How far can you calculate in Chess? How about 125 moves?
White to play
Blathy,O - 1938 1-0
Mate in #125
Yes, 125 moves! I'm not joking.
After digging through musty books and journals, I found this interesting chess puzzle which was composed by Blathy,Otto in the year 1938. White forces a checkmate in 125 forcing moves! This is the longest combination I have ever seen. How about you?
I will post the answer to this puzzle in tomorrow's post. Stay tuned...
