If Ba6, Nd6 stops mate.
Wow, I'd would've never thought of that!
totally killer progression!
Why not 1...Bd7
What's wrong with 1)Ba6?
Nc3 will lead to loss of queen or bisshop
Nf6 will lead to loss of queen or bisshop
first! and believe it or not it was easy! u have to understand that when its a planned mate such as this one was pieces will have to be scaraficed in order to make ur opponent move how u want them too! this is how the puzzles should be all the time cause the last few were pretty simple! NO OFFENSE to anyone
Black can play Nf6 attacking the white queen whilst also defending his rook and white's attack breaks down
not bad. but why not 1. Ba6
Black can then move its knight.
why not 1.Ba6?
Ba6 is not good the knight play Nf6 and the queen has to move and finally the bishop died
Yes, this was nice.
B;cause knight goes 2 d6
