Dec-08-03  youngplayer11: when i found the solution i spen a little too much time looking at 26...Kh7 but white mates in that case too
Dec-08-03  rochade18: got this one immediatly...! oh, i'm sorry.
I also agree with caseclyde. You would go crazy or lose on time if you looked for a combination all the time.
Dec-08-03  MoonlitKnight: Executing the winning moves is a craft. Getting into the positions where there are winning moves is an art. That's how I see it.

<You would go crazy or lose on time if you looked for a combination all the time.> Like Fischer/Morphy? :)

  kevin86: A queen sac leading to the Arabian mate-fabulous!! I guessed it quickly too,although i spent a few seconds on trying to divert the queen. I even thought of the double bogey move,♖a1,which is suicide!

The classic arabian mate is Wh:♖g8 or h7,♘f6; BL:♔h8

Dec-08-03  BeautyInChess: I can't believe by 10:15 there this many comments.
Dec-08-03  unclewalter: i wasn't trying to brag...i was simply observing that even someone with a microscopic brain, such as myself, could see this mate pretty quickly. just a little attempt at light-hearted humor. small joke, small brain, i suppose.
Dec-08-03  uponthehill: Pogo5- See my comments, and then see yours. And answer the question who has brought more into that site.
Dec-08-03  Nova1990: <unclewalter> I'm glad you clarified your position because your first post seemed reminicent of a very annoying poster named "GMShirtlessrocketman". My suggestion to people here that they keep in mind that there are children and other beginners visiting this site who might feel good at solving a puzzle and then become discouraged at reading a post such as the first one on this page.

  kevin86: FOr chess fans who like other games-here is a fun site:www.darkfish.com

It is free and you can play several different games against a computer. They include:checkers,reversi (Othello),and a slightly more grusome game in which you decide how many skulls to remove at each turn--the game is usually played with pencils. There are two other games.

All of these game require much less thought than chess,but they can be fun also.

who said children are beginners?

Dec-08-03  Nova1990: <talchess> lol, ok some children aren't beginners.
Dec-08-03  technical draw: <moonlitknight> Good science. However at the sub. atomic level you have to take into account Quantum Tunneling and then it's possible that unclewalter had the answer BEFORE he saw the problem.
Dec-08-03  Benjamin Lau: I thought that quantum physics was still a theory. Btw, that really killed the joke td. ;-)
Dec-08-03  technical draw: <BL> Do you mean the joke about the "pretty" microscopic brain? If it's not beautiful, it's superfluous.
Dec-08-03  talchess2003: :P Unclewalter got SHUT DOWN by Moonlit Knight.
Dec-08-03  talchess2003: <I'm glad you clarified your position because your first post seemed reminicent of a very annoying poster named "GMShirtlessrocketman".>

Hah, yea, that guy was annoying. My guess is that his ELO was no more than 1400. I remember him once saying that only a novice would lose to the Scandinavian Defense. The funny thing is that Karpov has lost twice to that defense :P

Dec-09-03  MoonlitKnight: I think if Fischer became a poster here, we would probably just assume it was GMShirtlessrocketman who was back with another nickname. Or perhaps GMShirtlessrocketman IS Fischer!? :)
Dec-09-03  talchess2003: LOL. Yes, the Fischer in his 60's. May just be ;p

  InspiredByMorphy: 15. Nxe5 and 21. Rxd5 are brilliant moves. Schlecter was a combinational genius!
Sep-28-04  Giancarlo: Yes, Carl Schlechter was a very good player, it's too bad how he never won the title, and how he came so close.
Mar-05-08  JG27Pyth: 25...♔h7 offers no glimmer of hope. 26.♕f5+ g4 (...♔g8 27.♖e1#) 27.♕d7+ with mate in 1.
Jun-15-08  Octal: Doesn't 20. Ng5+ win the queen immediately?

  optimal play: <Octal: Doesn't 20. Ng5+ win the queen immediately?> Nope.

If 20.Ng5+ then 20...Kg6 21.Rxd5 cxd5 22.Ne6 Qd7

or 21.Qxe7 Bxe7 22.Rxe7 Kxg5 23.Rxg7+ Kf6

I hope 5 years 9 months wasn't too long to wait for an answer from someone.

Chess after all is a game of patience ;)

Jan-06-15  jimcrickman143: Schlechter was a very great chess artist whose style foretold that of Capablanca. It is a tragedy he never because world champion and that he is largely forgotten.
Nov-15-16  TheFocus: This game is from the New Vienna Chess Club Winter Tournament. Carl tied for 3rd place. This game was played on November 25, 1993.
