   Feb-25-23 A Ardeleanu vs D Bondoc, 1994 (replies)
steinitzfan: I was able to see that taking the knight after Ng6 would lose for Black. But as far as proceeding against Ke8 or Kg8, that's too much for me.
   Feb-13-23 A Hoffman vs D Pereyra Arcija, 1995 (replies)
steinitzfan: I like the simplification. When I'm a couple of pawns up, generally I'll get as many pieces off the board as possible. The one-minute analysis from the provided engine shows no preference for the simplification. My guess is that engines just don't fear making blunders.
   Feb-02-23 E M Jackson vs Flohr, 1929 (replies)
steinitzfan: Very deep. There's a lot going on in those few moves. Wish't I could play like that.
   Jan-31-23 Staunton - Morphy Match (1858) (replies)
steinitzfan: So how long until computers give us a set of virtual games that these players could have plausibly played at this time of their lives? Along with similar non-matches? Or am I the only person who would find such a thing interesting?
   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.
