   Jun-13-22 A Ivanov vs M Taleb, 2003 (replies)
 
geeker: Took a while to find this, since no sac or mate seems available. 27. R:c8+ wins the Black Queen, though.
 
   May-05-22 Stein vs Petrosian, 1961 (replies)
 
geeker: I saw 26. Bxe6 quickly, but didn't realize it was so crushing and was surprised by the immediate resignation.
 
   May-03-22 Euwe vs E Palmer, 1919 (replies)
 
geeker: "Rather amazing that a world champ would miss it on the prior move. Maybe this was a simul?" Euwe was about 18 years old (not sure of the date of the game) at the time. Doubt it was a simul.
 
   May-02-22 J J O'Hanlon vs B Goulding Brown, 1914 (replies)
 
geeker: It's Monday...First candidate move: how can I put the Queen en prise and win? Mirabile dictu, 25. Qh7+!
 
   Apr-15-22 Westerinen vs Hebden, 1988 (replies)
 
geeker: Agreed, I'd have played 15. g4 and was surprised to see a different game continuation.
 
   Apr-02-22 J Whitehead vs B Zueger, 1977 (replies)
 
geeker: I saw the first 2 moves, but no clear win. Probably would have played them OTB because of the resulting initiative.
 
   Jan-11-22 A Ozsvath vs G Kluger, 1962 (replies)
 
geeker: I agree that 32...Ne4+ is marginally better. But the Exchange up ending with 3 connected passers (after 32...Nb1+) is an easy win.
 
   Dec-28-21 S P Sethuraman vs N Guliyev, 2019 (replies)
 
geeker: I thought about the Queen sac, but was not confident about it so the Rook sac was the first candidate I examined. Quickly saw the mate, so forgot about the Q sac idea! Pity.
 
   Sep-17-21 Hodgson vs A D Martin, 1992 (replies)
 
geeker: Considering that White had just sac'd a Knight on f7, this was really a spectacular combination! Granted, Black's position after 15...h6 was fugly and begging for destruction.
 
   Aug-23-21 N Davies vs G Crawley, 1984 (replies)
 
geeker: Count me as *another* who went for 29...Rxf2+. First candidate move, it worked so I stopped there. Should have followed the chess cliche "When you see a good move, look for a better one"...
