Yeah, Yeah...

I have another brain part to add to the list. It's the one that says, "yeah, yeah, ... I know that". Normally silent, it conveniently asserts itself after I first get a problem wrong, go get a hint, think about it for awhile, and then figure out the correct move. I say don't believe that part or take it seriously! It knows of tactics, and that's about it. It's my inner patzer, and it can't play worth sh*t.

Now to pick on another grandmaster. If you have Sierawan's Winning Chess Tactics, the answer on test 134 is not quite the best line. I was thinking I had it, read the answer and found he started in a different move order which made me think I miscalculated, and later discovered that the computer liked my original move order better. Arg. I'll post my line in the comments.

In circle 2 of problems 204-218

Comments:
1..Rxc3?? 2.Bf4!! threatening Rd8+ is a more potent move order, and after trades leaves White an extra rook rather than an extra Bishop.

The worst continuation would be
2.. Rxc2?? 3.Rd8+ Bf8 4.Bh6 +-, which is practically mate.

Slghtly better ideas are

2.. h5?! 3.Qxc3 Qb1+ 4.Kh2 +-,

2..g5 3.Rd8+ Bf8 4.Qxc3 gxf4 5.Qc8 Qb1+ 6.Kh2 Kg7 7.Rxf8 +-,

2..f6 3.Rd8+ Kf7 4.Qxc3 fxe5 5.Bxe5 Qa1+ 6.Kh2 Bxe5+ 7.Qxe5 +-, and

2.. Qa1+ 3.Kh2 Rxh3+ 4.gxh3 h6 5.Rd8+ Kh7 6.Qb3 Qe1 7.Bg3 e6 8.Qxb7 Qa5 9.Rc8 Qd2 10.Qxf7 h5 11.h4 a5 12.Qg8+ Kh6 13.Rc7 Qxf2+ 14.Bxf2 Bxe5+ 15.Kg2 Bxc7 16.Qh8#.
