Forced mate in 3... have a nice day ; bonne journée.
Cool :) !
nice and easy
Difficult puzzle. Nice.
The queen sac is the only forcing move. Forcing moves are much easier to calculate.
No, I think 1.Ng6+ forces Kh7. But the Queen sac is still necessary to clear the main diagonal for the dark-squares Bishop.
I meant forcing sequence. Queen sac to CM is easy to calculate.
good one indeed.
I went for the 1. Ng6+ first as well. When you see it to the end you just think that's the right move. But the real solution is mate in 3 not mate in 4. Which is why 1. Ng6+ is not correct.
I don't like sacrifices...
also ng6 could be played
Wooow that's lateral!
Again the queen dies for "King and Country" !!
jajaja that's right!
again the queen sacrifices itself.
Simple, easy, nice !
