Good

I only missed the cxb6 move :S nice puzzle though and so well-calculated!

But what if 4. - Kd7 ?
(see my previous comment)

why not 2....hxg6?

i have the same question

because 2. ..hxg6? 3.Qxc7! and black has no compensation!

There's a mate after queening :)

9. bxa8=Q+, Kc7

10. Ba5+ Black is checkmated!

ooh.... it's a tough puzzle. but finally i solved.

joewy82

just amazing... I like it...

CsokaEndre

Still, it seems to me that the puzzle is wrong. I do not see what to do after 4. - Kd7. Any idea?

@CsokaEndre- I think 5.Qb2 is a good move in your line, but there may be better. I didn't bother looking at more than one continuation so there's a lot of room for improvement for either side I'm sure.


Edit: Actually I think 8..Ke8 is better. 8..Ke6, 9.Qxd5+ Kf6, 10.Bc3+ black loses the queen.

why not 2....hxg6?

QxQ (can't do it earlier since g2 is under attack)

Kantor2100

very nice

CsokaEndre

But what if 6. - Qxc5 ?

Jeffmon

@CsokaEndre- It's dangerous to leave the g6 bishop on the board. 6..Qxc5, 7.Rxd5+ exd5, 8.Qxb7+ Ke6, 9.Qf7+ Ke5, 10.Bc3+ Kd6, 11.Bb4 pins the queen.

Amazing!
