    I have a few ideas.

    1) Slip some money under the table
    2) Slide a captured bQ onto a border square and hope White doesn't notice
    3) Hire hot chick to distract opponent
    4) Two words: Malt liquor

    Other than BigdoggProblem's ideas, three moves come to mind: 1. ...Rc6?! 1. ...Rc5?! and 1. ...resigns!! (white has a mate in 29 moves: 1... Kf8 2. Nc2 Rb8 3. Kf1 Ke7 4. Ne3 Rd8 5. Rxb5 Rxd4 6. Rb4 Kd6 7. Rxc4 Rxc4 8. Nxc4+ Kc5 9. Nb2 Kd4 10. Nxa4 Kxe4 11. Nc5+ Kd4 12. Nd7 f5 13. a4 Kc4 14. h4 h5 15. Nf6 Kb4 16. Nxh5 Kxa4 17. Nf6 Kb4 18. h5 Kc5 19. h6 Kc4 20. h7 Kd3 21. h8=Q Kc4 22. Qc8+ Kb4 23. Ke2 e5 24. Nd5+ Kb5 25. Kd3 e4+
    26. Kd4 Ka4 27. Qc4+ Ka3 28. Kc3 f4 29. Qa6#
    {White mates} 1-0)

    But then black wouldn't be the one to win (unless he's talking about the person who's playing black winning). Another good idea is to blackmail the white player ie If you don't resign I'll set ur house on fire.

    Is the position legal?

    I would think so, unless it's a trick problem...

    I was just joking...

    Maybe it's not "legal" because he's trying to win a game (on RHP or other site) with the help of fellow forummers.

    Or maybe I'm just being unfair...
