Read more!  Now (after: 1.(18.)Rd5!) 1...(18...)Bxd5 2.(19.)Bxd5 r3kr2/pp2bpp1/7p/q2Bp3/4p1PP/1Q2B3/PPP2P2/2K3R1 b
2...(19...)Rd8 3.(20.)Bc4 etc further, you can view in the original game. 3rkr2/pp2bpp1/7p/q3p3/2B1p1PP/1Q2B3/PPP2P2/2K3R1 b
 Note:  No good: 3.(20.)Bxb7?! Bc5! 3rkr2/pB3pp1/7p/q1b1p3/4p1PP/1Q2B3/PPP2P2/2K3R1 w
And the blacks will exchange the officers and ensure safe the black boxes for their king.  Note:  2...(19...)Rd8 is a natural move, but the best move is: 2...(19...)Qb4 (This is Anatoly Karpov\'s comment!) r3kr2/pp2bpp1/7p/3Bp3/1q2p1PP/1Q2B3/PPP2P2/2K3R1 w
Etc further, you can view in the original game (in the answer to task(2)!).  The task (2):  1.(35.)Re7!!  immediately win the game! 2k2r2/2q1Rp2/p2r2pp/8/B5PP/2P2Q2/PP3P2/2K5 b
Please enjoy the entire original game!  http://www.chesshere.com/pgnviewer/t.gif

Read more!  My notes:   16.Qb3!!  It is very strong move  here this will be a strong attack on the black king! r3k2r/pp2bpp1/2b4p/q2pp3/4N1PP/1Q2B3/PPP2P2/2KR1BR1 b
 if: 35...Qxe7 2k2r2/4qp2/p2r2pp/8/B5PP/2P2Q2/PP3P2/2K5 w
Find (For easier way!) in this game (from the beginning)! http://www.chesshere.com/pgnviewer/t.gif  if: 36...Rd8+ 2kr4/2q1Rp2/p5pp/8/B5PP/2P2Q2/PP3P2/3K4 w
And now no good: 37.Kc1?  Because black\'s rook takes a control to field (d4). (And this was Anatoly Karpov\'s comment!) 2kr4/2q1Rp2/p5pp/8/B5PP/2P2Q2/PP3P2/2K5 b
But here must: 37.Rd7! 2kr4/2qR1p2/p5pp/8/B5PP/2P2Q2/PP3P2/3K4 b
And with 2 more pawns the white will win easily!(And this was Anatoly Karpov\'s comment!)  More after: 39.Qb6+! (This is in the original game.) and the blasks resing immediately!  This game received the award for best game of the entire tournament.  Good luck! Until next Wednesday! Georgi

These are the answers to the diagrams:  And the three diagrams  (and the diagram (1) (after: (14...Nc5) and), and the diagram (2)(after: 20.Qf1) , and the diagram (3)(after: 30.e7) are from same game. This is the game: Magnus Carlsen (0:1) Fabiano Caruana Sinquefield Cup (2014) Diagram (1):  1.(15.)Bxf7+! r1b1k2r/ppb1qBp1/2p4p/2n1p3/4P3/2P2NPP/PP1N2P1/R2Q1RK1 b
This is a move in today\'s world chess champion! Yes  а risky move , but this is the right move! Even  a compulsory move! Otherwise (after the normal move: 1.(15.)Nh4), the blacks will move: 1...(15...)Nxb3! r1b1k2r/ppb1qpp1/2p4p/4p3/4P2N/1nP3PP/PP1N2P1/R2Q1RK1 w
and then they will make a big (or small) castle and they will have a better positionally. What happens next  you will see from the very original game (below)! In this game you will lead to the diagram (2) (after: 20.Qf1). Diagram (2):  1...(20...)Nd3!! r4R1N/ppb3pk/2p4p/6q1/4P1b1/2Pn2PP/PP1N2P1/R4QK1 w
This is the move of a great master! At least it will be, but can also: 1...(20...)Rxf8 or: 1...(20...)Be2. Now , after: 1...(20...)Nd3!!)  if: 2.(21.)hxg4 Qe3+! and etc. r4R1N/ppb3pk/2p4p/8/4P1P1/2Pnq1P1/PP1N2P1/R4QK1 w

 The whites have expected only: 1...(30...)Rh5+?! and after: 2.(31.)Nh2  the white hold the protection. 1Q6/pp2P1pk/1bp4p/7r/6q1/2P5/PP4PN/R6K b

26 kai2011  20140917 16:48:48  
Well done, windmill! But what about 1.Rb8? I think this will work maybe bit slower than Your solution Work...  
27 kai2011  20140917 18:22:29  
Yeah! Is there any choice?  
28 kai2011  20140917 18:34:31  
I wrote it would be BIT SLOWER Is it  
29 kai2011  20140917 18:44:19  
I have not enough words to say You:\"Much thanks, master!\"  
30 kai2011  20140917 19:30:06  
I want You, windmill, comment Your words:\" I will allow you...\" Do u think u r in right to allow me anything?!?!It seems u think too much about urself.  
31 kalimera  20140923 13:36:57  
The answer to the task:  Congratulations to you: windmill and kai2011! I see that both of you have decided correctly that task. I understand also that kai2011 has found a second solution of this task by: 1.Rb8 but after 1 ...Rd8! the game has extended unnecessarily long and we will \'\' just go down the highway \'\': 1.Rc8+!! = (1:0) 2R5/2k4P/p7/5Np1/8/8/1p1r2P1/6K1 b
This task (endgame) is from the game (after: 52...b2): Vladimir Kramnik (1:0) Veselin Topalov World Chess Championship Candidates (2014) http://www.chesshere.com/pgnviewer/t.gif The game does not need comments and you can to see again the analysis of our friend windmill (above).

32 kai2011  20140923 13:41:16  
Georgi! I wrote that my way is rather slower  
33 kalimera  20140924 06:54:32  
Yes my friend! It is right!  
34 kalimera  20140924 07:06:07  
I guess that would be of interest to you and those two options (I only mention them): 53...Kb8 (after: 53.Rc8+) 54.Rb8+! etc (1:0) 1R6/1k5P/p7/5Np1/8/8/1p1r2P1/6K1 b
and 53...Kd7 (after: 53.Rc8+) 54.Rb8! etc (1:0) 1R6/3k3P/p7/5Np1/8/8/1p1r2P1/6K1 b
And the white pawn will out in a queen but the black pawn has stopped to do like that! Good luck!

This is the answer to the diagram:  This diagram is from the game (after: 42...Rd1): Levon Aronian (1:0) Viswanathan Anand Bilbao Masters (2014) The answer is: 1.(43.)e4!! etc  the whites won. 1Q3R2/1p4pk/p1q1p3/7p/4P2P/6P1/1P3P1K/3r4 b
Please enjoy the whole game that needs no more comment! http://www.chesshere.com/pgnviewer/t.gif After: 46.e5!! the blacks resign  they are completely helpless! Here is the standings:  Bilbao Masters Tournament  Viswanathan Anand 11 (+3 1 =2) Levon Aronian 10 (+2 0 =4) Francisco VallejoPons 5 (+1 3 =2) Ruslan Ponomariov 5 (+1 3 =2) The most interesting in this tournament is that it gives 3 points for a win and 1 point for a draw (as in the football/soccer), so even that Anand has defeated from Aronian (in this game)  it is notable champion (in this tournament) is Anand. It is not difficult to calculate that a \'\' normal \'\' scoring in the tournament leader had to be Aronian!  Good luck!
