Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-19-06  chessplayer95a: Why did both (G)M's fail to spot
the easy mate in one at move 17?
(17 Qf8#) This game was also analysed
by IM D. Martin on his dvd the abc
of the Ruy Lopez. Martin also failed
to mention the mate in one. I asked
myself; Am I overlooking something, then I decided to check the position with fritz. Fritz agrees that it is a mate in one. Is castling allowed when being check? I think not. So mate it is. The game must have been a short blitz game... Is there anyone with ideas concering this subject?
Aug-19-06  chessplayer95a: Is it true that chess GM's occasionly fail to spot simple tactics or even a mate in one?
Aug-19-06  bane77: It's not true. It's a mistake in transcription, probably 16...Qe7 was played. 7...f6 is very strange move and a mistake, f6 is natural square for knight. After 15.fxg5 black was lost.

  MoonlitKnight: 7...f6 is not a mistake, it's the move recommended by theory. The whole opening is rather suspect, though.
Feb-25-08  mack: I suspect 17...Qe7 was played in this one.
Jun-01-10  Archswindler: 17. Qe7 may have been the move played, but Martin certainly seems to think it is Qd7, because he later discusses 19... Re7 as a possibility, which would be impossible if the queen were already on that square. So, even if Pavlovic and Agdestein didn't miss a mate in one, Martin surely must have.
Nov-28-17  LA MAN: I see no mate in one on the 17th. If the queen goes to f8. Qxq. What are you talking about? Are you blind and fritz?

  Sally Simpson: Previous comments indicate originally the score showed this position with White to play.

Then it is mate in one. The score was later corrected with Black playing 16....Qc7-e7 instead of 16...Qc7-d7
