   Jan-27-23 Van Wely vs A Fishbein, 1993 (replies)
 
jrredfield: As others have said, pretty obvious, at least through 23 Qf4. Then I saw various diverging paths and wasn't sure. Still easier than a couple of previous puzzles this week for me.
 
   Jan-26-23 I Krush vs J Becerra Rivero, 2000 (replies)
 
jrredfield: White made two bad mistakes here. After 36 ... Qf2 37 Qxb8 Bh5, White should have played 38 Qc7 instead of 38 b7. It was premature to think of promoting when the White Q was needed to stave off Black's threat. With 38 Qc7, White would still have had about a pawn lead. Black then ...

jrredfield: I chose 20 ... Bxf4, thinking to further decimate White's King safety and get something in return for losing the Bishop. Not a bad move: 21 gxf4 Rd8 22 Qc4 Rd1+ 23 Ke2 Rd4 24 Qc8+ Rd8 25 Qc3, giving White about a 4 to 5 pawn advantage. However, the two moves <mel gibson> ...
 
   Jan-24-23 G Capelli vs N Sulava, 1989 (replies)
 
jrredfield: Saw this very quickly, easier than yesterday. 28 ...Nxf3+ leads to a quick doom for White. The longest White can hold out is 29 Kh3 Rh7+ 30 Kg2 Qxg4+ 31 Kf1 Nxd2+. If 29 Bxf3, then 29 ... Rh7+ 30 Bh5 Rxh5+.
 
   Jan-23-23 Keres vs Bogoljubov, 1936 (replies)
 
jrredfield: My gut immediately said 36 Qxd6+ but I failed to see the full tactical sequence to put White ahead (rook vs. bishop) by capturing the Black Q. So I wasn't completely sure. Can't claim credit, not even on a Monday. Maybe tomorrow will be more Monday-ish.
 
   Jan-21-23 J Balogh vs Keres, 1937 (replies)
 
jrredfield: I labored over 24 f6 vs. 24 e6. I knew that the winning approach was a move by one of those pawns. Of course, I picked the wrong one (e6). Actually, e6 still give White an advantage of one or two pawns, but 24 f6 or 24 Bc1 are clearly better choices. Either puts considerable ...
 
   Jan-20-23 Rubinstein vs Vidmar, 1918 (replies)
 
jrredfield: According to Komodo Dragon, White can force a 3-fold repetition (a draw): 19.f3 Nc5+ 20.Kf2 Na4 21.Qb5 Qd2+ 22.Kg3 Re6 23.Qxf5 Rg6+ 24.Kh4 Rh6+ 25.Kg3 Rg6+
 
   Jan-19-23 Z Kovacs vs E McCormick, 1955 (replies)
 
jrredfield: I spent a while looking at 31 h6+ but then settled for 31 Rh1 (31 ... Re8 32 hxg6 Qxg6 33 Rh4 Kf8 34 b3 Ne5 35 Qc3 cxb3 36 Qxb3 etc.). The engine shows 31 h6 as best, but 31 b3, 31 Rh1 and 31 hxg6 as also winning.
 
   Jan-18-23 B Maksimovic vs M Jevtic, 2006 (replies)
 
jrredfield: I looked at 31 Nf5+ initially but then couldn't stop looking at 31 f5, which I chose. Then I consulted Komodo Dragon and it agrees with my choice: +15.28 31.f5 Qxe5 32.f6+ Qxf6 33.Rxf6 d4 34.Rxf7+ Rxf7 35.Nxf7 Rxg2+ 36.Kf1 Rc2 37.Qh8+ Kxf7 38.Qh7+ Kf6 39.Qxb7 Rc3 40.Rxa5 +8.94 ...
 
   Jan-17-23 M Angelis vs E Paoli, 1988 (replies)
 
jrredfield: 27 Rxg7+ leads to two paths I see right away. 27 ... Kxg7 28 Rg1+ Kf8 Qxf6+ or 27 ... Kxg7 28 Rg1+ Kf7 29 Qh7 Ke6 30 Qxc7. Either way, Black is toast very quickly.
