  PS: for those curious about yesterday's mate-in-10 problem, I posted the solution here:

http://jornalheiros.blogspot.com/2013/05/xadrez-mate-em-10-magnus-carlsen.html

1 Qh5+ Rg5  2 Qxg5#

Too easy.

I know, today it was an easy one. 

We needed an easy one after that tough mate in ten.  By the way, PCF, what really happened in the Carlsen game after that key move Qc7?

And, are we getting the puzzles for today, viz. May 17th?

White Knight: "How YOU Doin'?"

Black King: "Just fine...how YOU Doin', horsie boy?"

White Knight: "Doin' GREAT! why doncha come on over here to the Queenside."

Black King: "Marvelous Idea!!"

White Queen: "Keep on goin."

Black King: "Umm. If you say so lady."

White Bishop: "Oh, and, How YOU Doin' again, my Lord?"

Black King: "All right now what's this all about?

White Pawn: "You just got mated, sir."
