Nov-14-05  alexandrovm: Queen sac follow with a mate with the rook in two moves, very nice...
Nov-14-05  Stevens: i saw 27.Ng5 before 27.Qxh7+. From what i can see this works just as well since it forks the mating square on h7 and the black queen.

Of course, the queen sac is also good... ;-)

Nov-14-05  ReikiMaster: <SamuelS: The first move I looked at was 27. Qf6+, but after remembering that it was Monday...> Oh dear! I forgot that and settled for 27.Rf4. How embarrassing!
Nov-14-05  YouRang: Nice 'n easy -- The only thing that made it a little hard was that white seems to have a number of winning moves. The questions is, "which wins fastest?".
Nov-14-05  Robin01: 27.Qxh7+ seem the best; fast and simple! I found it fairly fast.
Nov-14-05  lopium: I've found Ng5. Yes it win I think, too. nsteinme

  kevin86: Mannheimer gets "steamrolled" by white's rooks! Fine queen sac wraps it up.
Nov-14-05  centercounter: I think in this position, White should refuse Black's resignation if he has played on this long.
Nov-14-05  Guest1800: Why are these types of puzzles always attacking? I think chessgames should run defensive puzzles as well: Drawing or stalemating from a losing position. That would be interesting! It's fun to make a stalemate from a losing position. I lose a lot, so it's fun when I manage a draw.

Nov-14-05  sinthetiq: mondays are the best!
Nov-14-05  BoytownBrooks: Gotta love Mondays....
Nov-14-05  YouRang: <chesscounter> I was wondering the same thing. If he came this far, why resign now? :-|
Nov-14-05  Edi74: A beautiful game! A real easy monday puzzle, let's see what the week brings... :-)
Nov-14-05  notyetagm: A lovely queen sacrifice to open the h-file for the swinging White g4-rook: 27 ♕xh7+! ♔xh7 28 ♖h4+ ♕h5 29 ♖xh5#. A simple corridor mate results: the g1-rook covers the g-file and the h5-rook takes the h-file.
Nov-14-05  BadTemper: 27 Qf6+ even forces mate on g8 or h7.
Nov-14-05  zb2cr: Count me among the 27. Nf6 crowd. I thought, "Okay, it threatens mate next move and the only way Black can avoid it is to give up his Queen. How much more forcing can you get?"


Nov-14-05  DaVinciCodePHI1.618: I also got the following 27. ♕f6+(!) ♕xf6 28. ♘xf6...
Nov-14-05  apoorv: i also got 27. Nf6, which also wins, but slower than the queen sac
Nov-14-05  midknightblue: "everything wins."
i have heard this said before in chess. Is this a famous quote said by anyone in particular?
Nov-14-05  HannibalSchlecter: If you picked Nf6 or Qxh7+ give yourself a gold star. Actually Nf6 is faster in most variations, threatening to mate next move.
Nov-14-05  snowie1: Normally, I like to see if another line might mate besides text, but this one is only 2 moves to mate. Having said that, some like to steal his wife first, after having a won game.

  patzer2: The recent puzzle solution 27. Qxh7+! is a sort of back rank mate, only using the h-file in place of a "back rank."
Premium Chessgames Member
  patzer2: White's 16. Nxg7! is a winning demolition of pawn structure combination.

The immediate threat is 16... Nxg7 17. Bh6! Bf6 18. Nd5 Kh8 19. Nxf6 Qxf6 20. Bxg7+ .

Dec-22-15  yureesystem: What a wonderful attack, these past masters there is a lot to learn from their games,and very exciting and pleasing game.
May-06-18  Toribio3: Explosive attack was demonstrated by GM Tarrasch. I like this game!
