y no Bxe6 ?????
Check page 3, clear explanation y it is a draw.
ooops...i mean Bxe3
really, really hard
I hope, that can help a bit
1. Bh3 Bxh3 ( 1... Qxh3 2. Rf2 Be6 3. Rc3 Qh6 ) 2. Rf2 Bxh2 3. Rc3 ( 3. Rxh2 Qe1# ) 3... Bf4 ( 3... Bd6 4. Rxh3 Qxh3+ ) 4. Rxh3 Qxh3+ 5. Kg1 e3 ( 5... Qg3+ 6. Rg2 ( 6. Kf1 Qh3+ 7. Rg2 Qh1+ 8. Rg1 Qh3+ 9. Rg2 ) 6... Qe1# ) 6. Rg2 Qh4 7. Nxe3 Qe1+ 8. Nf1 Ne5 9. Qc8 Be3+ 10. Kh2 Qh4+ 11. Qh3 Bf4+ 12. Rg3 Bxg3+ 13. Nxg3 Ng4+ 14. Kg2 Ne3+ 15. Kh2 Ng4+ 16. Kg2 g5 17. Qxh4+ gxh4 18. Nf1 h3+ ( 18... f5 19. a6 bxa6 20. bxa6 ) 19. Kxh3 Ne5 20. a6 Nd7 21. axb7
I don't understand the reasoning behind 18. Nf1, taking it back to the edge of the board?
Why wouldn't you play 18. Nf5, threatening 19. Nd6 and forking both those pawns?
This was a hard one!
i dont like the ending.I do not play for draws.Happy day,and peace.
Hard and confuse
i would have kept playing
This is the first time I did not figure it out!!!Very Hard!!!!
wow >>>it 's the wonderful puzzel i have ever seen it take from me 5 mintus to solve
please stop claiming first. So JV
You are free to move any other. This is just a schematic study without computers analysis, to show a principal, what happens, if blacks avoids a draw
Yes, but what happens is that if black avoids a draw and allows 18. Nf3 and 19. Nd6, it seems he's turned the drawn position into a lost position, by allowing the cluster of three passed pawns on the queenside, while White's king seems to have the kingside passed pawn under wraps pretty well.
