Black to move
I give up.
I see 1...Rc8 2. Bf3 Bxe4 3. Qxc8 Bxf3+ 4. Kg1 Qxb4 as best. My full thoughts below:
I think Rc8 simply wins, as Remellion shows.
Let's make it happen!
I would say that White is better, but 1...Tc8 keeps Black in the game... 2.Rxc6 Txc6 3.Da3 Txc1 4.Dxc1 Rd6 5.Kg2 with a slight edge for White.
I missed that. But something else seems interesting in that analysis: 1...Tc8 2. Rxc6 Txc6 3. Da3 d3!? 4. Rxd3 De3 with a cute mess.
I think this is fantastic stuff.
I like d3, but what happens after
6.Bf1 Qf3+ where I believe Black will have to settel for a draw as The knight on d3 gaurds all the important squares and the knights don't look very well.
What do you think?
Oh, sorry just saw,
5.Rd1, black has Qxe4+
so now I have another doubt,
What happens after
Because if Qxc6, then we have the simple Bxd3, and if Nxc6 we have Nxd3.
4.d3 is an illegal move, it is not possible for White to play 4.d3
Well, that, and I did give the line in that previous post: 3...d3 4. Rxc6 Qxf2 5. Bxd3 Nxc6 (or 5. Qxa5 dxe2.) White falls to numerous tactics.
After d3 Nxd3 Qe3 Re1 looks ok for white as Qa2 drops h2 pawn after Qxe4+ Kg1 Qe3+ Kf1 Qh3+
Black is in control after Rc8.
@WebZero : after d3 Nxd3 Qe3 Re1, Black has Qxe4.
I mentioned it for Qa2 continuation in case you missed it. e4 pawn will fall either way. It's quite obvious.
Positional response to e4?
