I'm Mike from Barberton Ohio, USA. played off and on most of my life (born 1952). I love the game but not enough to join a club - my main past time is my guitar. Hence, my chess skill is pretty pathetic. i love this website and have been following it for a few years, decided it was time to chime in. i really enjoy a lot of the kibitzers comments. Thanks

1.e4effort: Beautiful onslaught! Despite black making very logical responses after Rxg7+ and the ensuing moves, he's left with no options - if he takes the bish it's mate, if he doesn't take the bish, its mate.

1.e4effort: Got this one - as it was in keeping with this week's theme of rook sacs and bishop combos. Nice finish for Penrose

1.e4effort: Monday, maybe Tuesday level. Why? Because I solved it in just a few seconds

1.e4effort: The white pony is protecting the lady. BN check at F4 is a stunning move. If the WN captures, the Q is dead. Move the K to threaten the BN and the WN dies. At this point W is lost. If he takes the Q then a BN fork at E4 seals the deal. Black is now ahead a p and the N - he should

1.e4effort: I thought that since its Monday there must be a mating trick. Mondays are ALWAYS sac/mate day, eh? I saw the solution to the puzz but kept looking for the mate, almost drove myself nuts - but that's a short drive.

1.e4effort: Beautiful.

1.e4effort: This is like a chess game I play with dice with my granddaughter. 1 for p, 2 for R, 3 for N, etc.
