Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-06-05  soberknight: The Instructor defeats Attila the stunned.
Mar-06-05  Helloween: Or 25.Kf3 Qd4 26.Re4 Qf6+ 27.Ke2 Qxb2+ 28.Ke1 Qc3+ 29.Kd1 Rd8
Mar-06-05  MacKinnon451: This was a hard one. I thought about Rxh4 but just didn't see the whole continuation after Rg8+.

  NakoSonorense: i saw 27. ...Ne2 That also works, right?
Mar-06-05  The beginner: Nakosonorense

27 ..Ne2 ??

White can play 28 Qxd4

Mar-06-05  Captain Scarlet: my instinct was to play 24.... Qd4 which is, in fact, a better move than Rg8+
Mar-06-05  your brilliance: Why not 26. Rg1. It seems like that holds.
Mar-06-05  darook: <your brilliance> I think that after 26.♖g1 Black soon chackmates with 26...♘f4+ 27.♔h2 27.♕xf2+ and mate the next move.
Mar-06-05  euripides: Dvoretsky wrote some columns recently about some of Lilienthal's games, where one poorly placed piece ruins the position. Here White's knight is the problem, as it drags the queen with it.
Mar-06-05  euripides: <MacKinnon> Welcome to the site. Audentes fortuna iuvat !

  patzer2: The solution to today's Sunday puzzle is the brilliant 23...Rxh4!, initiating a quick and decisive pursuit (King hunt) combination. White's significant alternative is 25. Kf3, but Black still wins (see <Helloween>'s post).
Mar-06-05  Capafan9: <your brilliance> if 26..Rg1 then Nf4+ Kh2 Qf6 and if Rxg8 then Qxh4+ Kg1 Nh3+

1)Kh1 Ng5+ Kg1 (Kg2 is same) Qg4+ Kf1 (Kh1 Qh3+ Kg1 Nf3 mate) Qh3+ Ke2 (otherwise Nf3 mate) Qd3 mate

2)Kh2 Ng5+ Kg1 (if Kg2 also mate quickly) Qg4+ and it becomes the same as the last line.

But Rg1 would have put up more of a fight for sure.

Mar-06-05  dfelix: Does 24...Qd4 also work? I can't see why it wouldn't. But, then again, what I can't see could fill a warehouse.
Mar-06-05  pawnwolf: Auribus teneo lupum!
Mar-06-05  darook: <dfelix> I think 24...♕d4 works great! (even better than 24...♖g8+). The only thing about it, is that its less a 'forced variation', and Dvoretzky's style (as I see it) is inclined to playing more forced lines, but its a matter of personal taste I guess.
Mar-06-05  jsemmens: The problem starts much earlier than the last 5 moves. White's Queen and Knight are seperated from its Rooks. While black's pieces are all focused on the king.

  kevin86: Boy,white's game collapsed in a hurry! White's major pieces are lined up along the first row-totally helpless to aid the poor king.
Mar-06-05  your brilliance: Thanks <capafan9> & <darook>. I think <darook> is right. 26 Rg1, Nf4+, 27 Kh2, Qxf2+, and if 28 Rg2, Qxg2++, or if 28 Kh1, Qxh4++.
