nice forced stalemate
nice stalemate, a draw is better than a lost
Nice! Helps one think of Stalemates as a viable option to extract from a weak position. I was stumped initially too.
"how have i solved it? surely white loses..."
No, white surely draws :)
No,white surely loses

how have i solved it? surely white loses...
Jpr, actually white forces a stalemate because after black takes the rook white has no legal moves.
Spam is the use of electronic messaging systems (including most broadcast media, digital delivery systems) to send unsolicited bulk messages indiscriminately.
Wow what a forced draw!
Nice one :D
The solution doesn't make any sense. PB2, KD2 (or e2), black promotes. What am I missing please?
if black x rook on d/e file , the white king is stalemated.....an obvious answer is not to that( protect b. to pomote pawn). here the rook will check for a draw or to create HEAD ACHE.
THE BLACK KING IS A PARTNER FOR WHITE, as the queen is pinned-so if rxq or qxr, stalemate(b. pawn covering c2 is nice......
Oh! really good
v nice one
The worst thing of firstithis is not spamming or nonsense message, the worst is proclaiming FIRST when actually you are 2on, 3rd., or worse. And that's because:
1. You are lying
2. You are badly mistaken
3. You don't know how to count up to two
4. You are completely out of mind and need severe treatment
nice puzzle thx
I agree, White will lose. How is that a good puzzle? OBJECTIVE: Postpone Your loss.
