Aug-09-17  nalinw: I went with

30. Qg6+ Qg7
31. Be6+ Rf7 (or else Rh1#)
32. Bxf7+ .....

winning a Rook - but forgetting that White was already down material!

  FSR: 30.Be6+ crushes: 30...Qxe6 (30...Rf7 31.Rh1) 31.Qg6+ Kh8 32.Rh1+ Qh3 33.Rxh3#

  agb2002: White has a knight for a rook.

Black threatens bxc3.

White can deliver mate with 30.Be6+ Qxe6 (30... Rf7 31.Rh1 and mate next) 31.Qg6+ Kh8 32.Rh1+ Qh3 33.Rxh3#.

Aug-09-17  Walter Glattke: 30.Rh1 or 30.Qg6 allow Qg7, that would save.
Aug-09-17  diagonalley: 30.R-R1 would end a piece up, but for the fact that white's N is en prise
Aug-09-17  saturn2: It took me a while to see that after 30 Be6+ 30..Rf7 takes the king this escape square and after 30.. QxB the queen cannot interpose on g7.

  whiteshark: Mixed the move order. :(
Aug-09-17  Lambda: Calculated 30. Qg6+ Qg7 31. Be6+ Rf7 32. Bxf7+ Kf8 33. Qxg7+ Kxg7 34. Be6 Re8 35. Bxd5 emerging a piece up in the endgame, and was satisfied with that.

  Jimfromprovidence: If you go back to move 22 for white you got yourself a more meaty puzzle.

Aug-09-17  pragni: I think 30.Rd4 with the threat 31.Rg4 also wins. If 30..Rf7 31.Rg4+ Rg7 32.Be6+ Kf8 33.Qh8+
Aug-09-17  Saniyat24: I thought of 30.Rh1
Aug-09-17  Vermit: On move 20...Black plays b4 attacking White's knight. Eleven moves later the pawn on b4 is still attacking the knight. But the game is over.

  malt: 30.Be6+ Rf7
(30...Q:e6 31.Qg6+ Kh8 32.Rh1+ Qh3 33.R:h3# )
31.Rh1
Aug-09-17  matvox: Nunn and done
Aug-09-17  Modulo: White to play, 30. ?

White can mate in four:
30. Be6+ Qxe6 (30. ... Rf7/Qf7 is answered by 31. Rh1! and mate next move) 31. Qg6+ Kh8
32. Rh1+ Qh3
33. Rxh3#

Aug-09-17  saturn2: <lambada Calculated 30. Qg6+ Qg7 31. Be6+ Rf7 32. Bxf7+ Kf8 33. Qxg7+ Kxg7 34. Be6 Re8 35. Bxd5 emerging a piece up in the endgame> 35..bxNc3

  takchess: The Bishop e6+ buys a tempo for whites Rh1 create a mating battery that cannot be blocked. >Qxe6 deflects the queen from the 7th rank or a the block Rf7 creates a pin . A nice tactic.
Aug-09-17  zb2cr: After 30. Be6+, Rf7; 31. Qg6+ why the heck is everybody saying 31. ... Kh8. What happens if 31. ... Kf8? I think Black can wiggle out by this move combined with ... Qxe6 to create an escape square at e7.

The best move after 30...Rf7 is Rh1 not Qg6+

  kevin86: White forced black to occupy f7-the king's only escape from a mate at h8- which is now inescapable.
Aug-09-17  eblunt: < Saturn > 36. ♗xc6 and White has ♗+♖+4♙ vs ♖+3♙

Even I could win from there.

Aug-09-17  saturn2: <eblunt: < Saturn > 36. ♗xc6> True. But what happens if 35..Rd8 pinning the bishop on d5?
Aug-09-17  Lambda: <saturn2> 36. Bxc6. That was the point of 34. Be6

  swclark25: I saw it like <agb2002 30.Be6+ Qxe6 31.Qg6+ Kh8 32.Rh1+ Qh3 33.Rxh3#>...first the Bishop check, but Black Queen takes the Bishop rather than blocking with Rook, then White Queen checks on g6, and mate follows in two.
Aug-14-17  Saniyat24: nice alliterations, <chrisowen>... "effects effronts effaces efforts epicure epidural".
