I'm going through a chess tutorial (Shredder). One of the exercises begins where all pawns are in their starting positions. I have a queen and my opponent has a rook and a knight, again all in starting positions.
[FEN "r5n1/pppppppp/8/8/8/8/PPPPPPPP/3Q4 w - - 0 1"] [Title "Exercise - Capture all the pieces"]
I need to eliminate the opposing pieces or at least prevent them from moving. At the "hard" setting I can't even get close to succeeding. Can anyone give me some clues, or things to consider as I try to "win" this?
