  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#)
Aug-13-12  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!!!!!!
Aug-13-12  TheBish: "Pencil in a win."
Aug-02-19  ACMEKINGKRUSHER: Howdy,I haven't done this yet! I have a "Perfect/Obvious Name for this game... PENCIL"Erases Goltsoff's 0-0 Position" You can even use the word instead of the symbol for CASTLING! It just came to me with the Name of the WINNER and how FAST Goltsoff's position just CRUMBLED!!!! ACME KING KRUSHER!
Aug-02-19  ACMEKINGKRUSHER: Well,
