Bobbyt65 - Stewie rules
Stumbled upon this by chance.
I was trolling though games on auto play spotting shots.
When you get a ‘hit’ you stop auto play and look.
Was about to chalk this up as a missed mate by Black
but plodded on as I noticed it ended 1-0.
First Black’s missed mate. Black to play
He played 25….R2c4.
The mate is fairly straight forward. Check all Checks.
25...R8c3+ 26.Kxd4 Rd2+ 27.Ke4 Re3 mate.
(note the pattern, you do not even need that Rook on d2)
Black missed a clear win of a piece a move or two later with a Knight fork.
26...Rxc1 27.Bxc1 works. (he missed it).
Black most likely only saw his back rank weakness
and that 27…Rxc1 28.Ra1 mates
But 27…Nxb4+ should have been spotted.
“Enough.” screamed Caissa. “For you I have planned something very special.”
And she did. A mate only a very few chess players ever achieve.
Amazing how a silly little game like this can brighten up my day.
I feel honored to have been given the chance to pull it from obscurity.
Ignore the fact White mates with a lone Bishop v two mighty Rooks,
look how he does it.
