Why didn't the black Queen take the white Queen?
I somehow accidently made the right move trying to make the right move for 2)Qg3+ (I accidently dropped the queen on that square , then didn't realise it and tried to make that same move again)
Nice puzzle though.
Sometimes, when I'm stumped, I use the accidently dropped technique also.
Excellent puzzle, thanks much.
good one today and thanks to Azukikuru for his input too....sure do agree with him..also thanks to The sky is blue from Hawaii for his work and input. Good job, guys
Ok....Not bad..and your right as far as multible outcomes. I liked bluesky's the best though
Another check out the entire board before moving. Thank you!!!
Okay answer me this question. Never mind. I see said the blind man..
when was the last time it didn't end in a checkmate?
why not to begin with Qg3+ ? that makes an easy checkmate (in 3).
I was wondering why the black queen didn't take the white queen, but then I totally missed bf7. Guess that's why I'm below 1200 on the tactics trainer. (lol)
Another lovely puzzle. White's position is very tense!!!
HEY EVERYBODY - IF THE BLACK QUEEN TAKES THE WHITE QUEEN ON THE SECOND MOVE - THEN BLACK BECOMES CHOPPED LIVER ON THE THIRD MOVE.
Return to post #54, eldridge11111 explains - real good - why the white queen becomes a live grenade.
Saturdays are great, but tomorrow is 'no brain needed' Sunday.
Why can't the Queen move first? Doesn't that lead to mate?
Hmmm... I thought Saturday puzzles were supposed to be the hardest of the week.
too easy i FIRST PAGEEEE shout out to my boi JEREMY LIN!!!
LOL silly nooblet 1300 thinks this was easy. That's cute! :P
