A study of Korteling... White to move, what do you think ? :)

Beautiful stalemate! :)

i don't understand! what's supposed to happen? i fail to see how white can avoid defeat!
Thibault de Vassal (2006-12-03 14:59:07)
It is a draw
There's a way for White to draw !
Ilmars Cirulis (2006-12-03 14:59:42)
What about 1.Rd8+ Kg7 2.Rd3 Bc6+ 3.Kb4 g2 4.Rg3+ Kf6 5.Kc5 Bb7 6.Kd4 h5 7.Ke3 h4 8.Kf2 hxg3 9.Kg1 with draw?
Ilmars Cirulis (2006-12-03 15:09:59)
We move at first 1.Rd8+, not 1.Rd3 - because we get very useful tempo with Rg3+.
