Weekly Blog 8/28/14

Alright, this blog is pretty short and sweet. I have fallen below 1200 and trying to get back up (don't play 3|0 on your phone). I have 3 games, a puzzle, and a diagram puzzle. The person who gets the diagram puzzle right, will receive a trophy :) Here you go. Enjoy!

Hope you all enjoy! Feel free to comment. Analysis of games is greatly appreciated!

    I like how white has 3 bishops... 

    This is my best guess. I'm not sure if I made the BEST moves for black so there may be a faster mate but this is a decent attack either way I think.

    1.Bd4 Qxd4 2.Nxd4 c5 3.Ndb5 Bd7 4.Nd6 Be6 5.Rfe1 c4 6.Bxc4 Bxc4 7.Nxc4 Rac8 8.Nd6 *

    Can't go over the games but I can answer your diagram puzzle. There is no way to win in 7 moves UNLESS Black blunders example being the following played:

     

    1.Qxc7 Bf5 2.Nd5 Qe6 3.Bxf5 Qxd5 4.Bd7 Nb4 5.Rfd1 Qe4 6.Qc5 Na6 7.Qc3 Qe7 8.Bf5 Rfd8 9.Rxd8+ Qxd8 10.Bd4 Qf8 11.Qc4 Qd6 12.Re1 Qc6 13.Qxc6 bxc6 14.Be4 Rc8 15.Bxa7 g6 16.a3 Nc7 17.Ne5 Kg7 18.Nxc6 Nb5 19.Bc5 h5 20.c4 Nc7 21.Ne7 Re8 22.Bc6 Rh8 23.Bd4+ f6 24.b4 Rf8 25.b5 Kh6 26.b6 Na6 27.Bb5 Nb4 28.axb4 h4 29.Bxf6 g5 30.c5 Kh7 31.Bxg5 h3 32.c6 hxg2 33.c7 Kg7 34.b7 Rxf2 35.b8=Q Rf1+ 36.Bxf1 gxf1=Q+ 37.Rxf1 Kh7 38.Rf7# 1-0

    ya, 3I0 on your phone would be really hard. I don't play it, but I play 5 0, and 1 0 on a laptop, and I got used to the mouse, and now a regular mouse is slow for me!
