This is as position from a game that i played recently in a tournament for players rated under 1500. I had the black pieces Have fun solving it
Hah thats a good one! Happy new year btw
I think you can simply do the rook move first, because the queen defending f3 is moot on the revealed check.
No, because the knight is checking the king so we have to eliminate him first.
Good job! If I were white I would have resigned after 1... Qxd5
Come to think of it, his only move was 2. Kh1.
That is right by 2.Kh1 he escapes the checkmate. But his position is still lost. After 2...Qe5 I am threatening to take the b-pawn and the Rook on f1.
If white plays 3.Rg1 I am winning a pawn and the exchange by 3...Bxf2 because the rook has no save square to go without to be captured by an Black peace. Black has material advantage of 1 Bishop an 1 pawn and a better position
If white plays 3.Re1 I am winning 2 pawns and have a good position by 3...Rg8 threatening to win the queen by an discovered attack through check.4.Rg1 Rxg1. White takes with the queen or he get checkmate(5.Kxg1 5.Qg5+ 6.Kh1 6.Qg2#)
After 5.Qxg1 Qxb2 the white queen is overloaded he has to cover the attacked A-Rook and the 2-times attacked f-pawn so that by ...6 Bxf2 wins the second pawn and has 2 Bishops and 2 pawns for a Rook and much better position. If the rook moves the a-pawn falls.The 2 Bishops are strong and the queenside pawns can easily march.
So I think it was right from my opponent to resign after 1...Qxd5 2.Qxd5 Tg8+
Didn't mean to challenge you:) Just wanted to point Kh1 out incase nobody else saw it.
