11/13/2012 - Equalizing

I played Qe8+ with plans to play Qxe7 before the correct move.  Maybe I was wrong because the check was unnecessary?

Not too bad...  We need more of these where it's find the best move, and not just Mate in x-amount of moves.

The key is in the Title, "Equalizing"...after 2.Qxb7, White is roughly equal.

i think in black's move Bxf3 would be much better. one pawn is one pawn. especially if it is just near the king.

What was that.... All we did was take a bishop. I thought these puzzles went for checkmate or at least something awesome. Just a bishop....

Qe8+ Kh7

Qxe7

 

Same result, and arguably better position. But if the puzzle isn't going to lead to mate, why not harrassing the black queen instead?

Because winning a piece is better?

Also, after 1. Qe8+, Bf8; 2. what?

Well I am not very bright. I was looking for a check or checkmate? I understand the advantage of removing opponent pieces, but could we have least played out the match and gotten a check or checkmate, no matter the amount of moves. ARGH!Cry
