My friend " ruelasker " recently compared "giving up the exchange" to "a bit early resignation".
This brought to mind this game from my current OTB tournament when post analysis advised against doing just that.
Thanks for posting. It is an interesting game. The link you gave me didn't work for me. I'm glad I finally found the game.
Very good hopefully sometimes two knights are more useful than two bishops.....
Oh I see, but it's still a forced mating net in 5 or more after 39. Ng4+; if ...NxN it's mate next move and if K moves it's 40. NxN with mate to follow.
Thank you Jagdeep for the indepth analysis
No Vudu, what i showed you was more than 4 moves. In your diagram move 38 is the finishing move. But if the Queen takes the N instead with the pawn & later moves Ne5, it becomes longer as it stops the mate trap. Also note that your opponent can afford to lose that Q as he should be able to regain it with the pawn promotion. Its a complex position but you should still prevail in my opinion.
Yes there are variations, all which lead to mate in less than 4
Sorry Vudu but I don't think that's mate in 4 puzzle. Why?37. Nf5+ Qxf538. exf5 Ne5 or 38. Ng8+ followed by exf5
Yes you still win
