Good puzzle. How's this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0
some few variations..
1.Nf5+ gxf5 ( 1...Kg5 2.Qe3+ Kxf5 3.g4# )( 1...Kh5 2.g4+ Kg5 3.Qe3# )2.Qxf6+ Kh5 3.Qxf5+ Kh6 ( 3...Kh4 4.g3# ( 4.Qg4# ))4.Qf6+ Kh5 5.g4# *
Can black not do an "En Passant" after G4?
no, the pawns must be on the same numerical row and right next to each others, not diagonal
first post rick roll lol. love it.
Good puzzle. I considered 1.Nf5 but didn't see the follow up, so I went for Qxf6 winning the rook due to the threat of Nf5+ and Qh3#
1...Qc2! and White doesn't win anything at all in this line.
1. Nf5 is check so 1...Qc2 is illegal.
Nice one !
FIRST and NICE!
I suppose it's irrelevant, but where did the white rook come from?
Almost thought he could En passant me at the end... Nice puzzle though..
the pawn has to be on f4 to en passant the pawn
The black pawn would have to be on f4 in order for black to do that
I love the Constitution!
Holy crap, I can't believe I got Rick Roll'd! By the first poster , no less. lol
No. The en passant could only happen if Black's pawn was on f4 moving to g3 to take White's pawn. Otherwise, from its current position, it cannot take White's pawn after its 2 square advance.
Good one, fun puzzle
No he cannot. Taking en passant would have been possible if the black pawn was on the f4 square.
Good, but easy
A very good puzzle. Not so difficult but not so easy.
