   Aug-07-21 Dautov vs Krasenkow, 2002 (replies)
rodchuck: Sorry black queen :-(
   May-07-21 Lutikov vs V Osnos, 1965 (replies)
rodchuck: I like Messiah's deep insights into the last few games - they are really terrible!
   Apr-19-21 Khalifman vs Dreev, 1998
rodchuck: After 11. ....b4 I tend to agree with <Random Visitor>. The rather standard, but developing move of 11.... Nbd7 seems a good precaution against the knight at e4. No doubt Dreev saw this, but decided on a more adventurous but risky line to inject some dynamism into the game.
   Mar-10-21 H Tikkanen vs L Babujian, 2005 (replies)
rodchuck: What happens after 32...Ndf3+ 33. gxf3 Nxf3+ 34. Kf1 Qxc4+ 35.Qe2? White seems OK
   Mar-08-21 Tisdall vs L Christiansen, 1995 (replies)
rodchuck: 39. Rb8 Rxe4 40. Rxd8+ Re8 41.Rxe8+ Kxe8 42. Kxe2 probably wins too, but clumsy compared to the actual play
   Jan-28-21 L Spassov vs M Marin, 1993 (replies)
rodchuck: <eyalbd> Yes, I went with 25...Re3 too, but on reflection, I don't think that after winning the queen, it is as conclusive as the game continuation; 27. Rd2 and white still has some counterplay, as the pawn on e7 seems lost after the queen moves. (25...Re3 26.Rxe3 Qxc2. ...
   Dec-11-20 A Cramling Bellon vs Esperanca Caxita, 2018 (replies)
rodchuck: After Qh6, I think not Nf5 but Ng6 threatening gxh6.
   Nov-12-20 Arno Nickel (replies)
rodchuck: How is it possible to lose almost 600 rating points with an overall record of 66.9%?
   Jul-26-20 Dvoirys vs Timoscenko, 1988 (replies)
rodchuck: Despite the gobbeledygook propagated by chrisowen, he inevitably seems to come up with the "correct" move to solve the potd. If he uses no external or engine help, he is obviously (to quote Gerald Abrahams in his book,Test your Chess, Constable 1963, p. 107), a real chess player! ...
   Mar-24-20 Ivkov vs Gufeld, 1964 (replies)
rodchuck: I guess after 22 ...Qxd6, there follows 23 Nh5 Ne6 (the black Queen is pinned)24 Ng5 with unstoppable mate.
