Who else selected the incorrect rook for the first move ?
buona la prima
nice but an easy one
I did. Have to look better next time.
I took some time to find out that only the top rook was able to sac, since the other one prevents the black king from running down to the h file. veyr nice XD
If you use the other rook, black can escape to h5.
Hard one for me today,had to hit help for first move,was able to finish from there,1.R8h6+...gxh6, 2.Qg8+...Kf6, 3.Rxh6#.I tried wrong R first also.Thank's Chess.Com,good day chess head's.Nice puzzle!!!
very good one!
is nice this puzzle..
easy but nice
For me it was straight the question: "Which rook?"Then I looked to the squares the Black king has left. Also the queen's move was crystal clear to me. That's what leads me to the right choice ... (But the wrong rook is often a theme even in the opening, where it's more difficult to tell what's the "right rook" ... *sigh*)
Start the day ,the correct way.
