So 3, 6, and 9 are monsters and remain unsolved, if they aren't actually broken.
But that was 1994  the engines and hardware was much much weaker.
And then, there was 1.

Re: And then, there was 1.
Just use IdeA with Houdini on #9, should solve it quickly.

the bm Ng5 is not winning: 1.Ng5!! hxg5 2.hxg5! Rfc8! leads to Draw
Nolot.6
the bm ...axb5 is not winning: 13... axb5!! 14.Qxa8 Bd4 15.Ra2! leads to Draw

I do not know if 1. Ng5 is a draw. It seems to me that not. In my opinion,
there are three moves that wins: 1. Bxh6, 1. Nxh6 and 1. Ng5

It seems that after 20. Ra4, ...Rd1! much better holds the situation than your ...Rc1
Indeed, is there still a win for White, after 20 ...Rd1 ?

Yes, Ernest, but the variants after 20 ... Rc1 are beatiful =)ernest wrote:Hi Paulo,PauloSoare wrote:17. Rxd4 a4 18. g4 a3 19. bxa3 bxa3 20. Ra4 Rc1 21.

I've been watching closely over the end and I do not see how black can draw.
A doubt arises, how Dann Corbit make the best move?
