   Oct-11-21 So vs Sasikiran, 2015 (replies)
NBZ: I do enjoy the fact that the combination would not work if Black didn't have the d4 pawn, since after Qxf5 Black would mate with Qa1+ Kh2 g3. Though White can still play the strong Qd8+ Rf6 h4+ (same idea!) Kg6 Re8! with a very large advantage.
   Oct-06-21 Chen Zou vs Sengupta, 2019 (replies)
NBZ: <newzild> that is tempting indeed, but for 38. ... Rxf6 bringing White's queen to a premature end.
   Oct-05-21 Englisch vs Blackburne, 1883
NBZ: Ay, Englisch was badly burned.
   Sep-30-21 G Sanna vs P Motwani, 1979 (replies)
NBZ: This is a neat puzzle. I am fully in awe that White appears to have foreseen this as far back as move 28, since otherwise he would surely have avoided 28. f4 and played something else. Black must have thought he was winning material with 28... cxb3, since if (after 29. Rxc6 Qxc6 30. ...
   Sep-28-21 H Olafsson vs S Agdestein, 1987 (replies)
NBZ: <agb2002>: I really like the Qf5 idea. Of course the Black queen wants to eventually go to h3, but by first stopping at f5, she forces the white rook to come to f1 and block the king's escape route, so that Qh3 now comes with a double mate threat. Very clever and it's a real pity ...
   Sep-16-21 Dolmatov vs P Nikolic, 1989 (replies)
NBZ: I also fell for Rd8. Well done CG, played me there.
   Sep-11-21 Shamkovich vs Kholmov, 1961 (replies)
NBZ: This is the first game I have seen with comments from as far back as 2002.
   Jul-26-21 T Bree vs V Krutti, 1999 (replies)
NBZ: To be fair to Bree, both White and Black were shuffling their pieces in the last few moves. During that time the Black queen was guarding d7, making the tactic impossible. The combination only became feasible when the Queen moved to c4, but by then White had probably already assured ...
   Jun-24-21 Svidler vs M Nedobora, 1994 (replies)
NBZ: <Hercdon> What I have been doing in these dark times is to go to lichess ( ), and then copy the PGN from CG to lichess.
   Jun-16-21 M Tratatovici vs Suba, 1987 (replies)
NBZ: <Cellist>: You bring up a very interesting line. After 29. c3 Be4+ 30. Ka1 Black can play 30. ... Qa3!! with the idea that bxa3 is met by b2# and otherwise Black can play Qxa2#. White can try to prolong the game with 31. Nh6+ gxh6 32. Rxf8+ but here Black can win in a couple of ...
