after 4. Nxd4 doesn't black just moves the pawn and make a queen on f1 which results in you losing the game?
No, because bishop is defending that square, and you can move the king to protect
bb5+ WORKS AS WELL?
Wow, nice fork!
would have been cooler if white won after that. But it was pretty cool
I Find the way in Third Attempt
White had to play for a draw. Although superior in material, his position was too awkward to achive a win. Blacks advanced pawns left white no other choice.
Good puzzle!!! I am unable to get the puzzle solved. By simply moving all possible moves I solved :P :P. Thanks to the comments that clarifed by doubts :)
THIS WAS NICE
Bb5 is always winning a queen even as first move... or am I mistaking?
nice delay on the queen fork.
AFTER NXQ THIS IS A TOUGH NUT TO WIN FOR WHITE...
Didn't find this easy but then Saturday's puzzle is often the hardest of the week.
I also tried 1.Bb5 first & it's not immediately obvious why that doesn't work until you see that Black's king can shuffle between d1 & e2. At least I found the correct move on my third attempt !
Nobody else has offered a continuation from the final position here which suggests that it's obvious to the better players (but not to me). I don't immediately see why this is winning for White - after all, the White king is restricted from moving to g1/g2 to support it's bishop's attack on f1, so isn't it worth looking at what happens next (?) ....
Anybody up to showing how this goes from here on ?
Good puzzle & great thread today - lots of intelligent comments !
