    Why did the puzzle end there and not before/after? .... good puzzle: typical for a Saturday.

    The puzzle ended there because white has just forced a piece win that black can no longer save with any defensive or counter measures.

    Some of the toughest puzzles to solve are ones where the puzzle outcome is greater for the winning side than, with best play on both sides, it really should be.  Black had opportunities on moves 2 and 4 to remain only down a pawn, and probably be down positionally as well, but not losing a clear piece.

    Probably because Marco didn't fancy playing a pawn down in a clear position against Tarrasch, and hoped to find a saving resource somewhere in the ensuing complications (which are far from clear unless you have seen this before).

  • #155

  • #156

  • #157

    couldnt get the last move

  • #158

    What happens on 3...Rf8xd8 ? How does White wins material on 3...Rf8xd8 ? Because the game continuation will not work with 3...Rf8xd8

     

    Retifan found it:

     

    3...Rf8xd8 4.Nxe5 Bxe4 5.Nxe4 Nxe4 6.Nd3 f5 7.f3 Bc5+ 8.Kf1!
