gnixon: I definitely learned something today. Thanks, CG.

gnixon: I think black was guarding f8. With Kd5 supporting Bc5, black's bishop can no longer protect that square.

gnixon: Bah, I saw the weakness on h7, and the need for Nxe7, but I wanted to do Bh6 instead of the excellent Nf6+, which forces recapture due to the king/queen fork.

gnixon: Such utterly useless black bishops! After 19...cxb4, black is temporarily ahead 1 pawn in material, but its trapped bishops can't help save the doubled queenside pawns. 32. Rxb5 uses a back rank threat to protect White's en prise queen. The last queenside pawn is mopped up for a ...

gnixon: It's nice being forced to win.

gnixon: Just bragging that I saw this instantly; usually doesn't happen even on Tuesday. On the other hand, I disagree with Ahmadov that this is a Monday puzzle. There are a couple of variations to double-check.
 
   Sep-20-07 J Emms vs Tukmakov, 1996 (replies)
 
gnixon: I stared at the final position for awhile before I saw that the white rook could come off the back rank by capturing with check. (Thus I also couldn't see quite how good Nf6+ was.) Must be too early in the morning. BTW, was there any hope for Na5 at the puzzle position, planning a ...

gnixon: Oops, I saw that the black queen couldn't stop d6, dxc7, Rd8# without self-sacrifice, but missed black's straightforward Nd5. Maybe I'll go back to solving these in the morning.

gnixon: Tuesday. Rxg6+, Rxg6+, plus infinite checks on the fleeing king = full solution
 
   Jul-30-07 Capablanca vs B H Villegas, 1914 (replies)
 
gnixon: I agree this is a hair trickier than the usual Monday, but I think it should be solvable for the average Monday puzzler because there's no other conceivable line.
