    Smile Unexpected queen offer...

    Another case of tactical bamboozlement, Casey style... playing Black on chess.com

    1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 d6 3.Bc4 c6 4.Bb3 Be7 5.d4 Nd7 6.0-0 Ngf6 7.Re1 a6 8.c3 0-0 9.h3 b5 10.Nbd2 c5 11.Nf1 Bb7 12.Ng3 c4 13.Bc2 Re8 14.Nf5 Bf8 15.g4 d5 16.dxe5 Nxe4 17.Bf4 Bc5 18.N4d4 Nf8 19.Kg2 Ng6 20.Bh2 f6 21.exf6 Qxf6 22.Re3 Rf8 23.Qe2 Rae8 24.Rf1 Bd6 25.Nf5 Bf4! 26.N3d4 Bxe3 27.fxe3 Nh4+ 28.Nxh4 Qxh4 29.Bxe4 Rxe4 30. Nf5 [Attacking the queen, but allowing me to uncork...] ...d4!! 0-1. If the knight takes the queen, 31...Rxg4 is double check and mate. There is no decent reply. If 31. Kg1, Qxh3 with threats, and on 32.Rf3 I had planned ...Rxf5 33.gxf5 Rxe3 winning.

    Cheers, Kevin Casey

    “The history of the 20th century is full of examples of countries that set out to redistribute wealth and ended up redistributing poverty.”
    “There’s no point blaming the tragedies of socialism on the flaws or corruption of particular leaders. Any system which allows some people to exercise unbridled power over others is an open invitation to abuse, whether that system is called slavery or socialism or something else.”—Thomas Sowell

    Pity Black missed 23...Ke7 threatening queen and knight, when White can offer the queen again (and this time it's forced) 24.Qxf7.
    So what's your excuse? To run like the devil's chasing you.

    See you in another life, brotha.
