Took me about 10 seconds to spot the idea of Qd1 followed by Qh5#. I don't see a defense- there is no way to open a hole for the black to escape to, there are no checks black can use to harass white. Black gets mated on move 2 unless he takes at e5, but white just recaptures closing f6 off once again.
1Qd1 rxp 2pxr 3mate is unavodable
1. Qd1l any move by black mate by Qh5
1.Qd1 - 2.Qxh5++
As soon as I saw the position,I was attracted to the move 1.e6. If black helps by 1... Rxe6 2.Qg5#.but what if black plays 1... Qxe6?Next attempt 1.Qb6+ was silly.1.Rf8 yielded nothing.I suudenly spotted 1.Qd1.Over.
1.Qd1 Rxe5 2.fxe5 and after any move by Black 3.Qxh5++.
There's no adequate escape after1. Qd1 which threatens Qxh5#1. .. Rxe52. fxe5No checks, no chance to capture e5, nor create an escape for the black King.If I haven't missed anything it would be quite boring, I wanted some more battle!
Seeing that Black has presently no checks, so that a non-checking first move might work for White, leads to the solution immediately:1. Qd1! Threatens 2.Qxh5#; since Black cannot move the king nor protect square h5, he must try to free a safe square for the king:1. ... Rxe5 so the king can go to f6, but:2. fxe5 renews the threat and3. Qxh5# is unstoppable.
Qd1 : Black can't stop mate on h5 (Qxh5)
1.Qd1!!!>A-1....Rxe5.2.fxe!.any move.3.Qxh5#>B-1....any other move.2.Qxh5#Harry
Dear pht,I have placed some set of moves in May 22 blog.Please see.
The black king is immobile, and so are the pawns around the king. Qh5# would be nice indeed, and there is no move against it:1. Qd1! a1=Q or any2. Qxh5# (or also Qg1# in some lines)
1. Qd1 threatening Qxh5#, Rxe5 forced2. fxRe5 renewing mate threat, f43. QxNc2+ Qf54. QxQff5+ KxQf55. Ra8 with a winning endgame for W
Nakamura would play Qd1
I was having a second look at the problem.For a moment I felt black could have a defence in 1.Qd1 Rxe5 to make an escape square at f6 ;but no,2.fxe5 retightens the noose.
1.Rxh5,Kxh5 2.Qh8+ if Kg6 3.H5#1.Rxh5,Kxh5 2.Qh8+ if Kg4 3.Cant find the solution
