whittaker: Crafty also likes 32 ... Qd6, saying White then has nothing better than giving up the g3 Knight with 33. h3 Rxg3 34. Re1 Rg8 -2.28 After the game move 32. ... Ba6, Crafty says White keeps a slight edge with 33. Nge2 Qe8 34. Qe1 Qh5 35. Rh3 Qg4 36. Rg3 Qh5 37. h3 Rxf5 38. Ng1 Re5 ...

whittaker: Great puzzle, though certainly not easy. I looked at 30 ... Qh6 31. gxf4 but missed the strong follow-up 31 ... Rd2! Amazingly, "crafty" also missed it, assuming Black would recapture with 31 ... exf4 when the evaluation is roughly -0.9. Only when I forced it to play 31 ... Rd2 ...

whittaker: 24 ... g6 25 Qf7 allows 25 ... Qe3+ winning the Knight. But instead 25 Nf7+ Kg7 26. Qf6 is mate.
   Sep-29-22 J Augustin vs Suba, 1977
whittaker: At move 46, I wanted to just grab the knight with 46. Bxb8, and it seems that's good enough to win. But crafty finds 46 Nf5! with mate in 10: 46. Nf5 Nc2 47. Nxh6+ Kf8 48. Qb7 Ne3+ 49. Kh2 Nxg4+ 50. Nxg4 Kg8 51. Nh6+ Kh8 52. Qxb8+ Kh7 53. Qg8+ Kxh6 54. Bf4+ Kh5 55. Qg5#

whittaker: <PawnSac> I object, and I also went with ...Rxh2.
   Jun-07-22 Fischer vs J Warren, 1964
whittaker: <Gottschalk> <67...Ke3 wins too.> Not according to the tablebase at Do you mean ...Ke3 at some other point?

whittaker: Great minds think alike, Brenin. We posted the same variations at the same time.

whittaker: This is game #731 in Chernev's 1000 Best Short Games of Chess.
   Apr-27-22 P Papp vs M Lomineishvili, 2010 (replies)
whittaker: Crafty says 14...Bc5 was the losing move, preferring 14... Bc6 when White is only ahead by +0.48. It also looks at 12...Rxc3, again giving White only a slight plus, before concluding that the game move 12...Bc6 is marginally better.

whittaker: I stared at this position for about 10 minutes. 39. Qc8+ Kh7, yeah so what. I looked at 39 d5, 39 Rc5, 39 Rxe6, they didn't seem to do anything. Then I looked at the diagonal line-up of the Black R and Q with the loose Black Q. I thought, if it was legal to play 39. Qa6, I could ...
