Mar-15-12  mmousez: Why doesn't Black play 22. ... Rg8 to continue?
Mar-15-12  imthecat: 23. Qxg8.

  HeMateMe: Someond did a lot of searching in the database for a "Zeids" sounding game, played in March, or course.
Mar-15-12  ephesians: Maybe black should have played 11...Qd6? The plan would be for the f6 knight to be kicked to d7, the b8 knight to go to a6, and for black to castle queenside.
Mar-15-12  scormus: <He#Me> Indeed, on 15th March!
Mar-15-12  goodevans: 22 ... Re8 (the best attempt to save the N) 23.Re1+ Kd6 24.Rxe8 Nxe8 25.Qxf7 and the threat of 26.Qe7# wins the N anyway.
Mar-15-12  ossipossi: <ephesians> no pc checked, but yes <11...h6> worths a <?>

  Penguincw: 16...♕a6+, not the best move. It brings the white king to safety, and puts the queen away from the action.

  kevin86: The knight is attacked and defended twice,but the rook will chase away the his doom.

  whiteshark: All hail the Quantitative Easer and beware the Ides of Farce...
Mar-15-12  pericles of athens: kinda like today's puzzle, white's bishop develops in attack while at the same time making space for a rook check.

black king in center, with lots of problems.

Mar-15-12  LoveThatJoker: Beautiful final position!


Mar-16-12  mmousez: Doh! I had chess blindness yesterday: didn't see the black N at f6 is pinned by the g5 Bishop. :P
