now that was a beautiful maneuver...
good one......first attempt was to take the Queen.....
A very interesting chackmate in my opinion.
Good puzzle. I couldn't see beyond
3. Nc7+? Qxc74. dxc7 ......
Once again, Queen sac is the way to go.
And you felt it necessary to show us this tardfight because...?
this is not even piece of cake..... its plain butter
Good one indeed.
Very pretty mate. In a real game I'm sure I would've played 1.Nf7+,Qxf7 2.Qxf7,Kf8 3.Qe7+,Kg7 4.Qxd7.
The Knight and the Queen make a great pair.
I think that the Queen should marry the Knight.
The q. sac is the most tempting.....puzzle is first class for a n. mate in the center-----hard to bring off in actural play,in fact i don't think i've ever seen one.
Yes very clever- like everybody else the lure of the Queen is toooo much
I like when puzzles like these arise from actual games.
I liked this puzzle very much.
Yeah, I went for the queen, too.
nice queen sac!
Another smothered mate !!!! NICE....
I am just curious .Does first mean first to solve the puzzle or first to see it .is there really a competition for that?Are the puzzles posted in a random time of the day or is there a specific country time when the puzzles are changed.This is my first time I have ever commented on first comments. No offence at all,I am just curious.
