|Sep-12-17|| ||stst: The position has it both g1, g2 for the P are protected, so go Q-sac Tuesdy:|
37.KxQ (what else? left her around to do more harm?/) Bc5+
38.Kh2 (Poor monarch, left alone limping) g1=Q (& protected!!) ..... the devastating state...
White meaningless to continue
|Sep-12-17|| ||stst: <I am 2170 in chess.com tactics. Is it good?>|
pretty good, 2710 might be better...
|Sep-12-17|| ||stst: <..who was this man ?>|
Could be a woman, from Russia ... with Love
|Sep-12-17|| ||jffun1958: <Phony Benoni: Well, the mate after 37.Kg3 isn't that hard: 37...Qe1+ 38.Kg4 g1Q# 39.Kf5 / Kh5 Qg6#.>
39. Kh5 Qh4# .|
|Sep-12-17|| ||FSR: 36...Qxg1+ is strong like bull.|
|Sep-12-17|| ||WorstPlayerEver: <Steve.Patzer: What did 36. Rg1 accomplish?>|
The ways of the Lord are unfathomable.
|Sep-12-17|| ||AlicesKnight: 36.... Qxg1+ either precipitates a 2-queen death after 37.Kg3 Qe1+, or allows a new Q and mate after 37.Kxg1 Bc5+; 38.K moves g1=Q. 34.Kh2 permits a pretty finish but with ...Bc5 in the offing White looks doomed; e.g. 34.Rxf3 Bxf3 ad the other R cannot recapture because of the mate on g1. If 36. R else on rank, ...Qf2 prepares a fatal double-check.|
|Sep-12-17|| ||Al2009: Bobby Fischer was watching the game at this point, and when Bisguier took the Rook, Bobby smiled and said: "Good. This time old Arthur did not blunder!" Fischer was referring to this game:
Fischer vs Bisguier, 1963
where Bisguier made a horrible mistake (26...Rxb2??), throwing away a game that Fischer himself evaluated as "perfectly equal" in his "My 60 memorable games".|
|Sep-12-17|| ||Lambda: I spent most of my time staring at the position trying to work out what was wrong with simply 36... Bc5|
|Sep-12-17|| ||malt: <36...Q:g1+ 37.K:g1 Bc5+ 38.Kh2 g1=Q#>|
|Sep-12-17|| ||Once: <Lambda:I spent most of my time staring at the position trying to work out what was wrong with simply 36... Bc5>|
I wondered about that too. 36...Qxg1+ seemed a little too obvious so I looked for other ways to win. If g1 is so weak, what happens if we pile up on it with another piece? White is hardly about to launch a counter-attack.
Fritzie says there are multiple ways to win today, although the game continuation is the fastest. 36...Bc5 is perfectly fine. It's Fritz's second choice with an eval of over -10. White can't save his rook.
For giggles I asked Fritz to evaluate the position as if it was white to move instead of black. He still thinks that black is winning by more than -5.
36...Qxg1+ has to be the puzzle "solution" as it is so forcing. But nearly every none silly move also wins. Including giving white the move!
|Sep-12-17|| ||Pasker: Easy and also a rare one|
|Sep-12-17|| ||DarthStapler: Easy indeed|
|Sep-12-17|| ||Richard Taylor: Yes. O.k. 2 so far. Nice sac!|
|Sep-12-17|| ||morfishine: <36...Qxg1+> and Black wins|
|Sep-12-17|| ||PawnSac: it doesn't get any easier than this. nice game by Bisguier|

|Sep-12-17|| ||kevin86: Black sacs queen for rook, chases the king away, then repromotes to mate.|
|Sep-12-17|| ||lzromeu: 27Qe4 >bad move
The game is lost here
|Sep-12-17|| ||jdc2: This seemed a lot easier than yesterday's problem, didn't even have to switch the board around to look at it from Black's point of view.|
|Sep-12-17|| ||Magpye: Qxg1+ wins.
I dream of playing moves like this. Unfortunately, my opponents find them first.
|Sep-12-17|| ||thegoodanarchist: There's a little Black queen on g1 today...
It's the same ol' thin' as yesterday....
I've stood here before inside the pouring rain
with the world turning circles running round my brain
I guess I'm always hoping I will win with mate
but it's my destiny to be the king of pain...
|Sep-12-17|| ||The Kings Domain: Sweet puzzle and an impressive positional game by Bisguier.|
|Sep-12-17|| ||waustad: Certainly one time he didn't misfire.|
|Sep-13-17|| ||gawain: I tried 36...Qxg1+ right away but I imagined (wrongly) that Black would then be able to skewer the white Q and K with 37...Bc5+ and 38...Bc4. No, not quite!|
After absorbing that disappointment I did see the actual winning continuation.
