   Oct-07-12 Mokry vs Gheorghiu, 1985 (replies)
zahbaz: Can't say I got the entire continuation... But the win came easily, and I'm happy about that. 20. Nd4 exd5 21. Qh4 Beautiful mating threat. Black's dark bishop is duped in a pin. Next move is forced. 21... h5 And at this point, I couldn't find the clear win. I decided to keep the
   Jun-28-12 F Lida Garcia vs Shulman, 2003 (replies)
zahbaz: Rxe5. Returns the exchange, clears the avenue of attack, and takes the win with Qc3+. What was white's combative idea with the voluntary exchange loss 12.Rxc6? Is this something thematic? I'm not familiar with these positions.
   May-02-12 M Gurevich vs Gelfand, 2002 (replies)
zahbaz: <but obviously Gurevich saw the resulting hopeless endgame after 27.Qxe6 Qxe6 28.Rxe6 Rd1+ 29. Kh2 Be6+ 30. g3 Rd2+ 31. Kh1 Bxg3 and black remains 2 pawns up, because Bb2 is en prise.> I'm not sure about this. First off, move 29... would be Bd6+, and that changes a whole lot of
   Jan-26-12 Degraeve vs J Tomczak, 2006 (replies)
zahbaz: Did anybody post about this potential queen sac? It's fun to play through. 15... bxc4 16. Rh3 h6 17. Qxh6! gxh6 18. Rg4+ Bg5 19. Bxg5 Qxe5! 20.Bxh6+!! Qg7 21. Rxg7+ Kh8 22. Rg4! Rg8 23. Bg7# Black has to offer up his queen twice to last until move 23. White's move 22.Rg4 is kind of ...
   Oct-10-11 R Koepcke vs Sevillano, 2005
zahbaz: I'm guessing he didn't anticipate the queen to be pinned, but only trapped. If that were the case, it'd be an even material trade: three minor pieces for the queen. Instead, black leisurely gobbled up a rook while the queen lay skewered and defenseless.
   Mar-10-11 Chiburdanidze vs J Lebel-Arias, 1986
zahbaz: What's with move 15...? Nc2 looks winning.
   Feb-23-11 H Kongshavn vs P Trifunovic, 1950
zahbaz: I wonder if Kongshavn forgot he pocketed his king in the corner. This loss looks based on hindsight. Was there any meaning to 20.Kh1? Looks like it wasted time to me.
   Feb-23-11 K Salbu vs K Ozols, 1936 (replies)
zahbaz: I think 33...Ra2+ was omitted for a reason: cool points.
   Feb-19-11 T Luther vs M Thinius, 2004 (replies)
zahbaz: <Sastre> Continuing on your line... 34...Nxh3+ 35.Bxh3 Bxh3 36.g4 h5 37.f3 hxg4 38.fxg4 Na6 39.Kh2 Bxg4 40.Nxg4 Nxb4 41.Ne3 41...Nxd5 would thereby force a draw. White's got nothing with only two knights.
   Aug-19-08 G Prakken vs O Shelajev, 2001 (replies)
zahbaz: What an incredible forcing combination.... completely demolishes black's pawn structure.
