How to slove chess.com puzzles
Step 1: What is the dumbest looking queen sac on the board?
Step 2: What are the rest of the moves?
good puzzle... definitely out of the box
out of or outside the box..?
Easy but the placement of the knight while very powerful is questionable because black did not think to capture it and white has nothing guarding it.
Okay saw a previous post as how this position was arrived at. The knight moves to this square to avoid capture but it is still in the open until the queen check. Interesting.
These queen sac puzzles get really derivative. It takes all the joy out of doing puzzles if you know every one of them is going to be a queen sac of some sort.
