|Nov-25-06|| ||Fisheremon: <chesslearning: How about 39. f6?> seemed to be good, but just leading to a draw (39...Kg5 forces Rook exchange, so White wins a pawn, but with opposite bishops).|
|Nov-25-06|| ||tatarch: this is the kind of position that kills me in blitz games- i would probably play 39. fxg6 and get mated on the next move, then the d-bag across from me on yahoo would talk trash like he planned it all along and leave the table so i wouldn't get a rematch, and then my day would be ruined...|
but, still a good puzzle
|Nov-25-06|| ||kevin86: I get an F- on this one! My move was 39 fxg6??? pure suicide!|
A pun for this one:march of the pawn-guins.
|Nov-25-06|| ||al wazir: <PP>: If 47...Bf6 then 48. Rf7, threatening 49. a7 and Rxf6.|
<Nostrils>: I can't find a win for white after 39. h3+ Kg5 40. h4+ Kf6. If 41. fxg6 then 41...Kxg6. If 41. Be6 then 41...Re7.
<chesslearning>: 39. f6 Kg5 40. Bxf7 Kxf6 41. Bxg7 wins a . But does it win the game? I'm not sure.
|Nov-25-06|| ||Brown: <dakgootje: actually got the first move, but TOTALLY missed blacks mating possibility. so, even though i got the move, im very far from solving it>|
|Nov-25-06|| ||mr j: i was a billion miles away from seeing this move... absolutly genius!|
|Nov-25-06|| ||Olympos: The only move, otherwise White is mated (!!) in one move, eg 39. (any other move than Be6) gxf5 mate. If 39. fxg6 then 39. ... f7-f5 mate!! A rather easy puzzle.|
|Nov-25-06|| ||balokrop: Chesslearning! 39.f6 seems to be a draw line. 39.f6 Kg5 (only move!) 40.Bxf7 Kxf6 41.Bxg6 Rxh7 42.Bxh7...|
|Nov-25-06|| ||dzechiel: Found the right key move, but for the wrong reason!|
|Nov-25-06|| ||charms: I got it, but this game is shown in one of Dvoretskis wonderful endgame books. He strikes out how Reti skillfully employs the principle of strengthening the position to the utmost before aking action: the "useless" move 31. a4! finally makes the difference. Of course, 39. fxg6? would have been bitter.|
|Nov-25-06|| ||bleedingpack: After seeing that Black was threatening mate, I found Be6 rather easily. But I didn't think it was the solution because the only line I looked at was 39.Be6 fxe6 40.Rxd7 gxf5++. I eventually settled on 39.Rxf7 gxf5+ 40.Rxf5 Rxd5 41.Kxd5 Kxf5 42. Kxc5 and White has three pawns for the bishop which initially looked like a winning endgame to me. But after 42...e4! it appears drawn. If 43.d4?? then Bxd4! 44.exd4 e3 and Black wins. No credit for me today. :(|
|Nov-25-06|| ||beatles fan: Found this pretty easy.
starting to be able to solve all saturdays
|Nov-25-06|| ||Fisheremon: <arielbekarov:...39.Be6! The only move to win...><vinchess><NBZ> Indeed 39. Rg7 also wins, but 39. Be6 much nicer as R. Reti's an endgame maestro.|
|Nov-29-06|| ||think: My original thought was 39. d4, but this loses:
39. d4? gxf5+ 40. Kxe5 f6+! winning the rook, or 40. Kd3 Rxd5.
It looks like 39. f6 wins, though.
|Jul-16-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Study-like ending from GM Reti here.
|Jul-16-12|| ||Djoker: What happens if Black cpatures a pawn enpassant on 31st move?|
|Jul-16-12|| ||King Sacrificer: <Djoker: What happens if Black cpatures a pawn enpassant on 31st move?>|
White gets the Bishop for free. Black can't protect his a-pawn after the capture.
|Jul-16-12|| ||El Trueno: he loses his bishop on the next move|
|Jul-16-12|| ||newzild: Another pun might be "A Kick in the Arsenievich".|
|Jul-16-12|| ||HeMateMe: It looked drawish at first. White seemed to have a threat of a winning pawn roller on the kingside, so black had to give up a pawn to try and get counterplay. He got reamed.|
|Jul-16-12|| ||sorokahdeen: God, that was an annoying philosophical argument!
Reti worked so hard to do the hypermodern thing in the opening it was silly. Basically, his game was like the black side of a maroczy bind sicillian using the (now) well-worn f5 break to gain space, crowding white's light-squared bishop while working to give the his own light-squared bishop an outpost on the d5 square and putting pressure on the e5 pawn which black had not shorn up with a pawn on f6.
You look at this game and think: "wonder what might have happened if black had found a more aggressive continuation to his attacking moves" and, "if Rheti was so anxious to counterpunch with the black pieces, he could have just waited a round."
|Jul-16-12|| ||psmith: <sorokahdeen> My that was an annoying rant! You look at this comment and think, "wonder how many moves <sorokahdeen> would last against Reti? And how hard is it to spell Reti anyway?"|
But seriously, doesn't context matter? What is now well-worn was new then. Reti wasn't copying someone else, he was coming up with something original. Sheesh.
|Jul-16-12|| ||kevin86: White had to watch his step,there was even a checkmate trap in the works.|
Black can stop one pawn and two,but the third clinches it:
MARCH OF THE PAWNGuins
|Jul-16-12|| ||The17thPawn: Reti does seem to go into gyrations in this game that leave me wondering as well but one thing comes through to me in many of his efforts. He always seems to be at his best when his advesary seems to have him stymied. There is a memorable game against Bogojubov when Reti finds resource after resource just when it seems Bogo must defend but he never quite does.|
|Jul-16-12|| ||thegoodanarchist: simply splendid endgame!!|
