why doesnt the king move to g8 after the rook goes to h6? wouldnt that make things more difficult for white?
nevermind... i now see the faal flaw to that move.
hmmm.... i think that i may be right.... moving the king back instead of taking the rook may have been blacks better move.
I liked it.
nice Sacrafice of the rook for a Victory!
i finally got one.:)
That was answered back on page 1 of the thread. 1. ...Kg8; 2. Nf6+, Kf7 (the pawn is pinned and can't take the knight); 3. Qg6#
yes, i see that. the king once checked by the night can then move to f7... i haven't figured it out much further than that but seems it would be more difficult for white to get a mate than when the king takes whites rook outright.
ok, Qg6 is the finisher.... ok ok, i see it now. sorry for the trouble. ;) i should realize by now that folks much smarter in the ways of chess than i am are the ones creating these puzzles. peace
good one :)
good one and number 97!!!

There's a lot of self-horn-tooting on these. Thanks to Azukikuru for the only useful comment in the thread.
With all the "ez" and "yawn" comments every day, makes me think this site is overrun with 12-year-olds.
hay! don't make fun of us 12-year-olds!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey! I spent a whole year being 12, and had a great time , but that was 42 years ago. I also make yawn comments when the puzzle is not much of a ....puzzle.
And today it was pretty basic stuff. This site sometimes has really hard puzzles, and I look forward to them. You have to make mistakes in order to learn.
nice and easy
nice to think...
I keep expecting the puzzlles to get harder through the week. This week it seems just the opposite.
