Chess zhor 26


This position is a variation from the Lucena position when Black makes a suboptimal defense 1. Rc1+ Kd6. It's disastrous because it lets White slip his king off the e8 promotion square in such a way as to avoid check. The continuation:


  1. Rc1+ Kd6
  2. Kd8 Re2
  3. Rd1 Kc6
  4. e8=Q Rxe8
  5. Kxe8

leaves white with an elementary King and rook versus king mate.
