   Dec-06-22 F Bohatirchuk vs N Kopaev, 1938 (replies)
steinitzfan: This one was a lot of fun. After the queen sac moving the knight to f5 is about as good as the text. Although the variations are all very short after either of these moves, I found them surprisingly difficult. Not easy to see all the different ways that those minor pieces and ...
   Nov-22-22 E Agrest vs Vitiugov, 2006
steinitzfan: Beautiful play. A lot of tactics and variations in that little space of moves.
   Oct-22-22 Albin vs O Bernstein, 1904 (replies)
steinitzfan: Odd. I didn't get it. I usually get Monday puzzles - even when they come up on Saturdays. I rejected Qf3 out of hand because I didn't think Black had the backup. Everybody knows that when you sacrifice on KB6 you have to go in a la Morphy with multiple bishop and rook checks to ...
   Oct-20-22 A Reggio vs H Fahrni, 1905 (replies)
steinitzfan: If this puzzle was stated as Black to play and draw, it would be easy. What's hard is seeing that candidate winning lines go nowhere. The temptation to bring that other rook or other bishop into play with tempo is very strong.
   Oct-17-22 K Shanava vs I Cheparinov, 1995 (replies)
steinitzfan: Interesting that when Stockfish analyzes the final position he doesn't have Black taking the knight. He can last longer a knight down than he can with those pawns split on the king side.
   Sep-22-22 J H Donner vs C van den Berg, 1959 (replies)
steinitzfan: This must be an easy Thursday. I was able to get it.
   Sep-19-22 M Bezold vs Kharlov, 1992 (replies)
steinitzfan: Not all two-movers are created equal. This queen sac combines deflection and obstruction themes. I got the Rb8 line though. I knew it wasn't a Monday solution.
   Aug-29-22 D Malla vs W Kobese, 2006 (replies)
steinitzfan: I thought at first that this was one of those Monday puzzles for the Krell that Dr. Morbius dug up. (Sci fi reference) Actually, I should have got it. I saw that the black queen was poisoned on c3 but it didn't occur to me that picking off the a3 pawn was adequate.
   Aug-26-22 S Vokarev vs G Prakken, 2000
steinitzfan: Amazing tactics. With 20 Bg6 White can disentangle everything that's hanging and retain the extra piece. Wish't I could play like that.
   Aug-08-22 W Springe vs H Gebhard-Elsass, 1927 (replies)
steinitzfan: Correction. Those bishops aren't criss-crossing. They're pointed in the same direction. Beware of them too.
