After the first move it was easy sailing.
Refreshing deviation from the usual queen sac
mate in 3
or 41.Bd3+Nh52.Qxh5+Bh63.Qxh6+Qh74.Qxh7#or 41.Bd3+Bh62.Rxh6+Nh73.Qd4+Qg74.Qxg7#
I imagine there's someone here who can tell me why not to play any of these?
Now thats exciting!
I think this covers all of the lines available - they all take a maximum of 5 moves, including those shown earlier with 1...Nh7 and 1...Bh6
After 1. Bd3+ Kg8 2. Rh8+ black has KxRh8, and now white's mating attack does not finish black off, so white ends up worse off, for example, after 3. Rh3+, black simply plays Kg8 again.
1...Nh5 and 1...Bh6 do not work out for black, as you have shown, so Kg8 is best for black, and as mentioned above, black ends up ahead.
1. Bd3+ Kg8; 2. Rh8+, Kxh8 and where's your mate in 5?
eta: ninjaed! *shakes fist helplessly*
Amusing little puzzle.
too easy puzzle
Good one ..
yay i did it
1- Bf5 Kg8
2- Bxe6+ Kf8 (if .... Qxe6 3-Qxg7 #)
3- Rh8+ Bxh8
4- Qg8+ Nxg8
How about 2 BxE6 QxE6 what then,different game I think.
Why doesnt black queen capture the white bishop after a second move?
nice one... liked all the sacs up to the last one :)
