Black just moved 17. Bc6 it is white to move, 18. Ng6+!. 17. Bxf3 IS NOT POSSIBLE because he is not set up to do that yet. hxg3 is forced
and Qh3# is mate.
Very well played <notyetagm> and good set up in 60 seconds
|Apr-17-06|| ||poachedeggs: Got it in a few seconds as well...there has to be a better move for white than 18 f3 ???|
|Apr-17-06|| ||deefree: snore|
|Apr-17-06|| ||notsodeepthought: <chiguire: unless I am mistaken, you guys are giving <notyetagm> unfounded critisism.> Why? Just because they wanted black to play two moves in a row? What's so <unfounded> about that?|
By the way, nice game, <notyetagm>
|Apr-17-06|| ||YouRang: Heavy artillery aimed at the white king, and the key escape squares g1 and g3 blocked off. So, all that stands in the way of mate is the h2 pawn, which is easily eliminated by the queen. Good Monday puzzle.|
|Apr-17-06|| ||WarmasterKron: Silly Easter has messed up my internal clock. I was looking for something complex, because I thought it was Sunday.|
|Apr-17-06|| ||schnarre: This was a nice & easy one!|

|Apr-17-06|| ||DoctorChess: Sleep zzzz...... I love E-Z Mondays...|
|Apr-17-06|| ||kevin86: This is pure Monday puzzle stuff:queen sac,mate in two.|
The trick in today's puzzle is seeing the far away black bishop on a7.
25 ♘xd6: that move scared black as much as Jason was scared by a couch thrown at him in Friday the 13th Part seven..

Yes, do they really think I would post a game where I hanged my queen like a patzer?
|Apr-17-06|| ||jackmandoo: This game is a perfect example of a "Checkmate". The king cannot go anywhere to escape check. This should be a lesson to us all to try and achieve this in our games. I know that sometimes we just move pieces around, not really thinking about it. Try and go for a checkmate on nearly every move.
Or, if things are starting to get too complicated in the game, start moving your pieces back to the origional starting position and insist that the other player do the same, especially if you are bigger and much older than him. This will allow you another try. There are many more examples of ways to beat your opponet in my book called "Beating Your Opponet In Chess, Literally, Like Beating Him If He Starts To Win." By Jackmandoo of course.|
A major rule I have in my book is to try and play people that are smaller and weaker than you, in the chess community this is fairly easy. If you are not very strong yourself I suggest playing the elderly. This will help ensure victory.
|Apr-17-06|| ||HELLOHELLOWATER: Can anyone read my quote?? Answer|
|Apr-17-06|| ||jhoro: (this is about the game <notyetagm> posted on page 1) nice combination at the end <notyetagm>. btw on move 12 you had the strong 12.c5+ capturing the dark bishop. you actually played it couple of moves later - better late than never i guess ;) i can't even dream of playing 60-sec control. i was very impressed.|
|Apr-17-06|| ||TheAlchemist: <jackmandoo> You are too much :-). Aimen!|
|Apr-17-06|| ||TheAlchemist: <HELLOHELLOWATER> What? Where?|
Seriously, welcome to the site and have a pleasant stay!
|Apr-17-06|| ||Chess Classics: <jackmandoo> LOL, you're killing me.|
Aah, the one good thing about Monday's-the Monday Puzzle.

Thanks for being impressed with my mediorce bullet skills. :-)
Yes, I saw that improvement when I replayed the game. But it was bullet so as long as you do not hang your queen, you are happy. :-)
You ought to see some of the bullet games that Nakamura plays on ICC, truly unbelievable.
|Apr-17-06|| ||OBIT: Well, studying the position after 23...Qh5 was certainly educational for me, since I didn't believe Black was winning. Even noticing 24. Rd1 Rg5 25. Nf1 Bh3! didn't concern me too much, since it looked like White had a Plan B: as suggested by <dakgootje>, play 24. Nb3 to prepare d4 and shut out the bishop on a7. However, after 24. Nb3 b5! 25. Nce2 Be3!, Black prevents the bishop from getting blocked out, and his attack cannot be stopped. |
The final surprise is that the placement of the knight on b3 is part of White's problem. If the knight were adequately protected, I think White could still defend his position. For example, move the white pawn from b2 to a3, and I think White is still okay after 26. Rfb1! Rg5 27. Nf1!, threatening Nxe3. In the game position, however, 27. Nf1 just hangs a knight.
|Apr-17-06|| ||unferth: <awfulhangover: My dog, who does not exist, could do better than white's b3 or Nxd6.>|
by far my favorite comment ever on this site ...
|Apr-17-06|| ||SilveredSpirit: This one stumped me.
...until I realized it was black's move -_-
|Apr-17-06|| ||Knight13: <Whitehat1963: O.K., so why did white bother with 26. Kxh2??? Come on, even I got this one in about two seconds. Don't you have to write down your move before you play it? I mean, when I've got my king in the corner and someone sacs their queen right in front of my king, the odds are pretty good that the game is over, aren't they?> No... In this case, White could've REALLY THOUGHT Black was sacrificing a queen for no reason. Come on... You know what I mean. :)|
|Apr-18-06|| ||dakgootje: <However, after 24. Nb3 b5! 25. Nce2 Be3!, Black prevents the bishop from getting blocked out, and his attack cannot be stopped.> True...thats a smart move, so probably white was all together not in a very good position ;-)|
<Please note, the game of the day/or pun of the day archive is free to all, but the tactics (Puzzle of the Day) archive is only accessible if you have premium membership.> Yes i know (you might have missed it, but im here around for longer then 1 day ;-), so that was why i asked it as im not a premium member =)
