Dean Brown vs Paul Anderson

  1. I’m surprised that Mr. Brown missed mate on move 40 (rook to D8) and that you didn’t comment on it. Or am I missing something (not too unusual)?

    • Hey David – good catch :) Yeah there are actually two different mates in one that he missed there… 40 . Rd8# as you mentioned, and 40. Nf8#

      Many of the games in the newsletter have more than one tactic in them (either missed or found by the players), so I normally only focus on one of the positions to keep it simple.

      I think Dean might have been in a little time trouble at that point as well.

      But that mate is a good pattern to know – it is a variation on a “Hook Mate”.

      Cheers,
      Tim
