Nov-22-04  Rank Amateur: I found the right move, but I still don't see the win. What comes after 34 ... Kg7. Trade Queens? Continue to attack the king? What is it?
Premium Chessgames Member
  patzer2: <Rank Amateur> After 34...Kg7 (34...Rxe8 35. QxQ wins), 35. Rxd8 wins.
Premium Chessgames Member
  patzer2: Black's 33...Qxd6?? was a blunder. The move he should have played was 33...Qxg5 = to , with a draw being the likely outcome.

Still today's puzzle solution 34. Re8+! is a good example of undermining an "overworked piece," since the hapless Black Rook on d8 cannot protect both the Queen and itself

Nov-22-04  enigmaticcam: 34. Re8+ makes the most sense. Why trade off the queens with 34. Qc3+ when you can win a queen for a rook?
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: a simple removal of the guard-next case!
Nov-22-04  Jatayu: why is 8...bd7 such a horrible move?
Nov-22-04  unsound: <the hapless Black Rook on d8 cannot protect both the Queen and itself> The rook is protecting itself? How extraordinary.
Nov-22-04  azaris: <unsound> What a useful concept! No longer will my pieces be "en prise", for they are protected by themselves.
Nov-22-04  BadTemper: Solved in .09 seconds.

  Sneaky: <why is 8...bd7 such a horrible move?> I wouldn't call it horrible, but of the four main choices 8...Nfd7, 8...Nbd7, 8...Kf8, and 8...Bd7, it's probably the worst. The response 9.e5! gives White a position that I would take as White without hesitation. This game illustrates White's central advantage in this line, and although 13.d6 seemed to work out very well I wonder if White had even stronger.
Nov-22-04  jkiipli: I don't see nothing wrong with 8...Bd7. Of course Im not a gm, but being honest white couldn't refute the move. Btw. it is common knowledge that In 1.d4 2.c4 games one of black's main problems is to develop his b8 bishop, so IN PRINCIPE trading it is not a bad move, but indeed this time it is a littel different because black's e6 pawn is gone and therefore the bishop is not that weak anymore. Correct me if Im missing something here.
Nov-22-04  ThomYorke: Some beautiful moves like this make me see good things in the world.
Nov-22-04  morphy234: Well, for once this one was easy! There's nothing special about the Re8+, it's been done in millions of games.
Premium Chessgames Member
  patzer2: <unsound> <azaris> You make a good point. The puzzle solution 34. Re8+ is indeed best classified as a simple deflection (removing the guard), as <kevin86> stated. So I've moving it from the "overworked piece" collection to the "deflection" collection.
Jan-17-06  notyetagm: The <fork-overload trick> strikes again.
Jan-17-06  notyetagm: Notice how the alternate capture of the d6-pawn also loses: 33 ... ♖xd6?? 34 ♖e8+ ♔g7 35 Px♕+ and the Black lady vanishes with check.
Sep-19-11  Patriot: 34.Re8+ is a very common trick. 34...Rxe8 35.Qxd6 or 34...Kg7 35.Rxd8. I briefly looked at 34.Re8+ Kg7 35.Qc3+? Qd4+.
Sep-19-11  lost in space: I love Mondays!

34. Re8+ and Black will lose material.

34...Kg7 35. Rxd8
34...Rxe8 35. Qxd6

Sep-19-11  sevenseaman: Its a Monday alright, but I am reluctant to sac my Q mechanically.

So 34. Re8+ 1-0.

Sep-19-11  zb2cr: 34. Re8+, and White obviously wins material. If 34. ... Rxe8; 35. Qxd6. If 34. ... Kg7; 35. Rxd8 and Black is stuck.
Sep-19-11  M.Hassan: "Very Easy" White to play 34.?
White is a pawn down.

34.Re8+ <if....Rxe8 35.Qxd6 and Queen is lost>

if......34.Kg7 35.Rxd8 Qxh2+
White is now Q+R+2pawns and Black is Q+4pawns.

Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: Obviously 34.Rd8+, but I think it warrants a little more analysis: 34...Kg7 35.Rxd8 Qxh2+ 36.Ke1 and the king heads for c2, where ...Qc5+ will be met by Qc3+.
Sep-19-11  mw8286: yay for mondays

  al wazir: Why didn't black play 29...Qxd6 ? It apparently gives black a winning two-♙ advantage. Yes, it loses the same way as 33...Qxd6, but that didn't stop him from playing it four moves later.

With 33...Qxd6 Black could hope for some miracle perpetual check after 34.Re8+ Kg7 35.Rxd8 Qxh2+. Not much of a hope, I grant you, especially since it's a correspondence game.
