good & nice
why is the QXh4 needed?
en passent... queen have to hit h4
why is QxH4 needed????
simply BxG7+Kxh5, g4# .
good puzzle, but it's not necessary to sacrify the queen. moves with bishop and pawn are enough. i don't undersatnd the first white move the queen take the black pawn? if someone can explain me?
Qxh4 is needed because if not the sequence would be Bg7+ Kh5, g4 and then black must play hxg3+! and there isn't way to force the mate!
QxH4 is needed because
BxG7+Kxh5, g4+g3 and the king is free.
I enjoyed it.
Kinda nice, the queen has to be saced just to get rid of an annoying en passant capture. :)
rather than when we solve the puzzle (first page)
should we put forward how long it takes each member...
and show up the result each day
