Oct-05-06  Castle In The Sky: Got it in under 30 seconds. This is a great overworked piece puzzle. Black's rook is both defending the bishop and defending e7 square from the king queen fork. ♕a8 creates an additional burden for the rook by forcing it to choose bewteen defending the knight and preventing the fork. Consequently, it is overworked.
Oct-05-06  Marco65: <Sneaky> arbiter = "tournament director" wrong translation from Italian sorry
Oct-05-06  kevin86: This puzzle was surprizingly easy for a Thursday-I saw Qa8 like a shot! Maybe that is to make up for yesterday's fiasco.
Oct-05-06  aldehyde: was an easy one.....

  Peligroso Patzer: This has to be one of the most original defletion moves I have ever seen.
Oct-05-06  outplayer: hey I am getting better at solving this. Solved it in a few minutes. Maybe 2 minutes. First part I saw the nice position of the knight threatening to fork the queen at c8. Then I saw the rook at a7. It's a deflection! Then I only had to calculate the variation 'cause Qa8 is almost obvious.
Oct-05-06  outplayer: Week theme: queen sacrifices.
Oct-05-06  YouRang: Well, what do you know? I got it! :-)

Right away, I spotted the potential for the knight fork (Nxe7+), which threatens to win a Q+B outright -- and the only thing stopping it was the rook on a7.

So, almost anything I can do to deflect this rook from it's defense of e7 will be worthwhile! Still, for some reason, it took me a couple minutes to consider the direct, but insane-looking 21. Qa8!!

Oct-05-06  kelu: do competition of solving this kind of pb exist on-line ? thanks
Oct-05-06  ricochetrabbit: Another interesting line..
21. Qa8 Bd8 22. Qxa7 Nc6 23. Ne7+ Nxe7 24. Qb8 (Rcd1 25. Nc6 and the queen is trapped). This leaves white with a rook for a minor peice. For me, I'm never sure I can certainly win with this much advantage :). But who am I kidding, I'm no 'crazystuff'.
Oct-05-06  alphee: I saw ♕a8 as a possible move for the Queen but rejected it on the basis that Black would keep protecting the e7 Bishop by ♖b7 or ♖d7. Exchanging the Queens by 21 ... ♖xa8 22. ♘xe7 ♔h8/f8 23. ♘xd8 did not appeal to me and I ended up investigating ♗e5 chasing the other rook to e7 but with no obvious outcome ...
Oct-05-06  desiobu: Missed it. I thought the 21. Qa8 Bd8 lines people came up with were pretty slick though. Sneaky's Qxb8 line in particular.
Oct-05-06  Trouble: I got this one pretty easily
Oct-05-06  JYMMI: I got this one very easily...
Oct-05-06  Open Defence: I think to truly understand the tactics available you need to go through <Sneaky's> 21...Bd8
Oct-05-06  Kreifi: Did not find it and it was so easy and oblivious. I'm just a another patzer. :(
Oct-05-06  savuflorin1983: <Sneaky> In fact, 21. ...Bd8 deserves 1 or even 2 ?-s, because it could continue: 22. Qxa7 Nc6 23. Ne7+! Bxe7 [23. ...Kf8 24.Nxc8 Nxa7 25. Nxa7 ] 24. Qxe7 and Black is toast

  playground player: Why not 21. Bb4, which winds up with White trading a bishop and knight for a bishop and rook? Not quite as good as the right answer--but I didn't get the right answer!
Oct-05-06  slowcrawl: Haha, this was nifty. Didn't solve it. It seemed amazing to see that won material no matter what.

  Peligroso Patzer: <queenvsrook: what about bh4?>

After 21. Bh4, it seems that 21. ... Rxg6 enables Black to avoid losing the exchange, with an essentially even game.

  OhioChessFan: Saw the Qa8 shot immediately. 2 recent games I've looked at had a similar Queen move. One on <Knight13> page, and a Kramnik-Deep Fritz game where I've been trying to find a good line for Kramnik with a threatened Qa1.

<savuflorin1983> did you forget about that Black Knight on c6?

Oct-05-06  Chess Addict: Wow, this is the first puzzle I solved.
Jan-02-09  WhiteRook48: hanging queen on a8 is just funny- only to make opponent give queen back
May-02-13  Wyatt Gwyon: That's one hell of a move!
