Black to play and win.
Why not 2.Kf2? I guess black is Luzhin either way (i.e. winnin').
2.Kf2 Rxc3+ and then Rxc1 follows but the win obviously is not as spectacular aas when black plays 2.Kg4.
Too bad 2.Kg4 is not forced or does not loss quicker, as then the solution(with 2.Kg4) would be more pretty.
4. ... Be7 mate
kf2,rxn dis+,k move,rxr --white would be up 2 pieces
4. ... Be7 mate nxb
Why not 4.Bf3? n.d5 stops be7 mate
Thankyou very much
Great puzzle ! I saw the movie and he indeeds speaks of a rook sacrifice on h3, brilliant!
Thank you for the diagram
like the look
if rook checks and white plays kf2,,,,black will play rxn dis.+, king moves a nd nlack now plays rxr=====black is up 2 pieces
Great, I saw the movie and a friend told me the problem was cool, but I haven't seen it until now. Thank you!!
