   Apr-22-22 Harikrishna vs Nisipeanu, 2004 (replies)
woodenplayer: And yet, after the obvious 31. Qxb2 it appears, according to Stockfish, that White can do no better than a perpetual.
   Dec-10-21 Tarrasch vs Alapin, 1892 (replies)
woodenplayer: Truly a fabulous, inspired pun, but deeply ironic that it required a string of mediocre, repetitive GotD puns as a set up.
   Nov-08-21 T Fruebing vs L Espig, 1994 (replies)
woodenplayer: <Brenin> If 38. Red2 (whatever notation) then 38...Qh4+ and now what? 38. g3 looks like disaster. 39. Ke2 Rg1 40. Kd3 Qh1 41. Qe2 Rd8+ and something has to give for White.
   Oct-28-21 Lputian vs Dlugy, 1998 (replies)
woodenplayer: <FSR> Black would need to calculate like a machine and have nerves of steel to see he could survive after 17...Rd8!! White has so many fearsome looking moves, and one of less threatening-looking ones (18. Bb3) gives him a playable game, according to the engine.
   Sep-13-21 Polgar vs Anand, 1992 (replies)
woodenplayer: There was a young lady from Pest Who wanted to play all the best; She did pretty well, From what I can tell, And now's taking a much deserved rest.
   Sep-08-21 B Lalic vs E Kengis, 1997 (replies)
woodenplayer: Guess I'm still just a wood pusher. I would never have played 15...g5 -- it looks like just opening Black's kingside to let the wolf in. But the engine agrees this is the best move. However, the engine deviates from the game with 18...Ng6, subsequently moving Qg6 after a trade ...
   Aug-27-21 A Macht vs Alekhine, 1930 (replies)
woodenplayer: <goodevans> If 36...e3 then, as you say, White must give up the Bishop but can prevent the pawn from queening. Probably a win for Black but less clear than the game line where the pawn will promote.
   Jul-12-21 B Adhiban vs Aronian, 2021 (replies)
woodenplayer: eh, to answer my own wondering, not against Stockfish and likely not against Aronian either.
   Jun-23-21 Vidmar vs D Przepiorka, 1906 (replies)
woodenplayer: As others pointed out years earlier, 35. ... Rxe6 wins for Black. However, instead of 35. Qxe4 White should have played 35. Qh5 after which the only way for Black to prevent immediate mate is 35. ... Qxg6 36. Qxg6 Rge8 and after 37. Qxe4 Rxe6 38. Qc2 Rxe3 it appears that White ...
   Feb-11-21 J Curdo vs R Byrne, 1994 (replies)
woodenplayer: <al wazir> after 17. ...Qxa2 18. b3 O-O 19. Qc3 then either c4 or g4 or both and checks by Black's black-squared Bishop will thwart White's threatened mate on the long diagonal, leaving Black a piece up and White with a precarious king.
