why in 99% of puzzle white to move ????????????
after the 1st one, i got the second one easily
1.Ne7+ Qxe7 2.Qf8# or 2.Rf8#
2. Qxf8 and 2. Rxf8 are not checkmate. The black queen on e7 and the black king on g8 double protect f8. White has given up a piece for nothing and thrown away the mating chance.
Ahh the Posioned Queen. How I love and loathe you.
It's always a queen sacrifice...

Not bad, but not hard either. Third :)
This daily puzzle needs to record the time and number of incorrect moves made for each person who posts about how easy it was. Of course, that could be foiled by using a chess program to solve the problem, since most problems are quickly solved by machine.
