I think the rook takes h7 and mates without taking the queen
Nice one. I almost said it wasn't a good puzzle because the black queen should've taken the rook but even if she did the next move with the pawn would've ended it anyway.
"Why doesn't the queen just take the rook?" is FAR too lame of a question to answer. Why not fxg5 is still obvious, but may be tolerable for the mildly thick-headed.
Clearly, given the overall dismal analytical capacity of these people, nobody will ever question why each move is the best possible for either for side, even if both lead to the same result. In this puzzle, there obviously ARE multiple moves that are equally beneficial:
Why in the first diagram does the black queen start of on the wrong square?
Wait... can't it end sooner?
wHAT a stupid Puzzle , the BLACK QUEEN IN C3 WILL EAT THE PEACE IN (H8) anybody understand me?
wHAT a stupid Post , the WHITE PAWN WILL MOVE TO G4 AND EAT THE KING (H5) you understand anyone?
ROFL very good :)
The puzzle was kind ofeasy.
No problem here!
it was not a puzzle because queen can cut the rook ath8
I was expecting mate to be by the g-pawn since the king was trapped. But not to be. Still a good puzzle.
