|May-15-12|| ||jffun1958: 40. ... Qxg2 41. Rxg2 Rb1+
... R(any) and mate on g1.
|May-15-12|| ||Once: It's one of those "Teatime of the living dead" positions. After an unexplained and unrealistically sudden zombie apocalypse, the last remaining human survivors are holed up in a shopping mall as an ironic post-modern comment on the evils of consumerism.|
Meanwhile, the hordes of undead (the only bad guys that are so unspeakably evil that it's morally okay to shoot them) are trying to get in.
You plug one hole (on g2), so they start coming in somewhere else (g1). And eventually there are just too many of them. The press of bodies crashes through your feeble barricade.
Of course, if you were out in the open you could easily run away. But stuck in that shopping mall ....
|May-15-12|| ||dragon player: A queen sac on tuesday:
Time to check.
|May-15-12|| ||morfishine: <40...Qxg2+> forces mate|
|May-15-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: 40...Qxg2+ 41. Rxg2 Rb1+ 42. Rf1 Rxf1+ 43. Rg1 Rfxg1# or 43...Rgxg1#|
|May-15-12|| ||TheaN: 15 May 2012
Material: even (heavy pieces + 6p endgame)
I'm guessing White 'failed' to make the timepoint at the 40th move cause after:
<40....Qxg2† 41.Rxg2 Rb1† 42.Rf1 Rxf1† 43.Rg1 Rxg1‡ 0-1> White's down and out. Sacs on g2 are pretty common in combination with back rank threats and White missed it this time around.

- tr. from P Vergilius Maro (mostly)
|May-15-12|| ||zb2cr: Seems like a Monday puzzle. All simple because it's almost all forced. 40. ... Qxg2+; 41. Rxg2, Rb1+; 42. Rg1, (either)Rxg1#. White could push this off one more move by playing a useless Rook interposition with 42. Rf1 first, but that is the only choice he has!|
|May-15-12|| ||mistreaver: Qxg2+ and Rb1 follows. This one doesn't deserve a notepad|
|May-15-12|| ||SuperPatzer77: < mistreaver: Qxg2+ and Rb1 follows. This one doesn't deserve a notepad>|
<mistreaver> LOL - 100% agreed! It should change "Easy" to "Very, Very Easy"
|May-15-12|| ||chrisowen: Ar good in qxg2+ dangle the queen in front of feed in one rxg2.|
Single in aim it nice in to the breach in 41.rb1+ meets the required
chief look in form it b2 in slide across tab.
Pin g2 obtuse too black in tree cull a g2 " oat so simple " seperate
we qg2 eat from a g2 enact he chaff in gharial black queen come
scaliwag in dig again white quacked?
In cackhanded 39.rf3 steps up peekaboo: it fetch in b2 laced in>>
Little husky it seems to be a specialist line of Eising folds in con
qd7 gargles the nexuses dutifuls in grabbing rookg2.
|May-15-12|| ||gawain: Seems that 40...Qxg2+ forces mate quickly.|
|May-15-12|| ||scormus: With most us us focussed on the WCC its thoughtful of CG to let us off with a Monday puzzle today. Tomorrow is a rest day for them so we'll probbaly get a Friday puzzle.|
|May-15-12|| ||kevin86: 40...xg2+!!. Once white is forced to open the door to his first rank,he never can keep it shut!|
|May-15-12|| ||BlackSheep: 39.Rf3 blockading the pawn was a howler the pawn didnt need blockading and it hands access to the 7th rank to black , and to follow it up with Qd7 was just diabolical . Qc2 or Qd1 (instead of Rf3) would have solved the problem (but would be admitting that he has no winning chances) black is still a bit better but has a long way to go for a point and may only achieve a draw in the long run .|
|May-15-12|| ||FSR: 40...Qxg2+! 41.Rxg2 Rb1+ and the mighty Polug bites the dust.|
|May-15-12|| ||TheBish: Polugaevsky vs J Eising, 1974|
Black to play (40...?) "Easy"
40...Qxg2+! 41. Rxg1 Rb1+ leads to mate (42. Rf1 Rxf1+ 43. Rg1 Rbxg1#).
See, I told you that Tuesday was queen sac day! It just so happens that yesterday (Monday) was a bonus.
|May-15-12|| ||dzechiel: Black to move (40...?). Material even. "Easy."
Right at the last move of time control, black is able to play...
I'm sure this ended the game. White was no longer under any time pressure, and had ample opportunity to work out...
The only legal move.
41...Rb1+ 42 Rf1 Rxf1+ 43 Rg1 Rgxg1#
|May-15-12|| ||TheBish: "Eising on the Cake"|
|May-15-12|| ||Patriot: "Easy"--It certainly is. 40...Qxg2+ 41.Rxg2 Rb1+ 42.Rg1 Rxg1#|
|May-15-12|| ||Ratt Boy: I agree that it was very very easy. Looks like this is one of those unusual weeks with two Mondays.|
|May-15-12|| ||1stboard: White's move 40 should read Qd7 ??
A major blunder.
The correct white move 40 should be Qd1
|May-15-12|| ||bharat123: The mate is rather elementary. Polugaevsky is too strong to miss it. Was it time troube?|
|May-15-12|| ||Ratt Boy: Yeah, this seemed like a bit of an easy one.
I just checked my calendar. It doesn't seem like this is a week with two Mondays. So I gues my calendar is broken.
|May-16-12|| ||rilkefan: <<Cibator>: Eising of arms and of a man ....>|
Brilliant pun. Much levity here.
