Knights are where I dominate in chess, so this was real fun.
I find my opponents overlook their importance.
Very Nice !!!
To quote my old HS pals those puzzles were "Cool as a mouse!"
I have an entirely new appreciation for knights.
Thanks for clearing that up Juraldo really helped.
Those puzzles were really cool. When you know the theme they are really easy though.
The first puzzle had me laughing out loud. Such fun!
They were amazing. Shows how powerful the knights can be. Far beyond my brain!
I thing in puzzle one White may have draw by repeating of position if Black continued to try and force White to exchange to gain forking chances. All and all nice practice for calculating chances
fun puzzles!!! Thanks for showing them.
Those were fun! Both those queens could sure run! But they couldn't hide.
I see these 2 puzzles caused some confusion. Why is the queen not taking our free piece? Well the answer is because our knight always forks the queen and king.
Everything clear? :)
I agree, i could also make "beautiful" geometry if my opponent's queen never took the undefended piece i was attacking her with...
could someone please explain what i have missed in these puzzles?
those are siik!!
I didn't quite get the purpose of the lesson, its more just knowing where a knight can go and how to manipulate pieces to go to a more beneficial place for a fork. Also why couldn't the queen just take the piece that was chasing it in both puzzles? or was that just to show how to get the piece to get into position?
math! I always miss the kights. something to remember
math in chess...excellent!!
Nice puzzles! Something to remember during games.
