Updated every Monday, Wednesday and Friday ... and maybe other days too.
What happened next? Well, this average club player would like to play Kg2 with the intention of bringing the king to d1.Angus
right, what about:1. Rg2 (waiting) Rh5+2. Kg4 f5#?Seani
No - though not totally wrong either...
Actually, it seems a shame not to mention other possibilities:OPTION 1: It's time trouble and people are blitzing out moves, so play continues:44. Rd6+ Kh545. g4 checkma...after which White reddens and goes to AfricaOPTION 2: Still, time trouble and play continues:44. Rd3?? Rxd345. f5+A check before dying...45. Kxf5 Rf1+draw agreedseani
How about:1. Kg4 h52. Kh3 h43. Kh4 Rh54. Kg4 f5 #jms
I think EJH's recent question about whether a sealed move is part of the game has some relevance. RdC
1 Kh4 Rh5+ 2Kg4 f5 mate
White sealed 1. Kh4 and the game was agreed drawn on white's offer.Richard
As has perhaps been hinted above, with the "What Happened Next?" series the answer always involves not only the moves on the chessboard,but the story accompanying them...
White sealed a move allowing mate, then offered a draw which was accepted?PG
Ok, well while I like the JMS resolution, let's plug with Chris Morgan's suggestion with a narrative interpolation:1 Kh4 (=) Rh5+ 2 Kg4 f5 mateseani
I think PG above (and indeed RdC) may be on the ball......full story tomorrow unless people can't wait until then.
Did you get this out of some book published about 15 years ago, possibly called "Blunders and Brilliancies"?Or maybe something similar without the "Brilliancies" bit?Richard
Though it sounds like the sort of book I would get things out of, if I had it.
I think this game was mentioned in a book by Hartston.RdC
I think you may be right.
My guess:Kh4 offering a draw (which black accepts?)Jarle
Bearing in mind the title of the piece, was one of the players David Coleman. Errrrrr. Remarkable.PG
