   Sep-04-10 A Istratescu vs B Amin, 2008 (replies)
krakukas: 63...? My solution is <63...Rf1+> 64. Kxg5 Rg1+ 65. Kf5 Rxg6 draw, since 66.Kxg6 is stalemate or 64. Kg4 Rg1+ 65. Kf4 Nh3+ 66. Kf5 Rg6 67. Kxg6 Nf4+ draw or 64. Ke5 Nf3+ and 65...Kxg7 draw
   Aug-06-10 Kramnik vs Anand, 2008 (replies)
krakukas: 5/5 yeah! At first I was tricked by tempting Rh1+, but after a long analysis I realised it's not the move. <42...Qf3> wins instantly. I'm not sure why it was so hard to spot for me. <<>: If we gave this one on a Monday or Tuesday, everybody would find
   Aug-03-10 Maczuski vs Kolisch, 1863 (replies)
krakukas: Mate in sree: 14 Qd8+ Kxd8 15 Bg5+ Ke8 16 Rd8X The archetypal chess puzzle, wow.
   Jul-30-10 Tal vs Golombek, 1958 (replies)
krakukas: After <30.Rf4!> Black is lost. However, Golombek didn't choose the best possible defence. 30...dxc5 from the game allows White to force checkmate few moves later. I think the most stubborn try is <30...Nd5> in attempt to get rid of f6 pawn. <31.Rxh4 Nxf6> Black ...
   Jul-30-10 S Sanchez Castillo vs E Ubiennykh, 2001 (replies)
krakukas: Hmm... looks like "catch the queen" puzzle. So: <15...Nxb3+ 16.axb3/cxb3 Re5> and badly placed queen costs White a Bishop at least. 17. Bg5, or what else? It's over anyway. You were at the wrong time in the wrong place, lady.
   Jul-28-10 K Bischoff vs Buhmann, 2008 (replies)
krakukas: Got it, 3/3. It took much longer than the previous one, however. Luckily, no need to use my secret weapon (a pencil) yet. Starting with Saturday, a pencil is a must for me to keep my thoughts in order.
   Jul-27-10 P Goluch vs N Paikidze, 2010 (replies)
krakukas: <Once> again a simple mate in two and a good story.
   Jul-26-10 Iturrizaga Bonelli vs V Kulakov, 2008 (replies)
krakukas: I'm so good today wow! Looking forward to next puzzles. <Once> Thanks for Indiana!
   Apr-04-10 Smyslov vs K Grigorian, 1976 (replies)
krakukas: Argh! I'm just an amateur! It was quite exhausting for me, but I got this one right. After <21.Rxf6+> there's much to analyse. To be honest, it took over 2 hours before I covered all the possible options. I couldn't dream of doing it without a pencil. I'm to chaotic to do all
   Apr-02-10 Smyslov vs C Kottnauer, 1946 (replies)
krakukas: 18.Nc5 Rc7 19.Nxd7 Qc8 20.Nf6++ if <20. ...Kd8> there is just <21.Qe8#> with the f6 knight and Rc7 Qc8 blocking the King. <20. ... Ke7> and 21.Ra7 is good indeed. Anyway, it's a part of solution I guess.
