|Jan-26-07|| ||Milo: Why would anyone cheat on the daily puzzle? I mean, if someone wanted to do that sort of thing, they could just post "I got it" after every puzzle and not even worry about using a computer to find the solution.|
|Jan-26-07|| ||gchristopher: I only got the first move. I though that white would play 54. Ne1, and after losing the g-pawn he could move in to block with rook and king. It was lost also, but it gave longer (not really stronger) defense.|
|Jan-26-07|| ||eblunt: Got the first 4 moves for once. It's beautiful the way the white pieces are tied up in knots, with Bishop stuck on f1 , protecting the pawn which is pinned to the Rook, which in turn is glued to h1.|
|Jan-26-07|| ||Manequinho: I thought a line like:
54. Nxg5 Bxg2
55. Rf1 Rh2
56. Ke1 Rh1
57. Rxh1 Bxh1
58. Kf1 Bf3
59. Kg1 g2
But I don't think its winning...
|Jan-26-07|| ||dakgootje: Didn't know what to do after 56. Bf1|
|Jan-26-07|| ||keypusher: Sheesh, who cares if <chessmoron> or anyone else uses a computer or not?|
|Jan-26-07|| ||MiCrooks: More importantly, who the heck CARES is someone "cheats" on the puzzle. The whole "I solved it 2.73 seconds" line of posting is rediculus in the first place. Just skip over them :) and move on with your life!|
I often will use Fritz or Crafty to check on a line when I come up with what I think is an alternative solution. Quite often I am right, but occassionally I miss a defensive move that the computer will illustrate for me.
I rarely post on here, as it seems rather pointless, but I do often browse the posts to see if others found similar alternative solutions. Hopefully this thread on Chessmoron will be short lived :(
|Jan-26-07|| ||Billy Ray Valentine: I got this one quickly. I thought this was easier than Wednesday's puzzle. I also thought yesterday's puzzle was easier than Wednesday's puzzle. Still, it was a nice puzzle, with the black king making a march to decide the game...|
|Jan-26-07|| ||chessmoron: <keypusher: Sheesh, who cares if <chessmoron> or anyone else uses a computer or not?> I care because it's like someone smack across my face and disrespecting me.|
|Jan-26-07|| ||laskereshevsky: HELLO FOLK
my " chess sixth sense" allow me to say almost immediatly
53...Rh2. 54 Nxh2 gxh. 55. Rh1 Be5.
56. Bf1.....at this point i stopped to analyse cause that looks me a little "boring"....
at the moment im "dreaming" ab.
54...Bxg2 !? or ?! or ?.....what you think?!....
|Jan-26-07|| ||keypusher: <chessmoron> Oh, I don't blame you for caring if you are accused of using a computer. I just can't believe anyone else cares enough to make the accusation.|
|Jan-26-07|| ||kevin86: I answered this one. Blacked sac-ed the rook to imprison both of black's pieces and allow the king to march in to pick up his maximum.|
In the fullness of time,the one set of bishops will be exchanged and the pawn will win white's rook. Black will be left a bishop ahead and the game will be on smooth ice.
|Jan-26-07|| ||ianD: Got it including the king march.
Having a good week
Friday usually too much for me.
|Jan-26-07|| ||Slink: these puzzles are supposed to be fun and educational, and it's up to each to use them this way. though i can say that the nerdy, self-congratulatory style that often pops up in the kibitzing ('this was easy for a saturday' etc.) makes me chuckle sometimes ;-)|
|Jan-26-07|| ||ClassZPlaya: laskereshevsky: I looked at 54. ... Bxg2 but it didn't look effective. For example: after simply 55. Nf3 how does Black continue? 55. ... Bh3 56 Rg1 or 55. ... Bxf1 56. Bxf1. In either case, Black is down material and the g-pawn won't Queen. I found the winning line in the game with 56 ... Be4 and of course it's just crushing.|
|Jan-26-07|| ||Themofro: I got it, great move to herald the end of a great gameby Tartakower. There have been a lot of Tartakower puzzles lately, which is great.|
|Jan-26-07|| ||Stellar King: great move .... it is easy...if you think|
|Jan-26-07|| ||dzechiel: Found ...Rh2 instantly, it was the only move I considered, and I was sure it was correct in less than 30 seconds.|
|Jan-26-07|| ||YouRang: I missed it. In review, I agree with <gchristopher> that 54. Ne1 would have been much better for white than taking the rook. |

Black is better, but I don't think the win is at all obvious. White can move the rook out and put the king on f1 to guard the pawn, and it might even be a draw.
|Jan-26-07|| ||aazqua: Nice and really pretty easy. once you see that the rook will be trapped in the corner and the bishop tied to f1 there's not much doubt as to the outcome.|
|Jan-26-07|| ||ALEXIN: Very interesting example of how to fix a piece. Or better in that case 3 pieces (rook, bishop and after the own king). White could't play and better resigned.|
|Jan-26-07|| ||patrikey: <laskereshevsky> Unfortunately, after 53...Rh2 54.Nxh2 Bxg2? 55.Nf3 white is winning|
|Jan-27-07|| ||laskereshevsky: HELLO
YES you are right......in fact i was just "<dreaming>" about Bxg2......dsnt work....
|Oct-02-08|| ||vikinx: Note that at the final position, every piece except the b-pawn returned to its original position.|
