|Oct-19-05|| ||Saruman: Sneaky if 22.-Nf4 23.Qf3 delays mate with a few moves. So Qxg2+ is the best.|
|Oct-19-05|| ||snowie1: Love it when my puns get there!LOL <WannaBe>|
|Oct-19-05|| ||southeuro: took me 1.2 seconds
|Oct-19-05|| ||Norman Glaides: Very nice; I would have loved to play this in a real game, can you imagine how satisfying that would be?|
|Oct-19-05|| ||lopium: I've found Qh8. But I think it's the same.
|Oct-19-05|| ||Halldor: The double-check solves the problem. Excellent puzzle for mate in three.|
|Oct-19-05|| ||YouRang: <lopium: I've found Qh8. But I think it's the same. > Nope. After 24...Kxh8, then what? If you try 25. Nf5+, then the only piece giving check is the bishop, and it can be blocked with 25...f6. You need the double-check to make this work (see my earlier post).|
|Oct-19-05|| ||kevin86: The puzzle is a great mate in three!! This is somewhat like a diagonal version of Reti-Tartokower.|
|Oct-19-05|| ||notsodeepthought: Cool final position, but not that unusual - another example is at Alekhine vs Minos, 1945, which was also the subject of kibitzing today.|
|Oct-19-05|| ||psmith: <aginis> If 20. Qg3 is so strong, how does White win after 21... Qb8?|
<ahmadov> Maybe so, 21...Qb8 seems an improvement.
|Oct-19-05|| ||aginis: <psmith> 21...Qb8! 22.Qg4 g6 (i see no other reasonable defense against 23.Nxe6 ) 23.Re1 looks very strong for white, no spectacular win, but white is surely on the offensive.|
|Oct-19-05|| ||Boomie: Here are some attempts at improvement on 21...g6.
21...♕b8 22. f4 g6 23. ♕h4 ♕b6 24. ♖f2 f6 25. ♕h6 (0.49/13)
21...♕d7 22. ♘xb5 f6 23. ♘xa7 ♕xa7 24. ♕g4 ♕a6 (1.38/13)
21...e5 22. ♘f5 f6 23. d3 ♕d7 24. ♘h6+ ♔h8 25. dxc4 gxh6 26. f4 (1.57/13)
|Oct-19-05|| ||Boomie: <aginis> In your line how about 22...♘e5? |
21...♕b8 22. ♕g4 ♘e5 23. ♕e4 ♘d7
|Oct-19-05|| ||wals: On move 15 if Black plays c5-c4 instead of the text move the whole character of the game is changed, finishes up a knight against two pawns with an equal game.|
|Oct-19-05|| ||Willem Wallekers: Very easy for a wednesday.
Much easier then yesterday.
|Oct-19-05|| ||Fezzik: I love this stuff! The secret to the whole position is finding the right double check with the Knight. Once you find that, Qg7!! is indeed relatively easy to see. Of course, Black was a GM so it wasn't as easy as some suggest.|
|Oct-19-05|| ||BishopofBlunder: I think Black may have been better off not castling here. White has plenty of pressure on the Black kingside. It's like locking the King inside a burning building.|
|Oct-19-05|| ||alexandrovm: Qg7+ K takes queen and the deadly double check Nf5#...and is mate (unless I am blind). Nice one|
|Oct-19-05|| ||alexandrovm: <Willem Wallekers: Very easy for a wednesday.
Much easier then yesterday.> nice rhyme. You could actually write a song about it...|
|Oct-19-05|| ||sharpnova: happened to over look the en prise white queen.. but after i saw that. the solution was pretty simple to find|
|Oct-20-05|| ||Richard Taylor: Another example of combination type this is my game I posted recently on the Kibitzers Cafe - with a diagram.|
|Oct-20-05|| ||alexandrovm: <I posted recently on the Kibitzers Cafe - with a diagram.> now this is interesting to know, thanks...|
|Oct-21-05|| ||patzer2: The puzzle solution 24. Qg7+! sets up a winning double discovered check and mate.|
|Nov-03-08|| ||thebribri8: Probably the most beautiful mating attack I have ever seen.|
|Jul-05-17|| ||tpstar: A famous Double Check example leading to a minor piece mate.|
Black's dark squares on the Kingside were glaringly weak and beautifully exploited.
