|Jan-20-14|| ||offramp: It took me thirty second but I was up in the old gyrocopter.|
|Jan-20-14|| ||BjarneNielsen: <morfishine> and <offramp>: Made me smile!|
|Jan-20-14|| ||landogriffin: Van der Wiel playing the Van der Wiel Attack here - surely that's cheating?!|
I would suggest it would have been an oversight on Timman's part to have expected anything else!
Small world... :)
|Jan-20-14|| ||whiteshark: <28.Rxa6+>, and that's it.|
|Jan-20-14|| ||Penguincw: Ah! Good way to start off the week. 1/1|
|Jan-20-14|| ||goodevans: It was entertaining to play through the whole game, though somewhat surprising that Timman played on once he was two pieces down.|
|Jan-20-14|| ||zb2cr: Rook sacrifice to end it. 28. Rxa6, bxa6; 29. Qxa6#.|
|Jan-20-14|| ||morfishine: <goodevans> I was thinking the same thing when I went through the game: "Ok, Timman tosses a piece, there goes another...utto, he's about to lose another..."|
|Jan-20-14|| ||evlozare: just love mondays, but white's up 2 pcs and if you didn't get this, better play checkers.|
|Jan-20-14|| ||Doniez: Took to me 20 seconds and I was in a business meeting. Oh Monday, so lovely!|
|Jan-20-14|| ||norami: Took me 20 seconds but I was worried about foreign policy.|
|Jan-20-14|| ||patzer2: <l wazir: I think black was justified in continuing to play after giving up the ♗: after 22...Bxd4 he would be down only a ♙, but his ♔ is in a precarious situation.>|
I was curious as to why Black didn't play 22...Bxd4, so I plugged it into Fritz.
According to Fritz 12's best line, Black is down a Bishop after 22...Bxd4 23. Bxd4 Qh6+ (worse is 23... Rxd4? 24. Qe6+! Rd7 25. Rc5+ Kb8 26. Qxd7 when Black is down a whole Rook and close to being mated) 24. Qxh6 gxh6 25. Rc5+ Kd7 26. Rxc4 (+ 4.96 @ 20 depth on a 2.1GHZ dual core Intel processor).
|Jan-20-14|| ||chrisowen: Lade for one cut-off a8 down delve a6 every across, |
line feels good am cap efface off gain a guffaw force a6.
I be proof wins clink king at beck and call i ha fetch in chauff around line castle to sees a dips afraid knot aim farm e5 in c4 it now in a ok knight clop edict oomph off come horse alive no more black...
had to c6 knight go bishop in c4 wins a piece after eg i ment rook empty ramble give in blew away f5.
Huff and puff came aka try c4 off in a foilable mission select la bind free f5 having question of a fashion eg liege nt in rich again really e7 advance,
do the math a dock con-dangerous over ignobles a d8 in be a good while to gutoff longer bill to rights
again left feeds giving engage early be half way there bus i bash aha far flow crimp said fetch to free honour he accustom in a tour king back to the heap,
wall cad hone in a done deal ay rook d6 takes down a6 definately in free binding a8 you nearly think a6 is safe although one slide a6 gives a mate in 2.
Sketch i a8 trapped it edge in bag a slot shin the sun all centre to a mind a6 creep d6 over straight line a pad feel bosch d6 made calls in feels a honour to sac a6 it zip in zag call goodnight black c6 would catch a oomph you line delve in blew away jaffa aim c4 and f5 clean him up pets hip jack a length in to mission abort a6 deepen advances carries a8 king off the day a foot in the door ala bind f5!
Balls in lights court again piece up ride a lion mainly to believe (rabble to ruin the echo) around bag flights in eg free d6 rook slide bad feel i very much like the advance nature to seal off a bet rook destroy affable ah king stuck for now to engages at headlong 28.Rxa6+ in saccades 28...bxa6.
King ha feels the pinch in bullseye 28.Rxa6+ at safety in mind if i see correct a8 has nowhere to go aim f4 cuts off b8 escape route sack d6 rook i fab elates for white a fog over now efface to king am bullrush 28...bxa6 29.Qxa6#
|Jan-20-14|| ||OhioChessFan: Took me 20 seconds, but I didn't stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night. (And it was tougher than most Mondays)|

This is really the essence of the position ! A fine piece <chrisowen>.
I have analyzed a couple of times with
van Wiel.A nice guy with a fine sense of humour.Always on the right side of a pint ;)
|Jan-20-14|| ||Once: It took me 20 seconds, but I will never get this stain out of my trousers without industrial-strength bleach.|
|Jan-20-14|| ||BOSTER: When Naka played 51.Qf4 ( see the diagram ) Van Wely thought < A nice guy with a fine sense of humour>.

|Jan-20-14|| ||Cheapo by the Dozen: Took me some 10s of seconds as well. It looked like the long diagonal came into play, until I checked the other corner of the board and noticed a queen in it.|
|Jan-20-14|| ||Pnice: for all of us that do not have an avatar next to our name this problem is a 20 seconds or less problem even when drinking with friends...all the rest with silly pictures next to their name they take it too serious and therefore take longer than 20 seconds.|
Stay thirsty my friends

|Jan-20-14|| ||JimNorCal: <moronovich>: "Always on the right side of a pint"|
Tougher than today's puzzle, but I'll take a crack at it. The "right" side of a pint is for the person to be "outside" the pint. In other words, the pint is "inside" the person.
|Jan-20-14|| ||Nullifidian: 28. ♖xa6+ ♙bxa6 29. ♕xa6#|

You got it!
|Jan-21-14|| ||BOSTER: <Pnice silly pictures take longer than 20 sec.>
After 51...qxf4 is draw .
Only 2 sec. , but not for you. Be nice< Pnice.>
|Jan-23-14|| ||kevin86: An easy mate in 2-thank God for Mondays! 28 ♖xa6+ and mate by ♕xa6#|
