Maybe over the board my thinking would be better than at nearly midnight trying to be first to post.

Jan-14-13  gars: God bless Mondays!
Jan-14-13  vinidivici: <nottogoodabeginner: way too easy even for this unrated beginner>

?? You are new in this web, right....

For many years, this is how the puzzles work...

This is Monday...what do you expect D'OH....:rolleyes:

Jan-14-13  James D Flynn: Black is a R down but can restore material equality by fxe4. However that is unnecessary because he can ignore the R on e4 and mate in 4, and if Black takes the time for 35…..fxe4 36.Qf1 averts the mate and Whites R can penetrate on the Q-side and harass the Black K. Black can mate in 4 by 35…..Rxh4+ 36.Kg1(not gxh4 36……Qg2#) Rh1+ 37.Kxh1 Qh3+ 38.Kg1 Qg2#
Jan-14-13  LoveThatJoker: <35...Rxh4+ 36. Kg1>

(36...gxh4 37. Qg2#)

Jan-14-13  GreenLantern: Nice game by User: IMlday
Jan-14-13  snakebyt: Even if after RXh4 pawn takes then mate. So K slides out of the way only to be mated by Qh3# RXh4 is it.
Jan-14-13  Nullifidian: Mate in 4.

35... ♖xh4+ 36. ♔g1 (♙gxh4 ♕g2#) ♖h1+ 37. ♔xh1 ♕h3+ 38. ♔g1 ♕g2#

Jan-14-13  sushijunkie: I feel like we should agree to kibitz less on Mon/Tues problems. Life is too short.

  kevin86: If white refuses the rook sac-then the rook is sac-ed again,but this time in the Godfather mode,it is an offer that can't be refused! Mate follows in two.

  perfidious: <sushijunkie> Your idea is reasonable if it works for you, but what would some posters-and I do not speak of <nottoogoodabeginner>-do if they could not proclaim that they solved it in a nanosecond, or some such thing?

Jan-14-13  MountainMatt: 35...Rxh4+ to start the inevitable mate
Jan-14-13  Mendrys: <sushijunkie> I dunno, some of the kibitzing can be useful and instructive, even on a Monday or Tuesday puzzle. True enough, the lines are usually much simpler but a lot of the kibitzing revolves around where one side or the other went wrong and how they could/should have avoided the puzzle position in the first place. In this regard they can be as useful and instructive as a Sunday position.
Jan-14-13  mistreaver: Monday.Black to play. 35. Very Easy?
This one is kinda obvious.
a)36 gxh4 Qg2 mate
b) 36 Kg1 Rh1+! 37 Kxh1 Qh3+ and Qg2 mate
Time to check.
Yep. Gotta love Mondays. 1/1
Jan-14-13  brimarern: I wish these positions appeared more in my games!
Jan-14-13  Kikoman: 35. ...Rxh4+!

A) 36. gxh4 Qg2+#
B) 36. Kg1 Rh1+! 37. Kxh1▢ Qh3+ 38. Kg1 Qg2+#

Jan-14-13 "Lawrence Day and the Three Knights"
Jan-14-13  BlackSheep: Thanks <Once> for confirming my thought on "what happened to (34.) Qf1?" as it seemed to sit with the whole h3 ,Kh2 defence idea.
Jan-14-13  Patriot: 35...Rxh4+

36.gxh4 Qg2#

36.Kg1 Rh1+ 37.Kxh1 Qh3+ 38.Kg1 Qg2#

Completely forced.

Jan-16-13  sushijunkie: My previous comment was done with tongue planted in cheek. Us Chessplayers are too obsessive let anything go unnoted. I propose a forum on Scholar's Mate...
Jan-17-13  siggemannen: Isnt 33...Qxh3 winning much easier?
Jan-17-13  shivasuri4: <siggemannen>, yes, 33...Qxh3+ 34.Kxh3 Rh6#.
