|Dec-25-08|| ||Ychromosome: 19.Ng5 hxg5 Qh5 mating, no way to defend h7|
|Sep-26-11|| ||lost in space: 26. Rxg7+ Kxg7
(26...Kh8 27. Qh6#)
27. Qh6# Kg8 28. Qh7#
I love Mondays!
|Sep-26-11|| ||estrick: White has all six of his pieces pointed at Black's king, plus a pawn on the sixth rank, directly opposing the Black king. The White queen gets to complete the mate, rather than lay down her life on this particular Monday, as the rook on f7 is the one that's elected for demolishing Black's defenses.|
|Sep-26-11|| ||M.Hassan: "Very Easy" White to play 26.?
Sides are equal
26.Rxg7+ Kxg7 <if...Kh8 27.Qxh6#>
Nice & Easy
|Sep-26-11|| ||rilkefan: Would have been easier as a Tuesday - I wasted some time on 26.Qxh6.|
|Sep-26-11|| ||An Englishman: Good Evening: White didn't even need to sacrifice a pawn to reach this position.|
|Sep-26-11|| ||dzechiel: White to move (26?). Material even. "Very Easy."
This is straightforward.
26 Rxg7+ Kxg7
On 26...Kh8 27 Qxh6# is mate.
27 Qxh6+ Kg8 28 Qh7#
A simple three mover.
I didn't post last night as we had a blitz tournament at my house. 17 players, great fun.
|Sep-26-11|| ||OhioChessFan: Bilabo Moves Prediction Contest will begin later today. Click on Elvis for details. |
As for the game, the theme is the undefended square. g7 is terminally weak and Rxg7 exposes that immediately.
|Sep-26-11|| ||goldfarbdj: I was in exactly the same boat as rilkefan. :-)|
|Sep-26-11|| ||OhioChessFan: <gold> I will admit to first looking at Qxh6 myself. Sort of the obligatory Queen sac on Monday.|
|Sep-26-11|| ||APatzer: Yes, Rxg7+.|
|Sep-26-11|| ||scormus: <rilkefan, Elvis, gold, ....> you all beat me to it!|
|Sep-26-11|| ||whiteshark: Proud part of the bandwagon effect today... :D|
|Sep-26-11|| ||mohannagappan: 26.Rxg7+ Kxg7 27.Qxh6+ Kg8 28. Qh7++|
|Sep-26-11|| ||morfishine: 26.Rxg7+ Kxg7 27.Qxh6+ Kg8 28.Qh7 mate
Took a little longer than usual for Monday
<OhioChessFan> Great to see you! Maybe you could work-up a song for Monday Puzzles using "Monday, Monday" by The Mamas and the Papas...Now that would be cool! :)
|Sep-26-11|| ||BishopofBlunder: Black did nothing to assuage the white pawn storm rolling up the King side. Instead, like the emperor Nero, he fiddled while his empire burned.|
|Sep-26-11|| ||gofer: <26 Rxg7+ Kxg7 (Kh8 Qxh6#) 27 Qxh6+ Kg8 28 Qh7#> Usual Monday stuff, but quite how black
got into this mess maybe a little more interesting... ...Time to check.|
|Sep-26-11|| ||Memethecat: <26Rxg7+> whatever the BK does <27Qxh6+> with <28Qh7#> too follow .|
|Sep-26-11|| ||al wazir: Why didn't black play 23...Nxf7 ? If 24. Nxd6, then 24...Bxf3+ 25. Kg1 Nxd6. If 24. gxf7+, then 24...Kh8 25. fxe8=Q Rxe8 26. Qe2 (26. Nxd6 Bxf3+ 27. Kg1 Bxd6) Bxe4+ 27. Qxe4 Qxd2. If 24. Qxf7+, then 24...Kh8 25. Bxh6 Qxd3 26. Qxb7 Qf3+ 27. Kg1 Qg4+, followed by 28...Qxg6, and black is up an exchange.|
|Sep-26-11|| ||Nilsson: Because White is a piece up,
24.gxf7+ Kh8 25.fxe8Q Rxe8 26.Bc2 Bxe4 27.Qxe4 Qxd2 28.Qh7+ mate.
|Sep-26-11|| ||stacase: So many possible moves for White to make, it took a while to find the correct one.|
|Sep-26-11|| ||Artsemthon: 26.Rxg7+ Kxg7 (26...Kh8 27.Qxh6#) 27.Qxh6+ Kg8 28.Qh7#.|
|Sep-26-11|| ||sevenseaman: A very clever POTD. Too many options confound the solver but not everyone will realise that the N on e4 is pinned. |
The most direct <26. Rxg7+> gives Black a lockjaw. A wise one will resign as soon as White extends his hand towards the R, even if to shoo away a fly.
|Sep-26-11|| ||Patriot: 26.Rxg7+ Kxg7 27.Qxh6+ Kg8 28.Qh7#
Very easy indeed.
|Sep-26-11|| ||zb2cr: A Rook sacrifice on Monday to begin the week, great fun! 27. Rxg7+, and mate in 2 more moves.|
