|Dec-11-06|| ||chessmoron: Yes!!! Got it. Black loses g4 to White .|
|Dec-11-06|| ||capa5: Double attack. Too easy.|
|Dec-11-06|| ||NakoSonorense: I didn't solve this one! Ok, I'm just going to say that I'm under a lot of pressure... :S|
|Dec-11-06|| ||lentil: so simple i almost missed it. then i remembered 'LPDO', and bingo!|
|Dec-11-06|| ||cu8sfan: It took me some time to find this. Going through many tactics in books and online I found out that a double attack by the queen is the hardest tactic for me to find. I don't know why this is so.|
|Dec-11-06|| ||gruntrush: i got this one too but it took me a little longer then it normally does on monday. hey lentil what's lpdo?|
|Dec-11-06|| ||Canuck16: <lentil> LPDO ?|
|Dec-11-06|| ||VinnyRoo2002: Maybe your board vision is lacking cu8sfan. Your chess will improve immensely when you see the whole board as homogenous, although many tactics do exist in simply recognizing a pattern on one side of the board, such as kingside attacks against a castled king.|
|Dec-11-06|| ||chessmoron: LPDO-"Loose Pieces Drop Off"|
|Dec-11-06|| ||dzechiel: I saw 21 Qe4 right away, noticing the fork of the knight and the rook, however I thought there must me something more in the position, as that leaves white with two pieces and a pawn for the rook (a good material advantage), but black can fight on. Finally I decided that I couldn't find anything better so checked the solution.|
|Dec-11-06|| ||suenteus po 147: LPDO = Loose Pieces Drop Off|
|Dec-11-06|| ||chessmoron: <suenteus po 147> Not to be rude to a college professor...but TOO SLOW!!! =D|
|Dec-11-06|| ||vagrantlike: Got it too !!Thought it a little simple .I won't let go of this kind of tactic in games.I am not good at complex king-pawn ending and positional play though.|
|Dec-11-06|| ||cu8sfan: LPDO - I think it was John Nunn who coined this phrase.|
|Dec-11-06|| ||vagrantlike: I mean king -pawn end game lol:)|
|Dec-11-06|| ||HelaNubo: Bronstein Memorial this week?|
|Dec-11-06|| ||taufiksville: I think Qe4 is the solution to this puzzle. It's a fork that leaves black in stunning. White will catch the rook or knight and white is clearly in better position and material then after. Tartakower said 'It is always better to sacrifice your opponents men'|
|Dec-11-06|| ||al wazir: <dzechiel: I saw 21 Qe4 right away... however I thought there must be something more in the position, as that leaves white with two pieces and a pawn for the rook.>|
My thinking too. Why did black resign? Or is the score truncated?
|Dec-11-06|| ||sataranj: this habit of looking at the king side attack is getting me too. miss these tactics that are purely ingenuous.|
|Dec-11-06|| ||HLecter: Got it immediately. Then it must be too easy.|
|Dec-11-06|| ||cjhasbrouck: Hardest Monday ever?
Took me like 5 minutes to find this.
I kept looking at Knight and Pawn moves.
|Dec-11-06|| ||thorndeux: <al wazir><dzechiel>|
Players of our league (so to speak) should maybe play on here as Black, but White is also up a central passed pawn, has the (slightly) safer king position, and the bishop pair.
I always find it interesting to see in what kind of positions strong players resign.
|Dec-11-06|| ||LoveThatJoker: What happens if Black would have played 19...Re7 instead of 19...Rf8?|
It appears to me that Black would have been alright. He would have had a Rook for Bishop and pawn - although granted White would have the advantage of greater development. But with proper defense Black could probably consolidate.
I would be interested to hear your comments on my suggestion of 19...Re7.
|Dec-11-06|| ||mig55: <thorndeux> Dont forget it was the great Bronstein who sat against him...|
|Dec-11-06|| ||Manic: Lol so simple that most of us took some time to find it. All looking for a queen sac yeh?|
