Chess Puzzles

Here is the basic step to adding a chess puzzle to this thread without uploading the image from somewhere. There is nothing wrong with uploading an image except that once cha upgrades his site, we will loose all images ... Anyways your choice ... the bravest of us all can post using this approach ... atleast that way we can solve puzzles visually without the need to upload images of the board everytime ...

(1) You may want to learn basic FEN notation from here.

(2) Get any opening or position you want to discuss and manually place the pieces on the board using the following tool on http://chessup.net/

(3) Hit create image after manually placing the pieces

(4) You will get the FEN code like this: 8/8/7k/p4R1P/P2prp2/1Pp2K2/2P5/8

(5) Using a chessviewer available online, place the FEN code in the blue position. Enclose it in the IMG tag (remove the word tag, of course)

[IMG tag]http://www.chessforums.org/viewer.php?8/8/7k/p4R1P/P2prp2/1Pp2K2/2P5/8[/IMG tag]

(6) Mention whose turn it is to play ... (example, white to play and win or just white to play)

(7) Level of difficulty, if any ...

(8) Mention the source of the site or the book or the game, from where you got the puzzle (avoid copyright issues )

(9) Also number the puzzle ... at least anyone can know what we are solving or discussing ...

(10) Include the FEN code for the starting positions of the pieces on the board using the code tag
Code:
 8/8/7k/p4R1P/P2prp2/1Pp2K2/2P5/8
, that way anyone can load it up on http://chessup.net/ and suggest their variations using the same steps mentioned above ...

(1) ..., Re3+, which gives



White's response is to safely get his king out of check, there are a number of possibilities ...

Dhurs, usually white is at the bottom and marches its troops up and the reverse is for black ...

BTW, the FEN code for this puzzle is

Code:
 8/8/7k/p4R1P/P2prp2/1Pp2K2/2P5/8
You can use this to load up positions in http://chessup.net/ and for every variation you can get the FEN code and paste the board position here ...

The white king will kill the black pawn...what did you gain? (there might be a benefit down the road but only if white takes the bait)

In every chess puzzle, when they say it is somebody's turn to play ... and that also means that the end goal is for the same color to win or atleast force a draw ... For example, here black is to play ... so the goal is for black to play in such a way that it wins ...

look at a,b,c,d(file) or 1,2,3,4(rank) .Left to right a-b-c-d means white is at bottom or 1-2-3-4 from bottom to top means white is at bottom.

Re: Chess Puzzles

How about these set of moves:

(1) ..., d3

(2) cxd3, c2 (this is a good move by white, see board below)



OR

(2) KxRe4, dxc2 (this would be a pretty foolish move by white, see board below)

Yes that is the move, but can white recover if it does the following:

(1) ..., d3
(2) cxd3, c2
(3) Rc5, ...
