How did you find it? :)
Chesstempo for the win!!!!
why doesn't 1. Kh1 work?
Qd8 and then depends on white :)
1.Kh1 Qd8 2. Rxg6
2...hxg6 3.Qh8+ Kf7 4.Qg7+ Ke6 5.Qe5+ :)
I kept trying to start with rxg6+ before realizing that I was in check lol.
Yeah, originally, it begins with 0...Qf7-c7+, but it's impossible to show the last move here.
wow, good stuff.
It is possible to show the last move at the bottom of the diagram.
yeah but that gives away the check
just found this webs and i think i like it..thanks chess.com
I love puzzles where you really have to look for the best defense. It's more like playing a real game, and less like looking for the magical trick.
The point of Kg1 here is, the black queen wants to go to d8 and check on d1 from where it can have an active defensive function. Kg1 disallows this by supporting a potential rook on f1.
What a rich position, thanks for sharing!
@Martin: Oh, missed that. But 1.Kg1 isn't possible then? ;)
@apostolis1, sooner or later, white's queen come to the game and force the exchange. Play a little bit with all checks and tell the result! :)
