|Jan-28-04|| ||Resignation Trap: Can you spot the forced mate that Reshevsky missed on move 30? |
|Jan-28-04|| ||TheMightyPawn: <resignation trap> 30...a7 31.b6 c1+ etc. ,right? |
|Jan-28-04|| ||Brian Watson: 30..Qa7. 31.Rxd3 |
|Jan-28-04|| ||matein8: My thought is 30...Rc1+ 31. BxR Qa7+. I don't see how Black can be stopped after that.|
Chessgames.com might want to spring this on us in a few months for their puzzle of the day.
|Jan-28-04|| ||TheMightyPawn: <matein8> U r forgetting black still has backrank problems.So in ur line after 32.f1 ,black has to play h6 to avoid 33.d8#. |
|Jan-28-04|| ||matein8: <MightyPawn> If 32. Kf1 then Qf2#. But you bring up a good point about Black's backrank weakness. I think it's a good idea to look at weaknesses on both sides when looking at problems. |
|Jan-28-04|| ||TrueFiendish: Well spotted, Resignation Trap! |
|Jan-28-04|| ||matein8: Let's see, if 32. Kh1 Nf2+ 33. Kg1 Nh3++ 34. Kh1 Qg1# (or 34. Kf1 Qf2#)|
Yes, well done Resignation Trap. BTW did you use an anagram program for your username?
|Jan-28-04|| ||TheMightyPawn: <matein8>oops ! i missed Qf2#.
and yeh ,well done resignation trap. |
|Jan-28-04|| ||Resignation Trap: I "found" my username with
|Jan-28-04|| ||matein8: <Resignation Trap> That's interesting. I came to the exact same site when I heard about anagrams from the old movie, "Rosemary's Baby". |
|Oct-16-04|| ||Marius: <capanegra> the game Carlsen vs Lahno, 2004 could perhaps go in your collection |
|Dec-27-05|| ||syracrophy: The mating combination was:
30...Rc1+!! 31.Bxc1 Qa7+! 32.Kh1 Nf2+ 33.Rg1 Nh3+ 34.Kh1 Qg1++
|Mar-03-07|| ||tpstar: Just to clarify, 30 ... Qa7?? is incorrect due to 31. Rxd3 or even 31. Rd8+! spoiling the mate (31 ... Rxd8 32. Bxa7), but 30 ... Rc1+! 31. Bxc1 Qa7+ is the right track.|
