Move 3 is a shocker. Hard to believe black can't do anything to prevent mate next move, but his pieces block each other from effective action.
I am with the ones who were baffled at move three.
Hummmm. Forcing moves with check then 1 curious non-check forcing move. Finally, Mate.
not really convinced, i do not think that solution was the best
How could a series of all forcing moves through mate not be the best solution?
What is your better solution?
it will be a long time before I can solve a puzzle like this---but I like to try
----KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK
Nice one. Difficult to spot.
u ppl that keep whining about wanting more difficult problems do realize that this is not the only service in the world that offers chess problems, right? they only do one a day. get over it. if u want more, there's an app for that.
I dont understand the reason of last two steps!
Starting to look forward to the Saturday puzzle - you usualy need to think a bit before you get it.
Realy tempting to grab the black queen on the first move, but we are looking for mate after all.
Notice how the management woke up to the bleeding heart problem and did some housecleaning?
Ya! They missed one. The morons posted later on, again. I usually ignore trolls, but at this point I encourage it. They will get banned soon.
Back to the TOPIC: Yes, the third move caught me off guard. It was a good puzz, reminding me to keep an eye on everything on the board. I tend to focus a little too hard in specific areas, thereby missing out on opportunities like that. The easy Queen pick-off was distracting me.
I found move three to be rather enigmatic
Man, is it non-easy saturday?
