Bubo bubo: <<Cheapo by the Dozen: If Black had played 17 ... e6, the continuation could have been 18 Ng5+ fxg5 19 Rf1+ Ke7 20 Qf6+ Kd7 and then, believe it or not, 21 O-O-O+> Unfortunately, I don't believe it! Doesn't Black have 21...Kc7?> I guess <Cheapo by the ...

Bubo bubo: 2# with 26.Qh7+ Rxh7 27.Rxh7#

Bubo bubo: <Alkaff: But after 23... Nxf3+ 24 kg2 Qxc1 Black will force the line played in the game> Not quite: 25.Rxd8+ Bf8 26.Qxc1
   Feb-12-17 B Milic vs Gligoric, 1947
Bubo bubo: <<59 g6 Kg5 60 h8=Q> not 60 Kg8? Kxg6 and Black wins> 60...Kxg6 61.h8Q is still a draw. After 59...Kg5 White may also try 60.Kf7, hoping for 60...Rf1+??, but if the rook stubbornly stays on the h-file, White can make no progress, since 61.g7 Rxh7 pins the g-pawn.

Bubo bubo: <Conrad93> 61.a7 Rxb7 62.a8Q leads to the lengthy and annoying endgame K+Q vs K+R; supporting the passed pawns with the king is a simpler way to win.

Bubo bubo: Happy birthday, GM Yuri Averbakh! Dear The world's oldest living grandmaster turns 95, but is not chosen <POTD> on his anniversary?!

Bubo bubo: Black is already up the exchange against a pawn, but the pair of passed white pawns might become dangerous. Black wins one of these pawns with 27...Rxe4+ 28.Kxe4 (otherwise Rxe5), and now the skewer 28...Bf5+ wins back the rook.

Bubo bubo: Before moving, <always> check all potentially dangerous replies: checks, mate threats, captures - and threats against the queen!

Bubo bubo: <psmith> Thank you - completely missed the fact that 24...d3 renders Qb1+ a threat! :-(
   Feb-06-17 T Dowden vs S Yee, 2016 (replies)
Bubo bubo: 40.Qxh7+ Kxh7 41.Rh4+ Bh6 42.Rxh6# One single line, starting with a ♕-sac: canonical Monday!
