|Jan-30-07|| ||laskereshevsky: DEAR FORUM-FRIEND <kellmano:>; why 17. fxg ?!|
17. Qh5 its letal....( after the inevitable: 18. Qxh6 there are TWO mate...in h7 and in g7....no defense)
|Jan-30-07|| ||WBP: Ancient bishop sac on h7; along with the bishop sac on f7, that has to be one of the most fundamental and frquently encountered motifs in attack/sac strategies.|
|Jan-30-07|| ||Fisheremon: <kellmano: 15. Qh5 h6 16. Qg4 g5 17. fxg5 (presumably) Ne5 (on it's way to g6 once the Queen moves|
Still game on as far as i can see.> 17.Qh5 and mate's inevitable.
|Jan-30-07|| ||Manequinho: This line is obvious, but I didn't see it. What I saw was:|
15. Bxh7+ Kxh7
16. Qh5+ Kg8
17. fxg7 Kxg5
18. Qg5+ Kh8
19. Rf3 Qxc3
20. Rxc3 (any)
But now I see that after 17. fxg7 f5 saves mate...
|Jan-30-07|| ||dakgootje: Actually went for 15. Bxh7 Kxh7 16. Qg4. More somewhat of a silent move, however, as far as I can see it works aswell|
|Jan-30-07|| ||beenthere240: 12....d5 was ill advised. IMO|
|Jan-30-07|| ||Fisheremon: <think: After 15. Qg4 g6 16. Qg5, can Black avoid being mated after Qh6 and Qg7?><epiglottis5: Bxh7+! allows the queen to get to h6 with a gain of tempo. I initially looked at 15.Qg4 g6 16.Qg5 but then black would play Qd8 and take the pawn if my queen moved to h6.> Solution for fun: 15. Qg4 g6 16. Qh4 Qd8 17. Rxb5 b6 18. c4 Nd4 19. Bb2 Bxb5 20. Bxd4 e5 21. fxe5 and mate soon either on g7 or h-file.|
Actually White passed a winning plan twice at 9th and 10th moves both with
|Jan-30-07|| ||Chicago Chess Man: Clearly, 17. Qg5 is the best move, but I probably would've played fxg7, thinking it would result in the same ending as the double bishop sack. Still, after 17 ..f5, g7xf8 is still an easy win for white|
|Jan-30-07|| ||YouRang: We have one of those positions where black's kingside looks pretty neglected. None of his pieces are on hand to help defensively.|
So, it just looked like the famous Bxh7+ sac was screaming to be played, with Qh5+ to follow. Once you've gotten that far, the mate at g7 is a sidestep away.
|Jan-30-07|| ||micartouse: Pretty straight forward stuff. The Bxh7+ and Qh5+ sort of jump out right away. |
Also, having a pawn on f6 should just jump right out and scream "Queen on the g-file!".
Finally, g5 is the preferred square since it threatens the typical Qg5 g6, Qh6 sequence. So this is all just basic patterns.
|Jan-30-07|| ||nimzo knight: oh this was easy man !!
I could have found this OTB in a rapid game.
|Jan-30-07|| ||kevin86: I picked this one up quickly:white,in fact white has two ways to go:|
FAST WAY:17...g6 18 ♕h6 and mate in inescapable.---or
SLOW WAY 17...g6 18 ♖f3 followed by ♖h3,♕h6,♕h8#}-black could slow this even further,but a quick mate is inevitable
|Jan-30-07|| ||WarmasterKron: Fairly easy, this. 15.Bxh7+ was the first thing I looked at and after that it was just a matter of making sure it wasn't a spoiler.|
|Jan-30-07|| ||fm avari viraf: Well, it's a standard B sac. on h7 where the Black King is defenseless.|
|Jan-30-07|| ||xombie: I love these creepy Queen moves. Though far from subtle, its still elegant. Try this:|
Petrosian vs Smyslov, 1961
|Jan-30-07|| ||Stonewaller2: Black today was A Fischer, not The Fischer ...|
|Jan-30-07|| ||vibes43: Easier for me to see than yesterday's puzzle. Maybe because I have not yet forgotten about pinning the pawn. I needed this reinforcement that I may never forget. Good puzzle.|
|Jan-30-07|| ||mstover: So, what move doesn't work in this position? That seems like a better puzzle for this game. I bet 15. Rxb5 wins too.|
|Jan-30-07|| ||Holmstrom: I thought of Qh5, which works too.|
|Jan-30-07|| ||dbquintillion: 13. ...a6 just looks like an awful move to me.|
|Jan-30-07|| ||Themofro: Simple puzzle, i thought this was a lot easier than Monday's, lol, still nice final position.|
|Jan-30-07|| ||Dr.Lecter: thought this was robert james until I looked at the year.|
|Jan-30-07|| ||Chess Classics: I wondered at first why this was so easy, since I thought it was Thursday.|
Then I realized it was Tuesday. D'oh!
|Jan-30-07|| ||cjhasbrouck: Another way-too-difficult-for-this-stage-in-the-week puzzle.|
|Jan-30-07|| ||BishopofBlunder: I got this one easily, 'cause I've lost several games like this. ;)|
