  Phony Benoni: Now this looks like a mating attack, and it doesn't take longer than a Monday Moment to find <36.Rxg7+ Rxg7 37.Qxh6+ Kg8 38.Qxg7#>.

Forced, and so easy a groundhog could see it in less than six weeks.

  Penguincw: I missed yesterday's Monday puzzle, can I get this one? Remember, don't look for mate, unless it's there.

Yay, I did, and in about 5 seconds. Remove the defender of h6 by capturing on g7, twice. 36.Rxg7+ Rxg7 37.Qxh6+ Kg8 38.Qxg7# 1-0.

Feb-02-16  stacase: So complicated and yet so easy (-:

In other words it took a while to find it.

Feb-02-16  LoveThatJoker: 36. Rxg7+ Rxg7 37. Qxh6+ Kg8 38. Qxg7#


Feb-02-16  lost in space: Took me much longer than nessesaary - overlooked at the begining that there is a rook on g1.

But with that rook on g1 there is the simple 36. Rxg7+ Rxg7 37. Qxh6+ Kg8 38. Qxg7#

Feb-02-16  saturn2: Blacks knight on f4 defends mate on g6, blacks bishop on g7 defends mate on mate in 3, the bishop can be taken, so lets do it
Premium Chessgames Member
  gawain: A breeze. The black bishop is covering h6 so he must be removed. The mate follows easily.
Feb-02-16  The Kings Domain: Nice and easy one.

  agb2002: White has the bishop pair for a bishop, a knight and a pawn.

Black threatens 36... Nxh5 and Qxf7 if the queen escapes.

The black bishop protects h6. Hence, 36.Rxg7+ Rxg7 (36... Kh8 37.Qxh6#) 37.Qxh6+ Kg8 38.Qxg7#.

Feb-02-16  patzer2: No problem finding the four-move mate starting with 36. Rxg7+! for today's Tuesday solution.

Black's decisive mistake appears to be 24...Qd8? allowing 25. gxf5 gxf5 26. Qf2 (+1.93 @ 20 depth, Deep Fritz 15).

Instead, 24...fxg4 25. Bxg4 Qb7 (+0.36 @ 19 depth, Deep Fritz 15) keeps Black in the fight.

For an early Black improvement, I prefer 6...d4 = as in J Montell Lorenzo vs I Miladinovic, 2000.

Feb-02-16  stst: Black's K is cramped, but the only course for W to win is:

36.RxB+ RxR (forced)
37.Qxh6+ (NOT RxR+, which fails to KxR) Kg8

Feb-02-16  stst: <
The black bishop protects h6. Hence, 36.Rxg7+ Rxg7 (36... Kh8 37.Qxh6#) 37.Qxh6+ Kg8 38.Qxg7#.>

...(36... Kh8 37.Qxh6#)

Well, 36.... Kh8 is actually FORBIDDEN (illegal!!) h8 guarded by the White N !!

Feb-02-16  stst: <today better 30 seconds and yesterday i took 5 mins...>

Yeah, sometimes, apples, oranges, bananas... all messed up!!

Feb-02-16  Cheapo by the Dozen: Perhaps somebody switched the Monday and Tuesday puzzles this week?
Feb-02-16  morfishine: <36.Rxg7+> forces mate: 36...Rxg7 37.Qxh6+ Kg8 38.Qxg7 mate

<Cheapo> Ditto


Feb-02-16  Nick46: <Phony Benoni> lol
Feb-02-16  cocker: Much easier than yesterday's
Feb-02-16  CHESSTTCAMPS: In this middle-game attacking position, white has a material deficit of a bishop for a knight plus pawn, but the battery of rooks, the queen, and the knight are all strongly focused on black's weakened king position. White can easily brush aside black's threat of 36... Nxh5 by forcing mate with 36.Rxg7+ Rxg7 37.Qxh6+ Kg8 38.Qxg7#
Feb-02-16  patzer2: Correction: No problem finding the three-move mate starting with 36. Rxg7+, though you can stretch it to a four move mate with 36. Rxg7+ Rxg7 37. Qxh6+ Kg8 38. Rxg7+ (instead of 38. Qxg7#) 38...Kf8 39. Qh8#.
Feb-02-16  patzer2: White's win actually begins a move earlier with 35. Nf7+! when, instead of 35...Kh7 allowing mate-in-three, Black can prolong the game with 35...Qxf7 (diagram below):

click for larger view

Here white wins after 36. Qxf7 hxg5 37. Rxg5 Bh6 38. Qf6+! when play might continue 38...Bg7 (38... Kh7 39. Qe7+! Bg7 40. Be3! Rae8 41. Qf7 Ref8 42. Rh5+ Nxh5 43. Qxh5+ Bh6 44. Qxh6#) 39. Qe7 Bh6 40. Rxf5! exf5 41. e6+ Rg7 42. Bxg7+ Bxg7 43. Qh4+ Kg8 44. Qxf4 a3 45. bxa3 bxa3 46. Bxd5 with Deep Fritz 15 announcing mate-in-twelve.

Feb-02-16  gars: <Phony Benoni> I saw it in six hours but, unfortunately, I didn't see anything in yesterday's puzzle.
Feb-02-16  saturn2: Everybody goes for 38 Qxg7#; I prefer 38 Rxg7#
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <saturn2: Everybody goes for 38 Qxg7#; <I prefer 38 Rxg7#>> I don't, cuz 38...Kf8 is still a legal move. ;)
Feb-02-16  TheTamale: Got this one quickly. It's more impressive to behold from one move earlier... pretty keen combo by White.
