Marcel Duchamp's Problem

  • #1

    In 1943, M. Duchamp posed a "problem with no solution". From the initial position, the following moves are suggested by Larry Evans (on http://www.toutfait.com/articals.php?id=47066, the article is written by Francis Naumann).

    But there is one different proposal because of Black's sixth move.
    But there is another possibility for White to continue after Black's ...Rg8:

    By the end of the article, the author writes: "Duchamp has given us, in effect, a problem with no solution."

    Do you agree?
