|Oct-26-15|| ||gawain: I was thinking it was White to move, which was silly. With Black to move it is a Very Monday mate in two, 28... Qa2+. 29 Rxa2 Rb1#|
|Oct-26-15|| ||Sularus: queen sac, then rook mates.
gotta love moral booster mondays :)
|Oct-26-15|| ||Tiggler: <sergeidave: <Hector Muloy: I think that 19)Qxb5 was not a good idea. What do you think?>
Are there any other alternatives? I think at that point White is under considerable trouble already. :)>|
I think 19 Qxb5 was OK and white's big problems did not start until 21. Ka2? After 21. Ka1, Houdini thinks that white is no worse.
|Oct-26-15|| ||Sularus: <fetonzio: lol vlad to the bone, awful>|
they used it :D
|Oct-26-15|| ||patzer2: Psst! Hey you Rook! Yes you on b2, blocking my Rook's access to b1. Get away from there and come here now ( 28...Qa2+ 29. Rxa2 Rb1#). |
Now there's a combined decoy and deflection combination, solving our Monday puzzle.
|Oct-26-15|| ||lost in space: I love Mondays!
28...Qa2+ 29. Rxa2 Rb1#
|Oct-26-15|| ||stst: Q-sac Monday:
29.RxQ Rb1# supported by N@c3
|Oct-26-15|| ||morfishine: <28...Qa2+> ends it|
|Oct-26-15|| ||patzer2: Deep Fritz 14 indicates White made a mistake with 21 Ka2?, allowing 21...Rfb8 (-1.02 @ 20 depth). |
Instead 21. Ka1 c4 22. Rc1 N7b6 23. Qa6 Nc7 24. Qa5 Ncd5 25. Ne5 = (+0.02 @ 24 depth) keeps it level.
|Oct-26-15|| ||agb2002: I already knew this game...|
|Oct-26-15|| ||whiteshark: Yeeehaaah!!!|
|Oct-26-15|| ||TheFocus: Very nice. The Black Knight does double-duty!|
|Oct-26-15|| ||gofer: I only saw <28 ... Qa2+ 19 Rxa2 Rb1#> after seeing that this is a Monday and the queen sacrifice is what we should be looking for and after looking at an alternative, which looks strong <28 ... Rxb2>, but it comes unstuck very quickly! |
<28 ... Rxb2 29 Kxb2 Na4+ 30 Kc1 Nxc5 31 Nxe6 Nxe6>

I think that perhaps black can hold white to a draw, but probably not, and certainly this is not Monday
|Oct-26-15|| ||CHESSTTCAMPS: Black is down bishop plus pawn, but has a quick forced mate: 28... Qh2+ 29.Rxh2 Rb1#. One of the first pattern checkmates that I like to show beginners is this simple, elegant checkmate, the Arabian|
|Oct-26-15|| ||Cheapo by the Dozen: It feels like we've seen this one before.
Presumably, there are a bunch of similar ones ...
|Oct-26-15|| ||kevin86: An Arabian queen sacrifice is followed by an Arabian Mate. Great Monday puzzle!|
|Oct-26-15|| ||BOSTER: < teddyo: these machines just have no class>. |
No, they have.
After 27... Rxb2 the only move vs mate is 28.Qc8, and white game is lost.
It means that 27...was the beginning of the puzzle.
|Oct-26-15|| ||thegoodanarchist: < Penguincw: ... I believe it's called Arabian Mate>|
After 9/11, Republicans in Congress tried to change it to "Freedom Mate"
|Oct-26-15|| ||PJs Studio: As Boris is busted I'm not surprised he didn't play the necessary 27.Bxc3. - Definitely so if this was a rapid game. But nothing works anyway.|
|Oct-26-15|| ||starry2013: Back to a more normal queen sac checkmate Monday.|
|Oct-26-15|| ||weary willy: <Dec-10-04 who: This would make a good puzzle. 26... black to play and win.> Stick around, kid ... let the idea mature|
|Oct-26-15|| ||sfm: En extraordinarily pretty ending.|
