A block-the-bishop move seems to work: 1. Bd4 and if black takes with the pawn, then Kd3 prevents it from advancing and opening the diagonal for the bishop to defend h8. White wins. If black takes with the bishop, the same Kd3 will again prevent the pawn from advancing as black will lose the bishop. A good puzzle.
No. If Bd4 BXB Kd4 then Ba1!First move should be Kd3I think that will win
You are right. I was wrong. Bd4 seems to win. If Ba1 as I suggested then Ke4
You glance at this position and you just know that the answer has to be 1.Bd4. The real problem is to figure out why.
Bd4!If BxB thenKd3 Ba1Ke4 winIf exB thenKd3 win
this one is easy:))) Bd4
Found it in seconds.But it is new to me and I love it.A classic!!Thanks!
I love this puzzle I have never thought of this position. Great Bishop sacrafice.
