Dec-04-13  LIFE Master AJ: 15.NxP/f7! seems to finish Black. (Black will lose his Queen - or get mated, it would seem.)

I hope I got that right, took about 1.5 minutes on the whole problem.

  kevin86: The knight sac sends the adverse king on a long desperate stroll to his doom.
Dec-04-13  MostlyWatch: King hunt? looks more like the king going on an expedition. Got turned around, own goal kind of thing. Saw what he thought was a deer, shot a horse

  Jimfromprovidence: Another line to consider is 15 Nf7+ Qd7 16 Bxe6 Bf8?!

White wins in a number of ways. One of these is after 17 Ng5+ Kh8 18 Bxd7 Rxd2 19 Be6!?

  beenthere240: This combination, in which the knight takes on f7 and opening the e6 pawn to be captured by the queen (sometimes there's a Q-R battery on the e-file, is useful. You see it a lot in the Caro Kann.
Dec-04-13  GoldenKnight: I agree, the Q cannot run, or she's lost. OTB I would have only needed to see the first three moves (which I did). To those of you who did that, give yourselves a full point.
Dec-04-13  Dr. J: <gofer> I also went for 21 g3+. Looks like no-one else did. Like the game, it's mate-in-4 (after 22...Qxd4).

  Castleinthesky: Got the Nf7 and the queen check. If I were playing, I would go for the sac just to chase the king around the board.
Dec-04-13  pericles of athens: <beenthere240> I was thinking the same thing. There's a brilliant Carlsen game that features that tactic in a Caro-Kann but I can't seem to remember which one exactly.
Dec-04-13  LoveThatJoker: <15. Nxf7! Kxf7>

(15Qc8/Qd7 16. Bxe6 )

<16. Qxe6+ Kg6 17. Qf7+ Kf5 18. Be6+! Kxf4 19. Ne2+! Ke4>

[19Kg5 20. Qxg7+ Kh4 (20Kh5 21. Bf7+ Kh4 22. Qg3#) 21. g3+ Kh5 22. Bf7#]

<20. Ng3+ Kf4 21. Nh5+ Ke4>

[21Kg5 22. Qxg7+ Kxh5 (22Kh4 23. g3+ Kxh5 24. Bf7#) 23. Bf7+ Kh4 24. Qg3#]

<22. Nxf6+! Bxf6>

(22gxf6 23. Qxh7+ Kf4 24. Qf5#; 22Kf4 23. Nd5+ wins)

<23. Qh5!> 1-0 as this mates in all variations.


Dec-04-13  LoveThatJoker: Wow, I found a really sweet alternate!!


Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: 22. Qxg5 is a move quicker. I think most decent players would play 15. Nxf7 and worry about the rest of the line later.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: I see <MHassan> and <gofer> mentioned the quicker mate.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: This puzzle was pretty easy, until black played 16...Kg6, putting up resistance.
Dec-04-13  Daehlertron: Isn't 17. g4 faster?
Dec-04-13  Steve.Patzer: I wish that Chessgames would add a like feature. It would make it easier to commend comments like those which Jimfromprovidence made.
Dec-04-13  BOSTER: Aftet 19.Ne2+ game is over.
Dec-04-13  KingPetrosian: Another gem where an opposing king pays visit to the king's kingdom to negotiate who will win! Black underestimated his opponent this time around! Brilliant game!
Dec-04-13  Bob Loblaw: Hey <chrisowen>are you a non English speaker translating your comments using Babelfish?
Premium Chessgames Member
  morfishine: <Jimfromprovidence> Again, you've produced an ingenious continuation! But taking a lesson from the recent World Championship, where Carlsen even stated himself in Game 9 "That things were getting too complicated", Why not keep it simple with <19.Nxe2 Nxd7 20.Rac1 Nd5 21.Be5>

Down the exchange, Black has dismal prospects here


Dec-06-13  pericles of athens: This is the early Carlsen game I was thinking of: Carlsen vs S Ernst, 2004
Dec-07-13  john barleycorn: <Daehlertron: Isn't 17. g4 faster?>

Yes, nice find <Daehlertron!

17.g4 threatening mate by Qf5 or Qf7.

Both can be prevented by 17....Qd5.

Then 18.Nxd5 and mate in 3, I guess

Dec-07-13  john barleycorn: O00ps, there is still 17....Bd5 which I did not see as I forgot Bb7 on the board when setting up the position...
Dec-14-13  MarkFinan: This is a really good little miniature game with some nice tactics. I think ill start a game collection of minis too. I'm going to let stockfish look at this game from 15.Nxf7 onwards because surely black could have got out of this, albeit material down.

Dec-14-13  MarkFinan: Miniatures are game's with under 25 moves, right?
