Aug-04-07  dghins: <aazqua> PxB actually loses for Black! With: 34.Rxc4 gxh2
35.Kxh2 dxc4
36.Qc2 Rh8
37.Qe4 Kc7
38.d5! exd5
39.Qxd5 c3
40.Qc5+ Kb8
41.Qd6+ Kb7
etc. until white Q forks Black K and Black R to win R and Game.
Aug-04-07  willyfly: Material is even and Black's ♕ is under attack - something forceful is needed - Black's ♖ can give check but I think the solution to this puzzle will begin with the ♙ push 33...h3+

After that I saw several promising lines depending on White's response - since this is difficult Saturday I'm probably not going to get it - and I am too tired from work last night to concentrate - so I'm just going to look

well - believe it not that was one of the lines I was considering - at least up through 35 ♕d1+ the ♖ sac was something I had considered in a different line to move White's ♙h2 and create an advanced passer - on a better day I might have got this one all the way

Aug-04-07  MenisfromVenis: Bl Q under attack and with no good moves (33...Qxd4, 34 Rc7+ wins the Q), RxB only loses the exchange, so h3+ followed by Q checks (most leading to mate) looks like the winning move.

Must say, the R for B and Q exchange later on are beautiful moves I did not spot and are worth a puzzle themselves.

Aug-04-07  Aas: I guess i got as close to solving the puzzle as you can get, without solving the puzzle. I saw all the moves played and the idea to promote with 38... h2 but discarded it because i didn't see that the black bishop prevented 39 Rc1 from being played. Therefore I settled with one of the less winning sidelines.
Aug-04-07  sataranj: i think i got it.
33....h3+ 34.Kg1 (34.Kxh3 loses out to 34...Qf1+ 35.Kh4 Bg5+ 36.Kg4 (36.Kh5 Qh3#) Bc1+ etc) Qxd4+ 35.Ke1 Qd1+ 36.Kf2 Bf4 Queening the pawn
Aug-04-07  beginner64: One of the interesting things about this puzzle is that black forces white to defend with its pieces that then block the exits for white's king (See my post above, and <LivBlockade>'s.)
Aug-04-07  belgradegambit: Very easy for a Saturday since its hard to miss h3+ since everything else loses the Q.
Aug-04-07  bogo78: <sataranj: i think i got it.> Qd1+ with the K on e1, may I ask who protects the Q?
Aug-04-07  Waitaka: <belgradegambit: Very easy for a Saturday since its hard to miss h3+ since everything else loses the Q.>

See h3+ is easy, even I saw it. But you can only take credit if you see the pawn promotion to Q, after the R sacrifice.

Please, see <dzechiel> analisys above to understand the complexity.

  kevin86: A sharp attack! I had no clue on this one. Black ends this one with a breakaway pawn-after it looked like his queen was in trouble earlier.

The name of KLINGER reminds me of a MASH joke-
CHEZ KLINGER! Toledo is dying for another five star restaurant.

BJ:The last one closed when all of the pin boys quit.

If you look at the position after Qe2, Rxg3 is quite easy to find as are the other variations. Would I have seen Rxg3 when playing h3, perhaps not but when we got to Qe2 I certainly would have.

  playground player: OK, I will take credit, since I saw h3+, then the Rook sac, and then the pawn promotion... And so for the first time ever, I've solved the puzzle seven days in a row (must be gettin' smarter).
Aug-04-07  alexandrovm: how about h3+? If the king doesn't take, it looks like black can sac the queen and promote the h pawn with a rook sac on g3. If the king does take, it can follow Qf1+, with interesting complications...
Aug-04-07  alexandrovm: I had the idea...but not the whole line :)
Aug-04-07  Fezzik: I found this rather easily, again by using the axiom, "Always Analyse Forcing Moves First" (AAFMF, from John Nunn).

This was beautiful, but not particularly difficult to work out, even with seeking White's best defenses. I'm just not so sure that it was as difficult as most Saturday puzzles.

The most difficult part was to realise that the h-pawn queens, but since that was a crucial element in working out the side variations, it wasn't too hard to see.

Still, this was an impressive combination by a young (under 20 years old)Arencibia!

Premium Chessgames Member
  patzer2: For today's difficult Saturday puzzle solution, White springs a deep passed pawn combination which begins with the cleverly combined deflection and decoy pseudo-sacrifice 33...h3+!!

If White takes the 33...h3!! bait he gets mated or loses his Queen to a discovered check. If he declines it, White follows up as in the game with five consecutive decoys to simplify and allow the Black h-pawn to pass and promote to Queen.

  fm avari viraf: At first sight, it looks that Black's Queen is trapped since 33...Qxd4? would lose to 34.Rc7+ Kxc7 & 35.Qxd4. Hence, 33...h3+! 34.Kf3 [ not 34.Kxh3 Qf1+ 35.Qg2 Qf5+ wins or 35.Kh4 then Bg5+ wins ] 34...Qf1+ 35.Qf2 Qd1+ 36.Qe2 forced & the rest is all tactics.
Aug-04-07  bakuazer: it took me long time to get this. I was thinking about hxg3. I think this leads to unclear Q aginst R+B ending and there are some interesting lines here. Only some 8-10 minutes later I noticed h3 move. At first I thought it does not lead anywhere after Kf3. (the other cases are easy) but then amazing Qd1+ wins immediately. I had a psychological problem because i was thinking that saturday puzzle must be a long and subtle endgame but this one wins instantly. 6/6 this week, looking forward to solving sunday puzzle :).

Aug-04-07  beginner64: <Waitaka: See h3+ is easy, even I saw it. But you can only take credit if you see the pawn promotion to Q, after the R sacrifice.>

My post in the beginning (3rd one) shows how black can win without the R sac as well.

Aug-04-07  uuft: Easy. 6/6
Aug-04-07  uuft: Easy for a saturday, I mean. h3+ stood out to me in under one second (fastest Saturday ever). 15 minutes later I put all my money on it. And yes, I am thinking about quitting the dayjob. But don't tell her ;)
Aug-04-07  tomek322: I missed it I was thinking
33.... Qxc3
34. Qxc3 Rxg3+
35. Qxg3 Pxg3

Obviously doesn't win the game as quickly, but we are now ahead a bishop and should still win.

Any comments?

why 35.Qxg3? You are missing 35.h2xg3.

Aug-06-07  Crowaholic: Nice. Got the entire combination down to the very end where I saw that 35. ..Qd1+ followed by the rook sac and queen exchange leaves White with no way to stop the h pawn.

Well, first, I considered numerous other moves such as Qxc3, hxg3, Rxg3 but nothing came of them. I immediately saw the clearance sac Rc7+ with which White would punish Qxd4. Then I noticed that White probably intended the bishop to be taken, so what about spoiling this plan with h3+?!.

Then, it's easy to see that Kxh3 leads to mate with Qf1+, Kf3 leads to Qf1+ with the unstoppable promotion as played, Kh1 leads to mate in 1, but it was more difficult for me to analyze 34. Kf2. ..Qxd4+ is obvious - now White doesn't have the tempo to play Rc7+ - and so is

35. Kf1 Qc1+ 36. Kf2 but now what? The answer as dzechiel found (respect!) is that 36. ..Bd2! leaves White in total despair. Unfortunately, I missed this part and wanted to play Qh1?? instead, which according to computer analysis still leaves Black with an advantage, but only a moderate one, since 37. Qc2! gives White a powerful mate threat. Now the queen exchange with ..Qg2+ 38. Ke1 Qxc2 39. Rxc2 is forced, then ..Rg4 and the Spike engine gives this an eval of about -2.7 at 20 ply.

Sep-29-18  Daodejing: By the way, that was the important game of the world junior championships 1986 Gausdal to decide the winner.

A great talent of Austria is Josef Klinger (see photo), born in 1967 in St.Johann im Pongau. Accompanied by ÖSB early, he played trained by IM Georg Danner, three youth World Championships. In 1983 he is in Belfort 7.-11. from 61 and beats u.a. Nigel Short. In 1985, he is bronze in third place of 69 in the Emirates. In 1986 he plays in Gausdal in the last round against the Cubans Arencibia for first place. It's like Lasker vs Schlechter in 1910. Klinger would be world champion with a draw, but Arencibia wins the game and Klinger is fifth, ahead of Anand. Klinger becomes international champion in 1985 and has the second best result behind Kasparov at the 1986 Chess Olympiad in Dubai on board one. In 1988, he becomes grandmaster and skips in the Elo list of FIDE as the first Austrian, the 2500-point wall. From 1990 he retires from competitive chess.
