   Jan-01-06 Steinitz vs Lang, 1860 (replies)
 
VStrider: <psmith> i'd probably play 7..Bh6. If black had not played fg there would be no chance for the bishop sac to succeed. It doesn't win yet but it keeps black in the game. Usually when you are up in material, you almost always give something else up. Tempo and attacking chances ...

VStrider: wow, I missed this one. I saw Qf3 threatening mate and continued from there. eg. 31.Qf3 Qd6 32.Bf4 Qxd4 33.Rg2+ Kh8 etc. It's seems to be winning but it's not so clear cut. 31.Bh6 wins outright.

VStrider: This one was easy. It took me about 40 secs. Like <Minor Piece Activity> said, after you see the pin, it plays itself.

VStrider: <hotelriver> cause if 20...Qxe8 then 21.Nh5+ Kh7 22.Nf6+ Kg7 23.Nxe8+ and the black queen is gone.

VStrider: lol thx <cu8fan> i tried <font color="#CC6600"><that></font> but i never tried <that>. i just thought it wouldn't work. Like those rare queen sacs, they're simple and win the game but you intuitively don't even look at them :-)
 
   Aug-25-04 J Belson vs R E Martin, 1933 (replies)
 
VStrider: Looking at the position of the puzzle, i saw two options: 1) the obvious 20.Rxf7 followed by 21.Qf4 or 2) 20.Qg5 followed by 21.Qxg6 threatening mate either with 22.Qxf7 and 23.Qf8# or if black takes the queen, 22.Rf8#. There is no defence. If black tries to defend g6 with Rh6, ...

VStrider: White threatens a knight fork on c7 and b6. There's no way to escape both just by moving the king. Why didn't black just take the knight? (18.Bxe5) Looks like a 2 min internet game :-)
 
   Aug-21-04 R Goode vs Petrosian, 1954 (replies)
 
VStrider: [I think] 22.f4 was a critical mistake. The move takes away the only available square for the e2 knight. (Qd1-Nc1 is unthinkable cause it disconnects the rooks and white pieces would be badly placed.) 22.Nf4 was better. Maybe white thought its ok to play f4 cause he intended ...

VStrider: Calculoso, he played Rf5 cause any other move would lead to mate. 24...g6? 25.Qxg6+ Kh8 26.Rxg8# and 24...Kh8? 25.Rxg8# 24...Rf5 saves black from immediate mate but 25...exf5? he should play 25...Rd2 and if white tries to avoid the offer and keeps his Queen on the b1-h7 then ...
