Damn!.. quite difficult!.. needed to block black queen.. din get that at first look! :'(
Ok, it is obvious why black cannot take white's queen, but could someone explain to me why black could not have pushed a pawn to allow his king an escape? Or possibly move the king a space closer to the rook to defend it? What are the problems with those moves?
Because the Black queen has no defender. If black moves a pawn then white just takes black's queen.
Exactly!.. and thats the point.. perfect play great puzzle!.. :)
THOUGH ONE THERE
Cool! Deflection to the best that I have seen :)
The Queen Sacrifice leading to Checkmate. Thanks for the lesson.
Tried to play a4 earlier but was not accepted.
A4 won't work because of 3. Rc1+ wins! 4. RxH+ or RxR+ (depending which piece white use to defend!!!
Right you are. Excellent play.
How is this nice at all? The whole time white could have lost the queen without any trade
Nice. This Looks like yesterdays.
this is i never seen before^^
very beautiutiful queen combination
Adams-Torre...are we sure? I definitely remember this game. Was thinking it was from the turn of the century.
hard indeed!!!gr8 puzzle!!!
Really nice and clever once you get the idea of trying to remove the Queen from protecting the imporant square.
