Jan-04-12  zb2cr: Blackburne's mate! White plays 11. Qh5!

If 11. ... Bxf6; 12. Qh7#.

If 11. ... gxh5; 12. Bh7# is the aforementioned Blackburne's mate pattern.

  FSR: morfishine: Me too. It's traditional for holders of the Morphy avatar to have done so, since Morphy spent a lot of time in Paris and surely must also have visited the Louvre and seen the Mona Lisa.
Jan-04-12  sethoflagos: <morfishine:>, <LoveThatJoker>

Not so embarrassing to be beaten by a 2-year old tells us that black was but 3 years old himself :-)

  FSR: sethoflagos: Good point!
Jan-04-12  CHESSTTCAMPS: In this opening position, white is down R for a N, with an uncastled king. Black threatens 11... Bxf6, winning, but white gets in a winning shot first:

11.Qh5 gxh5 (otherwise 12.Qh8#) 12.Bh7#

Monday-level puzzle, with familiar, but pretty mate. To reach this position, it seems that the preceding moves must have been 10.Ng5 Bxh1, but why would black not have played 10... Bxf6?

Jan-04-12  Patriot: 11.Qh5 looks like a winner to me, threatening mate on h7 or h8. 11...gxh5 12.Bh7# or 11...Re8 12.Qh8#.
Jan-04-12  CHESSTTCAMPS: OK, now it makes more sense.
Jan-04-12  kurtrichards: 11. Qh5 1-0
Jan-04-12  Sassa: Hi all! I´m new around here and a beginner at the study of chess, so I hope you don´t bother if my question sounds stupid! Is there something wrong with the move 7... Nxg4, since the knight can be protected by the h pawn if white plays Rg1?
Jan-04-12  King.Arthur.Brazil: Very funny andeasy... perhaps the old advise "take care when the religion (2 B) point to your noise (King)" must be applied here(no matter how you get rich = win a R...). Qh5 at first glaceand tick the clock... Here my late "happy 2012" everypbody! Embrace/King Arthur BRZ
Jan-04-12  Patriot: <Sassa> Welcome to this site! Feel free to ask any questions you would like. Black probably didn't want to open the kingside. Perhaps white could play 8.Bxg7 Kxg7 9.Rg1 h5 10.h3. I'm just throwing a line out there but now must go!
Jan-04-12  King.Arthur.Brazil: Sassa: white pointed 2B to your King side, give you a P, cause he wanted open lines for attack. After ...Nxg4, 8. Tg1 h5 9. h3 Nf6 10. Ng5 treats the combination: Bxf6... Qxh5 with Qh7++. How to avoid it whithout lose material and position...Black is trapped.
Jan-04-12  newton296: amusing game, played with lots of animal spirit. but in the end, this game contributes nothing.

11) Qh5 1-0 is about all I can say.

  Penguincw: Hehe. I got it right. :)
Jan-04-12  njchess: When I first saw this puzzle, I thought, "The queen is on the back rank... so much for a queen sac puzzle." LOL Glad I took a closer look.
Jan-04-12  goodevans: Welcome <Sassa>.

<Patriot> and <King.Arthur.Brazil> have given two lines where black is made to pay for nabbing the pawn on g4. In <King.Arthur.Brazil>'s line I would play 10 Nh4 rather than 10 Ng5, but that's a minor quibble.

The underlying message is that it can be dangerous to open files in front of your king whilst you opponent still has plenty of pieces to attack with. One measly pawn just ain't worth all the problems it can cause!

Jan-04-12  twin phoenix: While going over the game i kept asking myself... "When did black give white permission for the ostentatious 11. Q-h5!! ?" (Permission in the sense of <Once>) The only place i can find fault is black's 5.--,h6. it seems to voluntarily open blacks kingside for the coming onslaught. whites play seems flawless.

This is definitely <Gilmoy>'s style. I am a costly computation man myself :)

  johnlspouge: Nobody seems to have mentioned it: the pattern is called "Blackburn's Mate", and I have added it to my Game Collection: Named Mates.
Jan-04-12  Sassa: Thank you all for the answers! I realy have to expand the way I see the board!
Jan-04-12  LIFE Master AJ: 11.Qh5!

Nice mate, time to see if this is an interesting miniature - to add to my collection.

Jan-04-12  solskytz: not even a second to spot this - what's it called? Anastasia mate? The three minor piece mate? the can't-stop-it-at-h7 mate? Or it's irrelevent-where-the-enemy-pieces-are mate?

Qh5 gets the cork out from this bottle of champagne. Spotlights on the one-before-the-last on the h file.

Jan-04-12  desiobu: 11. Qh5!

Something went really wrong for black here.

Jan-04-12  jackpawn: Not that anyone cares (or should!), but I found this solution immediately. Almost a Monday puzzle.
