I'm guessing that 99% of the people who claim how easy that was would NOT have thought that sequence through in a game. Or at least they would not have immediately seen that "easy" forced mate.
Either that, or these boards are just packed with people much better at chess than I am.
I solved the puzzle but what do I have to show for it? It's not like posting on the first page. That is where true self-actualization is achieved.
Well played. (:
I know... Doesn't it just suck? We're such losers.
I thought it was a good puzzle. Keep up the good work, puzzle staff!
simple but good!!!
Exactly. Unfortunately, confronting FirstPagers with sarcasm is like trying to keep the tide out with a pitchfork...
Thanks for the lesson.
Nice moves forcing the king to dance to death
nice one :) too easy :D
Wow, took me 30 seconds to find that there was a black pawn there forcing things... I must be very dizzy today..
Easy? i dont think so. Never is easy , never for me.
