How to solve a daily puzzle:
1) sacrifice your Queen
2) look for easy mate.
You are right about sacing Q to solve daily puzzle,as was the case again today,Incredibill taught me that about puzzle,and it ussually works about 99% of time,but today I didn't take the sac the Q route,did not think it was necasary today,I know in real game I do not think i would sac Q,there were other lines to follow to mate,so I tried other line I thought had mate possibillities without sacing Q,but I was wrong,so I plan on sacing Q again when in doubt,good advice for everyone on sacing Q,most people who do puzzle know that,but thank's for your advice
Not too shabby
Easy, looked like one of the old ones posted recently.
We should all have learned this rule by now. If it doesn't ALWAYS work, we'll at least be ahead in the percentages.
That's another good way of mating. Awesome dude!!!
Nice without the Q sac,which most people would not do in real game,unless like today Q sac was a sure mate,good job
why doesnt the king take the rook?makes no sense whatsoever
nice. i like the idea of showing a new approach to an old puzzle. it was cool seeing yesterday's puzzle, but with a new combination of moves to reach the desired result.
still sacrificing the queen though. lol.
If Black responds to Rxg7 by playing Kxg7, then the queen mates on f6 next move.
It's not the same as yesterday's puzzle. The white pawn is on a different square (yesterday it was on g6, today it's on g5).
BTW, I found another mate in 3 from today's puzzle position
yo! FIRST AGAIN !!! B-)
