Took me a bit to get that one, sweet styles.
Obvious mate is obvious.
In this position, note the following:1 - King's opponent is confined in the back rank and thus back rank weakness !!2 -The only defender in this rank is black rook in e83 - The move for white and thus the initiative4 - The forced move here for white and which exploit the foregoing mentioned above is Queen to ( e6 )5 - all of the above mentioned and led to this situation embarrassing and difficult for the black due to the possibility of ( Anastasia's mate ) !!!
Look to ( if you want ) : Essential Checkmate Patterns course by FM Thomas Wolski in chess mentor ....
this puzzle is for rokie.this is a very easy puzzle.
wish i would actually find this ina real game
why is it called sucker punch
ok. that's a very nice chess play
Come to think of it, the white Q can move to many squares, but the only one which forces the rook off the bank rank is e6
Great great puzzle. Nice.
