    OK, I think I understand the logic -- the knight was needed to defend f5; he's faced with losing a piece or checkmate and one's as bad as the other against Bobby Fischer, so resign.

    I keep confusing myself thinking the scenarios given are all entirely forced on pain of immediate checkmate -- puzzle brain.

    Variation 1: Crafty response (Min/Max/Depth 3/10/10). Black could postpone checkmate for another 30+ moves.

    Variation 2: Now, this is what I find most interesting: if I set 2 engines play against each other without forcing first move by White as in the puzzle, Crafty's optimal move is...

    Very nice!

    why go Rf6? can't you skip it and move pawn E5 and then Qh7 for checkmate. I don't understand K to G8, seems like a wasted move.

  • #171

    For black there is also simple 1 ... f6 ?

  • #172

    if e5 without Rf6, black plays f5.there is no checkmate now, check it out. thats exactly why white blocks the f pawn

  • #173

    I see, Knight protecting F5.  Very good

  • #174

    What would happen if instead of 5 Nf5 black tried e5, followed by moving the black queen to f7?

    It may not get black checkmated right away, but it loses a piece for nothing.  White can move the d4 bishop to safety on the next move, as no other white piece is being attacked and no other white piece can be attacked by black on his first move.
