I did it but you know where's my parade.
Thats like a puzzle.........
nice and interesting....good lesson
good puzzle alot of sacrificing for something greater :-)
excellent entertainment,,,,,,,,,,, i like it
Is it possible to force a check mate on a open board with a bishop and a knight? In this puzzle black could take one bishop and then sacrifice the rook for the queening pawn. I am not sure if white can force a win at that point.
Can't you just go B+N vs K?
Kxe5 is not right
Black drops his rook if he takes the pawn, plus the diagonal barrier is set and the knight free to roam.
Kxe5 is correct. If Kxg6 then Bc2+ and white takes the rook. If the King takes no pieces, then it's impossible to prevent the pawn from queening and black ends up against a queen and two other pieces.
i never would take the Bb3 with the Rb8 ... because it´s difficult to mate with bishop and knight ..
I agree. I would say it is imposible to mate with bishop and knight.
Black should have waited for the pawn and exchange it. Forcing a draw
Pretty straightforward, not many options to choose from
very clever sacrifices..!
A difficult one (at least for me)
Mating with a bishop and knight is a well known endgame. It is possible though not intuitive, it's something you have to learn
it was really a nice plan .it contains planning as well as stratgedy
Guys, Stop spamming nonsense.
Knight and bishops is a certain mate. And you could have known this if took the time to simply google it.
Anyway, Genius puzzle if you ask me.
