first (in dat ass)
Not bad @ all.
As white you would eventually need to know how to checkmate with a bishop and a knight. I know that this is possible, but I do not know how to force it. This is not much of a problem, because I have never even seen a possition which needed this before this puzzle!
Is there a mechanism for replies to comments on chess.com? Would anyone like to reply if you are able.
then you gotta get him with a bishop and a knight. Not easy but possible.
good one indeed.
Nice Queen Sacrifice leading to a overwhelming Knight Fork, forking black's Queen and King! Thanks for the lesson!
was it a draw or what?
Call me naive, but isn't the point of Chess to capture the KING? 1. Q-f1 leads to eventual stalemate, even if it is the most logical move, it's NOT the best. I don't think the material left (W-KNB vs lone king) can force in 50 if this move is used...
Nice! But it would be rather difficul to mate with a knight and bishop only
btw, if: 4 ... K-e3, black will win (white must, eventually give up opposition, and when that happens, a pawn will promote).
Cool :) !
very easy for a saturday.
following move is that no pawn can be queened while W saves his pieces
