Why do people post "first"?
Because they are can't resolve the puzzle :)
Boom, wonder how he got such a lead.
easy, check out my forum!!!
when they cannot solve the puzzle.. they post "first".
if u want to know who cannot solve the puzzle.. see who post "first", "second", or maybe "third"
because they cannot post what is the posibility of other moves on the puzzle and the explanation why we cant move here or why we must move that way.. because they never know.. they just know how to wait daily puzzle update and quickly post "first" then they will feel no embarrasing anymore..
Nice and easy.
F##k! Only 2% of people who post actually have something important, insightful, or necessary to say.
And yes I realize the contradiciton of my post.
But seriously... EVERY DAY I see the same stupid comments about "oh man that wasn't the best move" or something even more inane such as "first!".
Just LOOK at the puzzle until it makes sense to you. Rg7 leads to mate next move, the only move that leads to mate in 2, because it pushes the bishop off the diagonal that defends against Rg8#. It's a lesson in how to avoid interference - the bishop delaying mate by getting in the way of the rook - as well as tempo/zugzwang - noticing the bishop is the only dark piece allowed to move next turn.
If all of you loudmouths would spend more time LEARNING chess instead of complaining about how the puzzle HAS TO be false you'd probably become a good chess player faster.
Idea: next time you're confused don't accuse the puzzle writers of being stupid or that they're liars; just LOOK at the puzzle and try to reason backwards why that was the most correct move. If you're still confused post something like "I am not clear as to why this is the best move, could someone help me?"
Why not Rc1 as alternative?
i think they they are making fun of us by putting this kind of puzzle or ......
im feelin so fly like a G6!!
What is the object of the 'Daily Puzzle'? As was mentioned above, this one was too simplistic. Also there are two solutions to mate in two moves. Perhaps the objective is to be the first person to post after the puzzle goes online...
