How you're doing?, my name is
Gaston, I am from Argentina and I'm writing to compliment you for the site you
have, which I believe is very complete and straightforward and truly deserves a
10 guys, I congratulate you!!
p.s. could you provide me the solution to the
Anand-Gelfand game 8 (5/21/12)? :D
From now, thank you very much!!
You may have noticed that I am a beginner in the game of Chess.
This particular Chess
ending can be solved in several ways depending on the level of play
the computer program is set or the power of your computer. We cannot
provide you with an absolute solution since your machine can make
different moves of what our answer may show.
As an example, if we
send you a string of moves and your machine at any time moves
different, then the remaining set of winning moves becomes obsolete.
We can tell you for sure that the first right move is to take the Knight
with the Pawn and let the Queen escape. The key move for you to
follow is Bd3!! and then, win a few moves later.
The following is a
possible solution playing the program in the default level:
2. dxc6 Qxc6
3. Bd3! gxh5
4. Rg1+ Kf8
5. Qf6 d5
6. Qg7+ Ke7
7. Nxd5+ Kd8
8. Qg5+ f6
9. Nxf6 h6
10. Qh4 Qa4+
11. Kb1 Re5
12. Qf4 Qe8
13. Nxe8 Re7
14. Nf6 Re6
15. Rg8+ Ke7
16. Qc7+ Kxf6
17. Qg7# (or Rg6#)
