Ravi, Try harder, you are not there yet!

Yes Ravi Yochanan is correct, you are headed towards a stalemate.

tobi's picture

1.Bc6+ Kd6 2.Rd4+ Ke5 3.Re4+ and Rxe3 and Rxe2 1-0
after 1. ... Kc8 2. Rf8#

Yochanan Afek's picture

Tobi, still not good enough. harder!Think stalemate!

nr 11:
1. Kf3 Le2+ 2. Kg3 Ke1 [and not 2... Ld4]
3. Kg2 Lf1+ 4. Kf3 Le2+ 5. Kg2 etc. draw
A dual to the solution?

fogged's picture

1.Bc6+ Kd6 2.Rd4+ Ke6 3.Re4+ Kd6 4.Rxe3 e1Q 5.Rxe1
Stalemate, this is NOT the solution.

1. Bf5+ Kd8 (or Kd6) 2. Rd4+ Ke7 3. Re4+ Kd8 4. Bd7! e1=Q 5. Bb5
and white should win as black can do anything against 6. Re8 mat

tobi's picture

It?Ǭ¥s right. It is only draw, if 1.Bc6+. It isn?Ǭ¥t solution.

So the stalemate is
1.Bf5+ Ke8
2.Re4+ Kd8
3.Rxe3 stalemate

so probably White has to play
2.Bd7+ Kxd7
3.Rd4+ Kex
4.Re4+ and take the pawns

Dimitar Panayotov's picture

and if Black plays
2... Ke7
3.Re4+ Kd8
4.Bd7 e1Q
5.Bb5 with mate on e8
