The title is right: precision is asked!
First I didn't realise why to check again with the queen but afterwards it got crystal clear! Really a good puzzle!
so what happens if black didnt take the N?
u play g4 check and then give check with knight to h6
That's an illegal move because the knight is on g4 !
I don't understand why so many people are arguing here that black shouldn't take the N at move # 1! The only other legal move available to black at this stage is the bad move Kh5? White can answer this with 2. Nf2, engaging black in the Q's defense to next play, 3. g4+ and aggrevate black's vows. 1. ... fxg4 is by far the best option for black at move # 1 and the puzzle is really good.
Its a kill or be dead puzzle. Intresting
Required a little brain power on third move as black is ready to pounce.
no he cant play knight f2, but g4 is winning by force anyway if black doesnt take.
Actualy is a draw in first one :)
yeah i messed up the variation, i thought white took on f
Rameish: 2 Nf2 Nf3+ (family check and the queen is gone!)
TetsuoShima: g4 is illegal! The White knight is already on this square!
GOOD PUZZLE....BRAIN STORMING..
u play g4 check and then give check with knight to h6...... Best for white is a perp. check....nf6 + and ng4+.
