Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-31-07  beatles fan: pleim got completly slaughtered
Mar-31-07  dzechiel: Disappointed!!! I think the last move of the game should have been 17 Nhf6+ setting up the queen sacrifice and the Arabian mate!
Mar-31-07  LivBlockade: <dzechiel> But after 17 Nhf6+ gxh5; Black's Bishop now defends h7, so where's the mate?
Mar-31-07  Rubenus: Surprising that their level is almost 1800. They can't play on women's olympiads, remember?
Mar-31-07  Autoreparaturwerkbau: <LivBlockade> Nice find :)
Mar-31-07  Confuse: what happens after Bxh7 on move 16? i really dont get it : (
Mar-31-07  flamboyant: Bd3 probably
Mar-31-07  geraldo8187: <confuse> 17. Be3 and mate is unstoppable at h7
Mar-31-07  backyard pawn: <Confuse: what happens after Bxh7 on move 16? i really dont get it> I think after 16..., Bxh7; 17 Bd3 which now attacks the pinned bishop on h7. There are now two attackers on Black's paralysed bishop, with no good way to add a defender, or prevent mate: interposing 17..., Rf5; 18 Bxf5, Qg8; 19 Bg6+, Qh7; 20 Qxh7#
Mar-31-07  Confuse: Ah thank you guys : ) such an obvious move haha. silly me!
Mar-31-07  Ashram64: very nice attack, that's why you avoid italian game!
Mar-31-07  Chessmensch: Backyard Pawn: Is there an error on your move 19Bg6+? Either that or I have something very wrong on my board. It appears black would have to make that move putting herself in check.
Mar-31-07  milk4meman: or another way was 17.Ng5+ gxh6 18.Rh7+ Kg8 19.Ne7#

  fm avari viraf: <milk4memam 17.Ng5+ gxh6 18.Rh7+ Kg8 19.Ne7#> Well after 17.Ng5+ gxh5 [that's what u meant] 18.Rh7+ [not Kg8] but Bxh7 & there is no mate. If 17...Bxd4 avoiding mate on g7 then 18.Nhf6#. So my friend milk4me2!
Mar-31-07  Crowaholic: Hello backyard pawn,

I don't understand the line you posted either. After Qg8, Bg6 is possible, but it's not a check and it doesn't make much sense to me. I guess White would respond to Qg8 with Nf6, and it seems the best defense for Black is then Bxd4, sacrificing the queen, in full:

18...Qg8 19. Nf6 Bxd4 20. Nxg8 Kxg8 21. Qxh7+ Kf8 22. Rxb7 (e.g.)

followed by either Qh8# or Qf7#, depending on whether black moves the g pawn.

Mar-31-07  Crowaholic: Note that in case of 19. Nf6 gxf6 there is 20. Rxh7+ Qxh7 (only move) and 21. Qxh7#
Apr-01-07  backyard pawn: <Crowaholic><Chessmensch> Okay, okay! You caught me pretending to know what I was talking about, trying to sort through the moves without a board.

Right you are, that after <Confuse>'s 16..., Bxh7, and the line I started with 17 Bd3, Rf5; 18 Bxf5, Qg8; I got tangled up in the cobwebs in my mind. Your suggestion of 19. Nf6 appears the best, and the rest of the nonsense I previously posted is rubbish. Also another alternative might be 19.Nf4, intending to check with Ng6+, though I'll leave that one unfinished. Thanks for setting me straight!

Apr-01-07  kevin86: I seem to remember a great race horse called :Charismatic,who fell just short of the Triple Crown. Here,the "horse" is quite a big part of the win.
