I made it to USCF 2050 back in 1983, then quit. Now I'm a rusty old man :) Full Member

raymondhow: < Good Evening: 5.5/6 with one already known for the week. Saw the first two moves--almost too obvious--but Black's "39th Step" came as a complete surprise. > So you gave yourself half credit for first two moves? I saw those too, but didn't consider that enough for any ...

raymondhow: I was dubious about 16.Bxe4 but I chose it, but then wanted to play 17.Qf7+ which apparently doesn't lead to any advantage.

raymondhow: Darn, a Wednesday miss is depressing, really should have seen that. I thought after trading queens, the pawn would queen.
   Dec-28-21 S P Sethuraman vs N Guliyev, 2019 (replies)
raymondhow: I found the text move 33.Rf8+, queen moves seemed less clear to me. Less tricky than yesterday..
   Dec-27-21 Lachex vs J Nogueiras, 1990 (replies)
raymondhow: Thought that was pretty tricky for a Monday..

raymondhow: < mel gibson: I saw the first ply straight away this is more a Friday puzzle..> I saw the first six plies, but didn't solve it.
   Dec-25-21 G Orlov vs Glek, 1987 (replies)
raymondhow: No solve here. I wanted to play 9...Ne3 expecting 10.Bxe3 Bxe3 thinking my bishop would dominate the position, but forgot how exposed my own king was.
   Dec-24-21 Geller vs G Borisenko, 1955 (replies)
raymondhow: No solve for me. Got the first move, but then wanted to play 57...Rxf5+ before the knight fork, thinking that would simplify. But no, it allows the white king to invade and take my remaining pawns.
   Dec-23-21 D Gormally vs C Morrison, 2001 (replies)
raymondhow: I got the first four moves, then played 34.Qxb7 seeing it would lead to massive material loss by black.
   Dec-22-21 Suba vs Ibanez, 1993 (replies)
raymondhow: After the first two moves, my instinct was to play 23.Rh4+ which takes just a bit longer to mate.
