|Aug-25-06|| ||ianD: 30.Ne3#...completely missed it!|
|Aug-25-06|| ||jhoro: i came with the convoluted 25.Qh6... with the idea of controlling f4 and f6. it still wins, but far cry from the beautiful mate Albero played.|
|Aug-25-06|| ||banjo: o yes,this one saves my week.
my first point :-)
i saw this mate in six in seconds.
not because it's that easy,but
it's easy because we all saw that
kind of sac often enough,and it
always works the same straight way.
|Aug-25-06|| ||kevin86: It seems odd for a Friday puzzle:The entire play is forced and mate is quick. Maybe-to some,it was TOO obvious.|
|Aug-25-06|| ||Spudds: The pawn push also ends this game, 30.h3#?|
|Aug-25-06|| ||Grampmaster: <Spudds: The pawn push ends this game, 30.h3?>|
I don't think so. On 30.h3+, Black gets new life with 30...Kxf5! discovered check
|Aug-25-06|| ||dakgootje: lol, lets blame it on the vacation, but i didnt know what day it was, so the first thing i thought: mate in 2...|
While doing other things my mind probably double checked it as a minute later i realised Nh4 saved lol
Back at the puzzle it surely took 5 minutes before getting the whole combination...
|Aug-25-06|| ||lazydaisy: i am not sure this was a friday puzzle. far too easy, the position screams for a queen sac, then all you have to do is to figure out the line, which is not that hard. i sometimes have trouble solving some of cg puzzles at the end of the week, but this one took me no more than 5 seconds. looking forward to the next one, hope it is more worth the "effort".|
|Aug-25-06|| ||IT4LICO: i saw f4+ and i couldn't see more. in fact there is nothing more...|
|Aug-25-06|| ||BadKnight: Too easy to become a friday puzzle. Saw the first few moves within a few seconds.|
|Aug-25-06|| ||donRamon72: Got it at once.It sure feels like a monday puzzle to me.|
|Aug-25-06|| ||aazqua: This is much to easy. SHould be a monday puzzle.|
|Oct-08-09|| ||GMMandetowitch: Wow,I never heard about Roman.|
|Oct-21-09|| ||badenbaden: <ROMAN TORAN: «Segundo curso de Ajedrez»|
11. ...Qe7? Una jugada "mecánica" que representa un grave error táctico, el cual dará una clara ventaja posicional a las blancas. El que fue gran maestro y reconocido teórico O'Kelly, realizó esta jugada de modo automático, pues es normal en este tipo de posiciones en las que las blancas tienen su caballo en "c3" (y no en "d2") La diferencia en el emplazamiento de esta pieza, sin mebargo, tiene fundamental importancia, como veremos inmediatamente.
12.Bxf6! A este sorprendente cambio -un alfil que domina una gran diagonal por un caballo-, no le prestó la menor atención el gran maestro belga. Se basa en un detalle táctico que debilitará seriamente el enroque negro.>
|Oct-21-09|| ||badenbaden: <17.Nf3
Probablemente, la jugada más difícil de la partida. El caballo se encamina a la casilla "d4", desde donde ejercerá una fortísima presión sobre el campo enemigo, así como, en colaboración con el otro caballo blanco, un absoluto control de la casilla "f5".>
|Oct-21-09|| ||badenbaden: <25.Qxh7!
Las negras abandonan.
El dominio de las casillas "f5" y "h5" y la latente amenaza de entrar con la dama en "h6", fueron los factores esenciales del triunfo de las blancas.>
|Aug-24-10|| ||al wazir: 20...Qf8 holds for black.|
|Aug-24-10|| ||blitzkriege: Don't understand one thing. Why 12...gxf6 rather than 12...Qxf6?|
After 12...Qxf6 13.Qc2 d4 black seems fine.
|Aug-24-10|| ||Once: Don't you just love it when a GOTD is a former POTD? It's like being an archeologist as we look back in time to an earlier age.|
|Aug-24-10|| ||blitzkriege: Ignore my earlier comment. Chess blindness made me miss Ne4|
|Aug-24-10|| ||whiteshark: <16...Bxa3> is a suggestion from the technical department. |

|Aug-24-10|| ||Frankenstein17: <for blitzkriege>
After 12...Qxf6 13.Bxh7+ Kxh7 14.cxd5 white can move Qc2. Worse position for black.
|Aug-24-10|| ||kevin86: White mates next by 30 e3#.|
|Aug-24-10|| ||nuwanda: i really dont understand why anybody gets the idea to play 12...gf|
Ok, black has played sloopy and with 20.Bxf6 he gets the bill. he has the choice between the more than ugly 20...gf and 20.Qxf6, loosing a pawn.
with 20...gf you just can wait to be slaugthered, you have no structure, no game, no nothing. after 20...Qxf6 its still a game, maybe objectively lost, but still a game, the half open h-file may even become an issue in your favour.
computeres may see this differently, but from a human, practical point of view there can be no doubt...
|Aug-24-10|| ||rapidcitychess: Mating attacks are always full of beauty and mystery. This is no exception. Not much to say here.|
Roman guards are quite brutal. This is no exception.
But if a commander of a 100 men is a centurion, what is the commander of 16?
