   Jul-21-11 C H Maderna vs R Shocron, 1953 (replies)
totalnewbie: Nf5 just screams "ooh ooh pick me pick me" here. Who doesn't like threatening a mate-in-1? Surely that must be good for something, but obviously the queen is under attack, so how can we make Nf5 happen without losing the game? Rxc4! etc.

totalnewbie: <Phony Benoni> <40.Qg5 Rg8 41.Nf6 Qa2> 42. Qh6 threatens Qxh7# but Bxh6 is met by Rxh7#
   May-12-10 A Bannik vs Y Nikolaevsky, 1958 (replies)
totalnewbie: I think if Bd4 then black can probably hold with Bd2
   Jul-16-09 Kasparov vs Smirin, 1988 (replies)
totalnewbie: <42.Qf7+ Bg7 43.Bf5+ Kh6 44.Qh5+ Kg8 45.Be6+ Kf8 46.Qf7# > A horse, a horse, my kingdom for a horse! It should be 43. Bf5+ Kh8 I originally looked at Rxh6 but also dismissed it because I missed the mate. Qc5+ is pretty sneaky.

totalnewbie: If 27. ... Bd7 wouldn't 28. Rxd7 be more forcing than Qxd7?
   Dec-24-08 Kosten vs Chandler, 1991 (replies)
totalnewbie: I think Qh2+ first move order is slightly more forcing than Rxf7 first but they're both winning, either way.
   Dec-16-08 R Kempinski vs H Tirard, 1996 (replies)
totalnewbie: 28. ... Rxb3
   Jun-20-08 B Ivanovic vs Velimirovic, 1981 (replies)
totalnewbie: I think after Qxf6 black replies Rxd4
   Jun-16-08 Sasikiran vs D Rombaldoni, 2006 (replies)
totalnewbie: Knight on g5 is a dead giveaway that there's play to be had involving back rank mates and, indeed, the e8 rook is overworked, trying to protect both the e4 rook and the back rank. Qxe4 neatly exposes this weakness, 1-0.

totalnewbie: <LazyNinja> Knowing Juett, it's a good thing no attempt was made to keep the extra pawn, as that would spell disaster, without a doubt. Although if white had simply given up an extra pawn, that would probably result in a won endgame. That silly Juett... Juett mentioned ...
