easy but nice
I like it:)
Hi. Just joined. I think my rating is about a 1600 or a 1700. But I really don't know for sure. Anyhow...not trying to rock the boat here, but I think the solution to this puzzle here is WEAK. I solved it in about 1 second. Rh8 then Qh7. The actual "solution" involves a fancy and unnecessary piece sacrifice. Just my 2 cents worth. Happy New Year.
See post 107 above. Rh8 doesn't work bcz it give the King time to escape with Kf7 and after Qh7+...Ke6 or Ke8 which defeats the mate in 2 puzzle requirement.
That's relatively easily to solve.
Why is everyone so exicted about it being 2012? Aren't we all supposed to die in a Apocolypse this Fall?
It's not during the fall, or the winter. It's the solstice :P
The puzzle was very easy . at the same time very much interesting.
1- Rg7+ Kxg7
1st 2012 puzzle finished! Now going back further heading 2011! Man I love puzzles!
finally i can login
Black's pieces help white win.
Tricky mate in two.
