what's wrong with 6.QN6? (Qg6)
That allows 6...Qxf7, which slows down white's mating attack.
What is the "Missed Opportunity?"
I expected black to move 6. ... Kf8, but white would have answered 7.Qf5+ and after 7. ... Qf7, 8.Qxf7#
I chose 1.Bg7+, because my queen was en prise, and after that the moves were quite straight forward, though I struggled on the fifth move, deciding which piece to use in capturing the knight at f7. It was ony after the fact that I realized how useful it was to have my rook up there on the seventh rank.
Apparently, white must have missed this in the actual game.
Hallo "kings_Landing" : nice puzzles , in your second puzzle after white played kd6 , what if black plays kb6 instead of Bxb1. Is still a mate in 2 possible??
A few variations to consider, including how things turn out after 5. BxNf7+ and 5.QxNf7+
Too hard .
why not Kf8?
meow......keeping the pressure on!
why not 6 --K f8?
