Rxf3+ and it's game over.
Take with the knight at least.
Why would you allow mate?
if the queen went to e1 wouldnt it also be checkmate?????????????????????????????????????????????
there's actually a mate in 2 there. 1) Rg1+ Kf6 2) Qg5 1-0
The continuation 2...g5 3 hxg6# would have been prettier, with a rare en passant checkmate. Oh well.
In your first puzzle, White should play 2.Qg4# not 2.Qf3+.
Just thought I'd say.
prativa, your first puzzle, Qg4 is mate
Would someone please explain to me the point behind making 9 empty posts, like writing 9 nine times in 9 different posts or some such odd and silly use of a space that essentially belongs to everybody.
I know that chess players are normally smart; but smart people are not immune to mental illness. Perhaps some members should be forced to take their meds before visiting the site.
OF course if there is a deep, hidden meaning to all of this then I will visit a psychiatrist myself.
I'm pretty sure people are just trying to get noticed...
is it sunday?
Ha! It is great, isnt it?
Once again, I found the thread more entertaining than the puzzle
For #35 after Bxc6 Na3#no?
