I don't understand why black didn't capture the knight after the first move either with Ke7 or Ra8.
because if rook takes the knight queen can move to d8, Rxd8 and and then back rank matew/ rook.
if knight takes then also mate.
Okay, after looking through 13 pages, I couldn't find where this question has been asked/answered. Can't black get out of the forced mate by playing 2... Ke8 3. Rxd5 (threatening 3... cxd5 4. Qe7#), and then 3... Rxc8 4. Rxh5 Bxh5 5. Bxh5? Yes, black trades a knight, bishop, and queen for a knight and rook. But they're still in the game.
SMOTHERED!!!!!! Love them
Well played, thanks for an excellent puzzle.
Beatiful. Made me LOL.
Wouldn't someone just most likely take your horse with either the rook or the bishop?
i thought the solution was interesting but I really dont understand the logic behind some of first moves. Is the solution really absolutely the best moves or are some of these puzzles more demonstrative/interesting than tactical?
What about 2... Ke8?
hard puzzle, great!
This puzzle is so cute.
that's seriously awesome
so.. why did the black rook not take the knight on the first move?
The best puzzle I have tried
I didnt get this one....... how this worked
