Feb-04-12  Nemesistic: Providing Black takes the bishop after 22.Bxe5, then id try 23.Rxg7?.. 23..KxR. The 6th rank and the g file open, Blacks king looks unsafe, then 24.Qf6+ blacks King is forced to g8,then 25.Rdg1+ and Black has to give up his Queen, then it looks good for White with the passed pawn....

But i can't see no mate, and im probably wrong!

Feb-04-12  rapidcitychess: Yet another Bxd5 man, but I was definitely more floppy than most of the good solvers. I thought I could just push e6 and black would be nice and let me just push my pawn up.

I really must criticize my laziness. I gave up way too early. >.<

Feb-04-12  Jason Frost: Saw the line quickly, but gave up thinking white was just down a piece. Lot to look at after the queen comes off, could've been a Sunday.
Feb-04-12  Mozart72: The opening stops at move 10.Bf4. After this the middlegame starts. The whole opening is:

1. d4 f5
2. g3 Nf6
3. Bg2 e6
4. Nf3 d5
5. 0-0 Bd6
6. c4 c6
7. Nc3 Nbd7
8. Qc2 Ne4
9. Kh1 Qf6
10. Bf4 ...

Does Opening Theory have a name for this opening?

Feb-04-12  5hrsolver: There were two choices for me 22.Bxd5 or 22.Rxd5

It took me a long time to give up 22.Rxd5 but I could not find a satisfactory continuation after 22... exd5 23.Bxd5+ Kh8 24.Rxg7 Rf8 black can develop his own attack

So settled for 22.Bxd5 as in the game continuation. I figured black's pieces are not well coordinated and white can develop a queen and pawn attack or promotion.

  FSR: It's gotta be something like 22.Rxd5!! exd5 23.Rxg7+!!! - except legal. I don't see it.

Sure. Dutch Defense, Stonewall Variation. The Dutch Defense is 1.d4 f5; 2.g3 is the main line for White; and the setup with pawns on d5, e6, and f5 is the Stonewall Variation.

White: "Does your king have a magnet?"
Black: <picks up the king>

Guess what happened next :)

This happened on a real tournament and it is the shortest game ever recorded

  Marmot PFL: <22 Bxd5!! With a sudden change of plan, white assails the hostile position like a streak of lightning> Lasker

<23 Rxg7+! This double sacrifice exhibits the superb talent of the Russian champion. He had to calculate not only the winning of the queen for three pieces, but also several moves ahead of that.> Tartakover

Feb-05-12  LIFE Master AJ: Just for the record, (I sarted to kibbitz, I remember typing, but maybe forgot to do the actual post. BTW, I seem to do this a lot.) I got the key move (22.BxP/d5!! un-masking the Rook on g1) here. However, I opted for the immediate 27.e6. (Instead of 27. f5)

Not sure if this disqualifies me as finding the solution or not ...

Feb-05-12  LIFE Master AJ: This was featured in '04.

I think I missed it that time, but got it this time around ... prolly (once more) memory is as good as (or better than) calculation.

Feb-05-12  LIFE Master AJ: <<Feb-04-12 Jason Frost: Saw the line quickly, but gave up thinking white was just down a piece. Lot to look at after the queen comes off, could've been a Sunday.>>

Astute judgement.

Feb-05-12  Nemesistic: <ajax333221> I'm guessing White "tricked" Black into touching his king, then made him move it resulting in a 3 move loss..

I think if White had somehow "cunningly tricked" me into that same mistake, then he'd be playing the next round with some kind of physical injury that'd prevent him from even moving his pieces!

Kind of funny from white's perspective, but baaaaaaaad sortsmanship.

  Penguincw: The rook and bishop sac comes with with a queen and bishop, and dangerous connect passed pawns.

I Play Against Pieces

II Play Against Pawns.

  RookFile: I think black should have castled around move 8 or 9 and retreated ...Be7 when white offered the bishop trade.
Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: This game is conclusive proof that Bogoljubov was the greatest player that ever lived. Bogo confirms this
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: White will promote or mate quickly.
Oct-12-15  The Kings Domain: Unstoppable assault by white. Once his attack got into motion, black didn't have a chance.
