For those with a rating greater than 1900  The new lesson:  A queen against a knight, a bishop and three pawns!  8/2p1q3/p3P3/2P4p/1PBP2kP/2N3P1/7K/8 w
A mathematical equality! (A queen against a knight, a bishop and three pawns.) However, a chess players with have a rating greater than 1900 \'\'immediately will smell\'\' that the black king is in danger. However, the open position of the white king assumes the draw the most likely outcome of this game. Excellent moves for white look: 1.Bf1 , 1.Ne4 , 1.Ne2 and especially: 1.Bxa6 and the draw seems that is not far!Just as an example: 1.Bf1 Qf6 (or: 1...Kf5 2.Nd5!) 2.Bh3+ Kf3 3.Bg2+ Kg4 4.Bh3+ = Draw! But white to move and will win, as if by magic: 1.Be2 +! Kf5 2.Nd5!! (Oooo! What a scary number!) 8/2p1q3/p3P3/2PN1k1p/1P1P3P/6P1/4B2K/8 b
2...Qxe6 (or: 2...Qe8 3.Bd3+! and the whites will take the blacks queen , or: 3.e7!  for other setbacks of the black queen and the whites will win easily) 3.Bd3+ Kg4 4.Be4!! 8/2p5/p3q3/2PN3p/1P1PB1kP/6P1/7K/8 b
(This is the second surprise! No: 4...Qxe4 5.Nf6+ = 1:0 , now the whites threatens with: 5.Ne3x) 4...Qh6 5.Nf4! 8/2p5/p6q/2P4p/1P1PBNkP/6P1/7K/8 b
(Now the whites threatens with: 6.Kg2/ 7.Nd3/ and 8.Nf2x) 5...Qf6 6.Nd3!! 8/2p5/p4q2/2P4p/1P1PB1kP/3N2P1/7K/8 b
(Splendid! The horse not only scared of mate (from e5, or from f2), but also protects the white officer and prevent the black queen to give a chess (from f2)!) 6...Qxd4 7.c6!!! 8/2p5/p1P5/7p/1P1qB1kP/3N2P1/7K/8 b
(\"Thunderbolt!\'\'Now the black queen and black king can not move!) 7...a5 (if: 7...Qxe4 8.Nf2+ = 1:0) 8.b5! 8/2p5/2P5/pP5p/3qB1kP/3N2P1/7K/8 b
(The latest wrinkle! No: 8.bxa5? Qb2+! 8/2p5/2P5/P6p/4B1kP/3N2P1/1q5K/8 w
and draw with perpetual check or stalemate: (after: 9.Nxb2)!) and stay a little longer: 8...a4 9.b6 a3 10.bxc7 8/2P5/2P5/7p/3qB1kP/p2N2P1/7K/8 b
10...Qxe4 (or: 10...a2 11.c8=Q+ with a mate.) 11.Nf2+ Kf3! 12.Nxe4 a2! 8/2P5/2P5/7p/4N2P/5kP1/p6K/8 w
13.Nd2+! 8/2P5/2P5/7p/7P/5kP1/p2N3K/8 b
and 14.Nb3 = 1:0. (Victory!)

It looks like magic and I need some time to realize this position!    
10 kai2011  20140731 17:10:27  
Georgi! These amazing positions are from actually played games or these are chess problems? In the first case, hats off to the players, in the second  to the author! My move 1. Ra5+ If 1. ...b5 2. Rb5+ 3.c4+ and so on... But after 1. ...Ke4 I say... The Magic begins! Very useful lesson, my friend!    
11 kalimera  20140801 10:49:39  
Congratulations my friend kai2011! I see that you decided this correctly! I will give diagrams in this part of the decision: 1.Ra5+! 8/pp1q4/3p4/R2k4/8/2P4P/PP1K4/3B4 b
after: 1...b5 2.Rxb5+!! 8/p2q4/3p4/1R1k4/8/2P4P/PP1K4/3B4 b
if: 2...Qxb5 3.c4+! 8/p7/3p4/1q1k4/2P5/7P/PP1K4/3B4 b
if: 3...Kxc4 4.Be2+ 8/p7/3p4/1q6/2k5/7P/PP1KB3/8 b
and after: 4...Kc5 (or: 4...Kb4) 5.Bxb5 Kxb5 6.h4 = 1:0 8/p7/3p4/1k6/7P/8/PP1K4/8 b
and if: 3...Qxc4 4.Bb3 8/p7/3p4/3k4/2q5/1B5P/PP1K4/8 b
and after: 4...Qxb3 5.axb3 Ke4 8/p7/3p4/8/4k3/1P5P/1P1K4/8 w
and now: 6.h4! = 1:0 (but no: 6.Kc3? Ke3!) Up here is very good!  After: 1.Ra5+! b5 2.Rxb5+!! ÐšÐµ6 is easy: 3.Bg4+ =1:0 8/p2q4/3pk3/1R6/6B1/2P4P/PP1K4/8 b
and then: 1.Ra5+! b5 2.Rxb5+!! Ðšc4 is easy: 3.Be2x =1:0 8/p2q4/3p4/1R6/2k5/2P4P/PP1KB3/8 b
But what will happen after: 1.Ra5+! b5 2.Rxb5+!! Kc6 8/p2q4/2kp4/1R6/8/2P4P/PP1K4/3B4 w
or what will happen after: 1.Ra5+! b5 2.Rxb5+!! Ke4 8/p2q4/3p4/1R6/4k3/2P4P/PP1K4/3B4 w
And finally, what will happen after: 1.Ra5+! Ke4 8/pp1q4/3p4/R7/4k3/2P4P/PP1K4/3B4 w
(Of course, much easier is after: no: 1.Ra5+! Kc4 2.Be2x = 1:0, 8/pp1q4/3p4/R7/2k5/2P4P/PP1KB3/8 b
or no: 1.Ra5+! Kc6 2.Ba4+ = 1:0, 8/pp1q4/2kp4/R7/B7/2P4P/PP1K4/8 b
or no: 1.Ra5+! Ke6 2.Bg4+ = 1:0, 8/pp1q4/3pk3/R7/6B1/2P4P/PP1K4/8 b
or no (of course): 1.Ra5+! Qb5 8/pp6/3p4/Rq1k4/8/2P4P/PP1K4/3B4 w
and: 2.Rxb5+ = 1:0 ) Good luck!    
12 kai2011  20140801 11:24:49  
Georgi! I am a great lazy, so didn\'t write the solution in detail. Honestly, I know what will happen after Your proposed moves! May be the other players will try to find a win?    
13 kalimera  20140801 12:55:26  
Of course,my friend (kai2011)! I knew it! Good luck and for the other players ! How would you play forward? I will expect your answers and your opinions in \'\'For those with a rating greater than 1900\'\' (every Wednesday)  our course(2). Georgi    
14 kalimera  20140806 10:35:17  
This is the answer from this task:  Note:  This task was correctly decided by kai2011. This is an extension of the answer from our task:  And so: 1) What will happen after: 1.Ra5+! Ke4 8/pp1q4/3p4/R7/4k3/2P4P/PP1K4/3B4 w
2.Rf5!! = The magic! 8/pp1q4/3p4/5R2/4k3/2P4P/PP1K4/3B4 b
White threatens to: 3.Bc2x (1:0), after: 2...Qxf5 8/pp6/3p4/5q2/4k3/2P4P/PP1K4/3B4 w
3.Bc2+ = (1:0) 8/pp6/3p4/5q2/4k3/2P4P/PPBK4/8 b
and after: 2...Kxf5 8/pp1q4/3p4/5k2/8/2P4P/PP1K4/3B4 w
3.Bg4+ = (1:0) 8/pp1q4/3p4/5k2/6B1/2P4P/PP1K4/8 b
2) What will happen after: 1.Ra5+! b5 2.Rxb5+!! Ke4 8/p2q4/3p4/1R6/4k3/2P4P/PP1K4/3B4 w
3.Rf5 !! = The magic! 8/p2q4/3p4/5R2/4k3/2P4P/PP1K4/3B4 b
White threatens to: 4.Bc2x (1:0), after: 3...Qxf5 8/p7/3p4/5q2/4k3/2P4P/PP1K4/3B4 w
4.Bc2+ = (1:0) 8/p7/3p4/5q2/4k3/2P4P/PPBK4/8 b
and after: 3...Kxf5 8/p2q4/3p4/5k2/8/2P4P/PP1K4/3B4 w
4.Bg4+ = (1:0) 8/p2q4/3p4/5k2/6B1/2P4P/PP1K4/8 b
   
15 kalimera  20140806 11:05:13  
3) And for the finally, what will happen after: 1.Ra5+! b5 2.Rxb5+!! Kc6 8/p2q4/2kp4/1R6/8/2P4P/PP1K4/3B4 w
3.Ba4!! = The magic! 8/p2q4/2kp4/1R6/B7/2P4P/PP1K4/8 b
White threatens to: 4.Rb3+ = (1:0), after: 3...Qc7!  This is the best , of the other retreats of black lady it the whites easily captured her! 8/p1q5/2kp4/1R6/B7/2P4P/PP1K4/8 w
4.b4!! = The magic! A quiet move with incredible power! = (1:0) 8/p1q5/2kp4/1R6/BP6/2P4P/P2K4/8 b
And now the blacks resing! Of the other retreats of black lady it the whites easily captured her! If: 4...Kd7 8/p1qk4/3p4/1R6/BP6/2P4P/P2K4/8 w
5.Rc5+ = (1:0) 8/p1qk4/3p4/2R5/BP6/2P4P/P2K4/8 b
(or: 5.Rb7+) = (1:0) 8/pRqk4/3p4/8/BP6/2P4P/P2K4/8 b
Good luck! Tomorrow expect your new lesson and your new task!

At first glance  it seems impossible! But it is not! Well, it is true that the whites will lose one white figure! But... But the whites do not move:  1.Bd3? 8/b1p3p1/1k6/4N3/8/3B4/8/N5K1 b
1...Kb7+! 2.Kg2 Bd4! 3.Nb3! Bxe5 4.Na5+ Kb6!! 5.Nc4+ Kc5! 6.Nxe5 Kd4! = Draw! (1/2 : 1/2) And no:  1.Bf1? 8/b1p3p1/1k6/4N3/8/8/8/N4BK1 b

Bxe5 4.Na5+ Ka8!! 5.Nc6 Bd6 6.Ba6! g5!! 7.Kg2 g4! 8.Kf2 Bf4! 9.Ke2 g3! 10.Kf3 Bd6 = Draw! (1/2 : 1/2) The only correct move is:  1.Be2!! 8/b1p3p1/1k6/4N3/8/8/4B3/N5K1 b
1...Kb7+! 2.Kg2!! (The only correct move! Otherwise, the black pawn (g7) is progressing rapidly!) 8/bkp3p1/8/4N3/8/8/4B1K1/N7 b

6...g5! (or; 6...g6  does not change) k7/2p5/B1Nb4/6p1/8/8/6K1/8 w

Very instructive endgame! Remember it!   Here\'s your newest task:  One officer is stronger than one rook in the endgame? And here we have a very instructive endgame! Remember it!  8/1Kp5/5pP1/1P6/8/8/8/2B1kr2 w

17 kai2011  20140807 08:30:24  
If straight 1.g7 then 1. ...Rg1! 1.Bg5 in the hope of 1. ...fxg5??? But black has at least a draw after all of that 1. ...Rg1!! It means white should play 1.Be3!!! And now after 1. ...Rf3 2.Bg5!!! (just now!) and black unable to play 2. ...Rg3 because of 3.Bh4 and win! Beautiful task, Georgi!    
18 dsuttles  20140807 13:57:56  
Certainly is. Amazing stuff.    
19 dsuttles  20140807 14:47:50

Very very good my friends (kai2011 and dsuttles)! I will give the decision for this task in diagrams:  1.Be3! (Now no: 1...Rg1? 2.Bxg1 = (1:0)) 8/1Kp5/5pP1/1P6/8/4B3/8/4kr2 b
1...Rf3 (Otherwise, the white pawn \'\' g \'\' becomes queen.) 8/1Kp5/5pP1/1P6/8/4Br2/8/4k3 w
3.Bg5!! 8/1Kp5/5pP1/1P4B1/8/5r2/8/4k3 b

Note: Most preferably: 6...c5 7.b3 b6 (or: 7...Be7) Note: 9...Bb4+ Can be played (The blacks want to swap to alleviate their situation), but greater is: 9...Qc7 (or: 9...f5). You can play more and: 9...e5 / 9...c5 / 9...OO/ / 9...Nf6 / 9...h6/. Note: No: 18...Bb7? r2r4/pbq2pkp/1pp1pnp1/6N1/2PP4/5Q2/PPB2PPP/3RR1K1 w

My friends, in this game (our the task (1)) there have played two very strong players. Of course, that the blacks (with Rating: 2661) rely on variants of windmill , but with the whites plays former world champion (with Rating: 2813) and it is unlikely he would not have predicted this. Think again! Yes, it is not easy ...but this course is for the best players in it. Good luck!

My friends, if I have not you explained everything correctly and accurately?! Here you not must to look how and who will win, but simply and only what (who move) now you will play with the white pieces. Important is the idea! Good luck!
