A good puzzle for friday.
why not 2 Nf6?
2.Nf6 blocks white's open f file and since it isn't a checkmate, it allows black to launch his attack by:
Welcome to reply for any faster mates regarding this :)
Black had some alternatives, but no "better" moves.
trapped like a rat
Thanks for the lesson.
is Qd8+ Rg8, Nf6 Rxd8, Rh8# ??? Or have I missed something?
For me, the fourth move was the most difficult to see. Managed to solve it, but time was really bad.
Pretty straightforward but nice puzzle anyway.
Why not in 3 moves?
1. Qd8+ Rg8
2. Nf6 Rxd8
You have to find a way to checkmate with check every move. If not Black has either ...Qf4+ or ...Bf4+ (and maybe even mate or perpetual check)!
Your right,but I do not see any perpetual check,depend's what white move's on move 1,Qd8+ never give's black a chance to get out of mate,nice job!!!
Could not find easily the second move...
