Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-24-23  goodevans: 28...Qxg4 29.fxg4 Nf3+wins a piece.

But hold on. Black's a whole R down so that's no good.

How about we play 28...Nf3+ first? Yes, that works.

Jan-24-23  jrredfield: Saw this very quickly, easier than yesterday. 28 ...Nxf3+ leads to a quick doom for White. The longest White can hold out is 29 Kh3 Rh7+ 30 Kg2 Qxg4+ 31 Kf1 Nxd2+. If 29 Bxf3, then 29 ... Rh7+ 30 Bh5 Rxh5+.
Jan-24-23  Brenin: I first saw the tempting 28 ... Qxg4, apparently winning the B with 29 ... Nf3+, but no, the N is trapped on d2. Instead, I then saw 28 ... Nxf3+, leading to mate in a few moves. The combination actually starts with the R sac 27 ... Rxh2+, perhaps a good Wednesday POTD.
Jan-24-23  takebackok: Back to easy peasy Tuesday
Jan-24-23  mel gibson: That's too easy - it's mate in 4.
Jan-24-23  King.Arthur.Brazil: The main line is: 28...Nxf3+ 29. Bxf3 Rh7+ 30. Bh5 Rxh5#. If White don't capture the ♘: 29. Kh3 Rh7+ 30. Kg2 Qxg4+ 31. Kf1 Nxd2# (and capture the White ♕, I love it!) Or even 29. Kg2 Qxg4+ which leads to mate on f1 (as previous) or 30. Kh1 Rh7# (or Qh3# also).

By the way, I feel very sad to recognize that yesterday I posted an absurd solution, beginning with Rh7+ which is stopped by the obvious Qxh7, end! Sorry me, please.

Man, you can see how my brain is these days. When a known bandit assumes as president, U$100 billions run out of the country, many companies are closing doors, a communist government is marching to be stated.

Worst, manifasters (armed with Biblies and flags) are treated as terrorist (by media too) placed in a concentration camp without food, water, for 9 hours, without Justice correct procedure and you cannot do anything about it.

And for all of you my advise: be ware about any supreme court of Justice, when they begin to tell you what to do or not, without respect to the country laws (as in Brazil), they are threatening the citizens freedom, apologyzing for protect democracy (but their democracy is the one of a communist tyrant).

Here, this tyrant organized and changed the election by fraud, placed several condemned out of the jail which are now ministers and president. This cannot be more humiliating. You can count that China is behind all of this, including some international drugs cartel and the famous NWO. You can imagine: gray days.

If I suddenly disappear, than let me say before hand thank for you all at CG. It was a honor and a pleasure to be with you all these days. God bless you all.

Jan-24-23  Mayankk: White King is stuck on the h file with just a Bishop trying valiantly to fend off an immediate mate. So we distract it by 28 ... Nxf3+ threatening a Royal fork. And mate follows soon after 29 Bxf3 Rh7+ 30 Bh5 Rxh5#.

Black's 26 Qd2 move was rather strange. It let's go of the defense of the weak d1-h5 diagonal and does nothing to safeguard the weak h file. No wonder it got punished so severely.

  agb2002: Black has a knight and a pawn for a rook and a bishop.

The bishop blocks the action of the black king. Hence, 28... Nxf3+:

A) 29.Bxf3 Rh7+ 30.Bh5 Rxh5#.

B) 29.Kg1(2) Qxg4+ and mate next.

C) 29.Kh1(3) Qh4+ and mate in two.

The reverse order does not work due to the current material deficit and the trapped knight after 28... Qxg4 29.fxg4 Nf3+ 30.Kg2 Nxd2 31.Red1.

Jan-24-23  saturn2: 28...Nxf3 and the remaining black heavy pieces mate the king.

  Teyss: <King.Arthur.Brazil> I previously didn't have time to answer you but now I'll take it. I did once on Short vs Kasparov, 1993 but both our posts were deleted which is fine by me.

You've been rambling long enough about the situation in Brazil. You've said the election was rigged, what evidence do you have? You've said the scandalous institution invasions were infiltrated by communists, same question. You've been calling for the army to overthrow the government, that's called a coup, it's illegal.

For memo a jail is not a concentration camp and that's where people who invade institutions should be until they are fairly tried. For memo also, a Supreme Court is part of balance of justice in a democracy. You might not like the way it's leaning one way or the other (e.g. USA), too bad. I won't go on, every line of your posts is fake news.

So please stick to Chess which is what this site is about. If you wish to post political opinions go to Kenneth Rogoff

  rodchuck: <goodevans> Exactly what went through my mind!
Jan-24-23  areknames: It is interesting how both <King.Arthur.Brazil>'s and <Teyss>'s posts were allowed to stand for quite some time and only deleted from the above mentioned Short Kasparov game a few minutes after yours truly posted a message outlining some of Lula's characteristics. Of course my post was also deleted. Let's see how long it takes now!
Jan-24-23  areknames: <So please stick to Chess> Excellent advice from a great contributor to the site. You should take it.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Teyss: <areknames> Thanks for your note. To be clear I don't think Lula is a saint but won't expand since I don't voice political opinions on this site.

Re. your first note probably CG wanted to avoid a controversial thread and in a way they were right to delete all posts since selecting wouldn't have made sense. However they should be more clear and transparent on posting rules. The odd joke or bashing Putin is fine, but where's the limit?

  Check It Out: What < goodevans> said.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: What <goodevans> said, with the additional comment that 28...Qxg4+?? 29.fxg4 Nf3+ 30.Kg2 Nxd2 31.Rcd1 (or Red1) would win the knight.
Jan-24-23  AlicesKnight: ... Nxf3+ wins the Q or leads to rapid mate. Either way, good for Black.
Premium Chessgames Member
  northernfox: I passed this "Sulava Test".
Jan-24-23  TheaN: Interestingly, it takes a few extra looks to spot that <28....Nxf3+! #3> does not just win the White queen. Of course, 29.Bxf3 Rh7+ 30.Bh5 Rxh5#.

However, the alternatives are mate too on second glance, because Black always has either Qxg4+ or Rh7+. 29.Kg2 Qxg4+ 30.Kf1 Nxd2#, and the longest line being <29.Kh2/Kh1 Rh7+ 30.Kg2 (Bh5 Rxh5#) Qxg4+ 31.Kf1 Nxd2#>.

Jan-25-23  King.Arthur.Brazil: <Teyss> Venezuela and Argentina fell to the communist coup, and the latter currently has inflation of 95%/year. I have no reason to lie, but you seem to understand so much of leftist discourse, that you must know that the supreme court aren't payed to write laws, but only to judge. If you only understand this, you can take your poor thoughts in to the garbage, which is the best place for it. However, I answered all your questions in you page.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Teyss: <King.Arthur.Brazil> Oh well now Argentina is communist too (Venezuela we could agree on). What about Chile, Columbia, Bolivia?

I didn't say the Supreme Court write laws, learn how to read, although "balance of power" would have been more accurate.

And mind your language because I've been polite to you so there's no reason you shouldn't be. First and last warning.

I'll read your "poor thoughts which belong in the garbage" on my page when i have time and if i feel like it. In the meanwhile, stick to Chess.
