beside the piece down...white is in a forced mating position----(QXP AT H2).White prevents a LOST by SACs (R&Q)----look at the position w/ white rook and queen off the board and the black queen. Stale mate is oblvious, and now it's a chess motiff to force black too take w. rook and queen.
Actually a good puzzle. Nice use of perpetual check, stalemate, and pin.
Extremely good Saturday puzz. I usually don't enjoy draw puzzles, but this one is outstanding. The forced pin of the pawn was inspired. What a choice! Give up your queen and likely lose, or draw? Drawing with so many pieces in play is a real challenge. I only question how such a great draw play could come from a player who got into such a total, absolute mess in the first place. Thanks for brightening up my Saturday.
wow.... a puzzle where we're trying to force a draw? Crazy!
Not once not twice, but at least 10 times!!!
Anyways, nice and easy puzzle, but I still don't understand the ending
Draw by stalemate.
How was it stalemate? explain helpp
I must admit I did not solve this one!!!
hard, didn't get it at first but it's very cool
I don't get it. White loses?
i cannot understand. if queen takes queen. why the game stopped.
i also found it. good games
nice n eazy
