|Oct-29-13|| ||MountainMatt: Nice one. 32. Bh6+ Nxh6 33. Qh8+ followed by 34. Rf6#.|
|Oct-29-13|| ||MountainMatt: Shucks|
|Oct-29-13|| ||bharat123: 32.Bh6+ Nxh6(if 32.. Kf7 33.Qg7#) 33.Qh8+ Nf8 34 Rf6#|
|Oct-29-13|| ||al wazir: 31. Qh8+ would have put black out of his misery sooner.|
|Oct-29-13|| ||stst: Brute force (RxR+) does no good.
IF (A).... Kf7, 33.Qg7# is real easy; BUT
IF (B).... NxB, 33.Qh8+ Kf7, 34.Qxh7+ Kf8
|Oct-29-13|| ||FSR: I had a little difficulty with this one for some reason. 32.Bh6+! Nxh6 (32...Kf7 33.Qg7#) 33.Qh8+ and 34.Rf6#.|
|Oct-29-13|| ||FSR: <al wazir: 31. Qh8+ would have put black out of his misery sooner.>|
True enough. Surprising that Janowski missed it.
|Oct-29-13|| ||stst: < 31. Qh8+ would have put black out of his misery sooner.>
True, not sure why Janowski moved the B in 31. He didn't see that? or he intentionally prepared for the move by the B in move 32? etc.|

Probably he had already decided on a plan that would win, and therefore simply was not looking for a better one. That would be my first guess.
|Oct-29-13|| ||M.Hassan: "Easy"
White to play 32.?
Equal in materials.
|Oct-29-13|| ||agb2002: White has the bishop pair for a bishop and a knight.|

Therefore, 32.Bh6+ Nxh6 (32... Kf7 33.Qg7#) 33.Qh8+ Ng8 (or 33... Kf7) 34.Rf6#.
|Oct-29-13|| ||diagonalley: "easy" it may have been, but it took me an inordinate amount of time to envisage the sequence to disable that pesky knight|
|Oct-29-13|| ||gofer: Nice and simple...
32 Bh6+ Nxh6 (Kf7 Qg7#)
33 Qh8+ Kf7 (Ng8 Rf6#)
|Oct-29-13|| ||Kikoman: <Puzzle of the Day>|
32. Bh6+! Nxh6 (32...Kf7 33. Qg7#) 33. Qg8+ Kf7/Ng8 34. Rf6# and that's it! :D
|Oct-29-13|| ||morfishine: Nice deflection <32.Bh6+>|
(1) 32...Nxh6 33.Qh8+ Kf7 34.Rf6#
(2) 32...Kf7 33.Qg7#
<FSR> I was thinking the same thing
|Oct-29-13|| ||zb2cr: Found this one quickly. I have nothing to add to the comments by <dick50>, <Bartimaeus>, <MountainMatt>, <bharat123>, <stst>, <FSR>, <M.Hassan>, <agb2002>, <gofer>, <Kikoman>, and <morfishine>.|
|Oct-29-13|| ||gawain: Nice puzzle. I had only one false start before finding the right road via Bh6+ abd Qh8+|
|Oct-29-13|| ||kevin86: Mate to come quickly-either by pin or by epaulette.|

|Oct-29-13|| ||LIzzard: This one took me much longer than it should have - a little relieved to see it seemed the same for a few others|
|Oct-29-13|| ||Penguincw: I was thinking of 32.Bxh6+ Nxh6 33.Qf6+.|
|Oct-29-13|| ||Patriot: I see a line but it's kind of tricky for a Tuesday.
32...Nxh6 33.Qh8+ Ng8 34.Rf6#
32...Nxh6 33.Qh8+ Kf7 34.Rf6#
|Oct-29-13|| ||Patriot: <agb2002> <Pattern recognition finds the mate scheme...Therefore...> If the pattern led you to the sequence, I'm impressed. I had to work out a sequence before visualizing the position as a win.|
|Oct-30-13|| ||patzer2: I saw 32. Bh6+! forces 32...Kf7 33. Qg8# or 32...Nxh6, which decoys the Knight to h6 and deflects it away from g8. |
After visualizing the forcing 32. Bh6+! Nxh6, it wasn't too difficult to find the unusual two-move mating pattern 33. Qh8+ followed by 33...Ng8 34. Rf6# (using the pin to protect the checking piece and force mate) or 33..Kf7 Rf6# (cutting off the King's escape squares with check and mate).
|Oct-31-13|| ||agb2002: <Patriot: <agb2002> <Pattern recognition finds the mate scheme...Therefore...> If the pattern led you to the sequence, I'm impressed. I had to work out a sequence before visualizing the position as a win.>|
You surely have already noticed that in competition chess you never have enough 'stored' patterns.
