liked this one and got it correct. seems i am starting to get the hang of them. dont thinki would never have seen this in a real situation though.
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
