not too hard
I See Interesting. :]
It's an easy puzzle, but this seems like a rare occurrence where there is an alternate sequence of moves. Unless I am missing something, the bishop can check before the queen takes pawn and the same result will be achieved (after the 3rd move playing the pawn up), but the puzzle denied me that order. A mistake in the puzzle for denying alternate sequences, though this is rare.
EDIT: Nevermind, the king would take the queen. Order is intact, my mistake.
why is the QXh4 needed?
If we didn't sac the Q then after Bg7...Kh5...g4...hxg4 En Passent and then there is no checkmate line in 3 moves.
I told my woman to get me a sandwich while I say 15th like a boss.
You're 16th. Make her go back and get you a cup of coffee.
Good and interesting puzzle. I didn't see the En Passent at first.
I think you guys are better of talking about the puzzle.
Lighten up. It's funny.
Queen's that die while removing the defender still have the last say...HA!
isn't Bg7+ Kh5, g4# enough?
nvm, I didn't see the en passent the black pawn could do
then the black can plah h4 to g3
Nice pawn mate and a queen sacrifice to avoid the en passant check.
very easy. first page
You do realize that when an 1100, such as yourself, claims a puzzle like this is "very easy", you are being what they call a "troll"?
nice one again.............
Enjoyed that one, looks like being a great year !
Same here until I went through it. And that's why I am merely a 1350 and only a HorseMaster.
