Jun-08-05  ataturk: rf8 nice
Jun-08-05  Hesam7: First I tried 22 ♖xh7+ but then saw 22 ♖f8+. Nice puzzle.
Jun-08-05  Eric Xanthus: I got sidetracked looking at 22.Rf8+ Kg7 23.Qf7+ Kh6 24.Rxe8 etc. Greed got the better of me, I suppose--especially since it looks like black has something dangerous in store.

  Sneaky: <I got sidetracked looking at 22.Rf8+ Kg7 23.Qf7+ Kh6> Me too, except that I continued with 24.Bxe5 Rxf8 25.Qg7+ and then things got very murky. The real brilliancy here is 23.Rg8+!!

  Marius: 20.Rf8+ Kg7 21.Bxe5+
- Rxe5 22.Rd7+ Kh6 23.Rxh7+!Kxh7 24.Qg8+
Kh6 25 Qh8+ Kg5 26.Qh4#
- Kxf8 22.Rf1+ Ke7 23.Rf7+ Kd8 24. Qd5#
- Kh6 22.Qh4#
Jun-08-05  chesswonders: Mate in 2 after black's 25th move. I felt 22. ♕h4 also wins. But 22. ... ♗g7 seems to be saving and probably even winning for black, because of the pawn in b2.
Premium Chessgames Member
  jahhaj: 23. ♖g8+ is a good move but White has more straightforward wins, e.g. 23. ♕g8+ ♔h6 24. ♖xe8. I don't think you have to have seen ♖g8+ or <Marius'> analysis to have solved this puzzle.
Jun-08-05  lopium: Too hard to solve, I was in other ways... But I didn't consider this one, which is the best.
Jun-08-05  jamesmaskell: Got it. Tricky one though.

  Richard Taylor: Calculated all the moves here pretty quickly - it is a nice deflection sac - I saw the Rg8 check - on a good day I wouldn't miss this OTB -
Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: Instead of 10..e5 10..d5 looks stronger - e5 too easily leads to Black weakneses on the white squares and on d6 - black needs to counter punch in the centre..I analysed it a bit and Black gets some compensation for any pawn loss (eg sometimes a B on d4) - unless a stronger player can tell me what is wrong with the move - but b5 by Black is another idea...
Jun-08-05  The beginner: I thought it was 22 Qh4. It should win also altough it is more complicated.

22 Qh4 ..Bg7
23 Rxg7 ..Kxg7
24 Be5+ ..Rxe5
25 Rd7+ ..Kg8
26 Qxh7 ..Kf8
27 Qh8 mate.

Jun-08-05  wavershadow: What if 22.Bxe5+?
There are two variations for black.

Variation 1:22...Rxe5 23.Rxh7+ Kxh7
24.Rd7+(24...Re7 does not affect the result)24...Kh8(if 24...Kh6 25.Qh4#)25.Qh4+ Kg8 26.Qh7+ Kf8 27.Qf7#

Variation 2:22...Kg8 23.Rf1+ Re6 24.Qxe6#

Please teach me if I made any mistake...

Jun-08-05  Eric Xanthus: wavershadow, you lost track of a rook in your line. In variation 1, black can play 24..Kh6 25.Qh4+ Rh5.
Jun-08-05  DanRoss53: I thought 22. Bxe5+ Rxe5 23. Rxh7+ Kxh7 24. Qh4+ Rh5 25. Rd7+ Kh6 26. Qf4+ Rg5 27. h4 but was obviously being completely oblivious to the passed pawn. (If not for the passer, 27... Qxc5 would give Black the advantage anyway) 27. Qf4+ instead of 27. h6 would lead to a draw-by-repetition.
Jun-08-05  wavershadow: Oh!It was stupid of me to make such a silly mistake.thanks for teaching me.. If than,white would totally lose as
he sacrificed his rock with no purpose
and facing the threat of ...b1=Q+.
The only thing that he can do is to draw by repeating Qh4+ and Qf4+. I am definately wrong than...
Jun-08-05  alexandrovm: 22. Rf8+, black can't take because if RxR then 23. BxB+ Rf6 (only move) 24. BxR++

now, if 22. ...Kg7 then 23. Qg7++

Jun-08-05  alexandrovm: well, my mistake on my second variation, if 23. Qg7+ the king can simply scape to h6 and there is no more checks. But I think it stills win the game...
Jun-08-05  Jimzovich: This one had a sort of "double deflection" if you will. I only saw 22. ...♖xf8 then 23.♗xe5 #. Teaches me a good lesson here, if everything is not in order my opponent could have escaped!
Jun-08-05  duboy77: Where is the game after 22. Bxe5 Rxe5 23. Qh4
Jun-08-05  brainzugzwang: <wavershadow> and <Eric Xanthus> I was looking at 22. Bxe5 too, and I think it also leads to a win. After 22... Rxe5, 23. Rd7 followed shortly by Rxh7+ sets up a mating net, and I think the White king can escape Black's checks — emphasis on the word "think."
Jun-08-05  DanRoss53: <duboy77> 22. Bxe5 Rxe5 23. Qh4? fails to 23... Qxc5+ 24. Kh1 Qc6+ 25. Kg1 Qb6+ 26. Kh1 h5

<brainzugzwang> 22. Bxe5 Rxe5 23. Rdd7? fails to 23... b1=Q (which is the same mistake I initially made...see my previous post)

  kevin86: To me,the first move was easy,but I missed the sac at g8.Kruppa played some good music on this one.

Chess openings seem to have very unusual names-that sound like titles to European novels---This one, however,has a title that sounds like a Friends episode:"The one with the four pawns". lol

Jun-08-05  YouRang: I also found 22 Rf8+ followed by 23 Qf7+, which ultimately wins at least a rook and leaves white on the attack. It looked 'winning enough' to me.
Jun-08-05  Shokwave: I blew this one: I first looked at Rxh7+, then, when that didn't pan out, tried BxB+...I thought it won, but as others have pointed out, it leads only to a perpetual.
