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

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 :)

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

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.
