Apr-23-16  CHESSTTCAMPS: White is down a knight and a pawn, but white's pieces are all placed well for attack, while the black pieces do not seriously threaten the white king. My first instinct was to play 29.Rxg7, but my intended follow-up 29... Kxg7 30.Qg5+ Kf8 did not control e7 effectively. So I started looking at 29.Qg5, without getting anything conclusive. Finally I found the key follow-up to the first choice:

29.Rxg7! eliminates the black king's best defender.

A.29... Kxg7 30.Ne3!! (the threat of Nf5+ gains a tempo) Rxe4 31.Nf5+ Kh8 32.Bxf6+ Nxf6 33.Qxf6+ Kg8 34.Qg7#

A.1 30... fe 31.Nf5+ Kh8 (Kg6 32.Qh6#; Kf8 32.Qh6+; Kg8 32.Qg5+ all force mate) 32.Bxf6+ Nxf6 33.Qxf6+ Kg8 34.Qg7#

A.2 30... Kf8 31.Nxf5 Re6 (Re7 32.Qh6+ Ke8 33.Ng7+ Kf8 34.Ne6+ wins the Q) 32.Qh6+ Ke8 33.Ng7+ Ke7 34.Nxe6 fe6 35.Qg7+ Ke8 (Kd6 36.Bd5+ Nxd5 37.ed+ wins the queen) 36.Bxf6 Qd6 37.Bxd8 leaves white up the exchange.

B.29... Rxe4 30.dxe4 Bxe4+ 31.Rg2 - white has regained the material and the threat of Nd6 appears decisive.

Time for review..

Apr-23-16  CHESSTTCAMPS: The try 29.Rxg7 Kxg7 30.Ne3 appears to be refuted by 30... Rg8.

  Penguincw: Before I even tried solving this puzzle, I saw a purple link, meaning it has to be a recent puzzle. Looking at my history, it was just the puzzle last Friday. Hmph. Didn't get anything out of this puzzle. However, judging by my post last week, looks like I didn't have any success then either.

  al wazir: Why are this week's puzzles so much harder than usual? What have we kibitzers done to deserve this? Is this supposed to make up for the Monday-level puzzle that <CG> mistakenly posted as "insane" on 4/24?
Premium Chessgames Member
  agb2002: Too recent.
Premium Chessgames Member
  agb2002: A long time ago I decided to ignore the assigned/supposed level of difficulty and just go for it.

I don't care whether it's an insane Monday or an easy peasy Sunday. Actually, I think this resembles real life more closely.

Anyway, this is my personal opinion and stance.

Apr-29-16  gofer: <I don't wish to complain but...>

As a cheap-skate member of CG I am wary of starting in this vein, but really repeating a POTD is a pretty rubbish idea in the first place and I am luckily that it doesn't happen too often. But this one was POTD last Friday! What is worse is that this POTD was rubbish last week too.

<The final position is winning for black!!!>

So re-using <this> POTD is twice as bad as had it been a good POTD, by next week it will be exponentially worse...


Apr-29-16  dnp: is it me or what? How come the dates of posts are all April 22-16? I couldn't have slept a whole week without somehow noticing................could I?
Apr-29-16  dnp: ah, right......... But still confused
Apr-29-16  Boerboel Guy: Testing our memory banks!

  scormus: I see from the posts it was POTD last week but I was away and missed it.

Certainly, it's a bit strange, 29 Eg7 is indicated but I surely 30 Rg1 should follow, denying B the g8 for his R. With 30 Bxf5 W seemed to have lost his way. But B playes .... Kf8 anyway giving W another bite at the Rg1 cherry.

However, by then W had already played 30 Bf5 so 31 Bd7 was possible. B had to recapture with the N and 32 Qh6+ Ke7 33 Qg5+ Nf6 34 Bf6+ etc wins by force.

After that both players continued to miss chances.

I propose a pun for this "Lost Highway"

Apr-29-16  cocker: It was only last week, but I didn't recognise it until the final position, where Black has good chance of winning.

Apr-29-16  Lingard Goulding: Oh dear, more interminable drivel from chrisowen. He is certainly no James Joyce. Does anybody actually read his unintelligible outpourings?
Apr-29-16  N0B0DY: chriswho? ignored by N0b0dy since <Aug-16-12>
Apr-29-16  WorstPlayerEver: Dunno why this repost, somehow it reminded me of the POTD of April 27th though. Seems there are some simularities.

Kharlov vs Tseshkovsky, 1996

  Dionysius1: Hi <Gofer> How is the final position winning for Black? Isn't White going to mate on g7 or h8?
Apr-29-16  Nostrils: I think Chris has changed his algorithm recently.
Apr-29-16  Nostrils: Is this CG's way of saying we didn't correctly solve the puzzle last week?

Maybe only has a few games in the database, and the rest are fakes. So they need to keep reusing games for puzzles.

Apr-29-16  mel gibson: I saw this one straight away.
However my next move was to check the King with the other Rook & then take the pawn with the bishop - slightly different order but it works just the same.
Premium Chessgames Member We are very sorry for the scheduling mishap that unintentionally recycled last week's puzzle.

Under the unusual circumstances we'll have two puzzles today and show you as well a rerun from 2004. See you over at Piskov vs M Krasenkow, 1989 (43. ?)

Well, it can be hard finding puzzles, even if they control everything on this site.

I believe a while ago they made a bet to some user saying if you can find 10 Sunday-calibre puzzles, they'll give you a year of membership. I wonder if that bet is still on... chessforum
