|Aug-09-10|| ||Alphastar: <notyetagm> I'm still waiting for you to place some diagrams about how black <REMOVES THE GUARD> after <43. Rd6-c6??>.|
|Aug-09-10|| ||SpoiltVictorianChild: kinda boring for a monday... saw it right away but then spent a few minutes looking to see if there was something else.|
|Aug-09-10|| ||chrisowen: Bodacious Hector I'm not worthy rb4 and tedding returns. Rossetto stone the BC rows white is in denial. Fishing around Rc6 is the char on his game. Sticks the win i.e. achilles heel horse drops. Man you holding fast Palermo closed down rooks then blunders in. See ice robber bone of contention eureka Ra4-b4. The knight live rally it quickly get swop off.|
|Aug-09-10|| ||randomsac: yay for free knights. After all, capturing the knight leaves <both> rooks en prise.|
|Aug-09-10|| ||StevieB: Took me longer than it should, since I was looking for a mating combo. Really bugged me I couldn't find one, so I lower my expectations, and there it was! Gotta remember to do that.|
|Aug-09-10|| ||benveniste: I couldn't analyze this problem deeply enough to find the queen sac. Is it really only Monday?|
|Aug-09-10|| ||kevin86: Quite easy,black removes the rook's defender. White must lose a piece.|
The desperado attempt 45 ♖xe6? falls to ♖xb2+ and fxe6-picking up BOTH rooks.
|Aug-09-10|| ||Ferro: FÁCIL Rxb4|
|Aug-09-10|| ||mworld: <Once> its all about OPP :]|
|Aug-09-10|| ||ThatsTriflin: Got it, but it took many minutes. OTB, I really think I would have had it in a matter of seconds, but I was misled by my own high expectations. |
Kudos to cg.com for giving us a different kind of Monday puzzle.
|Aug-09-10|| ||ZUGZWANG67: Material is equal. The WK is relatively safe: the Rb2 does a good job protecting the 2nd rank and B lacks any follow up after either 1...h3+ or 1...Nf4+.|
But here we may have a classical case of an IDP, that is, an inadequately defended piece with the Rc6. Its attaccked as much as it's defended and the defender itself is attacked as much as it's defended. This must be it.
43...Rxb4 and now W can't take both BRs in one move. B wins a piece.
In a subséquent post I give my own definition of an IDP. I'm working on it.
|Aug-09-10|| ||scormus: <ThatsTriflin> My sentiments exactly. I saw it quickly but then spent some time looking for something better. |
One day youre over the moon after making a double piece sac that opens the door to #.
Next week your opponent blunders away a pawn in a nothing position and you grind it out for a points a win (or he resigns at the adjournment)
Its a bit like real chess. Come to think, real life :-\
|Aug-09-10|| ||MaczynskiPratten: 43 Rc6 is an "oops" moment for White. In a position that by then looks utterly dead drawn.|
|Aug-09-10|| ||Check It Out: 43...Rxb4 wins a piece. White probably resigned.|
|Aug-09-10|| ||TheBish: V Palermo vs H Rossetto, 1965|
Black to play (43...?) "Very Easy"
43...Rxb4! wins a piece. A funny variation where Black wins two rooks (!) goes 44. Rxe6?? Rxb2+ followed by taking the other rook.
|Aug-09-10|| ||Lil Swine: the opening is actually the nimzowich defence not the pirc|
|Aug-09-10|| ||Ferro: RESULT GAFE|
|Aug-09-10|| ||Ferro: GAFEEEEEEEE...|
|Aug-09-10|| ||mig55: I take a piece from you, and you cannot take a peace back without letting me taking another peace from you....|
|Aug-09-10|| ||wals: Very easy? Not for me. I didn't pick any of the following:-|

|Aug-09-10|| ||turbo231: got it it must be monday that's about the only day i get it i'm getting worse i think i'm being poisoned or losing my mind these headaches|
|Aug-09-10|| ||Patriot: 43...Rxb4 removes the guard on c6. This seemed a bit trickier for a Monday since my attention was diverted to the white king.|
<fyad reject> Keep practicing tactics. You might want to try "chesstempo.com", which is a really good tactics site in my opinion.
|Aug-09-10|| ||thegoodanarchist: <benveniste> Funny!|
|Aug-09-10|| ||WhiteRook48: 43...rxb4
ah... monday puzzles...
|Aug-09-10|| ||beenthere240: Without a queen to sac, I assumed it was Sunday and went back to bed.|
