# 4/14/2012 - White to Draw

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 end

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.

Good one!

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

good

easy

easy

I dont see a check mate

why is puzzles always for white?

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.

pretty easy

White to draw?  White to Wins.
