   Oct-18-21 J L Watson vs S Cronick, 1966 (replies)
gawain: Easy even for a Monday. An attractive swallow's tail mate.
   Sep-28-21 H Olafsson vs S Agdestein, 1987 (replies)
gawain: I mistakenly thought 25...Qh3 would win for Black.
   Sep-20-21 E Schiller vs T Redman, 1975 (replies)
gawain: I did not get this on the first go-round. A few minutes later I took a second look and found the mate right away. How did I miss it the first time?
   Sep-14-21 J Frenklakh vs E Schiller, 1994 (replies)
gawain: I could see only one candidate move. Fortunately it was the right move.
   Sep-13-21 A Sandrin vs W Shipman, 1946 (replies)
gawain: <goldfarbdj: Qf2+ was the intuitively obvious move, but it took me an oddly long time to notice that after the king took the knight, Qf3 was mate.> My experience exactly! An oddly long time.
   Sep-08-21 B Lalic vs Kengis, 1997
gawain: To my credit, I saw that White could safely play 36 Rg6+ since 36...QxR allows 37 Qh4# To my shame, I did not see how White would follow up after Black's better reply 36... Kh3. 37 Qg5 was too subtle for me.
   Sep-06-21 R Fontaine vs M Sebag, 2003 (replies)
gawain: I could see nothing better then trading the two rooks for Black's queen and pawn, with a seemingly winning position. Then I realized that in fact there *is* nothing better than that.
   Aug-10-21 Panno vs Spassky, 1955 (replies)
gawain: Very easy--but also very nifty.
   Aug-03-21 Plachetka vs G Kluger, 1972
gawain: <OhioChessFan> Quite right. The solution to this one leaped out at me. Yesterday, not so much.
   Jul-21-21 Myagmarsuren vs M Cuellar Gacharna, 1967
gawain: I didn't get this one.
