#1501: Legal. Composer was T.R. Dawson in 1927.
In fact, that position comes with a question: "Specify 2 moves that black must have definitely played." By specifying a move, it means that you identify the piece that moves, the starting and ending squares, if a piece was captured, and if so what type of piece was captured.
Edit: I just read JavierGil's post: he's slightly wrong, there are in fact 2 moves that you can deduce must have been played, not just one.
Really? I'm pretty sure that it's only one...
...Nh3xRg1, and ...Ng1-h3 to get back out again. Simple!
Yeah 117 is illegal. There's nothing to capture the last piece after the Knights have mopped up.
How can you say? You're post 114.
Wait.. is my computer glitching or is yours? 'Cause for me, the post I am posting now is post 1485...
When a post is deleted, the posts after it move one down.
When a post is deleted, the posts after it moves one down.
But it only does that on some computers. Correct? Or is it browsers? Because the post I am posting is #1487.
Why have you corrected my correct grammar to something incorrect? "...posts..." is plural, so "...move..." is correct, no?
Yes, you are posting #1487, but if the comments which have now been deleted (or the account has been deleted) were still there, your comment would be much more highly-numbered. So the post which Remellion was referring to was #1501 when he posted it, but is now less highly-numbered.
Sorry. I missed something.
Ok... Thanks for that. I was quite confused for a moment.
*that moment when they try to correct you and fail*
b. Obviously legal.
