Feb-17-06  jmelton: Wow! This certainly belongs in the Sacrifice Explorer! White calmly offers up his queen in exchange for way too many open lines for his remaining pieces for Black to survive -- e.g., 21...exd3 22. Bxd3 Nf6 23. gxf6 Bxf6 24. Rxh7+ Kg8 25. Nxf6+

Mar-19-11  LIFE Master AJ: This has been my "site problem" for a year or two now.
Mar-20-11  LIFE Master AJ: The following is how I entered this into the computer when I wrote about this game:

<<Any Player - A.O. Player Site (monthly) Problem / Jan, 2009. Pensacola, FL (6), 07.1970 [A.J.G.]

An extraordinary combination.

I am sure I have seen this a few times before over the years ...

However, on December 20th, 2008 - while I was studying one Saturday with one of my students - I revisited this jewel, and I knew I had to add it to my collection.

This comes from the following contest:
GM V. Tumakov - GM O. Panno;
ICT, Masters
Buenos Aires, ARG; 07,1970.

21.e6!!, " "
and according to the book, "Play for Mate" by D. Hooper and also B. Cafferty, Black resigned here. (See page # 201.)

[The ChessBase database gives the score as "21.e6, h6; 22.gxh6, 1-0."]

Copyright (c) A.J. Goldsby, 2009. All rights reserved.

[White is winning in all lines: 21.e6!! exd3!?;
Black can only avoid mate by giving
away a ton of material, the machine
wants to play 21...Rf4 here.

(21...Bxe6; 22.Qc3!? Rf7; 23.g6 )

22.Bxd3 h6;
This actually shortens things quite
a bit, after 22...Rf5; Black will get
mated in around eight moves ...
according to the iron monster.

a.) D. Hooper and B. Cafftery also
give the following variation:
22...Nf6 ; 23.gxf6 Bxf6 ;
24.Rxh7+ Kg8 ; 25.Rgxg7+ Bxg7 ;
26.Rxg7+ Kh8 ; 27.Rh7+ Kg8 ;

b.) The box goes for the following continuation here: 22...Rf5 ; 23.Bxf5 Nf6 ;
24.gxf6 Bxf6 ; 25.Bxf6 Qg8 ;
(Or <25...gxf6? ; 26.Rxh7#) . 26.Rxg7 Qxg7 ; 27.Rxh7+ Kg8 ;
28.Rxg7+ Kf8 ; 29.e7+ Ke8 ;

Returning now to the main line of the solution ...
23.gxh6 Nxh6; 24.Rxh6+ Kg8; 25.Rxg7#] 1-0>

One person on this site claims that I lifted this problem from his facebook page. However, since this game is found in several books, and since my FB account is less than 2 years old, all this must be false.

Dec-10-12  aragorn69: Tulmakov says this move (21.e6!!) is his favorite in his hole career! Understandably!
