It is not always good that the King is closely guarded by heavy pieces -- sometimes they deprived the King escape squares.

  Nf3em:

Walang magawa kagabi, naglaro ako sa chess.com 3m+2sec. Move 18.Bxg6 needs no calculation but mere intuition knowing that Black's pieces are jammed on the QS and cannot defend the monarch on time.

  Nf3em: That last game is characterized by the thematic LSB sac, Queen check and that Rook lift.
Aug-12-17  Iskubadayd: Wow, one moment it was serene, then just like that... chaos! And the king is all alone. Good game, Dan. Nice to see you, too. :)

  Nf3em: About a year after winning game with a mating attack characterized by the Rook invasion on e6 & g6, the same pattern happened in the following game:

Position below is reached after 19... Bxf2.


click for larger view

Here, I cannot play 20.Rh4 so I played ...

20.d4 ...


click for larger view

My idea is to cut off coordination of Black Queen and LSB. But during my opponent's turn to move I realized that I missed a cute mating attack 20.Bxe6! fxe6 21.Qxg6+ Kh8 22.Qh5+ Kg8 (or Kg7) 23.Rg4+#. Of course 20... fxe6 is not forced but any other move I will play 21.Qxg6+.

20... f5


click for larger view

Black saw he can't play 20... Bxd4 due to 21.Rh4 and mate is inevitable. With Black's move I am forced to move my Rook on e4, but where? 21.Rf4 is met by Be3; 21.Re2 or Re5 is simply met by Bxd4; The other Rook move 21.Rxf2 is met by 21... fxe4 22.Rf4 (with Rh4 next) Qxd4 23.c3 Qe3 and Black is winning.

In my previous move I missed the sac on e6 but not this time ...

21.Rxe6! ...


click for larger view

21... Qxd4??

Mate is inevitable after this move. The line 21... fxe6 22.Bxe6+ Rf7 23.Qxg6+ Kh8 24.Bxf7 c5 is probably the best for Black.

22.Rxg6+ Qg7 23.Qxg7#

Walang magawa kabi, di makatulog dahil sobra sa tulog maghapon. E di mag-chess.

Below is another example of an "Who get there first?" attacking the enemy King in a game with opposite side castling.


click for larger view

<Position after 23... Nd5>

24.b6! ...

<The best way to bust open the Black King's position.>

24... a6?

<Probably better is 24... Bc6 though White is still winning after 25.bxa7 Kd7 26.Nc5+ Ke7 27.Nxb7 etc.>

25.Bxa6 ...

<White uses the Q+B battery to take advantage of Weak light squares. There is another forcing move/line 25.bxc7 attacking R/d8 and threatens Nd6 forking Black's K & Q and which leads to massive material advantage after 25... Kxc7 26.Rb7+ Kxb7 27.Nd6+ Ka7 28.Nxf7, etc. But, of course, it is a matter of preference.>

25... Nf4??

<Black tries to disrupt White's attack by attacking White's Queen. But White ignored it and continue the assault. Again, 25 ... Bc6 is the best defensive move.>

26.Bxb7+ Black resigned here.

  Nf3em: I forgot to mention the line where White wins easily after 24... axb6 25.axb6 Nxb6 26.Rxb6! (removing the guard of a8) cxb6 27.Nd6+ (diagram) followed by taking the Black Queen and then one of the Rooks.
