  gawain: I am thinking that the best move is NOT the game continuation. Perhaps 40 h6. If 40...Rxg5 41 h7 Black's rook cannot stop the passed pawn.

  gawain: Although this game was the one displayed at 12:06 a.m. apparently it is not the Tuesday puzzle.

  Appaz: This was in no way a "Medium/Easy" POD for me. Usually, when I can't solve a puzzle, I still immediately realize what is going on when seeing the first move. This one left me in the dark for several moves and even then I couldn't evaluate the position properly.
Apr-06-16  Dr. J: Dr. J: While I believe it is very possible that the game continuation might stand up to computer analysis, on the basis of "the bind White gets is more than worth the sacrificed Pawn", or something like that, there is NO WAY that this is "Medium/Easy", and mis-labelling it as such makes the hunt for the solution nearly impossible and very frustrating.

Another botched puzzle. Please, please, get your act together, <cg>.

  whiteshark: <King's Gambit: Accepted. MacDonnell Gambit>

This gambit has been introduced by Alexander McDonnell in McDonnell vs La Bourdonnais, 1834 so I'd guess it's more proper to call it

<McDonnell Gambit>

  Appaz: Ah, it was a mistake. At least I succeed in the real POD: Y Visser vs Speelman, 2006
