Kibitzer's Corner

Jan-25-05  Cyphelium: <Swapmeet> 22.- ♕a8 is a blunder. Black probably calculated lines like 23. ♗xf6 ♗xe4 24. ♕g3 gxf6, winning a pawn. I guess he should try something like 22.- h6 instead, but of course the position is lost anyway.
Jan-25-05  erimiro1: Black was lost already but Qa8?? made the game much shorter.
Jan-25-05  greystar69: Is Qa8 really a blunder, or is there some reason it is forced to move from the defence of the knight? A solution to a puzzle is always based on strongest play.
Jan-25-05  TigerPawns: <dac1990> yep, i was also lucky enough to execute this exact combo in a blitz game on FICS once...
Jan-25-05  greystar69: Far as I can see, best continuation for black would've been 22. Bxe4 Qxe4 23. Nxe4 Bxd8 24. Nxc3 which at least leaves black a pawn up for losing the exchange.
Jan-25-05  Ed Caruthers: Did V. miss the trick a move earlier? 19.Nh6+ looks like it works. Not that 19.Rd1 gave Black any chance to avoid the combination.
Jan-25-05  ice lemon tea: <greystar69> i don't understand at all ur variation...both white bishop are not in any position to be at e4...n there is already a white pawn at e4...how come white bishop take his own piece?
Jan-25-05  lipschutz: Like Ed Caruthers, I wondered that too. But, without 19.Rd1 Bd6, Black could have answered Bxf7 with ...Be7.
Jan-25-05  JohnBoy: What <greystar> probably meant was 22...Bxe4 23.Qxe4 Nxe4 24.Bxd8 Nxc3. But a quick material reckoning says black is a rook down. Moreover, white can just play 25.bc3 Bxa3 26.Bxc7 threatening mate and another pawn.
Jan-25-05  JohnBoy: <lipschutz>: I must say that I don't see the big difference between playing the combo at move 19 vs. move 20. Either way, black is down an X and a pawn at the end, with essentially no comp. ...Be7 at the end is meaningless in such a lost position.
Jan-25-05  dafish298: sorry i dont see this as a white to play and 'win' puzzle. Qa8 is a ridiculous move that gives white a win. Why not Qe7? or Bxe4 as stated by someone else?

  kevin86: Does this one have to be a helpmate puzzler? I guess the main idea is to manoever the knight to f7. The Qa8 move is not a blunder-it is hari-kari!
Jan-25-05  klausewitz: Sorry, but correct word is hara-kiri.
Jan-25-05  Zaius: chessgames.com, I really appreciate the easy ones at the beginning of the week. Please don't let the "yawn"ers discourage you from putting them up!
Jan-25-05  brainzugzwang: To paraphrase talk-show radio callers Long-time reader, first-time kibitzer. Hi y'all. How does White force home a win after 22. ...Qe7? White can continue to press (maybe Bg6 followed by Qh3?), but I don't see a decisive edge.

  Knight13: Good puzzle.
Jan-25-05  alphee: <JustAFish: > I ended up with the solution until ♕a8 which I avoided and also investigated 20.♘h6+ gxh6 21.♗xf6 but I couldn't find anything convincing nor the mate you mention: 20. ♘h6+ gxh6 21. ♗xf6 ♕xf6 22. ♗xf7+ ♖xf7 23. ♕g4+ ♔f8 .... What did I miss?
Jan-25-05  GreenDayGuy: Without 22... Qa8?? Black may have fought for a little longer, how about 22... Qe7? It has to be better than the move played.
Jan-25-05  MatrixManNe0: <alphee> 22. Qxf6.

  patzer2: The puzzle solution 20. Nh6+! is a decisive deflection pseudo-sacrifice.
Jan-29-05  aw1988: Power to the Paw- er- the bishops.
Feb-05-05  Sanjoy: I want to play online like I used to do in KasparovChess.Com, but that site is no more. Can I do the same in some other site where there is rating & can play with GMs also?
Feb-05-05  hintza: <Sanjoy> Please see ChessGames.com Help for a good list of places to play chess online.
Feb-25-09  WhiteRook48: 23. Qxf6!!! is so decisive
Jul-07-11  wordfunph: game sidelight..

according to Vukcevich in the book "Chess Problems and Games of Dr. Milan Vukcevich", after Bisguier saw his 15th move, Bisguier leaned toward him and said, "I should resign now, but nobody in the audience would understand why!" So, they played a little longer.
