Nov-01-05  mikejaqua: I got stuck on Rxd6, which I believe wins the rook. But why win a rook when you can win a game?

Nov-01-05  acirce: Vukcevich is one of the greatest chess problem composers of all time. Looks like he composed a helpmate here.
Nov-01-05  RookFile: Well, I give www.chessgames.com
all the credit. Took me like 2 seconds
to come with ....Rxh2+. All the drills
from this week help!
Nov-01-05  RookFile: I played over this game, and was really impressed with black's play. This game bears a striking resemblence to this more famous example:

R Byrne vs Fischer, 1967

Nov-01-05  ughaibu: So this is where Fischer pinched the idea from.
Nov-01-05  JoeWms: It took me a couple of minutes to work out the deflection idea and solve the puzzle. But, the game itself: It was a real biche! I think I guessed wrong on 99.9% of the moves. Seemed that way, at least. I'm gonna hit this game again later -- after I get a nap.
Nov-01-05  aginis: 32.♘c7+ !! ♖xc7 33.♕xd6 ♕b8 34.♖fd3! ♗xf6 35.♕xf6 anyone see a defense for black?
Nov-01-05  aginis: 32.♘c7!! ♔f8! 33.♘e6+!! ♔g8 (33...fe?? 34.♕xd6+ ♔g8 35.f7+ ♔h7 36.f8=♕ ♖xf8 37.♕xf8 ) 34.♘xg5
Nov-01-05  chesscrazy: pretty easy puzzle
Nov-01-05  aginis: 34.♘xg6
A.34...fg? 35.♖xg6 - 36.♕f3
B.34...♖h6! 35.♖xf6 ♖xg6 36.♖xg6 fg 37.cb
Nov-01-05  dakgootje: cant say i had much problems with this one...as it was the first thing i looked at...And after that the queen check was obvious and after that 37. ...♖h8 was the first thing i looked at
Nov-01-05  FAME: I got this is in about 30 seconds, easy because of the lack of other good moves.
Nov-01-05  aginis: 35.♕f3! ♖f4! 36.♖xf4 ef 37.♕xf4 (37...bc? 38.♕h4+ f6 [38...♔d7 39.♖xd6+ ♔xd6 40.♕xd8+ ;38...♔e8 39.♕h8+ ♔e7 40.♕h4+ =] 39.♕h7+ ♔e6 40.♕xg6 )

35...♖h7 36.c5! dc? 37.♖xd8 ♔xd8 38.♕d3+ - 39.♕d6! =

Nov-01-05  aginis: my hypothesis white was

A.Drunk

B.High

C.Lying about his rating

D.Having a stroke

E. Had less than a minute left to make it to move 40

F.Throwing the game

G.Thought he was playing checkers

H.All of the above

Nov-01-05  MaxxLange: <Topaluv> You can't compare Yahoo ratings to anything, not even other Yahoo ratings.

The main thing to remember about estimated ratings is that"I play at about a 1700 or 1800 level" means "I am (or would be) rated about 1200".

Nov-01-05  MaxxLange: Me, I'm 1642, but I play at a much higher level...
Nov-01-05  CAPPYJAK: vulcavich was suffering from a rare disease called phytosimpholotomea which causes brain matter to seep into the inner ear. may be fatal.
Nov-01-05  alexandrovm: the rook is sacrificed on h2, the queen comes to f2 with a check (if not is mate in one), the other rook enters with a decicive check on h8, and is the end for the white team...
Nov-01-05  alexandrovm: <aginis: my hypothesis white was

A.Drunk

B.High

C.Lying about his rating

D.Having a stroke

E. Had less than a minute left to make it to move 40

beware! This could happen to you too

Nov-01-05  Halldor: The second row is badly protected, the white king can't protect h2 and f2 at the same time, so 35...♖xh2! and mate is inevitable.
Nov-01-05  yataturk: This week's theme... deflect, trap, mate
Nov-01-05  jmelton: Black missed 16...Nxe4, opening the long diagonal with a pretty dangerous-looking attack.
Nov-02-05  alexandrovm: <jmelton: Black missed 16...Nxe4, opening the long diagonal with a pretty dangerous-looking attack.> can u give me the line you are thinking next?
Feb-12-06  jmelton: I guess the line I was thinking of, 16...Nxe4! 17Nxe4 Bxg5 doesn't quite work because of 18Nxd6+ and after Black takes the knight, the b7 bishop is hanging and White regains the piece with a slight edge, according to Fritz. However, after 17...Bxe4! Black has won a free pawn since White's bishop on g5 is hanging, too.
