Oct-11-05  mrvocab: What the heck is the Nyezhmetdinov-Rossolimo Attack? 3.Bb5?
Oct-11-05  rya: under 3 seconds
Oct-11-05  dasp3edd3m0n: Faaaast and easy puzzle. Still a nice and instructional combo though =).
Oct-11-05  rufolate: Nice and easy!!!
Oct-11-05  trumbull0042: In my opinion, 600 times easier than yesterday's.
Oct-11-05  blingice: omg> so easy> omg! omg!
Oct-11-05  snowie1: Surprise! I thought_38.Qxd7..Rxd7 and
39.Ne6 forking. And black almost had a perpetual...almost. But Kg3 and white wins with the tempo.
Oct-11-05  prinsallan: Easy, but still a nice touch.

  WannaBe: Saw the Qxb. and then expected RxQ then knight fork to win the Q back. Then have R+N v. R ending... Does that count? =)
Oct-11-05  cuendillar: 3.Bb5 g6 it is. Just click the ECO code beside the opening's name.

  dakgootje: only calculated 36. Qxd7 Rxd7 37. Ne6 but i did expect black to resign after Qxd7...but i think my, and the one of many others, will count too...

  Richard Taylor: I saw this once I realised there was possible knight fork - Murray Chandler -who is from NZ is good GM-but didn't do my country any favours here! But an easy error - I actually think Chandler wrote a book or books about openings with Bb5 which generally signals the Rossolimo. Which is a bit ironic but these things happen...

  Richard Taylor: <WannaBe: Saw the Qxb. and then expected RxQ then knight fork to win the Q back. Then have R+N v. R ending... Does that count? =)> yes -it isn't a competition! You did well but you need to look at every possible defence and the only one I could see was Q:c3 as happened -but you did well to see the tactical idea - which is a good idea - these 'easy' combos are probably most useful to players like myself (club level duffers)

  Hoozits: Typical of myself, I might have actually seen 38. Qxd7 in a tournament game, got excited, played it with little thought; and then, my opponent would likely find 38...,Qxc3 and I'd pause to panic for awhile before noticing that the combination still did indeed work. How does one in just such a situation throw off the urge to move, bridle their emotions, sit and calculate, and then and only then, make the correct move? I tell you, sometimes my emotions betray me.
Oct-11-05  EmperorAtahualpa: I was first thinking: "Huh? Where is the mate?" Only then I saw the obvious move. :)
Oct-11-05  Idedalus: <Hoozits> I've had a similar problem lately. I'll find what seems to be a nice, simple, tactical shot but there will be an annoying defensive reply that I've overlooked. One thing that has worked for me is just to say "So what?" anytime I think I'm being clever and do my best to refute my own combinations. Once this becomes a habit you avoid those brilliant blunders and play some beautifully sound combinations.
Oct-11-05  zb2cr: Saw the idea and that after 38. ... Qxc3; 39. Ne6+, if 39. ... Kh6 White will still be up a piece; if 39. ... Kg8; 40. Qe8+ and mate next move.

I think 42. g3 also works to avoid the perpetual.

  chessic eric: With 37...,Rf8 black seems to be asking for the sacrifice and fork.

if 42...,Qxe4 then mate follows:
43.Qg7+,Kh5
44.Qxh7+,Kg4
45.Qh3#

if 42...,Qh5+ then 43.Kg3! wins (Kg1 allows play to go on much longer).

  YouRang: Nice and easy today (even more so than yesterday's). A nice removal of guard/decoy/knight fork. The play that followed was interesting, ending with the clever 42. f4! to shut things down as <chessic eric> explained.

  kevin86: The solution at first looks easy,but Qxc3 seems like an escape-however white soon weathers the storm and will win after: 42...Qh3+ 43 Kg3 black is out of checks and white threatens mate.
Oct-11-05  c o r e: Looked at the puzzle today and had to check my calendar- is it monday again? Oh and <Idealus>, one of my buddies who got me started playing chess again says that all the time. After nearly every move in a blitz game, he says either 'Do something!' or, should I do something, 'So what, man?'. This is only endearing because he is from eastern europe and has such a great accent to cuss in.
Oct-11-05  Mate Hunter: This looked like a Monday's problem and yesterday's looked like a Tuesday's problem.
Oct-11-05  sharpnova: <mrvocab: What the heck is the Nyezhmetdinov-Rossolimo Attack? 3.Bb5?> well obviously you know so why are you asking?
