    y does he offer a draw,if he has mate?

  • #62

    easy

    this is the first puzzle I have solved that didn't end with a final Mate. You can chase that King around a while, but still odd

    I dont understand, whats the use -> its no check mate, and you will still loose in the endSealed

    sorry the daily puzzle was first

    Very impressive.  I can see how this line forces the draw.  Black King MUST move back and forth between g7 and g8-or-h8 and soon draw by repeated positions, checked by the f7-f8 Rook (while the f4 Rook prevents escape to h6, because Rf7+ Kf6, Rh4+ Kg5, Pawnf4#).

    However,  I think there are other lines in which Black cannot force a win.
    For instance, I haven't found a forced black win after 1. Qf1.

    playing white.... up a minor piece and pawn, a draw is not your goal.

    No win yet, but can get a material advantage I think

    why is puzzles always for white?

  • #76

    I wonder if there was a way white could have done better than a draw.  Perhaps with many more moves.

    no chakemate! whatever others say, it's not a good puzzle. nothing to learn from it.
