|May-04-08|| ||johnlspouge: <Terry McCracken>, out of curiosity, did you find an improvement to <MostlyAverageJoe>'s lines yesterday?|
|May-04-08|| ||vajeer: <rogermorin: After 41.qxe7+ rxe7
how does white win?>
right....I guess we have a draw by repeated checks in that case, or am i missing something too
|May-04-08|| ||baba1000: black could have easily drawn this game|
|May-04-08|| ||aazqua: I didn't think this was insane at all. In fact, I'd say it's pretty easy. Black has mate in one so white has to check. Q*n is fairly obvious. Clearly if the king takes the rook check comes next. The only real issue is deflecting the queen but this is pretty obvious too.|
45 kf8 seems a lot better than kh8.

I haven't a quad computer to offer 24 hour analysis to the problem.
I think 31. Ba4 to yesterdays puzzle is still somewhat better than Bd3.
It appears 31. Bd3 wasn't as bad as I first thought, but it's still my second choice.

I wanted to close out my analysis of yesterday's game. Thanks for the input.

|May-04-08|| ||wals: <aazqua> and Fritz 11 backs you as being 100% correct.|
|May-04-08|| ||MarioGolfMaster: Hey, I remember this game! Didn't Kazhgaleyev miss a forced mate earlier?|
|May-04-08|| ||234: Saturday puzzle <29. ?> May-03-08 G Kuzmin vs A Choudhary, 1984|
|May-04-08|| ||stacase: 41 Qxe7+ is the only real move white has. Except for 41 rh1 black's next move will be 41 Qh3++ So why does the puzzle start there? |
Oh well, I got the first move on a Sunday puzzle. (-:
I got most of the rest too.
|May-04-08|| ||openingspecialist: this was definately to easy for a sunday. but i think it took a while to solve. It's pretty easy combo play. I dont really like the line after Kf8 for white but id live with it.|
|May-05-08|| ||kevin86: This one is quite easy for a Sunday-mainly because much of the combination is forced with white being under the gun of a mate threat.|
An old chessbook I used to have has the correct title for a combination such as this: CHESSBOARD MAGIC.
|May-05-08|| ||kevin86: If black deviates from the text with 45...♔f8,white has 46 ♖xe8+ ♔xe8 47 c8=♕ ♔e7 48 ♕xf5... The mate threat is gone and white is ahead a piece for a pawn.|
|May-05-08|| ||patzer2: The Sunday May 4, 2008 puzzle is an amusing sequence of forced moves utilizing a variety of tactical themes ("combined operations"), which begins with the decoy Queen pseudo sacrifice 41. Qxe7+!! |
In the final position, what follows is 50...Kh6 51. Qh8+ , when White picks off the previously decoyed Black Queen (after 43. Rh1! Qxh1) with a skewer tactic.
Prior to this move, 42. Rd7+ forced the deflection 42...Kf8 in order to prepare the discovered check 45. Re8+ and the Queening move 49. c8=Q+!
|May-05-08|| ||patzer2: Because of the precarious nature of Black's King, about to be mated, the combination with 41. Qxe7+!! might also be categorized as a "desperado" or "defensive" combination.|
|May-06-08|| ||ramrock: someone help here. What am I missing?? After Qxe7+ why doesn't black play Rxe7, and after white's c8(q)+, black plays Kg7 ??? the best i can see for white here is a forced draw by perpetual check. How can white win? As an earlier kibitzer said ... "am i missing something?" Anyone?|
|May-06-08|| ||MostlyAverageJoe: <ramrock>
41. Qxe7+ Rxe7 42. c8=Q+ Kg7 43. Rh1 Qxh1 44. Qxf5

and black has an extra piece. Still, it would have been better than the line played in the game.
|May-06-08|| ||ramrock: <MostlyAverageJoe>|
thank you! when i looked at that before, somehow i thought black could perpetually check by 44. ... Qh3+ 45. Kf4 Qh2+ 46. Kg5 Qh6+ 47. Kf4 Qh2+ etc... but i missed the obvious fact that the King just takes the g4 pawn... duh...
|Jul-03-08|| ||Jedithious: Awesome puzzle! The queen sacrifice was obvious since it was the only move in which white wouldn't be mated by black.|
|Sep-17-08|| ||Xeroxx: <Awesome puzzle!>
But the game was mediocre??
|Feb-12-09|| ||WhiteRook48: nice exploiting|
|Dec-04-10|| ||sevenseaman: White seemed buried under a mountain; he gets to the top through its innards.|
|May-20-16|| ||Whitehat1963: Wow! What an amazing ending combination!|
|Jan-30-17|| ||Operador: The importance of being Ernesto!|
