Hi All I'm still reluctent to sacrifice my lady first but every time I see a queen in a puzzle it's nearly always thats the first move
With the holiday season over, chess.com announces a return to the standard 'Trash the queen' daily puzzle format.
For newcomers to the daily puzzle, we can reduce this program to 3 easy steps!
1. Carefully study the puzzle.
2. Determine the move that will guarantee the sudden and instant demise of the white queen.
3. With the removal of this frivolous and basicly pointless white piece, the winning combination will now absurdly and quickly obvious.
Very good puzzle.
that was good, but easy
Good Queen sac.
Beware! Low stats does not equal lack of ability!
