|May-25-15|| ||Cheapo by the Dozen: Subtle as Mondays go.|
|May-25-15|| ||dfcx: There is no mate combination. Maybe it is a Monday puzzle without sacrifice?
16.g5! blocks the escape route for black queen, and Rh1 next captures the royal highness.|
|May-25-15|| ||patzer2: Obviously 14...Qxh4?? allowing 15. g5! (solving today's Monday puzzle) was a losing move. |
The improvement I meant to post in 2004 is 14...f5 when play might go 14... f5 15. g5 f4 16. Bc1 Ne7 (+ 0.35 @ 22 depth, Deep Fritz 14).
Earlier in the opening I prefer the more popular move 6...c6 as in D Naroditsky vs K Spraggett, 2015.
|May-25-15|| ||agb2002: White has the bishop pair for a bishop, a knight and a pawn.|
The black queen only has three squares on the diagonal d8-h4 to move to. Hence, 15.g5 followed by Rh1 wins.
|May-25-15|| ||morfishine: <15.g5> and Black's Queen is trapped being unable to prevent 16.Rh1|
|May-25-15|| ||consul: Yes, it is a queen sacrifice. Well, as Tartakower said, it's always better to sacrifice your opponent's pieces. :-)|
|May-25-15|| ||Oxspawn: Started the week as I intend to go on - missing it. Confidently went after the King and having sacrificed my rook and about to sacrifice my queen thought ...wait a minute, this is not working. Excellent puzzle for a Monday.|
|May-25-15|| ||mqhelisi: Free things at this level are very rare I wonder why he/she didn't smell a rat and the dangers are always obvious like taking a b2/b7 pawn usually has to be done with all-round calculation|
Got it though, though for white was a nice move
|May-25-15|| ||Abdel Irada: Apparently this is Opposites Day: a Monday where the solution is to sac the other guy's queen.|
<<>15. g5> and Black begins to sing, <Yes, we have no escape squares! We have no escape squares today!>
|May-25-15|| ||Once: Now that is fun. It's a real GOOT. Black has two moves to get out of the trap (one before Rh1 and one after). But that's not enough - he really needs three or more.|
|May-25-15|| ||Nick46: 14.... Qh4 was a booboo.|
|May-25-15|| ||Caissas Clown: It's Monday,but for the life of me,I just cannot find a winning line starting with 15.Qd4 :-).|
|May-25-15|| ||Penguincw: You call this a Monday? Look how many pieces are on the board.|
Anyway, I messed up, getting 15.Rh1 Qf6 16.Rxh7+ Kxh7 17.Qh1+ Bh6 18.g5. :(
|May-25-15|| ||whiteshark: <Black> You can request at any time the cancellation of the above <blocking services>, immediately and free of charge, by calling our Customer Care.|
|May-25-15|| ||PawnSac: it's interesting..
ya put a little bait on the hook and toss it out there, and you never know what you might catch!
|May-25-15|| ||gars: I very good Monday puzzle, sacrificing the other guy's Queen (<Abdel Irada> pointed it sharply) and believe me! I did not solve it.
Shame on me!|
|May-25-15|| ||PhilFeeley: Another reason to mistrust the Pirc. Where did black go wrong?|
|May-25-15|| ||Herma48852: Looked at 15. Rh1 first but got no where after following up with a rook sac on h7. Finally found 15. g5! trapping the queen. Nice change of pace from usual Monday queen sac.|
|May-25-15|| ||starry2013: At Monday/Tuesday level the obvious move would seem to be Rh1, except it doesn't work. Eventually I just tried the pawn advance as I could do it, turned out to force queen off and bishops get exchanged. Eventually I won from there, though took a while.|
|May-25-15|| ||BOSTER: <A.I.: the solution is to sac the other guy's gueen>.
This is not a sacrifice.
The sacr is the < voluntary > offer of material, acting of one's own free will.

|May-25-15|| ||starry2013: When you first look at this it does look like a checkmate problem as the king seems quite smothered.|
|May-25-15|| ||dgm1214: queens gone|
|May-26-15|| ||kevin86: The queen is sealed in a will be captured after Rh1!|
Win a queen as opposed to give a queen....Revolution Monday.
