Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-29-02  bishop: The consequenses of losing two much time in the opening grabbing pawns are nicely illustrated in this game
Jan-20-03  ughaibu: I like the distant check from a8.
Aug-22-04  mack: This would be a neat puzzle at 16...?
Sep-04-04  patzer2: If 18. Kg1, then 18...Rg6+ 19. Bg5 Rxg5#. If 18. Kh3, then 18... Qf3+ 19. Kh4 Bd8+ 20. Bg5 Rh6#.

If 18. Kg3, then Black mates after 18...Rg6+! 19. Bg5 as follows:

[19. Kh4 Bd8+! 20. Bg5 Bxg5+ 21. Kg3 (21. Kg4 Bf6+ 22. Kf5 Rg5#; 21. Kh5 22. Qf3#; 21. Kh3 Qf3#) 21...Bf6+ 22. Kh3 Qg2#]

[19. Kh3 Qf3+ 20. Kh4 Qg4#]

18. Kg3 Rg6+ 19. Bg5 Rxg5+ 20. Kh4

[20. Kh3 Qf3+ 21. Kh4 Qh5#]

18. Kg3 Rg6+ 19. Bg5 Rxg5+ 20. Kh4 Rh5+! 21. Kg3

[21. Kxh5 Qf3+ 22. Kg5 (or 22. Kh4) 22...Bd8#]

[21. Kg4 Qg2+ 22. Kxh5 Qg3+ 23. Kh4 (or 23. Kg5) Bd8#]

18. Kg3 Rg6+! 19. Bg5 Rxg5+ 20. Kh4 Rh5+! 21. Kg3 Rh3+! 22. Kxh3

[22. Kg4 Qf3+ (or 22...Qg2+ 23. Kf5 Rh5#) 23. Kg5 h3#]

18. Kg3 Rg6+! 19. Bg5 Rxg5+ 20. Kh4 h5+! 21. Kg3 Rh3+! 22. Kxh3 Qf3+ 23. Kh4 Bd8#

Sep-04-04  patzer2: Black's 16...Bxg2+!! is the solution to number 4936 in Laszlo Polgar's 1994 book "Chess, 5334 Problems, Combinations and Games."

Note the essential role the subtle 17...Qa8+! plays in the attack. For example, the "obvious" 17...Rg6+?? is a blunder as it allows White to turn the tables and wins with 18. Kf3!, escaping Black's attack with a decisive material advantage.

However, after the subtle 17...Qa8+! (one of those rare winning checks where the Queen attacks from a far distant square) Black has a forced mate. Sweet!!

May-16-08  Whitehat1963: Wednesday/Thursday puzzle after 17. Kxg2.
