sooooooooooooooooooo long j
more of the puzzles should be like this...
Black should have taken the pawn and then castled... this is the Steinitz Defence!
It was Tarrasch who originally found this variation
Great puzzle, lot of calculation invovled, definetly needing a deep insight into the middle game.
nice puzzle..by the way knew it beforehand
Why did the solution end when it did...with no checkmate shown? Is it so obvious they didn't show it? Help please!
Wouldn't this pull a win instead of a draw?
Edit: Nevermind, Queen to h8 or h7 is checkmate.
what happens if black takes with the knight on move 4 instead of move 5?
This puzzle is a well known trap out of the Ruy Lopez Opening (I don't remember which variation...), where black plays 0-0 which is a mistake, losing a pawn. I believe all these moves are forced.
11. C4 was devastating! Eleven (11) deep! Thanks for the lesson!
nic one....good puzzle
