Dec-12-11  syracrophy: In some chess books, the following puzzle appears from a game of Najdorf against someone called Spirov:

This could make a great POTD for Saturday or Sunday. The idea is brilliant: both ♗ on the diagonals toward the white ♔, a passed ♙, a weak back rank. What else can you ask for?

22...♕c6!!

The thunderbolt! A very neat ♕ sacrifice! Now <23.Bxc6 fails to 23...Bxc6+ 24.Kg1 Rd1+ <the point> 25.Qxd1 e2+ winning>

23.♗a3 <To protect the back rank but for no avail...> 23...♖d2! <The logical continuation> 24.♗xc6 ♗xc6+ 25.♔g1 ♖xe2 26.bxc5 ♖g2+ 27.♔f1 e2+ 28.♔e1 ♖g1+

And curtains down! A great game of the young Najdorf! A puzzle for Sunday after 22.b4 <22...?>

Apr-12-12  wordfunph: 19-year-old's scintillating 22...Qc6!!
Apr-12-12  King Death: Another nice point is that 23. bc loses to 23...Qg2+ 24.Qg2 Rd1#. This was a brilliant combination by the young Mieczyslaw Najdorf.
Apr-12-12  computer chess guy: 22. .. bxc3 wins, too, although it is not as flashy as the offered Queen sac. If 23. axb3 Qxb3 White can only fend off the back-rank mate threats by shedding material.
