Mayankk: Does anyone know how the game may have moved after 53… Kxf4? What prompted Black to play g6 instead ? After 53 … Kxf4, 54 Kd4 Bxg5 55 Kxe4, Black has a passed g pawn while White still has to clean up the b pawn to create a passer of its own.

Mayankk: Seems White missed a win by 20 Nd6+ after which 20 …. Bxd6+ 21 Qg6+ Kd8 22 exd6 Qc6 21 Rh3 etc… gives it a winning advantage. Black returned the favour by missing 33 … Rd6 where the option Bd5 to pin the e6 Rook is no longer available. Interesting that both the misses happened

Mayankk: I think I would have wrongly played this attack in a real game by 32 Qd4+ instead of 32 Be5+, where the King can escape via the e4 square...

Mayankk: 34 ... Rf1+ 35 Rg1 Bf3# is the quickest route to victory. But let’s say in a Blitz game we fail to spot 34 ... Rf1+ and play 34 ... Bf3 instead. Is it still a Black win ?
   Dec-21-20 R Kempinski vs R Slobodjan, 2010 (replies)
Mayankk: A somewhat unusual but satisfying Rook sac at 31 Rxg7+. As some other fellow kibitzers have noted, solving this on move 31 is one thing. Voluntarily getting your Rook trapped via 24 Rc7 and 26 Qxf7+, anticipating this sac 5 moves later is a different matter altogether.
   Dec-20-20 J Roos vs Miralles, 1997 (replies)
Mayankk: The first few moves are extremely forcing with not many side variations to worry. 22 ... Bxe2 forces the White Queen on a vulnerable square. 23 ... d3 attacks it immediately where Qxd3 loses to the Bishop fork via Bxb2 when White must lose a Rook. This necessitates 24 cxd3 after ...
   Dec-19-20 Tkachiev vs Watson, 1993
Mayankk: The game sequence seems to play itself once you spot the 20 Nd5 idea and how 22 Bxf6 takes out the only piece defending the Black king, while also wrecking its pawn structure. All the moves after that are sort of obvious, 23 Rg3+ (what else), and 24 Qxh7+ is a Monday puzzle Queen ...
   Dec-18-20 E Shaposhnikov vs Dvoirys, 2000 (replies)
Mayankk: I saw 15 Bxh7+ Kxh7 16 Qh5+ Kg8 17 Ng6 forking Queen and Rook. And then mistakenly thought it could be mate soon at h8. But there was more to play for unfortunately. I had no clue about the Ne4 Ng5 strategy.
   Dec-17-20 I Veinger vs Timoshchenko, 1998 (replies)
Mayankk: Easy enough to notice the poor White Rook at h1 and how the Black Queen can skewer it from either c6 or b7 after its Bishop clears the diagonal. Maybe it’s CG tactics to confuse us by disguising puzzles under the wrong difficulty levels. It definitely makes it more interesting ...
   Dec-16-20 K Georgiev vs Topalov, 1992
Mayankk: I guess the reason why the engine may prefer Bxf8 Kxf8 over Qf4 ... Bxc5 and keeping the dark White Bishop since it keeps material equal while still retaining the power of a protected passed d5 pawn. To the human eye though the c5 dark Bishop seems worth keeping as it allows White ...
