This is why I am not a GM
good one indeed.
Easy but with many steps!
I liked that one. A little further on than I was expecting.
to play like that over the board is brilliant
Does anybody know where I can get pgn for the full game that this puzzle is taken from?
Here it is:-
[Event "Israeli Championship"]
[Site "Tel Aviv"]
[White "Emil Sutovsky"]
[Black "Ilya Smirin"]
1. e4 c5 2. Nc3 Nc6 3. Nf3 e5 4. Bc4 d6 5. d3 Be7 6. O-O Nf6
7. Ng5 O-O 8. f4 exf4 9. Bxf4 h6 10. Nf3 Be6 11. Nd5 Bxd5
12. exd5 Na5 13. Nh4 b5 14. Nf5 bxc4 15. Bxh6 gxh6 16. Nxh6+
Kh7 17. Nf5 cxd3 18. Qxd3 Kh8 19. Rae1 Qb6 20. Qh3+ Nh7
21. Rxe7 c4+ 22. Kh1 Qxb2 23. Re4 Rg8 24. Qxh7+ 1-0
It ends where it does because Black must have resigned at move 24 !
Why not 5. Rf4#?
Got it on the first try. It sort of dictates itself when look for the best move. Very nice.
long but easy puzzle
Very nice indeed.
After getting the first two moves wrong I found the chase.
