COOL BUT NOT COOL
You know chess is simple. Knight takes Queen. Play the point and position system.
3 pawns too far away. Black rook powerless. White controls...wittle black down...
Wasn't sure about move 3... Hard but good.
This was a tough one for me. I would have been hard pressed not to take the Queen.
Why take the Queen when you can take the King and win the game with: 1.Bf5+ Kd5 2.Qh1 Kc4 3.Qb1!! (Double exclaimation) ...Bb4 4.Qd3# Checkmate. Nice lesson. Thank you!
The first move is Knight taking the black Queen at a7 in anyreal world game. Sometimes these hypotheticals are too hypothetical.
yes move 3 is very tricky
FIRST, to check the solution.
pretty hard for me, being a chess noob and all, but it was only the last 2 moves that really got me because they weren't forced checks/moves. stimulating puzzle.
First two moves were easy, but the third was the difficult one.
this is very easy...
