  Sularus: initially thought it's a semi-smothered theme. R-sac then h7 shamat

  Willber G: <pth: <offramp: 25. Ne9+ also wins.> It is countered by Kf9 :)>

LOL!

Jan-09-17  nalinw: In Xiangqi - aka Chinese Chess - it would already be mate if the Rook at g1 was a Cannon. Cannons move like Rooks but attack - and capture - only over one intervening piece (friend or foe).

It is a great game - triple and even quadruple checks are possible!

  beenthere240: It's funny - any attacks beginning with a discovered check end with white losing his queen.
Jan-09-17  LIzzard: Shame on me - it took me quite some time to stop trying to make the discoverd check work. Quite easy in the end if you're not distracted!
Jan-09-17  YetAnotherAmateur: <pth: <offramp: 25. Ne9+ also wins.> It is countered by Kf9>

I think white gets a winning line after

25. Ne9+ Kf9 26. Qh9+ Ke8 27. f7+ Kd9 28. Bg5+

Jan-09-17  scholes: <thegoodanarchist> Chessgames has actually declined a lot in recent years. Lost a lot of viewers to chessbomb and similar sites.
Jan-09-17  ColeTrane: Scholes is obviously privvy to inside info..... Though none of those sites are as user friendly or even as prolific as CG. Haters always mad about something ....
Jan-09-17  Cheapo by the Dozen: Took me twice as long as a normal Monday, since I looked for a smothered mate first. :)

  Lighthorse: I, like some of the others here, kept looking for a smothered mate after discovered checks. I even considered N-d5 threatening N-e7#. I kept wondering why it was a Monday puzzle when I didn't see the solution.

Then I noticed the rooks down at the bottom right. Duh--look at the whole board first before considering moves!!

Since we're giving consideration to Bizzaro chess...

Suppose that after <25.Rxg6+ hxg6 26.h7#>, black is permitted one "magical move", in which he can change the color of the attacking h7 pawn from white to black. That is, <26...h7W-h7B>

Luckily, white now has <27.Nh6+! Kh8 28.Qg8+! Rxg8 29.Nf7#>

"<Barken> Up The Wrong Tree" (game of the day May-01-04)>

Did cg.com misspell the pun?

Jan-09-17  DrGridlock: I love discovered checks!
Double-discovered checks are even better.

So ...
I can move the f7 knight and uncover the White queen attack on the black king. Can I move the f7 knight somewhere where it can attack also?

Search ... search ... bang head.

Problem ... the black knight on b6 can take White's queen in any discovered check which isn't a double-discovered check.

Eureka ... Moment of discovery!
The role of the White queen is not to deliver a check, but to keep the f7 knight "jammed" in black's face (the king cannot take it).

Black has a "stalemate king" so any checks are going to be lethal. Say, what are these rooks doing on g1 and on h1? Let's get them involved.

Rxg6+ hxg6
h7#

We're going to have to rename "Queen sac Monday" as "Pawn advance Monday."

Jan-09-17  stst: Monday R-sac! works quick:
25.Rxg6+ hxR
26.h7#

Also,
25.Nd8/d6 dis+ by Q will snatch Black's Q, Black is tortured.

  Benzol: <YouRang> <Did cg.com misspell the pun?>

No they didn't. It was me who submitted this game and IIRC the newspaper it appeared in had O Barken playing black.

:)

Jan-09-17  DrGridlock: <stst>

"Also,
25.Nd8/d6 dis+ by Q will snatch Black's Q, Black is tortured."

After:
25 Nd8+ Nxc4
26 Nxb7 Bxb7

Hasn't black just lost a knight?
Seems the "tortured" has become the "torturer."

Yes, they typically do. I am surprised how often it happens.

I would cite "Mate Me in St. Louis" but the pun was changed to recycle it for GOTD, so I cannot provide a link to the original GOTD title.

  Bubo bubo: A Q-N-battery with the knight on f7 smells like Philidor's legacy, but alas h6 is blocked - and there's also no square e9 ;-)

Hence we have to switch to plan B: 25.Rxg6+ hxg6 26.h7#

Jan-09-17  Sniffles: I think Blacks first wrong move, after getting out of bed, was 1... e5
