   Dec-05-22 A Kubbel vs Ragozin, 1929 (replies)
benveniste: Since it's Monday, I tried the Queen Sac first. Perhaps that was the point of the puzzle?
   Oct-06-22 T Espig vs G Braun, 1977 (replies)
benveniste: I started with the following sequence, but got lazy and didn't work out all of Black's possible responses. ♘g5 g7 ♘e4
   Jun-07-22 Unzicker vs Tal, 1975 (replies)
benveniste: A valuable exercise in how to get your opponent to resign quickly. 29. c4 wins easily as well, but 29. ♕xe5 makes the loss obvious.
   Apr-25-22 V Gunina vs A Galliamova, 2014 (replies)
benveniste: It being Monday, I spent _way_ too long trying to get ♕g8+ to work.
   Mar-31-22 Kaufman vs Chandler, 1979 (replies)
benveniste: I also went with 24 ... ♗b5. While there are several lines, all of them end up with black being up an exchange and a pawn with no counterplay for white.
   Mar-07-22 Vitiugov vs Giri, 2022 (replies)
benveniste: Good day. It looks like Giri is about to grab the bishop pair in a fairly open position.
   Feb-16-22 Aronian vs Nakamura, 2022 (replies)
benveniste: Good morning! Quiet game so far.
   Feb-15-22 Nakamura vs Aronian, 2022 (replies)
benveniste: @not not, that's an interesting view of "toying," given that Stockfish scores this position at 0.00.
   Feb-01-22 S Cvetkovic vs Plachetka, 1977 (replies)
benveniste: I saw that ♖f1 wins whether black takes the rook or not, but I didn't backtrack to realize that ♖x♗ is quicker.
   Jan-26-22 Giri vs Duda, 2022 (replies)
benveniste: The initial flurry of exchanges makes me think Giri was looking for a quick draw.
