stacase: Instead of 26.Rh7+ I would have moved 26.Nxd5+ forking black's King & Queen and forcing 26...exd5 then 27. Re1+ But 26. Nxd5+ exd5 27. Re1+ Kd8 28. Rxe8+ Bxe8 29. Qxf6+ Qe7 and White has run out of gas and is done.

stacase: Has there ever been a more obvious first move for a Friday puzzle than 26.Bxh6 ?

stacase: Took a few seconds to find 22...Rxc2
 
   Oct-13-21 Razuvaev vs Z Mestrovic, 1981 (replies)
 
stacase: Somewhat similar to yesterday's opus, only this time I got it right. Yesterday was a real "DOH!" experience.
 
   Oct-10-21 Ponomariov vs Topalov, 2005 (replies)
 
stacase: About 5 seconds to see the first two moves, the rest, not so much.

stacase: Spent a little time on searching for a Queen sacrifice - Monday you know, and then I looked at the Rook. Ha! Forced mate in two (-:
 
   Sep-29-21 Stefansson vs Piket, 1998 (replies)
 
stacase: My long gone brother always said, "Look for one of your pieces that isn't doing his job!" Yes, what is that useless Bishop doing still sitting at home?" As always I accept my opponent's resignation, even when it's a surprise (-:
 
   Sep-26-21 Naiditsch vs P K Wells, 2000 (replies)
 
stacase: 19.Bxe6 Was the only "puzzle" move - the rest, not so much.
 
   Sep-20-21 T Oyunbaatar vs I Chahrani, 2008 (replies)
 
stacase: I think I solve it a little faster each time it comes up.
 
   Sep-18-21 Vasiukov vs R Gunawan, 1988 (replies)
 
stacase: 19 Nxd5 is what I would have done over the board. Two Pawns and control of the center of the board for a Knight looked like a pretty good deal. Well 20.Bxd5 didn't happen - why I don't know.
