  LIFE Master AJ: The quality of this game is extremely poor, my game vs. Doug Strout was MUCH better than this ... was this a rapid event?
Mar-11-13  MountainMatt: After spending a LONG time (like 30 seconds) looking at a queen sac, I found 28. Rxe6+ fxe6 29. Qd7#. Yay Monday!
Mar-11-13  mistreaver: Monday. WHite to play. Very Easy.28.?
28 Rxe6+ fxe6 (forced)
29 Qd7 mate
Mar-11-13  whiteshark: <28. Rxe6+ fxe6 29. Qd7#>, and that's it.

White to move. See A J Goldsby for the complete score.

  pittpanther: This could make a nice puzzle problem for Black's 27th move. It is black to move and create a position where white can force mate in 2. I think only 27 g6 or g5 by black create the mate in 2 for white.

Mar-11-13  BOSTER: <sleepyirv> <Leaving the King in the center is like leaving the milk out- sooner or later it's going to go to bad>.

Such <chess philosophy> does not work all time. When center is closed, the King in the middle feels very comfortable .

Mar-11-13  Marmot PFL: <LIFE Master AJ> I wouldn't say white played badly. Anyway, they need to get Monday material somewhere. Yours is more like a Wednesday.

Game Collection: PINS AGAINST SQUARES 28 Re1xe6+! Black f7-pawn shields d7-mating sq from W h7-queen

Mar-11-13  Alex56171: Since today is Monday, I started looking for a solution with an acute move. The solution suddenly appeared: 28. Rxe6+ fxe6. 29. Qd7#. Incidentally, 27. ... g6 seems the worst thing that black should have done.
Mar-11-13  Patriot: <LMAJ> On your puzzle, I thought 1.Bxh6 gxh6 2.Qxh6+ Nh7 3.Nf6 wins. But I see now there is a little more to this. Black has the defensive try 3...Qf5; 4.Nxh7 Qxh7 5.Qf6+ Kg8 6.Qxd8+ . Also, I didn't consider 1...Ng6.

Thanks for the additional puzzle!

Mar-11-13  YouRang: So, what was black thinking when he played 25...Nxc2?
Mar-11-13  stst: 28.Rxe6+ fxe6 (forced)
Premium Chessgames Member
  Once: <you rang> I suppose he was thinking that he was winning three pawns for his knight (if the h pawn also falls). Then he wins by pushing his connected passed pawns until white has to give some of the material back.

And maybe he was hoping for the chance to trap the white queen with Qf6 and Rh8. This means that white either rescues his queen or loses the h pawn.

It's clever stuff ... If it wasn't for 28. Rxe6.

  PawnSac: Rxe6 and Qd7++

oh my gosh you guys are right.
mondays are way too easy

Mar-11-13  YouRang: I guess (to answer my own question), that black thought the knight was a goner anyway since it's attacked by Pb2 and can't move to a safe square. e.g. 25...Nc4? 26.Nd5! and 27.Qxg7 threatening Nf6+ is murder.

But the knight isn't *really* a goner.

For one thing, white can't take it immediately: bxa3? Qxc3+ .

Also, black can buy time: 25...b4! counterattacks the Nc3 and creates a safe square on b5, e.g. 26.Nd5 Qxc2! 27.Qe2 Qxe2 28.Rxe2 Nb5 and all is well for black.

Mar-11-13  YouRang: Or maybe <Once> is right. :-)
Mar-11-13  Robed.Bishop: <LMAJ> Does your bitterness have no bounds?
Premium Chessgames Member
  LIFE Master AJ: <Patriot> I am happy anytime anyone enjoys one of my puzzles.

<YouRang> You were gone ... for a long time. Its good to see you back!

Mar-12-13  Abdel Irada: I do believe <LMAJ> is mellowing. Such a development should receive our every encouragement.

There is nothing wrong with offering a supplemental puzzle, particularly when the <POTD> is rather easy for some of us here, so I see no reason to look this gift challenge in the mouth. (After all, I've occasionally been guilty of doing the same.)

Mar-12-13  YouRang: <LMAJ> Thanks, although I haven't really been gone. I'm just not a 'regular' on the POTD as I once was, although I do usually try to solve them still.
Premium Chessgames Member
  LIFE Master AJ: <YouRang> Gotcha.

When I had not seen your name much, I thought maybe you had dropped out, my mistake.
