So you are saying that we are supposed to calculate ALL the possible moves to "solve" a puzzle ?
Example : mate in one.
You did not "solve" it if you didn't see the five mating moves, and the fact that 1.Qb3 draws, according to your definition.
i guess you have to read and understand thoroughly what i have posted.. what i meant "calculate all the colateral variations".. these are the variations you have to calculate after you have given the key move..in order to prove that you have comppletely solved a puzzle, you have to analyze all variations that would arise depending on black's reply..
Which one, precisely, is not given in #19 ?
- not #19, but your comment in #11 which suggests 1.Kb2??? which according to you can give mate more reliable..the key move you suggested is wrong, thus follows the variations as well.
Her plan is to post a comment every one or two days so her topic comes in the "Most Recent Posts" section at different times of the day, hoping that she gets more viewers. Ignore it.
- well, honestly i dont have such plans in mind..i posted this puzzle to challenge evryone who viewed it if they can solve it,..and that is all. i dont consider it as an honor that this may be included every week as "most recent posts", i would rather prefer to achieve a higher rating by playing chess in this site to prove something- and that I call honor.
If I follow your reasoning :
1-None gave the full lines in the same post, except Irontiger.
2-Irontiger got the puzzle wrong at first.
3-Thus, the puzzle is not solved.
Do you see a problem ? No ?
1-None has managed to create a fire, except Gronk the cavesman who put together the idea of silex from Hurk the stone carver and the idea of hitting from Durk the hunter.
2-Gronk the cavesman failed when he first tried clay instead of silex.
3-Thus, fire has not being invented yet.
Now I understand Sharrocks (#32) was true, and I will follow is advice. It was a pretty puzzle, but your trolling ruins it all.
there were more variations in it..tnx for liking it.
