    The only bad thing is that 2. ..Rh6 regains the piece.

    white to play.
    Probably 1. Qa8+ but after 1...Kg7 I can not find anything
  12. 23 Jun '08 16:10
    maybe 1. Qa8+ kg7 2.kxf7 Kxf7 3.Qxa7+ ..... 4. Qxh7

    Two pawns and rook for a knight.

    what about 1.Qa8+ Kg7 2.Bxe5+ Qxe5 3.Qh8+ Kxh8 4.Nxf7+?

    but that would be queen and bishop for queen, rook and pawn. By a point system wouldn't you rather trade rook and two pawns for a knight?

    No.

    My variation leaves white a knight up in a simplified ending that's easily winning - the knight would simply round up all of black's pawns and leave white with a trivial task.

    How does white win two pawns anyway? I don't see it
