Tiptoeing, tap dancing.
I saw that the Black Queen was saving black, but did come up with the idea to divert it. A very good but very difficult puzzle for me. Very instructive, too.
wow! this is wonderful!
Why would the black Queen not take the whit Queen after moves 1 or 2 There is nothing covering the white Queen and thus a strait take not a trade? Veary confused by this puzzle.
You have got to be kidding me!
Seen position before... but went blank on last move :(
Figured it out after a while.
great puzzle I didn't get but I tried!
Mission : decoy.
Great puzzle for Deflection. with Back Rank mate looming all white wants to do is remove either the Queen or C Rooks influence over the e Rooks light square that both whites Rooks are pointing at. Very Nice.
tough one. and for a change no queen sacrifice
This position came from a famous game that my teacher showed me. Easy
too difficult for me... not even close to getting it.
In the 4. Qxb7 Qxe2 5. Qxc8 line, the correct response for black is 5...Qxe1+ 6. Nxe1 Rxc8, leaving black up a rook.
why black didn't capture white's queen? he had the chance on several occassion, what am I missing here?
Plenty of offers though.
Nice one. it's the hardest puzzle i have ever seen.
i dont get it
