I really don't like the 2nd puzzle. I could've mated the guy in 2 moves from there and the rest just drew it out.
@PeaceRequiresAnarchy (first poster) I don't get the puzzle you posted.... didn't look like checkmate??
I also saw a way for white to checkmate his opponent quite early in the game...... I'm confused about it.
Cool daily puzzle though, as usual :)
I'm falling asleep here.
[Moderated: Political Content]A great win by Carlsen against Anand at Bilbao Masters 2012:
Judit Polgar reviewed that game in one of her video lessons. She recommended 18. 0-0-0# more amazing I personally think
The Lasker - Thomas game? How is 18. O-O-O# any more amazing than 18. Kd2#? They're both moving the king out of the way of the rook to deliver mate on the 1st rank.
my head was hurting, but the second example was beautiful. Excellent chuzzle!
