    In your red lines white can just play 4. Qxd3 as 3...Re4+ is a discovered check but not a double check so the white king doesn't have to move.

    Nice puzzle.

    nice

    Wow! So easy.
  • #146

    Going for a draw does not often enter my mind with so many pieces still in play.

    If 1. Rd4 then 1...Rxf2+ either checkmates or at least wins a bishop for black.  If after 1...Rxf2+ 2. Kxf2 then 2...Re2+ 3. Kg1 Qe3+ 4. Kh1 Qxf3+ 5. Kg1 Qg2#.  If after 1...Rxf2+ 2. Kg1 then at the very least 2...Rf1+ 3. Qxf1 Qxd4+ wins a bishop for black.  Please feel free to correct me if I miscalculated or improve or expand on the second line.

    Excellent analysis Bryan!!  Here is a picture for those that didn't follow.

    What I would add is that after 1...Rxf2 2. Kg1

    then 2..Rg2+ 3. Kh1 Qxf3 follows, with threats of discovered check (Rxg3+ followed by Qg2# come to mind) and also Ree2 still, should reinforcements be needed.  If White's queen ever leaves the back rank, then Re1# is easy.  White can get in a few courtesy checks on Black's King, but White will soon fall.

     



    Thank you.  I saw 1. Rd4 Rxf2+ 2. Kg1 Rg2+ 3. Kh1 Qxf3 and suspected it was crushing for black but did not feel like analyzing the courtesy checks to see that there was indeed no perpetual check or even a checkmate for white. 

    Also any effort by white to challenge the black queen also fails, mainly due to the threat of double check.  For example 4. Rf4 allows 4...Rh2+ (double check) 5. Kxh2 Re2+ 6. Kg1 Qg2#.

    You're meant to figure out why Black is now facing perpetual check. (If the King goes to h6, White can check forever on the h and g files. If to h8 or g8, White plays Rf8+, then Rf7+ and so on.)

    Thank you Gil.  That one had me stumped.

    if black doesn't accept the draw with Kh6, it follows a simple mate

    i dont get it. What draw? kh6 is mate in a few moves.

    Yes.  If black doesn't accept the draw and plays Kh6 then there is a mate.

    Yeah, I get it now, it was just my poor interpretation skills in english. My bad ^^.

    You should implement a slashdot style moderation system for posts, or at least edit them so that there is actually some chess related material in the thread. I am getting sick of seeing indians writing 'first!'.

    sunday? o.o

  • #158

    i didn't understood, why would white accept draw ?

  • #159

    Nice one!

    Actually is going to be a win for White. Why is it called as "White to Draw". In few more moves it will be a White win.
