Originally posted by greenpawn34Playing Qe7 was the only move I could make, with mate on f7 threatened I had to give up the rook. But I did see that with my queen going to c5 and his own queen offside I had loads of tactics including the queen sac for mate which I saw as a possibility on Qe7. But I also saw that almost all my pieces were falling and my king was going for a walk so I suspected I had missed something. But as it turned out I think white is lost after Qxa8. Pattern recognition just about sums it all up. Seen so many examples in books and blogs(including your own) that it was easy to see the important tactic.
Superb. Wonderful stuff.
When you are sleeping tonight Philidor himself will stand by your bed
and watch over you filling your dreams with pleasant pastures of a
never never land where flowers grow tall and beautiful in an ever shining sun.
(after of course paying a visit to RJ to piss in his slippers....a smotherd mate Pah!)
A perfect example ...[text shortened]... s on.
If he never knew the pattern, they is no way he would have come up with 11...Qe7.
Originally posted by greenpawn34Strange thing is I had overlooked that his Qf3 move would attack both f7 and the rook. When he played that move I was very close to resigning until I saw the Qc5 idea. Even then could not believe that white could not counter sac somewhere when he was so far ahead in material and my king stuck in the centre.

You had d5 and 0-0 but Qe7 is the best try.
The point I was making is there is no way any of us can see a mate like that.
How many moves...9 without knowing the pattern was there.
It is I think the easist pattern to 'see' along with a common back rank mate.

such a deep impression on all who see it.

Enjoy yourself, you appear to have what I call "Sackers Luck".
I have it in spades. I depend upon it. Every game is a lottery.
Some players sac and sac and sac and never seem to get any luck.
