    Eighth page... I solved it pretty easily, once I realized that what I thought was the queen was actually the king.

    As white you would eventually need to know how to checkmate with a bishop and a knight.  I know that this is possible, but I do not know how to force it.  This is not much of a problem, because I have never even seen a possition which needed this before this puzzle!

    Is there a mechanism for replies to comments on chess.com?  Would anyone like to reply if you are able.

    then you gotta get him with a bishop and a knight. Not easy but possible.

    Nice Queen Sacrifice leading to a overwhelming Knight Fork, forking black's Queen and King!  Thanks for the lesson!

    Call me naive, but isn't the point of Chess to capture the KING?  1. Q-f1 leads to eventual stalemate, even if it is the most logical move, it's NOT the best.  I don't think the material left (W-KNB vs lone king) can force in 50 if this move is used...

    Nice! But it would be rather difficul to mate with a knight and bishop only

    btw, if: 4 ... K-e3, black will win (white must, eventually give up opposition, and when that happens, a pawn will promote).
