   Oct-14-15 Goryachkina vs A Nasybullina, 2014 (replies)
reticulate: 24. Ne7 is probably good enough to win, but 24...Kh8 seems to stretch things out for a while. 24. Bxd5 is instantly lethal.
   Oct-04-15 Makarichev vs Alburt, 1978 (replies)
reticulate: I'm with Phony Benoni on this one. I "saw" pretty much everything EXCEPT the need to get the bishop to G4. Everything I tried after 23. Rae1 seemed to lead to a big advantage for White, but I couldn't find the clincher, which is the almost leisurely relocation of the bishop to ...
   Sep-23-15 Mamedyarov vs Caruana, 2015 (replies)
reticulate: Really an excellent attacking game from Mamedyarov, and I thought the finish from 31. Ng5 on was beautifully done.
   Sep-16-15 M Pyernik vs P Moulin, 1983 (replies)
reticulate: When I saw that Pyernik had played 29. Rc3, I thought my choice of 29. Nh5 must be flawed in some way. But I could not find a way out for Black. Thanks to all for reassuring me that the rook move is indeed superfluous.
   Sep-03-15 Svidler vs Khismatullin, 2015 (replies)
reticulate: I love a high-quality X-ray move! I remember a beautiful one that Fischer pulled against Bisguier during his amazing run through the 1963-64 USA championship. You can see it here: Fischer vs Bisguier, 1963
   Aug-30-15 V Bogdanovski vs Golubev, 1991 (replies)
reticulate: Once again, it's not the move (39...Rg3) but rather the clinching move after the move (40...Nf5) that I failed to see, as also happened to me on Saturday's puzzle. Today, I was trying to figure out whether Black would have to give up the Queen and try for a pawn-knight-bishop ...
   Aug-29-15 T Stanciu vs A Maciejewski, 1974 (replies)
reticulate: It's pretty easy to see that e6 is the key square, and so undermining it with 22. Rxf7 is relatively straightforward as well. But what to do after 23...Kxf7? I looked hard to 23. Qh7, but could not figure out a response to 23....Rh8. Then 23. Rf1, which does seem to lead to a ...
   Jun-26-15 Ragozin vs Veresov, 1945 (replies)
reticulate: Is the proper ending here to trade off the queen for the two rooks (i.e. 34....R(f) f2; 35. Qg3+ Kf7; 36. QxR RxQ; 37. KxR) then cash in the big White pawn majority, or is there some mating attack that I'm missing?
   Jun-15-15 L Carranza vs Capablanca, 1911 (replies)
reticulate: Black is a pawn down in a rook ending, yet has a completely won game. Beautifully done.
   May-22-15 Fischer vs Tal, 1959 (replies)
reticulate: Now I see that I erroneously had the Black Queen on a4 rather than c6. That makes a big difference!
