|Mar-02-10|| ||alexrawlings: Could make a nice Thursday or maybe Friday puzzle with White to move at move 31. |
The game would have ended with 33.. Kb8 34 Qb7#.
Leonard Barden gives the following interesting line: <31.. Kb8 32 Be5+! fxe5 33 Qxf8+ Bxf8 34 Rd8+ Qc8 35 Rcxc8+ Kb7 36 Rxf8 and White emerges with an extra rook>
And if, in the above line, Black retreats with 32.. Ka8 then 33 Rd7 wins.
|Feb-16-12|| ||Wyatt Gwyon: Pretty impressive to demolish a player like Aronian like this.|
|Mar-04-19|| ||stacase: The two queens and the Black King are all lined up in a row, Hmm what to do? |
This position is sort of like the proverbial "Post Turtle"
|Mar-04-19|| ||et1: Got it. Happy Carnival.|
|Mar-04-19|| ||Walter Glattke: 32.-Rxb2 33.Rc8+ Rxc8 34.Qxb7# / 32.-Ra7 33.Rxb7 Rxb7|
|Mar-04-19|| ||TheaN: Monday 4 March 2019
White uses the weak a8-h1 diagonal by playing <32.Rd7!> and pretty much put ultimate pressure on the Black Queen. Unavoidable pressure, to be exact.
Black could 'try' Rxb2, what mates after 33.Ra6+ or Rc8+, but my quick glance Rxb7?! still mates Black relatively quickly. After Ra7, he simply goes down material with still a horrible position.
Accepting is also a no-go, but slight deceiving is the strength of the discovered check. White has two double checks, but neither are better than <32....Qxd7 33.Rc7+!> as Black can't actually defend himself on the long diagonal. After <33....Qd5 34.Qxd5+ Kb8 35.Qb7#> it's done.
|Mar-04-19|| ||morfishine: <32.Rd7> wins on the spot|
|Mar-04-19|| ||zb2cr: I remembered 32. Rd7 from seeing this game before.|
|Mar-04-19|| ||saturn2: I saw 32. Rd7
32...Qb8 (otherwise Q for R) 33. Ra6#
|Mar-04-19|| ||pittpanther: I got it but thought it was hard for a Monday.|
|Mar-04-19|| ||belgradegambit: took me much longer than ususal for a Monday but found the deflection.|
|Mar-04-19|| ||thegoodanarchist: < morfishine: <32.Rd7> wins on the spot>|
It wins "off the spot" too! ;)
|Mar-04-19|| ||steinitzfan: I didn't get it. After Black accepts the rook sac, White has two very tempting double checks to look at -- one of which actually mates in three. I had to let the 6-second wonder find it, though.|
|Mar-04-19|| ||landshark: 1.Rd7! QxR
2 Rc8++ Ka7
4. Bd4+ Bc5
The new "very easy" looks more and more geared toward players 2000 and up.
Definitely not the old see-it-at-a-glance Mondays
I'm not complaining - this was a very interesting mating pattern which I think I'll retain now that I saw it and solved it -
|Mar-04-19|| ||landshark: Well -
Actually simpler than I thought.
Seems I made a Wednesday out of a Monday /:
At least my solution works!
|Mar-04-19|| ||whiteshark: <32.Rd7 Qxd7 33.Rc7+> and that's it.|
|Mar-04-19|| ||Chess for life: Too hard for a Monday. Totally obvious once you see the solution.|
|Mar-04-19|| ||Otoy: When I see elegant sequence of moves like this, which lead to indefensible attack, it makes me feel good inside and reinforces my affection with Caissa, which is unparalled in its inherent beauty, which keeps those players who discovered its innermost secrets, bound for life.|
|Mar-04-19|| ||Sokrates: Typical blitz game, where Aronian quite early found himself on a very wobbly scaffold. The last ten moves somewhat played themselves.|
|Mar-04-19|| ||stacase: At first all I saw was a way to win Blacks Queen for a Rook - but when 33.Rc7+ was actually on the board - you know, those little clues you get when posting and one says "When you see a good move look for a better one?" Yeah winning the Queen is good, but Check Mate is better. Well Black tipped his King over before the "Better move" could be played, and when that happens it's time to accept the win (-:|
|Mar-04-19|| ||BOSTER: 18...Ra5, and white has not too much.|
|Mar-04-19|| ||drollere: sneaky discovered check shields the mating square.|
32. Rd7 Qxd7
33. Rc7+ Kb8
|Mar-05-19|| ||Sokrates: <BOSTER: 18...Ra5, and white has not too much.> Much better for black, right! But an assessment of the position depends on what put emphasis. Black has not castled yet, white has an open diagonal (a2-g8), Bd7 has to watch square e6, white has two potentially strong center pawns and significantly better development, so I'd say he's clearly better. But in a blitz everything may happen! :-)|
|Mar-06-19|| ||Diademas: Davs <Sokrates>|
I posted a question to you on my forum page. Just klick on my picture.. :)
|Mar-08-19|| ||Diademas: Never mind...|
