|Feb-25-13|| ||SuperPatzer77: < radtop: gprice: for us slower guys. Why doesn't 21...RXF7 work? >|
If 21. Rxf7, the answer is 22. Bc4.
21...Rxf7, 22. Bc4 Raf8, 23. Re2 and White is better.

|Feb-25-13|| ||JimNorCal: <super patzer>: 21...Rxf7, 22. Bc4 Raf8, 23. Re2 and White is better.|
another line would be 21. ... Rf7;
22. Bc4 QxR; 23. QxR+ Kh8;
Sure, White's better (and up 2 pawns with prospects of getting more), but Black has vague back rank threats, plus moves like Rf8 to chase the white Queen and Nh4 to stir things up.
|Feb-25-13|| ||MountainMatt: How accomodating of black to not resign and allow 23. Qg8+ Rxg8 24. Nf7#|
|Feb-25-13|| ||kevin86: Typical Monday:this time a smothered mate.
Two ingredients for Monday:
1 queen sacrifice
2 quick mate.
|Feb-25-13|| ||PawnSac: A typical example of <assault and Batory>|
|Feb-25-13|| ||PawnSac: <SamAtoms1980: A familiar theme served as baby food. I would have set the puzzle back one move further.>|
That doesn't work Sam.. the problem is that blacks Nf4 blunder is not forced. So if you back it up one move, very few on this site would be able to solve to the clear win except with 21. ..Rxf7 (forced) BECAUSE of the double check and mate threat! So all the better players here would solve it something like this:
21.Nxf7 Rxf7 (forced, otherwise Nh6+ Kh8 Qg8+ RxQ Nf7++)
22.Bc4 with 2 options..
24. Qxb7 Rf8
and white is up 3 pawns and wins easily with the passer.
24. b4 Qb6
and white is up the exchange and 2 pawns.
so you see they wouldn't be solving the puzzle TO the game, they would solve to the better alternatives BECAUSE OF the game.

yea here ya go FSR...
Simon Bekker Jensen vs Simon Kim Williams
"Ginger Snaps" (game of the day Feb-25-13)
Reykjavik Open (2013) · Semi-Slav Defense: Botvinnik System. Alatortsev System (D44) · 0-1
after move 24.Kg1
BLACK TO MOVE (medium difficulty level /2 star)
that would have been a better puzzle
|Feb-25-13|| ||PawnSac: <BOSTER: <CG> shouldn't encourage the girls under 16 to see the naked black king in the corner of the chess board.>|
yes, it's dispicable. To see a cross ethnic mating net, King and Queen, the two of them squeezed into the corner together like that.. i know it was only a quickie, but gosh!
Is there a rating system for games?
GOTD should be G or PG only!
|Feb-25-13|| ||poachedeggs: Amazing...the knight was moved 8 times in the last 11 moves of the game to put a pillow over the face of the king...|
|Feb-25-13|| ||GoldenKnight: Of course, the classical smothered mate. Instantly obvious. I was actually disappointed the puzzle didn't begin a move earlier. Still instantly obvious, but a little more interesting.|
21...RxN is indicated, but Black still has a losing position as far as I can see. White is threatening Bc4, Re2 and Rd1, penetrating the 7th rank. Don't have time to look at it carefully, though.
|Feb-25-13|| ||Sneaky: <Is there a rating system for games? GOTD should be G or PG only!> Monday puzzles are always Master-Batory.|
|Feb-25-13|| ||BOSTER: If in the pos. after move 19.Qxe6 black would find the move 19...b5, it is not clear who would win: Master with two extra pawns, or Apprentice.

TIME TO CHECK
|Feb-25-13|| ||soberknight: I love smothered mate!|
|Feb-25-13|| ||Check It Out: POTD paging <Shams>!|
|Feb-25-13|| ||bam68: An oldie but a goodie with a typical Monday puzzle theme. The chess gods look favourably on our weekly sacrifice and are appeased.|
23. Qg8+ Rxg8 24. Nf7#

That seems a dubious assessment after, e.g., 20. Na5, Qe3 21. Raf1, when Black has one knight pinned and the other undefended.

That would be two moves back, I meant set it right after 21....Nf4
|Mar-02-13|| ||PawnSac: oh i see what you mean. that is 1 ply (half a move). Technically 1 move is 2 ply (1 move by each player, the way the moves are numbered in a pgn.|
but yea, that would have been a little better.
