Fun. Queen sacrifice.
if it has nothing to do with the puzzle why doesnt it just get deleted as not relevant
waaay too easy
very nice, easy but niceside note. Do people actually wait until it is exactly 3 in the morning.(or w.e their time zone) just so they could type first? can someone maybe explain to me what the satisfaction they get from it is...
Beats me. But then, I don't get the people saying 'easy' either. Easy for you? Maybe, but is that really so interesting to the rest of the world you need to let everybody know? Easy for everyone? Nope, it's not.
I think no one ever received applause for the great achievement of "first!" or "easy!" yet somehow they must feel better after writing it, cause otherwise this would have stopped long ago. Very puzzling comments, these puzzle comments.
If people get off on sayn "first!",then let it be!No one is hurting anyone,are they?just let it be,let them have their moment-stop hatin.
I don't hate. I just think y'all are megalomaniatic egotistic nincompoops, and you’re only still alive because natural selection was neutralized by technology, is all.
megalomaniacal? (yes, I googled it to be sure). Also, I like what you say about natural selection; at the beach all the lifeguards say that our job is to stop it from working.
Rk c1 to g1, qn takes pawn ckmate, sparemove make a sandwich and have a coke :)
Then what about 1 Rcg1 Qxc2+ 2 Qxc2+? Oops no checkmate at all (game over for Black)! (See diagramm in post #80!)
very difficult. Ashamed of myself :-(
finally. nice and easy.
I have solved this puzzle
One more intersting fact, I would like to share .. For most of the people who rate "easy" for a puzzle are very low-rated in Tactics Trainer.
It looks like they are declaring the puzzles "they could solve" as easy, and hard are the puzzles which they can't solve..!!
