I spotted the main idea of this one pretty quickly, but had seen similar kinds of themes in the past.
8/K7/7P/3r3k/3p4/5pPp/8/1R4B1 w - - 0 1
While I was putting chess pieces on my board I saw the first move. But I had to struggle with V-2 a little. The puzzle is instructive and the idea is easy to remember.I haven't seen the idea earlier. I spent about 15 minutes on V-2.
1.Rb5! Kxh62.Rxd5 f23.Bxf2 h24.Rd8 Kg55.Rh8 h1=Q6.Rxh1It's a win for white.
1.Rb5 Rxb52.h7 Ra5+3.Kb7 Rb5+4.Kc7 Rc5+5.Kd7 Rd5+6.Ke7 Re5+7.Kf7 Rf5+8.Kg7 Rg5+9.Kf6 Rg6+10.Kf5 Rg5+11.Ke4 Kg612.h8=Q h213.Qxh2 d314.Kxd3 Rd5+15.Ke4 Rh516.Qf2 Rh117.Kxf3 Rh5It's a win for white.
You should also look into 10........Rh6 guarding the h8 square.
10.Kf5 Rh6?11.g4+ Kh412.Bf2#
Shorter, yes, but that mate is what makes the position won for white in all the longer lines.
There are some really nice zugzwang motifs inside this chess problem in both the main line and the variations.
White has a strong attack but is there a win?
You should be able to spot the tactic motif in 5-10 seconds.
This is from a real chess game of chess master Kucuksari
2018 Summer Chess Classic is a 10-player round-robin tournament taking place from 15-23 May at STL Chess Club
Precise tactic execution is required
This is a very famous chess position from 1869
I created this puzzle for the 2017 SPFNO
White has a strong attack but is it enough?
what if you do 1. Qb1?? and your opponent does ..c1=Q!! then white is screwed.
For me, this is Rambo Attack Tactic [ 1) R5e8+!! Kh7 2) Qxd2! R8xd2 3) Rexa8 ~ Black resigned 1-0 ]
