This is a really good puzzle!!
14 Hours ; Alice I am going to send you to the moon.
Beautiful. This was from an actual game. I can't imagine myself able to ever setup a position like that except by accident.
Tricky one! The first move I do not completely understand.
See post #45 - explains this puzzle very well.
A nice puzzle
Excellent puzzle. I missed it but good learning.
I worked it out as:
1. Rd1 Rd2+ 2. Rxd2 any 3. Rh2# or
2. Rd1 Rd2+ 2. Rxd2 any 3. Nf3# or
3. Rd1 Rh3 2.Nf3+ Rxf3 3.Rxf3 any 4.Rh3#
Main problem is to clear f3 for the knight. Great end to a game!
I started this whole 'first' business. Blame me!
So.. What you're saying is that you were the first person to say first?
I do not understand the first move.. help?!?!
