My name is Geoffrey Haug. I am a correspondence player with a (mild but improving) rating of 1956. My first tournament victory can be found here: I also recently scored 7/10 points in, a Chess960 world cup event where I lost to GM Mark Noble who got 7.5 points (and with whom I managed to get a draw while playing with the white pieces.) I am hoping to engage minds with other chess players.

Madman99X: Isn't 2005 a little anachronistic for Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess? I wonder if the individual playing the black pieces duplicated a blunder from yesteryear?

Madman99X: If 29. Nc7 Rxc7 30. Rxe8+ Kf7 31. Qxh7+ Kxe8 32. Qg8+ Qf8 33. Qe6 Kd8 [DIAGRAM] Where is the win? Black is a piece up. It looks like white would have to play to try to force a perpetual.

Madman99X: After 14. Ne4 Qd8 15. Nf6+ Nxf6 16. Bg5 Re8 Houdini plays 17. exf6, and black is in some deep doodoo. The queen threatens to come to g4 or h5, and a rook lift is also possible. [DIAGRAM] 17... gxf8 18. Bh4 Kf8 19. Qf3 where the king cannot escape to e7 for Bxf6+ is one possible ...

Madman99X: 18. cxb4 looks dubious, immobilizing the a3 bishop. Bxb4 doesn't look great, but surely it is better than the text?

Madman99X: I think the puzzle on the main page is incorrect. On the main page a black pawn sits on f7. The same pawn is not there in the actual game.

Madman99X: Is there some reason black never moves his bishop off of c8? This combination isn't possible if the rooks are connected.

Madman99X: I spent a few minutes trying to chase the queen around, then trying to win the bishop (which is utterly futile) I tried moving the knight to e1 to cover g2, and then I realized, hey.... If I move my queen 48... Qg3, the king can't move, and I'm threatening mate the next move... ...

Madman99X: Mondays make me feel good about myself. 27. Qxf7 check is of course the winning move. After 27... Rxf7 28. Rc8+ Rf8 I then found the unnecessary winning move 29. Bd5+!!! (Three !!!'s is a brilliancy prize, right?) and after 29... Qe6 30. Be6+ Kh8 31. R(either/or)xf8#
