Thank you for this SWEET puzzle, ALL-out ATTACK CARRIES the day!MEOW!!!
chess.com now makes puzzle hard!!!!
Why black do first moove Bg4 instead of Qf8.
got it in 1 try.
Can't Black's b6 Knight move to d7, then, after White's rook moves to h4, that same Knight goes to f8, backing up the vulnerable Pawn on h2.
No. 1 Rf4 Nd7 2 Qxh7+ Kxh7 3 Rh4#
Look back at the answers. Short 1...Bg4 means mate in 5 (as requested). 1...Qf8 is a mate in 4! That's the difference!
What if black answers the first move by g5 ?
1- Rf4 g5
and black continue by
2- ... Rg6
I think the mate threatening dosen't exist anymore !
What do you think?
Take a look at the position after 1...g5. Look for a different type of mate other than the one the puzzle demonstrates. You should find it rather quickly.
Thanks. Yes !! You are right. I didn't see white bishop at first :'(
1 rook.... Makes its opponents panic and mess up
