What's the point here, a draw?
Yes. If White plays anything else, then Black will win (note that both White knights are attacked).
unless white don't get tired of being put into chess and moves to a white spot and allows a fork.....
nice puzzle... interesting how the knights are perfects placed to achieve a fork should black put a foot wrong.
This is one of those positions that will NEVER come up in a game. And, sure enough, they took this from a 'draw study' in 1930... It's just too perfect to be true ...
if black moves his king anywhere than white will fork the king and the queen.
do more chess puzles end in draws ?, i'm just entering around 1300 level here with the trainer. is it regular in those problems to occure ?
Very nice, but very unusual. Percival is correct, this is from a 1930 draw study.
Great puzzle. :)
Drawing by perpetual check is always a hazard when one thinks with a queen up lonely as she is.
What are we trying to do here? Get a draw?
Definitely one of my favorite tactics on here. (Maybe I like forks too much.)
Kind of funny.
