I feel like my knights are going around in circles. It\'s a lot more tougher than it looks. I guess I need more time if I\'m serious about solving this puzzle. Hmm.....-

123Russian  kai20112014-06-18 08:59:26
Some of the horses carousel! A few years ago on our Russian website was published several tasks on 5 moves mate. Knight and king white against king and pawn black. A difficult task, but there was visible end position, here is nothing!-

124Cyprus  kali-mera2014-06-19 01:23:11
OK! I will help you a bit:
After: 1.Nc2? Kc1 2.Nd3+! Kd1! (No: 2...Kb1? 3.Nxa3x) 3.Nxa1 - this is a draw!
Let us imagine that there is no pawn on a3:

Then after: 1.Nc2? Kc1 2.Nd3+! Kd1 (No: 2...Kb1? 3.Na3x) 3.Nxa1 - this is only a draw!
But after: 1.Nfd1! Kc1 2.Nb2! Kb1! (2...Rb1? 3.Nd3x) 3.Nec4! (or: 3.Nf1!) Kc1 4.Nd2! Rb1 5.Nb3x (1:0) Conclusion: Let us first we destroy the pawn on a3!
1.Nd5!! Kc1 2.Nc5!! Kb1 (2...Rb1? 3.Nd3x) 3.Kd2!! Kb2 And now: 4.Nc4+!! Kb2 5.Nxa3+!! Kb2 6.Nc4+ Kb1

1.Nd5!! Kc1 2.Nc5!!
I can\'t do these moves

126Cyprus  kali-mera2014-06-20 08:23:39
This endgame has been properly determined by Kai2011 before two days!
I\'ll wait until tomorrow and I will give the answer here.

More than that! Not here(after11. ...Qxa1 or 11. ...Qa5) the forced loss is neither white nor black. The choice of a course depends on the mood of the white and black. Sometimes I like non-standard balance of power! As the white Queen, of course, is caught after
11. ...Qxa1 12. Qc2! but two rooks are enough!

131Cyprus  kali-mera2014-06-26 05:59:29
11.Nb1?! - This is no the correct move.
11.Nb2 is better move.After: 11...Be7 (or: 11...Ba3 12.cxd5! Bxb2 (or: 12...cxd5 (or: 12...exd5)13.Nb1! , or: 12...Nxd5 13.Ndc4!)13.Bxb2 Qxb2 14.Nc4! Qc3 15.dxe6! fxe6 16.a3! b5 17.Rc1 Qxc1 18.Qxc1 bxc4 19.Qxc4 Kf7 20.f4)12.Nb1 Qa5 13.Bd2 Qc7 14.Nc3 O-O 15.Nd3 the game is equivalent.
