Problem ID: 0021807
very good training, it helps me to improve my self in way of analysing the problem & findout the best possible solution.
Thank u very much.
If kf3 then black replies Re1 which leads to either black leading by a rook or a queen
You don't see a lot of king forks!
Yes, I totally missed the K fork. I do not think I have ever seen that before
Sometimes His Majesty has to solve the problems personally.
Wow I'm on a roll today. I can't get out of being a ~1200 player but I'm blowing through these 1400/1500 tactics like nothing.
The king is a powerful attacking piece in the endgame.
good work nethinim. i got 3 out of 4 and still minus 1
King fork, baby!
That was NICE!!! King fork is RIGHT!!!
I cannot remember ever seeing such a king fork!
how about this:
1. Rxe3 Rxe3 2. Kf2 Re2+ 3. Kxg3 f2 4. Kg2
and if 4...Re1 then 5. Rf1 Rxf1 6. Kxf1 and there's no stopping the pawn
and if 4...f1=Q+ then just 5. Kxf1 and the rook on h1 is still defending the passed pawn on h5
I've not once ever considered the King to be capable of a fork! This tactic has probably just revolutionized my endgame ideas!!... in a very limited way ofcourse... not often do two hanging pieces come so close to the king.
Yesd, the king fork is an unexpected tactic, but just as effective as any other fork.
