If I were White I would have tried 24. Qxg3 Nxe2 25. Qh2 Nxc1 26. Bxc1 with a defensible position and some play. For example 26. ... f5 27. Ng5 would give ^Black^ something to worry about.
   Sep-26-22 A Powers vs Dake, 1937 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: For me the most interesting part of today's puzzle is that Stockfish gives 1 ... Nf6 a " ? ". Does this mean that modern engines evaluate Alekhine's Defence as unsound or (unlikely) is it just not in Stockfish's opening book?
   Sep-12-22 S Bengtsson vs N Benmesbah, 2019 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: the same mate was possible at move 19: 19 ... Qc3+ 20. bxc3 Bxc3 ++
   Jun-16-22 H Heinicke vs Gilg, 1940 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: 25. ... Nxe5! is also a gem
   Apr-08-22 P Troeger vs Tal, 1960 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: scored 42 ... I had a lot of difficulties in the opening as I don't play the Dutch. The 8. ... Be7 and 9. ... d6 plan did not see very "Tal-like" to me so I tried 8. ... b6
   Apr-04-22 E Ubiennykh vs O Girya, 2012 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: 30. Rb7!! ... amazing move
   Mar-06-22 Kholmov vs I Polgar, 1979 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: Solved the puzzle, but my favorite move in this game comes later: 21 ... Bc1 paralyzing White's Knight and Rook.
   Jan-24-22 A H Robbins vs Showalter, 1890 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: Was wondering exactly where White went astray in the opening and seems to me that 13. f3 is the problem. 13. Bf3 exf2+ 14.Kf1 seems to hold everything together. Black is better and more actively developed but White has much better pawn structure and might be able to win the f2 ...
   Sep-07-21 B Lalic vs Kengis, 1997 (replies)
ClassZPlaya: <Brenin>: I was also looking at that possible line, but I was thinking that after 18 ... Bxf4 19. Rxd7 Bd5 seems to hold onto the extra piece.
