   Apr-28-22 J Magem Badals vs J Oms Pallisse, 2010 (replies)
alshatranji: I couldn't find a response to 19...Qe7. After 20.Nf6+ Kh8, 21. Qe4 gxf6, 22. Qh5, Black simply plays 22... e5. Stockfish suggests first 21.Be5, a brilliant move which solves the problem. Now if Ra8, then Qe4 gxf6, 22. Qh5, and Black loses the queen.
   Mar-26-22 B Korpa vs T Meszaros, 2018 (replies)
alshatranji: 24.Bh7+ is another mistake; White should have played the humble 24.Qxh5. Finally, 28.Qe2 was a crucial error. White should have settled for the perpetual with 28.Rh8+ Kxh8 29.Qh5+ Kg7 30.Qh6+ Kf7 31.Qh5+.
   Feb-18-22 Geller vs Z Gofshtein, 1989 (replies)
alshatranji: So the first move that comes to mind is 20.Nxh7, which looks strong, but is quite obvious. But this is a Friday, so I thought further and found 20.Rxe7+. Would I do that over the board? I really don't know.
   Jul-17-21 P Romanovsky vs N Grigoriev, 1924 (replies)
alshatranji: Is this really chrisoewn in the first post? He is almost fully coherent. It's kind of eerie. "the revelation of Be6 dawned once I couldn't get Bxc8 to work"--that's very good.
   Jul-06-21 Kasparov vs A V Kharitonov, 1977 (replies)
alshatranji: timeclimber: <Black is not a random opponent; he was a GM. And Kasparov was only 14 years old at the time.> Well, Kharitonov was 18 at the time, and not even an IM yet. So it seems Kasparov did get lucky.
   Jun-25-21 Fischer vs Robatsch, 1962
alshatranji: 13.d5 seems interesting; even 12.d5.
   Jun-21-21 Winawer vs Bird, 1883
alshatranji: Funny how one oversight can ruin your entire game, against an accurate and persistent player.
   Jun-21-21 Winawer vs Bird, 1883 (replies)
alshatranji: So what is this defense? The reversed Bird?
   Jun-17-21 N Mohota vs J Arizmendi Martinez, 2006 (replies)
alshatranji: 28. Kf1 seems at first to provide better means of escape, but then 28...Bg2+ leads to some beautiful mate formations. I didn't see this; I was planning in response to 28. Kf1 on 28...Qh4, which I see now doesn't work.
   Jun-16-21 S Ionov vs A Loginov, 2000 (replies)
alshatranji: Is this supposed to be a Wednesday puzzle? Too early? No comments? Something weird is going on.
