  gawain: This is terrific. The immediate...Qe1+ does not work but if Black begins with 37...Qe4+ White is helpless.
Mar-05-18  stst: An Installment Loan, need 2 stages to finish:
38.Ka1 (only sq.) Qe1+ again
39.NxQ but then RxN# as the K smothers himself, too deep to get out.
Mar-05-18  agb2002: Black has a bishop for a knight and a pawn.

White threatens Rxe7.

Black wins with 37... Qe4+ 38.Ka1 Qe1+ 39.Nxe1 Rxe1#.

The direct sacrifice 37.. Qe1+ would work if Black's c-pawn were on c4.

Mar-05-18  AlicesKnight: Not too hard once you see the ....e4 check first. Somebody please explain why not 34....Nxh4.
Mar-05-18  Boerboel Guy: <Gregor Samsa Mendel: 37 Rxh7 was a horrible blunder, especially for a correspondence game.> Exactly! and in fact 37 gxh7+! wins for White...
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: Most likely, the score has a typo and White's 34th move was Qh3 instead.
Mar-05-18  gofer: This is a <correspondence game> and white played <37 Rxh7??>

That is really bizarre!

<37 gxh7+ ...>

37 ... Kf8
38 h8=Q+ Kf7
39 Qh7+ Kf8
40 Qxf4+ mating

37 ... Kg7
38 h8=Q+ Rxh8 (Kf7 Qxf4+ mating)
39 Qf7+ Kxh6
40 Qf6+ +-

37 ... Kf7
38 Qxf4+ Kg7
39 h8=Q+ Rxh8
39 Rxh8 Kxh8
40 Qe5+ +-

<37 ... Kh8>
<38 Qxf4 ...>

White is winning this at a canter. How does someone miss the mating threat (after <37 Rxh7??>) during a correspondence game?!

Mar-05-18  goodevans: <34...Nf8??>, <35.Bxh7+??>, <36...Qe7??>, <37.Rxh7??>. Practically all of the last few moves before the finale were outright blunders.

I can only imagine that both players were in severe time trouble!


Mar-05-18  gofer: <perfidious:> You must be right!

It's a really good explanation for the difficulties that white was facing at <37 ...?> and explains everything!

Mar-05-18  SpamIAm: <goodevans>, they must have FedExed all of their last five moves. ;)
Mar-05-18  morfishine: First <37...Qe4+> forces the White King into the corner, then <38...Qe1+> forces mate


Mar-05-18  malt: Starting with 37...Qe4+ 38.Ka1 Qe1+ 39.N:e1 R:e1#

<Check'm & Wreck'm>

37.gh7+ would be better for White

Mar-05-18  zb2cr: Mate in three, forced. 37. ... Qe4+; 38. Ka1, Qe1+; 39. Nxe1, Rxe1#.
Mar-05-18  sorokahdeen: Ditto on the previous comments re: "Correspondence? Really?"

Let me add: "That wasn't blitz? Are you sure?!"

Mar-05-18  mqhelisi: Zwischenzug pure breed!

  Stonehenge: The year 1987 is probably wrong. White may be L H Deelman and Black Dirk Bleijkmans or A Bleijkmans.
Mar-05-18  whiteshark: <lost in space: Most complicated was to find out that it is black to move.> Exactly the same thing happened to me...
Mar-05-18  Arn Zufeld: I love Monday’s too. That’s probably the reason I only achieved a Grandpatzer rating...

  Breunor: When we evaluate the moves after 34, I'm almost positive Perfidious is correct and white played 34 Qh3 and not Qh4.

Even a 900 player would see either Nx h4 or Qxf5ch. Some of the subsequent moves then, although not best, aren't crazy. Note that 37 gxh7ch is still lost (Stockfish shows -6.6) but it is better than mate in 3.

Mar-05-18  landshark: Could today's puzzle be the first Monday ever that's both very easy AND insane?
Mar-05-18  King.Arthur.Brazil: Monday puzzle always make me begin the week laughing. Today is so easy that, I have to see why did white have being check mated, while he is so near to black king neck. So I see other friends talking the same: how can one fall on a 3 moves check-mate, with a move Txh7 in a postal chess game? I guess that he just MAKE any fool move, thinking "I already winned". Everyday, I feel that when I was a young chess player, I could have won some master title, as my chess is stronger than most of the these chess players I see on every monday puzzle here.
Mar-06-18  patzer2: Yesterday's Monday puzzle solution was a back rank mate-in-three starting with 37...Qe4+! -+.

The decisive mistake was 37. Rxh7?? allowing 37...Qe4+! Instead, 37. gxh7+! +- (+8.17 @ 31 ply, Stockfish 9) is a crushing win for White/

  Stonehenge: Changed the players, the year and the score.

The game can be found in <Schaakschakeringen, May 1987>, although they made the same mistake with 34. Qh4??.
