Draw. I saw it in CL4K.
ts way more complicated then that.
Draw. Here are black's best tries.
obvious win for WHITE because... pawn takes knight mate
Maybe I'm just slow, but why doesn't this work?
1. c7 nfd6
2. c8=B (Or Q or whatever) Bd4!
BxB7 isn't Checkmate, and Nxb7 isn't stalemate because the bishop isn't guarding b8 anymore.
Obviously there are a bunch of variations white can play out, but with the huge lead in material it's a clear win for black.
So what am I missing? : D
i think isis white promotes to queen, and after bd4 white plays Qb8 with seemingly unstoppable 'stalemate' threat of Qa7.
Ahhhh, aha. You're right. Nice.
here's a help-me mate----pxn,nfd6 ,pb8=n mate
Did you face psychological difficulties during game when you where 1900-2100?
