Very good. Excellent puzzle.
kill the queen!!!
I've been distracted lately. I started writing that this was a Monday puzzle and was easier than yesterday's Sunday puzzle. But now I realize it is Tuesday already. It is getting tough to tell what day it is from the difficulty of the daily puzzle.
Easy does it! The Queen sacrifice once and again and the rest was obvious.
Like it :=)
so damn hard
Easy done in first.... tks..
There are solutions for black that resolve in many more moves, and possibly weasling out of a problem. For instance, Ra5-Ra5 and then moving the h pawn forward.
though I want to improve and think critically about these puzzles, I couldn't help but think, "how do I sacrifice the queen this time?"
Nh6 first move..Why lose the Q?
You didn't need to sacrifice the queen for the mate but good puzzle.
I like this one!
1. Nh6 Be7 seems to hold the line - there's no mate on g8 or f7, and if White plays 2. Rxe7?? he loses.
Another Queen sack. I wish that would happen in one of my games. I guess they are trying to show how to set it up, but I either usually end up with a winning queen, queen trade, or a loss.
Why do i always have to sacrifice my queen? If I hadn't it would've been Mate in 2... (rook e8 -> rook f8 -> mate in 2 without having to sacrifice my queen -.-)
