In one of my games we arrived at a certain moment at the following position:

edit:it's black's move!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let's start with a basic question for beginners:
How can black win the white queen?

scroll down for answer

 



Answer:

Re2+

So we agree that black can win the white queen. Now another interesting question can be asked: Should black win the white queen?
After taking the queen you end up in an endgame of two rooks and bishop vs queen and bishop. (plus the pawns)
Would you play Re2+ and take the queen but lose the rook?  Or do you want to keep the rook?

In an endgame of queen and bishop vs rooks and bishop , which side do you prefer?

 

post your idea's please!
