I will psot some of best and hardest puzzles, not: some of puzzles may not be so forced.
Soon I`llbe posting soon :) ENJOY!
Here is another one :)
Hope you like it :)
I guess puzzle #2 would have been faster if the pawn would have been moved immediately
Actually no, playing pawn immediately loses to white, that is the only way to win ;)
Black wins here, you must play f6 first or you lose
Waw! These are great chess lessons.
Is the Game#1 played by Paul Morphy?
Who is the white player for the Game#2?
He/she deserves a garland of roses and a big chocolate.
The move 'f6' is marvellous and mandatory.
Thank you very much, I`ll keep posting :)
Actually the first game was played by my big brother, not by Morphy and it is a gerat compliment to him :), but he was inspired by Morhpy months ago, and he loved KG so from hundreads of games one had to be this beautiful.
I am sorry but I don`t know players of the second game, and I think it wasn`t from a game it is invented position.
Here is another one, so beautiful endgame puzzle :)
Good work again. After Kh1 protecting g2 square, e5 opens up 'g' file for pawn push for queen acendance.
What about black king choosing Kf3 rather than Kf1?
The first move by white 1.Kh1!! is amazing, and yes it is the only way to win.
The first move by black 1... Kf1 is not the best and therefore doesn't deserve an exclamation mark.
1... Kf1 loses in 17 moves.
In that variation, which is the one given in the puzzle, the move 6... e1=Q is incorrect as it loses right away. But it is a nice check mate picture that follows (7.Qg2#) and one you could choose to let white perform in a real game since white wins anyway, so why not give white the opportunity to perform this mate instead of resigning after white's 6th move? Anyway, the best 6th move by black in that variation is 6... Kf2 (see the link below).
1... Kf3 also loses in 17 moves.
1... Kg3 also loses in 17 moves.
1... Ke3 loses in 18 moves,
and is therefore the best black answer and thus the correct move.
Those moves can be checked out here, which is what I did:
Thank you, here is how white wins with Kf3, enjoy
I hope you liked it :), fell free to ask.
Thanks. White wins because of continuous checks.
But white must be extra-cautious and not so easy.
Hi again, here are new puzzles! Enjoy! :)
Two nights power! :)
This is a more practical puzzle, but still difficult. White to play and draw.
not very practical, its very unusual to have the king in the corner that late in the game.
White to move and draw. Can you ? I think it is very fantastic draw game!
