  TheFocus: Arthur is a very nice man and a class act. I have exchanged a few e-mails with him.

Nice to see this as GOTD.

Aug-26-16  plumbst: Unusual position in the opening with several pieces hanging. However there seems to be any easy win with 9.Qxc3!, threatening mate.

After 9...Nc6 10.Qxh8 Qxh1 11.Bh6 Kd8 12.Qxf8+ Kc7 13.Nf3 White is up a piece.

Aug-26-16  plumbst: Didn't see 10...Nd4. Differing from the game line White can still win in the same way with 11.Rc1 Qxh1 12.Bh6 Ne6 13.Nf3! after which Black is helpless against the ideas of Ng5 or Kd2 followed by Bh3.

  YouRang: Friday 9.?

It seems that the black N just took our knight at c3, and white has choices of how to recapture.

(1) 9.bxc6, (2) 9.Bxc6, (3) 9.Qxc6, or even (4) 9.Qxh8

Of these the one that seems to cause most trouble for black is <9.Qxc6>, which gets the knight back, but also forks Rh8 and Bc8.

So, it seems pretty easy for a Friday (although I thought yesterday's puzzle was easy for a Thursday, because I overlooked a continuation).

  agb2002: White is one knight and one pawn down.

Black threatens Qxd4 and Qxh1.

White can recover the piece with tempo (c8 is defenseless) while keeping an eye on h8. This suggests 9.Qxc3:

A) 9... Qxa1 10.Qxc8#.

B) 9... Qc6 10.Qxh8 Qxh1 11.Bh6 d6 (11... d5 and 11... Kd8 doesn't seem to make much difference) 12.Qxf8+ Kd7 13.Nf3 ends up a piece ahead and traps the queen (O-O-O followed by Bh3).

C) 9... Na(c)6 10.Qxh8 as in B.

D) 9... f6 10.Qxc8+ Kf7 11.Nf3

D.1) 11... Bh6 12.Qxh8 Bxd2+ 13.Nxd2 (13.Kd1 Ba5+ and the black queen has a number of checks) 13... Qxh1 14.Nf3 as in B.

D.2) 11... Bg7 12.Qc2 + - [B vs P].

  patzer2: Fell for the bait and missed this Thursday puzzle by going for what I thought was the "obvious" with 9. Qxh8?!

I expected an easy win after 9. Qxh8? Qxh1 10. Bh6 (-5.42 @ 19 depth, Deep Fritz 15).

What I overlooked is Black can more than equalize after 9. Qxh8 with 9...Ne4! when play might continue 10. Bh6 Qa5+ 11. Kd1 Nxf2+ 12. Kc1 Qc5+ 13. Kd2 Qb4+ 14. Kc2 e6 15. a3 Qe7 16. Bg2 Nxh1 17. Nh3 Nf2 18. Nxf2 d5 19. Ng4 Nd7 20. Rf1 b6 21. Qxh7 Ba6 (-0.51 @ 18 depth, Deep Fritz 15).

With the game move and puzzle solution 9. Qxc6! White creates the decisive dual threat 10. Qxc8# and 10. Qxh8 .

After 9. Qxc6! Nc6 10. Qxh8, Black cannot equalize by taking the White Rook with 10...Qxh1 as the first player wins a piece and the game after 11. Bh6 Kd8 12. Qxf8+ Kc7 13. Nf3 (+6.53 @ 19 depth, Deep Fritz 15).

Black falls behind early in this game by initiating a premature attack with 6. Ne4?! Instead, Black should focus on development in the opening with 6...Bg7 = (0.00 @ 29 depth, Komodo 9.42).

  gofer: Nice easy <Friday>...

<9 Qxc3 ...>

White regains its lost piece without losing tempo. White threatens Qxc8#, so black must waste a move defending that threat and that is the end of black's chances in this game.

<9 ... Nc6>
<10 Qxh8 ...>

Black is now down a full rook and the rook that is on offer on h1 is going to result in a loss as the black queen will be trapped after Nf3!

10 ... Qxh1
11 Bf8 Kd8 (d6 12 Qxf8+ Kd7 is worse as it allows Bh3+ at some point)

12 Qxf8+ Kc7
13 O-O-O

Not sure what black will try instead of 10 ... Qh1, so I am going to have to look...

~~~

Yep, black is sunk. The lure of Qxh1 is too much for black and after trapping the queen white's pieces can run amok!

Aug-26-16  7he5haman: Note that after 10...Nd4, 11.Bh6 would lose instantly to 11...Nc2#! :-)
Aug-26-16  wooden nickel: <offramp: Suffern Succotash!!> Right phrase to a firework of sidelines so early in the game!
Aug-26-16  scormus: 13 Qxa7 :D
Aug-26-16  FrogC: Very pretty. I missed the clever defence 10...Nd4, threatening mate and preparing to guard the pinned bishop by Ne6. But White had seen further.

  patzer2: Correction: With the game move and puzzle solution 9. Qxc3! <not 9. Qxc6>, White creates the decisive dual threats 10. Qxc8# and 10. Qxh8 .

After 9. Qxc3! <not 9. Qxc6> 9...Nc6 10. Qxh8 , Black is lost and cannot equalize by taking the Rook with 10...Qxh1

  kevin86: How about this! A rook is trapped by a queen facing him right in the face!!
Aug-26-16  Patriot: After 9.Qxh8, I wondered how long the queen would stay bottled up after 9...Qxd2+ 10.Kxd2 Ne4+ and 11...Nf6?

I went with 9.Qxc3 with two threats to make things tougher for black.

Aug-26-16
Premium Chessgames Member
  YouRang: I guess the main wrinkle in this line (after <9.Qxc3>) is that black can protect Bc8 (e.g. <9...Nc6>), allowing the exchange of rooks: <10.Qxh8 Qxh1>


click for larger view

But then white has at least a couple strong replies:

[1] <11.Bh6!> threatening Qxf8#.

[2] <11.Nf3!> trapping the queen (threat O-O-O and Bh3).

  steinitzfan: If I could reliably work puzzles at this level I would be happy. You can forget the weekends.
Aug-27-16  Moszkowski012273: 8.b4 is quite a bit stronger. 8...Rg8 and its pretty equal.
