Neat puzzle. Still took me 8 presses of the 'Restart' button!
2. Rxg7 is better
Certainly not! 2 Rxg7? Rh7! and White is lost! A. Shirov had White! So you can be sure he found the best combination here ... (see post #143)
Thank you for the EXCELLENT puzzle, best one in a while, REALLY had to think... MEOW to ALL!!!
YES, but BLACKS BUSTED!
Kind of hard.
Wow, that was hard!
Genius. Thanks for the great moves.
Can't you take the pawn on g7 with the rook before you move the bishop to b8?
White to move and give an unusual checkmate...
Shirov, Alexei (2450) vs Zhuravliov, Valerij (2460)
1. Bb8? R:b8
Nc3 Qa1+ and draw
what am i trying to do?
