  tpstar: White teaches Black a valuable Laesson.

Enterprising opening, although I'm not sure White has enough for the piece as of 12. 0-0 Kg7. After 13. c4!? Black should keep lines closed with 13 ... de (threatening 14 ... Qxd4+ getting Queens off) 14. d5 Ne7 15. Be5 Neg8 defending the Kingside. The subsequent Queen sacrifice was magnificent, using the Bishops to sideline Black's King, but the Queening combination is based on deflecting the Bc8 from covering f5, otherwise Rf5+ is decisive: 18 ... Bxb7 19. Rf5+ Kxh4 20. g3+ Kh3 21. Rh5+ mates, or 19 ... Kg6 20. h5+ Kh7 21. Rf8+ mates. At the end, 25. Re5+ will win the Queen.

Jan-07-07  Rubenus: 15. dxc6!! is a brilliant move. Would be a nice Sunday puzzle.

  perfidious: <tpstar> Tony, see the game Fuhrwerk-A Shaw, where I played 13....Nxe4, which is the move recommended by Glazkov and Tseitlin. In my research for that game, I also concluded that Konikowski's 15....Re8 was best and feel I missed a winning line, but even nine years on, I'm not sure where I went wrong.
Jul-15-11  Beautiful.LMS: This is a nice queen sacrifice by Laesson, and I think <Rubenus> is right. Make this a Sunday puzzle.

  Jonathan Sarfati: <tpstar:> Your idea of 13... dxe4 was tried in I Glazkov vs V Soloviev, 1975 I think even if the idea in the game of 15... Rf8 was combined with yours of Ng8, it would still be hard to hold. white can play Rf4 then Raf1, while Black can't untangle from the pin.

  Jonathan Sarfati: Black might like to try 8...f3 to keep that file closed temporarily while White spends time dealing with that. This ancient game of mine comes up under Opening Exporer here even though the position arose by transposition: A F Ker vs J Sarfati, 1984
