Jan-30-06  Fan of Leko: Black played like under 12 yr old (3..h6 is beginner move, the rest not much better)but white played very well for that age.
Jan-30-06  vmur2000: Thats a nice song by blondie."Wont you take me to funkytown"
Jan-30-06  Cogano: Hello <OhioChessFan> and I hope this finds you well. I most enthusiastically agree. Today's was most easy, too easy. I can't wait to see tomorrow's. Take care and have a great day. Cheers!

  Moondoll: Hooray for Monday. Nothing like an easy puzzle to make me feel good about the week. Also, i didn't do very well on last week's puzzles. 34...Qxa5?? What was black's better response?
Jan-30-06  apawnandafool: YEE HAW! I'm so fast, I did this one in just over 4.2 kiloseconds!!! I'm so GRATE!

  patzer2: Lahno's 36. Qxh6+ makes for a quick two-move mate.
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: Lahno was 11 when she played this. I think that most of you at the age of 11 could have found this move only in a case it was given to you as a puzzle, but never otb. So don't shout "easy!"
Jan-30-06  Castle In The Sky: TGIM. A good booster for the fragile patzer ego!
Jan-30-06  Cogano: <alexmagnus> Thank you for reminding me of that. I hadn't realized she was that young when she played this game. That makes her achievement all the more remarkable for me. At that age, I'm not sure I would have found the solution, even if I was still presented with the relevant posi-tion as a puzzle! I will try to remember not to be so bold or arrogant or to boost my ego. I thought I always strove to conduct myself with humility. It would appear I am sadly mistaken. Thank you for holding me to the higher standard I've always aimed for. Take very good care and have a great day. Cheers!

  alexmagnus: Well <Cogano> you may be as ironical as you want but it will never chancge the circumstances... Watch kibitzing in different prodigies' games in their early years (at the age of 9-12) - everywhere such "cheapos" like Qh6 here are nearly praised, though - I agree - they are quite easy to see.

  kevin86: I saw this one in a breath:mate in one if he captures-36...♔xh6 37 ♖h3# or if he retreats 36...♔g8 37 ♖h8# simple as pie-at least to me.
Jan-30-06  Stelling: I'd like to play 35. Qf4 but 35. ... Qxc3! spoils it. With that said after the better defence black would still be in big trouble: 35. Qh3 h5
36. Qg3 Qc7
37. Qg5! with decisive advantage.
Jan-30-06  TopaLove: <LuckyBlunder>It´s not necessary to remove the defender cause of 37.♕h8#
Jan-30-06  Madman99X: I solved it. Same solution as mentioned above. I like Mondays.

  Richard Taylor: <iuventus: Man, I've never seen such crass kibitzing as there is today. It did'nt exactly get off to a good start did it? It's not even worth analysis. 37 Rh3# or 37 Qh8# - thank you and good night.> Don't be silly there is absolutelly no mate utill 16 moves. Don't be fooled by the apparent simplcity of the position!
Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: < patzer2: Lahno's 36. Qxh6+ makes for a quick two-move mate> I feel you also make the fatal error of too quick and superficial judgements of these very complex mating sequences -for example - White may absolutely and angrily refuse to play the check mate -why should he in fact? You assume a logical sequence...erroneously in my view. Chess -its has and can be/been shown - is not subject to the ordinary laws of logic...
Jan-30-06  mocasino: well sure, you all get it b/c its a puzzle and the answer is always the worst looking move. i'd like to see you figure it out in a real game
Jan-30-06  Chess Classics: <mocasino> It's the kind of thing people would see OTB. I'm pretty sure most of the kibitzers here would see that.

  al wazir: <jackmandoo: 35.Qxh6+!!! Quite possibly one of the deepest cominations in chess history.> Satire is only one level above puns on the humor scale, but that's apparently too high for some chessplayers.
Jan-31-06  elvire75: one second too! but always pleasing.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: <mocasino> Te stronger kibitzers have seen thousands of similar combinations - this is partly what is called the "corridor mate" - I studied this mate in book about mates ("The Art Of Checkmate" by Victor Kahn et al) when I was about 13 - I am now just about 58!) - there is also a book about mate edited by Tal. I played this combo in a 30 30 game OTB a couple of years ago.
Feb-01-06  Cogano: Hi <alexmagnus> and I hope this finds you well. Do forgive me sir, but I did not understand what you meant by your reply post to mine. And, for the record, I was not trying to be ironic, nor have I ever tried to be in all the time I've been on I was as sincere as it is humanly possible for me to be and tried my utmost best to articulate myself as clearly and effectively as it is humanly possible for me to do so. I sincerely regret the misunderstanding and I sincerely hope that I have caused you no offence. If I did, then you have my most abject and humblest apologies. Take very good care and have yourself a most joyous day, every day. Cheers!
May-20-06  LuckyBlunder: <Topalove> : You're absolutely right, guess I like horse meat too much :P
Apr-06-09  WhiteRook48: that is more of a warm-up for a Monday puzzle
Aug-16-11  sevenseaman: Wonderful! I would have missed the Q sac.
