Problem ID: 0314989
Thanks to fwhoberg for suggesting this problem for tactics trainer in http://www.chess.com/forum/view/more-puzzles/puzzles-needed-for-tactics-trainer?page=38
got the first three but didn't see Rh3!! incredibly difficult problem
great one... congrats fredrich
the one who suggested this.. he first asked me if i can solve it.. but i couldnt.. then posted in Royal chess (http://www.chess.com/groups/home/royalchess). but none of our members were able to solve it. then we knew it is such a precious tactic.. then as per jaidev's suggestion requested to add to tactics trainer..
his name is friedrich!!!
dont worry... I call him many names....
and proud to say that he is my friend!
glad you guys enjoyed it will post some more soon
yes my name is Friedrich but , my friends call me Fredie would you to play a game with me?
It is difficult problem because Rh3!! sac is required after rather obvious moves. Since its pass rate is only 16% I think it should be ranked higher than 2500
yeah dr of oz, it will be in time. it's already at 2584
Very happy to say that I saw ...Rh3 before playing ...f5+. Plus, I kicked it down from 2600 to 2591!
Thankyou very much.
Pass rate is still
Seems like 31/180.
hei did you made it on first attempt?
Yes. I'm sure I've seen that pattern before. The key is knowing it well enough to find it during a game.
