queen sacrifice again
Great puzzle.For those of u who hate the queen sacrifice;if u cant win without the queen,u need to re-learn chess.You put so much worry into the queen,that you forget about the trap,or fork your sneaky opponent has set up for mate.Learn to play without her and you will become a better player.God bless.
yeah sure, but it gets repetitive when all you ever do in these puzzles is sac your queen and that can get annoying very fast
At the risk of sounding repetitive: There should be loads of puzzles out there that don't involve queen sacrifices. Seriously, I don't even have to look for the first move anymore, saccing the queen is an automatic first move. Doesn't sound very much like chess to me?
it's actually a real problem!
saccing the queen is my first impulse even in real games now! :)
they are brainwashing me!
to easy :.p
The ole' famous Queen Sacrifice! Leading to a discovery/double check and checkmate. Thank you for the problem!

make your opponent feel happy first and then immediately sad.
I see a lot of people running the puzzles through the Analysis board.
Must be that Queen Sacrifice Syndrome!
