Marcel Duchamp's Problem

  • 3 years ago · Quote · #1


    In 1943, M. Duchamp posed a "problem with no solution". From the initial position, the following moves are suggested by Larry Evans (on, the article is written by Francis Naumann).

    But there is one different proposal because of Black's sixth move.
    But there is another possibility for White to continue after Black's ...Rg8:

    By the end of the article, the author writes: "Duchamp has given us, in effect, a problem with no solution."

    Do you agree?
