Feb-07-20  Cheapo by the Dozen: Ack. I got my timing wrong and didn't realize the ... Rh6 interposition would always be tried at a time Black's king was at h8, and hence fail due to the pin on the g7 pawn.
Feb-07-20  Abdunnaser: This is a Monday buzzle
Feb-07-20  kungfufighter888: the solution to this puzzle is to bring the white queen to h7 to checkmate the black king.
Feb-07-20  BLB3: My name is Alexandr Hilario Takeda dos Santos Fier you killed my rook -and then my other rook- Prepare to die!
Feb-07-20  Vermit: A good exercise in visualisation. Took me about 30 seconds to spot it.
Feb-07-20  Jambow: For whatever reason saw the R+,R+,Q# in about ten seconds maybe blitz is paying off...

Feb-07-20  ndg2: Once you realize the mate on h7 by pattern recognition and how to achieve it by multiple rook sacs, you also realize this procedure may be lengthy but totally enforced. And this in turn brings the puzzle from "difficult" to "easy / medium".

27.♖h8+ ♔xh8 28.♖h1+ ♔g8 29.♖h8+ ♔xh8 30.♕h1+ ♖h6 31.♕xh6+ ♔g8 32.♕h7#

Feb-07-20  TheaN: Yeah this pattern is too famous to warrant a Friday puzzle. I already thought so last year. Besides that point, this is a forced mate in six, something relatively uncommon for Friday/weekend puzzles. Alas we're repeating week 3 of last year so...
Feb-07-20  Thief: A 2428 missed this!? I can't even get a 2000 rated player to fall for this.
Feb-07-20  BwanaVa: OK, white sacrificed a bishop, a rook, and was ready to sac another rook to gain mate in one of the best known attack patterns...and black is 2400+

Does anyone else suspect collusion?

one of our favorite movies! I love the sword fight after Wesley climbs the wall.

"You're Bonetti's Defense against me

That's only fitting considering the rocky terrain

Yu must expect me to attack with CapoFerro!

Naturally, but i find Thibault cancels out CapoFerro.

Yes, but i have studied my Agrippa."

Feb-07-20  njdanie: I thought this puzzle was supposed to be "dificult". It was obvious...
Feb-07-20  ndg2: <chris owen><Well bushwack!> shocked by Chris Owen's totally intelligible remark.
Feb-07-20  catlover: <PawnSac> LOL! I love that movie.

  chrisowen: And there two owing?
Feb-07-20  Walter Glattke: White also wins with 27.Rh5 f6 28.Nxe6 so pupils would play in school, but, according to agb 2002, I offer you to look at Anderssen-Kieseritzky, London 1851, really nice, that.
Feb-07-20  JimmyRockHound: What are you smoking Chris Owen?
Premium Chessgames Member
  Pedro Fernandez: Apparently what my great friend <Chris> wants to say, through '5' is that the knight on 'g5' decides the game by repetition of checks on 'h1', since the g7-pawn is pinned. Lamentably I couldn't see this amazing mate in six.
