Apr-08-17  Walter Glattke: Mutley 101, yes, won ending for white.
Apr-08-17  Toniera: Lovely!
Apr-08-17  Geronimo: Such brilliance! Instinct (not calculation... I wouldn't go that far) suggested moves through 21...Qe6. That's where I stopped, finding no way to regain the exchange. But without finding the best continuation it would be hard to start this on instinct alone. Nice Saturday puzzle CG!
Apr-08-17  clement41: Indeed this is an interesting game to watch from a pawn structure viewpoint. 17 Bxc4 looks right as it weakens black's light squares even more, however it looks as though black will manage to break with ...d5 however determined white is to prevent that from happening, hence perhaps the agressive plan that followed, starting 18 f6. I failed to see it trough the end, and noticed if white can deflect or destroy the Nb8 then Rxf6'd net a piece, without managing to actually implement that idea
Apr-08-17  morfishine: I got <19.Rxf6> followed by <20.Qg4+> but didn't see the dazzling sequence that follows. Very powerful

*****

Apr-08-17  Salaskan: <cheapo by the dozen> After 20.Bh6 simply Qxe4. I missed that too
Apr-08-17  Abdel Irada: ∞

I'm a little annoyed with myself.

I readily found the first three moves (19. Rxf6!, 20. Qg4 and 21. Qh4), but I never even considered the real star move: 22. Nd4!!

Without that move, the attack runs out of gas rather quickly, and no rook lift will revive it.

  beatgiant: Is there nothing better than 24...d5? How about 24...Rg8 hoping to jettison some material? 24...Rg8 25. Rf3 <Rg5>, so 26. Bxg5 fxg5 27. Qxg5 Qg6 appears to stave off the immediate threats.

24...Rg8 25. Rf3 Rg5 26. Qh4 looks strong but then <26...Qa2> with annoying play on the first rank.

  Breunor: Can somebody help me with the finish here? Black plays 27... R d6. If 28 N x f6 then R x f6 29 R x f6.

I was thinking then black plays Q x c2. Here he has the back rank threat and the threat of Q x e4 defending h7, If for example white plays 30 h3 then black has Qc1 ch 31 h3 Qf4 ch for instance. I'm sure there are other lines but I'm not seeing a clear win.

If white plays 28 R x f6 then black has Nd7 and again I don't see a win..

Thanks for any help.

Apr-08-17  morfishine: <Breunor: Can somebody help me with the finish here? Black plays 27... R d6. If 28 N x f6 then R x f6 29 R x f6.> Not 29.Rxf6, but <29.Qxf6+> followed by the rook lift

  Jimfromprovidence: I'm thinking that 24 Rf1 that was the only winning move white had.

Anything else like 24 Qh6?! loses that one crucial tempo white had.

So if 24 Qh6 Rg8 does 25 Rf1, below, still win?

Apr-08-17  mel gibson: Nice game.
The computer gives only a pawn & a half advantage to white:

19. Rxf6 (19. Rxf6
(♖f1xf6 ♕c4xe4 ♖f6-f3 f7-f5 ♗e3-f2 f5-f4 ♕d1-d2 h7-h6 ♖a1-e1 ♕e4-c6 ♘b3-a5 ♕c6xa4 ♘a5-c4 ♕a4-b5 b2-b3 ♕b5-b7 ♘c4xd6 ♕b7-c7 ♕d2-d5+ ♔g8-h8 ♖f3-d3 ♘b8-c6 ♕d5-c5 ♖f8-d8) +1.60/18 122)

score = +1.60 depth 18

Apr-08-17  protonchess: If 24. .. Rg8 25. Rf3 Rg5, maybe 26. Rg3.
Then a move like 26. .. Qa2 can be met with 27. Rxg5, because White Bishop still guards the first rank.

I checked with an engine and it gave 24...Rg8 25. Rf3 Rg5 26. Rh3 and announced mate in 9.
Apr-10-17  Moszkowski012273: Black has drawing chances with 24...KxN
Apr-10-17  Moszkowski012273: Whoops! No that's wrong...

  ChessHigherCat: <beatgiant: <ChessHigherCat> How does White win a piece after 19. Rxf6 gxf6 20. Bh6 <Qxe4>? That's a good point but if 30...Qex4 white at least has Bxf8, Kxf8 and then Nc5 forking the Q and the pinned rook.

  beatgiant: <ChessHigherCat> I must be missing something. 19. Rxf6 gxf6 20. Bh6 Qxe4 21. Bxf8 Kxf8 22. Nc5 <dxc5> and White loses, not wins, a piece. And I don't see what pin you are talking about - couldn't be 23. Qxd7?? Nxd7.
Apr-11-17

  ChessHigherCat: The pin is because the Q is still on d1 at 19. Rxf6 gxf6 20. Bh6 Qxe4 21 Rxf8 Kxf8. I was overlooking the fact that the sneaky little black-on-black N on b8 protects the R on d7, however, so you're right that the fork doesn't work.

  beatgiant: <ChessHigherCat> And I confess that I, myself, posted an "improvement" for Black that got him checkmated a lot sooner. I look forward to playing chess with you in the re-education camp, comrade ;-)

  ChessHigherCat: <beatgiant> Now that you can look forward to a nice leisurely stay in the gulag, maybe you can help me with my question about Anand vs Kasparov, 1995, because I know you're an excellent analyst. I must be missing something but I can't figure out what.
