|Sep-25-17|| ||kungfufighter888: i love monday puzzle.|
|Sep-25-17|| ||Altairvega: Mondays turn to be bishop sacrifice days 37..Bh3+ 38. Kxh3 and a beautiful black Queen appears at f1! She will appear even in the case the white King does not kill the black bishop|
|Sep-25-17|| ||Skewbrow: Would 32.Bd3 have saved White? Kills this line, but is there something else for Black?|
|Sep-25-17|| ||widjaja70: Thank you Chessgames.com. I enjoy the new features of chess boards and pieces. It is larger and easier to see !|
|Sep-25-17|| ||saturn2: 37..Bh3 followed by 38..exRf1 gets a qieenp|
|Sep-25-17|| ||AlicesKnight: The combination goes back at least as far as 33... Rxg3+; and now 37.... Bh3+ allows queening safely on f1 whether White captures the B or not.|
|Sep-25-17|| ||lost in space: I love Monday's!
37..Bh3+ and that's it
|Sep-25-17|| ||leRevenant: <mikejaqua: Rats! Missed that last bishop move.>
Rats! I hit the wrong button and consequently missed out on a chance to even try to do today's puzzle. Snif.|
|Sep-25-17|| ||leRevenant: <Cheapo by the Dozen: <Phony Benoni>,
Did you mean that as a comment just about chess?>
I think PB is also referring to König Ludwig of Bavaria, he of Phantasyland.|
|Sep-25-17|| ||stacase: So, I'm wondering if Black misses the obvious and Queens his Pawn with 37...e2xf1+ is it still a win?|
|Sep-25-17|| ||morfishine: <37...Bh3+> eyeing <f1> finishes White|
|Sep-25-17|| ||whiteshark: <lost in space: <<37..Bh3+> and that's it>> Heh, that's my line! :D|
I love Monday's! ;)
|Sep-25-17|| ||Stonehenge: So who where the actual players?
Beltsy 1979 was a Selection to the 47th USR-ch. Sergej Salov played there not Valery.
According to http://шахм... White was https://ratings.fide.com/card.phtml.... They give the site as just 'URS'.
|Sep-25-17|| ||Oxspawn: After Bh3, either the white king takes the bishop or moves, but in either case the black pawn takes the rook and has a coronation.|
|Sep-25-17|| ||vermapulak: From move# 33 (black to play) it could be Wednesday or Thursday puzzle.|

|Sep-25-17|| ||zb2cr: 37. ... Bh3+ makes Queening the Pawn possible.|
|Sep-25-17|| ||FSR: I'm going with 37...Bh3+! A nice trick to remember.|

|Sep-25-17|| ||drollere: 37...Bh3+, 38. Kg1 exf1=Q+, 39. Kh2 Qg2#
i like the way you can play out the varation in Olga, then copy the line for discussion.
chessgames.com is da bomb!
|Sep-25-17|| ||kevin86: I saw the solution in a shot: Bh3+ x-ray attack an f1|
|Sep-25-17|| ||Walter Glattke: 32.Bh5 was the mistake, 32.g3 is a hard
|Sep-25-17|| ||Bubo bubo: After the skewer 37...Bh3+ Black will get (and keep!) a new queen on f1, whether White captures or not.|
|Sep-25-17|| ||patzer2: I had no problem immediately finding 37...Bh3+ -+ as my solution to today's Monday puzzle. The only difficulty I had was in trying to classify the tactic.|
(a) Is it a passed pawn promotion combination?
(b) Is it a skewer?
(c) Is it a decoy?
(d) Is it a deflection?
(e) Is it all of the above?
I think I'll put it in my pawn promotion collection.
P.S.: For a White improvement, instead of 31. Bg6? Re7 ∓ to -+ (-2.35 @ 30 depth, Stockfish 8,) the computer recommendation 31. Ra3 = (0.25 @ 33 depth, Stockfish 8) holds the position.
|Sep-26-17|| ||schachfuchs: I also think that this puzzle should not be a very easy Monday 37...Bh3+ but a very difficult Saturday 32...Rg7.|
