  agb2002: The material is equal.

Black threatens 13... Qxh5.

A mere pattern recognition exercise: 13.Qxh7+ Kxh7 14.Rh3+ Qh5 15.Rxh5#.

Aug-13-12  xthred: <once> Very funny ;)

  OhioChessFan: It's odd that Black played c6 and didn't follow up with d5. <xthred> you saw the point, had the win, and in practical terms would have carried it out to mate over the board.
Aug-13-12  zb2cr: The Queen sacrifice at h7 is the fastest way to bring home the point. 13. Qxh7+, Kxh7; 14. Rh3+, Qh5; 15. Rxh5#.
Aug-13-12  LoveThatJoker: <13. Qxh7+ Kxh7 14. Rh3+ Qh5 15. Rxh5#>

LTJ

Aug-13-12  Patriot: Given that the black king is in a stalemate position, 13.Qxh7+ Kxh7 14.Rh3+ Qh5 15.Rxh5#
Aug-13-12  LIFE Master AJ: 13.QxP/h7+, and then Rh3+. (mates)
Aug-13-12  master of defence: 13.Qxh7+ Kxh7 14.Rh3+ Qh5 15.Rxh5#. 12...h6 was much better than 12...Qe8.

  Sastre: 12...h6 loses to 13.Bxh6 d5 14.Bxg7+.
Aug-13-12  BadKnight: monday = queensac
Aug-13-12  Zatrikion: <Once> That was creative! Keep it going! ;)

Classic Monday Q sac with Rh3#. Nice one!

  gawain: Pencil? No pencil necessary for solving this puzzle. Did it in my head.

How the heck did Black get into this position?

  gawain: I see. It reminds me of a helpmate! What could Black have been thinking?
Aug-13-12  EXIDE: I think I have seen this exact type of ending before and recently. Cannot recall it though.

  kevin86: White mates in three:1 queen sac/black must take. 2 Rook checks/black must interpose the queen 3 Rook takes queen-mate.

The winner could have written the finale in INK.

Alas,this Pencil had to win because he couldn't draw.

Aug-13-12  tbentley: How to lose as white: 13. Qg6! Nxg6 (hxg6?? 14. Rh3#)

  Castleinthesky: Erased by Pencil!
Aug-13-12  dragon player: A new change this week, last week I gave up quite early.

13.Qxh7+ Kxh7
14.Rh3+ Qh5
15.Rxh5#

Time to check.

------------

Yes, right.

And a nice story by <Once>.

Aug-13-12  1stboard: Black's 3 Nd4 was the start of many error's in his play .....
Aug-13-12  mccarthpm: we have had this before!!!!!!
