Chess Puzzle For Revealing Brilliant Minds

Hello chess lovers. I have another
amazing chess puzzle for you but this time again I’m not going to show you the
answer. White to move and draw the game. Those who will solve please send a
private message to my Facebook page, I will leave the link in the description.
By the way don’t forget to ask for help from your chess engine it just evaluates
the position as winning for black. Let’s see how many brilliant minds can be
found in the Internet. I’m not going to disable comments section, it’s always
interesting to read your discussions but, of course, correct answers will be
deleted. Let others think as well. Just rely on your talent and stand beyond the
narrow-minded chess engines. Good Luck


  1. why are you using secure team 10 theme song… really inappropriate, unfitting and just so stupid to use over chess.. come on man wth.

  2. Again, I feel that your best videos are the puzzles you post, especially those that an engine can not solve. I just started playing chess again last December after a 20 year hiatus, and I was surprised and amazed at how far engines had come since Kasparov vs. Deep Blue. I instantly became very curious about how they work and what- if any – weakness do they have. I think that the puzzles you choose to present highlight not only those weaknesses, but also in an indirect way show us the beauty of the human imagination. I know I have complimented you several times on your videos and your humility, but I just wanted to say clearly: these videos that you make showing puzzles or situations which the engine can not solve are a tremendous asset to the chess community. I love your game analysis videos (everyone loves, "Let's go back…"), although my critique of them, I believe still stands, that you need to slow down and take your time more with them. But your puzzle videos, specifically the engine stumpers, are very important. Even ones where the engine does eventually get the answer after 20-30 minutes, or the ones where one engine solves the problem immediately and another does not, I think that these are not only very helpful to the players, but also could be a tremendous asset to the programmers, who may be able to use them to improve their engines so that no human will ever have a chance against them.

    Sorry for the wall of text. Thanks Suren.

  3. so you trap the rook on its side so it cant take. by moving the pawns with the king protecting. With the bishop protecting the left?

  4. I'm new to chess, so this is probably wrong, but I think the solution involves bxd5, sacrificing the bishop and opening up the c file. However, the pawn is still open to attacks from the rook and the king, so before that, the king must be moved to that area to protect the pawn. still, it is not enough to fully protect the pawn, because it is being attacked twice but defended only once. So, white's g pawn could be pushed up, which forces the black rook to make a decision as to which pawn it should attack, which should allow one pawn to be promoted.

  5. Bxd5!…because blacks rook is coming to h2. if bishop don't take on d5 and let's say Kd5, then Rh2/Bf1 and Rxf2,forcing white to move bishop again to another square without compensation. besides,whites Bxd5/cxd5, e4 is ideal…opening up c-file and stopping blacks rook from coming to h3 and swallowing up pawns right away,because Rh3/g4!

  6. white also has…Bxd5/cxd5, Kc2/Rh2, g3! if black f2 or g2 then white pushes a pawn up,staving off rook for a bit until they fall, but then white has Kc3!

  7. whites f and g pawns will eventually fall,even with excellent defense. say Bf3/Rf7, Bg4…Then Kd8 stopping whites Bc8 to attack a6 pawn. f3/Rg7 losing g pawn after whites bishop moves

  8. The problem with this kind of problem is even if you reach the solution which is most likely a fortress the engine will keep saying black is winning.

  9. I think I got it…well,first few moves aways. ill know if my comments deleted whether im right or not I guess,lol. Bf3/Rh2, Be2/Rxf2, Bd3/Rf3, Kc2/Rxg3, a4! this is as far as I analyized but white has a strong counter play and black has a difficult time taking pawns down on queen side as king and bishop pair protect them as well as white having a  possible passed pawn after Rg8/axb5/axb5,Bxb5/cxb5, Kb4!   after,maybe Rb8/d3, Ka5/Kc6, Kd4! if black then tries Ra8 then Kc2/Ra1, Kb4/Rc4, then Kc3 and neither side makes doesn't have time to bring his king around to support his rook because of whites c6 passed pawn

  10. How 'bout Bishop E4, sacrificing the bishop, white pawn moves up, checks king as a distraction, and other white pawns advance to seek promotion.

  11. My first thought was a fortress in the A1 D4 corner. Black can get in via King and Rook both attacking D2 simultaneously. Now I am looking at counter-play with the Bishop. 1Bf3 – Rh2; 2Bg4 – Rxf2; 3Bc8

  12. pawn tof4 if bishop threatened by took it moves to f3 the king controls the center and some other infiltration squares by black king

  13. I have a chess book that says the difficulty level for this puzzle is 4. The highest difficulty level in the book is 10.

  14. Since the answer to everything is known to be "42", i guess in chess it translates into position 4-B, meaning the pawn has to go to B4. That should do it. Checkmate 🙂

  15. Kd1 is a draw by fortress after Rh2, Ke1 (or e2), Rxg2, Kf1, Rh2, Kg1, Rh6 (or whatever), and f3 and we have a fortress
