Dec-15-13  Eduardo Bermudez: Beautiful chess game !!
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: 36.Qxg6+ hxg6 37.Rh8+ Kf7 38.Ng5#
Jun-13-17  Chizoad: 32. Nh5! is a very nice move:

32. Nh5 gxh5 33. gxh5 Rf8 34. Rg1+ Kf7 35. Rg7+ and the black queen falls.

Beautiful and smooth attack from white here.

  al wazir: Where's the win after 32...gxh5 ? If 33. Rxh5, then 33...Qf7 34. Rg5+ Bg6 35. f4 Ne7. Now what?
Premium Chessgames Member
  radtop: Masterful game. The pawn on a5 was poisoned as well.
Premium Chessgames Member
  al wazir: Never mind, I see: 33. gxh5, followed by Rg1+.
Jun-13-17  stst: Nice but tricky finish... Q-sac but not Monday!! 36.QxB+ hxQ (forced, nothing else helps, even Qg7 got crushed by QxQ#) 37.Rh8+ Kf7 (only sq.====> but watch out right here!!) 38.Ng5# ==> such a nice position just made for this configuration, the K has no more escape sq.

IF 38.Rh7+ looking for RxQ will be a BIG Mistake, for then KxN , RxQ and KxR... White has almost nothing left!!

  agb2002: The material is identical.

Black threatens Q(R)xe6.

White can deliver mate in three: 36.Qxg6+ hxg6 37.Rh8+ (37.Ng5 Qg7) 37... Kf7 38.Ng5#.

Jun-13-17  Cheapo by the Dozen: I had more trouble with this than I should have, for a very stupid reason: I forgot that the recapturing pawn would be on g6, and hence that g6 wasn't a flight square.
Jun-13-17  diagonalley: <cheapo> ... i'm soooo glad that you made the same oversight as yours truly... DOH!
Jun-13-17  AlicesKnight: The way in is blasted by 36.Qxg6+ - ....hxg6; 37.Rh8+ Kf7; 38.Ng5#. Let's see - they seem to agree.
Jun-13-17  Walter Glattke: Queen sac, forced mate.
Jun-13-17  get Reti: I made the same mistake as both Cheapo by the Dozen and diagonalley, thinking that the king could escape on g6. It's a pretty strong optical illusion!
Jun-13-17  morfishine: <36.Qxg6+> forces mate: 36...hxg6 37.Rh8+ Kf7 and now <38.Ng5#>


Jun-13-17  malt: 36.Q:g6+ hg6 37.Rh8+ Kf7 38.Ng5#
Jun-13-17  whiteshark: Like some previous posters, I also had to realize that <square g6> is not available as a flight square as thought in my initial calculation.
Jun-13-17  Carlos0012358: Mate is three!
Jun-13-17  saturn2: I solved this one but not at first glimpse.

  Willber G: This would make a good Tuesday puzzle.
Jun-13-17  flightsquare: yes, the game is more impressive than the puzzle, which is just the easy denouement

  Jimfromprovidence: As a side puzzle and in response to the many comments, after 36...hxg6, remove the g6 pawn.

White to play and win.

Jun-13-17  RandomVisitor: After 23.a5

white will sac the a- and c-pawns to draw black pieces away from the attack-weakened kingside.

There will be no endgame to take advantage of the material.

However, black could have tried:
