|Oct-10-05|| ||Averageguy: I missed it! I thought of 36.Bg8+ Qe7 37.Re6, winning the queen.|
|Oct-10-05|| ||AlexanderMorphy: Yeah i think i got this one...although i was thinking of another line....Moro was lucky to escape yesterday, we'll see how he does today(he'll surely be eyeing that second place if you ask me)!|
|Oct-10-05|| ||Poisonpawns: The puzzle:Way To Easy :-)Nevertheless to get that position against a strong GM in the first place is another matter!!|
|Oct-10-05|| ||pawntificator: Samuel, I think 36 Bc8+ Qe7 37. Re6 wins easily enough. Both 37....Qxe6 38 Qxe6 and 37...Rxc8 38. Rxe7 Kd8 39. Qe6 quickly lead to mate.|
|Oct-10-05|| ||pawntificator: By the way, Moro played a crazy opening here! It seems so quiet with d3, but then out comes the queen galavanting all over the land! Very sharp.|
|Oct-10-05|| ||Halldor: A double check solves the problem, 36.Bf7++ leads to an easy mate.|
|Oct-10-05|| ||EmperorAtahualpa: <bugeyes> GOTD = Game Of The Day|
A nice puzzle and quite good for Mondays, I've seen them much easier.
|Oct-10-05|| ||IMlday: <pawntificator> I agree the opening is the fascinating part. Black's position quickly sucks. Hence he ends up on a CG daily puzzle! How did it go so wrong so fast? Maybe 4..b6 is an overplay? After 10.♕/e2-e4-g4 White was well on top.|
|Oct-10-05|| ||lipschutz: Elegant puzzle: White drags the Black King out to the 7th rank to prevent intercepting moves by the Queen or Rook.|
|Oct-10-05|| ||dakgootje: well can't say that was too hard was it, but im slighty getting the feeling that monday-puzzle are getting harder...but well as i did get in a few seconds im afraid i cant say they are too hard|
|Oct-10-05|| ||mdz: the puzzle should really begin on move 34, not 37 -> would be a lot more interesting and pretty.|
|Oct-10-05|| ||dakgootje: Well then it wouldnt be a monday puzzle and i think there would be too many continuations to calculate all of them, besides that im not sure whether Smbat G Lputian played the best variation so if there is a better variation you wouldnt have the 'right' continuation if you were right..|
|Oct-10-05|| ||IMlday: <mdz>
True, the finale was blunt. But getting there..whew! Smbat is really pointy. Moro played great!
|Oct-10-05|| ||Granite: <Fezzik: I don't quite see how Qg6+ wins so easily.|
36.Qg6+ Ke7! 37.Rd7+ Qd7 38.Bd7 Kd7 and Black is very much alive.>
If instead of 37. Rd7+? perhaps I could tempt you to consider 37. Qe6# which I believe is somewhat stronger. :)
|Oct-10-05|| ||Marvol: At moves 24/25, does anyone see if white has anything better than the repetition?|
In the end, black avoids it with what I think is a disastrous move (25...Qb8), anybody trying that should be, well, beaten as happened in the game. Good gracious me, abysmal.
I looked at the Q-sac for white, getting two pieces and a rook for the queen is not such a bad deal but I guess black's position is in tatters so white could combine mating threats with attacks against pawns and pieces to rapid get back material.
Am I right?
|Oct-10-05|| ||aw1988: Yes, I suspect a repetition is dead even...|
|Oct-10-05|| ||nfazli: <Granite>37 qe6 is impossible|
|Oct-10-05|| ||filipecea: <This game should be called Moro's dance! Wonderful game> Really great. Like Short had stated morozevich is the iconoclast of our times! 1.e4 e6 2.d3?!! Also interesting is 6.Nc4 and I liked the way he exploited the pinned c-pawn with 21 & 24.Nd5! A real delight in times of early GMs draws..|
|Oct-10-05|| ||Fezzik: Granite,
You could tempt me if you could tell me how to vaporize your own Bishop on e6! :)
|Oct-10-05|| ||YouRang: Got it. I had found another 'solution' that won the black queen, but I looked harder (suspecting that mate was possible) and found the double-check, 37 Bf7+, which forces the king to the 7th rank. There, no black piece can interpose to prevent mate from the white queen+rook. Good puzzle, a litter harder than usual for Monday, I think.|
|Oct-10-05|| ||kevin86: Not a good week for me! I missed the obvious mate following the text move! I tried Bf5+ but that isn't the best.|
Someone mentioned "intercepting the check-I think the more accurate word is "interposing",although the former is more colorful.
|Oct-10-05|| ||sfm: Terrific game! Black seems justified to play for a win with 25.-,Qb8, however it turns out that white has resources. 32.Qd4!! is really fine. Not simply 32.Qxe4, oh no, the black rook has to be forced to another (seemingly better) field first as we have a neat sac on h7 prepared...|
|Oct-10-05|| ||fgh: Too easy, as every monday.|
|Feb-25-12|| ||wordfunph: "After 20...f4 Ι could have just resigned! If Ι went 19.Bg7 Rg8
20.Bd4 Lputian could play this tremendous move 20...Kf8!!"|
- GM Alexander Morozevich
|Nov-04-13|| ||The Last Straw: Black could have played 29...♕c7 or even 30...♕c7 to maintain his advantage.|
