  offramp: It took me thirty second but I was up in the old gyrocopter.
Jan-20-14  BjarneNielsen: <morfishine> and <offramp>: Made me smile!
Jan-20-14  landogriffin: Van der Wiel playing the Van der Wiel Attack here - surely that's cheating?!

I would suggest it would have been an oversight on Timman's part to have expected anything else!

Small world... :)

Jan-20-14  whiteshark: <28.Rxa6+>, and that's it.

  Penguincw: Ah! Good way to start off the week. 1/1
Jan-20-14  goodevans: It was entertaining to play through the whole game, though somewhat surprising that Timman played on once he was two pieces down.
Jan-20-14  zb2cr: Rook sacrifice to end it. 28. Rxa6, bxa6; 29. Qxa6#.
Jan-20-14  morfishine: <goodevans> I was thinking the same thing when I went through the game: "Ok, Timman tosses a piece, there goes another...utto, he's about to lose another..."
Jan-20-14  evlozare: just love mondays, but white's up 2 pcs and if you didn't get this, better play checkers.
Jan-20-14  Doniez: Took to me 20 seconds and I was in a business meeting. Oh Monday, so lovely!
Jan-20-14  norami: Took me 20 seconds but I was worried about foreign policy.
Jan-20-14  patzer2: <l wazir: I think black was justified in continuing to play after giving up the ♗: after 22...Bxd4 he would be down only a ♙, but his ♔ is in a precarious situation.>

I was curious as to why Black didn't play 22...Bxd4, so I plugged it into Fritz.

According to Fritz 12's best line, Black is down a Bishop after 22...Bxd4 23. Bxd4 Qh6+ (worse is 23... Rxd4? 24. Qe6+! Rd7 25. Rc5+ Kb8 26. Qxd7 when Black is down a whole Rook and close to being mated) 24. Qxh6 gxh6 25. Rc5+ Kd7 26. Rxc4 (+ 4.96 @ 20 depth on a 2.1GHZ dual core Intel processor).

  chrisowen: Lade for one cut-off a8 down delve a6 every across,

  Once: It took me 20 seconds, but I will never get this stain out of my trousers without industrial-strength bleach.

Jan-20-14  Cheapo by the Dozen: Took me some 10s of seconds as well. It looked like the long diagonal came into play, until I checked the other corner of the board and noticed a queen in it.
Jan-20-14  Pnice: for all of us that do not have an avatar next to our name this problem is a 20 seconds or less problem even when drinking with friends...all the rest with silly pictures next to their name they take it too serious and therefore take longer than 20 seconds.

Stay thirsty my friends

Jan-20-14  JimNorCal: <moronovich>: "Always on the right side of a pint"

Tougher than today's puzzle, but I'll take a crack at it. The "right" side of a pint is for the person to be "outside" the pint. In other words, the pint is "inside" the person.

Jan-21-14  BOSTER: <Pnice silly pictures take longer than 20 sec.> After 51...qxf4 is draw .
Only 2 sec. , but not for you. Be nice< Pnice.>
