DO NOT QUOTE THE FIRST POST!
1. Qf8 Kf8. 2. Re8#. I have solved this puzzle.
That tactis trainer puzzle is flawed to be honest. The king should have been moved to g8 once the queen's attack was removed. That would change the game and even opens up the possibility for stalemate, possibly checkmate, if black plays properly.
Never claimed that TT puzzle was difficult Gimpalersan, just less easy than today's daily one!
As for your assertion that it's 'flawed', you might want to go & look again because at no time can the king escape - remember that the white bishop is on g6 by the third move & cuts off any retreat via f7. And anyway, what exactly does "once the queen's attack was removed" mean ?
Of course if you'd like to post your alternative line....?
Miscounted the play, you're right. I would have played that version in an actual game and it actually wouldn't have changed anything at all. Sorry bout that.
could see it, not play it
good one indeed.
Why is the puzzle messed up?
Same here...the board is doubled (stacked vertically), and I can't move any pieces.
I can't even see if I am supposed to play as black or white! I'm guessing white, though...
what happened to the puzzle?
How can this website have such a bug.. it needs to be fixed asap
The puzzle is glitching on my computer
Is it the same on everyone elses?
