|Oct-27-08|| ||Peligroso Patzer: What? A THREE-move combination on Monday ... and with the Queen sac not coming until the SECOND move from the given position?|
Could be a difficult week. ;-)
|Oct-27-08|| ||sleepyirv: <Peligroso Patzer> Indeed. Where's the tradition, cg.com?|
|Oct-27-08|| ||newzild: This is too easy even for a Monday.|
|Oct-27-08|| ||MenisfromVenis: I think 32: Qxg6 should have been the puzzle.|
|Oct-27-08|| ||MaxxLange: replacement killer|
|Oct-27-08|| ||chrisowen: Not a good date with a Dr? Emanuel Lasker plays 19.Kh1 courting events on the kingside. Inviting the exchange of the lsb he plucks up the white knight and questions the intentions of a misplaced black. 32..Nfxe5 looks like a desperate fling whereby it results in a nice arabian mate.|
|Oct-27-08|| ||gawain: Monday, Monday. Everything falls into place after the obvious move. Perfectly satisfactory.|
|Oct-27-08|| ||AccDrag: Ah, the good old days when players routinely closed the side of the board where they had a space advantage, only to then go down in flames.|
|Oct-27-08|| ||playground player: How does Nick Nolte get all these games against great chess players--and why does he bother? He never wins!|
|Oct-27-08|| ||kevin86: Lasker offers his queen to mate with an Arabian theme. Black refuses.|
Then white gives him an offer he can't refuse.
A three move mate-rare for a Monday puzzle-but it is simple enough.
|Oct-27-08|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: <Menis> I agree. Probably not a monday puzzle, tho.|
For mondays this call (33.?) was good.
|Oct-27-08|| ||YouRang: Obviously, with the knight on f6, the king on h8, and the rooks bearing down, we're looking for the old rook+knight (Arabian) mate, with a rook ending up at either h7 or g8. The only question is the right move order, since black does have a number of defenders.|
But we start by hitting the least defended spot: Rxh7 forcing Rxh7, and now g8 is attacked 3x and defended 2x, and the last attacker is a rook = Arabian mate.
|Oct-27-08|| ||patzer2: For today's easy Monday puzzle solution, it's mate-in-three after 33. Rxh7+!|
|Oct-27-08|| ||victory1: nn started out pretty good and hung in there well until move 29|
|Oct-27-08|| ||ruzon: I think 14...b5 would have attacked Lasker's pawn structure a lot more effectively than f6. But isn't NN supposed to play White in a simul?|
|Oct-27-08|| ||mjmorri: Move by move, you can just see Lasker's attack develop. With a better Bishop, better placed Knights, and a pawn lever or two, it was only a matter of time.|
|Oct-27-08|| ||Once: There are two ways to spot this one.
The "try it and see what happens" method - let's see what happens if we play the forcing 33. Rxh7+ ... and then we spot the arabian mate reloader on g8.
Or the more logical approach ... the f6 knight and the heavy white pieces suggest an arabian mate. If only I could deflect the g7 rook then I would be able to play Qg8+ followed by Rg8#. How can I deflect the rook? Aha ... 33. Rxh7+
And that is all she wrote.
