Aug-17-18  gabriel25: <Chrisowen> sometimes I get I the music and now you are letting little more sense in. That kind of poetry in Cuba based on the beauty of the language was called "gitanjafora" pronounced "heetanhafora".
Aug-17-18  Huddsblue: This is too easy for a Friday. Even a 1600 grader like me who hasn't played for several years got it quickly.
Aug-17-18  AlicesKnight: If it's not a second appearance we have seen something like it not too long ago - 34....Qa3 wins. Even 35.Qxb3 fails; after ....axb3 the essentials remain the same.

  perfidious: Pity Gleizerov could find no succour in the sucker try 35.Re8+.
Aug-17-18  leRevenant: Indeed, caught with his Gleizer off.
Aug-17-18  ajile: Nice trick by Black to get a good Dutch Stonewall by transposition. Usually White wants the Q-knight behind the pawn on c3 not d2. The Nc3 would be more poised to invade on the q-side after White opens lines with cxd5. Also of course a knight on c3 more actively targets d5 as well.
Aug-17-18  lentil: I'm pleased with my ability to recall the solutions after 2 months...
Aug-17-18  Amarande: <CHESSTTCAMPS> and ends in mate in a few more moves:

41 ... b2+ 42 Kxb2 Rb8+! (not Rb7+?! 43 Kxc2 with a tedious endgame victory for Black) 43 Ka1 (the King at bay) Rcb7 (with Rb1+ etc.)

  Richard Taylor: I saw this immediately. I thought I'd seen it before so it shows the benefit of studying tactics. I had seen confirmed as it was on in June. The tricky part was checking out (no pun intd. etc) Re8+

Nice combination and fairly difficult.

Yes, the ideas remain if you see enough similar ones. I thought it was similar to a problem I had seen "somewhere", but I wasn't sure where or when. They <cgs> are still not organized (it seems) but it was a good exercise in any case.

Aug-17-18  stacase: Didn’t see this puzzle in June, was up in the Minnesota north woods with no internet, so this time around it was new.

Yes, 34...Qa3 threatening mate is the killer move.

Aug-17-18  Ratt Boy: The linque for today's GOTD is fatally flawed. The correct linque is likely Van der Wiel vs Yusupov, 1978 , a fun bit of king-kicking by Yusupov.
Aug-17-18  groog: Didn't see this first time round, somehow missed it, not a Friday puzzle. Never mind, simple enough.

  Jimfromprovidence: Here's a puzzle more suitable for a Friday. It's move 29, white to play and win.

The game itself is a real good one, very sharply played.

Shirov vs E Berg, 2010

Aug-17-18  gars: Too easy for a Friday, methinks.
Aug-17-18  ajile: <Patriot: <<morf> Astonishing: all the letters in the alphabet are in each players name> LOL! Good grief, I never even looked at those names! :-|>

Um NO just a quick look and no B, F, J, P, Q or X. Even more remarkable there is no T which is a very common letter.

  PawnSac: < gars: Too easy for a Friday, methinks. >

yes it's a monday puzzle! but hey.. ITS A PUZZLE. At least he's rotating them. he has to learn each aspect of the site one at a time. It will take a while. Look at it this way.. If the difficulty of the puzzle does not follow a prescribed graduation, then it adds a new dynamic to solving them, so.. DON'T WORRY, BE HAPPY, right < chancho > ?!

I don't see a b in either name. Am I missing something?

Aug-17-18  john barleycorn: < GoldenKnight: ...

I don't see a b in either name. Am I missing something?>

you are just missing the fact that <morfishine>'s "alphabet" is not so complete. He missed some lessons in elementary school and is also short of some cookies in the basket.

Aug-17-18  Fish55: This is one that I can solve. 34...Qa3 and mate is unavoidable.
Aug-17-18  Olsonist: As Queen sacs go, that is a beautiful puzzle.
Aug-17-18  sfm: <lentil: I'm pleased with my ability to recall the solutions after 2 months...> LOL!

41 ... b2+ 42 Kxb2 Rb8+!.. 43 Ka1 Rcb7 (with Rb1+ etc.)>
So. 44.Qxc2,Rb1+ 45.RxR
What now? ;-)

Aug-17-18  Tiggler: Qa3 looks a lot like mate in two.
Aug-17-18  Tiggler: Well,ok, mate in 4: 1.Qa3 Re8+ 2. Kxe8 Qe4+ 3.dxe4 Rxc2 4. Qxa2#
Aug-17-18  sfm: Most impressive move:
Should we think "No, that will block the c-file which I could have opened and put pressure. And one more pawn in the way of my bad bishop."?

Krasenkow says:
"I will keep the center closed, and push my dynamic Q-side pawn majority only, using the bishop to guard my center and possibly for K-side defense, e.g. for protecting g6 (after h5-h6,g6) agains sacs. Despite the open g-file his K-side counterplay comes too slowly."

Of course this might be wrong. 23.Qc3 is hard to understand, this loses two moves in the race, the move itself, and one more when the queen is soon hunted away.

Anyway, as it came, the plan with 19.-,c4 was crushing, giving an easy victory against a strong GM.
