Sep-18-23  Brenin: It's Monday, so it must be an h-file sac: 43 Rxh7+ Kxh7 44 Qh3+ with mate to follow after Black throws his Q and N away.
Sep-18-23  Mayankk: 43 Rxh7+ is indeed in the spirit of Monday.

But maybe the simpler 43 Ng6+ Kg7/Kg8 44 Nxf8+ Kxf8 45 Qxf6+ Ke8 46 Rg8# also works.

Sep-18-23  King.Arthur.Brazil: Quick: 43. Rxh7+ Kxh7 44. Qh3+ Qh4 45. Qxh4+ Nh5 46. Qxh5#. Mondays!

  NMABQjmgChess: Found the line actually played.

Did not see the 2nd line as given by Mayankk which is quite good too.

  Knighthawkmiller: Alternate, 41.Ng6+ ... +8.98 (24 ply) 41...hxg6 42.Rh3 Qxh3 43.Qxh3+ Nh7 44.Qc3+ Nf6
Sep-18-23  King.Arthur.Brazil: <Mayankk> I saw the same line, however, B is not forced to play <44... Kxf8>. So, if 44... Kf7, W has not the Qxf6+ and I didn't find a good continuation for this case, although W has win a quality.
Sep-18-23  Cecco: <Mayankk>, after 43. Ng6 Kg7 44. Nxf8 Kf7, I think that white must find the brilliant 45. Qxf6+. I can't find any other way to prevent black's reaction on the eighth rank.
Sep-18-23  saturn2: Mate at the edge of the board.
Sep-18-23  landshark: <Cecco> I wouldn't have spotted your brilliant 45.Qxf6+ in a month of Sundays. That's a beautiful move!

Fortunately for me I saw the game line with the quick mate (:

Sep-18-23  Mayankk: After 43 Ng6+ Kg7 44 Nxf8+ Kf7 45 Rxh7+ Nxh7 46 Qg7+ Ke8 47 Qxd7+ Kxf8 48 Qxd6+ Kf7 etc. Black King will continue to be harrassed by the White QR pair and should lead to an eventual mate and/or loss of more material.

But yes, White has to be careful to choose the right check at each point, as it has multiple choices and can go wrong. 43 Rxh7+ is definitely superior.

Sep-18-23  TheaN: Spotted the game line almost instantly and that's a swift #4. Ng6+ wins apparently but nowhere near as clean.
Sep-18-23  mel gibson: Pretty easy today - not worth a Stockfish analysis.
Sep-18-23  Brenin: Black's 42 ... Qxe4 was a blunder, leading to a quick (and easily spotted) mate. He could have avoided this with 42 ... Qd1+ 43 Kf2 Qd2+ 44 Qxd2 Nxe4+ 45 Ke3 Nxd2, with almost equal material, but then today's second choice move 46 Ng6+ restores White's significant material advantage.

  chrisowen: An it's hung quirk mc buffed it's saw plot u v joey it's Rxh7+ afford pot fab aba it's auld bag bug q Rxh7+ glock;
Sep-18-23  Lambda: I started out with the line 43.Rg8+ Rxg8 44.Qxf6+ Rg7 45.Rxh7+ Kxh7 46.Qh4+, which would be a pretty solution except black can take the queen. Then I noticed the queen has direct access to h3 once you take the pawn. But it would have been a good line if the black queen were controlling h3 rather than h4.
