I think it's clearly over. I don't know if there's somebody who can give any other escaping move.
I think this has been very tough, interesting, or anything you may say.
My friend gave me 1 week to answer this puzzle starting from the day I was asked (also the same day I first upload the problem).
But it seems it's already solved within 3 days.
Thanks for all who have contributed and especially the solver.
Thanks! True_Beginner, I will be happy at solving more puzzles again!
Here is my suggested solution:
Hello stngr, 1. Qaf1 is answered by 1...Be6! threatening 2...Bd5+
I would have had removed my hat too had it been "Ke2" was the only move that could unlock the mating combinations.
Hi Asorski. Thanks for noting. 1... Be6, you said?
well here is the reply:
OOops! my apology. I placed the bishop not on its original post at d6!. Well.. I should say, damn good puzzle ... I salute the one who made it.
illegal move ang 2. Rd8+. After 1...Be6, 2. Rg8+ pwede pa but that fails simply to 1... Bxg8! and no mate in 3 is in sight.
ok. well, check out my original chess problems at More Puzzles Section under the heading Asorski's Original: Pawnless Society, Pin and counter-pin, etc. Thanks.
Ok Asorski, thanks.
I couldn't refute Ke2 etc. (Not that I am any authority!) It is a beautiful puzzle. I became so preoccupied trying to "get out of the situation", and what is needed is more of a waiting move, that opens a little space and a tempo, like a feint in fencing. Very nice.
Benko once stated that good compositions should only contain the pieces required for the mate.
