   Simplification has kibitzed 29 times to chessgames   [more...]
   Mar-13-13 W Schmidt vs R Henley, 1983 (replies)
Simplification: <duffersps> After 26 Bxf2 black has a forced mate with Qxf2+ 27 Kh1 (Kh3 28 Bc8#) Qxf3+ 28 Kg1 Rg8+ 29 Ng3 Rxg3+ 30 hxg3 Qxg3+ 31 Kh1 (Kf1 32 Qf2#) Nf2#
   Jul-28-09 Gulko vs J Horvath, 1985 (replies)
Simplification: Got it - even though I initially read it as white to play and looked for black responses after Qh8 - the obvious one being Qxg3 mating!
   Jun-25-07 R Slade vs D V Hooper, 1947 (replies)
Simplification: <vibes43: What would have been the best white move at 29? Would 29. Rg3 have saved him?> No, that would have been the best move for black! 29... Nf2#
   Mar-30-07 D Vasiesiu vs G Szabo, 2001 (replies)
Simplification: CG missed the pun? Da Vas iesi! - u? Surely it's gone a be a tough one tomorrow?
   Mar-10-07 Alekhine vs W Schenker, 1932 (replies)
Simplification: The position after 20 ... Rf7 could be a Wednesday puzzle.
   Feb-23-07 A Volokitin vs Rublevsky, 2004 (replies)
Simplification: <moppa 17 ...Qd8> 18 exf7 Rxf7 19 Ne6 doesn't seem to work after ... Qc8. However, your suggested 18 Bh6, though, seems like the best line. I was thinking 18 ...Bf6, defending g7, but White continues with 19 Bxg7 anyway ... Bxg7 20 Bxh7! Kxf7 21 Qf5+ winning - because ...
   Feb-22-07 K Havasi vs A Sacconi, 1933 (replies)
Simplification: This week is still getting easier and easier! I couldn't see any other possible move than Bf6, and the mate variations revealed themselves instantly. The rest of the week has got to get much more difficult. I'm still waiting for more 'dummy' puzzles. These should be more ...
   Feb-20-07 Greco vs NN, 1620 (replies)
Simplification: Top marks for those who also saw: 20 Bxf7+ Kf8 21 Qh8# or 20 gf+ Kf8 21 Qh8# or 20 gf+ Kf8 21 fe=Q(or R)+ Qxe8 22Qh8# or 20 gf+ Kf8 21 fe=B followed by Qh8# or Qf7#
   Jan-31-07 G Daskalov vs N Padevsky, 1970 (replies)
Simplification: <eblunt: It's not actually an immediate mate though, since after 32 ... Nf3+ 33 Kh1 Ng5 34 Rxg5 Qc7 for example Black staves off mate by losing a piece> Well, actually, it is ... 35 Qxh7. <eblunt 32 ... Nf3+ 34 Rxf3 ...trap... gxf6> Of course if black gets too ...
   Jan-23-07 S Nedeljkovic vs M Udovcic, 1951 (replies)
Simplification: Took me some time to work out which way the pawns were going ... but then so very easy to find the mate.
