|Feb-26-13|| ||darshandatta: Nice queen trap|
|Feb-26-13|| ||Phony Benoni: Smother week. Tomorrow a rook gets The Treatment.|
|Feb-26-13|| ||jokerman: 6.Ng5 is a verry nice move! If 6...e6 white just plays 7.Bxe6! This is one to remember.|
|Feb-26-13|| ||Gregor Samsa Mendel: Shades of L Monosson vs M Fauque, 1935|
|Feb-26-13|| ||Phony Benoni: Or Vasiukov vs S Giterman, 1960.|
|Feb-26-13|| ||JohnTal: Or my favorite Ne6 punchout: Fischer -Reshevsky, 1958. How do you copy a game into one's kibitz - as GSM & PB did?|
|Feb-26-13|| ||Bartimaeus: This was really nice. Yesterday, the king got suffocated and today it is the turn of the queen.|
7. Bxf7+ Nxf7 8. Ne6 and the Queen has nowhere to run.
|Feb-26-13|| ||Phony Benoni: <JohnTal> Probably the easiest is to search for the game, copy the link (or shortcut) by whatever method you use, then paste the result in a kibitz. It will look something like this when pasting:|
And display like this in the message:
Fischer vs Reshevsky, 1958
If you're already on the game page, copy and paste the address at the top of the page.
|Feb-26-13|| ||shivasuri4: <John Tal>, go to the game page, copy the link, and put it in your kibitz, making sure you don't put a full stop right after the link, which interferes with it.|
|Feb-26-13|| ||Abdel Irada: <<>Royally forking Morton?<>>|
All of seven moves into the game, Black is to be faced with a Morton's Fork: Do you want to accept the bishop now and get your queen trapped, or would you prefer to take it a move later and lose her to a royal fork?
<<> 7. Bxf7! ... >
Black has his pick of methods of reginicide:
<<> (1) 7. ...Nxf7
8. Ne6 >
The threat to the king is over, but Her Highness is not so fortunate.
< (2) 7. ...Kf8
8. Ne6 >
After the forced 8. ...Kxf7 9. Nxd8 puts the game out of reach.
|Feb-26-13|| ||Abdel Irada: Would these players' ratings, if combined, reach four digits?|
(To be fair, White *may* be a decent player; Black, however ....)
|Feb-26-13|| ||agb2002: Both sides keep the initial material.
The pawn on f7 prevents 8.Ne6 winning the queen. Hence, remove it with 8.Bxf7+:
A) 8... Nxf7 9.Ne6 followed by Nxd8 + - [Q+P vs B+N].
B) 8... Kf8 9.Ne6+ Kxf7 10.Nxd8+ + - [Q+P vs B+N].
|Feb-26-13|| ||Mendrys: White's development is straightforward and classic while black shows that opening principles matter and how not to play the opening. In fact white had the Bxf7+ shot 2 moves earlier as in |
5. Bxf7+ Kf8 6. Ng5 Ne5 7. Bb5 with a pawn to the good.
If 5...Kxf7 then the queen will fall as in the text with
6. Ng5+ Ke8 (..Kf6 7. Qf3+ Ke5 8. Nd5 Qf8 9. Qc3#) 7. Ne6
5. d4 would have allowed black to escape somewhat with 5...Ng6 removing the horribly placed knight and freeing the bishop. All of this after wondering why e6 wasn't played at some point or another and firing up an engine. We should thank Snijder for giving us such a good example to use to teach our kids about opening principles.
|Feb-26-13|| ||M.Hassan: "Easy"
White to play 7.?
The strangled Black Queen will be dead next move
|Feb-26-13|| ||M.Hassan: 5........a5??|
|Feb-26-13|| ||diagonalley: seemed monday-ish to me|
|Feb-26-13|| ||SamAtoms1980: The black king looks vulnerable, but it's the queen that goes after 7.Bxf7+ Nxf7 8.Ne6|
This is a clinic on how NOT to play a Pirc
|Feb-26-13|| ||morfishine: <7.Bxf7+> and after either 7...Nxf7 or 7...Kf8, White plays <8.Ne6> and the Black Queen is lost|
|Feb-26-13|| ||mistreaver: Tuesday.White to play.Easy.7?
This is sweet :)
7 Bxf7 Kf8 (or Nxf7)
8 Ne6 and black loses his queen
|Feb-26-13|| ||thegoldenband: <Mendrys> <If 5...Kxf7 then the queen will fall as in the text with|
6. Ng5+ Ke8 (..Kf6 7. Qf3+ Ke5 8. Nd5 Qf8 9. Qc3#) 7. Ne6>
After 6...Kf6, I preferred 7. Nd5+ Kxg5 (7...Ke5 8. d4#) 8. d4+ Kh4 9. g3 Kh3 10. Nf4#, myself. But White is spoiled for choice here.
|Feb-26-13|| ||bengalcat47: Here is another example of a "smothered mate" of the Queen|
Tarrasch vs Burn, 1907
|Feb-26-13|| ||HeMateMe: Was this one from last year's Candidates matches?
Tricky for just a second, when you are looking for a mate. Then, just grab the Queen.
|Feb-26-13|| ||zb2cr: This puzzle has White winning the Queen. White starts with 7. Bxf7+. Black's two choices are:|
a. 7. ... Nxf7; 8. Ne6 and the Queen is trapped.
b. 7. ... Kf8; 8. Ne6+ with a fork.
In both cases, White wins the Queen for a pair of minor pieces.
|Feb-26-13|| ||Oxspawn: OK I would definitely have missed this over the board but POTD is saying come and get me so after a full five minutes I found
Now if black plays 7. Nxf7
8. Ne6 wins the queen (and a pawn) for the knight and bishop
If black plays
8. Ne6 has the same outcome except that black does not even get to take both pieces.
By the way, this looks like one of my openings, only I am not playing white.
|Feb-26-13|| ||offramp: klabunde strike!|
