White should simply take black's rook donation and black must resign!!!
Well, if white takes black rook at d5, black wouldn't have to resign since the game would be done by then: black king has no free squares to move to, white's lust for rooks cost him a won game, it's a draw!!
Kg3 ??? see black will answer with Rg1+! Look at the first white king's move.
Note to the Editor: This is one of the few REALISTIC and beneficial excercises/puzzles as of late. Really, dumping your Queen 6 or 7 moves prior to a mate! LOL
If it's a forced mate rather than an uncalculated risk or jump into the unknown, then what is unrealistic about sacrificing a queen for a mate?!
I think you meant to say "this was an easy puzzle, not like those harder ones"!!
1...Rg1+ 2. Nxg1 Kxg1 3. Rf5 Kh1 4. Rf1#
And that even finishes it with one less move!!
In timed game any player would choose 1... Rh5+ 2. Kg2 Rh2+ 3. Kf1 Kg3 and win
that was easy! FIrst try
You got white and black notations mixed up there, but this line actually makes sense, because it doesn't seem there's a way out for black after 3. Kg3, although black will make it take longer via 3... Rd2, followed by Nxd2 etc...
Tricky. But then again I suck.
Why wouldn't you just capture the rook after it was ignorant enough to put itself in your rooks path?
citizenoftheworld91 answers your question on page 10, and maybe others as well. After a disasterous RxR by white it is stalemate! White places his rook one file down (4th file) so that black cannot put its rook on the same file, because that square is defended by the white knight.
Ain't more pragmatic 4. Rg1 ?
Illegal because white is in check.
