Endgame puzzle 1

White to play and win. Black is one move from equality, so immediate action is required. Many moves can be found by the method of elimination. White uses domination as well.

 Give ur solution in comment or shout box.

1. Kd3 is a key move for white to win this game, other than that is draw. White need to stop black bishop from control the a-h diagonal. In other word need to capture the Bishop or stop pawn f6 from moving.Black can respond with  1 .. Ba1, Ba2 or Kb4. White still need a solid move.

If 1.. Ba1 2. Ne5!  ...
           ..Bxe5 3.Ke4  ...  4.Kf5..
           ... fxe5 3.Ke4
           ... f5 3.Nxc6+ Kb5 4.Nd4 Kc5 5.Nb3+ (folk king and bishop)
If 1.. Bb2 2.Ne5! f5 3.Nc4

.If 1.. Kb4 2.Ne5 f5 3.Nxc6 Kb3 4.Nd4 ++-

  1. Looks like I am the first one to find the exact answer. 1.Kd3! Ba1(probably best!. ..Be5?? Nxe5 and win..) 2 Ne5!!!(this is the best move on this position..if 2...fxe5 white ca reply with Ke4! blockading the pawn, thus the Black Bishop's view is permanently blocked..) 2...Bxe5(Forced.) 3Ke4 threatening the Black Bishop, the bishop is force to move 3...Ba1(Forced. other move lead to the same result) 4 Kf5 and win..(Black resign since he cannot stop the advance of White pawn on h6.. Note that if White play 1 h7?? loses the game because Black can equalise immediately with f5! and white loses. So the move are. 1Ke3!! Ba1 2Nd5!! Bxd5 3Kd4 Ba1 4Kf5 1-0

  2. ada hadiah tak bagi yang boleh jawab soalan ni??

  3. Tak ada hadiah. Tapi boleh diberi pujian kerana org pertama yg memberi jawapan.
    Solution yg atas betul , line bawah sekali
    (1Ke3!! Ba1 2Nd5!! Bxd5 3Kd4 Ba1 4Kf5) agak mengelirukan..kerana N tak dapat bergerak ke Nd5.
