Hi Salvap, those sets are very nice. I really like that bohemian set.
When I study chess, and especially endgames, I prefer the bigger sets:
(white to play and checkmates black in 3 moves)
Thx. I use bigger sets for playing or quiet games replay. btw Rd1 Kf8 Rg1 Ke8 Rg8++
Nice sets Salvap, especially the 3" wooden Spanish Indajesa set. Now I think I need one for the collection...
Thx Akovyazin, Not an easy task finding one of this sets, if I remeber well you may find one in http://www.todocoleccion.net/app/buscador?from=top&bu=ajedrez.
Rc1 or Rg1.
Surely any rook move works for the 1st move?
white: Ke6 Re1
white checkmates black in 3 moves:
1. Re2, Re3, Re4 or Re5 - Kd8 or Kf8
2. Rook to the c-file (if 1. ... - Kd8) or rook to the g-file (if 1. ... - Kf8) - Ke8
3. mate on c8 or g8
1. Rc1, Kd8; 2.Rc2, Ke8; 3. Rc8 mate. Similar technique for any R move along the first rank, as Matt suggests. Or any R move along the E file. So, R-anywhere mates in three.
ok ok :-) ... R-anywhere mates in three. Thx 4 the lesson!
I'm considering buying this beauty:
It's cool Bananamoon, but what would you use it for?
I just use my normal set for analysis. But I still wanted to join in with this thread so I've posted a picture of my bookends instead - look upon them and praise them!
