mayankk06: 21 Nxd5 was a tempting Queen sac. Black should have been wary of White offering his Queen just like that. After 21 .... Rxc2 22 Nxf6+, Black can either play 22 ... Bxf6 23 Bxf6 and wait to get mated on h8 by 24 Rh8# or as in the actual game, get mated by 22 ... Kf8 23 Ngh7+ Ke7 24
   Oct-23-22 Tartakower vs Meitner, 1909 (replies)
mayankk06: Black spent all his energies in saving the weak a6 pawn, bringing its Knight backwards from f6 to b8 , Bishop to c8 and lost all initiative in the process. It was only befitting that the a6 pawn stayed undefeated till the end. Just that Black King paid the price for it.
   Oct-22-22 Albin vs O Bernstein, 1904 (replies)
mayankk06: A better puzzle may have been - what can Black possibly do to lose from here. White's position is simply grim. The King is boxed between his own pieces, one Rook is hopelessly locked at h1 and so it is laying a Rook down, the other Rook is defending a mate at f2, the Knight has ...
   Oct-21-22 R Lev vs E Liss, 1998 (replies)
mayankk06: I saw the power of 21 ... Nf3. If the Knight is captured then 22 ... Bh3+ Kg1 seems to bracket the White King in a hopeless mating net. Black Rook controls the e file, Black Bishop controls the h3-f1 diagonal while White h1 Rook is trapped and also blocks a critical flight square ...
   Oct-20-22 A Reggio vs H Fahrni, 1905 (replies)
mayankk06: I saw the 20... Qxc3+ idea since Black is pretty much in a desperate situation and needs radical ideas. After 21 bxc3 Ba3+, I thought Black would win by either 22 Kc2 exf3+ 23 Bd3 Rb2+ or 22 Kd2 Rhd8+ Ke2 and then some combination of checks and exf3. However I couldn't make it ...
   Oct-14-22 Chigorin vs G Marco, 1905 (replies)
mayankk06: I saw the main themes in this puzzle. 1) White's monster pair of Bishops which can be unleashed by a Rook sac at either e5 or f6 2) White's supercharged Rook-Queen-Rook Battery on the f file which can be unleashed by a Bishop sac at e5. 3) Black's f8 Rook is defended twice by e6 ...
   Oct-13-22 H Koller vs C Di Caro, 2004 (replies)
mayankk06: The puzzle itself is straightforward due to White's back rank weakness. The b3 Knight can't move due to the threat of Rc1#. So the a1 Rook is undefended. White's opening strategy was basically to lure the Black Queen to b2 and then trap it. In trying so, it kept misplacing its ...
   Oct-12-22 A Esipenko vs V S Gujrathi, 2022
mayankk06: 39 ... g5 allowed the White Bishop to hide in the correct side of the Board, and assist in future pawn promotion. 39 ... Ne5 would have prevented this access and possibly have liquidated the game further to a drawn Rook ending.
   Oct-12-22 M Lubensky vs Geller, 1949
mayankk06: Such an interesting double blunder. Shows how everyone is so human without an engine, and superman with one. My first instinct was also that 33 ... Bxe3 34 Rxe3 Qh2+ 35 Kf1 Nxe3+ forking King and Bishop, and followed by Rf8 at some point, is just too much for the White King to ...
   Oct-12-22 Tseshkovsky vs I Polgar, 1964 (replies)
mayankk06: I also tried to see if 32 Nxg6 Bxd6 33 Nxh8 had any merit. I struggled to find the right response to 33 ... Nf4. It guards the h5 pawn, prevents an intrusion by White Queen and also stops g6 advance. If 34 Bxf4 exf4 35 Qxh5, Black has 35 ... f3+ and White's King is suddenly under ...
