Jul-17-04  nikolaas: Maybe this is an idea for a puzzle. 27. white to win.
Sep-10-04  urtley: Nice play by white. if ... PxN then QxB++ or if ... NxQ then Nc7++
Sep-10-04  iron maiden: Apparently so. Black has no satisfactory defense against Qxd7. If 27...Rd8 then 28. Nc7#.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: I looked at variations after 27.Qd6,Rc8; 28.Re5+,Kd8; 29.Nc6+ (or Bb6+), but this is much better.

  Gypsy: One those times I was again reminded about switching order or moves: I looked at 27.Qxd7+ Kxd7 28.Ne6 first, but that does not work (28...Kc8). After the permutation of the move order, all works fine however.
Sep-10-04  Shadout Mapes: I did not get this, spending all my time looking at 27.Qxd7+ Kxd7 28.Ne6+ or 28.Nb5+.
Sep-10-04  erikcu: I also looked at 27.Qd6 and missed this, I briefly held Ne6 as a candidate, but errantly ruled it out.
Sep-10-04  BeautyInChess: I also thought the answer was Qd6 and it really is a pretty good solution. White will be up 11 pawns according to Fritz.
Sep-10-04  kaptajn4: I saw 27. Nb5, which is mate in 7. 27.Ne6 is mate in 5.
Sep-10-04  patzer2: Not quite sure how to classify the 27. Ne6!! solution to today's puzzle. But it looks like a "clearance" move, which creates five potential mate threats (all of which can't be parried) at once. Note that 27. Ne6!! clears the d-file, allowing the White Rook at d1 to provide essential support to the mating attack (e.g. 27...fxe6 28. Qxd7#).
Sep-10-04  masterwojtek: <Shadout Mapes>, <Gypsy> : I also looked at those variations but eventually concluded that they dont give white anything..

Moral: You have to be persistant in chess

Sep-10-04  Papablanca: I was also obsessed by the queen sac... Don't shame to have missed this one. <patzer2> How do get to not less than FIVE potential mate threats?
Sep-10-04  pinakin8: With move 27.Bc5 black's King is surrounded, yet he does nothing to safeguard it.
Sep-10-04  RisingChamp: Well I saw the move ne6 and saw it works in abt ten seconds.What I dont see is the five mate threats after ne6.I only see qd7# as one threat.Am I going blind?
Sep-10-04  Minor Piece Activity: You missed Nc7# if black takes Q, but that still makes 2. Maybe patzer2 meant 5 main variations, not 5 threats? Probably I missed something too.
Sep-10-04  egsmith: I was going through the game and was initially confused by 16 ... Bd6. Why give up the g7 pawn when black just went through all the trouble of trying to protect it?

I think this is the right conclusion. If 17 Qxg7 then Be5 and white has to leave g7, the queen doesn't get access to f6, and useless h-file rook can become the g-file terror. In this light 17 f4 makes a lot more sense. It keeps the bishop off e5 and g7 stays weak.

Sep-10-04  marco78: This is one of the few i solved.
Initially analyzed 27.Qd7 to find out 27.Ne6!!
Not even considered 27.Qd6
Sep-10-04  JustAFish: I saw Nb5, which eventually mates and has the same theme- knight moves to unexpected square- so, I consider the puzzle "done". The key is that if either the Knight or the Queen is taken on the next move it is instant mate. The only way to stave off mate with Ne6!! or Nb5! is a hopeless series of interpositions, which simply lose material.
Sep-10-04  Ferdelance: I did not get this one. Sacing the queen is interesting but after 29...kb5 there is not a winning continuation.

27.qxd7,kxd7 28.ne6+,kc6 (if 28...ke8 then 29.nc7#) 29. rd6+, kb5(if kb7 then 30.rd7+,ka8 31.nc7+,ka7 32.nb5+,ka8 33.ra7#)

Sep-10-04  JustAFish: Maybe black can hold on a bit longer with 25 ... Bxc5 26 Qxa8 0-0. Any thoughts?
Sep-10-04  RonB52734: <JustAFish> Interesting question. No time to look at this thoroughly right now, but after 25...bxc5, 26.Qc6+ still looks strong for white, with similar themes and threats as in the game.
Sep-10-04  patzer2: Here are five mates after 27. Ne6!!

(1) 27...fxe6 28. Qxd7#

(2) 27...bxc5 28. Qxd7#

(3) 27...Rd8 28. Nc7#

(4) 27...BxQ 28. Nc7#

(5) 27...Rb7 28. Qxb7 Bxe6 29. Qc6+ Bd7 30. Qxd7#

Sep-10-04  Hoozits: Does Nb5 accomplish the same thing?
Sep-10-04  The King Returns: I can't believe I got this one...and under 30 seconds. Even the Monday puxzzles take me longer than that. And I'm not sure I've ever gotten a Friday puzzle before. Maybe I'm actually learning something and I don't even know it! Or maybe there's just something about this position that appeals to me.

  Gypsy: <Does Nb5 accomplish the same thing?> A key difference between 27.Nd6 and 27.Nb5 is that while after 27.Nd6 the two mating threads, 28.Qxd7# and 28.Nc7#, can not be both stopped, after <27.Nb5 Be7> Black king can retreat to f8 and there is no immediate mate.
