Jun-18-07  patzer2: For today's puzzle solution 6. exf6 leads to more than "you take mine and I take yours with equality," since 7. f7+ deflects the King (removing the guard) to win the Queen.

  fm avari viraf: In Chess, one must first learn the Traps & Pitfalls so one doesn't be the victim. This one is a good example how White wins the Black's Queen with a tiny pawn giving check.
Jun-18-07  Billy Ray Valentine: If you ask me, black is busted after his 4th move. When white plays 5. e5, he's gaining a sizeable advantage. Unless I'm missing something.
Jun-18-07  Billy Ray Valentine: And if you ask me, black's first move looks questionable.
Jun-18-07  Infohunter: < mkrk17: Actually, i wouldnt call this a case of loose piece or overtaxed defender. Because, the queen is not loose (it has the king next to it), and the king cannot exactly be called overtaxed.>

Well, the overtaxing is indirect. After White captures the N, Black cannot feasibly capture the B, since that opens the d file and thus has White's Q attacking Black's Q. The overtaxing part comes in when White plays 7.f7+; Black's K cannot defend himself (i.e., get out of check) _and_ maintain his defense of the Black Q at the same time. I suppose it would have been more accurate to say that Black's P at d5 was pinned, as the move 6...dxc4 opened the line that enabled White's crushing combination. It would have been relatively better for Black, therefore, not to capture the White B and so be "only" a piece down. But that were virtually tantamount to resigning, so maybe Black wanted to end it quickly.

Jun-18-07  Crowaholic: <realbrob: If you try and look for Juergen Henningsen in Google, you'll find out that Juergen Henningsen seems to have died in 1983!>

No wonder he lost against Kamsky in 1993. After lying in a coffin for 10 years, with no chessboard, he must have been out of practice.

Kamsky vs J Henningsen, 1993

Jun-18-07  beginner64: Bummer, I didn't even come close to solving this.

Well - some Monday for me.

Now I am sure, it will not be 7/7 for me this week.

Jun-18-07  Slink: <mkrk17> <i actually would not laugh at guys who play 1.d3. I should know. A few players on open with 1.b3 and 1.g3 , and with 1... b6 as black. And they eventually manage to defeat me. These guys manage to wriggle out of all opening difficulties, and then punch me in the middlegame.

Anyway, someday, when i'm a great positional player, i'll be able to punish these punks...>

I admire your honesty, and empathize. Happens to me all the time, too. To be thrown off a standard opening when your opponent plays some weird move can be disastrous, especially in rapid.

Jun-18-07  MaxxLange: I think it's an amateur misconception to assume that odd-looking stuff must lose by force. This is how the 1. f3 2. Kf2 guys score points online, people try to refute it by throwing everything at them right away.

and 1. b3, 1. g3 & 1. d3 certainly don't merit that sort of response. nothing at all wrong with playing a KID/QID/Pirc etc. with a move in hand.

Jun-18-07  MaxxLange: the paradox is that the extra tempo is often not as useful as you would think.

I think there's a chapter about that idea in a Dvoretsky book, and I think I have seen other writers explore it

Jun-18-07  ruelas007: what tournament was this? i dont belive that in Dortmund Sparkenssen players with a short knowledge of openings like this 2 are allowed to play
Jun-18-07  lipschutz: Cute puzzle! I saw that, if the Black pawn on d5 and Knight on f6 were missing, White could win the Queen with Bf7+. Then it took me a few minutes to see that there actually was a way to force the King away from the Queen like this!
Jun-18-07  patzer2: Black's mistake was 5...d5?? Instead 5...Nfd7 6. Nf3 gives Black active counter chances with only a slight White advantage.
Jun-18-07  PositionalTactician: This is easy!

Jun-23-07  nummerzwei: @ruelas 007:

Like every chess festival, the Dortmund Sparkassen also has open tournaments. This game is from the B group
(referring to the stronger A-open, not to the masters tournament)

Jun-24-07  ruelas007: <nummerzwei>: Understood pal.
Apr-09-09  WhiteRook48: 3...d6?
Oct-08-09  WhiteRook48: maybe black was afraid of 5...Nd7 6 e6
Apr-02-10  whiteshark: huh

Keyboard alert!

Meanwhile, Borik seems to have played the opening like NN.
