Save the Game

In this week’s problem, Black has to stop the White pawns from reaching the first rank and becoming Queens.

You might think it is quite easy, but the problem is more difficult than it looks.

How does Black save the game?

The solution to last Monday’s problem is that White wins with 1. Ra4! Ra8 2. Kh6.

About Steven Carr

I am 57 years old, and I am trying to improve my standard of play. From 1998 to 2012, I had a break from chess, playing very few games in that period. I now play more competitive chess and I currently have a English grading of 184. I hope to get a grading of over 200 one day. I normally play in the Merseyside League and play Board 1 for Wallasey.
