if n.c8 can black make an escape through pf6 or pg6 ? help...
Yep, I too think with pawn f6 black can escape.
did i mis something because it looked like the knight could just take the queen
why didn't the rook take the knight and why didn't the knight take the queen?
rook mates....i'm trying to figure out if black can avoid mate by pf6 or/g6fairly sure everything works out for white. PAWN MOVES WILL ALLOW BLACK AN ESCAPE THOUGH LOSE MATERIAL.
Excellent combination of tactics. I have solved this puzzle.
as several have pointed out, an early move by black to f6 would have allowed him to escape; doubt if most GMs would miss it.
Not an easy one...
what a thing of beauty.... true attacking prowess
this one was good
Brilliant Queen Sacrifice!!!
Hard this time
What am I missing? I think black would have captured the knight with the rook or knight making this simply a knight give away and not a move that leads to mate. But like I started out saying, what am I missing?
This one was tough.
I think some of the posters here are off their medications. Just because YOU don't understand the nuances doesn't make the puzzle stupid.
After first move everything is much easier
uff ... nice one!
