it was hard for me! :(
I needed a tiny boost, but otheerwize it was fine
Can someone please explain why black's first move here is with the rook and not with the bishop? He could easily kill the white queen..
I'm confused too.
went over my head
This is difficult!
Technically, you are second. If you look to the side of your post you'll see '#2"
Black has to be careful as to respond to wite's force moves
cpildn't solve it. vERY TOUGH
Lol... everyone's saying it's hard.... it's the first one I do without mistake, find the joke.
I don't get what does that give you. It's trading Q and N for Q and B. So what?
The answer is in the title. White is meeting black's threats to win material and to gain an advantage by trading down material and remaining up two pawns while maintaining a winning position.
