  YouRang: A little easier than usual, even for a Monday. :-)
Jan-15-07  alphee: Well, easy with a nice Queen sac and a "mat du couloir" as the french call it but refeshing after a full day locked in a meeting room!
Jan-15-07  Selangor: Like a chess puzzle....White to move and mate in 2.(Starting from position after 24....Kc8)
Jan-15-07  chessdummy123: To easy, got it in 3 seconds
Jan-15-07  uuft: Used to take me about one yottasecond to solve these. Today we're talking 'bout half a yoctosecond... Now that's what I call progress! %/

  kevin86: Monday puzzles often employ a queen sac or a simple mating procedure. Here,we have a simple back row mate in two started by a queen sac.

  playground player: When a puzzle is this easy, it makes me wonder if there's a nasty surprise waiting for me if I make the obvious move--and it makes me think twice before I make it. I hate to think how many games I've lost by making obvious moves that turned out to be disasters.
Jan-15-07  TrueBlue: based on the puzzle, it must be the day before Monday (Way too easy for a Monday).
Jan-15-07  TrueBlue: this could have been an EASY puzle even after move 20!
Jan-15-07  Kaspablanca: Demasiado facil.

  dzechiel: Easy, even for the beginner. A simple back rank mate. Bring on Friday!
Jan-16-07  Mendrys: Of course the puzzle was easy, It is Monday after all. About the game. I really enjoyed this game. Lots of good tactical shots by white to expose the black king. This being said I don't think white's position is all that dominating after 19. Rxh3. The king is exposed somewhat but white does not have any direct threats. For what it's worth Crafty suggests 19...Kg7 and I agree. Blacks rooks are connected and he has a nicely centralized queen. Does anyone have a suggestion as to how white can continue his attack after 19..Kg7?
Mar-02-08  wolfmaster: Easy but good Monday puzzle:)
Mar-01-15  OMH: The game was published in Schachzeitung in Nov. 1847 (Vol. 2, p. 365) with a different ending: 24... Kc6 25 Qc4+ and Black resigned.
Apr-26-18  Jean Defuse: ...

This game was played in Berlin on the 21th of Feb. 1838.
