stacase: Milwaukee simul (1937) (exhibition) I wonder if my Uncle Otto was in attendance. He would have been 27 at the time. In the '90s I used to drop by his house to play chess. I did win once in a while (-:

stacase: That Bishop sacrifice putting the Black into the breach was really cute. I did finally see it after casting around looking at how to take advantage of the discovered attack line-up. But after looking at the piece count and noting that Black has superior forces. I went for the ...

stacase: The lead off move was rather obvious

stacase: <ClassZPlaya: the same mate was possible at move 19: 19 ... Qc3+ 20. bxc3 Bxc3 ++> Good Catch (-:

stacase: <Czx: 30. Bg3!! Master move, way over my head.> Threatens to skewer Black's King & Queen. Black doesn't have any immediate threats to carry out while White's Bishop gets positioned to do the deed. Never happens of course, but as one of those little sayings when you post says ...

stacase: 35...Kc7 Forced 36.Nb5+ Ha! Forking Black's King and Queen. I didn't see that all the way from 32.Nxg6+ but I got it move for move for a Thursday (-:
 
   Aug-15-22 A Moran Nuque vs E Pupo, 1995 (replies)
 
stacase: That was easy.
 
   Aug-08-22 W Springe vs H Gebhard-Elsass, 1927 (replies)
 
stacase: Yes, it's Monday, so check out the Queen Sacrifice first and then maybe you won't stare at the board for five minutes trying to figure out what to do.

stacase: 22.Bxh7+ is blindingly obvious 23.Rg4 threatening mate is usually a good move (-: and 24.Qh5+ is obvious also. 25.Rxg7+ a kamikaze Rook not so obvious at first glance, but White needs to keep the Black King from going West and then 26.Bh6+ seals it.
