1. Ng5 2. Kh7 3. Nf8 Why wouldn't this work
Nice set-up move to force a capture and block an exit for the King.
Am I the only one who thinks that "IncrediBill" is a big douche thinking every mindless pieace of cake puzzle is a brilliant composition?
NO YOUR THE DOUCHE,IF YOU WERE OPEN MINDED YOU WUOLD REALIZE IT TOOK X NUMBER OF MOVES TO GET WHERE WE STARTED PUZZLE,ITS ALL THE MOVES BEFORE THAT, WHERE THE BRILLIANCE COMES IN,MY BAD MAYBE YOU ARE CHALLENGED AND YOUR MIND IS LIMITED,TRY BEING OPEN MINDED,INSTEAD OF PUTTING PEOPLE DOWN.THAT PUZZLE CAME FROM A REAL GAME.
a classic smothering of king
Not easy to solve...
Thanks. "Was blind, but now I see".
If you can't figure out who the 'douche' is, then its probably you.
to whoever wrote 1.Ng5...Kh7,2.Nf8 will not work,pawn blocks Queen,pawn is protected by rook,nice try but it is flawed
deepak said hmmm
nice and easy :)
a piece of cake
You can't block with the pawn since Nf8 i a double check.
However, because of Kh8, Nf8 is no winner.
Of course it's from a real game. But why bother posting obvious mates and calling them puzzle? I don't think Larsen had a tough time finding the mate from the position where we are given the puzzle.
There are so many great puzzles out there why not post them instead of this?
Or at least change the headline to something like "mate of the day". Because calling it a puzzle is a disgrease to most puzzle makers.
LAST !! (at last !)
Very good puzzle.
ah!!! back to the queen
Got this one : )
