The above game was played b/n viktor korchnoi(white) and vitaly chekhover(black).Black seems to be winning.But korchnoi made a stunning move tht ultimately won him the game. Can u spot Korchnois knockout move? Btw, how do i put the board straight up here?I mean, white down.Can anybody tip me?-

there is a \'flip the board\' option when you are entering the FEN ... btw what happened to your other forum? ... your post *4 seems to have flipped it ... now, that knockout move ... -

3India  BlueScorpion2011-02-28 18:31:52
But i dont see any flip option? Yes, i spoiled the other forum. I tried to flip the board by entering the FEN other way round. Didnt work did it? Now, for Korchnois move, i shall give u one more day to figure it out. No problem if u cant spot it,Chekover didnt either!-

Assuming for the moment that Kxb2 leads to a forced mate after Rg2+, and that 1 Rxc7+ Qxc7, 2 Qxc7+ Kxc7, 3 Kxb2 is too prosaic to be a knockout blow, what about something involving 1 Rd8+ Kb7? Perhaps follow it with the exchange on c7 where now the queen can be pinned by a rook move to d7. I still do not see 2 rooks for a queen and pawn being a knockout blow, but perhaps I am not seeing far enough.-

1. Rd8+ Kb7 2.Rxc7+ Qxc7 3.Rd7 Qxd7 4 Qxd7+ if Ka6 5. Qd3+ wins rook if 4....Kb1 or a1 5. Qe1+ wins rook. Kochnoi gets queen v rook ending. -

RIVERTAM,u r partly right on the second guess.Korchnoi played Rd8+ . If black king captures on d8, Rf8+ forces the queen to interpose, and after R takes e8+,K takes e8,K takes b2, white remains with the queen for the rook. But instead of taking the rook, black plays Kb7,R takes c7+,Q takes c7, Rd7,white again wins the queen for a rook.korchnoi did eventually win the game. If u have seen this, i must congragulate u!-

8India  BlueScorpion2011-02-28 21:32:10
BTW, extopian, how do manage tht \'into\' sign?I cant find an \'into\' sign in my keyboard!-

9England  cc1422628553ChessHere Moderator2011-02-28 22:14:47
into sign ?-

10United  RiverTam2011-02-28 22:29:50
Duh! The white queen takes on d7 WITH CHECK. Then follows with a rook capture. Thanks extopian and Blue Scorpion. It is always nice to have a real life puzzler like this.-

@extopian, the multiplication sign. I have only + and - sign on my keyboard. @Rivertam, our pleasure, isnt it extopian-
