11/3/2017 - The Art of Equalizing

  • #121

    1800!!?? Again with the Queen . . .  Asked and answered.

  • #122

    After Qf3 can’t black just play Qd8 with a forced draw? Rad1 or Re2 are the only moves that I see for white. 

     

    White to move and draw?!? Interesting idea for a puzzle I guess...

    super nice

  • #124

    I don't get it. Why can't black just play 2...Qc5. Looks winning to me. :/

    Isn't Black still winning though after Qf3? He can play Qc5.

    Qc5 is not the best move for Black, the engine says +0.84 after Qc5, while Qd7 and Qd8 is 0.00

    I just played some (computer) moves after Qc5 to show you that the position is better for White - and definitely not "winning" for Black.

     

    To those asking, why not to take the Queen:

    It is mate with Rxf2#!

    After  2,,,,,,,Qd7  black is definitely winning.

    Missed it several times.  White has several worse options.

    Why not 2. ..., Txf2+; 3. Dxf2, Nxf2, in stead of 2...., Qc5?

    Black lady is hanging too. White takes the rook and if - Nxf2 then RxQ. The black N is dropping too if black decides to keep his Q.

    No, the position is better for white. Black´s N is dropping and the white rook in a1 comes to the center after Re2...

    White plays for a win. After Re2 the other R in a1 is activated - and the black N is hanging too.

    White plays R into e2 (and activates his a-R playing it into the e1 square). Black is loosing his N and his K is in a vulnerable position. Black may get a draw only after a blunder of white.

    How should it be with a computer? It seems to show a better position for white.
