that was easy but good
The title should be called:1/20/2012 -What a pin!
Very nice! This is why capturing the rook at f2 is a no no!
i didnt see the pin...that was cool
the pawn was able to kill the queen . was not cool
Question from a new person...why wouldn't the pawn just kill the queen?
It can't because it is pinned by the bishop.
I don't understand...what does it mean to be pinned?
Means the pawn can't take, or Black would be putting himself in check.
Problem with this puzzle before it starts, black would not have left white's Queen standing.
And if the puzzle had said "Black to move" you'd have had a point. If. Duh.
easy one :-)
Congrats to those who noticed it. It was pretty easy if you ask me, if you noticed the bishop.
Why Qa4 instead of Kb8 by black?
1. ... Kb8??
2. Ra8+! Kxa8 (forced)
3. Qa7+ Kb8 (forced)
good one... I missed the pin at b7 initially.
WOW white had to sacrifice a lot of peices in order to win. At least the queen suvived
