Nov-20-06  manbot: 1.8 seconds!
Nov-20-06  YouRang: Good Monday puzzle. It's not hard to solve, and it's not hard to figure out why black ("NN") chose to remain anonymous.
Nov-20-06  greensfield: Loked at 11. Be5 and found mate. Thought I got the puzzle, but there is a quicker solution with 11. Qxh6+!. Oh well
Nov-20-06  haha: same to me :P, but 11. Be5 is not mate...
Nov-20-06  YouRang: <haha: same to me :P, but 11. Be5 is not mate...> Well, it's not *immediate* mate, but mate is certainly in view after 11. Be5 -- just not AS quick as 11. Qxh6.

  kevin86: I like this miniature. Black gains the queen,but must open the fatal door to his helpless king. Three minor pieces are quite enough to choke a king.
Nov-20-06  Oldrey: <peligroso patzer> but if we take off the knight on e7, Qg6 would be answered by Qxg5
Nov-20-06  Stellar King: <syracrophy> <Easy! Just as in the game NN vs Blackburne, 1880> That is because it is called the Blackburne's Mate ..I got it too!! 6 more days to go!!!!
Nov-20-06  TopaLove: <peligroso patzer> If you want to remove pieces from the board, remove the h6 pawn and Black is already mated. :P

  thegoodanarchist: I have had the pleasure of playing a similar combination in a tournament game. However, my queen sac was not with check, so my opponent declined it and avoided the mate by two bishops. But I still won :)
Nov-20-06  halloween: My choice was 11. Ne6, which is also winning but not as quickly. Do I still get the points?
Nov-20-06  BadKnight: Saw the solution in few seconds. Yup, its monday's puzzle. :)
Nov-20-06  alphee: After a dull and wet day it's good for the morale. Very easy but still good. Thanks
Nov-20-06  ChessPraxis: What FUN!
Nov-20-06  YouRang: <halloween: My choice was 11. Ne6, which is also winning but not as quickly. Do I still get the points?>

I'm not seeing it. How you proceed to win after 11...dxe6?

Nov-20-06  einuj: When names are omitted and dates are unknown, sometimes it makes me think if some of these puzzles actually a game that really happened before the eyes of the author; or the author just made it up because it would look good.

I really hate when my opponent won't cooperate with my mating combination.

  dzechiel: Cute. I think that 50% of Monday and Tuesday puzzles can be solved by looking for the queen sacrifice.
Nov-21-06  Bare Beginner: woo hoo ... got it quickly!

Wrong?
Jan-18-09  WhiteRook48: 8...0-0?? is one of the worst NN blunders.
Mar-09-09  WhiteRook48: wow! This is a great game
May-14-12  Llawdogg: That was a fun queen sacrifice!
May-14-12  David2009: Hard to win against good defence from the position at move 9:
