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.

WORST PUZZLE EVER. WHITE LOST THAT HANDS DOWN WHAT THE HECK WERE YOU THINKING. LOOK AT IT. EVEN ENDING POSITION BLACK CAPTURES ROOK THEN WHAT?


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"?

merce

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 ;)

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

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

My only problem with this puzzle is the starting position.  For me, there are 3 key points to the starting position.  1) Black's King is pinned.  2) Black is one move away from a pawn converting to Queen.  3) A black pawn is threatening white's rook.  But what is the move that gets us to this position?  White would not have moved into a square threatened by black's pawn, so the logical deduction i that the last move was 0. ... f5 (I use 0 since the puzzle starts at 1 and there's no history to the game whatsoever).  Now, we can assume that black is a decent player as he has 4 pawns and a bishop vs white's rook.  So f5 is a poor move compared to h5, which allows black's king some movement and still threatens the rook.  That single move renders the draw virtually impossible.  White then has 2 movement options: Rh4 and Rg1.  If Rg1 then black can move his bishop to protect e1, Kf7, and then black pushes his f pawn to support the e pawn. If white tries to check the king after that the black bishop can take the white rook without fear of stalemate.  Even if the rook attacks the e pawn fromt he 2nd rank it can be safely sacrificed. Or if Rh4 then e1=Q+ followed by Kf7 Qe2.  With the queen covering the h pawn the rook has no viable options and black can attack.  So while the puzzle as it stands is white forcing a draw unless black sacrifices its e pawn (and probably a win for white) I find the initial position hard to accept.

Ron Paul sucks.  I'm voting for ZZ Top. 

You see, they're bad & nationwide, sharp-dressed, sometimes get blue jean blues, just got paid, were arrested for driving while blind, & sometimes they wear cheap sunglasses while looking for some Tush in Dallas, Texas, brother!
