I had no choice, but to put black there... This was the only way I could make sacrifice on move 3. Didd anybody try to solve variants with 1... Kd1 and 1...Kf1 ?
Though I can turn the board around and black will be in normal position! Only pawns would go backwards
I don't get it. Why didn't the Pawn take the rook and pomote itself into a Queen. ¬¬'
It would be a much easier win in my opinion.
I didn't know about that rule. Thank you for telling me.
Making a note that the board is in standard position but the kings have advanced past eachother woulld help. Very nice puzzle though
I think that coordinates on the board show this. That's why they are there!
You've got t be kidding me! I showed this puzzle to one candidate in master (sorry if translated wrong, hope you understand. It's almost NM) and it took him 5 minutes to solve it! Many other people couldn't solve it too! On real board of course, where they can't just try good-looking move to see if it's right! If you call it easy... Then it's either I'm really bad chessplayer or you're really good!
By the way try to solve variants for 1... Kd1 and 1... Kf1. They're easier, but they don't have given answers to check.
And don't forget - it's just my first puzzle! Though I made it in June
It's easy because you have board telling you "right!" or "wrong" Try to solve it without this...
Ok, I'll post them... later, I don't have time now. They are pretty easy, believe me. You just need to think...
