   Jan-17-09 Motylev vs A Iljushin, 2000 (replies)
fosca: Just to add to the tally, I went with Ne7+, but could only see a draw at best. I never looked at Bf6. I am learning quickly that I look at too few candidate moves (damn you, blitz!).
   Jan-16-09 Bareev vs V Akopian, 2000 (replies)
fosca: I see a draw with the obvious 69...QxQ, 70. RxQ, BxR, so there must be a win. Looking for checks yields nothing (Qxg3+, Rh1+), if BxR, then QxQ for white. The Queen is under attack, what else to do? 69...Qb7 threatening to win the rook. The Queen can't help directly: 70. Qf2 Bxg2 ...
   Jan-08-09 Y Anikaev vs A Khasin, 1990 (replies)
fosca: <dzechiel> "Excellent! I suspected something like this was in here, but I couldn't find it!!" Whew, now I don't feel like such a patzer for not being able to meet d6 satisfactorily and, therefore, rejecting d5. I settled on the very lame Rfe8 hoping Na5 would still be ...

fosca: MAJ, What sweet words you wrote: "33 ... Qe4 + is way better." The game continuation made me think I missed something which, of course, means I must not have seen the solution sufficiently clearly to take credit...

fosca: Thanks Chessgames Bookie. I guess I should have read the fine print, eh? Here I thought I found a loophole where you would pay out much more than you took in. Should've known that no self-respecting bookie would allow that....
   Mar-14-08 Short vs Psakhis, 1985 (replies)
fosca: UdayanOwen, Thanks for your response. Just note, based on your comments here, you are a much stronger player than am I. I noticed later that Qh7 covered the queening square. I meant absolutely no offense. I really, truly, just wanted to make sure that I was not missing something ...
   Jan-31-08 W Morrison vs J Bonin, 2001
fosca: I mean no disrespect to either player. However, unless there are major revisions to the game score, this game was either a comedy of errors or was intentionally thrown. Black is clearly winning as of move 35 (and really before that). While my earlier 35. Qxf3+ is not possible due to ...
   Apr-24-07 Karjakin vs Kaidanov, 2005
fosca: No, AlexanderMorphy. For whatever reason, Opening Explorer never goes beyond 20 moves, though theory often does.
