  fredthebear: For all intents and purposes, this is the Milner-Barry Gambit accepted. It is quite dangerous for the Black queen to grab both center pawns. At the eighteenth move, Black has five pieces still on the back row.

  Phony Benoni: The first thing that stands out is that Black's queen is protected on ly by the Rd8, and we have the familiar distracting idea of 28.Re8+. Black can play 28...Bxe8, but 29.Rxe8+ then repeats.

Black doesn't have to play ...Rxd8, but 29...Kg7 30.Nf5+ wins the queen another way.

Jun-06-17  stacase: Damn the torpedoes, Full speed ahead! Works every time - well OK, sometimes.

Was there enough power on e8 and was White's Knight well placed or what? Black was going to lose the exchange.

Jun-06-17  Walter Glattke: Tuesday is rook say day, isn't it?
29.Re8+ Bxe8 30.Rxe8+ Rxe8 31.Qxd6 or30.-Kg7 31.Nf5+ Kxg6 32.Nxd6

  FSR: 28.Re8+ Bxe8 29.Re8+ Rxe8 (29...Kg7 30.Nf5+) 30.Qxd6+ Re7 (otherwise 31.Bxe8) 31.Qd8+ Kg7 32.Nf5+ Kxg6 33.Nxe7

  ChessHigherCat: Nothing left to say about the puzzle after PB's and FSR's analyses, so backing up a bit, if anybody's wondering why black didn't try to win the bishop with 21...g5??? 22. Bf5 Qd8 (only square, oddly enough) 23. Be6+ Kf8 24. Bxg5.

If 23..Kg7 then 24. Nf5+ Kf8 25. Bd6+! Qxd6 (if 25...Ne7 26. Rxe7 Kf8 27. Re8++ mates) 25. Nxd6+

Jun-06-17  stst: White got too many blades..
Re8+ will start the ball rolling - then the game plays for itself... later Nf5+ will also fork, either the Q or R, depending on previous responses... Easier than Mondays

  agb2002: The material is identical.

Black threatens Qxc5 and Rxg6.

The rook on d8 protects the black queen. Therefore, 28.Re8+ (28.Nf5 Qxc5 29.Re8+ Bxe8 - +):

A) 28... Bxe8 29.Rxe8+

A.1) 29... Rxe8 30.Qxd6+ Re7 (30... Kg7 31.Bxe8 + - [Q+B vs r]; 30... Ne7 31.Bxe8 + - [Q vs r]) 31.Qd8+ Kg7 32.Nf5+ Kxg6 33.Nxe7+ Nxe7 34.Qxe7 + - [Q vs r].

A.2) 29... Kg7 30.Nf5+ Kxg6 31.Nxd6 Rxe8 32.Nxe8 + - [Q vs r].

B) 28... Rxd8 29.Qxd6+ Re7 30.Nf5 Rxg6 31.Nxe7 + - [Q vs n].

C) 28... Kg7 29.Nf5+ is similar to A.2.

Jun-06-17  AlicesKnight: White has enough Rs on the e-file to check, causing either deflection of Black's d-R from its protection of the Q, or the Black K to go to g7 allowing the Nf5 fork of K and Q.
Jun-06-17  saturn2: 28 Re8

If the black king escapes to g7 then Nf5 forks queen and king.

If 28..BxR 29 RxB RxR then 30 QxQ

Jun-06-17  Walter Glattke: 18.-a5 in German Bundesliga!? In Amateur
Chess Clubs nobody would play that, they would move horses here.
Jun-06-17  morfishine: One had to see the final Knight fork on <f5>


Jun-06-17  zb2cr: There are just too many good ideas here! Qxd6, Rxd6 followed b7y Nf5 forking the Rooks to win the exchange. Or Re8+ to remove the guard on the Queen. The latter is better.
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiteshark: <28.Re8+ Bxe8 29.Rxe8+> wins with either a <deflection> or a <royal fork>.
Premium Chessgames Member
  gawain: Clever combination. Nothing much to add to previous comments. White conducted the game quite impressively
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: white wins with sharp sacs!
