what about Nf7! Kg8 Ne7#? Am I missing something?
You miss 1. Nf7+ Rxf7! and then what?
1. Nxf7? Rxf7 2. Qxf7?? Qxg2 checkmate, so White not only fails to win in the required number of moves, but loses right on.
Damn, you are right. Got taken away by those two knights I guess. Thanks!
ok so what do you do if the rook takes the queen on step 2?
Pretty simple, but not bad.
BLACK PLAYS 3 ... Qd1 Mate 3... Rxc8 is wrong move
a good one
Couldn't sleep. Nice puzzle. The near check of White's king was the clue for drastic action.
Exactly. I knew a matricide was the first order of business. :p
THIS is why I love knights even in endgame XD
at first glance i thought "smothered mate? Then once the Queen sac rule came into play, i saw the next 4 moves were forced for Black. Nice.
lol sucks to be black, so close
Absolutely Brilliant! This just goes to show how useful knights can be in end game..
A nice puzzle, shows the strength of knights in the endgame.
wonder how black got into that terrible position. XD
