1... qxf2+ derails this poorly constructed "puzzle"
If 1...Qxf2+ mate will occur one move quicker than the puzzle solution. The simplest line would be 1...Qxf2+ 2. Kxf2 c3 3. Be5 c2 4. f4#.
can explain why black will move queen c2-f5? If i am playing, will move queen d2
Lets see here. This is allegedly a game position where Black is nearly the equivalent of a Queen down and immediately puts the Queen en prise with no real tricks such as stalemate if captured or forced pawn promotion? Why not 1.. 1-0 ?
Exactly my point...
such an easy puzzle
