  zanzibar: Answer to previous position: <29.Qd3!>

I call this an X-Ray Fork, the queen is directly attacking the knight on f3, and also x-ray connects with both h7 and h3.

Very difficult to see, but beautiful in its logic, imo.

  zanzibar: Black to move after 21.Nc6xe4

Black has a couple of winning moves, find the winningest one actually played in the game.

Mar-15-18  Retireborn: ...Rxg2+ with the idea ...Qe3+ and then mate? Took me 10 seconds to see it, about a minute to check I wasn't blundering. Life in the old brain yet?

  zanzibar: <RB> well, .31...Rxg2 32.R1f2 and the f1 square is cleared for the king's retreat, if need be. The e3 square has the White queen covering... etc., etc.

The idea is a M-2, and involves a Q+B dovetail. Take another look.

(The Q+B dovetails are usually a little harder to see than some other mates, and the 30 seconds comes from <ChessTempo>'s blitz version of the problem.)

Mar-16-18  Retireborn: <z> Sad face

Premium Chessgames Member
  zanzibar: Yeah, sorry, 'bout that. But the Q+B dovetail is easier to miss than one might think (as I learned the hard way doing <CT> training).
Mar-16-18  Retireborn: <z> Don't you worry about that, old son, I have plotted an elegant revenge :)

  zanzibar: And one more for the road...

(White to move after 41...Qd2-e3)

Maybe the real problem is to find Black's best move at move 41? Still, White has a nice quick tactic.

G Sargissian vs Anastasian, 2002 (&m=42)

(Obvious puns need not apply!)

Mar-22-18  Retireborn: <z> 1...Rxe3 2.fxe3 Bd2 and the mate threat means White has to give up his rook. That's easy(ish) to see because Black has no meaningful alternatives.

In a game I would almost certainly miss this, exchange rooks and advance the a-pawn. Whether that's good enough to win is perhaps a more interesting question.

Premium Chessgames Member
  zanzibar: <RB> I think the rook exchange is winning too - but much more work, and not quite so stylish!

  zanzibar: (White to move after 30...Rc8-c2)

Normally, I show positions that are sharp, i.e. there's just one clear winning move. Not true here, there's two winning moves, but the main idea is common to both.

Looks like White missed it, given the result was a draw.

  zanzibar: (White to move after 24...Qb8-b4)


click for larger view

Black, being a pawn down, is playing up the bishop double jeopardy, but White has an X-ray zwisch for a clear win.

One of the branches has a nice mate pattern in it.

  zanzibar: Not too often I do an endgame puzzle round these parts (or any parts for that matter), but here's one:

(Black to move after 58.Ke3-d4)

It's sharp- only one move yields a draw for Black.

ZB played 58...Rc1, which didn't exactly work out too well.

Apr-04-18  Retireborn: <z> Whenever I see such a position I always reach for my Tablebase, rather than pretend I have any real understanding of such things.

Still, that position to give me a frisson of Ostend deja vu ie the end of this game:-

  zanzibar: Thanks for the tip <RB>, it's on my list (still tied up doing <Ostend (1906)> at the moment).

  zanzibar: Speaking of <Ostend (1906)>, here's a cooked position from one of the games:

(White to move)


click for larger view

The actual position comes from <Znosko-Borovsky -- Maljutin (R1.2)>, move 18. I sharpened the position but kept the idea behind White's 18th move.

  zanzibar: In the last example I spoke of the position as "cooked" since it was modified from the actual game. This conflicts with the more standard problemist meaning when composition has an unforeseen alternate key or a solution in fewer moves than advertised.

I still like my meaning for "cooked", as it's also suggestive - but perhaps I should use an alternate phrase...

The following position is "seasoned" from a Chigorin QR-odds game, at the 18th move:

(White to move)

The key is basically the same as played in the game, but I eliminated the alternate winning, but unplayed, side-lines.
