   Sep-23-22 O Sabitov vs A Veingold, 1983
 
Delboy: Anyone with an opinion of who should have won this adrenalin-filled slugfest?
 
   Aug-20-22 G A Ageichenko vs I Berdichevski, 1989
 
Delboy: Black clearly completely missed 20. Bxh7+. 18. ... Qe4 looks very threatening, but it is actually a huge blunder
 
   Aug-16-22 O Salmensuu vs Aronian, 2000
 
Delboy: It looks like white's barricade is holding, but black breaks through with a winning double sacrifice, 32. ... Rxb3 and 33. ... Bxh4, removing white's queen from the defence of c3 (34. Qd2 Bg5). The engine confirms that 34. ... a2 is indeed the fastest line, though 34. ... Qc3 also ...
 
   Aug-12-22 A Kostiuchenko vs Y Sakharov, 1957 (replies)
 
Delboy: Eight moves into a seemingly ordinary set of opening moves and in a relatively lifeless looking position black starts some fireworks. It only later becomes obvious that white cannot hold on to the extra piece
 
   Aug-09-22 V Karlson vs G Khodos, 1958
 
Delboy: 43. ... ? Black to move and win. Not an obvious or easy move to find
 
   Jul-22-22 L Kokkinos vs S Wong, 1976
 
Delboy: There are four ways that I can see that allow black to hang on to the extra piece after the sneaky 21. dxe6, all of them involving astonishing queen moves. a) 21. ... Qxd4 as played; b) 21. ... Qb5 (22. axb5 Bxe2 or 22. Qd1 Qa6); 21. ... Qe7 (22. Bxe7 Bxe2 or 22. Qxd3 Qxh4 or 22. Qe1
 
   Jul-22-22 L Kokkinos vs D Donchev, 1977
 
Delboy: Black could have played 27. ... Nxc3 (28. Rxc3 Qxc3+ 29. bxc3 Ba3#), which is crushing. Maybe black was enjoying his stranglehold so much that he wanted the game to go on longer
 
   Jul-20-22 R Fuchs vs J Franz, 1951
 
Delboy: Presumably not the first time this has happened. 8. ... Kxf7 9. Ng5+ and now (a) 9. ... Kg8 10. Qd5+ with Qf7# looming; (b) 9. ... Kf8 10. Ne6+; (c) 9. ... Ke8 10. Ne6 and smothered queen. 8. ... Kf8 is no better as after 9. Ng5 10. Ne6+ (forking the royals) can only be stopped by ...
 
   Jul-01-22 V Komliakov vs R Gadjily, 1993
 
Delboy: A vicious king side attack to be crowned by a double-check mate after 26. ... Nxh3 27. Qh6+ Kg8 28. Nxe7(f6)#
 
   Jun-26-22 H Baumgartner vs A Herzog, 1985 (replies)
 
Delboy: Fantastic set of sacrificial blows that end in a mating king hunt. 15. ... Nce5 commits black to a full attack which succeeds thanks to the unfortunate role of the bishop on c1, for example 21. Nxb7 Rxf2 22. Qxf2 Qxd1+
