What's wrong with Qxc6?
At first I too thought the same.. but 2)...Rh7 would delay the game, and it ll become mate in four1. Qxc6 aim is Qxf6# 1... Rh7 2. Rf8+ Rxf8 3. Qxg6+ Kh84. Rxf8#
Qxc6 Rxc6, Rf8+ K?, Rf7 Mate is solution too i guess...
U R Right.. Please check my analysis (i.e #47) and let me know whether I ve done right.. Thanks
Be6 is the problem with qxc6.the rook dont take the queen.mate in 4
In your line 1. Qxc6 Be6 2. Qxe6 Rh7, there is mate next with 3. Qxc8#. I'm pretty sure on 1. Qxc6 that 1...Bf5 is the only move that extends the game past move three for black.
why Q*Q is not right?
Could also sacrifice the Queen and mate with the rooks.
Keep in mind that on 1. Qxc6 Bf5, black's bishop on f5 guards c8 and g6 and also disconnects white's rooks.
Bf5 Great..nice post bryan
Qxc6 works as well
No it doesn't
