In this problem, move order is important.


This has to come first to protect g5 (it also threatens mate) Not 1...Rxc1 2.Qxg5+ (2.Rxc1 Qxc1+) 2... Kh8 3.Rxc1 and the win goes poof.


Pretty much forced. And now it is safe to simplify:

3.Rxc1 Rxc1+
4.Kf2 f6 and wins

Hope to see you all next week!


Note: that cryptic line of letters and numbers you see underneath each board diagram is a representation of the position in what is known as "Forsyth-Edwards Notation", or F.E.N. It's actually readable by humans. Most computer applications nowadays can read FEN, so those of you who may want to study the position, you can copy the line of FEN and paste into your chess app and it should automatically recreate the position on its display board. Or, Windows users can just "triple click" on it and the entire line will be highlighted so you can copy and paste it into your chess app.


So that about wraps it up for this week. Chess thread tips, suggestions, bribes, rumors, threats, and insults may be sent to my yahoo address: OregonMuse little-a-in-a-circle yahoo dott com.
