newzild: Add me to the list of peeps who took quite a while to spot 31. Qg4.
   Jun-26-21 Pinkus vs J Moskowitz, 1942 (replies)
newzild: <Phony Benoni> <Graham Clayton> True that 52. Rxc3 h2 53. Rh3 gxh3 54. Bf3 stops the pawn from queening. So how about 52. Rxc3 h2 53. Rh3 Nxh3 54. Kg2 g3 followed by 55. Nf2.
   Jun-24-21 Nepomniachtchi vs K Alekseenko, 2021
newzild: <<Andrew Chapman>: Why does Black resign? Is it because White wins the black a pawn and then marches his own a pawn?> White will win a second pawn, and Black won't be able to hold the draw even with opposite-coloured bishops. 31...Ke8? 32. Bc6 31...Kd8 32. Qf8+ and ...
   May-16-21 B Socko vs Krasenkow, 2000 (replies)
newzild: My first attempt was 32. Qh3, threatening 33. Rg6+ Kh1 34. Qf3+. But Black can play 32...f3.
   May-12-21 B Beffie vs P F van Hoorn, 1923 (replies)
newzild: Interesting game. Terrible pun. Would have been better without the irrelevant 'Kellog's'.
   May-09-21 E Alekseev vs I Krush, 2013 (replies)
newzild: Entertaining attack by White.
   May-07-21 Keene vs R Eggmann, 1965 (replies)
newzild: I like it how the only note by International Master Raymond Keene is a note saying 'Notes by International Master Raymond Keene'.

newzild: <FSR> He tore Kashdan a new one in this game: W Adams vs Kashdan, 1940
   Apr-26-21 A Lastin vs D Bocharov, 2008
newzild: White's initiative almost played itself after Black missed 16. e5, exploiting the weakness of f7. <goodevans>, <Brenin>: One idea of 22...Qa5 was to defend against the threatened sacrifice on d5.
