Try to solve this. I dare you :p
Each move is the only winning move.
I've received a lot of angry messages saying this is "stupid". However, those people are the "stupid" ones because taking black's rook is stalemate :p
wow I realized the general thrust of the problem, but rather than toiling away figuring out the precise sequence, I put it into Hiarcs and it came up with mate in 18 in less than a second. Amazing problem. However, I'd add that it is cooked, because instead of 9. g4, white could play 9. c8+ breaking the stalemate, and simply winning a rook and pawn ending.
With so many different puzzles in this thread, I don't know which comment is regarding which puzzle.
Why are there so many puzzles on one page. I was solving NateTimms's puzzle unknowingly, not the official one. Why the official puzzle is not on top? Chess.com needs to be more organized.
The NateTimms puzzle as post #1, two daily puzzles, and other puzzles on the first page. I couldn't agree with you more.
Congratulations! Of all the puzzles in this thread, yours is the best one.
nice puzzle and fun
definitely one of the more difficult puzzles
Oh solved this crazy puzzle , but i guess Timm you are right , but this is not an ideal situation here.
People stay up all night for what? To be seen? It gets old and people Don't care anymore.
Always agreeable. Testing: you'll pay me a trillion dollars on mars,ok?
