schachfuchs: Took me 10 sec to verify that the Bb2 still allows 31.Qxh6+. So, Monday or Tuesday level?
 
   Jan-13-19 A Pichot vs I Cheparinov, 2018 (replies)
 
schachfuchs: Thanks for the well-chosen sunday puzzle - played exactly one year ago!
 
   Jan-12-19 I Saric vs M Bosiocic, 2018 (replies)
 
schachfuchs: I guessed the main theme of this puzzle would be the exploitation of the opposite coloured bishop for attacking on the black squares (esp. h6). Nevertheless, I couldn't find the nice retreat Bc1, let alone the final screwer b3/Bb2. It's also worth mentioning that black had ...

schachfuchs: I agree: the easiest puzzle this week (up to now ;-) )!
 
   Jan-05-19 Kotronias vs Ivanchuk, 2011 (replies)
 
schachfuchs: The engine gives 31....Rca5 too, but the continuation 32.Rd1 Ra4 33.Qh3 Ra2 34.Rg2 Ra1+ 35.Nxa1 Qa2+ 36.Kc1 Qxa1+ 37.Kd2 Qxb2 38.Qc8 Ra3 39.Qc7+ +1.01 (27 ply) is far from being clear, let alone winning for Black? However, I have to admit that I also don't understand the ...

schachfuchs: @al wazir <What happens after 30. Rxg6+ ? If 30...fxg6, then 31.Qd7 Nxc2+ 32.Kb2 > You may choose: Mate in 17: 32....Rb8+ 33.Kxc3 Qe3+ 34.Kxc2 Qxe2+ 35.Kc3 Qb2+ 36.Kc4 Qc2+ 37.Kd5 Qd3+ 38.Ke6 Rb6+ 39.Ke7 Qa3+ 40.Kd8 Qf8+ ... Mate in 17: 32....Na4+ 33.Qxa4 Rb8+ 34.Qb3+ ...

schachfuchs: Yes, my question was: is that too difficult (or too known??) for a Monday puzzle queen sac? Condolences to Peter! ;-)
 
   Dec-26-18 V Plotkin vs V Drkulec, 2008 (replies)
 
schachfuchs: My solution went like this: 24.Nf5+ gxf5 25.Qxf4+ Kh7 26.Ng5+ Kh8? 27.Qh4+ Kg7 (27...Nh6 28.Nxf7+ Qxf7 29.Qxh6+ Qh7 30.Qf6+) 28.Ne6 double check and # but this was "too good to be true" - among others for 26...Kg7 27.Ne6++ Kh8 and how does white make progress?

schachfuchs: You don't need to be a Chessmaster (Computer) to see this combination! ;-) Merry Christmas everybody!
 
   Dec-15-18 L Fernandez Siles vs Antonio Hernandez, 2008 (replies)
 
schachfuchs: Me too, I got the first move but then not much more! Pretty good stuff for a 'very difficult' saturday! Did white even calculate this combination upon 25.Nxh7+ ??
