Good to know that I still know how to play this game
haha when I clicked on this puzzle the white queen didn't show up. I was so confused because the puzzle was impossible, then I was about to give up and the white queen popped up haha.
I like this puzzleXD~if my opponent play with me like this combo attack~I am sure i will get mad XD~Anyway~3Q for this nice puzzle^^
piece of cake!
solution lies in cornering the king...
This is cool, or Constapated, Overweighted, Overworked, Loser.
Easy again! infact white is winner,,, still he has to move only moves.
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.
Or you just read the title that says mate in 4 and make it happen - lol!
nice puzzle ..
1,2,3 & Four; almost same tactic
