|Jun-07-05|| ||notyetagm: Advanced knight forks can be set up by <deflection and decoy>: playing a forcing that removes the defender of the forking square (<deflection>)while simultaneously forcing this defender onto a target square from the forking square (<decoy>). In this example the White king which defends the f3-forking square is checked away from f3 and forced on to the g1-target square by 38 ... ♖g1+! 39 ♔xg1 ♘f3+ 40 ♔g2 ♘xd4 41 ♖xd4, winning queen for rook and knight.|
|Jun-07-05|| ||chesswonders: I am beginning to solve more and more of these daily puzzles off late! Hope it's only the increase in my performance level, but not a drop in the difficulty level of the puzzles :)|
|Jun-07-05|| ||erimiro1: The key move is 37. - R:f1!, while 38. - R g1 is obvious. If 38. K:f1 N-f3, is winning a piece|
|Jun-07-05|| ||jamesmaskell: I had Ne4. The first comment by eric xanthus made me assume the knight had to scare the bishop off so the queen could come down to support the rook. I now notice my mistake...my bad.|
|Jun-07-05|| ||alexandrovm: 38. ...Rg1+ 39. and white can't get the rook because of the knight fork. After that I can't see any continuation...|
|Jun-07-05|| ||alexandrovm: lol, of course! the queen is lost anyway :) That is why white must take the rook with the king. Nice knight fork...|
|Jun-07-05|| ||Saph: Again, I wish I could see this sort of thing in my games.|
|Jun-07-05|| ||alexandrovm: I just read your profile <Saph> and we have a lot in common! I love and play some piano, I made some compsitions for piano and I like the Simpsons. Hope we can get in touch some day, cya!|
|Jun-07-05|| ||Nickisimo: Yep, easy one, but I'm sure they'll get insanely difficult soon. The rook here is like the guy in volleyball who sets up the spike for his teammate. That's how I envision it anyways. :)|
|Jun-07-05|| ||farrooj: easy one, took about 10 seconds. <Eric Xanthus: It's "power of the knight" week. Hurray.>|
I hope its power of the knight week, knight combos are the coolest
|Jun-07-05|| ||YouRang: Yeah, pretty easy. Nobody can fork as well as a knight. Here, you can just sense that the knight is going to strike. |
In this case, it wins a queen for a rook+knight, and it also leaves black in a position to create a protected passed pawn on the d file. It should be a fairly easy win for black.
|Jun-07-05|| ||zb2cr: That was easy to see. Worked it out to the point of seeing that Black ended up
by Queen vs. Rook and Bishop and stopped.|
|Jun-07-05|| ||pittpanther: After 38 Kxf1 I think the correct reply is 38...Bxd3! The white king can only go to g2 followed by Be4 and then Nf3 winning the Bd2. If black plays 38 ... Nf3 in response to Kxf1 he is in trouble after 39. Qe3 because after 39 ... Nxd2 40. Qxd2 Qxb6 41. Qxh6! he is goint to succumb to the attack on his king.|
|Jun-07-05|| ||Shokwave: Well, I can't say much about my thought process on this one; I saw the whole thing in the first glance. C'est la vie; somedays the easy ones are so easy you don't really "think" to solve them, you just see the answer immediately, while other days an easy one escapes you for far too long.
Mind you, I *did* spend a few seconds looking for an even better continuation, like a forced mate...but the first idea worked best.|
|Jun-07-05|| ||myratingstinks: knights trump.... as usual|
|Jun-07-05|| ||kevin86: Cavalier week! Knight fever! Horsing around!-The knight rules in this one. The game could have ended in a workman type ending,but white struck his colors to give more glory to the finish.|
|Jun-07-05|| ||benveniste: To add a epiloge to this knight's tale, had white played BxN at move 29 or 30, this game might well have gone the other way.|
|Jun-07-05|| ||InspiredByMorphy: 38.Kxf1 Nf3 39.Qe3 Nh2+ gives black a winning advantage.|
|Jun-07-05|| ||RookFile: I guess after 43. Ra2, you play
... Qxd3 in preference to ... Qxh5.
|Jun-07-05|| ||aktajha: This is my first post; i might not know enough yet, but wouldn't it be saving if white had played: 38. Bxg5 which may have continued: 38. ... hxg5 39. Kxf1 Qc2 40. Kg2 Bxd3|
Or. 38. ... hxg5 39. Kxf1 Bxd3 40. Qxd3 Qxb6
with possibilities for both sides?
|Jun-07-05|| ||YouRang: <aktajha> Welcome aboard. In the short time that I have been here, I've earned a solid reputation for having my chess-related comments exposed as howling bloopers.|
You'll be happy to know that I think your sequence of moves look fine!
|Jun-07-05|| ||Jimzovich: <aktajha> May I add to your comments: "A POORLY played game by white" Just an opinion.|
|Jun-07-05|| ||Richard Taylor: Very easy (but a great litte combo!) and the follow up was easy to see - or at least there was clerlyno defence for White - that can be seen from the starting position -only if White can hold his pawns can he hope for equality or better.
An interesting game of attack and defence by both players: Uhlmann is/was no bunny...|
|Jun-07-05|| ||Richard Taylor: <Shokwave> exactly - saw this one -but similar ones I have completely missed - tried to find a complex variation instead of the "obvious"...lol|
|Jun-08-05|| ||InspiredByMorphy: <aktajha> Great post. 38.Bxg5 saves white. Isnt it interesting how if white hadnt blundered with 38.Rxa6? the game wouldnt have made puzzle of the day with a play and win caption for blacks move 38.|
