   May-17-14 R Douven vs Van der Wiel, 1989 (replies)
tallinn: I guess the real difficulty of Nxe6 is the aftermath. Fritz defends as black with Bxg2+ Kxg2 fxe6 Qxe6+ Kh8 Rxc8 Qb7+ Kf2 Rxc8 exd6 and the exposed position of the white king gives black counterplay with lots of difficulties for white to defend. It doesn't matter that Fritz ...

tallinn: I am in the group of those that thought after Qxh4 White has nothing gained... Oh well. I would have won that game without knowing why :) "Woot? He resigned? Lucky me."
   Nov-21-13 Anand vs Carlsen, 2013 (replies)
tallinn: <Fangues Fair> After 33 e6 Black can give back his material advantage: Nxf6 kills the cat, the result is probably a draw. e.g Nxf6 gxf Qxf6 e7 (better than opening the f-file for Black) Qxe7 Rxe5 and material is balanced, position as well.
   Nov-13-13 Anand vs Carlsen, 2013 (replies)
tallinn: just a probably bad idea but is vishy planning to sac the knight on d6 to get a free pawn there?
   Apr-01-13 Carlsen vs Svidler, 2013 (replies)
tallinn: I support Ulhumbrus b4 for the moment. Either exchange for c5 or getting an advanced pawn on b5.
   Nov-27-12 P Soderberg vs Taimanov, 1998 (replies)
tallinn: Once you see that Qe1 would be mate if not the white queen protect that field finding the combination is easy as you have spotted the deadly diagonal. Does Kg3 deserve two question marks or is the game lost already for white even with a different king move on 57....?
   Oct-29-12 L Christiansen vs Blatny, 1996 (replies)
tallinn: This one was harder than expected, as I first selected Rxh3, visualizing the Qg1# mate, noticed the white queen then and started to look around for something different then Rxh3 until I noticed that there was another, working mate in it. I imagine to have this position on the 40th ...
   Aug-11-12 Lutikov vs L Aronson, 1957 (replies)
tallinn: As I am enjoying Once's posts to the problems given here, I do not get it why he is criticized for not giving analysis. Would that add to the fun provided by his texts? Not at all. Once, are you writing for a newspaper column? If not, think about it.
   Oct-10-11 Carlsen vs Ivanchuk, 2011 (replies)
tallinn: (After 11. 0-0) Common is to have the white bishop on g2 in this position. Bh3 looks awkward to me. What is the bishop doing there?
   Mar-02-11 Hjartarson vs Van der Wiel, 1984 (replies)
tallinn: Fail. So my solution to this one was Rxb6 Nxb6 Qa6+ Ka8 (Kb8 Rc8+ and mate) Rc8+ and as Nxc8 is met with Qc6+ Kb8 Qxc8# Black has to give the queen with Qb8. I take comfort in the fact that even my very sub-optimal play would have won that position. For some obscure reason while ...
