   Nov-14-22 J Dobias vs J Schulz Sr, 1933 (replies)
 
landshark: Queen Sac Monday is in effect - Nice to get one at a glance for once
 
   Sep-25-22 S Sjugirov vs A Tjurin, 2008 (replies)
 
landshark: I quickly saw 24.Nef5+ with lots of compensation apparent if B captures. Didn't study the position for too long after the game continuation and missed the pretty (and fairly obvious) 25.Qg3
 
   Sep-14-22 E Paehtz vs Vitiugov, 2017
 
landshark: Yup. Didn't get that one. The motif I couldn't find was using the Q to attack white's h pawn... Nice tough puzzle
 
   Aug-12-22 V Georgiev vs V Dimitrov, 1996 (replies)
 
landshark: I got the first 2 moves without the beautiful heavy piece shuffle / sac in mind - and didn't find it. Very nice combination indeed!
 
   Aug-08-22 W Springe vs H Gebhard-Elsass, 1927 (replies)
 
landshark: In a speed game my bet is I'd have missed this. But because it was "very easy" I started looking for something more uncommon - Moral: In any position, always look for Q sacrifices!
 
   Jun-27-22 B Starck vs D Bertholdt, 1962 (replies)
 
landshark: After the quiet move 31.Qf2, mate appears unavoidable. That would have made a nice Wednesday puzzle - not many branches to it, but easy to miss.
 
   Jun-17-22 Yusupov vs Brunner, 1990 (replies)
 
landshark: It's a rare late-week puzzle that I play the same line as <Brenin> and get at least part of it exactly the same clear to the end... But that's exactly what I did here with his line a). I didn't follow line b) as far, seeing the game as over once the c-pawn queened. 3/4 ...
 
   May-23-22 Showalter vs Pillsbury, 1904 (replies)
 
landshark: Time for bed - I solved this for <Black> to move.
 
   May-21-22 Morozevich vs Movsesian, 2008 (replies)
 
landshark: When it comes to the weekend I almost <never> try to calculate thru to the end of anything I try - Often I can't even connect to the right idea for how to handle the position. So I'm very happy with today, that I quickly saw 25.Ndf5 with the themes of weakening Black's a1-h8
 
   May-20-22 P Haener vs O Mihok, 2011 (replies)
 
landshark: All it took to convince me was the position after 20... Rxb2 21. Qxb2 Bxd4 You just want to play such a position - A double pin on the c3 N and threat of .... Bxf2, along with that gorgeous pair of bishops eyeing virtually the entire board. What's not to like about it?
