Very easy lol.(real puzzle that was shown.) A trap that White fell into.(Diagram on comment)
I think 1. Bb5+ is better... No ?
If 1. ... Kd1, 2. Nf3+ wins. If 1. ... Kd2, 2. Nf3+ wins too. If 1. ... Ke3, 2. Nec2+ wins. And of course if 1. ... Qc4, 2. Bxc+ wins.
No, 1Bb5+ is worse as 1. ..., Kd1, 2. Nf3+, fxg1+, 3. Nxg1, Qe6+ winning a knight and at least getting a draw. Go back through the comments and you'll see.
this is silly. Why sac the queen if all u gotta do is Be5 which leaves the black King access to only the d2 or e3 squares which are both open to Knight forks of the black king and queen
White can start with Bb5 and whatever position king moves theres a way to remove the Queen. I dont understand why white has to sacrifice its queen.
No doubt....that was tricky !
priorities are the key. ;]
That was a tricky one - at least I figured out the fork with the night. I finally got to do one!
not the best but it is good enough i guess
seriously what is up with you people!
This problem isn't yet over.
White has Knight, Bishop & King VS King
This is going to be very difficult.
Got it. Not bAd.
It is easy. But we end up with a stelemate even though white has the upper hand
