    A game ends 5...b1xQb4. What were the previous moves?

    Been looking at this off and on for a few days now.

    Closest I can get is this.
    Anybody got it yet?

    I think I have it, although your post helped 🙂
    Waiting for confirmation from SG

    I'm not sure I quite understand the question correctly.

    That is the answer I got! Except I thought we weren't meant to post the answers here...

    This is probably a FAQ... isn't there a way to hide it ?
  7. 01 Mar '11 16:28
    You can edit the post and remove the board, I don't think the board itself can be hidden, but if you want to hide text then you can do:
    [HIDDEN] text here [/HIDDEN]
    like so



    Except not in capitals, I had to do that so it wouldn't be hidden 🙂

    Doh.. it gets worse.. I don't see an edit link on the post with the board

    Hmm, I'm sure there was an option to edit only a few days ago, but I can't see it any more. I guess this one will have to stay 🙂
    On the bright side, I think it is the right answer!

    Ha.

    So that is why. I was looking for a mate on the wrong square!

    At least I bumped and up the thread and got a solution out it.
    (going to try that ploy next time) 🙂

    I got a different answer. Less elegant, but it does the trick.

    1. d3 c5 2. Kd2 Qa5+ 3. b4 Qxa2 4. Kc3 Qxb1 5. h3 Qxb4# 0-1

    I don't think that qualifies.. since you need to take a queen on b4

    Yeah adje you have to take a Queen on b4.
    Try to pay attention.....

    (yesterday afternoon I was at work at my desk trying to take a Queen on b5.)

    Ahh, of course. That's why I found the answer so quickly, because it was the wrong one! 😳
