    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?

  • #191

    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!

  • #193

    nic one....good puzzle

  • #194

    Easy. First.

  • #195

    Wow, hard one...

  • #196

    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).

  • #197

    long... indeed

  • #198

    can somebody explain this?

    In the final position, Black must either lose a piece or give Rook for minor piece in a quiet position. Between masters, the win is then just a question of technique, but it would take a long struggle before it was done. Marco resigned on the spot, knowing there was no realistic chance of saving the game.

    I personaly think that they should try to include a few more puzzles like these, instead of having the large majority being games of "mate in (2,3,4)". It makes great variety for the daily puzzle, and the variety is a good benefit.
