Nov-27-17  stst: Mondy Q-sac:
if 37.bxQ RxP#
if 37.Kb1 Qa1#
Nov-27-17  saturn2: 36..Qxa4 mate in both cases.
Nov-27-17  SpamIAm: Love the material imbalance- rook and four pawns vs. 3 minor pieces. Minor pieces will usually win unless one of those pawns is close to queening.
Nov-27-17  AlicesKnight: As <saturn2> says - there's mate with ....Qa1 or ....Rxb2.

  Once: Very impressed with black's play here. He calmly brings his pieces near the enemy king and makes threat after threat. Sooner or later he is going to make a threat that white can't defend against.
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfessor: The old saying I learned is, Three pieces is a mate. Four is too many, and five - well, you better start by giving something away.

  It takes two: Outstanding play by black. White canít defend against the queen sac made by black 36...Qxa4+ forcing mate in two.
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <36...Qxa4+> is like a tin opener.
Premium Chessgames Member
  varishnakov: Nice to see such a game from the Philidor. I love that opening, for some reason.

  kevin86: Queen sac and ROOK mate!
Premium Chessgames Member
  ChessCoachClark: I appreciate the way the Vukovic Mate is brought down against Hector in a sideways orientation and that two Bishops were needed as helpers.

Added this game to my collection of Vukovic Mates today, as well. Students will love this actual game example!

Nov-27-17  eblunt: Rxb3 mate in 3, maybe 5 if you a couple for spite checks
Nov-27-17  BOSTER: <rilkefan> :< Where did White go wrong?>. 17.Bc4 is good enough to continue to play the game.So mistake was Qg6.
Nov-27-17  Cheapo by the Dozen: Queen's Rook file, for variety from the usual Monday pattern.
Nov-27-17  Nullifidian: 36... ♕xa4+

37. ♔b1 ♕a1#
37. ♙bxa4 ♖xb2#

Nov-27-17  jffun1958: The mate pattern is analogous to D Byrne vs Fischer, 1956 aka "The Game of the Century" :-)
Premium Chessgames Member
  Marmot PFL: If you can give up the queen with check you can solve most Monday puzzles.
Nov-27-17  zb2cr: Straightforward. 36. ... Qxa4+ sets up mate on the next move, no matter which of 2 alternatives White chooses.

If 37. bxa4, Rxb2#.

If 37. Kb1, Qa1#.
