Nov-27-06  Microbe: Even I got this one. Oh and I saced the queen as I'm cruel ;-)
Nov-27-06  melianis: I got 6.Qh5+ g6 7.Qg4 Rg8 8.Qxe6 Nf6 9.Qe5 Bg7 10.Bxg6 hxg6 11.Bg5 Bh8, then realized it was Monday, and played 7.Bxg6+.

  Eggman: I prefer your game, <<dzechiel>>.
Nov-27-06  melianis: truly seems that 4...Ng8 was the last move that'd have "saved" the game. White has to dodge 5...Qb6 and therefore black can get e6 in. Even though his King has to stay in the center (too crampy position on the q-side & too dangerous on the k-side) and requires constant care, black might be able to practise defensive skills (longer than in the game, at least ;-) ) after 4...Ng8.
Nov-27-06  artemis: <dzechiel> Yeah, I have one on this theme too:

1. e4 b6 2. d4 Bb7 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. Bd3 d5 5. e5 Ne4 6. e6 f6 7. Bf4 Nxc3?? 8. Qh5+ g6 9. Qxg6+ hxg6 10. Bxg6#

Nov-27-06  Ch3ckmate: lol i must remember this one.. a good weapon to humiliate beginners
Nov-27-06  Rubenus: I already knew this one, so it was even easier to find the solution. It is indeed too easy, even for Monday.
Nov-27-06  zb2cr: Found it on first glance. Step 1: provoke the advance g6. Step 2: Capture with Bishop or Queen. Step 3: Recapture with mate.

  Phony Benoni: Solved it before seeing the entire position. Just scrolling down as far as Black's third rank was enough.

  howardb86: Just right for me. But! I've been away from chess for 32 years. So think of us old guys trying to get retooled. What a great site. Getting ready for my grandkids who are coming on strong in school out west...what a Great game chess is !
Nov-27-06  Red Eyed Knight: ....and a great job to Damant on spelling London with an "e"!
Nov-27-06  haha: This one is so easy, lol, even I got it in 2 seconds xD

I finally got one is a long time :)

Nov-27-06  alphee: or 7. ♗xg6+ hxg6 8. ♕xg6#.

  YouRang: Good Monday puzzle. I must admit that in my pre-coffee, bleary-eyed state, my first thought was to follow 6. Qh5+ g6 with 7. Bxg6 hxg6 8. Qxh8??.

But I suspected that there had to be more to it than that, so I looked a little harder and noticed that I had mate in my face with 8. Qxg6#!

Nov-27-06  TTLump: <n30: 0.5 secs> where do you get one of those chess clocks that measures fractional seconds? I could sure use one of those for my 5-cup (of coffee) blitz games!

  kevin86: How about this one! Just five moves and a forced mate in three-with a queen sac to boot,though it is not mandatory for the mate.

Variation on a theme by a fool.

Nov-27-06  TTLump: Notice where this game was played ... (Londen?). Never heard of it. And I think NN stands for Nevabotny Nobodovich and I am doubt very much he has been playing chess since 1590! This puzzle is a SCAM! I want a refund!

  WannaBe: Londen is the Dutch spelling of London.

  thegoodanarchist: Well, if NN payed $$$ to play in the simul, he didn't even get his money's worth! Eight moves? I lasted 23 moves against Mednis.
Nov-27-06  Stonewaller2: I solved this one in 1931, a year before the game was played and over two decades before I was even born. ;)
Nov-27-06  CoryLetain: kewl I actually get every move.
Nov-27-06  greensfield: Hey <dzechiel> In your game, I see you had the Black Knight hopping about. 5 times in 7 moves, in a game lasting barely 11 moves. I bet it was great fun!
Nov-27-06  Minty: These make me laugh. In these positions with the mate after a capture on g3/g6, it's always the queen that gets sac'ed instead of the bishop, as if it somehow makes the mate more sophisticated or attractive. But it doesn't. A queen sacrifice is only attractive when it's the only way. Otherwise, it's just pretentious.
Nov-27-06  Tenderfoot: Taking with the Q first is way sassier. It's like he's saying, "I don't even need this to mate you."
Nov-27-06  TTLump: there is a classic fools mate on this theme with the colors reversed that does not involve any sacs and only lasts 2 moves ...
