White has many good continuations but only one leads to a beautiful mate! Can you find it?
I liked both puzzles here - but probably because I was able to solve them! The motif is a useful one to know even though I doubt if it comes up very often OTB (and of course there's never anyone around to tell me I have a forced win or mate!)
Good one, I wish the daily puzzle had more like this and less like the many chump-change puzzles that seem to be the norm.
xstagex: nice one, you could just start the problem at move 4 so the idea would be more clear to the solver.
Interesting, the way black gets boxed in by his own pieces. I am coining a new term to describe the predicament black gets into in this problem: "enboxification".
tough puzzle, bt it was fantastic
i did it , but just after some chances, no hint button , difficult but very nice!!!
Do you mind if I post this puzzle elsewhere? If I do then who do I credit as the composer (I'm guessing you)?
VERY nice! ...except that rook sac was too much for me and I had to hit the solution button to enjoy the full show.
I wonder if anyone would see this variation in real game and play it...
simply stunning IM,i tried my best but it was way out of my reach..it was fantastic puzzle :)
