Not bad and first
Yes, I'm the annoying person this time.
Once you find the first move, it all falls into place.
... nice !
When doing these puzzles it is always best to first see what situation your opponent has you in. Once you see that Black's next move is Mate, and you have no escape, then you know that every move you make has to put Black in check until you can achive Mate yourself.
Since your Queen is the only piece that can put Black in check, then you know you have to start with her. Since there are only three squares that you can move your Queen to, that will put Black in check, then it is just a process of elimination to determine which is the best.
After that, the puzzle all falls into place, as you continue to find which of your peices will continue to put Black into check.
it's nice but a downturn from yesterday
what a queen sac did 4 a mate...wonderful...
#15 nice and easy
ok I'm barely decent at chess, but it was mate in one for black, so you clearly had to check right away. then it was just a matter of cornering the king. so ya -> easy.
Not many candidate moves, because you have to keep giving check to avoid being mated by ... Qg2.
nice one :D
