   Dec-30-21 D Gukesh vs Makan Rafiee, 2019
coachjay: Definitely incorrect notation as currently posted. 23.Nf6+ must have been played instead of Nxh6, as Black saves the queen with 23. ... Nxh6 24.Bxh6, then ignore the bishop. (or even 23. ... Kh8).
   Dec-10-14 D Freeman vs M Legein, 2011 (replies)
coachjay: A fun game by the man of the hour! Congrats on 13 years of fun for all of us Daniel!
   Dec-24-13 Santa Claus (replies)
coachjay: Dear Santa, I already have a premium membership (best investment of the year - especially for a chess coach), and I wanted to tell you that my entire family has enjoyed the Present Hunt this year. Very creative. Thanks for all your hard work on that! Merry Christmas - Coach Jay ...
   Jun-30-11 Efimov vs Shirov, 1991 (replies)
coachjay: Abuzic - Thanks for those references! Great variations to know. Great games to review.
   Jun-28-11 Vescovi vs Karpov, 2004 (replies)
coachjay: What a coincidence. Larry Christiansen was player of the day yesterday, and he had a VERY quick game against a World Champion who blundered badly. You guessed it - Karpov!
   Apr-06-11 Pachman vs Guimard, 1955 (replies)
coachjay: Couldn't tell who was winning for much of the game. Many games in one. Nice!
   Feb-16-11 Tal vs D Keller, 1959 (replies)
coachjay: At several junctures in this game, Tal puts his attack on hold for a move to play defense of solidify. Then at other points he moves pieces to squares that your brain tells you are off-limits. Amazing!
   Jan-12-11 Ponomariov vs Wang Hao, 2007 (replies)
coachjay: Kellmano - Thanks!
   Nov-24-10 O Loewenborg vs M Marchand, 1916 (replies)
coachjay: Black simply walks into mate on the final move. Instead, 24. ... Kd6 leads to a line in which Black gives up the queen for White's rook, but it's still roughly equal. My guess is that the game really continued 22. Qe5+ Kf7 and 23. Qg7#.
   Nov-11-10 C Duncan vs T Gavriel, 1993 (replies)
coachjay: Awww. White had all of the cool moves, but loses in the end. I guess "cool" doesn't necessarily mean "good".
