Okay, I needed help out of the chute, but then I was fine. However, neat little puzzle!
And Black moves the knight... why?
is that checkmate? it can't be cause the pawn can kill the knight, the rook the pawn, the bishop the rook, the second rook the bishop, then it just goes downhill for black. I''m not sure I understand this puzzle.
I had the same problem - but I think the idea is that after the pawn takes the knight, the the black queen can be taken by the white queen.
That was quick!
Oh, it was black with the queen sac today :P
Shouldn't black have moved the queen and left the knight hanging? Really it's a one-move puzzle but not bad.
I too was looking for a mate, but there isn't one.
Black should just admit the knight is lost and move the queen to safety. Possibly he can use his queen-side pawn majority to build an attack.
So good puzzles, thanx for sharing...
Worrying words Dracom #4 anyone in your cellar?
well, this final move doesnt actually need the two intial steps
No, you're not first :D
What is this whole first trend anyway? Terribly lame.
Really easy puzzle, discovered attacks/checks. Yep.
I'm going with him!
