Another good one. I liked it.
Got it on my first try! and in under 5 seconds!!!! TT must be working really well I guess
easiest mate in 5 i've done, but still a great puzzle
First time I did a puzzle on my first try.
that was fun
got it first try. i know you throw in those easy ones once in a while to keep us coming back and we do appreciate that.
that was fun
Fine: NOT to easy.
I hate when people say, "too easy!" because sometimes they are somewhat easy, but it makes me feel like a noob. I haven't played chess in a fewmonths so im nto really good anymore ^.^ ughhh
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 :)
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!!!
If White blunders with 2 Nf6?? Black has at least perpetual check beginning with 2...Bf4+ indeed there is checkmate: 3 g3 Qxg3+ 4 Kh1 Qh2# (3...Bxg3+ 4 Kh1 Qf3+ 5 Kg1 Qf2+ 6 Kh1 Qh2# is also possible.) (By the way with 3...Qf2+ you'll have a perpetual check!)
cool puzzle. I thought it was smothered mate at first.
sacrifice rook had to be seen before starting the sequence to do it unless done by luck
What do you think of players who attack before developing their pieces?
