|Feb-05-10|| ||Bare Beginner: Wow! Very nice game. I don't usually enjoy Sicilians (which are generally beyond my comprehension), but this one was exciting.|
|Feb-05-10|| ||think: What's white's plan after 40. ... Rxh7 41. Qxh7 c2?|
|Feb-05-10|| ||mano95: 42 Qg7+ Ke8 43 Qg8+ Kd7 44 Qd5+ and so on....It is easy to capture the pawn/bishop/rook while checking|

|Feb-05-10|| ||Gogia: This is a beautiful game by Bartel|
|Feb-05-10|| ||piratadeltablero: good match|
|Feb-05-10|| ||Domdaniel: 38.Qf5! is a killer. Black's last hope of counterplay -- ...Ra6 to gang up on the pinned Bf6 and White's vulnerable f-file -- is snuffed out with the threat of Qc8+. While also covering h7 to usher the h-pawn through. Deadly.|
|Feb-05-10|| ||kevin86: The rook goes, as does the game.|

|Feb-05-10|| ||sfm: Did Black simply overlook 33.Rxg7+ ? Why not 32.-,Kf8 instead of 32.-,a5 ?|
|Feb-16-12|| ||Whitehat1963: Tuesday puzzle after 32...a5.|
|Apr-03-12|| ||VincentL: "Easy".
I see 33. Rxg7+ Rxg7 34. Nh6+ winning Q + P for R + N. Or 33....Qxg7 34. Nxg7 Rxg7 with a
If 33.....Kf8/Kh8 34. Rxf7/Rxf7+ Rxf7 again with a similar material gain.
However in the game position black has R for N + P, so after the exchanges white has Q + 2P
for 2R - hardly decisive.
I cannot see anything else.
I am sure I am blind today - let´s see what happened in the game.
|Apr-03-12|| ||VincentL: Bit surprised to be first poster up after some 40 minutes. Perhaps others are also looking for something better.|
|Apr-03-12|| ||gawain: It must be 33 Rxg7+ Rxg7 34 Nh6+ forking the K and Q.|
|Apr-03-12|| ||dzechiel: White to move (33?). White has knight and pawn for a rook. "Easy."|
Right away I see...
33 Rxg7+ Rxg7
On 33...Qxg7 34 Nxg7. On any king move (?) 34 Rxf7.
34 Nh6+ Kf8 35 Nxf7 Rxf7
White gets queen and pawn for rook and knight. 10 points for 8. Probably the right idea. Time to check.
|Apr-03-12|| ||waustad: Yes. Just as I thought.
I see we have Sir Gawain here, but where has <greenknight> gone? I haven't seen him(?) in a while.
|Apr-03-12|| ||TheBish: M Bartel vs Krasenkow, 2010|
White to play (33.?) "Easy"
White wins the queen with 33. Rxg7+! Rxg7 (or 33...Qxg7 34. Nxg7 Rxg7 35. Bxf6) 34. Nh6+ Kf8 35. Nxf7 Rxf7 36. Bxf6, when the h-pawn will be very dangerous. I'm sure that's it, time to see the game.
|Apr-03-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: Cool. A Bartel puzzle.
<33. Rxg7+ Rxg7>
(33...Qxg7 34. Nxg7 )
<34. Nh6+ Kf8>
[34...Kh8 35. Nxf7 Rxf7 36. Bxf6+ Kg8 37. g4 with the idea of protecting the B with g5; 34...Kh7 35. Qf5+ Kg8 36. Bxf6 ]
<35. Nxf7 Rxf7>
(35...Kxf7 36. Bxf6 )
<36. g4> (yet very close to ) as White is up one in the force count, has 7 pawns against Black's 5, a strong and protected h-pawn, decent pathways for his Q and an excellent B on h4.
|Apr-03-12|| ||Dr. J: After 37 h6 |
click for larger view
If now 37...Ra6, then 38 h7 Rxh7 39 Qf5 seems to be decisive.
|Apr-03-12|| ||LoveThatJoker: I see that Bartel went for the complications involved after 36. Bxf6.|
I went for the Karpovian 36. g4 which Stockfish says is outright winning by (+5.09).
White's position is so strong that there is no urgency in getting involved with the immediate complications ensuing after 36. Bxf6.
Full point for today.
|Apr-03-12|| ||scormus: The toughest of Tuesday puzzles! Easy to see that 33 Rxg7+ sets up the royal fork but IMO it's necessary to see the follow on play to reach the 1-0 position.|
|Apr-03-12|| ||M.Hassan: "Easy" White to play 33.?
White is down by a Rook for a Knight.
I first went through line:
and Queen is forked and is lost. This line works "half way" i.e. if 33.h6 is replied by...g6, no such forking can happen and white Knight will no longer dare to land on h6 because he will be taken by Black Rook.
The only best line will be to eliminate g7 pawn by:
33.Rxg7+ Rxg7 (obviously not...Qxg7?)
And now White Knighe will eliminate Black Queen.
This must be it
|Apr-03-12|| ||arenafootball9: Is Rg6 as strong?|
