Easy one.......but some people think YEAH I want a Queen, but dont think about the position of the King and Queen with knight attacking both.
Learn to not always premote to a queen.
This was day and knight compaired to some puzzles. Makes no wonder I figured it out.
Hey, #131. My lucky #!!
Nice puzzle. Thanks.
Ah yes, under promotion: cool.
it was an easy endgame

That was fun
wow.. great underpromotion..
that was a ridiculously easy puzzle...
As funny as it was easy though...
Why sacrificing your knight while you can immediately promote your pawn and save your knight? Besides, it's deceitful to flip the board and choose a colour and position that makes it hard to see the board is flipped ;) but I have to admit, I never noticed the board was flipped :p
Edit: It won't let me quote your puzzle :S
I had the same problem with understanding the logic of black's knight sacrifice. I am guessing it has something to do with problems caused by Rg7 - But I don't see how white could make that a successful attack given black's options with a queen, knight and rook.
no brainer. (rare) situation when under-promotion has its use.
The position of the King and Queen should alert black to the possibility of a fork...
On first try.
I really like this "system"; I wonder if it is played at master level?
