y does he offer a draw,if he has mate?
this is the first puzzle I have solved that didn't end with a final Mate. You can chase that King around a while, but still odd
I dont understand, whats the use -> its no check mate, and you will still loose in the end
Very impressive. I can see how this line forces the draw. Black King MUST move back and forth between g7 and g8-or-h8 and soon draw by repeated positions, checked by the f7-f8 Rook (while the f4 Rook prevents escape to h6, because Rf7+ Kf6, Rh4+ Kg5, Pawnf4#).
However, I think there are other lines in which Black cannot force a win. For instance, I haven't found a forced black win after 1. Qf1.
playing white.... up a minor piece and pawn, a draw is not your goal.
No win yet, but can get a material advantage I think
I dont see a check mate
why is puzzles always for white?
I wonder if there was a way white could have done better than a draw. Perhaps with many more moves.
no chakemate! whatever others say, it's not a good puzzle. nothing to learn from it.
White to draw? White to Wins.
