I wish these sorts of positions would show up in my games
crig ra bandolo 1st time 2nd Queen sac for sunday good morning
Sunday? It's Saturday!
I'm not sure, if this is the only way to mate and to win!
What about 1 Rcg1? With the idea of sacrificing the rook on g4 (taking the knight with check) ...
there are more than one ways of checkmate threats for black, though all are not checkmates in 4 moves..
I like it
Shouldn't black have moved it's knight back to g4 after taking the white queen ?
EDIT... No that's no good. Black's doomed !
They probably do. The trick is to realise that you are being presented with an end game puzzle, I think.
Another Q sac 1.Qh6+...Nxh6, 2.Rcg1+...Kh7, 3.Bf5+...Kh8, 4Rxh6#.I liked the way the Q sac forced black N to take Q,now you could use your R to check,forcing Kh7,now you had use of your Bf6, to force Kh8,and then the final blow Rxh6#.Could see mate from begining,nice set up.Good day Chess head's
No computer can solve this mate in 1!!
