Jan-05-19  The Kings Domain: The puzzle's a tough one for sure. Good game, nice attack by Ivanchuk.

  malt: Come up with
32...Rca5 33.N:a5 R:a5 34.Rh2 Qa2+ 35.Kc1 Qa1+ 36.Kd2 Q:b2 37.Rc1
Jan-05-19  Walter Glattke: 33.Rd2
Jan-05-19  goodevans: <31...Rca5> isn't hard to spot but as far as I can see it only yielded a win because white panicked with <32.Re3?>.

If white instead takes with <32.Nxa5 Rxa5> then black has a couple of threats, neither of which look that potent: <33...Qa2+ 34.Kc1 Qa1+ 35.Kd2 Qxb2> would let white in with <36.Qe6> whilst <33...b3 34.cxb3 Qd3+ 35.Rc2> seems no better than a draw.

White probably has other alternatives at move 32 to keep the game alive, just not the dreadful <32.Re3?>.

Jan-05-19  schachfuchs: The engine gives 31....Rca5 too, but the continuation

32.Rd1 Ra4 33.Qh3 Ra2 34.Rg2 Ra1+ 35.Nxa1 Qa2+ 36.Kc1 Qxa1+ 37.Kd2 Qxb2 38.Qc8 Ra3 39.Qc7+ +1.01 (27 ply)
is far from being clear, let alone winning for Black?

However, I have to admit that I also don't understand the subtle maneuver Rca5 - Ra4 - Ra2 - Ra1+...

Jan-05-19  mel gibson: I didn't see that but then again Stockfish 10 is calling it a draw:

  agb2002: White threatens Nxc5.

The semiopen a-file suggests 31... Rca5:

A) 32.Nxa5 Rxa5

A.1) 33.Kc1 Qd4 wins decisive material due to Ra1#.

A.2) 33.b3 Qc3 and mate in two.

A.3) 33.Rff1 Qa2+ 34.Kc1 Qa1+ 35.Kd2 Qxb2

A.3.a) 36.Qe6 Qc3+ 37.Kd1 (37.Kc1 Ra1#; 37.Ke2 Qxc2+ 38.Ke3 Ra3+ 39.Qb3 Rxb3#) 37... Ra1+ 38.Ke2 Qxc2+ and mate in three.

A.3.b) 36.Rc1 Qc3+ 37.Kd1 (37.Ke2 b3 looks winning -38.cxb3 Ra2+ and mate in two-) 37... b3 38.cxb3 Qd3+ 39.Ke1 Ra2 wins.

A.4) 33.Ref1 Qa6 34.Kc1 (34.b3 Ra1+ 35.Kb2 Qa2(3)#; 34.c3 b3 35.Kc1 Qd3 wins) 34... Ra1+ 35.Kd2 Rxf1 wins decisive material.

A.5) 33.Rg(h)1 Qa2+ 34.Kc1 Qa1+ 35.Kd2 Qxg1, etc.

A.6) 33.Rg2 Qa2+ 31.Kc1 Qa1+ 35.Kd2 Qxb2 looks similar to A.3.

A.7) 33.Ree2 Qa6 34.Kc1 (else as above) 34... Ra1+ 35.Kd2 b3 with attack.

B) 32.Kc1 Ra2 with the threat Rxb2, taking advantage of the defenseless rook on e1, looks good for Black.

  patzer2: White's decisive error was 32. Re3??, allowing 32...Qd4 -+ (mate-in-27, Stockfish 10 @ 51 ply). Instead, 32. Rd1 ⩲ (+0.59 @ 42 ply, Stockfish 10) or 32. Nxa5 Rxa5 33. Rg2 = (0.00 @ 37 ply, Stockfish 10) would have held for White.

Even so, the 31...Rca5! = to ⩲ solution to today's Saturday puzzle is better than the next best alternative 31...Rc8 32. Rh2 (+0.92 @ 38 ply, Stockfish 10).
