(A) 1.Bf4

(B) 1.Bg5 overlooking the weak <h2> square

I left a message for you at your forum

(A) 1.Bf4

(B) 1.Bg5 overlooking the weak <h2> square>

Wot a flourish! That is very stylish batting.

  agb2002: White has a knight for a bishop.

Black is probably considering 17... Re8+ followed by ... Nd7 and ... Rad8 to complete development.

Quick pattern recognition yields 17.Ne7+ Kh8 18.Rxh7+ Kxh7 19.Rh1#.

Nov-22-11  morfishine: <sevenseaman> I see you are back on track, nailing one puzzle after another.

I've much enjoyed your references lately to your "jalopy"...very funny! :)

  whiteshark: Castling wasn't the best choice, me thinks.
Nov-22-11  zb2cr: Anastasia's mate! I found this one in about 5 seconds. Nothing to say beyond what other posters have already mentioned.
Nov-22-11  mohannagappan: mate in three! 17. Ne7+ Kh8 18.Rxh7+ Kxh7 19.Rh1++
Nov-22-11  Pensive: I'm always struck by how important pattern recognition is. I saw this pattern in Silman book and said to myself "who is he kidding? That would never come up in a real game"

But seeing Anastasia's Mate all those years ago has helped me win numerous games, and most importantly, solve this problem

Nov-22-11  newshutz: No history information, and I don't know if all the named mating patterns are here, but these three pages have a lot of them:

Nov-22-11  Marmot PFL: One of the basic mates, but black was caught unaware.
Nov-22-11  squaresquat: This has the name of the Martyred princess Romanov; daughter of Nicholas II, murdered by Commies. Hence it echos the terror tactics of the Bolsheviks. Suicide bombers force people out of their shelter where they are mercilessly gunned down.`It's just good chess;sacrifice to pry something out into the open. I found the answer in a few seconds. I laughed.
Nov-22-11  Patriot: 17.Ne7+ Kh8 18.Rxh7+ Kxh7 19.Rh1#

<morfishine> Good one!

<David2009> We all miss things from time to time. I'm wondering how the queen and rook are eyeing h2. Did the h-file just become opened or did the queen just move to d6? Maybe NxN/g6 hxg6? I can see how a re-capture can cause one to overlook new threats in the position. Sometimes we only see the re-capture, not new threats it generated. Because I suspect you wouldn't have over-looked the threat if ...Qd6 were played unless this was a speed game. I over-looked the threat at first and sometimes do this with puzzles, because puzzles don't tell you what the previous move was. When you said it was a Tuesday kind of puzzle, that told me it was easy and there's probably a quick knock-out so I skipped the question that asks "What are my opponent's threats?" But I eventually got there and saw that 1.Bf4 looks correct.

Nov-22-11  soberknight: Solved it and got a chuckle out of black's castling blunder. I'm moving my king to safety, he thinks.

  kevin86: An easy mate in three via the Anastasia's Mate:

17 ♘e7+ ♔h8 18 ♖xh7+ ♔xh7 19 ♖h1#.

The sleeping rook's first move is to mate!

Nov-22-11  Skafi: Hi, does anybody know why <Once> isn't kibitzing these days?
Nov-22-11  JoergWalter: he did the kibitzing <once>
Nov-22-11  mrcountman: I have now gotten two in a row extremely quickly... Maybe I will have half a chance later in the week.

  gawain: Oh wow! I like this one. After a couple of very brief false starts I saw how it goes. 17 Ne7+ Kh8 18 Rxh7+ followed by 19 Rh1#. The e7 knight covers the escape squares. Nifty.
Nov-22-11  BOSTER: <dzechiel> <I don't get the difficult problems>.

I know that you play here during many years,and many players respect your opinion. Your comments are popular here, and even ,when you don't have enough time to find the <POTD> solution you always have an alibi-your wife.

After this introduction I want ask you a question.
How you know <CG> has 617,000 chess games. To be represented here is a big luck.
I know many outstanding chess players haven't been represented here.

Nevertheless,during couple weeks the name Goldsby is always here. Who is he? Maybe this is a new superstar, or maybe this is a new brand. What is the reason for such advertising? Any suggestions?

Nov-22-11  Nemesistic: 17.Ne7+ ..kh8 18.Rxh7+ ..kxR (forced) 19.kh1#.

Help me out here. Are you saying that to have one's game listed in the CG database is luck? I suppose that's partially true. I have one game in the CG database, but it's only because it was played against Reshevsky.

But I think that if you are an outstanding player, your games will find their way here. I don't know of any great players who are not represented.

<Nevertheless,during couple weeks the name Goldsby is always here. Who is he? Maybe this is a new superstar, or maybe this is a new brand. What is the reason for such advertising? Any suggestions?>

I'm not sure I understand your question. We all know of frequent contributor AJ Goldsby. He has paid his chess dues and has had more success than I have ever had over the board. I'm uncertain what you mean by "advertising". If you are trolling, please don't. Otherwise, can you be more clear?

Nov-22-11  King Death: <BOSTER> It can be bad luck in a sense to be strong and not have any games listed here, because a lot of masters who played before computers collected tons of games probably aren't represented here at all. Here's a guy who could play and is the same age I am but didn't play much after the mid 1970s. Jeffrey A Kent

One game, and he was stronger than a lot of players with more games listed here. Another player I remember back then was John Hoggatt, and he has no games at cg.

Nov-22-11  ChessNewbie55: after spending much time with trainingbot, it almost feels like a monday everyday ;-)
Nov-23-11  BOSTER: To be represented by <CG> means to be on the <CG> page:<POTD>,<GOTD>,<Kibitzer>,but not only in the <CG> library among 617,000 chess games.

I don't see you,Goldsby and myself among the outstanding chess players.

You didn't understand my questions completely, but ,nevertheless, I read your <thought process>. For me it was nice "conversation".

But like in <Material even> "dilemma" we still interpret various familiar terms in different ways. Thanks for answer.
