    i think that Bf6 is looking for complications...i would have prefered Rh4 check...Kg6...Bd3...Kg7...Rxh7 check...Kg8...Bf6... and whatever the black pieces play checkmate is coming right after with Rh8

    This is both a tough and great puzzle.

    In response to move #4, (Bf6) why wouldnt the black king take the Rook on g4? The rook is completely defenseless. The pawn on h2 or a discovered check from the e2 Bishop provided by the knight moving would be the only means of countering the capture of the rook. Instead Black just throws away a bishop to take a pawn and get a meaningless check.

    So...a few of the moves here seriously confuse me, especially 4.Bf6 which appears to allow Kxg4 (I see White can fork the queen afterwards, but it's hard to see how White can get a mate).  Can anyone who understands this better then me put together an analysis with other lines detailed?


     4... Kxg4 5. Nh4 mate

    what de heck was this stuff all about? didnt understand a single thing at all! please will some kindly soul explain every single move in extreme detail? here are some points to consider when explaining:

    • why the move was made & what advantages it gave white
    • explain clearly in common, understandable English, not "chess" language
    • type the ideas in neat lines and clear lines
    • THANK-YOU FOR THIS FAVOR!

    P.S-  you don't have to if you dont want to. again, THANK-YOU FOR THIS FAVOR!!!

    This is because you can checkmate him with Nh4.

     Black would have two options to stop you.  Either push the g7-pawn up one square to g6, or push the e6-pawn up one square to e5.  Bottom line . . . your dead in the water.

    Will someone please get Jacob30 a girlfriend?  He has some serious problems.


    Unless you are the same person who said that before it has been said before by someone else. Interesting or something. I have Bipolar Schzoeffective insomnia asthma and restless leg syndrome and a couple of other things. Thanks for your concern. Much appreciated.
