first you ma on the page, hahahaha
Thought I missed something.
Please be relevant, helpful & nice!
1.Ba1 is another solution. It's kind of annoying to play another correct move and be told it is incorrect.
Agreed, did the same.
kb3 bc3 ka2
I agree. I did the same thing.
ba1 is also correct i played that and it said incorrect when it is a good move ot is so frustatrating
Doesn't 1.ba1 also draw?..........bxa1....2.kb3..... 1/2??? have I missed something?
No you haven't missed a thing, you're right. It's just that the draw given by the quiz is two moves rather than three - it's more economical.
I don't know if quicker is always better but why prolong the inevitable?
Ya for sure, thanks for the reply, It was just bugging me that I got it wrong =)
its very easy
I know what you all mean about being told a move is incorrect when it still solves the problem.. Ba1 is just as good...
For me, today's puzzle was much easier - more obvious - than yesterday's winning endgame, even without the title that gives us the goal demanded by the situation.
