Answer To Online Chess Endgame Puzzle #46

The answer is for black to play K-b6. White has a choice to make a useless move with his queen or postpone checkmate for a while with K-c8. However, playing K-c8 drops the queen when black plays R-h8 and it’s an easy win from there.

Answer To Online Chess Endgame Puzzle #44

The answer is for white to play R-h1. Black is virtually forced to play Rxh1 or Bxe5. If black plays Rxh1 then white plays Bxd6 check, followed by Kxh1. If black plays Bxe5 then white plays Rxh6. Either way, it’s an easy win for white.

Answer To Online Chess Endgame Puzzle #38

The answer is for black to play B-d5. White is virtually forced to play Kxd5, then black queens his pawn on h1. If white queens his pawn on a8 he loses to K-f2 check.  Any other move by white instead of queening the pawn and black simply picks up the lone white pawn.
