You would be mated unless you gave your K an escape move so 1.g4.Allmost promoted d8,but seen black could mate with Rh1.pretty easy.Thank's Chess.Com,good day chess head's.Title helped!!!
another idea which is very simple. only move g4!.
Dont get it
well, the Queen did not die today.
create escape route...
Good one had a similar experience in one game.secure your king
I was expecting some continuation after making the only reasonable first move.
Perhaps there is none, because black can't find a viable response.
newba in posting #19 shows one sequence that is disastrous for black.
I just can't find anything that will work for black after 1.g4.
hmm was tough for the first time...
habbiton, in posting #31 finds a good response for black - advance the h pawn to h4. Unfortunately, advancing 2 squares after having advanced that pawn is not a legal move. And getting there in 2 moves gives white multiple ways to defuse that attack. I like1.g4 h5, 2.d8=Q hxg4, 3.hxg4 and black is down a queen.or1.g4 h5, 2.d8=Q h4, 3.Qxh4 Rh1+, 4.Kg3 Rxh4, 5.Kxh4. and black is down a rook.
Edit - whoops. 4. ... Rxh4 is impossible --- white's pawn at h3 is in the way. Even worse for black.
that was waaay too simple 4 me
I would definitely promote to queen if there were no "Defending" sign! :)
How I do it...
By your rating I think you would have seen the mate threat,but the title did have some bearing on the game!!
