I have no problem giving lots of exclams there.

I see no reason why e4 should get more than the other moves tho.

You mean 2. ... g2+? That came up in my computer analysis too. Looks interesting... playing through a few lines it's looking kind of like black might have some drawing chances, according to the computer. I'm not good enough to contribute any real analysis, but it would be interesting to hear what good human analysis says.

Bad human and bot analysis can't find white win yet vs 2...g2 3.Kd2 Qd7 4.e8Q Qe8 5.Qh2 Qg6 Would hate to try to say 4vs3 Q ending after 6.Qg1 Qh6 7.Ne3 Qd6 8.Kc1 and etc is win....

Strong players all seem to land on 2...Qh7 pretty quick so wait for them I guess.

My analysis so far showing that 1... Nf4+ is indeed forced, that the YKW variation is losing for black, and that 2... g2 gives black a drawing chance.

Re: *** Chess Low Content Thread ***

cool. i really think g2 is also a very human move. Qh7 would be chosen by many strong players but the discovered check is tempting

Imho, the overcomplication lacks beauty.

I like complications, but here, therer are just too many lines, and brain asplode

Re: *** Chess Low Content Thread ***

I would think White is winning in that position, with the extra passed pawn and good prospects to advance it while keeping his king away from checks.

I don't think a study having a complicated sideline detracts from the beauty, but if this position is forced, that is simply a dual.

Re: *** Chess Low Content Thread ***

My understanding, tho third hand is that this is a Russian circa 1980, and a prizewinner. Obv no bots back then, but 2...g2 etc. is so obv.

Seems more likely that it is not cooked, but that endgame is beyond me, (would prolly be torture to be black tho) and maybe there is something so obscene before that, that the computers don't see it, tho I have no clue what that might be.

Will update, if I find the original source or more analysis etc....

Meh the solution just claims Qg1 is a technical win for white.

Can be found here. Just search the page for the composer Dorogov.

Re: *** Chess Low Content Thread ***

oh wait, this is an alternative for Black, not for White. so it's fine. It's like you wouldn't think less of the Saavedra study because Black has the option to play on for 20 moves with R against Q instead of entering the main line.
