Yes, this was easier than I thought it would be. I got yesterday's wrong. I carried out the moves to checkmate, because sacrificing a queen needs to lead to a sure advantage, at the very least.
Oh yes, I am not a chess player, or a doctor for that matter.

hey, i saw that you did sign up! congrats. Once your RD drops below 50 the problems they throw at you stabilize and you will find that you get better at them and then they throw you increasingly harder and harder ones as your rating climbs.
When i started on there I equalized at about 1150 and climbed my way up to a 1430 ish one with improving accuracy.
glad you enjoy it like i do :)
|Nov-05-08|| ||patzer2: For the Wednesday Oct 29, 2008 puzzle solution, Black takes advantage of the pinned pawn on e5 to win a piece after 26...Qxd6! and then pull off a mate-in-two after 27. exd6 Re1+ 28. Kf2 Bh4#.|
|Oct-29-19|| ||groog: Why did white play 26. N-d6?|
|Oct-29-19|| ||mel gibson: I saw that in about 20 seconds.
It's a fun game.
|Oct-29-19|| ||ragtag: < Oct-29-08 Premium Chessgames Member chrisowen: < With Bd8 it sets the trap in which the white knight plunges head first. Perhaps white should've re-took with the bishop, the sac exchange doesnt pay dividends. >>|
When did chrisowen start his written stuttering? What happened? Is there no cure at all?
|Oct-29-19|| ||Chesgambit: Kf2 Bh4#|
|Oct-29-19|| ||malt: Have 26...Q:d6 27.Bh5
(27.ed6 Re1+ 28.Kf2 Bh4# )
|Oct-29-19|| ||1stboard: Reminds me of Olafsson vs Fischer Portroz 1958 .....|
|Oct-29-19|| ||keypusher: What a wonderful combination!|
|Oct-29-19|| ||mikealando: <what a wonderful combination!> Indeed and a fabulous sac to cap it all off - one of those thankfully frequent lightning bolts from the chess blue that help infuse super energy and colour into the day.|
|Oct-29-19|| ||zb2cr: I thought I remembered this one. Across 11 years, the fact that Black wins additional material (already being the exchange up) by 26. ... Qxd6. |
If White takes, 27. exd6, Re1+; 28. Kf1, Bh4#. And as my younger self remarked, if White declines and tries 27. Qf7, Qc7 takes care of the mate threat.
|Oct-29-19|| ||mjmorri: Everybody loves to see a knight posted on the third or sixth rank...for different reasons, of course.|
|Oct-29-19|| ||saffuna: White had so many chances to move his queen bishop and protect the back rank.|
|Oct-29-19|| ||charlesdecharemboul: As ever, after having watched the solution, it's so simple!|
|Oct-29-19|| ||jacc123456: What is wrong with the site? Can´t see the game.|
|Oct-29-19|| ||gawain: What a beautiful puzzle! At first the Black attack looks entirely unpromising. I did not even see anything plausible for Black to try. Then the queen "sacrifice" emerged, which (when accepted) led to a back rank check, which miraculously made it possible for the useless-looking bishop to deliver mate!|
|Oct-29-19|| ||TheaN: Nice and uncomplicated, Black wins a piece after 26....Qxd6 -+ on penalty of 27.exd6? Re1+ 28.Kf2 Bh4#, which is a neat mate. White has options a plenty to not take on d6 but goes a rook down, a deficit that's not playable in the position at hand.|

the rest of us merely block the user ID, and leave personal problems to a personal solution.
|Oct-29-19|| ||TheaN: Oh wait, I did this one before, with quite a bit more in depth analysis than now, which is a bit unnecessary.|

Typically the 'stutter' posts seem to have been removed. Still don't know why it happened and/or why they got removed now. Never blocked Chris though it had no additional value, but interested to see where it comes from or how the posts were generated.
|Oct-29-19|| ||Damenlaeuferbauer: After long pondering, my old Romanian friend Mihai finally found the win of white's knight or a mate in 3 moves with 26.-,Qxd6! 27.exd6 (otherwise a piece has gone west),Re1+ 28.Kf2,Bh4#.|
|Oct-29-19|| ||seneca16: White might have done better to play 17. f5 and exchange pieces on e5, hoping eventually to play f6 breaking through. The white square bishop would not be weak since it would threaten to go to g6 or eventually e6. Just a thought.|
|Oct-30-19|| ||patzer2: White's decisive mistake appears to be the self-pin 22. Qd1? Nh4 -+ (-2.03 @ 30 ply, Stockfish 10).|
Instead, White gets reasonably good drawing chances with 22. Qf2 ⩱ (-0.61 @ 30 ply, Stockfish 10).
Earlier, White made a near decisive error with 21. c3?, allowing 21...dxc3 -+ (-1.90 @ 26 ply, Stockfish 10).
Instead, White could have secured a level or better game with 21. Bd2 (+0.36 @ 31 ply, Stockfish 10).
|Oct-30-19|| ||jith1207: <When did chrisowen start his written stuttering? > When he found Chess Enlightenment in that emarald site.|
|Oct-30-19|| ||patzer2: <Perhaps white should've re-took with the bishop, the sac exchange doesnt pay dividends.> When I initially looked at the position after 24...Nxf3, I thought the exchange sacrifice 25. Rxf3 Bxf3 -+ was the losing move.|
However, the computer indicates the position is also lost after 24...Bxf3 25. Bxf3 Rh4 -+ with a decisive Kingside attack.
