Sep-14-21  Brenin: 30 ... Bxb2+ 31 Kxb2 Qc2+ 32 Ka1 b2 mate, or 32 Kh3 Qxa2 mate.
Sep-14-21  stacase: And Black's Rook just sat & watched.
Sep-14-21  Hercdon: I can?t get used to seeing Tuesday?s game at 9 PM on Monday
Sep-14-21  mel gibson: So easy it's not worth commenting as per yesterday.
Sep-14-21  Cheapo by the Dozen: <Hercdon>,

<Phony Benoni> is aging, as we all are, so perhaps it wasn't as easy for him to be first poster on midnight puzzles any more.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Also interesting--Black's opening move order allowed for a clever defense vs. the London System. 1...d5 and 2...c6 clear the way for 3...Qb6!, and if you already use the Slav Defense, 3.c4,Nf6 won't dismay you at all.

  Phony Benoni: <Cheapo> Waddya mean, aging? I won't be 70 for another couple of months!

  Jimfromprovidence: A good side puzzle begins on the same move
but with white having played 29 Qxb3 instead.

Black to play and win.

Sep-14-21  saturn2: <Jimfromprovidence:>

29...Rb8 attacks queen and the b2 pawn

  agb2002: White threatens Qxb3.

The black queen can reach c2 with tempo: 30... Bxb2+ 31.Kxb2 Qc2+ 32.Ka1 (32.Ka3 Qxa2#) 32... b2#.

Sep-14-21  Brenin: No ageism, please, <Cheapo>: I'm 75, and POTD-o'clock is 1am over here.

On the subject of age, Jennie Frenklakh was 13 or 14 when she played this game.

  Teyss: <Phony Benoni: First things first. It's Black to play. Got it.> 👏

<Phony Benoni: I won't be 70 for another couple of months!> Happy birthday!
You can print this kibitz, mail it to yourself and hopefully if Postal Service is fast for once, you'll have it on time.

Too bad you don't post that often, you're always fun to read.

<Brenin> Congrats, alive and kicking at 75! Sincerely, the sharp analyses don't show your age.

Sep-14-21  Johnraho: 24. ….d4
Very nice

  gawain: I could see only one candidate move. Fortunately it was the right move.
Sep-14-21  1g1yy: <gawain: I could see only one candidate move. Fortunately it was the right move.>

Actually, I also looked at Nxd5 as well, and it leads to some very interesting carnage, but it doesn't end in #...

Sep-14-21  saturn2: <1g1yy:

Probably losing after 31.Bd1 with two black pieces attacked. Even 31...Nc3 does not help then.

  drollere: <jimofprovidence: Black to play and win.>

thanks for posting this, i wondered about that same move myself. i can only find 29. Qxb3 Qe4+, 30. Ka1 Qxe2, 31. a3 Rh3

Sep-14-21  dhotts: White was happy to be mated; otherwise, he would lose his Queen on the next move.

If 29 Qxb3 then 29...Rb8 wins.

This is winning only because the queen is covering the rook. One interesting variation is after 30 Ng5+.

Black can play 30...Kg8 or more simply 30...Bxg5.

Sep-15-21  Nullifidian: 30... ♗xb2+ 31. ♔xb2 ♕c2+ 32. ♔a1 (♔a3 ♕xa3#) ♙b2#
