Mar-19-12  Memethecat: I don't envy whites choice of K exposed or castle into 2 semi-open files with Rs on them.

<viking78> I don't know if this is correct, I think if you wanted to you could reach this position after 98 or 100 moves, but that would be very difficult. The real puzzle is why white played this opening =)

1e4 c6
2Bc4 e6
3Bxe6 dxe6

Mar-19-12  viking78: <Memethecat> I don't think it's a real game lol. It is a created puzzle I think. You got the position, but in 3 moves, <solskytz> did it in 3 and a half moves, but the puzzle asked for 4 moves both from white and black.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Oxspawn: <viking78> Very nice. I was trying king moves and queen moves, but the options seemed to be to get to the position in 3 moves or 5 moves. To get the 4 moves, one has to understand that the pawn on c6 came from c7, and not by taking from d7. The brain often refuses to deliver up the most simple explanation - such as that white made three moves with the bishop, desperate to commit suicide but unable to find anyone to assist. An opening entirely without Dignitas!
Mar-19-12  uberpwnz: 1.e4 e6
2.Bb5 Ke7
3.Bd7 c6
4.Be8 Ke8

Piece of cake.

Mar-19-12  uberpwnz: Oh and btw, this puzzle was initially invented by Tal

Well thanks, I didn't knew who invented it I just found it on the net and shared it thinking it's something nice. And it's maybe piece of cake if you know it, but if the great Tal invented it I think he was able to create a puzzle which when first appeared gave some thinking to the solvers.

  Gilmoy: A Knight version of the <swinging gate>!
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: Still another version of the Reti-Tartokower theme-this time against a castled king,and without the double check-but with the knight guarding the base square.
Mar-19-12  sevenseaman: For today's main puzzle (Windmill) following correct solution was posted in my forum as requested by me to early solvers.

< Jedzz: For today's puzzle, black forces the rook back and forth. Not for a draw, but a win.

1. ... Qf1+ 2. Rg1 Qf3+ 3. Rg2 Qd1+ 4. Rg1 Qxd5+ 5. Rg2 Qd1+ 6. Rg2 Qf3+ 7. Rg2 Rd1#>

Nice work <Jedzz>.

Mar-19-12  BOSTER: <LTJ> <This is my 1,000th post>. Congratulation!

But how I remember you have written <Patiot> < I've been on this site since 2005. I have over 131,000 tries>.

In what kind of the brain do you calculate this?

Mar-19-12  LoveThatJoker: <BOSTER> Thanks for the congratulations! I appreciate it!

Regarding what I wrote to Patriot that was referring to and not

<In what kind of the brain do you calculate this?> Only yours.

You are still confusing what Patriot and I were talking about on Friday with something else: he even made it a point to tell you, directly, that the discussion was regarding another site and not!


Mar-19-12  master of defence: What happens after 20. Nxh5?
Mar-19-12  stst: How to avoid a Monday "Q-sac"?
Not this time, a Q-sac again:
21.Kxh2 (only way to delay) Nf6 dis+ &nix the White Q at the same time!!
Mar-19-12  LIFE Master AJ: 20...QxP/h2+; 21.KxQ▢; NxN/g3+; (discovered check, from the B♖ on h8) It looks like White gets mated on h1.

This took a little longer than the average Monday ...

Mar-19-12  MichaelJHuman: I found it interesting both of black's rooks contributed.
Premium Chessgames Member
  dzechiel: Black to move (20...?). White is up two pawns. "Very Easy."

Back from a short vacation. This is our typical Monday position, with the obligatory queen sacrifice.

Black winds it up with...

20...Qxh2+ 21 Kxh2 Nxg3+ 22 Kg1 Rh1#

Pretty combination. The ratings of the players look a little light for this database.

Mar-19-12  M.Hassan: <abuzic:In this line first 20.h3 Nf4 is winning for black> Quite agreed and you are right. I did'nt see it.

<and second in your line 23...Bxe6 gives black better position and probably winning endgame.>

but e6 is a Black pawn and black bishop can not take it. it appears that there is an error in here.

<White should have played instead of 19.Qe5, 19.Nxh5 or 19.Qxe4> Absolutely and thanks for your comments

Mar-19-12  Memethecat: <chrisowen> I do believe you are losing the plot. Was that a cognitive answer that slipped out? ☺

  WinKing: <Memethecat: <chrisowen> I do believe you are losing the plot. Was that a cognitive answer that slipped out?>

Don't be fooled <Memethecat>, <chrisowen> will tease us once in awhile. It still requires the savvy of a 'Windtalker' to consistently know what is really being said. ;)

Mar-19-12  1stboard: White walks right into it with 18 O-O , so castling for safety is not always the best.
