Feb-27-16  gabriel112000: Another one of those unknown brilliancies.

  Phony Benoni: 29.Qg7+ Rxg7 30.fxg7+ Kg8 31.Rxf8+ Qxf8 32.gxf8R#

With variations according to your artistic sensibilities.

  landshark: 29.Qg7+ does the trick.
As usual, a lot tougher (and more interesting) than Mondays of yore -
Apr-29-19  stacase: Queen sac Monday - everything's right with the world (-:
Apr-29-19  areknames: 29.Qg7+ and mate quickly follows. Playing through the game one notices how Adorjan really puts his pawns to work in the middlegame - between moves 16 and 24, 7 are pawn moves - before the heavy artillery finishes the job.

  agb2002: White has a bishop for both knights.

Black's weak back rank allows a mate in four: 29.Qg7+ Rxg7 30.fxg7+ Kg8 31.Rxf8+ and mate next.

Apr-29-19  Olsonist: The ending is kind of like the Grenke R8 Svidler Carlsen game:

29.Qg7+ Rxg7 30. Bxg7+ Kg8 31. f7 mate

Premium Chessgames Member
  Phony Benoni: <Olsonist:> Not quite. Black has 31...Kxg7.
Apr-29-19  stst: Monday Q-sac:
29.Qg7+ (not Qg8) RxQ
30.fxR+ Kg8
31.RxN+ QxR
Apr-29-19  Walter Glattke: Oh, black is a piece ahead, and then queen sac more.
Apr-29-19  groog: A little harder for a Monday puzzle, quite enjoyable.
Apr-29-19  Shadout Mapes: I actually used a different mate, but it's in the same number of moves: 29.Bg7+ Kg8 30. Bxh7+ Kxh7 31. Qh6+ Kg8 32. Qh8#

I guess I saw how nice the pawn on f6 is for keeping black's queen out of the game, so I hit upon this line by seeking combinations where it stays put.

Apr-29-19  Cybe: 26... Ne6?? 26... Be6 leeds to perpetual draw by White.
Apr-29-19  areknames: <Shadout Mapes> After 30.Bxh7+ Black has 30..Nxh7.
Apr-29-19  saturn2: I saw 29. Qg7+ Rxg7 30. fxg7+ Kg8 31. Rxf8+ (or gxf8=Q+ Qxf8 32. Rxf8#) Qxf8 32. gxf8=Q#

  malt: Nice Monday Q-sac

29.Qg7+ R:g7 30.fg7+ Kg8 31.gf8/Q+ Q:f8

  Willber G: <Shadout Mapes: I actually used a different mate, but it's in the same number of moves: 29.Bg7+ Kg8 30. Bxh7+ Kxh7 31. Qh6+ Kg8 32. Qh8#>

You missed 30...Nxh7 which stops the attack.

Apr-29-19  SpamIAm: I would underpromote to a rook on move 31 or 32. Just because I could.
Apr-29-19  zb2cr: 29. Qg7+ starts a cascade that leads to mate. 29. ... Rxg7 is forced, after White White has 30. fxg7+, Kg8; 31. gxf8(Q)+, Qxf8; 32. Rxf8#.
Apr-29-19  alexrawlings: For some reason my brain couldn't visualise the position through to mate... I knew it had to be <29 Qg7+> as it's a monday puzzle and looking at the position nothing else made sense to me. Having looked at it after posting I hadn't taken in to account the bishop on h6 was also pointing to the queening square on f8, together with the pawn on g7 and the rook on f1 so I kept thinking the combination didn't work as white didn't have sufficient control of f8. I'm going to be kind to myself and put this down to a long weekend and a lack of sleep!

  landshark: <alexrawlings> Tackling puzzles at the wrong time (like right before bed) can trip me up too. The difference between <before coffee> and <after coffee> is probably around 350 rating points -

  Messiah: It seems the moderation is suboptimal, to say this way.
Apr-29-19  Walter Glattke: A second way was 29.Bg7+ Kg8 30.Qh6, now, find a good move for black (30.-d3? 31.Bxf8 Qxf8 32.Qh7#), slaughtering Festival with 30.-Rxf6 31.Rxf6 Be6!? 32.Bxf8! and Qh7#. I always overlook anything, find it! (30.-Qd7 31.Bf8 Rxf8 32.Bd5+ Rf7/Qf7 33.Qg7#)
Premium Chessgames Member
  Willber G: <Walter Glattke: A second way was 29.Bg7+ Kg8 30.Qh6, now, find a good move for black (30.-d3? 31.Bxf8 Qxf8 32.Qxh7#)>

32.Qxh7 is not mate, there is 32...Rxh7.

Apr-29-19  olinart: Walter, I started looking at Bg7+ too. It fails on 30 ..Be6 so that31. BxF8 is answered by R(a8)xB.
