So after g5-g6, u intend to push the pass pawn pair to get queen. But bfore that black pushes g pawn and checkmates the king my friend with queen and bishop.
Which line does this comment refer to?
i meant the only possible playing lines for white.
I don't understand that.
White has three playable lines:
1. Rxb7+, forcing mate. Clearly the best move, but certainly not the only move to avoid loss (which is why I originally commented).
1. Rxc8+ Rxc8 2. Qxc8+ Kxc8 3. Rc1+ Kb8 4. Nd7+ Ka7 5. Rc8 (5. g3 may also be playable) g3 6. Ra8+ Kxa8 7. N5b6+ forcing perpetual check.
1. Rc8+ Rxc8 2. Nxg6 (my latest suggestion)
Now 2...Rxc2 3. Nxh4 leaves White a piece up in an endgame.
Moves like 2...Qh5 are answered by 3. Qe4. White is still a piece up. What does Black do next?
Ya u r right. Rc8+ is the best move , but in the game i played Rc7 and lost( If u could see move 29 in the game).
But the game might be interesting if black retains bishop and moves king as to who mates first.
Genius excelled RxC7
Rxb7+ but king rejects to take rook again rook a7+
