   Mar-22-21 Pelletier vs C S Matamoros Franco, 2012 (replies)
nasher: Another solution (if you LOVE queen and pawn endgames, you have an hour to kill and enjoy torturing your opponent) is Qxd1. Stockfish says this is +11.
   Jan-14-19 G O'Toole vs R Haria, 2009 (replies)
nasher: The black bishop on a4 is totally useless. <chrisowen> loves 6 letter words beginning with v. If I am not mistaken, I counted 43 6-letter words which begin with the letter v, which included the popular phrase "vowums vimums" 11 times.
   Jan-08-19 K Mekhitarian vs W Arencibia Rodriguez, 2005 (replies)
nasher: <TheaN> I agree that Stockfish starting with Bd7+ is strange, but it does NOT keep Black from castling ... Black's move 15 was Kd8.
   Dec-24-18 A Planinc vs K Hulak, 1977 (replies)
nasher: Who does not love a queen sack plus mate in two Monday puzzle ?
   Oct-08-18 Batumi Olympiad (2018) (replies)
nasher: If two teams tie, we need to ask the question which team is the better of the two teams ? If these two teams played other and one team beats the other, then that team is the better of the two teams.
   Mar-12-18 Carlsen vs K Holm, 2018 (replies)
nasher: Monday puzzle ... supposed to easy ... it took me forever to find the mate in two. Then I noticed the white player was Carlsen and I said to myself Ï bet Carlsen saw the mate in two in about 2 seconds ... or maybe not.
   Sep-08-17 Nakamura vs L Bruzon Batista, 2017 (replies)
nasher: I guess this is why you never see anyone castle king side and put his rook back on the h-file.
   Jul-17-17 Flohr vs Bogoljubov, 1931 (replies)
nasher: Three things make this a difficult puzzle: (1) the g2 rook has three possible moves to consider and the knight has two possible moves to consider, (2) the answer is a quiet move, and (3) it is a Monday so I automatically look for something simple. This took me at least five minutes ...
   Jul-13-17 P Carlsson vs J Campos Moreno, 2006 (replies)
nasher: Can white win with Qe3 ? It attacks the black queen and threatens Bxg7.
   Jul-08-17 Bologan vs A Campanile, 1994 (replies)
nasher: If you are like me and you are looking for something to sacrifice, then this puzzle will be impossible to solve.
