Nah this is dumb. If Black had played 2... Bxd3 white's strategy would have gone to pieces. They will the hanging rook piece which is the biggest threat to a mate and pin down the knight, giving them sufficient time to promote a pawn
Except that White checkmates next move with Nf3.
My first move was Rc3. Why is this not acceptable?
Why can't the bishop take the rook (1...Bxd3)? Isn't that a draw?
trichy and needs good plan
I guess that would work too. In the game, black should manage both Ng6+ and Nf3+, after Rc3 the only mate is Nf3+, which should lead to the same line of play as in the game.
Except 1.Rh3+, 1.Nd3, 1.Rf2, all the other good moves might result in a win for white..have i missed something ?
Why can't you move the knight to g6 and checkmate?
g6 is covered by Black's bishop.
bxn....that's the point of rd4(block the b, bishop)
