|Mar-17-13|| ||KnightPusher: Barely guessed Re8+ but (as I usually just guess) didn't fully carry it out. What a sweet move Ng5 is.|
|Mar-17-13|| ||morfishine: <Dionysius1> Yes, on your comment: <It's even better than you say because 17...Ng5 18 Qe7 is mate immediately. The N guard fore7 has been distracted> I realized that too late to delete the post! No matter, Black is deader than a mackerel|
FYI: I like fishing too, but the username is a conglomeration of morphy, fischer and alekhine...I wonder if any of them fished?
|Mar-17-13|| ||BlackSheep: Today's POTD would have been harder if Kingscrusher (of youtube fame) hadnt done a video of this game in the last week . (coincidence or conspiracy , who can say ?)|
|Mar-18-13|| ||al wazir: <bharat123>: Thanks. I don't feel too ashamed that I failed to find that myself.|
But you left out one line: <15...Bxe7 16. dxe7> Nxe7 17. Qxe7 Rf7 (17...Qb6 18. Qe5+ Kg8 19. Bh6; 17...Qd8 18. Qxd8 Rxd8 19. Bxd8) 18. Qf6+ Kg8 19. Bh6.
|Apr-11-14|| ||yureesystem: Black cannot take on 15...Nxe7? 16.Qxe7+ Kg8 17.Ng5 < mate soon> 17...h6 18 Qxf7 mate. GM.Rossolimo conduct this attack well against the uncastle king.|
|Mar-29-15|| ||sachistu: I suspect this was a casual or off-hand game as Romanenko and his wife gave a musical presentation following the Bad Gastein tournament (Bad Gastein being a spa town in Salzburg province.) See Wiener Schachzeitung, 1948, p4.|
Wiener Schachzeitung describes Romanenko as a chess and concert master. He was not a participant in the Bad Gastein tournament (though Rossolimo was). Apparently, this is Ivan Romanenko, who immigrated to the US in 1949, and whose death was mentioned in the Sharon (PA) Herald (and other sources).
|Sep-28-15|| ||kevin86: The only way that black can avoid mate from the white knight is to stop it with the knight...after which white's queen will mate.|
|Sep-28-15|| ||Dr. J: It's easy to be dazzled by the very beautiful winning variation starting with 13 Re8+, but is it really a faster win than, say, 13 Qe2, analyzed by <patzer2>, <FSR>, and others? Black could have bailed out with 16...Kf8 17 Bxa5 Bxb2, and White, ahead only Q v. R+B (and a large lead in development) still has a slog ahead of him.|
|Nov-16-15|| ||transpose: This has got to be one of my fav games of all time. Simply a beautiful miniature. Bravo Rossolimo!|
|Apr-02-16|| ||tanu123: Fantastic!|
|Feb-23-19|| ||Penguincw: Missed the in-between move, Bg5. (well, wrong order)|
|Feb-23-19|| ||Walter Glattke: Option 10.-Kf8 11.Ng5 Nh6 or 11.Bg5, also difficult.|
|Feb-23-19|| ||pdxjjb: Apparently this game was a daily puzzle back in 2013. But that first time, the puzzle was at move 12 or 13. |
Today 2019-02-23 the puzzle is 10. ?
This is problematic. Certainly 10. Nd6+ is a move that most players would consider. And if black captures the N, fireworks can ensue.
But what if black plays the quieter 10 ... Kf8? I couldn't find a "solve the puzzle" type combination after 10 ... Kf8.
Engine confirms there isn't one. Nothing really puzzle-quality with any immediate win of material. Sure, black's position is terrible, but that's not your typical puzzle ending.
Engine says white's best continuation is 11. Ne4 b6. with 11. Nxc8 Rxc8 second best.
|Feb-23-19|| ||agb2002: I know this game.|
|Feb-23-19|| ||bubuli55: Amazing!|
|Feb-23-19|| ||Walter Glattke: Also Nxf7 seems to be good for white after 10.-Kf8 11.Nxf7 Kxf7 12.Ng5+ Ke8 13.Qf3 Nh6 14.e6 dxe6 15.Nxe6 Bxe6 16.Bxh6 Bxh6 17.Rxe6 Qc7 18.Rae1 Bf8 19.Qf6 Rg8 20.Rxe7+ Bxe7 21.Rxe7+ Kd8 22.Rxh7+ Kc8 23.Rxc7+ Kxc7 24.Qf7+. White stands better then.|
|Feb-23-19|| ||malt: Had 10.Nd6+ ed6 11.Bg5! Qb6 12.ed6+ Kf8
Nice game !
|Feb-23-19|| ||Grandma Sturleigh: Stockfish prefers 13. Qe2 (mate in 17) over 13. Re8 because White has no quick mate after 16...Kf8 in the game line.|
|Feb-23-19|| ||emelman: after 11 Bg5 it seems that 11...Bf6 puts up more resistance than the game Qa5. 12. Bxf6 Nxf6 13. exf6 Kf8 what's next? Or 11. exf6 Kf8 12.Qd2 h6 is there a forcing continuation?|
|Feb-23-19|| ||master8ch: If Black had played Qb6 instead of Qa5, he'd have 17...Qxd6 in the final position, allowing 18.Nxf7ch to win his queen. But after 19...KxN, 20.Qe8 Nf6 21.Qf7 Rg8, all Black's kingside pieces guard each other, and if Black can manage to connect his rooks without further loss of material, he'd have 2 rooks and 3 minor pieces versus queen and rook, and he'd still be alive.|
|Feb-23-19|| ||thegoodanarchist: The Whit pawn on d6 was worth more than a piece! Beautiful game.|
I reviewed the game from move 1 and guessed the first move of the puzzle correctly. After that, I just enjoyed the beauty.
|Feb-23-19|| ||wtpy: Got it mostly, buy missed 13 Qe8+. While not as flashy 13 Qe2 wins decisively.|
|Feb-23-19|| ||Fusilli: What a beautiful puzzle.|
|Feb-23-19|| ||drollere: Nd6+ was pretty obvious because the discovered check (pxd6+) and Bg5 are so harsh. however i couldn't find anything after Kf8 Nc4 (or Nxc8) that seemed a clear edge for white.|
|Feb-23-19|| ||King Harvest: Beautiful puzzle from start to finish... the start is so easy, too, but I certainly couldn't see this one thru to the end.|
