    Just repeat the puzzle title, that way people will think I said something insightful.

    Cool   Have you been talking to your inner Soul again or, just sampling the Highland malt ?

  • #69

    cool

  • #70

    I like it, but it is clearly a won endgame.  :)

  • #71

    EASY

  • #72

    At least not a mate in 2 as usual, but too easy.

  • #73

    Rather Easy, Fellows.

  • #74

    really liked this one

  • #75

    In posting #50, abo_tamem_2012 shows us a variation on a game: Alexander Moskalenko vs. Dmitry Andreikin

    In the game white resigned after 4. Qh3?  Re5!.
    In the variation shown by abo_tamem_2012, White plays a stronger 4. Qf4. 
    Then he follows with 4. ...  Qxh3.  Hmmm.  Pretty neat.
    One continuation:
    5. Rxh3   Rg1+
    6. Kf2      Rf1#
    Another:
    5. Kf2      Qxh1  and black is up a rook, but I don't see any quick checkmate.  It is interesting that because black also has a positional advantage, white will probably trade knights

    Highland Malt is hard to find where I live. Here in Florida, the best substitute I have found is fermented orange juice. Just the other day, after taking a draught, I entered an altered state of consciousness and I was able to channel the ghost of Bobby Fischer.

    At first he said I was a pretty good chess player but then he started ranting about the American income tax system and then he said something about Spasky being a no-good cheater. Then he started going all conspiracy theory on me. He said he has proof that Kasparov is the offspring of a union between Bigfoot and a grizzly bear (I didn't quite understand that one).

    Even stone cold dead, that guy is still crazy. I guess I should take that bit about being a good chess player with a grain of salt.
