|Apr-04-05|| ||aspiringpatzer: I feel that 33. d5 offers a wonderful opportunity for black to contain the white bishop. My preference would have been to play 33. ...e5, thus locking the white bishop behind his own pawns. Then the rook sac g6 loses steam. Thoughts? |
|Apr-04-05|| ||notsodeepthought: <aspiringpatzer> After 33 ... e5, simply d:c6 wins (white is a rook up, and another black piece will fall on the next move). |
|Apr-04-05|| ||KillerDarwin: I solved this one in a flash! It was so easy! |
|Apr-04-05|| ||noone2: Does 31 ... Qd8 save the game?
i.e 32 d5 Rc7 33 d:e6 B:e6 34 B:e6 Qf6+
followed by Q:e6
|Apr-04-05|| ||Knight13: The puzzles on these days or these few weeks are kinda easy. Did my chess skill improve or did <chessgames.com> chose the easier ones than before? |
|Apr-04-05|| ||zb2cr: <stonewaller2>,
You slipped a little on the notation. The Black Queen interposes on f7, not e7.
And as <notsodeepthought> points out, 38 Qxh5 is not check and loses the Queen.
So I think your line should end with 38 Qh7+, Ng7; 39 Nf4, d5; 40 Nxd5 and White's dominance is embarrassing.
|Apr-04-05|| ||aw1988: Oh dear. I missed something obvious. |
|Apr-04-05|| ||hsbsitez: Would have been more tougher if it had asked for #33 |
|Apr-04-05|| ||Stonewaller2: Now how did that sneak in there on g6 to spoil all my fun? Well, , and two s for and ain't such a bad trade. Thanks for the advice. |
|Apr-04-05|| ||zb2cr: Actually, something better than <stonewaller2>'s line suggests itself:|
35 ... e6; 36 xe6+, f7; 37 xg6+,
and now 3 variations:
a. 37 ... f8; 38 xf8#.
b. 37 ... h8; 38 xf7 winning more material with the mate threat at g8.
c. 37 ... g7; 38 xf7+, f8 (if 38 ...h8; 39 h6#); 39 d5, c7; 40 xd6+, e7; 41 f4 and Black is in deep, deep trouble.
|Apr-04-05|| ||Ezzy: 33..Rc5 should be ok. 34.dxe6 axb3 35.exf7+ Kxf7 36.Qxg6+ Ke7 37.Qh7+ Kd8 38.Rg8+ Be8 39.Qxc7+ Rxc7 40.cxb3 Rh7 With an interesting endgame! |
|Apr-04-05|| ||Kingdumb: If I could figure this out then this was beyond easy, it was child like. |
|Apr-04-05|| ||Ezzy: Yes, Ladislav Mista defence to 33 d5 |
|Apr-04-05|| ||resty: hahaha, i missed it. poor me, oh how can i improve my chess |
|Apr-04-05|| ||Backward Development: <Major Premise: Tal to play and win.
Minor Premise 1: Sac the Q.
Minor Premise 2: If that doesn't work, sac the R. >
You might have been thinking what Tal himself was thinking! Consider this quote:
"First, how to sac my queen, then rook, then bishop, then knight, then pawns." – Mikhail Tal (on what he thinks about after his opponent moves)
|Apr-04-05|| ||alexandrovm: this time I got this right |
|Apr-04-05|| ||colp99: Too easy. Lickety-split. |
|Apr-05-05|| ||Stonewaller2: <zb2cr: Actually, something better than stonewaller2's line suggests itself> That happens a lot. So may a chessplayer grow wiser every day. Thanks again for your insignt. |
|Apr-06-05|| ||noone2: <Ezzy> 33... Rc5 34 d:e6 a:b3 35 e:f7+ K:f7 36 Q:g6+ Ke7 37 Q:h5 R:c2+ 38 Kb1 lights out for black |
|Apr-06-05|| ||midknightblue: everyone here is making me feel really stupid for having missed this. i shall give up the game of chess. |
|Apr-10-05|| ||patzer2: Tal's 33. d5! deflection sets up 34. Rxg6+ fxg6 35. Bxd5+, winning easily. |
|Apr-10-05|| ||aw1988: aw1988's 33. Qxh5?? is absolutely pointless. |
|Apr-10-05|| ||Gregor Samsa Mendel: <midknightblue> Don't give up the game of chess just because you missed some little tactical shot. With that sort of attitude, I would have given up chess long ago.|
I wonder what I'd be like now if I'd given up chess long ago. I'd probably be less frustrated, have more money, have lots more extra free time than I do now...
Oh dear, this "pep talk" doesn't seem to be going very well.
|Apr-11-05|| ||Stonewaller2: Giving up chess is easy. I've done it hundreds of times. The big money HB Global Challenge however has lured me out of retirement. See you all there next month. Apologies to Mark Twain. |
|Apr-13-05|| ||patzer2: Hmmnn! I'm having second thoughts. Maybe, after 33. d5!?, Black can hold with 33...Rc5!?|
According to Fritz 8, play could continue (33...Rc5 34. dxe6 axb3 35. exf7+ Kxf7 36. Qxg6+ Ke7 37. Qh7+ Kd8 38. cxb3 Rc2+ 39. Kb1 Be8 40. Qxc7+ Rxc7 41. Kb2 Nf6 , when Black's extra piece might just hold against White's three plus pawns.
