   Oct-28-22 Vaganian vs K Grigorian, 1975 (replies)
YetAnotherAmateur: The first 2 moves were relatively easy: 30. Rxf2 solves a lot of problems for white. 30. ... Qxf2 (there's nothing better) 31. Qxd3 eliminates black's passer and makes the question more of "win or draw". 31. ... Bg6 seems like the obvious next step for black. But now what?
   Jul-19-17 A Gavrilov vs B Grachev, 2007 (replies)
YetAnotherAmateur: <Once> From your diagrammed position, it seems to me like 38. ... Bxc3 might be better than 38. ... Qxc3: Trading down isn't really an option, because it leaves white with a B v B+N and doubled queenside pawns vs kingside majority.
   Mar-06-17 K P Surya vs K Rathnakaran, 2015 (replies)
YetAnotherAmateur: I love Mondays! 33. ... Qh1+ forces 34. Nxh1 Rh1# finishes it off. This works because the Ne4 and f3 pawn keep the white king stuck on the back rank just as surely as white pawns would.
   Feb-15-17 N Pert vs F Dinger, 2007 (replies)
YetAnotherAmateur: First off, white must check or defend against 49. ... Rd1+ 50. Re1 Rxe1# That narrows our options considerably. 49. Qg7+ seems to be the right starting move, leaving black with few options. <agb2002> helpfully wrote out all the lines I had worked out, so I won't ...
   Feb-13-17 Tal vs Simagin, 1956 (replies)
YetAnotherAmateur: One description I've heard about Tal's incredible willingness to part with material: he felt that was the fastest way to get rid of his own pieces stopping up his attacks.
   Feb-08-17 Kasparov vs Bareev, 2001 (replies)
YetAnotherAmateur: I was looking too hard at 39. Ne4. This did several things that seemed worth doing: 1. Opened up the threat of Qd8, especially if black was dumb enough to play Bxe4 2. Threatened the black queen. 3. Threatened the black c3 pawn. 4. Overprotected the Rg3. Play might ...
   Feb-07-17 Sasikiran vs Areshchenko, 2005 (replies)
YetAnotherAmateur: I got the initial combination: 27. ... Rxe4+ 28. Kxe4 Bf5+ 29. Kd4 (best for maintaining defense of the central pieces and lines for the white bishop) Bxb1 Stopping the d-pawn, though, presents a real challenge, because white has the right bishop. For example, 30. d6 Bf5 ...
   Feb-06-17 R A Dowden vs S Yee, 2016 (replies)
YetAnotherAmateur: Wouldn't be Monday without a great queen sac, right? 40. Qxh7+ Kxh7 (forced) 41. Rh5+ Bh6 (also forced) 42. Rxh6#
   Feb-02-17 P Danenhower vs Spassky, 1971 (replies)
YetAnotherAmateur: <tivrfoa> I looked at 27. ... Nh2 for a while. It's definitely immune from capture: 28. Kxh2?? Qxg3# and 28. Rxh2? Qxg3+ 29. Kh1 or Kf1 Qg1# And of course it threatens Nxf3 as well. However, white has the option of ignoring the knight and defending against the real ...
   Jan-31-17 S Schweber vs Spassky, 1955 (replies)
YetAnotherAmateur: Another couple of lines: 35. ... Rd1 36. Kf2 Qc2+ 37. Ke3 (Kg1? Qg2#) Rxf1 and white cannot prevent Rf3# (I particularly like how the c5 pawn is key to this one working). 35. ... Rd1 36. Rf3 Qxf3 37. Qxd1 Qxd1+ 38. Kf2 Qf3+ 39. Ke1 (Kg1? Qg2#) Qg2 and all white can do is
