|Jun-26-14|| ||Nick46: A clean way to finish.|
|Jun-26-14|| ||morfishine: Nice puzzle, 21.Re7 seemed more natural, I didn't see 21.Nf5|
<18.Rxe8> Qxf2+ 19.Kh1 Qxh4 (or 19...Rxe8 20.Qg4+ Kf8 21.Qg7#)
20.Qd5+ cxd5 21.Bxd5#
|Jun-26-14|| ||PJs Studio: The game continuation is EXACTLY what I imagined looking at the position, but I can't honestly say I'd play it OTB ...because after 21.Nf5 I couldn't see it was a clear win. |
Great visualization by Savon.
|Jun-26-14|| ||Caissas Clown: Normally , I am all at sea and perish on the rocks of a Thursday. This however was very easy - soon as you see Bd5+ it is plain sailing.|
|Jun-26-14|| ||aldave: 18.Bd5 cxd5 19.Qxd5+ Rf7 20.Rxe8 Nf8 what now?|
|Jun-26-14|| ||Skylark: aldave: 21. Qg2+!|
|Jun-26-14|| ||CC0112358: 18. Bd5+ cxd5
19. Qxd5 Qf7
20. Qg5 Ng7
21. Re7 Qxf2
22. Kh1 Rf7
Black is toast
|Jun-26-14|| ||CC0112358: Oops! 21.....Nf5, interesting approach...works well too.|
|Jun-26-14|| ||aldave: @skylark got it! thanks whew nice!|
|Jun-26-14|| ||Keas: What about 21. Nf5 Ne5? That looks like a good defensive move to me|
I don't see a winning continuation for white after Ne5.

22 ♘h6+ ♔♕ fork and good night
|Jun-26-14|| ||backyard pawn: What am I missing? Can't Black defend with 19..., Rf7; 20. Rxe8, Nf8.|
|Jun-26-14|| ||Penguincw: Damn! I don't know if this is an easy Thursday or whatever, but I nearly got this. I got 18.Bd5+ cxd5 19.Qxd5+ Qf7 20.Qg5+ is as far as I got. I didn't see 20...Ng7, but mate's probably close. I also didn't see 19...Rf7, but 20.Rxe8+ looks good.|
|Jun-26-14|| ||zunard: < What am I missing? Can't Black defend with 19..., Rf7; 20. Rxe8, Nf8.> as skylark mention earlier 21. Qg2! wins the game|
|Jun-26-14|| ||newzild: I saw the game continuation, but couldn't see a win after 18. Bd5+ cxd5 19. Qxd5 Rf7 20. Rxe8+ Nf8! (Black's best chance). White is up a pawn, but Black threatens the Qxh4 and Qxf2+. Only when I played through the game did I spot 21. Qg2+!|
|Jun-26-14|| ||Oxspawn: I know it cannot be this easy but in my five minute break I cannot see what is wrong with |
18 Bd5+ cxb5
19 Qxb5+ Rf7
If Rf7 immediately, the white rook can still mate on e8. If 18……. Qf2, the bishop takes the queen.
These moves seem too straightforward for a Thursday- you don’t have to be a medium (“Is anyone there beyond the eight rank?”) to see them.
Black is bristling with intent, set on taking the f pawn or the knight but it looks as if the black knights cannot do anything immediately useful while the black bishop is blocked. The above moves are born out of desperation but this is what I would attempt over the board…. at least until my plans unravel. Let’s go and look.
|Jun-26-14|| ||Oxspawn: OK... right idea but did not spot black's improvements on my defence. Pretty sure I would not have seen my way through to the end after Qf7 (not f2 as I posted above).|
|Jun-26-14|| ||Chess Dad: I saw up to 19... Qf7.
But I didn't see the continuation from there, and I had to go read some of the previous comments to see why black resigned when he did.
It didn't yet look hopeless to me.
|Jun-26-14|| ||howlwolf: Doesn't 20 Nf5 instead of Qg5+ win as well. Qxd5 loses to Nh6 mate and if either .. Nf6, Nh6+ will pick up the queen with check if the black king goes to h8 and with the knight pinned if it goes to g7.|
|Jun-26-14|| ||BOSTER: < M.Hassan > <if 19...Rf7 20.Rxe8#>.
This is wrong 20...Nf8.
And because after 19.Qxd5+ black had two possibilities Rf7 and Qf7 I decided let's black to choose the move first.
<Pjs Studio: The game cont. ls Exactly what I imagined ... because after 21.Nf5 I couldn't see it was a clear win>.
|Jun-26-14|| ||kevin86: The focus of this one is g7. Black's knight is to be ravished by queen,bishop,and knight.|
|Jun-26-14|| ||attackingtheking: 20.Nf5 seems winning as well, with the threat of Nh6.|
|Jun-26-14|| ||cjgone: Nice puzzle! Didn't get all of the moves.|
|Jun-26-14|| ||Marmot PFL: First thought was 18 Re7 but Ndf6 and I couldn't make progress.|
The sequence 18 Bd5+ cd 19 Qd5+ Qf7 (Rf7 20 Rxe8+) 20 Qg5+ Ng5 21 Nf5 is forced and very strong. A well played game by white, while black seemed a little too aggressive.
|Jun-26-14|| ||numbersguy70: lesson of the game is to not be in a rush to grab weak pawns. they aren't going anywhere. black traded off his best defender, the dsb, just to grab an isolated pawn, and gave white's dsb a full pass. not good.|
