My 7 year old gives the following analysis:Nd6!1) ...exd6, cxd6 simply loses the Rook2) ...Be5, Ne8+ Kh7, Nxc7 Bxc7, Rd7 and White gets a couple of pawns as well as the exchangeI would add for completeness the less important line, 3) ...Kh7, Ne8 transposing to line 2
1. Nd6 looks pretty strong, threatening Nd8+. The black Rook is in a trap if the Knight is taken.
This one is in "Chess Tactics for Champions" by Susan Polgar.Because this book is falling apart from me going through it I knew this one in an instant.
1nd6 & 2ne8
1. Nd6! (threatens Ne8+)The black rook has nowhere to go ...1. ... exd62. cxd6
Nd6 wins the rook
Can't see an immediate forced win but Nd6 forces Kh7 then f pawn is en pris but so is white's a pawn. So maybe Nc4 and after Bf6 f4 but no win. But 1.Nd6 seems the only tactical try!
Difficult one!Nd6 wins...
Nd6 appears to win the black rook?
Of course! Nd6 as Ne8 wins the rook whether it's check or not. And if exd6 then cxd also wins the rook
1. Nd6!! looks tempting. :-) White threatens 2. Ne8 or 2. Ne8+, and Black rook can't be saved.So... what remains?1. ... exd6 2. cxd6 Bf6 3. dxc7 Bxd8 4. cxd8Q 1-0
Yesterday I had analyzed the problem but had no time to post. 1.Nd6 exd62.cxd6Hapless black R has no position to go but black may contain the loss by2.... Rd73.Rxd7 Bxa3The point is white can not hold on to passed P on d file but has to seek compensation elsewhere.4.Rxb7 Bxd65.Rxa7
