   Dec-13-15 Jobava vs R Hovhannisyan, 2014 (replies)
Zatrikion: <gofer: Why did black allow 27 Nxc6 and why didn't white play 27 Nxc6> Maybe after 27.Nxc6 black responds with: 27..Qf6 threatening both the knight and the rook. After 28.Nce5 Rxe5 29.Nxe5 Qxe5, Black equalizes.
   Oct-26-14 Shabalov vs Aronian, 2004 (replies)
Zatrikion: An astonishing continuous attack from black! What troubles me is why black did not play 37..b4 keeping the a file closed? After 37.a4, b4 square is weakened, c pawn pinned and pressured. Sure I am missing something
   Oct-21-12 J Peters vs L Day, 1977 (replies)
Zatrikion: It is tempting for white to play <34.Bf3> and prevent mating threats (34..Qxc2 35.Be2 and then 35..e4 36.Rde7), but after <34..Qxd7 35.Rf8 Qd4 36.Qh4 Qd2>, white is doomed. So the counter attack is the best option: <34.Rxb7+ Qxb7> (34..Kxb7 35.Bf3 pinning the Q) ...
   Oct-20-12 J Lewi vs J Adamski, 1969 (replies)
Zatrikion: I would go with: 18..Qxc3 19.Bxc3 Nxe2+ 20.Kh1 Nxc3 (forking Q and R) 21.Qb3 Nxb1 22.Qxb1 f3 (B is trapped and lost, so White can get the pawn back) 23.Bxf3 gxf3 0-1 (this can lead to a winning ending game for Black) Q vs R+B+N
   Oct-08-12 Z Czajka vs A Zakaria, 1994 (replies)
Zatrikion: 29..Qg3+ 30.fxg3 fxg3# Cool!
   Oct-07-12 K Mokry vs Gheorghiu, 1985 (replies)
Zatrikion: <20.Nd5> (double threatening the Q and the King's side through the a1-h8 diagonal) Black is lost if he doesn't capture the N: <20..Qc8 21.Nxf6 Nxf6 (21..h5, Rxh5+ mate soon) 22.Bxf6+ Kg8 23.Rxh7> mate soon So, after Black accepting the N we have: ...
   Sep-30-12 P Nikolic vs M Gurevich, 1993 (replies)
Zatrikion: <Jimfromprovidence> I quess we will never know why 26..Rf8 was not played and what the outcome would be. So glad to see the same observation!
   Sep-23-12 M Dutreeuw vs C Horvath, 1992 (replies)
Zatrikion: 17.Qxh5! gxh5 <(or else Black is a piece down)> 18.Rg3+ Bg7 The other 2 options lose immediately: a) 18..Bg5 19.Rxg5+ Kh8 20.Nxe6+ f6 21.Bxf6+ R(N)xf6 22.Nxc7, White is a piece and two pawns up b) 18..Kh8 20.Nxe6+ f6 21.Nxc7, White is a piece and a pawn up Back in the ...
   Sep-22-12 A Valsecchi vs P Bontempi, 2012 (replies)
Zatrikion: Very cool! It is all forced! At first I was thinking to place the R on h file to put pressure on h6, but with Q sacrifice, K is dragged downtown and finally gets mated: 25.Qxh6+ Kxh6 26.Rh4+ Kg5 (26..Kg7, Rh7#) 27.f4+ Kxh4 28.g3+ Kh3 29.Bf1# Now, how did Black allowed ...
   Sep-15-12 P Hesse vs Smejkal, 1977 (replies)
Zatrikion: Black K has no space to breath with B and N controlling g7, h7 an h8. Only white has to do is open the d-file where he has his Rooks doubled and commence the attack: 34.Qxc4 dxc4 (d opened!) 35.Rxd8 1-0 Now if: 35..Rxd8 36.Rxd8 Qc7 38.Rh8+ Qh7 39.Nf7# Or let's say: ...
