   Jun-18-15 S Collins vs D Haessel, 2011 (replies)
franksp: Your solution looks good to me, Jindraz. 29 Qd4 Nf6 (Not 29...Ne5 30 Qxe5 Heavy piece to 7th rank 31 Qe8+ mating on the back rank) 30 Qf6 Rd7 (Must be that rook. Otherwise 31 Qxd8+ etc.)31 Qxg7+ Rxg7 32 Re7 Rc3 (32...R(c)g8 33 Nf7#) 33 Re8+ mating. Am I missing something?
   Jun-17-15 Boleslavsky vs Euwe, 1946
franksp: Black mates or wins both Queen and Rook. 42 K-h2 R-f2+ 43 K-g3 R-f3+ 44 K moves Rxh3#.
   Aug-28-12 Alfred Flatow (replies)
franksp: Fred's father, Kurt, was a good chess player. I joined Ashfield Chess Club shortly after I had learned the game. I asked the club president who was the best player in the club. He pointed out Kurt Flatow. So I challenged Kurt to a game of chess. He beat me. I played many games ...
   Feb-24-12 Capablanca vs J Rosenthal, 1909 (replies)
franksp: I feel I have found a treasure. I have two Capablanca game collections - one by Golembek and the other by Chernev. This game is in neither collection. Rosenthal seems to see he is losing and so sets up a pretty checkmate for Capablanca by 20...Nh5. If 20...N elsewhere, then 21.Be2 ...
   Feb-24-12 S Slipak vs F Braga, 1998 (replies)
franksp: My idea was 29.Rxf6 gf 30.Qxd5 Kh8 31.Bh6 (threat 32.Bg7+ Kg8 33.N checks winning the Queen) Rg8 32.Bg7+ Rxg7 33.Qxa8+ Rg8 34.Qxg8+ Kxg8 35.Rb8+ etc. Is there a counter to that?
   Jan-24-12 Edit Krizsan-Bilek (replies)
franksp: Is Edith Bilek related to Istvan Bilek?
   Jan-24-12 Paul Morphy (replies)
franksp: So many strong contemporary masters Morphy never played against - Steinitz, Blackburne, Chigorin, Zukertort, Mason, MacKenzie, Weiss, Winawer. What a shame.
   Jan-06-12 Duras vs H Wolf, 1907 (replies)
franksp: 36.Rxc6 starts a nice combination. 36...Rxc6 37.Q-d4 threatens 38.Q-d8 mating. The only defenses to that without giving up material are 37...Q-f6 (already covered) and 37...K-g8. Then 38.Q-d8+ K-f7 39.Q-d7+ K-f8 If 39...K-g8 40.Q-e8# If 39...K-f6 40.Qxc6+ winning. After 39...K-f8, ...
   Dec-25-11 L Christiansen vs Seirawan, 1978 (replies)
franksp: At move 38 White has a mate in 4. 38.Q-g5+ K-e6 39.R-h6+ f6 40.Rxf6+ ef 41.Qxf6#
   Jan-07-11 R Vera vs G Lebredo Zaragoitia, 1982 (replies)
franksp: Nice variations from move 26. If 26...f6, 27.Qh6 wins at least a rook If 26...Kd6, 27.Rxc8 Qxc8 28.Qf6 and, after Black moves the rook or protects it with the queen, 29.e7 or ef wins queen or rook or the pawn queens at f8.
