This is the hardest Study (mate in 3) that I ever tried to solve.. After checking twice all possible white moves.. I give up.
Samuel Loyd (January 30, 1841 – April 10, 1911) born in Philadelphia and raised in New York, was an American chess player, chess composer, puzzle author, and recreational mathematician.
If You don't know this famous Study try to solve without Engine :-)
Maybe I've missed something but I think there is a quicker mate in 2.
Thx, now if you saw previous idea..
Try this one and remember trying to find the most ridiculous move
Absolutely amazing puzzle. I did not see this mate at all. All because of a series of checks. Brilliant djano. Thanks for sharing!
Qg1 just runs into Rf2#
i've had this position twice in my own games already. nice study. thx Dawid
The first move I saw was Ke2 and dismissed it because of the pawn promotion. The second K move is even more fantabulous
...Qg1+ then Rf2#
What about Qg1+? Am I crazy, or does that save the day?
Is clever mate. Instinct is not to let pawn Queen! I instruct my boys in Kharkov (Chess School) always to do what seems crazy move. Here, let pawn Queen = crazy move! Never look for sensible move.
Yeah I had no chance on this one :)
Endgame Study with nice idea
by djano 4 years ago
Solving: Proof Game (fantastic!) after 12 moves
Puzzle tricky Pawn Endgame, win or draw?
Garry Kasparov described this game as "Rubinstein's truly 'immortal' game"
Brilliant Study but hard to solve!
