1. Bxh6 fails to checkmate in three. If 1. Bxh6 Qd1+ 2. Kxd1 then 2...g6, no mate next move.
3. Qg6+ is not quite checkmate in this line due to 3...Kh8.
queen sac is becoming a bit cliche in puzzle of the day, can u guys get a bit more creative
Ng6+ Kh7 Nxf8+ Kh8 QxP PxQ Bc3 also mates !??
Why not just Bxh6?
Nice! I would have probably played 1.Bc3 in a real game, forcing mate in just a few moves more than is optimal.
On a less significant tangent, I wonder if I can get my 3rd consecutive "first" on the daily puzzle tommorow!
You're right, after Bc3 black has no significant threat or defense and Qh6 is checkmate, unless black sacrifices rook or queen (anyway, it will be just a slight delay)
8th page! (it's morning on this side of the world)
A Queen sac again is fantastic..
There is a denger of playing Bc3 first.........
unbelievble sacrifice. I missed it
