Can someone explain why you wouldn't have 7. Qxa1?
It would make a stalemate
why not Qh2 after the promotion, i dont see a mating line but i didnt see this one either
awesome puzzle every move black was making was to go for a stalemate and every move white waas making was to avoid it and win the game,really nice
Nice puzzle, I'm impressed by the queen endgame that I had not understood till I read some comments. Kind of thing I should practice.
I dont understand why white even waited to take the black queen, as well as why the king didnt take the other pawn???
One nice point no one yet mentioned is that h8=B (to avoid the stalemate) also doesn't work because a1=Q BxQ and black has a drawn position despite white's extra bishop.
mind stretching; thanks.
this is the answer who have a question why black's king didnt take b6 pawn..
and this is the answer who have a question why not bxa6..
thanks; good illustrations.
if white plays c1, then rxbp..if qxp,then rook b8,,, instead white plays rc6...if pawn qxp,rxq, rxr..if rxr,then qa8 check and qxr and then p.u. the pawn
Having seen it before didn't help at all, really tricky and pretty.
thumbs down to this puzzle alot of moves that was not needed
as to those who wonder why did black not take on b6, well if black takes on b6 he has no stale mate hopes anymore and white's pawn simply wins the race.
i think this one has already been up
