  Phony Benoni: This may be the first time I've seen a game used as both a Monday and Saturday (twice!) puzzle. Of course, the Saturdays began earlier, at move 14.

  ChessHigherCat: This may be the first time that I've recognized the game the puzzle is based on.

<offramp: An iron maiden is a casket which containeth a large quantity of pins or pricks.>

An iron lad containeth but one, unless he be a mutant.

  patzer2: Easy enough for today's Monday puzzle is double check and mate with 21. Qxh7+ Kxh7 22. hxg6#.

Black's decisive error was 13...Re8? allowing 14. Bxg7! (+4.86 @ 27 depth, Stockfish 8.)

Instead, Black can hold with 13...Ne5 when play might continue 14.Bxe5 dxe5 15.Bxb5 Qb6 16.Bc4 Qxf2 17.Rhf1 Qc5 18.Bb3 Bb7 19.Rd3 a5 20.Rdf3 Ba6 21.Rh1 Bb7 22.Qg4 Rad8 23.h5 Kh8 24.h6 g6 25.Rhf1 Qd4 26.Kb1 Qd2 27.a3 Qxg5 28.Qxg5 Bxg5 29.Rxf7 Bxh6 30.Bxe6 = to (-044 @ 32 depth, Stockfish 8.)

  diagonalley: a rare double-checkmate ... nice :-)
Jul-31-17  saturn2: I had the solution at first thought but at a second thouhgt 21 hxN seems also winning 21...QxQ 22 RxQ fxg6 23 Rdh1
Jul-31-17  The Kings Domain: Sheesh, missed this one. I decided on 21) hxg6. Nice puzzle and good game, appealing kingside attack by white.

If the pun was supposed to be a joke on "Iron Man" then chessgames can do better.

  takchess: an appropriate level puzzle for a Monday. The queen sets up a double check and mate.

Jul-31-17  zb2cr: Easy Monday. 21. Qxh7+, Kxh7; 22. hxg6#. All forced.
Jul-31-17  Iwer Sonsch: 21.Qxh7+ Kxh7 22.hxg6+#. Double check and mate.

  kevin86: Queen sac Monday is back! Double-check and mate on second turn!
Jul-31-17  BOSTER: My Q is:Shoulld white play 12.Qh6 if black played 11...g6?
Jul-31-17  Nerwal: <Shoulld white play 12.Qh6 if black played 11...g6?>

No, it gets trapped immediately by ♖e8 and ♗f8.

Sometimes even when there is no way to win the queen it stays simply useless on h6 : Ivanchuk vs Kramnik, 1997

  gawain: Poor Black was probably feeling that he had found a clever way to survive, expecting 21 Qxf8 Nxf8. The queen sac at h7 was a nasty surprise.
