Crispy Seagull: The Q sac a move or two before the puzzle position is gorgeous. Even if the queen is refused, no matter whether the white pawn is taken or the king tries to escape, it's still mate in 2-3 thanks to the knight and the rooks. Very nice.

Crispy Seagull: I like Mondays.

Crispy Seagull: Loose queen! ...Rxf1+ Kxf1 Bxg2+ Kxg2 Qxb6 Black's got a queen for a rook and shouldn't have too tough a time mopping up.

Crispy Seagull: I went the Rg6+ route.

Crispy Seagull: i worked it out all the way to the game's end position, and I agree that white has a superior and winning position, but I don't think it's as cut and dry as a simple resignation. I think a mate from that position is harder than it looks.

Crispy Seagull: No checkmate today it seems, but win the exchange by capturing the rook on g2 with a forcing check and follow with a royal fork with Ne3. Not your typical Monday.

Crispy Seagull: 25... Kd8?? Can anyone explain what the heck that might have been about? I know White's got a couple rooks aiming at his face but he abandons the rook...

Crispy Seagull: Note to self for Thursday: get the bishop.

Crispy Seagull: Mine was not the game continuation, but I spotted a different way to win a bishop. It's not as good however, since it leaves a rook on the seventh and drops a pawn, leaving White up just a bishop instead of a bishop AND a pawn. 27. Rxc8+ Kxc8 28. Bxd7+ Kxd7 29. Bxf6 At ...

Crispy Seagull: I looked for a while at Ng5, but for the life of me couldn't figure it out all the way. The king kept slipping away after ...Re8. Totally missed RxB to keep the threat alive. In a game I probably would have opted for the rook lift 18. Rh3 and a threat of some checks to ...
