e8=R is the same.
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.
nice and simple
Too easy again
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. :)
easy but good.
oh. good for a wednesday.
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.
The ole' famous Queen Sacrifice! Thanks for the lesson!
a queen sac trick again...
last page! OH BOY OH BOY OH BOY
better and better.
No way.. a queen sac???
