   QueenMe has kibitzed 47 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-01-21 V Nadtocheev vs Krogius, 1962 (replies)
QueenMe: I went with, and hereby STAY with, Nf6, which both threatens mate with Rxh7 and discovers attack on the undefended queen. That will force a resignation from any honest human opponent, obviating further analysis, and we can all go home early.
   Feb-20-21 A Jerez Perez vs Romero Holmes, 2001 (replies)
QueenMe: Yeah, somebody goofed. There's even dialogue on p.1 discussing it as a previous Monday puzzle. From move 28.5, the only promising/salient move (...Ng3) leads directly to mate. Black has little choice but to capture the night, but that opens the file and brings Black's rook into the ...
   Jan-26-21 V Peresipkin vs Chekhov, 1976 (replies)
QueenMe: Getting the puzzle was easy. The surprise was the such a position actually occurred over the board in a real tournament game. One has to wonder when white saw the vulnerability.
   Dec-10-20 Y Vovk vs S Lots, 2007 (replies)
QueenMe: I went with 31. Be7. In addition to the obvious devastating threat to the [pinned!!] knight, trying to defend with 31. ... Rf8 (which Black won't like, but after re-capture with the other rook can at least be further defended by the Black queen from d8) fails by white continuing ...
   May-31-20 A Iljin vs Nepomniachtchi, 2007 (replies)
QueenMe: I'm with <Brenin>: also went with Bc5. Clearly the difficulty with this Sunday puzzle is making the best choice over several vulnerabilities that Black has: Qh5, Rxf4, (and after the bishop is at c5, also 23. Ra7) are all on the table. Assuming black answers Bc5 with 22 ... ...
   Feb-05-20 K Petzold vs Dreev, 2008 (replies)
QueenMe: A genuine surprise - that it's the PAWN that deals the mate threat death blow!
   Jan-02-18 Short vs E Blomqvist, 2017 (replies)
QueenMe: OhioChessFan: You meant Rb8, right?
   Dec-08-17 Ding Liren vs E Inarkiev, 2015 (replies)
QueenMe: Got this immediately; all the way through capture of the queen. Now I need to get Photoshop to put a halo around my avatar.
   Nov-09-17 J Salas Romo vs H Appel, 1945 (replies)
QueenMe: Got it! Took < 5 secs. Saw the double-discover of the N & B on the E file, that the capture of the N would reduce protection at B6 to a single pawn, making the B sacrifice possible, & everything. Yay! Either I'm getting better or this was pretty easy.
   Oct-15-17 Polugaevsky vs E Torre, 1984 (replies)
QueenMe: Exact same analysis as <stacase>: though officially "insane", you can almost intuitively solve this puzzle one move at a time. The real tipping point is to have the guts to sacrifice your final (black) bishop, so that your remaining rook can safely make it to A3.
