nice. but two ways are here: take or not the knight.Ne7+.. Qxe7 Qh8#.. Kg7 Qh8#
It was the title that pointed the way. My initial inclination was 1. Nh6+, but that would have been futile (e.g., 1.Nh6+ Kg7, 2.Ng4 Qg5 -- and the attack is in shambles). But I didn't even have to LOOK for a better initial move; the title told me where I would find it.
It IS important to check out black's alternatives:1. Ne7+ Kg7, 2. Qh6#
Nice, but an un-obvious decoy is erupting.
easy and obvious...
This is not a "decoy sacrifice". It is a diversion sacrifice.
You say tamato, I say tomato. You say diversion, I say decoy. We've had this debate before but, worthy of another round. Anyone ?
Good day; bonne journée.
good one indeed.
If it wasn't greed
The puzzle you pose isn't the same as the daily puzzle. You have a pawn at h2, so white is vulnerable all over the place. The final move, Nf5+ is no solution at all -- Black will answer, Bxf5 -- then what? I would prefer to be black.
Easy... breezy....beautiful chess puzzle
Why not K to g7?
Gotta stop that Queen from covering the corner. Either she captures the Knight, or the King moves to g7 and blocks her.
Easy but good...
