Jun-04-13  morfishine: <32.Rxd6+> The dam breaks

<32...Kxd6> Black also loses after 32...Ke7 33.Rxd8

<33.Qd5+ Ke7> Forced <34.Qe6#> A pleasing finish

Jun-04-13  gofer: I thought this was a simple two rook sacrifice for a queen and bishop, but white has a major bank rank weakness, so 32 Rxd6+ Kxd6 33 Rd2+ Ke2 34 Rxd8 Rxd8 35 Qxc7 Rd7 and white has to be careful. Luckily, black cannot accept the rook sacrifice!

<32 Rxd6+ ...>

32 ... Kxd6
33 Qd5+ Ke7
34 Qe6#

<32 ... Ke7>
<33 Rxd8 Rxd8>
<34 Qxc7+ Rd7>
<35 Qc5+ ...>

White is a queen up and can choose how to avoid <36 ... Rd1+> losing, by either Bb3, Re1 or h3...

Jun-04-13  lost in space: got that one quickly
Jun-04-13  gofer: <sfm>: <1 Bh7+ ...> and the other 7 moves are easy...
Jun-04-13  Nick46: Got the chess problem (making 2 days in a row) but lost for a worthy pun. Moonwalker got one, did'n you?
Jun-04-13  mistreaver: Tuesday.White to play. Easy.32?
32 Rxd6!! Kxd6 (pretty much forced)
33 Qd5+ Ke7
34 Qe6 mate
A nice Gueridon (?) mate.
Jun-04-13  zb2cr: 32. Rxd6+, Kxd6: 33. Qd5+!, Ke7; 34. Qe6#. The final "swallow-tail mate" pattern works because of the Black Q and R at d8 and f8.
Jun-04-13  Abdel Irada: Tell us again, O Master: Why is a king not usually well placed on d7 in an open middlegame? ;-)

Jun-04-13  James D Flynn: White is the exchange up and Black’s K is trapped in the centre threatened by White’s Q,R, and B, Black appears very weak on the White squares. White has several candidates 32.Bb4+, bxa5, Rxd6+.
32 Bb4+(was my first thought) Ke7 33.c4(the d6 pawn is the anchor of the K’s defense the threat of c5 must be answered )Qb8 34.Qc6(if Qd5 Qb6 35.bxa5 Qxa5 and c5 is prevented) Rd8 35.c5(now the d6 pawn is 3 times attacked and but has 4 defenders) axb4 36.cxd6 Rxd6 37.Rxd6 Bxd6 38.Qd7+ Kf8(now White has lost a pawn, his Q is attacked and moving it leaves the B en prise) 39.Rxe5 fxe5 40.Bc4 Qc7 41.Qe6 bxc4 and White can only ope for a perpetual. 32.bxa5 with White’s dominance of the White squares and his exchange plus this will almost certainly win but White has better: 32.Rxd6+(removing the anchor) Ke7(if Kxd6 33.Qd5+ Ke7 34.Qe6#) 33.Rxd8 Rxd8 34.Qxc7+ Rd7 35.Qc5+ Kd8 36.a3 stops the back rank mate and leaves Black hopelessly down in material.

  kevin86: 32 ♖xd6-if the king moves,the queen is lost-if black takes,mate in two epaulette style!
Jun-04-13  abuzic: 32.Rxe5 first threatening Bb5# leads to same result.
Jun-04-13  Conrad93: <32.Rxe5 first threatening Bb5# leads to same result.>

33. Bb5+ isn't mate...

Jun-04-13  sfm: <al wazir: I don't understand black's opening play. It gives up castling rights and the exchange, in return for what?> Oh, it was simply a way to avoid the standard variations, that he suspected his opponent knew better, giving White an edge at an early stage in the game!

  gawain: I enjoy these positions where one side's pieces are so badly placed that they surround their King but are helpless to protect him.

32. Rxd6+ Kxd6 (or else Q is lost)
33. Qd5+ Ke7
34. Qe6#

Jun-04-13  Jack Bauer: Dammit!
Jun-04-13  pericles of athens: Alright! Got it, full point today.

The king has nowhere to go yet has no defenders either. Several black pieces around the king but none of them can do anything.

  rodchuck: A pun suggests itself in German: "Damit ist genug!" (that's enough)
Jun-04-13  dufferps: There's a lot I don't understand in this game. The most notable puzzlement is 17.f4 -- I expected something like 17.f3.
Then, after 17.f4, I expected black to play 17. ... Nxe4. I'm sure there were good reasons that the moves I expected were not played, but I don't understand why.

The final sequence was certainly clear enough. Black might have done a little better on his 31st move, but by that stage he was struggling in a losing situation.

Jun-04-13  Moonwalker: <Nick46>: I gave it a go! Makes more sense with a slight Australian accent!
Jun-05-13  abuzic: <Conrad93: <abuzic: 32.Rxe5 first threatening Bb5# leads to same result.> 33. Bb5+ isn't mate...>

Position after 32.Rxe5:

Now you can see that the e file is open? and that the king has no square? and that Bb5 is a mate threat?

for example:
32...Re8 33.Bb5#
