    First the king setup a mating attack tactic 1.Kc4 Rxa6 2.a4 {if Rxa4 then Kb3 mate follows}Ra7 or Ra8 follows by 3.Kb3 then it easy from there.

    Thanks, but I don’t get it. After 3.Kb3, doesn’t 3…Rb4+ force a draw?

  4. Jeff,
    After 4.Kxb4, don’t you think being a R up is enough to win? How’s that a draw??
