At first I was looking at 1. Rxh6+, couldn't make it work, and then realized the importance of keeping a rook on the h-file the entire time, keeping the knight on h6 pinned. For example, if 1. Rxh6+ Nxh6 2. Rg1+ Kh7 3. Bf5+, then the knight is free to play 3...Nxf5 because it is not pinned, as opposed to the puzzle solution. Once I realized all this, I got it rather quickly.
interesting.. took a while to get it
Takes a little careful thought - good puzzle !
Very nice queen sac. I tried first with the rook, but it'd break the logic really.
More puzzles please! :D
It is a matter of finding the first move. The rest is forced.
A beautiful one. Thanks, Chess.com!
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) ...
1. Rcg1, with the immediate threat of 2. Qxh6#, looks like it ultimately works, but because it is not a check, it allows black time for stalling/defensive moves beginning with 1...Qxc2+ that should delay mate for more than four moves.
solved in 2nd time
Not too difficult
First time doing it without making a mistake :D
i never get the queen sac ones because i don't have the guts to do the sac
A question of who was going first, rook or Queen.As per chess.coms perference i figured go w/ the Queen.
