  WTHarvey: White mates in 3.

27. ?

27...♔f8 28.♖g8+

Premium Chessgames Member
  An Englishman: Good Evening: Who here would have had the courage to play 15.Ncxd5? Certainly not myself. Curious about the best reply to 26.Qd4. Of course 26...Red8 allowed a mate in 3, but how does White proceed after 26...Nh8? If 27.Rg6+,Nxg6 and Black covers the possible mating squares. However, 27.Rxe6,Nxe6; 28.Qxh8+,Kf7; 29.Qxh7+ looks challenging to Black.
Jan-10-22  stacase: Well, as I like to say, the Rooks motor is running, where to go? There are five choices:


Saying Check isn't always a good move, but in this case it certainly is (-:

28. Rg8+ Kxg8
29. Qg7#

All forced

  agb2002: White has a bishop and three pawns for both knights.

Black threatens Rxd4.

The rook on f6 stops Qg7#. Hence, 27.Rg6+ Kf8 (27... hxg6 28.Qg7#) 28.Rg8+ Kxg8 29.Qg7#.

Jan-10-22  mel gibson: So easy - LOL
Jan-10-22  stst: thought to be sunday's insane, now insanely easy: 27. Rg6+ PxR

have to see how Black got into this bad situation

Jan-10-22  stst: dont understand why after white's 25Qe3 the Black R leaves the d-file not guarding the white Q coming back to Qd4 forming the B-Q diagonal ready to mate?
Jan-10-22  paavoh: @An Englishman: <However, 27.Rxe6,Nxe6; 28.Qxh8+,Kf7; 29.Qxh7+ looks challenging to Black.>

You are right, 29.-Kf8 30.Qh6+ Kf7 and 31.Bf3 followed by 32.Bh5+ seems convincing enough.

  ajk68: I always enjoy combinations with moves like 28. Rg8+

There's something satisfying about forcing the king to come back to meet its doom.

Jan-10-22  AlicesKnight: Found the mate in 3. Blacks Rs fiddle while the city burns.
Jan-10-22  TheaN: Monday mates; <27.Rg6+> checks prevail over captures as long as they lead to the same end result, as it's forced. <27....Kf8 (hxg6 28.Qg7#) 28.Rg8+! Kxg8 29.Qg7#>. The fact that this includes a magnet in form of Rg8 makes it a bit more tricky than usual.
Jan-10-22  Brenin: <An Englishman>, <paavoh>: After 26 Qd4 Nh8 White has 27 Rf7, and all four captures of the R by Black lead to immediate mate. His only escape is 27 ... Qg5, and then 28 Rg7+ Kf8 29 Rxg5 picks up the Black Q, with 30 Qg7 mate still threatened.
Jan-10-22  njdanie: 27.Rg6+
Patzer sees check, patzer makes check...
Jan-10-22  TheaN: Black was toast, or well, somewhat grilled, after 20....Kg8?! (21.b5 +1.5 ±), instead of the rather straightforward 20....Be6 (21.b5 +0.33 ⩲). I don't see why Black would not opt to develop whenever he could.

He is in fact toast after 21....Nf7? (22.Rxf6 +5 +-), and why he'd just allow taking on f6 I don't know. Black's not fine but holding on after 21....Qe7.

After 22.Rxf6 White didn't make any more slip ups.

Jan-10-22  DrGridlock: I saw that white's queen and bishop are nicely stacked along the a1-h8 diagonal, with mating threats on g7 and h8. I first looked at picking up black's knight with Rxf7, since mate follows after Bxf7 or Qxf7. However, after Kxf7 the king can run and hide on e8 with no way for White to push the attack.

Better for white to leave the knight alone, and use to good advantage the tempo which comes from the check on g6!

Jan-10-22  johnnydeep: Got it fully in a minute. At least I can still solve at least *some* Monday's puzzles quickly :-)
Jan-10-22  TheTamale: Arrgh. For the life of me, I couldn't see 28) Rg8+.
Jan-10-22  Skewbrow: Delighted that I was able to see how it goes when black won't capture the rook. Anyone just saying Rf6+,P+R,Qg7x get only half a point, I think.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Teyss: A bit trickier than it first looks because White has to understand why the other clearances 27.Rxf7 and Rxe6 fail.
27.Rxf7? Kxf7 (not Rxd4? 28.Rxe7 wins) 28.Qg7+ Ke8 and White only has a small advantage.
27.Rxe6?? Nxe6 (again not Rxd4? 28.Rxe7 wins) and Black is better.
Jan-10-22  Damenlaeuferbauer: After long pondering, the young, but already very strong Spanish GM David Anton Guijarro finally found the mate in 3 moves with the nice rook sacrifice 27.Rg6+!,Kf8 (27.-,hxg6 28.Qg7#) 28.Rg8+,Kxg8 29.Qg7#. He played a tricky variation with 5.Nh3 against the Dutch possible Classical/Stonewall set-up.
Jan-10-22  Johnraho: What a sweet attack
Jan-11-22  FM David H. Levin: <Brenin: After 26 Qd4 Nh8 White has 27 Rf7, and all four captures of the R by Black lead to immediate mate.>

That's a lovely "interference." Had it occurred, I think it would have been a particularly satisfying conclusion.

Jan-11-22  paavoh: <Brenin: After 26 Qd4 Nh8 White has 27 Rf7, and all four captures of the R by Black lead to immediate mate.>

A great find! "See a good move, look for a better one!"

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Rather wish <brenin's> line had occurred instead of the game.
