|Aug-13-07|| ||realbrob: <Manic> You're right, my "puzzle" has something like 4 solutions. Should've put the king on f7, so White has one mating move.|
|Aug-13-07|| ||skemup: clint what have you done??:)
easy but took me 30 sec.
|Aug-13-07|| ||beenthere240: 6. Nd5 was a nice move (moving the same piece twice admittedly) but putting the heat on black.|
|Aug-13-07|| ||Marvol: <Phony Benoni: <realbrob> 1.Qf2, right?>|
I find 1.Qa7! to be more artistic.
Pretty bad that that puzzle has more than one solution, don't you think?
|Aug-13-07|| ||Tactic101: Ouch! Bb5 and it's game over. But the part about this being correspondance just makes it even more hilarious.|
|Aug-13-07|| ||Mostolesdude: I really doubt this player was Clint Eastwood. Clint graduated from High School in 49 and then joined the army afterwards. I dont think he was into chess at all in 1949.|
|Aug-13-07|| ||Sibahi: this is not correspondence. I think cr stands for circa.|
|Aug-13-07|| ||monopole2313: I thought Clyde was the name of the orangutan.|
|Aug-13-07|| ||PAWNTOEFOUR: ohhhhh,i'm so glad it's monday!! Bb5!.....now ferocious beast would have solved this one yesterday|
|Aug-13-07|| ||YouRang: An oldie, but a goodie. I think this combination was in the first chess book I ever saw as a kid.|
|Aug-13-07|| ||playground player: Zap! Looks like Barnett made Eastwood's day by playing Qc6. I had my puzzle-solving streak snapped at 13 over the weekend, so I hope this starts another one.|
|Aug-13-07|| ||Jack Kerouac: Clint Eastwood anagram:
Old West Action.
|Aug-13-07|| ||kevin86: Rare is it an opportunity to pull off a pin or a fork in less than ten moves-he white does both. d6 looked good-it opened a line and defended the knight at g4. Alas,it also opened the line between black's royalty. White takes advantage of a "knight triangle" b5-c7-e8. to set up a fork on the king and queen should black capture at b5. Black sees it all-and gives up the ship.|
Funny Monday puzzle: here we trap the queen instead of sacrificing it.
|Aug-13-07|| ||newton296: Barnett should know bettter than to mess with dirty harry! |
I heard after the game clint met barnett behind the playing hall and and had his chimp " clyde " beat him every which way but loose!
|Aug-13-07|| ||Monkey King: Pie Jl|
|Aug-13-07|| ||whiteshark: |
The simple-minded played 7...d6 and settled back complacently...
|Aug-13-07|| ||patzer2: The puzzle solution 8. Bb5! allows a winning fork which garners the Black Queen after 8...Qxb5 9. Nxc7 .|
|Aug-13-07|| ||patzer2: <RV> Enjoyed your Clint Eastwood immitation. Of course I first watched Clint when he played Rowdy Yates on Rawhide, as pictured at http://yuma.tv/rowdy_yates.htm.|
|Aug-13-07|| ||fm avari viraf: Well, again the fork trick that allows White to pin her Majesty without support. If 8...Qxb5 then 9.Nxc7+ & picks up the Queen. During my chess career spanning 37 years, many have been a victim to similar fork trick.|
|Aug-13-07|| ||wanabe2000: Why resign? White might blunder his Queen away too. I saw 8. Bb5 at once and the fork but this was easy.|
|Aug-13-07|| ||YouRang: <newton296: Barnett should know bettter than to mess with dirty harry!> Except that it was Dirty Harry (Eastwood) that lost!|
Those of you wondering what <RandomVisitor> was talking about, it's a reference to this scene in the movie "Dirty Harry", starring actor Clint Eastwood: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yykf...
|Aug-13-07|| ||OBIT: 7...d6 looks like Eastwood walked into it, but 7. Qf4! forced the issue, threatening both QxN and Nc7+. So, I think Black needs to look for an improvement to 6...Qc6. |
6...Qd8 seems like the most obvious choice, but it leaves White with a clear advantage, and anyway, running back to d8 is like admitting the early queen excursion was a bad idea. :) So, I'm thinking 6...Nxe3 7. Nxf6+ Ke7!? (of course, 7...gxf6 leaves Black with shattered pawns) 8. Bxe3 Kxf6, and I'm thinking Black's position is decent. Yeh, I know the king is on f6, but the queens are off the board, so I can't see that being too big a problem.
|Aug-14-07|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: <Phony>, correct is 1.Qa7, no?|
|Aug-14-07|| ||Fourpointo: You're right Sneaky. On second thought, "beginners" is the proper term.|
|Jun-09-09|| ||Andrijadj: Deserve's got nothing to do with it:)|
