Deja vu all over again : )
Immeadiatey think of the book Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess. He has probably a dozen problems with the same sac.
Nice and easy
The queen is taken after her catwalk on the 7th rank. Then the white rook checks on the 8th rank. Since the rook is pinned by the white bishop, the queen interposes. But alas, the rook picks up the black queen, and that is checkmate.
1. Qf7+ Rf7
2. Rd8+ Qe8
I have solved this puzzle. It is MLK Jr. Holiday, USA, Earth, Solar System, Milky Way
nicePlease be relevant, helpful & nice!
Simple yet nice
Very neat... Queen sac and the rook is pinned - interposing the black queen only delays the checkmate one move.
Black had one alternative:1... Kh8, but then 2.Qxf8#
Very good for Monday...
These are getting harder. Took me 8 hours to sort this one out.
nice and easy
