Great puzzle again. thank you
one: QxN-QxQ , two: Ne7+ easy ;)
8th page! :)
Why not Ke7+ ? K black can't take because Qxe8# If Qxe7 then Qxc6 and black are oblige to defend and in the same time white defends e4.
I should of seen the fork, nice puzzle
1st move is knight takes e5 pawn????? what happens if black knight takes the white knight..... What is white next move ???????????
abo_tamem_1012 in #134 presents a brilliant example where Li 2320 uses a devastating Queen sacrifice to defeat Huang Qian 2416.
Huang Qian has two choices, capture the queen (best choice) or capture the bishop with the g2 pawn. If he does neither, Li's queen will capture g2# with his next move. If white captures the Bishop, Li's ... Nf4 will enable Li to move the queen to g2# on the next move. So Huang Qian captures the queen, but now Li's ... Nf4 threatens ...Nxh3# on the next move. Huang Qian delays that one move with Ng6, but Li captures that knight with his bishop, and Li has no further way to prevent ...Nxh3#. Brilliant!I hope I learned from this, because I didn't see it on my own.
