Dec-19-18  saturn2: I saw 37...Qf3+

38..Nxf3 Nd3# but overlooked

38..Kxe1 Rh1+ 39. Rg1 Rxg1#

Dec-19-18  Walter Glattke: Option: 37.Nc3+ 38.Nxc3 Qf3+ 39.Kxd1 Rh1+ 40.Rg1 Rxg1#
Dec-19-18  Walter Glattke: Sorry, mistake, no Nc3.
Dec-19-18  cocker: Could have started a move or two earlier.
Dec-19-18  malt: Gone for 37...Nd3+ 38.N:d3 Qf3+ 39.K:e1 Rh1+ 40.Rg1 R:g1#
Dec-19-18  saturn2: <malt> White has 38 Rxd3.
Dec-19-18  AlicesKnight: After a little thought (most of my thoughts are puny), 37....Qf3+. If the N takes, ....Nd3# - if 38.Kxd1 then ...Rh1+ followed by mate. Let's see - yes. A nice concept; I wonder how far ahead ED saw it.
Dec-19-18  Walter Glattke: Option with Nd3 still shown by malt.
Dec-19-18  malt: <saturn2> White has 38 Rxd3. Yes I had
38.R:d3 Re2+ 39.K:e2 Q:g2+ 40.Kd1 Rh1+
41.Qe1 R:e1+ 42.K:e1 B:e4
Dec-19-18  thegoodanarchist: Got it! And what a beautiful finish it was.

In fact, one might say that the finish was enDearing.

Dec-19-18  saturn2: good analysis <malt>
Dec-19-18  malt: <saturn2> Thanks.
Dec-19-18  whiteshark: Deadly double check (ddc)

  Jimfromprovidence: FWIW 37...Ne4+ works as well. In fact there is a very nice puzzle after 37... Ne4+ 38 Kxe1.

Black to play and win.

  Penguincw: Ah, there's the queen sac I've been looking for all week.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Domdaniel: Not too difficult as a puzzle, but what a beautiful mate! It almost eclipses the Queen sac that tees it up.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Jimfromprovidence: 37...Rhe3 also deserves a solid look.

Black threatens 38...Ne4#, so is it curtains for white in this position?

  Domdaniel: The game may be far from flawless, but the final mating pattern is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen.
Dec-19-18  Whitehat1963: Couldn’t find the right sequence.
Dec-19-18  PJs Studio: That’s kinda nasty
Dec-20-18  KingsideBishop: Sorry to say I missed this one!
It is a fairly simple mating pattern; I’ve got some work to do!

I went down a totally more complicated, less productive and drawing at best 37. ...Nd3+ line.

Dec-20-18  areknames: <The game may be far from flawless, but the final mating pattern is one of the most beautiful I've ever seen.>

Indeed. Lovely game to play through though.

Dec-20-18  areknames: White's attack on the K side is way too optimistic and gets adequately punished by his opponent's amassment of pieces in the centre. Very instructive.

  Richard Taylor: Yes. The Q sac and the double check mate is great.

Edward Dearing wrote a book on the Nimzo-Indian which I used about 2009 on. It and other things helped my rating to improve at the time. Dearing writes well in it. It was published by Everyman in 2005.
