    OK, so I thought I would try to see where the game would go, but it just turned into a big mess.  I think ultimately both players would agree to a draw, because I got tired of trying to find an advantage for one or the other.  It was one big zugzwang, so I decided to end it with white trying to win, only to end up throwing the game to black.

    Don't shoot the piano player.

    The point of Be1 is that black has a tactic on all other squares so white will not win a piece.  The idea is to simply move the knight, and after white plays BxQ(b7), black plays RxR(c1)+, regaining the material as the white queen on h1 falls next move.

     

    With the bishop on e1, Rxc1 is not check, so white has time to save the queen.  With the weak dark squares around the black king, white has a significant material advantage.

    There's no way left to defend the knight on c6. I'm not sure if the bishop has to go to e1 specifically though.


     It does. Otherwise 1. ...    Nd4    2. Bxb7    Rxc1+    3. Kg2    Rxh1

    I don't think these chess pzzles are very logical.
