Sep-10-04  The King Returns: I can't believe I got this one...and under 30 seconds. Even the Monday puxzzles take me longer than that. And I'm not sure I've ever gotten a Friday puzzle before. Maybe I'm actually learning something and I don't even know it! Or maybe there's just something about this position that appeals to me.

  Gypsy: <Does Nb5 accomplish the same thing?> A key difference between 27.Nd6 and 27.Nb5 is that while after 27.Nd6 the two mating threads, 28.Qxd7# and 28.Nc7#, can not be both stopped, after <27.Nb5 Be7> Black king can retreat to f8 and there is no immediate mate.
Sep-10-04  Hoozits: Thank you, Gypsy. I failed to see the necessity of covering the f8 square with the knight.
Sep-10-04  ThomYorke: I think this puzzle was not so complicated cause we had only three candidate moves: Qd6, Ne6 and Qxd7. And it´s easy to see the combination to the correct move. (Ne6)
Sep-10-04  RisingChamp: Oh that way I saw it.I thought u meant 5 different threats to mate.
Sep-10-04  Mistereous1: I got this one, more so from instinct than knowing what the continuation would be. I knew there needed to be mofe pieces involved and Ne6 put both the Knight and the Rd1 into play. I was a little lost from there...didn't realize Nc7 was a mate.

  kevin86: After Bxc6,Nc7#-about as subtle a mate you could ever see! It sneaks up on you like a snake!!
Sep-10-04  Lanceter: I saw the solution immediately, and I'm a weak fish. Alas, if only someone would whisper in my ear during my games, "pssst, you have a winning move..." :-/
Sep-10-04  RonB52734: Returning to the subject of 25...bxc5, white's response of 26.Qc6+ (not 26.Qxa8) will cost black both rooks for the bishop. That's probably decisive, particularly with the pieces white will be able to bring into the attack.
Sep-10-04  Knight13: I thought it was Qxd7.
Sep-10-04  alexandrovm: me too, beautiful mate!
Sep-10-04  clocked: <RonB52734> you shouldn't use the 'Deep' version of Patzer on a single processor. Putting patzers in parallel actually decreases their strenght, as not even a bad plan can be formed.
Sep-10-04  RonB52734: <JustAFish> raised the question of black's 25th move. I've had some more time now to toy with the question, with the help of my computer program, Deep Patzer 2.0, and it tells me that 25...Ra7 beats the heck out of either 25...Rb8 or 25...bxc5. Having the black a-rook on the 7th rank is a splash of cold water on the continuations to today's puzzle, which generally involve a white piece moving to -- yes -- the 7th rank to give mate (see <Patzer2>'s post about the 5 mating threats, all ending on the 7th rank). Unfortunately, Deep Patzer is so slow that it is right now at 11-ply and the next move it is evaluating after 30.Nc6 is 30...go-get-a-hamburger, and it will probably take it 45 minutes to realize that 31.Quadruple-bypass-surgery is a clear refutation. But still, it sees white as ahead by about a piece after 25...Ra7.

P.S. Won't someone please buy me Fritz 8 for Christmas??

Sep-10-04  RonB52734: Lol <clocked>! Sorry I revised my post, and now it looks like you read my mind! But the truth, dear readers, is that Deep Patzer is so slow that other kibitzers can actually post responses to my analysis before I have my analysis.
Sep-10-04  clocked: <RonB52734> strange, your copy must have a bug...Patzer is notorious for playing fast.
Sep-10-04  RonB52734: Too funny, <clocked>. Incidentally, see my kibitzes to Larry Evans vs C Pilnick, 1946 for the pedigree of Deep Patzer 2.0
Sep-10-04  maoam: <Gypsy>

27.♘b5 was my solution to this puzzle and I checked that line (assuming I'd made a mistake) beginning 27...♗e7 with Crafty; in fact, White mates with 28.♕xd7 ♔f8 29.♕d8! ♖xd8 30.♖xd8#.

  Gypsy: Sorry if I caused a confusion by my vague wording <maoam>. By 'immediate' I ment 'truly immediate'; that is, on move 28. And thanks for pointing out the completion of the Nb5 line. (Btw, I view the Nb5 solution as being as valid as the Ne6 line is; I just wanted to point out a little tactical nuance, the extra coverage of f8 by Nd6 which could be critical at other times.)

There seems to be something in human mind that causes certain type of mental blindness -- as soon as we see a solution to a problem, this something makes us to latch onto that solution and often completely cuts out other possible lines from consideration.

Sep-11-04  RisingChamp: <Lanceter> Dont we all! I am sure I can get almost any tactical puzzle from a game( if I know there is something to find)The tough part is finding it in a real game with all the tension,the clock ticking and no captions saying white to play and win.
Sep-20-04  nowroz hasan shammi: give us some puzzle for everybody everyday.
Sep-21-04  Lawrence: Hi <nowroz hasan shammi>, welcome. There IS a puzzle for everybody every day--only problem is, some of us can't solve them.
Jan-15-09  WhiteRook48: Adianto's moves make no sense...

  plang: 9..Ng4?! 10 e5 is a very sharp, theoretical line though after 14..Bf8 White certainly seems to have more than sufficient compensation for the pawn. The game followed Gelfand-Salov Madrid 1996 through 19 f5. Salov played 19..exf and Gelfand went on to win a nice game. 19..Bh4 seems like an improvement though the whole line looks suspect for Black. Krasenkov felt that the best defense would have been giving up the queen with 22..Bd7 23 Rfe1..Qd5 24 Ne6..Bxe6 25 Rxd5..Bxd5 though, of course, White would still have had a big advantage (Krasenkov does not mention 23..Qb7!?; perhaps 24 Bd6?). Krasenkov finished in a 7 way tie for second with 7-2 a full point behind Igor Khenkin.
