    not true


    Defend 2. e8=R+ then as black.

    What's that? You can't? You're still forced to take the rook?

    Try again next time.

    This puzzle reminds me of a game that I played yesterday in which I sacrificed my queen for my opponent's rook, but I got a new queen four moves later due to pawn promotion.

    Easy Back Rank Mate. spotting the idea took about 1/2 a second, spotting the correct first move took about twice that time. :)

    Yes, not hard at all but when you get tunnel vision on the e-file & e8 as I did, you miss the obvious Qxb8 which achieves the same thing. The absence of an imminent mate threat to white can make you think a checking move isn't called for !  Dangerous thing that tunnel vision.   Embarassed
