Black loses after 24...Nxe4 25.fxe4 Nf3 due to 26.Ng6!

Or black can force a draw: 24...Nxe4 25.Nxf7 Bh3 26.Be3 Bxg2+ 27.Kg1 Qc8 28.Qd4 Bg7 29.Nh6+ Kh8 30.Nf7+ draw by perpetual

Oct-11-14  diagonalley: <abuzic> ... ah yes! many thanks

  offramp: What a great game. ...Q-B1! is a superb creeping move.

Three black knights.

Oct-11-14  Geronimo: Some "very difficults" stil have intuitive moves, but the difficulty lies in calculating the variations, finding move order, etc. This one just blows me away though, with what to me (not that strong, but not that weak either) is a collection of moves that I would probably never stumble across. It gives lie to my belief that the best players in the world are still looking at the same board.... Sigh*, the the traditional laments of a woodpusher.
Oct-11-14  johnlspouge: Sometimes, an algorithm helps. After assessing material, I check K safety. Here, the White K is stalemated, so I looked for checks. The threat 24.Bh3 25.Bxg2 then popped out.
Oct-11-14  Labgrunt: What an incredible ending by Black! Very nicely done.
Oct-11-14  patzer2: Analysis verified (move by move) with Fritz 12:

<24. Nxe5?> Though not obvious at first glance, this is the losing move.

Instead 24. Be3! Nh7! (24... Bh3 25. Rg1 Qd7 26. Bf1 ; 24... Ne8 25. Qc1 ; 24... Ne8 25. Qc1 ) 25. Nxe5! Nf5 26. Ng6! Nxe3 27. Qd4! Qf6 28. Qxf6 Nxf6 29. Nxc7 Rxc7 30. bxc7 Nxf1 31. Bxf1 = holds.

<24... Bh3!!> This brilliant reply solves today's Saturday puzzle and proves White's previous move the decisive error.

<25. gxh3>

Not 25. Nxf7?? Bxg2#

If 25. Rf2!? (best according to Fritz), then 25...gxf2 26. gxh3 (26. Bxf2 Bxg2+ 27. Kg1 Rg7 28. Nxc7 Bxf3+ 29. Kf1 Bg2+ 30. Kg1 Bh3+ ) 26... fxg1=Q+ 27. Qxg1+ Rg7! 28. bxc7 Qe7! 29. Qd4 Rg2 30. Rg1 Qg7! 31. Bf1 Rxg1+ 32. Qxg1 Qxg1+ 33. Kxg1 a6 34. Nc3 Rc8 .

<25... Qc8 26. Ng4 g2+>

If 26... hxg4, then 27. hxg4 g2+ 28. Kh2 gxf1=Q 29. Qxf1 .

<27. Kh2 gxf1=N+! 28. Qxf1 hxg4 29. hxg4 Nxg4+ 30. Kg3 Bh6 31. Kxh4 Bf4 32. Kh5 Rh7+ 0-1> White resigns in lieu of 33. Kg6 Rh6#.

Oct-11-14  Rama: How could I not notice that Bh3 threatens immediate mate?!
Premium Chessgames Member
  kevin86: I knew it would take a few sacrifices to open the position 4 black.
Oct-11-14  abuzic: <patzer2: Analysis verified (move by move) with Fritz 12:

<24. Nxe5?> Though not obvious at first glance, this is the losing move.

Instead 24. Be3! Nh7! (24... Bh3 25. Rg1 Qd7 26. Bf1 ; 24... Ne8 25. Qc1 ; 24... Ne8 25. Qc1 ) 25. Nxe5! Nf5 26. Ng6! Nxe3 27. Qd4! Qf6>?

27...Rg7! should keep black superior

if 28.bxc7 Qg5 29.f4 Qxg6 30.Qxe3 Qf6 31.Kg1 Qh4

click for larger view

the g3 pawn is like a fishbone in the throat...
While 24.Nxc7 is met with 24...Nxf3 25.gxf3 Nxe4!; 24.Qe1 with 24...Nxe4!; 24.Ne3 with 24...Nxe4!; 24.f4 with 24...Nf3!.

Oct-11-14  deadlyduck: Totally missed this.
I was looking at ideas such as ..Nxg2; Nxf7 Qd7; Ng5 Nf4; Re1 Bh6; Ne6 Nxe6; de Qxe6; Qd8+ Kh7; Qxc7+ Bd7; Bf1 and somehow pushing the h pawn/ exploiting the now activated a8 Rook etc etc but I'm pretty sure the glasses are rose tinted today :)
Oct-11-14  gofer: Hmmm, "Very Difficult"!? I don't see the difficulty. The only difficulty is dicarding Nxg2, Nxf3, Nxe4, Ng4 etc etc. As it slowly dawns that these are all rubbish, you have to look for something else, while white will be snaffling up pawns, rooks and possibly a queen...

<24 ... Bh3!>

White is threatened with Bxg2#, so cannot attack anything else, but Bh3 or defend against Bxg2+ or give the king some space by moving Bg1.

24 ... Rf2?
25 gxf2

24 ... Bd4?
25 Bxg2+ Kg1
26 Qc8

<24 gxh3 Qc8>

25 ... Rf2?
26 Qxh3+ Bh2 (Rh2 27 g7#)
27 Nxe4

25 ... Bh2?
26 Qxh3 Rf2
27 Nxe4 as above

<25 Ng4 g2+>
<26 Kh2 gxf1=Q>
<27 Qxf1 hxg4>
<28 hxg4>

Do we need to go further? Black is already winning...

Nxg4+ or Nxe4 look pretty good!

  agb2002: I haven't found the time today to analyze this puzzle. I was considering maneuvers based on Nxg2, Nxe4, Qh5, etc.
Oct-11-14  patzer2: <abuzic> Good find in thwarting the attempted save 24. Be3! Nh7! 25. Nxe5! Nf5 26. Ng6! Nxe3 27. Qd4! with 27...Rh7! , which seems to leave the win intact for Black.

Instead, perhaps the Fritz 12 recommendation 23. bxc7! Bh3! 24. Rf2! gxf2 25. gxh3 Qd7 26. Bxf2 Nxf3 27. Qb3! to saves White's game a move earlier.

Oct-11-14  bcokugras: 23. Kxc7 !
Oct-11-14  Moszkowski012273: Black really should of lost this...
Oct-11-14  TheBish: A S Hagen vs K Szabo, 2012

Black to play (24...?) "Very Difficult", White is up a pawn.

My first thought was that the key was a knight sacrifice, followed by a second knight sac (both clearance sacs), followed by ...Qh4+ and mate. But the threat of Nxf7 stops that idea dead in its tracks, so it soon became apparent that I was barking up the wrong tree with that idea. But I then found the right tree!


Now the threat of 25...Bxg2# prohibits 25. Nxf7 or 25. bxc7.

25. gxh3 Qc8! 26. Rf2

What else? If 26. Be3 Qxh3+ 27. Kg1 Qh2#, or 26. Ng4 g2+ 27. Kh2 gxf1=Q 28. Qxf1 hxg4 and Black wins a rook.

26...gxf2 27. Bh2

Of course not 27. Bxf2 Qxh3+ 28. Kg1 Qg2#.

27...Rg7 28. Bf1 axb6 and Black should win, up the exchange with a continuing attack.

Oct-11-14  Cheapo by the Dozen: The ... Bh6/g2+ plan was obvious, but I totally missed the ... Qc8 interpolation, which cause White to abandon most of his threats that were present in the initial position.
Oct-12-14  TheBish: Whoops! I should have said (after 26. Ng4 g2+ 27. Kh2) 27...gxf1=N+! -- I was thinking it didn't matter, missing 27...gxf1=Q 28. Nxf6+, the in-between move.
Oct-12-14  M.Hassan: "Very Difficult"
Black to play 24...?
Black is a pawn down.

<if 25.Nxf7 Bxg2#>

25.gxh3(forced) Qc8 threatening mate by Qxh3
26.Ng4 hxg4
27.Re1 to save Rook from ...g2+
27..........gxf3 again threatening mate by taking the h3 pawn by Queen. 28.Bf1 Rh7
29.Qb3 Ng2
30.d6+ Kh8
31.Bxg2 Rxh3+
32.Bh2 Rxh2+
33.Kg1 Rxg2+
33.Kf1 Qh3
and mate will be soon.

Oct-12-14  nariga: <abuzic>
a) 24...Nxe4 25.Nxf7 Nxg2 followed by Qh4 etc. White can only delay Qh4 but not prevent it. if:

26.Kxg2 Bh3+ 27.Kh1 Qh4 etc.

b) 24...Nxe4 25.fxe4 Nf3 26.Ng6! then need a couple of moves to chase this Knight away and then move Qh4. White has no good moves in the meanwhile.
