May-06-09  soberknight: Very similar to another game where Black plays 8...Na6 but makes the 9...Rb8 blunder, forgetting why he put the knight there in the first place. Look in "similar games."
Jan-27-14  yureesystem: This is so cruel but brilliant!!

  Phony Benoni: One look at the diagram, and it was easy to diagnose a Blackmar-Diemer. Where else could Black manage, within nine moves, to develop five pieces, win a pawn, and get posterized?
Jun-09-14  MountainMatt: Another poor shlub gets befuddled by some gambit play. I can relate all too well...10. Qxb8 Nxb8 11. Nxc7#
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: 10.Qxb8+ and 11.Nxc7#.
Jun-09-14  patzer2: Took me a minute to solve this Monday puzzle.

I suppose I didn't see it at a glance because 10. Qxb8+ Nxb8 11. Nxc7# combines the decoy, deflection, clearance and smothered mate theme in one simple two-move mate.

Jun-09-14  der623: <Phony Benoni> Bravo on a funny, keenly observed, and pithy comment.
Jun-09-14  weary willy: Or the alternative - giving a check first - 10.Nxc7+ kd8 11.Qxb8++ because the knight is pinned. . . . . . . Oh, hang on ...
Jun-09-14  mathlover: Ha ha
U have to be brilliant to be cruel in CHESS.
Jun-09-14  ThunderFire234: <weary willy> That doesn't work since the black queen is on b4 so after Nxc7 Kd8 Qb8 doesn't work due to Qxb8

  agb2002: White is one pawn down.

Black threatens 10... Rxb7 and 10... Bxd1.

If 10.Nxc7+ the black king can hide behind the knight on d7. Hence, 10.Qxb8+ Nxb8 11.Nxc7#.

Jun-09-14  morfishine: 10.Qxb8+ Nxb8 11.Nxc7#

  Oxspawn: Slightly easier than Sunday's position! The white knight shields the queen and then delivers the mortal strike.

10. Qxb8 Nxb8
11. Nxc7++
Move 8 (Nb5) is the killer blow. Black left defenceless and ultimately nameless.

Jun-09-14  Chess Dad: It took longer than it should. Perhaps 5 minutes.

10. Qxb8+ Nxb8 11. Nxc7#

Jun-09-14  Refused: Instant solution to anybody who has ever seen the Blackmer-Diemer gambit.

Qxb8+ Nxb8 Nxc7#

Jun-09-14  kolwax: its an excellent and tricky puzzle for a monday. monday puzzles rarely come with queen sacrifices.
Jun-09-14  zb2cr: A little harder to see than the typical Monday, because the mating pattern is unusual. 10. Qxb8+, Nxb8; 11.Nc7#.
Jun-09-14  Cheapo by the Dozen: This took me almost a minute, which makes it the trickiest Monday puzzle in a while. I kept getting distracted by Black's queen, apparently but not really hanging to a discovered attack.
Jun-09-14  Nick46: Blackmar-who? I deem this far too difficult for a Monday.

  whiteshark: According to CB Corr. Database 2013 it's:

[Event "corr"]
[Site "corr"]
[Date "1986.??.??"]
[White "Paschmann, S."]
[Black "Kurschat"]
[Result "1-0"]
[ECO "D00"]
[EventType "team (corr)"]

Jun-09-14  Castleinthesky: It took more of my brain (I had to use a fire extinguisher) than usual for a Monday to solve this one. A nice puzzle none-the-less.
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: I saw the sac immediately (it is Monday). I was looking for a rook mate and saw the knight mate instead.
Jun-09-14  Capacorn: sees that 8...Bxf3?? fails to 9.Nxc7#, yet he completely forgets this theme and plays 9...Rb8, falling to the very same idea. I can see this happening to me in a blitz game. "It's safe to do this now." lol
Jun-09-14  Refused: Well at that point black was already in deep trouble.

Blacks only try to keep the game going for a bit was

But that just prolongs the suffering.
Black winds up again three connected passed pawns on the Queenside at best.

Jun-09-14  BOSTER: According to< hedgehog> Diemer named each defense he encountered after the first person that played it against him . This is Halosar trap.
