Good puzzle! I had to go to the solution.
I recently played a game that had a similar solution --- it was to the benefit of my opponent!
It is ceepon saying incorrect every move I do so annoying
there are other choices but this was a logical choice
An extremely difficult yet fantastic puzzle from real life (not composed!)
The fact that a bishop or pawn at c6 keeps down the black king is awsome!
I found it impossible to find Qg7!! The following diagram is for those who find the puzzle "stupid", "lousy", etc.
Great puzzle, thanks! :)
Legal's mate !
Edit: Not exactly - the black knight on c6 shouldn't be there & complicates things a little.
excellent puzzle !
The main line of the combination (in post #162, above) is 1. ... Nxe5 2. Qxh5 Nxc4 3. Qb5+ winning a Pawn.
Curiously, this is exactly (move for move) one of my OTB tournament games from the 1970's... played in Moncton, New Brunswick against Roland Basque.
i don't get it
4.Qg7 is a deflection or removing the guard tactic??
