Well that's easy. c3's not guarded.
I'm not sure if this or the chessbase April Fool took me longer to spot...
Ah, OK, got it. Ho ho.
Timely post!I like the way the positions of the White King and Queen give a clue (though shouldn't they be locked in by bishops?).Angus.
I like the way the positions of the White King and Queen give a clue (though shouldn't they be locked in by bishops?)Angus - I checked the puzzle in the book and you're right. I've edited the diagram to include them.The mistake was mine not Smullyan's.Well spotted. Have yourself a Dearstalker hat as a prize.
... and I should also have mentioned Angus gets the Sherlock holmes for providing not just the solution but also the proof...J
Thanks Jonathan.I look forward to sashaying down Streatham High Road in my Dearstalker.Angus.
Is this position legal?Richard
ah yes...a dearstalker maybe means something else???
*Richard:"Is this position legal?"Indeed it is ... see Angus' comment earlier.
I know that Black is playing up the board.But is it legal??Richard
You mean, has enough material been taken for the pawns to have dosado'd (?) one another so many times?
