Mar-11-07  goldfarbdj: Rxc2+ seemed obvious, but I was thinking Bf5+ from there. Now that I've seen the game, Qc4+ seems much stronger.
Mar-11-07  rookattack: i am a beginner.. can someone plz tell me how good are blacks 5...g6 and 6...Bg7?? i remember a puzzle game a couple of weeks back where blacks early g6 was refuted ,to a disastrous extent by f4

  jahhaj: <rookattack> In this position 5...g6 and 6...Bg7 are completely standard moves.
Mar-11-07  simsan: <rookattack> Those moves are quite common in the sicilian. And they are being played on the top level. For instance Magnus Carlsen held Svidler to a draw with these moves last week in Linares ( Svidler vs Carlsen, 2007 )
Mar-11-07  aazqua: bc3+ is certainly amusing.
Mar-11-07  goodevans: I guessed 19 ... Rxc2+ but thought the follow up would be 20 ... Ba4+.

Can't say I'm entirely convinced about today's puzzle. 22 ... Bc3+ is certainly a lovely move, but white seems to be playing into black's hands with 22 Qe2, cutting down the options for his kingĺs movement. Surely there was something better at this point?

Mar-11-07  Fisheremon: <Raskolnikov> I'd prefer 19.Rhe1 attacking pawn e7. The position should be evaluated as playable with equal chances and one shouldn't (and perhaps can't) give an exhaustive analysis. The sac 16...Rxc2!? had a psychological advantage that Black had a big practical chance with at least a draw in his hands. At the same time White had a heavy duty to prove its incorrectness.

White's choice 17.Bxc2 Qxa2 18.Qf2 seemed strongest, but 19.Kd2? losing (BTW Black should follow the mate line 24...f5!)

Here 19.Bxg7!? seems to be a saving move, e.g. 19...Bf5 20.Bd4 b3 21.Kd2 Rxc2+ 22.Ke3 Rxf2 23.Kxf2 Qa5 24.Bc3 etc.

Conclusion: White shouldn't accept a pawn 13.Bxa7?! that gave the initiative to Black. Instead 13.a3!? a5 14.Kb1 Bc6 15.h4 b4 16.axb4 axb4 17.Na2 with advantage.

Mar-11-07  percyblakeney: I actually got the first moves right, which is very unusual for a Sunday, but analysing other queen moves than 22. Qe2 seemed even more complicated, so I looked at the solution instead.
Mar-11-07  slomarko: Beata delivers a KO to this guy. Great stuff.
Mar-11-07  sambo: <goldfarbdj: Rxc2+ seemed obvious, but I was thinking Bf5+ from there. Now that I've seen the game, Qc4+ seems much stronger.> That's exactly what I thought. Bf5+ forces mate except for the rook interposing, but I thought there was some forcing line after that. Couldn't find it of course.

  playground player: Why do I even try the Sunday puzzle? Oh, well--when I started, I couldn't even do the Mondays, half the time (or more). Fortitudine vincimus.
Mar-11-07  builttospill: I did what percy did, but I didn't bother calculating what happens if 21 Bc3. Should black take with the pawn, or play Bf5+ first, where Kd2 I believe is ruled out for white -- not sure about the outcome of Kc1.
Mar-11-07  drukenknight: For everyone who got the correct solution: Call mental health provider immediately! You are having an hallucination. Fishermon gives one saving move but I believe there is one even later: 22 Qe1

(if you found the "solution") How does that line go?

Premium Chessgames Member
  jahhaj: <drukenknight> Fisheremon's 'saving' move occurs before the problem starts. Your saving move fails to 22...Qb3 with a -10 computer evaluation. Don't ask me what the winning line is but I tend to believe the computer.
Mar-11-07  nikolajewitsch: Well, the beginning is relatively easy to spot but, needless to say, I did not find the entire correct continuation. Still, I found it less depressing than other sunday's where one does not have any idea how to begin....this one is from this world at least.
Mar-11-07  get Reti: 19.Bxg7 is a very interesting line....
19...Ba4(that's jester's move) 20. b3!! Bxb3 21. Bb2!! is the proper defense. Pretty neat how the pawn sacrifices itself so it no longer occupies the b2 square so the bishop can come all the way back to interfere and prevent Qa1 at the same time. Can 19.Bxg7 19...b3 continue the attack?
Mar-11-07  Happypuppet: <syracrophy> Looking at the ratings, it looks like "Gamma Beata Alpha" instead though.
Mar-11-07  Fisheremon: <get Reti: Can 19.Bxg7 19...b3 continue the attack?> It's refuted by 20.Bc3. Ingeneral Black still has a resource f6, but also leading to equality.
Mar-11-07  Libar: 18 - B x B !!! and white wins! Everybody agree?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Marmot PFL: 18.BxB Qa1+ 19.Bb1 Rc8+ wins easily for black.
Mar-11-07  THE pawn: This whole game is absolutely amazing. Two rooks sacs at the same square.
Mar-11-07  Libar: Thank you, Marmot. I did`t remember more of my elementary lessons.
Mar-12-07  hitman84: Dragon at its best. Beautiful game.

  kevin86: Nice game-ending in good king chase.
Nov-29-10  elohah: 16...!

17 Qxc2 Bh6+ 18 Kb1 Bf5 19 Rd3 Rc8 20 Bc4 b3!! 21 Qxb3 ( 21 ab Ra8!) Rxc4! 22 Qxc4 Qd2 23 Ka1 Bxd3 24 Qc8+ Bf8 25 Rg1 Bf1! 26 Rxf1 Qxd4 27 Qb7 Qd2 28 a4 Qxg2 29 Rb1 plus for White. (a-pawn will win)

For this reason, Black must play 17...Rc8 18 Qxc8+ Bxc8 19 Bxg7 Kxg7 20 Rhe1 Kf8 (or 20...e5) with some chances in the Q vs. two rooks game that should still favor White.

28 Kh5 Qc8! 29 Qb5 Bg6+ 30 Kh6 Qf8 MATE.
