  FSR: Heh - 39.Rc8+ would have worked equally well.

  Phony Benoni: Mating possibility if we lure the queen from c8. 40.Ne7+ does nothing, though.

Try reversing moves. Ah, <40.Rc8+> lures the queen to c8 instead, with the sequel <40...Qxc8 41.Ne7+ Kf8 42.Nxc8.> And if Black's d-pawn gets uppity, the White king can deal with it.

Aug-07-17  ChessHigherCat: Patzer sees a c8, patzer plays a c8, and eats the queen with a fork for dessert
Aug-07-17  ChessHigherCat: <FSR: Heh - 39.Rc8+ would have worked equally well.>

Good point. I thought Rxb7 was clever but he had even better.

Aug-07-17  stst: No direct kill, but gain significant gain in material: 40.Rc8+ QxR (forced)
41.Ne7+ forks Q,K ===> Q gone.
The rest is trivial.

  agb2002: White has a rook and a knight for the queen and a pawn.

Black threatens h5 and Qxb5.

White can win decisive material with 40.Rc8+ Qxc8 41.Ne7+ Kf8 42.Nxc8.

Aug-07-17  AlicesKnight: 40.Rc8+ forces ....Qxc8 whereupon 41.Ne7+ wins the Q, and the Black d-pawn is one file too close to the K to help.

<40.Rc8+> followed by the Knight fork <41.Ne7+> and White, a piece up, wins

No, you idiot! 43.Kf1! and White is winning

Aug-07-17  Cheapo by the Dozen: Winning will still take a bit of technique. White may never queen the b-pawn, so he has to be vicious in cleaning up Black's pawns while letting the b-pawn go.
Aug-07-17  malt: 40.Rc8+, for the knife and
41.Ne7+ with the fork
Aug-07-17  groog: Malt, he he he, nice.

  Fusilli: <FSR: Heh - 39.Rc8+ would have worked equally well.> Yes, and the availability of two equally strong moves makes move 39 an inadequate puzzle. Hence the puzzle was on move 40, for a Monday.

  kevin86: Monday puzzle: white wins the queen by a fork after rook sac. Easy as pi

  Bobby Spassky: FSR: Heh - 39.Rc8+ would have worked equally well.

No it wouldn't.

  takchess: I can't say "I can't believe this is a Monday Puzzle". This is just right for a Monday. Cheers.
Aug-07-17  Iwer Sonsch: No mate in sight.
40.Rc8+ Qxc8 41.Ne7+ and 42.Nxc8 appears to be the best combination White has, leaving him a Knight for two pawns up.
Aug-07-17  Iwer Sonsch: For one pawn*

No it wouldn't.>

Please explain why not.
