    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

    would have been cooler if white won after that. But it was pretty cool

    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.

    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 ?      Laughing

    Good puzzle & great thread today - lots of intelligent comments !
