Can someone explain why you wouldn't have 7. Qxa1?
Because that would be stalemate
It's always the novices that make stupid remarks like this. The puzzle was actually a very logical and difficult puzzle, you're just too new to understand any of it.
Someone said that already.
This might be the dumbest puzzle...what was the goal???
Thanks, I didn't see that before I posted, but I did notice that pretty quickly after reading the following posts
Oh i get it now-a stalemate! Ofcourse:)
why didn't black play kxb6?
why like that
Why not 7. Qh2+?
Why not h2 with the FIRST move? Looks to accomplish the same end only quicker.
axb and both sides get a queen and black has an extra pawn.
Why did black give up his queen?
Had seen this puzzle long time ago :)
about 1000th !!!! lol. Loads of problems with this, king cud hav taken pawn at the beginning and i dont understand y the white king didnt just take the black king and get a checkmate from there!
wow good puzzle...
why does the queen gose to e8
Woah. Tough tough tough...
this is the answer who have a question why black's king didnt take b6 pawn..
and this is the answer who have a question why not bxa6..
To the second question is not a draw. Black moves Qb8+ and wins the game
oh yes my mistake.. im already change it.. final move Qb8+
People are so stupid. 4/5 person say that this puzzle doesnt work and is stupid and that the moves make no sense. none of them really analyze or read the posts below before making an opinion on the puzzle. Thats pathetic, and it discourages me. They don't understand that ALL THE DAILY PUZZLES work, except the ones bugged.
