Apr-25-17  lost in space: 25...Qh1+ 26. Bxh1 Nh2+ 27. Ke1 Rg1#
Apr-25-17  zb2cr: At first it looks as though 25. ... Qh1+; 26. Bxh1, Nh2+ doesn't do anything for Black. But then you notice the Black Bishop at h6 seals off 22.

Then, it becomes clear that 27. Ke1 is followed by 27. ... Rg1#.

  ChessHigherCat: I think I got it: Qh1+ Bxh1 Nh2+ Ke1 Rg1#. Yeep, checked with <lost in space> before me. It took me about three minutes messing around with red herring royal forks and such before I saw it. A trying Tuesday, following the trend set by monstrous Monday.

  ChessHigherCat: You can already see at move 14 that the big difference between the sides is that white can't really castle to safety. White thought the missing h pawn didn't compromise his castle but black thought differently and air-conditioned the White House with the exchange sacrifice 19. Rxh4.

  agb2002: Black has a knight for a rook and a pawn.

The bishop controls the escape square d2. Therefore, 25... Qh1+ 26.Bxh1 Nh2+ 27.Ke1 Rg1#.

Apr-25-17  stst: Position is just right for a pretty finish!!
26.BxQ (forced) Nh2+
27.Ke1 (no other defense) Rg1# (d2 is gunned by B@h6)

Pretty, but Monday material.

Apr-25-17  saturn2: 3 checks - the final one is mate
Apr-25-17  leRevenant: It took me about five minutes....
see <ChessHigherCat> for further comments.
Apr-25-17  Walter Glattke: I have noticed this as mate mechanic M 231, later generations can have an own Fritz-like software then, with special
ready endings or they test mate mechanice in middle game then.
Apr-25-17  newzild: <Phony Benoni> Yes, very good.
Apr-25-17  Cybe: 25. e4 seems to be the better move for White.
Apr-25-17  mel gibson: Mate in 3 but I didn't see it.
I'm crying.
Apr-25-17  FairyPromotion: Good call <Phony Benoni>! I immediately thought of Ivanchuk vs Yusupov, 1991, as well.
Apr-25-17  saturn2: 18 Rb1 seems a poor move to me since he had no time to let b4 follow. Also 19 Nh4 which allows the opening of the g file is questionable.
Apr-25-17  cocker: 25 Qf3 was a help mate.

  morfishine: <25...Qh1+> forces mate: 26.Bxh1 Nh2+ 27.Ke1 and now with Black's DSB conveniently covering d2, <27...Rg1#>


Apr-25-17  Walter Glattke: Cocker, no real help mate, 25.f3 Ne3+ 26.Rxe3 Rxg2 or 25.Rh3 Qxh3 26.Bxh3 Nh2+ 27.Ke1Rg1+ 28.Bf1 Rxf1#

Apr-25-17  Marmot PFL: mate in 3 begins with 25...Qh1+, very pretty unless you're playing white.
Apr-25-17  Walter Glattke: If not 25.Qf3, white could give Q for king with 25.e3 Nxe3+ 26.fxe3 Rxg2 (>Qh1#) 27.Qe5+ Qxe5 28.Kxg2, but after 25.Qf3 is always mate then.
Apr-25-17  catlover: "Pontus Autopilot"? I guess the pun means to imply that Milos was playing as if he was on autopilot. Carlsson sure wasn't.

Maybe Milos just washed his hands of the whole game.

  patzer2: The critical move in today's Tuesday puzzle (25...?) game is 25. Qf3?? This blunder loses immediately to 25...Qh1+ .

Instead, 25. e4 (+0.47 @ 21 depth, Deep Fritz 15) gives White a fligt square for the King and maintains the advantage.

With our Tuesday puzzle solution 25...Qh1+, Black initiates mate-in-three by via a combination utilizing the decoy, clearance, deflection and mate tactics with 25..Qh1+ 26. Bxh1 Nh2+ 27. Ke1 Rg1#.

Premium Chessgames Member
  patzer2: Deeper analysis of the improvement 25. e4 with Stockfish 8 indicates it's worth only equality for White after 25.e4 Ne3+ 26.Rxe3 Bxe3 27.Qxf6 Qxg2+ 28.Ke2 Bb6 29.Qf4+ Bc7 30.Qxf7 Qg4+ 31.Kd2 Bd6 32.Qf6 Kc7 = (0.13 @ 35 depth, Stockfish 8)
Apr-25-17  TheBish: Great Tuesday puzzle and great pun!
Apr-25-17  Walter Glattke: 25.e4
25.-Qh4 26.Nd1
25.-Ne5 26.Rg3 Rxg3 27.Qxe5+ Kc8 28.Qxg3
25.-Be3 26.e5
25.-Nxf2 26.Qxf2
Congrats to the metal Brains!
