1.Ne6 is not yhe right first move.
Smiley, in your line, after 3.Bg7 black can play 3...Kb2 (instead of 3...Qc1+) .
I thought the solution for a problem, wasn't actually the problem? It doesn't appear so in this case. Besides, I am not sure whether to be puzzled by this puzzle...
The puzzle is not easy . 1.Bf1 is not the right first move too.
Important in finding the solution is the first move,but the second one as well.
Yes Smiley, you are right - i gave this puzzle to a chess program and it showed at least 3 solutions - 1.Ne6 wins too.
I am sorry , this puzzle is from 1928 year -long before computers, and as Smiley showed has not one solution and is not correct.
I tried to change a little as the authors idea can work:
White to play and win
The solution for #223 :
I am still thinking on #224 :)
nice collection of puzzles....
thanks 4 sharing....
Here is a solution for #224 without promoting the pawn into Queen :
Here is a position/puzzle I've posted in another thread:
Does black have a chance? How. (by the way, to prevent confusion, the 8th rank is at the top [the black light-squared bishop is on e8])
#228 is not solved yet . I tried it but am missing something :
I'm missed 2. Ne7!! (I don't have a computer program to check my problems, sorry!) Of course, I suppose this means that black does not have much of a chance in my original position, but maybe someone with a computer could check my original position....... so lets change the position to after 1....Nc3 2. Re5 or 2.h7
impossible became i- am- possible , here
Here black win :
If we change position a little - I am not sure if somewhere there aren't mistakes ...
