    The point of Be1 is that black has a tactic on all other squares so white will not win a piece.  The idea is to simply move the knight, and after white plays BxQ(b7), black plays RxR(c1)+, regaining the material as the white queen on h1 falls next move.

     

    With the bishop on e1, Rxc1 is not check, so white has time to save the queen.  With the weak dark squares around the black king, white has a significant material advantage.

    There's no way left to defend the knight on c6. I'm not sure if the bishop has to go to e1 specifically though.


     It does. Otherwise 1. ...    Nd4    2. Bxb7    Rxc1+    3. Kg2    Rxh1

    I don't think these chess pzzles are very logical.

    Is 2...Nc6 the best move for black?  The rook is going to get taken either way, and the knight just ends up getting stuck there in the end.  Seems like black could have done something else there like move the queen.
