2013-01-22 20:18:11andrew1441444Can't black just play Qg3 at the end of this variation? 
2013-01-22 20:34:35chessisajedrez1703@Andrew144 - Yes! The position looks good but is a dead draw. Stockfish: 40 +0.00 30.Qg3+ Kg1 31.Qe3+ Qxe3 32.Rxe3 Kf2 33.d4 Bc4 34.Rc3 Bb5 35.Ra3 Ke2 36.Re3+ Kd2 37.Rg3 Bc6 38.Rb3 Ke2 39.Re3+ Kd2 40.Rc3 (206.31) 
2014-02-08 05:54:27DangerAl1182How is Qxd5 any worse than Qd4? It wins just as quickly with Qd8. 
2014-02-08 15:12:06Improchess2054@DangerAl In fact, Qd4 doesn't win;it's a draw after 1...Qg3+ 2.Kg1,Qe3+. You proposal 1.Qxd5 is losing to 1...Qg3+ 2.Kg1 (2.Kh1,Rc1++) ...Qe3+ 3.Kh1 (3.Kh2,Qf4+ is the same) ...Qc1+ 4.Kh2,Qf4+ 5.Kg1,Rc1 and mate. 
2017-05-15 20:15:40martinpascual1601I think that this problem is wrong, the black just play Qg3 
2017-05-19 03:45:46chessisajedrez1703@martinpascual, you haven't stated what wrong is. But Qd4 is whites best move. Should be a draw.
