  kevin86: White gives black two offers he can't refuse:a bishop and rook. The bishop CAN be refused-but for only one move as: 29...♔a8 is met by 30 ♖c8+ ♔xa7 31 ♕a5#.

A good Wednesday puzzle.

Feb-21-07  zb2cr: Saw this in a short time. Surprising that this was a postal game.
Feb-21-07  Cannon Fodder: <micartouse>

Me too. Aarrgh! ... Now I have to write 500 times on the blackboard, "I will evaluate every check and capture before making a move."

I kept looking for ways to deflect the d7 rook. Oh brother.

Feb-21-07  Cannon Fodder: <YouRang: That's the great thing about back-rank mates: It doesn't take much material to mate, meaning that you can sacrifice quite a lot in order to set it up. Good puzzle.>

Yes. After seeing that I would be down a rook as well as a bishop, I stopped looking and didn't see mate in one right under my nose. Weak.

  fm avari viraf: Why can't one see such a combination in a corr. game when one has so much time to analyse? Anyway, it's a nice problem.
Feb-21-07  bakuazer: got it in a half minute. beautiful puzzle!

Feb-21-07  nsppp: An obvious combination that contains typical mating construction.I saw it immediately.Anyway,it's a nice finish of well-played game.
Feb-21-07  nsppp: The point is not that the opponent can't see the combination.This combination is result of all the efforts that white had made in the game.Black is just lost.
Feb-21-07  nsppp: If not 28...Qb2 then white will play 29.Qxe5 and winning.
Feb-21-07  nsppp: I think that if 28...Qa6 then 29.Qxe5 Qxa2 30.Ra1 is good enough for win.

  playground player: The pawn at d6 is the key to the whole business for White. It controls the Black King's only escape square. I wonder how secure Black felt before 29. Bxa7+. Some may say this was an easy puzzle (it must be, if I solved it), but I wouldn't have gotten it a few months ago. Thanks for the teaching, CG!
Feb-21-07  MindlessOne: I like this, saw it instantly bxa7 was the first move I looked at.
Feb-21-07  Bob726: Dang! i missed rc8
Feb-21-07  Themofro: Got this one immediately, the bishop sac is obviuos but Rc8+ is a bit harder to find, nice finish.
Feb-21-07  nsppp: OK,it's not that simple;29...b6 looks good for black but I have the feeling white is standing better
Feb-21-07  nsppp: Maybe instead 29.Qxe5 white must play 29.Qc3.
Feb-21-07  nsppp: Black is a pawn up but white's initiative
Feb-21-07  nsppp: looks very dangerous

  outplayer: it took almost 10 min. but i have calculated a 4-move combinarion till the end!!
Feb-21-07  mrknightly: I got the puzzle, but why did Black decline the rook at move 17 and 0-0-0 instead?

  WannaBe: <mrknightly> Because after NxR white plays Rd1! =)

  whiteshark: Better would have been <20... Rxd1+ 21.Rxd1 Rd8 22. Re1 f5 23.f3 Nf6>

and black is better due to the weako on c5 and the center pawn majority.
