It was Tarrasch who originally found this variation
Great puzzle, lot of calculation invovled, definetly needing a deep insight into the middle game.
nice puzzle..by the way knew it beforehand
Why did the solution end when it did...with no checkmate shown? Is it so obvious they didn't show it? Help please!
Wouldn't this pull a win instead of a draw?
Edit: Nevermind, Queen to h8 or h7 is checkmate.
what happens if black takes with the knight on move 4 instead of move 5?
This puzzle is a well known trap out of the Ruy Lopez Opening (I don't remember which variation...), where black plays 0-0 which is a mistake, losing a pawn. I believe all these moves are forced.
11. C4 was devastating! Eleven (11) deep! Thanks for the lesson!
nic one....good puzzle
Wow, hard one...
This is a known trap, black has to take on d4 before 0-0. I've actually played this in a game, so I got the puzzle really fast (although I was unaware black could avoid the loss of a piece for so long).
can somebody explain this?
