       Here is the solution for #386 

    Caiello's line was correct , but the first move is not Ba1 :)

    So, here is a fantastic and rather complicated position, derived from one of my games (and altered a bit).

     

    The first few moves are unique, though at the end there could be several moves that are winning.

    shoopi ,thanks for your post :)

                  And now - can some magic help improving chess skills ?

     


    Lucid dreaming is the ability to recognize that you are dreaming while you are having a dream.

    During a lucid dream, the dreamer remains aware of what is happening in the waking world while experiencing a vivid dream world at the same time.  Lucid dreamers think clearly and are able to control their actions while in their dream.

    Many lucid dreamers are able to control everything that happens in a lucid dream. They can give themselves special powers, direct the actions of other characters in the dream or change the dream scenery. They may even be able to plan a dream before they have it.

    Some people are natural lucid dreamers.  Recently, the ability to dream lucidly has become desirable, and people who have never had lucid dreams before are attempting to learn how to have lucid dreams.

    Just to clarify, my last position was white to play and win.

    I can give hints or the solution if you would like.

    1. Qh6 is the right tactical idea, and you get points for seeing it. However, at the moment it doesn't work, since black can just capture the queen 1... Bxh6 and after 2. Rxh7+ Kg8 3. Rg1+ black can just block with 3... Bg7 as the queen also defends the bishop.

    So, white must first build up the pressure with 1. Rg1, and black will most likely defend with 1... Rg8. Now, how to proceed?

    After 1.Rg1 Rg8 isn't it time for 2.Qh6 ?

    Yes but what does black reply? his move is forced.

    Black are obliged to play 2...Qxd3  and after that i think white will move one of the rooks ...

    There are other variations of course after the thrust, 4. c5!
