sacrifice rook had to be seen before starting the sequence to do it unless done by luck
Hurray 1st time calculated the moves correctly without moving :) :). Thanks for the puzzle
Congrates bro!!! :)
The puzzle above came from this game:
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 a6 4. Ba4 Nf6 5. O-O b5 6. Bb3 Bc5 7. c3 d6 8. d4 Bb6 9. Be3 O-O 10. Nbd2 Bb7 11. Re1 exd4 12. cxd4 Nb4 13. Qe2 c5 14. a3 Nc6 15. d5 Ne7 16. Bg5 Ng6 17. a4 c4 18. Bc2 h6 19. Be3 Re8 20. Qf1 Bxe3 21. Rxe3 Qb6 22. Rea3 Rac8 23. axb5 axb5 24. Bb1 Ra8 25. Rxa8 Bxa8 26. Bc2 Bb7 27. Ra2 Qc5 28. Ra5 Nf4 29. Ba4 Qc7 30. Rxb5 Ba6 31. Rb4 Qc5 32. Bxe8 Qxb4 33. Bc6 Qxb2 34. e5 c3 35. Qxa6 c2 36. Nf1 c1=Q 37. g3 (and the puzzle begins on Black's 37th move.)
37...Qxf2 ch! 38. Kxf2 (38. Kh1 Qg2 # 0-1) 38...Ng4 ch 39. Kg1 (only move) 39...Qc5 ch 40. Kh1 (40. Ne3 Qxe3 ch & mate to follow) 40...Nf2 ch 41. Kg1 (only move) 41...N2h3 double ch 42. Kh1 (only move) 42...Qg1 ch 43. Nxg1 (only move) 43...Nf2 # 0-1. Check out all the Knights. A spectacular double-Queen sacrifice that leads to a checkmate!
I find it hard to get my pieces in the excellent positions they give you in these puzzles, but it's easy to play once you're in them. I guess that's what the game's all about
ROOK SAK LEADING UP TO MATE#
Thanks Ragulvuto for posting that puzzle (#169) - it's quite tough...
I've just noticed that you've posted the game (& solution) from which this came ! Do you have any information regarding the players & venue ?
Although it's perfectly o/k to present a puzzle as just a plain diagram without any moves, it's important to use the 'diagram' option in the game creator. Otherwise a lot of people will be trying to move pieces & that can cause a great deal of frustration !
Thanks for posting those details Ragulvuto, a fascinating end to your game - just a shame it was the computer that won.
I'll send you some details of how to post diagrams & puzzles
