Your analysis of Rxg7 is incorrect. Always be sure to keep an eye out for sneaky tactics your opponent can use against you! As I posted in an earlier analysis:

Pierre, there's a rule in chess called stalemate. If no legal moves are available for one side to play, the game ends in a draw. If the queen takes the rook on e2, white would no longer have any legal moves. The king would not be able to move to e6, e7, or e8 because the e file is covered by the queen. The king would not be able to move to f6 or f8 because those squares are covered by the bishop. And last, the king would not be able to move to g6 or g8 because those squares are covered by the pawn and black king. White would not be able to move anywhere, so the game would end in a draw.

This is a game with which I am not familiar.  Brilliant, and so far beyond anything I would ever come up with that it's like a foreign language.

Dear jinnd,

Posting in all caps does not magically make you right. Please look at one of serveral dozen comments, or one of 3 or 4 analyses, and learn why this is a good puzzle.


first off all caps does magically make you right. second I did what you said and the puzzle makes alot more sense although it's still a shakey stalemate. again what if black says "Imma use my bishop"?

good food for thought :)

ok thanks to the pianist...

I had seen that whites only chances was a draw but stiking the king up there on puspose is "grand art". What a plan !)

Thank you again I appreciate your sparing a few lines for me ;

Why didn't the Queen take the rook?

pierre_67

Because they want to win and taking the rook makes a draw due to stalemate ...

I just asked the same question a while ago ;)

The_Chess_Ninja

bit complicated.. but good puzzle! I hope tomorrow isn't another easy puzzle...

burntalot

how come the queen did not take the rook

xXxFatexXx

Wow, that's. a pretty crazy puzzle... stalemate vs 3 fold repetition.
