this was really easy for a saturday. and where is the canadian guy with his analysis?
I would say that it would be pretty hard for them to have topped Friday's puzzle. They should have switched the two around.
I miss incredibill's analysis too. It is always great to find a thorough analysis on the first page, instead of wading through pages of posts to find the answers you are looking for. It also tends to decrease the number of people asking the same questions over and over again.
Best version!!!! Draw! Red and Blue move line correct variations!
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:
Hey, sorry I don't usually try the puzzles.
Today I figured, hell give them a shot and opppssss.... :(
I don't get it, can anybody tell me why the queen doesn't take the castle ?

I know a Troll can have such a large appetite .When any of you have a moment i thought pancakes and waffles would be a nice meal for him..Any way you want to serve them would be kind of you..thanks for your time and resume your Chess please...MsJean
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"?
good food for thought :)

I do not want to block him so I will ask you to help detour him using .....posts of pancakes and waffles .Any way you want to serve them would be very kind of you..thanks for your time and resume your Chess Forum please...MsJean
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?
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...
how come the queen did not take the rook
