Well, how about that.
One bishop is as good as another!
qe8+ would have picked up the dark squared bishop so that should be able to work.
YEah It was easy. The tittle confuse me it says :
Same result, and arguably better position. But if the puzzle isn't going to lead to mate, why not harrassing the black queen instead?
Because winning a piece is better?
Also, after 1. Qe8+, Bf8; 2. what?
You do win a piece: the bishop that got away in the "correct" version.
EDIT: Ignore this. Misunderstood what you meant.
first thought was to fork on e8, but then block and white bish miss...hehe, I think thats called tempo.
how is this equalizing? up a whole piece is not equal.
But I don't understand! Where is the queen sac?!
is the only point of this puzzle capturing a Piece? sorry, i just don't get this puze
