"Sredni Vashtar went forth,

His thoughts were red thoughts and his teeth were white.

His enemies called for peace, but he brought them death.

Sredni Vashtar the Beautiful."

Sredni Vashtar: Trifling.

Sredni Vashtar: <mcgrath999: cant wite still win with 23 kf1 Qc1+ 24 kg2 ..?> Yes, and even faster with 23.Kf1 Qe2+ 24. Kxe2, since Qe2+ is about the only move the black could make that is even more stupid than Qc1+. FYI, the draw is achieved by the black keeping his Q on b1-h7.

Sredni Vashtar: <ahmadov: <ginsta: Is there any link to access all the previous puzzles of, say, a month or two?> I think this question was answered on the chessgames chess forum a few days ago> The puzzle archive is available only to premium members, but a number of users have ...

Sredni Vashtar: Cool. How about starting with this short story: ?-)

Sredni Vashtar: <al wazir> It also could mean that a 2200+ player ( Jan Cervenka ) would finish off a 2600+ player (Fritz), given enough time for 50+ moves. I wonder whether my proposed strategy (exchange the isolated pawns, bishops, and rooks. Keep one knight, then use it to pick off ...

Sredni Vashtar: Indeed Kg3 is clearly superior to Kg1; the explanation was given by <Dick Brain> on the first page of the comments: <Kg3 is simpler than what was played since it protects [against] the check on g4>. I missed both.

Sredni Vashtar: For the benefit of those who cannot be bothered to read the prior postings and keep posting ideas that were refuted multiple times: Perpetual check idea starting with 34 ... Qe1+ is refuted by 35.Kg2 (see <whatthefat> and <cu8sfan>, page 1 of comments). 34.Rf1 ...

Sredni Vashtar: <WarmasterKron> OK, I propose to agree to disagree on the distinction between the blunder and inaccuracy. Other than that, I don't have any issues with your argument and certainly agree that no ! is deserved by Rxf4. And I am not going to bicker about the distinction ...

Sredni Vashtar: Difficult for Monday - requires deeper analysis than usual (3 moves instead of 1-2). The Rxe6 blunder may appear attractive, and also requires a couple moves to be considered in order to see that it fails. But deeper analysis is hard to avoid if only a piece is at stake, and ...
