I thought this was a neat puzzle and thought I should share it. At first glance, one can't help but to favor black.
2nd, Nice Puzzle.
Sorry, I should have credited it. It's from Laszlo Polgar's Chess: 5334 Problems, Combinations, and Games. I don't know who the original author is since the book is compiled from several sources, some stretching back as far as 150+ years. Some of the puzzles he gives authors, but some of them he doesn't. Original, maybe? That'd be about 4K original puzzles, which seems a bit much.
i have that book its a good one
One I solved quickly, for once.
