Aug-03-19  Hercdon: Reminds me – don’t forget to recycle this weekend
Aug-03-19  PhilFeeley: < PJs Studio: Maybe this is a fair time to point out that we are so very lucky to live in a time to be able to view the greatest in their respective fields: Einstein, Peyton Manning, Tiger Woods, Wayne Gretzky, Gary Kasparov...>

We can now include Alma Deutscher in this list:

Aug-03-19  catlover: This is a good Saturday puzzle. Which is to say, it was over my head.

Aug-03-19  cormier: (minimum 6s/ply)better is 11...h6 = +0.25 (29 ply)
Aug-04-19  saturn2: The exchange of a pair of bishhops and knights beginning with 11...Nxe5 is black's big mistake.

After move 14 white has the impressive pawn chain c3,d4,e5 and the open f-file. All that black has created for white.

And the computers confirm this opinion as already stated.

some things are beyond words. So there is no need to comment, obviously since they are beyond words. Thus there are no words that can express what you can't comment on.

Aug-10-19  The17thPawn: Seriously!? Can we expect to view this puzzle weekly from this point forward?

  al wazir: I'm retrogressing. Five years ago I saw the first two moves. This time I only got 22. e6.

Aug-10-19  Omlyapawn: Theme; Will no one rid me of this meddlesome Bishop?
Aug-10-19  1stboard: Re-recycled
Aug-10-19  catlover: It's still over my head.
Aug-10-19  TheaN: Oh so we are repeating last weekend... could at least give us a heads up that we are, now it's a bit boring.

I knew this game, but never really looked at all alternatives. 22.e6! is essentially a clearance of the fifth rank, where after 22....Bxe6 (no real alternatives here because of QxB and exf) 23.d5 the d-pawn's defended, so Black's got to deal with the attack on the bishop.

The problem is that Black can't, really. After 23....g6 24.Qg5 +- is killing due to adding the Qd8 threat, 23....Rc5's pin is ineffective due to leaving f7: 24.Rxf7 +-.

So that leaves 23....Qb5. This pin's more serious as we can't just take e6 now. SF9 gives 24.Rd5! to allow dxB because of the back rank as well as defending d5. 24....Rd7 doesn't work because of 25.dxe6 Qxh5 26.exd7 with d8 +-. Clearing the back rank with 24....g6/h6 allows White to play 25.Qh4 +- with Qd8 and dxe6.

Kasparov's Rh4 wins, but allows Black to allow Qxh7 with some play 24.Rh4 Bxd5 25.Qxh7+ Kf8 26.Qh8+ Ke7 27.Qxg7 Qb6+ 28.Rd4 +- White's winning, but still has some work to do.

Aug-10-19  andrewjsacks: It's a shame this is a quick repeat, but thank you, CG, for doing a fine job with these in general.

  agb2002: I think I'll suggest a puzzle every time I find a repeated one. This is far more constructive and useful than complaining.

For example,

Level 4: 27... ?
Baburin vs Miles, 2000

<> could create a specific page for puzzle suggestions or enable a special format to find suggestions easily or automatically. In the example above

Level L: M[./...] ?
<game link>

where L is 1, 1.5, ..., 4 and M is the move number. A single dot means 'White to play', else 'Black to play'. The question mark followed by the game link ends the suggestion format.

The inclusion of the FEN (from settings, below the game listing) is not necessary but could be useful:

  thegoodanarchist: If I can't get 22.e6!! by now, after at least 3 tries, I never will get it.

Oh, look, I got it...

  Sargon: Friday’s puzzle was a repeat (an error by the puzzle-master), and this triggered a situation which resulted in a repeat of Saturday’s and Sunday’s puzzles, due to the program logic. I’m going to try and make an adjustment to ensure this issue doesn’t recur.
