  • #63

  • #64

    Wow, nice fork!

  • #65

    would have been cooler if white won after that. But it was pretty cool

  • #66

    Cool position.

  • #67

    I Find the way in Third Attempt

    White had to play for a draw. Although superior in material, his position was too awkward to achive a win. Blacks advanced pawns left white no other choice.

    Good puzzle!!! I am unable to get the puzzle solved. By simply moving all possible moves I solved :P :P. Thanks to the comments that clarifed by doubts :)

  • #71

    Cool

  • #72

    THIS WAS NICE

  • #73

    Bb5 is always winning a queen even as first move... or am I mistaking?

  • #74

    Nice puzzle!

  • #75

    nice delay on the queen fork.

  • #76

    Hmmm, interesting

  • #77

    AFTER NXQ THIS IS A TOUGH NUT TO WIN FOR WHITE...

  • #78

    nice

    Didn't find this easy but then Saturday's puzzle is often the hardest of the week.

    I also tried 1.Bb5 first & it's not immediately obvious why that doesn't work until you see that Black's king can shuffle between d1 & e2. At least I found the correct move on my third attempt !

    Nobody else has offered a continuation from the final position here which suggests that it's obvious to the better players (but not to me). I don't immediately see why this is winning for White - after all, the White king is restricted from moving to g1/g2 to support it's bishop's attack on f1, so isn't it worth looking at what happens next (?) ....



    Anybody up to showing how this goes from here on ?      Laughing

    Good puzzle & great thread today - lots of intelligent comments !

    I'd like to see the continuation.  It is not over yet.
