Dec-16-13  zb2cr: simple. Lure the King over to d8 with 18. Rd8+, Kxd8; 19. Qd7#.

  scutigera: I do love suction sacs.
Dec-16-13  Cheapo by the Dozen: Black should have just snatched the e pawn on Move 10, then retreated the queen to the kingside once she was chased. Then none of this would have happened, and the h2-b8 diagonal doesn't cause enough trouble for Black to make up for 2 pawns.
Dec-16-13  Nick46: <Cheapo by the Dozen: Black should have...> Sounds sound to me.
Dec-16-13  morfishine: Horrid position for Black: 18.Rd8+ Kxd8 19.Qd7#

*1.e4 c5 is a Sicilian no matter what it transposes into


Dec-16-13  ossipossi: <Cheapo by the dozen> & <Nick46>: yes, what's the trick for the two pawns?
Dec-16-13  Nullifidian: 18. ♖d8+ ♔xd8 19. ♕d7#

White lures the Black king out and mates over the d-file <18.Rd8+ Kxd8 19.Qd7# 1-0>. Not really much to it; Black's two final moves are pretty abysmal, to be honest.

Dec-16-13  whiteshark: <18. Rd8+>, and that's it. But it took me a while, though.
Dec-16-13  gars: Good morning, <lost in space>. Would you please be so kind to tell us what the hell is "hinlenkungsopfer"? Thanks a lot!
Dec-16-13  WoodPushkin: Greetings

This actually took a couple few minutes to see. Looking too deep into simplicity. Bring the king back with/ simple rook sac.

KISS (keep it simple stupid)


Dec-16-13  jdc2: <gars: Good morning, <lost in space>. Would you please be so kind to tell us what the hell is "hinlenkungsopfer"? Thanks a lot>

Probably pretty much the same as an eeznablootye.

Dec-16-13  chesssalamander: Ok, not looking, here's my solution:

18. Rd8+ Kxd8 19. Qd7#

Dec-16-13  jrpg: Black's position is poor but is there an easy win after 17 ...♗e7?
Dec-16-13  Transformer: <gars: Good morning, <lost in space>. Would you please be so kind to tell us what the hell is "hinlenkungsopfer"? Thanks a lot!>

AFAIK, "steering sacrifice".

Dec-16-13  TheaN: <ossipossi: <Cheapo by the dozen> & <Nick46>: yes, what's the trick for the two pawns?>

Check up the French Advance Milner-Barry Gambit. This is exactly this after move 10 by White. 10....a6 is actually the key move to prevent 11.Nb5, but Black goes quickly haywire after that.

Dec-16-13  LoveThatJoker: <18. Rd8+ Kxd8 19. Qd7#>

  agb2002: White has two pawns for a bishop.

Black threatens 18... Rxb6.

If 18.Qd7+ Kf7 and the black king escapes. Therefore, 18.Rd8+ Kxd8 19.Qd7#.

  gawain: White makes the Black King an offer he can't refuse.

This one jumped right out at me (as it's supposed to on a Monday) but it's still a nice little puzzle.

Dec-16-13  kevin86: White needs to center the black king at d8-so that a queen mate will follow.Thus,Rd8+!!
Dec-16-13  MountainMatt: Oh yeah, 18. Rd8+ will do.

  Penguincw: Took me a while, but I got it.

  Domdaniel: Blindingly obvious. Though I've lost similar games as Black to the Milner-Barry gambit.
May-04-14  Everett: <Dec-16-13 scutigera: I do love suction sacs.>

Never thought I would read a kibitz here on tea-bagging.
