Easy Breezie. I would like to clarify this problem to everyone. ............
I thought you said you read all the posts from beginning to end.
I think I like solving for Mate better.. Im Not a draw type player
Thanks for the lesson! A draw is worth 1/2 point! Better than no point at all.
I didn't get it right, but I can see the draw.
didnt read the title...was trying to find a way to mate...damn...
LOL... I did. It pays.

bull shit.. what is the final .. who wins?
White should win this position easily.
Good puzzle, relatively difficult
A very difficult puzzle, i´m missed in second move
The solution given is not very convincing. The problem is, after 1.Bh3 white doesn't threaten anything. So 1...Bxh3 (or 1...Qxh3) is not forced for black. For example, why not 1...Bxe2 followed maybe by a check Bf3+ or BxN? Here's a nice continuation:
Ah, now I see why B-h3 was necessary. Qxh2 would have been a mate. Here I was trying to look for something for the white queen to do.
White isn't threatening anything? First off, take a glance at his queenside pawns, that can be turned in a hurry.
And take your own advice buddy.
3. Rxd1 isn't forced at all, and it leads to hanging of the rook.
For that matter, 4. Rxd6 isn't forced either, he would be an idiot to leave the bank rank available for that Queen check on e1. You have to play the best move for both sides, are you kidding me?
White would never hang his rook with 3. Rxd1. Start your continuation instead with 3. Qxf7, threatening the b7 pawn to finish off his passed pawns on the queenside and protecting his hung rook.
