Apr-29-19  groog: A little harder for a Monday puzzle, quite enjoyable.
Apr-29-19  Shadout Mapes: I actually used a different mate, but it's in the same number of moves: 29.Bg7+ Kg8 30. Bxh7+ Kxh7 31. Qh6+ Kg8 32. Qh8#

I guess I saw how nice the pawn on f6 is for keeping black's queen out of the game, so I hit upon this line by seeking combinations where it stays put.

Apr-29-19  Cybe: 26... Ne6?? 26... Be6 leeds to perpetual draw by White.
Apr-29-19  areknames: <Shadout Mapes> After 30.Bxh7+ Black has 30..Nxh7.
Apr-29-19  saturn2: I saw 29. Qg7+ Rxg7 30. fxg7+ Kg8 31. Rxf8+ (or gxf8=Q+ Qxf8 32. Rxf8#) Qxf8 32. gxf8=Q#
Apr-29-19  malt: Nice Monday Q-sac

You missed 30...Nxh7 which stops the attack.

Apr-29-19  SpamIAm: I would underpromote to a rook on move 31 or 32. Just because I could.
Apr-29-19  zb2cr: 29. Qg7+ starts a cascade that leads to mate. 29. ... Rxg7 is forced, after White White has 30. fxg7+, Kg8; 31. gxf8(Q)+, Qxf8; 32. Rxf8#.
Apr-29-19  alexrawlings: For some reason my brain couldn't visualise the position through to mate... I knew it had to be <29 Qg7+> as it's a monday puzzle and looking at the position nothing else made sense to me. Having looked at it after posting I hadn't taken in to account the bishop on h6 was also pointing to the queening square on f8, together with the pawn on g7 and the rook on f1 so I kept thinking the combination didn't work as white didn't have sufficient control of f8. I'm going to be kind to myself and put this down to a long weekend and a lack of sleep!

  Messiah: It seems the moderation is suboptimal, to say this way.
Apr-29-19  Walter Glattke: A second way was 29.Bg7+ Kg8 30.Qh6, now, find a good move for black (30.-d3? 31.Bxf8 Qxf8 32.Qh7#), slaughtering Festival with 30.-Rxf6 31.Rxf6 Be6!? 32.Bxf8! and Qh7#. I always overlook anything, find it! (30.-Qd7 31.Bf8 Rxf8 32.Bd5+ Rf7/Qf7 33.Qg7#)

32.Qxh7 is not mate, there is 32...Rxh7.

Apr-29-19  olinart: Walter, I started looking at Bg7+ too. It fails on 30 ..Be6 so that31. BxF8 is answered by R(a8)xB.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Check It Out: I looked at this one for quite awhile before finally making 29.Qg7+ work.

My mind was busy looking at Bg7+s, Bxh7+s, the rook on f1s influence, the g8 square, etc.

It finally clicked when I simply followed 29...Rxg7 30.fxg7+ down the path, and lo and behold, the white bishop on h6 was still there, eyeing f8.

Apr-29-19  Damenlaeuferbauer: Of course, my old Hungarian friend Andras, who was 3rd - 4th in the Riga Interzonal in 1979 and qualified there for the Candidates cycle, where he lost unfortunately in the quarter-finals against Robert Huebner in Bad Lauterberg in 1980, found the mate in 4 moves in this Interzonal game in Mexico 2 years later: 29.Qg7+,Rxg7 30.fxg7+,Kg8 31.g7xf8Q+,Rxf8 32.Rxf8# By the way, he told me that he convinced Magnus Carlsen last summer with many new ideas to play the Sicilian Sveshnikov and Grunfeld Defense in his World Championship match 2018 against Fabio Caruana, but unfortunately Caruana only played 1.e4.

  Jimfromprovidence: Here's a side puzzle.

If white had tried 29 Rxc6 and black had responded by refusing to take the rook and instead had tried 29...Qd7, below, adding more protection for g7, does 30 Qg7+ still win for white?

  Check It Out: <jim> it looks like after the exchanges white would be left up an exchange for a pawn with powerful f file control, but black does have those connected passers. I'd say it's a win for Carlsen if all that is correct.
Apr-29-19  swclark25: I also went with 29.Bg7+ This moves also works per the computer analysis, just not as good as 29.Qg7+ The moves after Bg7+ are the important ones.

If 29.Bg7, mated-in-8 (23 ply) 29...Kg8 30.Bh6+ Ng6 31.Bxg6 Ne7 32.Bxf7+ Kxf7 33.fxe7+ Bf5 34.Qxf5+ Qf6 35.Qxf6+ Ke8 36.Qd6 Rd8 37.Qxd8#

  Breunor: This is one of those games that the patzer move seems better. Black is ok with 25 ..... Rxf6, the first move that comes to my mind.

I checked the computer, 25 Rxf6 is scored at 0.3. The text move Rf7 though is the losing move, scoring 3.5.

<Check It Out> White does a little better than you indicate, basically winning a piece in what seems like a forced line of play.

After 29 Rxc6 Qd7 30 Qg7+ the line goes 30...Rxg7 31.fxg7+ Qxg7 32.Bxg7+ Kxg7 33.Rc7+ Kg8.

It ends after 34.Bd5+ Be6 35.Rxf8+ Rxf8 36.Bxe6+ Kh8 37.Rxb7.

Should be good enough to overcome the connected passers.
