|Sep-16-12|| ||grasser: Thats a good one FSR. "We need to keep our kids in check". Was the first thing I thought of.|
|Oct-08-12|| ||Mendrys: It is interesting that while white's sacs were unsound for the most part he was able to pressure black enough to allow him to make enough mistakes to lose. I think there was a psychological effect on black who must have thought "Oh hell, he must see something big" and that affected his play. |
Full disclosure, I did bring out the engines when I say white play 16. Qb5. That just seemed too slow. Houdini prefers 16...b6 and 17....Bb7 with a huge lead for black. Blacks text moves just seem to play into the eventual mating attack.

|Oct-08-12|| ||TheTamale: The best I'm seeing after the king escapes by 21) ...Kg7 is 22) Rb8+ Kh6 23) Ng4+, forcing the trade of the queen for a knight. But no, wait, that's no good, because then 23)... Rxf1+, 24) Kxf1, Bxg4, and Black stands well. Maybe White just plays 23) Rxg6+ straightaway and finds a mate soon thereafter...?|
|Oct-08-12|| ||FairyPromotion: <TheTamale> I think after 22....Kh6 the best is a quiet move that threatens a mate in one. At first I was looking at 23. Rf4, but black seems to be able to avoid an immediate mate with Nc5, or Bf5. Now I'm looking at 23. Qc4, after which black has to play either Bg4 or Qg5. Then you play RxQ, and it seems like mate is unavoidable.|
|Oct-08-12|| ||perfidious: Pity there's no player in the DB with the surname Child; that would be a classic matchup indeed.|
|Oct-08-12|| ||kevin86: Black will not be mated soon,but it is HOPELESS for him.|
|Oct-08-12|| ||Tigranny: Love the pun, a memorable and funny movie. :)|
|Oct-08-12|| ||Jim Bartle: TWO movies.|
|Oct-08-12|| ||Catfriend: I thought "Bad Parenting" might be a decent pun :) Of course, a pity the opening wasn't KID!|
|Oct-08-12|| ||HeMateMe: A pun for us middle aged folks.|
|Oct-10-12|| ||TheTamale: <FairyPromotion> Ah yes, good eye. Black can forestall with 23) ... RxN, preventing the immediate mate, but he seems to take a bath anyway. Strange, considering how much material White has given up.|
<Catfriend> Good one!
