I had to go through almost every possible move before I got move 7.. once I got it, it seemed kind of a genius move.
I don’t understand why the black king (on a3) doesn’t take the white bishop on b3 instead of black moving its pawn to e4?
Kxb3 is stalemate. The white King can't move and the game is a draw.
second page, thats my best so far
why on move 4, white bishop is not taken
Yeah, 7th was a little tricky and took some time. Proud that I nailed this puzzle.
a good informative puzzle...
Had hard time with many move's,wondered why on move 4 why not KxBb3,but realalized that would make it a stalemate,you really needed to be good to solve puzzle with no mistake's.Thank's Chess.Com,good day chess head's,two day's in a row I've had no idea on solving puzzle,maybe tomorrow!!!
On black move #4, why not advance the E pawn?
why didn't the King kill the bishop?
Because white would get a stalemate. But why move the black king away from the B pawn and not advance the E pawn on the next move?
good one and second page
bcz der would be a stalemate black would rather push d pawn
