Jul-23-04  Chesspatch: if black played 39 ... Bd6, would that be unsound?
Jul-23-04  suenteus po 147: And another question here; what happens after 42.Rxc2? I realize that this was a correspondence game and that the answer is probably 16-ply deep, but I don't even see the beginnings of the advantage black will use to win this game (not that I'm doubting Honza's skill. I'm not :)

  crafty: 42. ♖xc2 ♖h1+ 43. ♗xh1 ♕xg3#   (eval -Mat02; depth 4 ply; 1M nodes)
Jul-23-04  zb2cr: After 39 ... Bd6; 40 Qc3+, Kh7 I can't see anything better for White than 41 Bg2. Then Black takes the Pawn at e2 with the Rook and White has to defend another threat. If then 42 Qf3, Bxa3 and the White Queen looks overworked. Does this look right?

And after 42 Rxc2, the answer isn't 16-ply deep. 42... Rh1+ looks strong. If 43 Bxh1, Qxg3#. If 43 Kg2, Qg1#. If
43 Kg4, f5#. I think that covers all the possibilities.

Jul-23-04  zb2cr: Oh. I didn't realize crafty was going to beat me to it :)
Jul-23-04  MoonlitKnight: If you look more closely, this is actually a mate in two! I'll leave the answer untold so anyone can test themselves.
Jul-23-04  MoonlitKnight: Too late. :)
Jul-24-04  suenteus po 147: Boy, don't I feel stoopid. That bishop was always in the way in my mind's eye, but once you remove the bishop mate is inevitable. Oh well, it's a good mate. I need to remember this lesson.

  Honza Cervenka: In this game I was trying to improve Alekhine's line from his 1914 St. Petersburg's game against Lasker but I has to admit that I was not successful although I won the game in the end. Mr. Chvojka played it perfectly to the move 22 where he could have played forcible 22.Rad1! instead of feeble 22.Qa6+?! After 22.Rad1 I would have played 22...Rc7 with idea 23.Qa6+ Kb8 24.Rb1+ Ka8 25.Rb6 Rhc8 26.Bxc6+ Qxc6 (forced) 27.Rxc6 Rxc6 28.Qc4 Rxc5 which is still quite good for black thanks to mighty passed Pawn c3, but white had also other continuations, for example 23.Rd3 which gives him huge and probably decisive advantage. 22.Qa6+ allowed an escape of black King to the Kingside and it turned the table.

<Chesspatch> 39...Bd6 is sound and good but I did not want to allow white Queen to give a check on c3.
