  gars: I love Mondays and hate all other days of the week!
Nov-22-10  FrogC: <Once: The black rook and queen have landed on the seventh rank so hard that they have shoved the castled king one square to the right and the h pawn has fallen off the edge of the board.> Delightful!
Nov-22-10  LIFE Master AJ: I completely missed Sunday's puzzle this week. (yesterday)

***** ***** ***** *****

I did a VERY quick run through my checklist ...

I also noted that Black is a piece up, and should easily win - with best play.

I analyzed (for like 5-10 seconds) and thought, "Ahhh. I'll just play 30...Bf3, and wait for White to resign." Then I had a second look, and realized that 30...Bf3??; is refuted by 31.Qc3+, and 32.QxB/f3.

So I said, (to myself): "Uh-oh, Mr. Smarty-pants, maybe you better take another look at this one ... but do it right, this time!"

Then I took another 30-60 seconds (maybe more, I forgot to time myself - my watch has a stop-watch function) and found 30...QxP/g2+!; 31.RxQ/g2[], (forced) 31...Rd1+; 32.Qe1, RxQ/e1+; 33.Rg1, Bf3#.

If this is not right, I will chew one of my own fingers off.

Nov-22-10  LIFE Master AJ: Mate in four - if I can still count.
Nov-22-10  LIFE Master AJ: <<<Once> Mr Rook: <blushing> I think you are too young to learn about the files and diagonals. Why don't you go outside and play with your friends?>>

Absolutely brilliant!

But don't write kids books, that would go right over their heads.

Nov-22-10  scormus: <LMAJ: Mate in four - if I can still count.> There are 3 types of chess player posting in this forum. Those who can count and those who cant.

  kevin86: The bishop acts as a swinging gate;it can keep out the bishop or rook,but not noth.

Queen sac-rook check-rook interposes-bishop mates. Easy,but more like a tuesday puzzle than a Monday. Does this mean a tough week ahead?

Nov-22-10  jackpawn: <Life Master AJ> Please don't take this personally, I'm just trying to understand. You took 30-60 seconds to find this? I'm a class below you and found it immediately. Is it that you're simply disciplined to always do your check list?

Btw, I've gone over many of your games. Unlike some others here I find them helpful. The average player here can often learn more seeing how masters take advantage of mistakes of class players, rather than going over a game between world class players.

Nov-22-10  BOSTER: <Stormbringer> <I would have gone with Bf3, for which white best response is to give up the Queen for the Rook and Bishop>. After 30...Bf3 white play 31.Qc3+ and take the Bishop then. Try your solution couple times and don't be disappointed. Believe me,any players have the same problems,even like<LMAJ> analyzed 30...Bf3.
Nov-22-10  Ghuzultyy: Start of the week, "very easy" puzzle. Lets go.

Black can force mate in four.
30...Qxg2+! 31.Rxg2 Rd1+ 32.Qe1 Rxe1+ 33.Rg1 Bf3#

Still, I should check the game maybe there is an easier way I couldn't see.

Qxg2 best move indeed. 1 point for today.

  Once: AylerKupp: "There are 10 types of people in this world. Those that understand binary and those that don't."

Very funny! That prompted a genuine laugh-out-loud moment - thank you.

  Once: <dzechiel: ... I think you missed an opportunity to trot out the old "mating positions" chess joke.>

Yes, but which one? The disappointed young man who bought a book entitled "200 French mating positions", only to find that it was about chess?

Or even ...

Q: ... "is this mating position legal?"

A: "No, it's Legall."

Or ...

Q: What do young knights hide under their beds?

A: Pawn magazines.

Or ... <once> a king, always a king, but <once> a knight is enough.

Or ... what kind of sex does Oedipus prefer? Mothered mates ....

  DarthStapler: Surprisingly I didn't get it, even though it's so obvious now. I picked Bf3 instead
Nov-22-10  Suji: <DarthStapler> Bf3 also wins. Just more slowly.
Nov-22-10  chesskidnate: <Suji> as others pointed out Bf3 Qc3+ followed by Qxc3 isn't good, whether or not that's winning black started with more material(and of course the mate) so Bf3 doesn't work.
Nov-22-10  knight knight: Queen to Knight: "I go in every direction you know..."

Knight to Queen: "I can't wait to jump on you..."

King to Knight: "Oi, I heard that! You're a real smothered forker sometimes!"

Queen to King: "Leave him alone, you're always one king, can you blame me?"

<Once> <dzechiel> Hope we still have accounts tomorrow! ;-)

  AylerKupp: <Once> Good, I’m glad that I could start to return the favor, but I’m still far behind and I doubt that I’ll ever catch up. That reminds me of a cute (and true story) which will hopefully have a similar effect:

Many years ago we asked one of our friend’s 5-year old daughter:

“Kelly, how old are you?”

“Five!” she said in a bright, happy voice.

“And how old is your friend Aaron?” we asked.

“Six!” she replied in an equally bright, happy voice. Then seriously: “Next year I’m going to be six, and Aaron is going to be seven.”

Suddenly, her face turned somber and she mumbled sadly:

“I’m never going to catch up, am I?”

Nov-22-10  estrick: <shishio71: The key to quite a few of these Mondays: When in doubt, sac the queen!>

Why be in doubt? Look for a queen sac first!

At first, I read this and I did not understand.

I thought about it for a little while ... and I laughed so hard that I fell out of my chair ... literally!!!

Nov-23-10  LIFE Master AJ: binary = ones and zero's or positives and negatives = on and off = oh, dangit! Nevermind!!!

Oh, crap ... now I am laughing so hard ... I might puke.

Jan-08-11  Lennonfan: Im new kibitzing on this site...(have i mentioned this once before?)....and i love analysing and guessing chessgames.com's daily puzzles,and seeing what the other kibitzers themselves have to contribute as most of you are so much more knowledgeable on chess than me,but the actual kibitzes by <LIFE Master AJ>are more entertaining for their amusement factor! Lol....quotes like"uh oh mr smarty pants!!" "i literally fell out of my chair laughing"(over a lame chess joke!!),"i laughed so hard i almost had an accident in my pants",and accusations of top top GM's cheating in games against him,amongst many other classics make me think that this man is either not for real....or not for real!! Keep up the humor life master AJ....this site needs you sir LOL
