|Feb-19-07|| ||TrueBlue: Qb5 was the BIG error by white?|
|Feb-19-07|| ||YouRang: I found it pretty fast, because I always look first at the opposing king's situation. Here, I noticed that white's king was immobile -- meaning that any unblockable & uncapturable check was mate.|
The only pieces that can deliver check (while keeping the white king immobile) are the queen and DSB. In this case, the first check (with the queen) is capturable, but the 2nd check from the bishop is not. Check, and mate.
|Feb-19-07|| ||tatarch: You gotta love games like this where an overly materialistic player just gets abused. And, I like that if I had to guess when this game was played without seeing the date, I would probably guess about 100 years prior.|
|Feb-19-07|| ||YouRang: This guy has an interesting bio: Emil Joseph Diemer|
|Feb-19-07|| ||BishopofBlunder: This took an agonizingly long time to find. What makes it worse is I have seen this game before, and it still took me a while. Like others, I was stuck on the discovered check.|
The lessons to be learned from this game for "NN" are: 1) Develop, develop, develop, and 2) Keep the woman in her place (at least until you get the King safe).
|Feb-19-07|| ||fm avari viraf: There are many such examples where either White or Black gets mated. It's very surprising to see in a corr. game where one has all the time under the sun to analyse but here White keeps swallowing hefty Elephants-Rooks without paying any heed to the trap.|
|Feb-19-07|| ||playground player: How could I have forgotten that a Monday puzzle always features a Queen sac? But I still think moving the Knight for a discovered check leads to a nice spell of chasing the White King all over the board and finally nailing him. There's really nothing the White pieces can do here.|
|Feb-19-07|| ||beatles fan: proud to say that I found it in a split second. With mondays there is only one line to calculate!|
|Feb-19-07|| ||kevin86: Black pulls the triple play of chess games;he sacs his queen and two rooks-and mates in fifteen moves!|
The mate is like a fool's mate against an open king-instead of a smothered one.
|Feb-19-07|| ||Cannon Fodder: Was Nemo Nostradamus playing White?|
|Feb-19-07|| ||Black Vampire: <True Blue:That's a shame, the puzzle should have started at move 12!>
No, it isnīt. Itīs a Monday puzzle, so it must be easy (if you want to start at move 12, the puzzle would be for Wednesday or Thursday); besides, Black made a mistake, because 12...Qxe4+ is much better, according to Crafty 19.01. In fact, the checkmate is only possible after the pretty greedy 14.Qxh8??|
|Feb-19-07|| ||Black Vampire: Well, True Blue, 11.Qb5+ was the first important mistake, but the real blunders were the captures of both of the Black rooks and the pawn b7.|
|Feb-19-07|| ||Themofro: Easy puzzle to start off the week, main difficulty is to do away with Bb4+ which would also win i beleive, but the queen sac is much more elegant.|
|Feb-19-07|| ||tjshann: I got to this late today, but did manage to solve it after realizing fairly quickly that discovered check did not lead to a clear Monday one-two and out.|
|Feb-19-07|| ||kulitbulilit: Who is NN!!? Why wasn't his name given in full? Will somebody tell me please! I'm intrigued!|
|Feb-19-07|| ||LPeristy: Took me a rediculously long time, as I was fixated on trying to get something out of the disco check. But I did get it eventually.|
|Feb-20-07|| ||Tactic101: This double rook sacrifice and Queen sac definately was much safer than Anderssen's Immortal Game.|
|Jan-18-09|| ||WhiteRook48: NN takes too many sacrifices...|
|Nov-28-11|| ||IRONCASTLEVINAY: NN means anonymous.|
|Mar-02-12|| ||Infohunter: <kulitbulilit: Who is NN!!? Why wasn't his name given in full? Will somebody tell me please! I'm intrigued!>|
<IRONCASTLEVINAY: NN means anonymous.>
Correct; the abbreviation is derived from the Latin "Nomen nescio," which means, "I do not know the name."
|May-14-12|| ||Llawdogg: Both rooks and then the queen!|
|May-15-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Cool game by Diemer, today's Player of the Day!
|Aug-09-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Guess-the-Move Final Score:
NN vs E J Diemer, 1978.
YOU ARE PLAYING THE ROLE OF DIEMER.
Your score: 38 (par = 27)
PS. Par is now 28.
