OOoooh very nice, didnt recognise that pattern coming up. Whenever i try to create something like that, even if it "works", i cant get it to fully work as theres easily a better solution
The previous puzzle was an attempt to complicate a puzzle of A.Troizky.
White to play and win
Maybe because he considered it a "lighter" puzzle? still it was fun to solve, next time no puzzles modes please
Yes, I think Shoopi is right I was looking for a more difficult puzzle , and here it is , without solution :
White to move and win
I recently posted a variation of this: http://www.chess.com/forum/view/more-puzzles/amazing-pawn-ending
Perhaps something like this:
White to move and win.
it's a study by Korolkov, one of my favourites:)
I'll start you off:
Someone tell me...
what is this?
Ok, here's the whole thing:
Check movelist for variations
rooperi, why did you give the solution so early (or 'soon', how do you say it?) ?
A very nice puzzle Rooperi , a piquant final position
Here is one more :
Aquajet17, you showed the main line of the solution !
Here is a line after 2...Ka4 :
Black to play
How this game will end ?
I don't think black can win, because his king is so far from white's pawns, so white can throw his rook for black's pawn, and then win with his two passers
On the 11-th move in Caiello's line black can play stronger and draw - how ?
Find the best move for white (Master level)!
