drollere: another way to look at it: i came on the position without looking who had the move, but when i saw a bishop trained on h2, and an open rank for the Q after Ng4+, i knew the move had to be black's. survey says: when in doubt, hit the h pawn.

drollere: Bh7+ followed by the Q+ was obviously the start, although i thought the h pawn would have a bigger role to play.

drollere: i chose 19. Nd5 as the best way to exploit the pinned pawn; 19. .. Bxd5, 20. pxd5 etc. does not look happy for black. but he pulled it out anyway. <the daily puzzle feature is quite clearly adrift> <stop putting new puzzles> <come on, you don't need even to know how

drollere: i'd encourage those who can to post an obit on this site celebrating mr. freeman and what he built here. it's quite a unique achievement. i'd hope some of the better rated and more frequent visitors to this site are communicating gentle guidance and support to the current ...

drollere: one of the oldest rules in chess: when you're ahead with well protected material (in this case, three pawns): simplify.

drollere: Qc7+ and black loses Q and QB for the R ... or mates in 1.

drollere: the GOTD notes: <The goal is to find the best move, or sequence of moves, in the given position. You do not always have to find a checkmate! Just find the best move.> the notes waffle around "best move" and "first move" and "demonstrate the [first] move is correct" and "just

drollere: i had 36. Rxg7+ Kh8 37. Reg4 Ng6 38. Bxg6 Kxg7 39. Bxf7+ Kf8 40. Rg8# but i wasn't playing black.

drollere: the sac at Rxd7, Kxd7 was not hard to find. i admired the way that the linked passed pawn was used to force the king back to 25. .. c8, then the threatened fork at e7 was used to prevent the bishop capture (with material edge) and gain the tempo to allow Re1 (promoting to N ...
