   Oct-19-21 Barbero vs Larsen, 1991 (replies)
landshark: What I see here is W wants to play Ng6+ but if he does so right away it gives B time to involve his a7 R into the defense by moving the N on c7 out of the way. But if he plays Rh3 first, the threat of Ng6+ winning the Q+P with attack for R+N can only be defended by a Q move, and ...

landshark: Well I must be a good chess player again - Last week was a wipeout (started off 0/2 - a new PR for ineptitude), and here I am looking at a Thursday puzzle before going to bed on Wednesday (note to self: don't over do that!!) and getting it right in about 20 seconds. Maybe just ...
   Sep-29-21 Stefansson vs Piket, 1998
landshark: It had to be the easiest puzzle so far this week - It's the first one I got right!
   Sep-23-21 J I Zilber vs Suetin, 1957 (replies)
landshark: Anybody got analysis on 15... Bg4 instead of the game move 15... Nxe7? I don't have Premium so I can't get engine analysis on it - but it was my idea, going for rapid development, planning ... Rxe7 next followed by .... Rae8.
   Sep-19-21 Shabalov vs Arkell, 1991 (replies)
landshark: I seldom try to pursue Sunday puzzles to a conclusive result - today 18.Rxd5 stood out to me as a really good try, seeing how that N was B's only decent defender. I was going to go into guess-the-move mode after the expected 18.Rxd5 - was surprised by the beautiful play following ...
   Sep-15-21 A C Chow vs V Akobian, 2005 (replies)
landshark: Got it all the way through the final move - 32.... Kh8 giving W no mercy as his knight has no checks to help find it's way back to do anything about B's runaway d-pawn.
   Sep-12-21 Vaganian vs G Botterill, 1975 (replies)
landshark: After getting the first 4 moves right, my focus relaxed and I played Nd5 straightaway instead of interposing Qe6. Considering how tough puzzles have become recently, today felt like a reprieve. It really felt like the moves self-played.
   Sep-06-21 R Fontaine vs M Sebag, 2003 (replies)
landshark: 35.Rxf7 Qxf7 36.Rf6 .... If B defends the Q with ....Rh7, simply QxR because the Q is pinned by the R on f6 which is supported by the pawn on e5. Or.... 36....Qxf6 37.exf6 (!) threatening Qc8+ winning the h8 R and virtually anything B does can be met by e5 and e6 with a ...
   Sep-01-21 Vitiugov vs S Dyachkov, 2008 (replies)
landshark: I stared at it for 15 minutes late last night with no breakthrough. Looked at it for 45 seconds this morning and found Ng7. Elegantly interferes with Black's mating threat while crushing his defenses. Didn't analyze out to M8 as per Stockfish, but I'll take the full point - a ...
   Aug-31-21 Y Kryvoruchko vs I Cheparinov, 2009 (replies)
landshark: I thought I was a GM when I muffed Monday's puzzle a week ago. But today made up for that: 34.... Rxf4 35.Rxf4 Qc7 Black has an invincible pin and wins
