Re: Chess Puzzles

hehe, nice one , i dint saw that move (mentioned in the solution)

but, why would the black resign? it still has 2 pawns and a rook, i think one can hold to draw in a king-queen and king-rook state ? just dont let the black king move, and keep your king's support (white) to rook ( whats 'joor pe rakhana' called in English) ?

PS : Ah.. i forgot abt the a5 pawn, so that will make another queen.... yeah .. right.. good puzzle

Check this position:



Now in this position, white rook can take the pawn at a5, it cannot have the king take the pawn at f4. So if it's Rxa5 by white, I see the following:



Here the queen can create havoc by taking a pawn and also checking the white king ... White is having only one pawn at h5 that needs the rook to be pinned if it has to survive, if not the rook, the king, which will eventually need to be moved around to survive checks from black queen ... I can see that white stands to lose a lot because of queen's mobility ...

is it White's move ?

if yes, then i think he should not resign, play rf5 and capture the pawn sooner or later, i dont think with 3 pawn and a rook, white is in any kind of losing position.

if i am not wrong, in a king-rook and king-queen (left at end) position, if we stick to basics , then we can force a draw.

With three pawns, i wont write off white chances for sure.

Edit : add - If its black's move, then it would be a different story as it can still save its f4 pawn, and promote it to queen.

Khaski, this is what white has decide eventually:

Rf5, Qf1+



White needs to move its king out of check, it can only move to e4 or g4. Tell me, which one can avoid long term danger to check

Re: Chess Puzzles

I think white will move its king to e4 because that way the pawn at d3 protects the king and the king protects (or is pinned to protect) pawn at d3 and the rook at f5 ...

Re: Chess Puzzle #2

White can take the bishop at e4.Black cannot take the bishop due to threat of Bc4 which will force black to lose queen.
1.Rxe4 dxe4 2.Bc4 Qxc4 3.Qxc4.
So rook is immune after 1.Rxe4 .That will equalize the material for white.

The most likely moves are 1. Rxe4 Kh8 2. Rae1 Qf8 (not 2...dxe4 3.Qxf7 losing the queen).

Naps that just evens the material ... how can white win with a series of forced moves like the ones you have mentioned here ...
