a piece of cake...
that was really easy...
Did any of you not get it right on the first try? If you did not, I am not surprised.
nice puzzle(especially for me birthday)
is that arabian mate, or is arabian mate a checmate where 1 rook and 1 knight guard the squares and the knight protects the rook?
Now there is a standard, regular issue, plain vanilla, Chess.com puzzle.
Step 1. IMMEDIATLY trash the Queen.
Step 2. The follow-up moves will instantly become blantantly obvious.
Yes! Was easy once I remembered to SAC my queen.
Very easy for a Friday, maybe the easiest yet. Must have been a holiday special!
I feel like a pro with that one:) It just clicked for me.
one more good and old
Mate in 4
Are the possible alternate lines 1. Bd3 d4 2. Ke7+ Kc7 3. d8Q+ Kc6 4 Qd6# and 1. Bd3 d4 2. Ke7+ Ka7 3. d8B!! Kb8 (or Ka8) 4. Bb6#, or are there faster mates on 1...d4?
Nice puzzle. But it's too easy as in 'look for what can happen if I sacrifice the queen.' Somehow that rarely occurs in 'on the board games'.
Does winning on time give less points than winning by checkmate?
