  OhioChessFan: I took a while. I am pretty sure I'd have gotten it faster on a Wednesday and not wasted a lot of time trying to sac a Queen or Rook.
Sep-29-14  zb2cr: The conditioned reflex we have, of looking for a ♕ or at least a ♖ sacrifice on Mondays, kept me from seeing this for close to a minute.
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Anyone else take a look at White's name and think of Count Istvan Teleky?

  whiteshark: <29. Bh6+!>, and that's it.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Sneaky: <LIzzard> That line is very creative but I think there's one big problem. If 29.Qxg8+? Kxg8!! 30.Rxe8+ Kh7 and suddenly it's White who is fighting for his life.
Sep-29-14  eblunt: As it's Monday I had to start with a Queen sac :

29 ♕xf8+ ♖xf8 30 ♗h6+ ♖f7 31 ♗xf7+ ♔f8 32 ♖xe8+ ♔h7 33 ♖h8+ ♔g6 34 ♖h6+ ♔g5 35 h4+ then rook lift and mate.

Really lovely until I realised 29 ... Kxf8 spoils it, so went with the boring 29. Bh6+ instead !

  Penguincw: Wow. This Monday puzzle nearly had me fooled. Luckily, I got 29.Bh6+ Rxh6 30.Qg7# 1-0.

< I took a while. I am pretty sure I'd have gotten it faster on a Wednesday and not wasted a lot of time trying to sac a Queen or Rook. >


Sep-29-14  eblunt: <LIzzard> same problems as my sequence .. Szily me.
Sep-29-14  LIzzard: <eblunt> Szily me too!!!
Sep-29-14  waustad: I was almost seduced into the "obvious" queen sac but it didn't quite work. Then I noticed that the bishop move did work.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Castleinthesky: Got it, but like others it took longer because I started with the flashiest sacrifice first.
Sep-29-14  YetAnotherAmateur: Bishop(!) sac Monday!

29. Bh6+ Rxh6 30. Qg7#

It sure helps that any black pieces that can help are pinned and smothering the king.

Sep-29-14  LIzzard: <Sneaky> THANKS! I missed the obvious there!

  kevin86: cg. com are the coy boys today!

We have a fake queen sac: instead of sacrificing the queen, white mates by Bh6+ and mates next move at g7.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Longview: Interesting twists. I kept trying to capture pieces to keep the checks going: 29. Qxg8+ with two options Rxg8 and Kxg8,
29. B-h6+ Rxh6 30. Qxh6+ Nxh6
29. Qxg7+ Rxg7
29. Rxe8+ Kxe8 and got no where but letting the King out

until I saw Q-g7++ on my 6th route of analysis! Eureka! I like this one.

Sep-29-14  PJs Studio: Monday usually takes five seconds or less! But I got distracted by 29.Qxg8?? Rxg8?? (29...Kxg8) 30.Bh6 mate

Obviously 29.Bh6+ works nicely. Just took me a few extra seconds.

Premium Chessgames Member
  gawain: This is easy, but not easy in the usual Monday way. There is no queen sac and no rook sac. The forced win is 29 Bh6+ Rxh6 30 Qg7#. Pretty.
Sep-29-14  davidcinca: As a Monday puzzle I've only seen the queen sac and mate in a few moves.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Lighthorse: Interesting posts. I'm fairly new here, and so I'm not used to what seems to be a consistent Monday theme of a Queen sack.

Thus, I saw the solution in about 2 seconds. I guess I'll need to be careful in about a few more months.

Sep-29-14  BOSTER: Looking at <POTD> I recognized him immediately. The knight on g8. The beautiful body ,grace, bright color and ...sleeping standing. He was <pinned>.

Couple days before I met him in the <foggy KID>, on the same place g8, when Tal playing 27.Re8 (see picture) not only <pinned> the proud knight g8,but also freezed everything , what young Bobby holded in the bank rank.

Maybe it sojund strange ,but "The Meeting Place Cannot Be Changed".

But the most unforgettable <pin> was in the game Polugaevsky vs Hort,1976(diagram).

Black to play.You can try.

Sep-29-14  Cheapo by the Dozen: Actually, wouldn't Black have been in good shape if he'd castled long on Move 17? After that, ... Kb8 and ... Nc6, in some order, would seem to address a lot of White's threats.
Sep-29-14  Superjombonbo: Obviously, 29. Bh6+ wins, right?
29...Rxh6 30. Qg7#.
That was the puzzle of September 29. I saw the answer immediately.
Sep-29-14  paavoh: This was a Monday plus, 'cause it starts with a Bishop sac, followed by mate on g7.

  patzer2: Most difficult Monday in a while! Finally found 29. Bh6+ Rxh6 30. Qg7#, but only after overlooking mate-in-one and exploring 29. Bh6+ Rxh6 30. Rxe8+? (initially missing 30. Qg7# or 30. Re1!? Rxc8? 31. Qg7#) 30...Kxe8 31. Qxg8+ Kd7 32. Rc1 Ke6! =.

I had to slow down to clearly visualize and recheck the position after 29. Bh6+ Rxh6 to find 30. Qg7#.

Incidentally, 29. Qxg8+?? Kxg8! (not 29...Rxf8?? 30. Bh6+ Rg7 31. fxg7+! ) 30...Kh7 31. h4 Rg8 leaves White with a lost position.

Premium Chessgames Member
  patzer2: White's win begins earlier than the two-move-mate 29. Bh6+ Rxh6 30. Qg7#.

The decisive combination begins with the combined pin and clearance move 25. Qh8! . This clever move (25. Qh8!) not only pins the Knight and defends the overloaded pawn on f6, but also threatens to win the trapped Rook with the pawn advance h4 and h5.

Earlier, Fritz recommends the improvement 13...h6! when play might go 13... h6! 14. Qh5! d5! 15. Bxd5 Rf8 16. Bxe7 Qxe7 17. Nd2 d3! 18. Rae1 f4! 19. Rxf4 Be6 20. Bxe6 Qxe6 21. e5 O-O-O = to .
