Here is a chess puzzle I have made . It needed a lot of thinking .

enter image description here

If you are white , how would you play in this position ? State your best moves !!

Please don't use Stockfish or Alphazero or any chess engine to answer this , if you definitely don't want to ruin the puzzle :) .


I would play

1. Rc8+ Then 1... Kxc8 2. Qd8# or 1... Ka7 2. Qb6+ Bxb6 3. axb6+ Kxb6 4. Be3#

  • $\begingroup$ Hey , it was quick , you are correct (I suppose you didn't use stockfish). $\endgroup$ – Anonymous Aug 19 '20 at 13:00
  • $\begingroup$ No, i didn't use any computer assistance :) I didn't even set up the position, which is why i didn't have the full solution at first. Nice problem, though :) $\endgroup$ – SteveV Aug 19 '20 at 14:02
