  a q maclanahan: While 30.a3 doesn't help, true, there is nothing better. If not 30.a3 then it's mate at a2.

  Cheapo by the Dozen: Mondays are much easier than Sundays.

At least there was a knight involved again.

Jul-14-14  detritus: White really didn't do himself any favors with 25. Ka1 and 26. Rb1.
Jul-14-14  Poulsen: <a q maclanahan><While 30.a3 doesn't help, true, there is nothing better. If not 30.a3 then it's mate at a2>

Well, white could play Qxc4 and then a3 - that prevents the immediate mate ... :-)

Jul-14-14  mathlover: Easy
.....Qxa3 the end of white defence

  agb2002: Black has a knight for a rook.

Pattern recognition finds 30... Qxa3+ 31.bxa3 Rxa3#.

  hoodrobin: Monday... the first day for young Adam.
Jul-14-14  morfishine: <30...Qxa3+> and mate next move; this works since the Knight covers b2 <31.bxa3 Rxa3 mate>

  Oxspawn: White has rook for knight but black has the position. And I think I prefer my way of finishing it…. 30. Nxa3
If
31. Bxa3 Qxb3++
If
31. Qc3 Nc2 double check and mate
I hope that works or I am going to feel pretty silly about not going with Qxa3

  whiteshark: It's a no-win situation, right?
Jul-14-14  patzer2: In response to the inviting 27...Rcc6, the reply 28. Nb4?? loses to 28...Rxb4! .

Instead, 28. Nc1 appears to hold.

Jul-14-14  zb2cr: 30. ... Qxa3+; 31. bxa3, Rxa3#.

  OhioChessFan: <Oxspawn> I assume you meant 30...Nxa3 31. bxa3 Qxa3++ and you're right that 30...Nxa3 31. Qc3 is a quick mate, but 30...Nxa3 31. Rbc1 holds on for a while although White is totally lost.

  Penguincw: This is probably the easiest Monday ever.
Jul-14-14  Sally Simpson: It's Monday Black to play...

...so the first thing you do is look for Queen sacs with a check. There is only one. 30...Qxa3+ and mate next move.

Black was measuring up White for two Queen sacs here with 26...Qa4.

If now the pawn fork 27.b3 Qxa2+ 28.Kxa2 Ra6 mate.

And if now the pawn steal 27.Qxf7 then I pressume the idea was 27...Nd2

With Nb3 mate and Qxa2+ and Ra6 mate ideas floating about.

Jul-14-14  geeker: Last week's early puzzles were a bit tricky, but this is a return to the straightforward Q sac.

  JohnBoy: <Gregor Samsa Mendel: Yes, 30 a3 could be considered a "super genius" move.> I'm wondering what you offer as alternative.

  PawnSac: it doesn't get much simpler than this.

I should change my name to QueenSac

  kevin86: Mate in two is possible because the black calvalry covers the square b2.

queen sac mate= typical monday.

Jul-14-14  Chess Dad: 30. ... Qxa3+
31. bxa3 Rxa3#
Jul-14-14  BOSTER: This is the pos. white to play 27. after black moved his power queen on a4 with 27. Re2.

White, who without any force moved his king in the position ,where king had no any move, I guess not clearly understood that the real protection need not b2 pawn,but a2 pawn.

If he did, he would play ,even when all black forces on the queen's side against white king,Re2 through X-ray protecting a2 pawn and square.

And after this the threat b3 is in the air, and black has no tempo to play Qxa2.

<Sally Simpson: If 27.b3 Qxa2+ 28.Kxa2 Ra6#>.

The explanation is that <b3 pawn> vacated the escape square.

  lost in space: I love Mondays, especially after such a Sunday in Rio.

30...Qxa3+ 31. bxa3 Rxa3#

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: <JohnBoy>--30 a3 was analogous to pulling down the window shade in an effort to stop an oncoming train--that's why I provided the cartoon clip. If you really must know.

  Cheapo by the Dozen: For White to successfully play b3/bxc4, he has to avert at least two responses:

Mate at a2.
... Qxc3+, perhaps after ... Rxc4 chasing the White queen.

Also, ... Qc2 could tie White in further knots.

<Boster>'s 27 Re2 looks more promising than most, but 28 b3 would surely be premature; further passivity with something like 28 Qc1 would be needed instead.
