   Oct-13-21 J J Rousseau vs D Hume, 1765 (replies)
Delboy: Whoever created this game missed an 'opportunity': 6. Bxf7+ Kxf7 7. Nxe5+ Ke8 8. Qh5+ Ke7 (8. ... g6 9. Nxg6 N8f6 is clearly better) 9. Qf7+ Kd6 10. Nc4+ Kc6 11. Qd5+ Kb5 12. Nc3+ Ka6 13. b4! b5 (what else?) 14. a4! (14. Qc6+ wins more prosaically) bxc4 15. Qc6+ Qb6 16. b5+ Ka4 17. ...
   Oct-08-21 Machulsky vs D Tomic, 1985
Delboy: An opening trap. 9. ... dxc6 10. Bxf7+ and it is bye-bye to the queen
   Sep-24-21 Capablanca vs P H Moise, 1915 (replies)
Delboy: Capablanca uncharacteristically going "wild, wild, wild" (pun brings up memories - I too was a Noddy Holder fan)
   Sep-22-21 J Lobigas vs H Schumacher, 1970
Delboy: A game with many twists and turns and motor sport pun potential. In the end the two black minor pieces cannot evade the more powerful chasing rook. After 33. Rxg7 the bishop is stuck in the pits and black runs out of gas
   Sep-20-21 R Toma vs F Rakotomaharo, 2016
Delboy: A vicious attacking win from today's player of the day. 22. Bxc8 Rxf2+ 23. Kg1 Qc5 and I do not believe mate can be stopped
   Sep-16-21 C Lelievre vs M Francois, 2015 (replies)
Delboy: <al wazir> You are correct, but in this case the "le" plays on the first syllable of the winner's surname and the (male) loser's surname. A bit like in cryptic crossword clues (which are rarely perfect puns)
   Sep-07-21 K Abhishek vs S Grover, 2008
Delboy: Intriguing complications after the rook sac 32. ... Rxb3+ involving back rank threats on both sides. 33. axb3 a2+ 34. Kxa2 Ra8# 35. Kb1 Nc3+ 36. Kb2 Ra2+ 37. Kc1 Nxe2+ (check!) wins for black. If 33. cxb3 Nc3+ 34. Ka1 Nxe2 then white is probably better after 35. Rd8+. In the final ...
   Aug-25-21 C Hartlaub vs H Fahrni, 1906
Delboy: A fun attack from the last years of the romantic era. I managed to figure out that "Norymberdze" is Polish for N├╝rnberg (Nuremberg)
   Aug-24-21 Y Zhou vs N Carr, 2013
Delboy: Sorry for the confusion <An Englishman>, I indeed meant the obvious capture 14. Nxf3. I'm not saying I advocate the move (the game continuation worked quite nicely), just that I could not see the justification for black giving up the knight like that
   Aug-23-21 A Kovalev vs S Yuferov, 1982 (replies)
Delboy: What a peculiar game. White's king walk at the expense of development clearly did not work out, though it is not obvious to me what the losing move was
