Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-04-02  bishop: A great finishing move. 27.Qc2 was already losing as after 27...Rc7 any Queen move would be met by 28...Qxb3.
Apr-01-03  Shadout Mapes: 29.fxe3 Qxe3+ 30.Qf2 (30.Kf1 Rf7+, 30.Kh2 Qe1#) Qxf2+ 31.Kxf4 Rxc4 and it's an easy game.
Mar-08-04  Shadout Mapes: Imagine my surprise as I look at today's puzzle, think for a few minutes, find the winning move, and find that I already solved this puzzle almost a year ago.

  Honza Cervenka: Nice shot.
Mar-08-04  AdrianP: ... I misread the caption and thought it was *White* to play and win and was looking at the obvious Rxc7 and thought that the point may have been ...Ne3?!, thinking that there may be a perpetual after fxe3 (there isn't). So, in puzzlement, I decided to have a look at the solution, and worked out my mistake. At least, I had found the winning idea of ...Ne3!

  patzer2: Better than the 27. Qc2?? blunder (see bishop's post above) was 27. Qd1, conceding a clear black advantage but avoiding immediate disaster.

Earlier perhaps 25. Rb5 or 25. Rb1 might have offered White enough counterplay on the b-file to fight for equality, even though 25...Rfc7 would have given Black a death grip on the c-file along with the looming threats of R...c2 and N...d5 and complete domination of the position

  patzer2: According to the opening explorer, White's 13. Nd2?! may be an opening error. White lost all three games in which 13. Nd2?! was played, but won 52.2% and drew 34.8% after playing 13. a4! One game to illustrate the potential of 13. a4! (against the very same Black winner here) is E Najer vs Le Valdes, 2003.
Mar-08-04  artemis: I don't think that the fact that the three games in the chess games data base are a large enough area to base an analysis on. I do, however, agree that a4 is the stronger move here.
Mar-08-04  ezumpf: I missed this. But I came up with 28.Nd4. Looks good to me. Any thoughts?
Mar-08-04  fatbaldguy: I think Nd4 doesn't work because 29 N:d4 R:c4 30 Q:c4 Qb1 runs into 31 Qf1 - I don't feel like analyzing the resulting endgame but it looks good for white.

  patzer2: After 28...Nd4?! 29. Nxd4 Rxc4 30. Qxc4 Qb1+ 31. Qf1 QxQ 32. KxQ exd4, White has slightly the better of the endgame. Much better is 28...Ne3! with a sure Black win.
Mar-08-04  Checkmate123: Yea, Nd4 is not the best move. Ne3 gives a decisive victory. Nice puzzle.
Mar-08-04  Dillinger: I personally don't mind the repeated puzzles. I can't check every day and I don't feel like going back to the archives to check out old puzzles. I just assume if I missed a good one it will be back at some point.
Aug-16-09  Xeroxx: Woo! totally awesome last move.
