Nov-27-14  Coriolis: I got 22.Nf7 but didn't quite visualize all the way to move 65. Can I still claim that: "I shot A. wohl"?
Nov-27-14  diagonalley: one has to admire black's tenacity in fighting back to draw!
Nov-27-14  SimonWebbsTiger: the cute stalemate is reminiscent of the variation possible in the famous J Hickl vs Solomon, 1988
Nov-27-14  Dr. J: <abuzic: 22.Nxf7 Kxf7? 23.Qxh7+ Kf6 24.Rd5 Qc7 25.Rg5 Qf4 26.Rxg6+ Ke5 27.Qh5+ Kd6 28.Qd5+ Kc7 29.Qxc6+ Kb8 30.Bf3 Nc5 31.Qa8+ Kc7 32.Qxa7+ Bb7 33.Rgxe6 a true massacre (*)

In this line after 24...Qc7 white had many winning choices like 25.Bc2, Qh4+, Rd3, Re3; and after the game's 25.Rg5 Qf4 26.Rxg6+ Ke5 27.Bf3+ Kd6 28.Rg4 <instead of the game's 28.Rxe6+?> should win: 28...Qf5 29.Rd1+ Kc7 30.Qe7 Qe5(**) 31.Re4 Rde8(***) 32.Qxd7+ Bxd7 33.Rxe5>

You have provided 6 strong alternative continuations for White, but I'm not yet convinced any of them is a forced win: e.g., at (*) Black has 33...Rd6 (34.Re7+ Rd7 35.Rxd7+ Kxd7 36.b4 (36.Bxb7?? Qxf2+) Ra8 37.Qxb6 Bxf3) and at (**) and (***) Black has 30 (or 31)...Qc5. Can you provide more analysis to finish this off?

By the way, what do you think of my earlier suggestion (after 28.Rxe6+ Kc7 29.Re4 Qf7) 30.Qh4?

P.S. I like today's problem, but I don't think it's Thursday-level at all.

Nov-27-14  wooden nickel: This game is interesting in many ways, after White's move 20. Be4, the variation 20. ... Bxe4 21. Rxd7 and White is winning!


click for larger view

21. ... g5 (Rxd7? is worse 22. Nf6+ Kg7 23. Nxd7 forking the Black's queen and rook while the bishop is still hanging). Also the ending with R+2P vs R, demonstrates the difficulty of such positions. Nice Thursday puzzle!

Nov-27-14  sfm: Right now I am looking at 25.Bf5...
Nov-27-14  morfishine: Thanksgiving morning is one of my least favorite times to engage in exhausting mental chess exercises. I much prefer to focus on filling the house with the pleasing aroma emanating from a slow roasting bird. Soothing classical music meanders quietly in the background. Pressing thoughts melt away

In this environment, at least for me, chess satisfaction is arrived at through the intuitive sense and seeing if that 'hunch' is at least fairly close to what was played or should've been played...

As a base line I had <22.Nxf7> with the idea that 22...Kxf7 23.Qxh7+ just can't be good for Black

So I figured best for Black was 22...Rxf7 23.Qxd8 (White has won an exchange not fearing Black's threat against f2: 23...Qxf2+ 24.Kh1 Qc5)

Thats it for me, I hope you all have an enjoyable Holiday season!

*****

Nov-27-14  eblunt: Instead of the game 24. ♖d5, I had 24 ♕xg6+ ♔e7 25. ♗d5 as per <agb2002> I don't see how black stops the check on e6 without losing a lot of material
Nov-27-14  sfm: So,
25.Bf5,gxB
26.Qh6+,Kf7
27.Qxe6+,Kg7
28.Qe7,Rf7
29.Qg5+,Kf8
30.Rh5

White threatens Rh8 mate, to which there is no proper defense. Other Black alternatives are not better.

I am approx. 50% sure about the two above statements.

Nov-27-14  sfm: OK, I cheated. 30.Rh5 is not possible. But...

  scormus: cg, THANKS for GIVING us the turkey ;)
Nov-27-14  awfulhangover: Silly! I mean, taking the knight with the king is just too silly to be true. Much, much better is taking with the rook, and the comps agree with my patzer brain. How could white not win this?
Nov-27-14  abuzic: <Dr. J: You have provided 6 strong alternative continuations for White, but I'm not yet convinced any of them is a forced win: e.g., at (*) Black has 33...Rd6 (34.Re7+ Rd7 35.Rxd7+ Kxd7 36.b4 (36.Bxb7?? Qxf2+) Ra8 37.Qxb6 Bxf3) and at (**) and (***) Black has 30 (or 31)...Qc5. Can you provide more analysis to finish this off?

By the way, what do you think of my earlier suggestion (after 28.Rxe6+ Kc7 29.Re4 Qf7) 30.Qh4?>

At (*) 33...Rd6 34.Re7+ Rd7 <35.♖7e5!> (to be followed by ♖xc5+), if 35...♔c8 36.♕xb6 ♘e4 37.♖1xe4 ♗xe4 38.♖c5+ ♖c7 39.♗g4+ ♖f5

a. <39...Kd8 40.Qb8+ Ke7 41.Rxc7+ Qxc7 <(41...Kf6 or 41...Kd6 lead to mate comb after 42.Qb6+)> 42.Qxc7+ wins>;

b. <39...Bf5 40.g3 Qc1+ 41.Kg2 Rxc5 42.Qxc5+ Kd7 <42...Kb7 43.Bf3+ Kb8 44.Qxf8+> 43.Bxf5+ Rxf5 <(43...Ke8 44.Qe5+; or 43...Kd8 44.Qd6+ both lead to forced mate)> 44.Qxf5+ wins>

40.♖xc7+ ♕xc7 <40...Kd8 41.Qb8#> 41. ♕e6+ ♔d8 <41...Qd7 42.Qxe4> 42.♗xf5 ♗xf5 43.♕xf5 a clear winning position for white.

At (**) <30...Qc5> or at (***) <31...Qc5)> 30. (or 31).♖c4 and black loses the Q, if this leaves the a3-f8 diagonal then ♕d6#.

For the suggestion <30.Qh4> 30...Bb7, black at least got away from white's strong attack after white's 28.Rxe6+.

One of the alternative suggestions to 25.Rg5:
25.♗c2 ♕c6 26.♖g5 ♖g8 27.♕h4 ♔f7 28.♗xg6+ ♖xg6 29.♕h7+ ♔e8 30.♕xg6+ ♔e7 31.♕g7+ ♔d6 32.♖xe6+ ♔c7

<32...Kxe6 33.Rg6+ Kf5 <(33...Kd5 34.Qd4#)> 34.g4+ Kf4 35.Qh6+ Ke5 36.Qg5+ Ke4 37.Qf5#>

33.♖xc6+ wins

Nov-27-14  TheaN: Thursday 27/11 <22.?>

Material is even, white is ferociously aiming at the black kingside whilst the center is under control by the rooks.

The off-position of the knight on h6 suggests <22.Nxf7>. Upon immediate inspection, black's surrender of material does not do well at all, after 22....Rxf7? 23.Qxd8 Qxf2+ 24.Kh1 it is white in control, not black. This is also the easy way out for white.

Instead, <22....Kxf7 23.Qxh7+ Kf6> puts up a lot more fight and more resistance to the sacrifice. In fact, I opted for <24.Qxg6+?! Ke7 25.Bd5? Qxf2+ 26.Kh1 Nf6!<>> defending e6 and Black is much better.

White's text move <25.Rd5!> is amazingly strong. I had visioned this move as not working on move 26 and therefore discarded it, but once again turning the moves around works. Sadly, White falls into his own traps after <25....Qc7 26.Rg5?! > and the attack becomes much less potent. Instead, <26.Qh4+!> gives black enough headaches to work with and it's forced to boot (26.Bc2 involves the same idea).

All variations on 26.Qxh4+ give white a mate or enormous material advantage: the point is that white will sacrifice on g6, opening up the file for the rook. The major pieces will decide the game.

The most prominent line after <26.Qh4+> is <26....Kg7 27.Bxg6! Nf6! (defend h7) 28.Rg5 (threatening Be8#) Rd5! (the only proper way to attack the mating piece) 29.Rg3!! > keeps the discovered check intact and white will start to win loads of material (black is basically forced to take on g3 at one point). Do mind that in this variation, the last three moves from white are the only moves that keep up a +4 advantage, so he has to vision all of this. Regardless, white's premature Rg5 eventually drew him the game so he should have put more thought in his 26th move.

Nov-27-14  TheaN: Whoops, in my main post all moves from 25.Rd5 are one move earlier. Don't know where I made the miscalculation.

Nov-27-14  BOSTER: This is the pos. white to play 20.


click for larger view

The problem is: where to move bishop from d3?

Because white for attack need both rooks I would play 20.Bf1 to protect back rank.

After this 20...Bc6 21.Rxd7 Bxd7 22.Re5 Qd6 23.Qf6 h5 24.Rxh5 gxh5 25.Qg5+ Kh7 26.Nf6+ Kh8 27.Qh6#

Nov-27-14  abuzic: After 22.Nxf7 Kxf7 23.Qxh7+ Kf6 24.Rd5 Qc7,
<25.Rd3> is a very strong variation:

25...e5 26.Bd5! e4 27.Qh4+ Kg7 28.Qe7+ Rf7 (otherwise 29.Rh3#) 29.Qxf7+ Kh6 30.Rxe4 ....

25...g5 26.Rf3+ Ke5 27.Qg7+ Rf6 28.Rf5+ exf5 <28...Kd6 29.Rd1#) 29.Bf3+ Kf4 <29...Kd6 30.Qe7#> 30.Re3 Black move 31.g3#

25...Qc5 26.Rf3+ Ke5 27.b4 Qc4 28.Qe7 ...

25...Qe5 26.Rf3+ Kg5 27.Qxg6+ Kh4 28.Rh3# (to avoid mate black loses material like 26...Qf5 with no avail)

and to avoid all these, white has to give up the Q with 25...Qf4 or ...Ne5 ...

Nov-27-14  TheBish: N Delgado Ramirez vs A H Wohl, 2001

White to play (22.?) "Medium", even material.

The dark squares surrounding Black's king (f6 and h6) are somewhat weak, but that is not the target of White's attack.

22. Nxf7! Kxf7

If instead 22...Rxf7, White has 23. Qxd8. Also losing is 22...Rde8 23. Nd6 Rd8 24. Qe7+ Kh8 25. Qxe6 with two pawns and a dominating position.

23. Qxh7+ Kf6

A quicker loss is 23...Ke8 24. Bxg6+ Rf7 25. Qxf7#.

At this point the knockout punch was hard to find. (Could easily have been a "difficult" puzzle.) After the natural 24. Qxg6+ Ke7, Black is threatening 25...Qxf2+ and also is able to defend. The key is delaying this capture and instead bringing another attacker into the game with tempo.

24. Rd5!! Qc4

Or 24...exd5 25. Qxg6+ Ke7 (25...Ke5 26. Bd3+ mates) 26. Bf5+ with a forced mate in 3: 26...Qe3 27. Rxe3+ Ne5 28. Rxe5+ Be6 29. Qxe6#. Also if 24...Qc7, 25. Rd3! e5 26. Bd5 and the noose tightens.

25. Rd4 Qc7 26. Bc2! e5


click for larger view

27. Rf4+! Ke6

As Black is mated after 27...exf4 28. Qxg6#.

28. Bb3+ Kd6 29. Qxg6+ (finally!) Nf6 (or 29...Kc5 30. Rc4+) 30. Rxf6+ and Black is down three pawns with White's attack raging on.

Nov-28-14  Dr. J: <abuzic: 22.Nxf7 Kxf7? 23.Qxh7+ Kf6 24.Rd5 Qc7 25.Rg5 Qf4 26.Rxg6+ Ke5 27.Qh5+ Kd6 28.Qd5+ Kc7 29.Qxc6+ Kb8 30.Bf3 Nc5 31.Qa8+ Kc7 32.Qxa7+ Bb7 33.Rgxe6 Rd6 34.Re7+ Rd7 <35.R7e5!> (to be followed by Rxc5+), if 35...Kc8 36.Qxb6 Ne4 37.R1xe4 Bxe4 38.Rc5+ Rc7 39.Bg4+ Rf5 40.Rxc7+ Qxc7 41. Qe6+ Kd8 42.Bxf5 Bxf5 43.Qxf5 a clear winning position for white.>

Yes, but is 35...Kc8 (giving up a key pawn) really forced? Could Black play 35...Rb8? Or maybe it doesn't matter, since White already has 5 pawns for the piece?

Nov-28-14  patzer2: Solving yesterday's Thanksgiving puzzle (22. ?) is like attempting to eat a whole turkey without help -- a task easy to start but hard to finish.

Here's a look with Fritz 12:

<22. Nxf7! Kxf7> This is the easy and obvious beginning.

if 22...Rxf7?, then 23. Qxd8 .

<23. Qxh7+ Kf6>

If 23...Ke8??, then 24. Bxg6+ Rf7 25. Qxf7#.

<24. Rd5!!> This surprise move is best, but it's also where the puzzle gets complicated.

<24...Qc7>

If 24... exd5?, then 25. Qxg6+ Ke7 26. Bf5+ Ne5 27. Rxe5+ Be6 28. Qxe6#.

<25. Rg5> This should win, but Fritz 12 finds several stronger, winning alternative moves.

Best is 25.Bc2!! when play might continue 25...Rg8 (25... exd5?? 26. Qxg6#) 26. Rg5 Kxg5 27. Rxe6 Nf6 28. h4+ Kg4 29. f3+ Kg3 30. Qxc7+ Kxh4 31. Qf4+ Kh5 32. g4+ Kh4 33. Re2 Rd1+ 34. Bxd1 Nxg4 35. Rh2#.

Also strong is 25. Rd3!! when play might continue 25...Qf4 26. g3 Qg4 27. Rf3+ Ke5 (27... Kg5 28. Qxg6#) 28. Qe7 Nf6 29. Bb7+ Ne4 30. Qc7+ Rd6 31. Qg7+ Rf6 32. Qxf6#.

<25... Qf4! 26. Rxg6+ Ke5 27. Bf3+ Kd6 28. Rgxe6+?!> White's winning chances are diminished after this tempting but less than "best" move.

Instead, 28. Rg4! keeps the win intact when play could continue 28...Qf5 29. Rd1+ Kc7 30. Qe7 Qe5 31. Re4 Rde8 32. Qxd7+ Bxd7 33. Rxe5 .

<28... Kc7 29. R6e4 Qf7 30. Qxf7 Rxf7 31. h4 Kb8 32. Re8 Rxe8 33. Rxe8 Nf6 34. Rd8 Kc7 35. Rd4 Be6 36. b3 Nd7 37. Bd5 Nc5 38. Bxe6 Nxe6 39. Re4 Nc5 40. Re3 Kd6 41. g4 Ne6 42. Kg2 Nf4+ 43. Kg3 Nd5 44. Rd3 Ke5 45. f3 b5 46. h5 a5 47. c4 bxc4 48. bxc4 Nb4 49. Rd2 a4 50. a3 Nc6 51. Rd5+ Ke6 52. Rc5>

White missed a strong winning chance with 52. h6!! when play might continue Ra7 53. f4 Ne7 54. f5+ Kf6 55. h7 Kg7 56. f6+ $1 Kxh7 57. fxe7 Rxe7 58. Kf4 .

<52... Nd4 53. f4 Ne2+ 54. Kf3 Nxf4 55. Ke4 Nh3 56. Rc6+ Kd7 57. Rg6 Nf4 58. Ra6 Ne6 59. Ke5>

White misses another winning opportunity with 59. Ra7+! when play might continue 59...Ke8 60. Rxf7 Kxf7 61. Kd5 Ke7 62. c5 Kd7 63. c6+ Ke7 64. Ke5 Nc7 65. h6 Kf7 66. Kd6 Nb5+ 67. Kd7 Kg6 68. g5 .

<59... Nc7 60. Rxa4 Rf1 61. h6 Re1+ 62. Kf5 Rf1+ 63. Kg6 Ne6 64. Ra7+ Ke8 65. Ra8+>

Another missed winning opportunity is 65. g5!, when play might continue 65...Nf8+ 66. Kh5 Rh1+ 67. Kg4 Rc1 68. Rc7 Rg1+ 69. Kf5 Rf1+ 70. Ke4 Rg1 71. Rg7 Re1+ 72. Kd5 Rd1+ 73. Kc6 Rh1 74. a4! Ne6 75. Rg8+ Ke7 76. a5 Nd4+ 77. Kb7 Ne6 78. a6 Nc5+ 79. Kb6 .

<65... Ke7 66. h7>

Stronger is 66. g5! Nf4+ 67. Kh7 Ne6 68. Ra7+ Ke8 69. Kg6 .

<66... Rf6+ 67. Kh5 Ng7+ 68. Kg5 Ne6+ 69. Kh4 Rh6+ 70. Kg3 Nf8 71. Ra7+ Ke8 72. g5 Rh1 73. Kf4 Nxh7 74. g6 Nf6 75. Kf5 Nh5 76. g7 Nxg7+ 77. Rxg7>

It's really complex here. According to the online shredder endgame table base, Black must play 77...Re1! = to force the draw.

<77...Kd8?!> According to the shredder table base, Black now loses in 39 moves. However, as this game shows it's not so easy for White to find the win.

<78. Ke5 Rd1 79. Rg4 Kc7 80. Rd4 Rh1 81. Rd3 Kc6 82. Kd4 Rc1 83. Rh3 Rd1+ 84. Kc3 Rb1 85. Rh6+ Kc5 86. Rh5+ Kc6 87. a4 Rc1+ 88. Kd3 Ra1 89. a5 Rc1 90. Rg5 Rd1+ 91. Kc2 Ra1 92. Kb2 Ra4 93. Kc3 Ra1> At 31 depth Fritz 12 indicates White has a winning +3.86 advantage. However, the 6 piece shredder table base correctly indicates it's a draw.

<94. a6 Kb6 95. Rg2 Rxa6 96. Rg6+ Kc5 1/2-1/2>

Nov-28-14  abuzic: <Dr. J:
Yes, but is 35...Kc8 (giving up a key pawn) really forced? Could Black play 35...Rb8? Or maybe it doesn't matter, since White already has 5 pawns for the piece?>

Position after 35.R7e5


click for larger view

<35...Kc8> defends against 36.Rxc5+? bxc5 and black is relieved! any other 35...move loses to Rxc5+. For example:

1) <35...Qc4> 36.Rxc5+ Qxc5 <36...Kd8, ...Kd6, ...bxc5 lead to #2> 37.Qxb7+ Kd8 <37...Kd6 38.Rd1+> 38.Qb8+ Qc8 39.Qxx8+ Kxx8 40.Bg4, and white is up 5♙s and will regain the exchange.

2) <35...Rb8> accelerates the finish after 36.Rxc5+ Kd8 <36...bxc5 37.Qa5+ Kc8 <(37...Kd6 38.Qb6+ Bc6 39.Qxc6#)> 38.Re8+ Rd8 39.Rxd8#> 37.Qxb6+ Rc7 <37...Qc7 38.Qf6+ Re7 39.Qf8+ Kd7 40.Qxe7+ Kc8 41.Bg4#> 38.Rxc7 Qxc7 39.Qf6+ Kc8

<40...Kd7 41.Bg4#> 40.Re1+ Kd7 41.Qe6#
