|Aug-31-15|| ||Abdel Irada: If you find the Monday puzzle too easy, you can always turn it into a Wednesday puzzle by starting with 28. Rxe6.|
|Aug-31-15|| ||Once: A very instructive game to play through. Without exception, every white move improves his position by either taking more space or giving his pieces more scope. |
By contrast, black shuffles fairly aimlessly. He prepares b5 but then wimps out with b6. His rooks defy strategy by choosing closed files. His queen wibbles to e8, then back to d8, then c7. His minor pieces twiddle their thumbs.
This wasn't a checkmate, it was a mercy killing.

|Aug-31-15|| ||nisharaj31: Looks like a helpmate!|
|Aug-31-15|| ||whiteshark: <28 Qxh7+!>, and that's it|
|Aug-31-15|| ||Caissas Clown: Prior to opening the website,I said to myself "Find Her Majesty - then sacrifice her". Got it in literally two seconds,though it helped that I made two presumptions,that it would be White to move and,of course,that there'd be a crushing follow-up.
I think it also helped that she was easy to spot,in the top right-hand corner.|
|Aug-31-15|| ||Gilmoy: Semi-canonical Anastasia vs. the fianchetto. This is one of the stings in Pf6 positions (and why a sub-meme exists to sac Bf6 just to replace it with Pf6).|
Finish the Anastasia checklist with a rook lift <26.Rd3>. Now Pf6(+Bb2) becomes a <mate fork> without even moving again: <27.Qh6> threatens mate at g7, and <27..Rg8> self-blocks the last flight square for Anastasia.
Black's KID-like position is tricky already. You simply can't allow both <15.e5> losing h7 and <23..e6> losing f6.
|Aug-31-15|| ||dfcx: yes 28.Qxh7+ mates in two
28.Rh3 also mates. only difference is that black can delay the mate by one move with 28.Qxh2+
|Aug-31-15|| ||M.Hassan: "Very Easy"
Mate in two by Queen sac
|Aug-31-15|| ||morfishine: The Black King is cornered like a rat: <28.Qxh7+> 28...Kxh7 29.Rh3#|
|Aug-31-15|| ||M.Hassan: I think Black's biggest mistake was to let the pawn occupy f6 square. On move 24, Black's Queen was under attack by the Knight, instead of taking the Knight and letting the e pawn occupy the strategic f6 square, he could attack White's Queen also and as below:|
Black would have lost the pawn on g5 but there is no mate possibility or not that I can see.

"agb2002: White has the bishop pair for a bishop and a knight."
"Abdel Irada: If you find the Monday puzzle too easy, you can always turn it into a Wednesday puzzle by starting with 28. Rxe6."
...if we link the two we get.

That is in fact slightly more complicated after 28....Nf8! I looked at this in the sense that white could somewhat mock his opponent (if you see the double sac you see the sac in the puzzle position too) by setting up a double sac with 28.Rh3!? Nf8 29.Ree3?! (29.Be5 being much stronger in this position):

Black seems to be in a chokehold that he can only escape out of starting to sacrifice pieces, including the queen. However, after 29....g5! black creates the only escape square he needs and white's foremost threat is thwarted.

|Aug-31-15|| ||zb2cr: Very easy, if you've seen it before. 28. Qxh7, Kxh7(forced); 29. Rh3#.|
|Aug-31-15|| ||Oxspawn: It is a pity the queen can bludgeon through by taking the h pawn (followed by Rh3#) as there are all kinds of torture white can inflict – for example by 28. Bxe6 after which black dare not take with the pawn or take the f pawn with the knight.|
|Aug-31-15|| ||kevin86: Black's last move stopped one mate and enabled another- the escape square g8, is gone. Mate in two follows via a queen sac.|
|Aug-31-15|| ||BOSTER: < Sally S. 28.Rxe6>.
Nf8, and no mate.|
|Aug-31-15|| ||MarkFinan: <<SimonWebbsTiger: the chessgames dot com website appears to be a home to disgusting, dangerous and mentally deranged people.
Hey <Sweaty Tiger hidden handgun> Welcome back buddy X
|Aug-31-15|| ||ajile: 11..b6? Isn't the point of Black's q-side play to advance ..b5 (?)|
And White didn't do anything to stop Black's signature move. If you play passively as Black you deserve to get crushed.
