I made it to USCF 2030 back in 1983, then quit. Now I'm a rusty old man :) Full Member

raymondhow: Only half credit for me. I got the first three moves, then wanted to play 34.Qf6+ Kg8 35 Rf3 which gives black an escape square and counterplay with Rc8. Still winnable apparently, but not the easy win of 34 Qg5+.
   Jan-06-23 R Antonio vs R Phillips, 2006 (replies)
raymondhow: I found the first five moves, then played 43.Qh8+ which apparently mates faster than the game move. Pretty easy Friday.
   Jan-03-23 J Werle vs Yiyi Xiao, 2016 (replies)
raymondhow: I thought at first to play 34.Re7, but after 34...Qg8 the position didn't quite look "easy". Took me quite a while to come up with 34.Nf4 instead.
   Dec-22-22 K Angelov vs E Henrichsen, 2013 (replies)
raymondhow: I got the first three moves, then wanted to play 20.Nd7+ which the engine likes as well.
   Dec-15-22 Vasiukov vs A Grushevsky, 1959 (replies)
raymondhow: I went with 33.Nh5, engine says it works as well.
   Dec-13-22 Saric vs A Galkin, 2007 (replies)
raymondhow: I got the first move then wanted to play 21...Nxg6, thinking after 22 Qxg6 I would just take the white bishop and be a piece ahead. The engine says that works, so I will take credit for this one.
   Dec-11-22 K Angelov vs D Prodanov, 1981 (replies)
raymondhow: Got the first two moves, then chose 31.Rxd5 which line mates one move sooner. Pretty easy Sunday.
   Dec-10-22 P Passerotti vs G Andruet, 1984 (replies)
raymondhow: I found the first three moves, but went astray with 22...Rc7 which turns out seriously losing. No points for me.
   Dec-06-22 F Bohatirchuk vs N Kopaev, 1938 (replies)
raymondhow: I went with 24 Nxe6 seeing the mate in three, or in two if Black doesn't take the queen.
   Dec-04-22 J P Wallace vs A Kveinys, 1996 (replies)
raymondhow: The first move was pretty easy, then I wanted to play 22.Qh5 right away, figuring Black has no time for 22... Qxc4. After 22... Kd8, appears likely to transpose to the game line. I get half credit at least.
