funn stuff to get;)
Troub.le with puzzles like this is that you can see the moves right away since there is a strong cheque withe the queen seeing an unprotected sqaure. I apprecxiate the difficulty in coming up with a puzzle on a daily basis, instructive and imaginative. That is never easy, but there is room for improving this daily puzzle since a large number of people grown used to it as part of the daily routine
What's the definition of an 'unprotected sqaure' - is it when all the braves have run away from the reservation ?
The puzzle posted by Azkadaz (#67) is worth a look for those still searching for a challenge today.
Thank you for the puzzle! For those of you who think the puzzle too easy, remember, there are a large number of beginning players here at chess.com. Those beginners have to be thought of when puzzles are posted. A puzzle that a new player can solve can often be just the incentive they need to keep on studying the game. The way I look at it: Any chess puzzle, no matter how seemingly easy to solve, is a good puzzle because it works your brain. Thanks again for the posting!
Now! That wasn't a puzzle. Not even chess.
sunday is a sunday...
Just practicing, thanx for sharing...
g6 to block the previous check would have taken white's knight
1...g6 2.Nxg6!+ wins, but it does delay mate, so probably 1...g6 may have been best for black.
such a sunday puzzle
Solved it in less than 30 seconds.
