Oxspawn: If playing this game I would have described it as very nervy rather than very easy. Whoever plays next wins (black Qc2 and then to b2). Tempting therefore to go defensive. But since it is POTD and Monday, the tension is released. 22. Qxh7+ Nxh7 23. gxh7# (the white bishop covering

Oxspawn: I saw 31. Bxe6 but assumed that black would not retake with the rook since that is clearly a back rank disaster but instead opt go a piece down after 31. Bxe6 Bxh6 32. Bxd7 Bxd7 33. Bxh6….. But perhaps white has something stronger 31. Bxe6 Bxh6 32. Bxf6 Bg7 33. Nf7+?…

Oxspawn: 24. ............Qh4+ 25. Kg1 Re2+ 26. Qf2 Bxf2# The black rook lives up to its body shape – it doesn’t actually hit anyone but acts as a barrier wall to prevent the queen from taking the bishop and the white rook from intervening.

Oxspawn: Even I got this - on my second sip of tea. Now, tell me again. How do rooks move?

Oxspawn: <PhilFeeley: I went for the queen: Ng8+, then Bb6+.> Me too. The others just got checkmate. We took a whole queen. Result!

Oxspawn: <kevin86: This is NOT a Monday puzzle!> I just checked with my date-database computer (diary) and apparently it is a Monday puzzle - for a few hours more. But if you look at it tomorrow then you will be right.

Oxspawn: This was described as medium so I laid my hands on the keyboard closed my eyes and asked "are you there Bobby? Paul? Emanuel?" There was no answer so I played Ne7 and waited for something to happen. But it never did. Disappointing.

Oxspawn: Can’t wait to see how they got to this position but the black king looks exhausted. 30. Ra1+ Kxa1 or Kxb3 or Kb2 31. Qa3# On the other hand, if black could have first move...

Oxspawn: <goldfarbdj: Qg6+ was the obvious and only move> Not at all how chess is played on my board. I discarded the 'right' move fairly quickly after concluding that the king could escape! and spent time on 40. Ng5, and 40. Bg6. OK, so I was wrong, but I was well entertained before ...

Oxspawn: Failed on Monday, succeeded on Tuesday. At this rate of progression the weekend will be toast. Now if only we could stop referring to Sunday as 'insane'. Honestly? We still don't know that language hurts?
