  YouRang: <jahhaj: Nice, but I think a few people won't get this.>

True words. Those of us with "mate attack" blinders on won't get it. :-(

Sep-26-06  Halldor: Easy but most impressive. :-)
Sep-26-06  vibes43: Wow, scary, got this one in less than a minute. Just didn't see any quickie attacks othrwise for Tuesday puzzle. But didn't see 26 .....f5 either. Tomorrow will probably bring me back to reality.

  kevin86: Dare we call the final move Tal-like? White traps a rook with a queen by thrusting her right into the path of said rook! If the rook captures,the queen will be reborn in two short moves. Missed it! Rats!!
Sep-26-06  clausantos: I get it. Maybe because its very easy...
Sep-26-06  cloybloy: found it quite easily. must be my lucky day.
Sep-26-06  CoryLetain: What an easy puzzle. I always look for the queen sacs first as a rule. Found Qg7 within seconds.
Sep-26-06  Microbe: I think I tried every variation with every move except the winning move...I didn't even consider it!!! urgh...

On a more positive note, it's very cute little tactic that works due to the fundamental geometric isolation from other pieces that this particular section of the board has.

Sep-26-06  vesivialvy93: ha ha ha ....i was looking for multiple sacrifice with Qf8+ and the possibilities of the rook after N moves ....good lesson of simplicity here !!!

  alphee: Easy:I do not know, elegant: definitly. I didn't get it. Lateral thinking may be something I miss, quoting <you rang: Those of us with "mate attack" blinders on won't get it.> How true!

  beenthere240: What's cool about this is that white saw this possibility around move 20 and just making a bee-line for the g7 square. Even if black saw the threat there wasn't much he could do.
Sep-26-06  silenthinker: got this one :D one of the few puzzles i solved.
Sep-26-06  blakjak: can someone tells me how this wins? because after 24)...Rxg7 28)fxg7 Nh7 it seems to be pretty hard on white since he's down a queen

  unferth: <blakjak: can someone tells me how this wins? because after 24)...Rxg7 28)fxg7 Nh7 it seems to be pretty hard on white since he's down a queen> well, 28 ... Nh7 isn't possible, but it doesn't matter. no matter what black's 28th is, white promotes to a queen on the next move. white is up a rook, not down a queen.
Sep-26-06  aazqua: Pretty easy, but I guess it is Tuesday. The pawn with the knight is a useful motif to know.
Sep-26-06  netlava: I didn't see it.
Sep-26-06  micron: In the line given by chessmoron the move number is off by one. I commend to your attention an improvement after Black's 26...h6. After 27. Nf3 White queens next move unless 27... Kf7, in which case 28. Ne5+ does lose the g7 queen candidate but wins the Black Q. In the meantime the pressure on the Black e-pawn does not evaporate, and White has not given up a N for P as in chessmoron's continuation.
Sep-26-06  LPeristy: Couldn't get it a few hours ago. I came back to it and got it almost immediately.
Sep-26-06  Major Dude: Can't say I saw it right away, but did find it non the less. Love these combinations way more than forced mates.
Sep-26-06  olelz: couldn't find the answer... argh. and it is Wednesday here.

  Marmot PFL: < LPeristy > Exactly the same reaction. Either the mind works differently at different times and moods, or subconsciouly it was solving the problem all along. Maybe a little of both.
Sep-26-06  Fezzik: This took me several minutes to see. I had to keep checking to see if it really was Tuesday before I found the "easy" win.

This is an elegant position that seems to cry out for an attack on the e-file. Finding the real winner was a nice challenge!

  patzer2: White's 23. Qh6! "forces" Black to defend with 23...Nf8, enabling him to create the decisive double attack threat of capturing the Rook or the coronation of a passed pawn.
