Satisfyingly complicated ! It's a pity that the original puzzle didn't follow the 1...Nxb4 variation with 2.Na4 xxx 3.Qd7#, much more challenging & with two out of three moves non-checking.Hope we get more like this.
There is a simpler solution.
It's rather sad. You put up so many "puzzles." Easy wins for the player whose turn it is (usually, and in this case, white). Then you have both sides go through a line filled with dumb blunders. What is your purpose?
For my part, I will from now on ignore postngs with your name attached,just as I ignore the uninformative one-liners, like "first" or "easy," etc..
Couldn't agree more - I've yet to find one of his 'puzzles' that has a sensible solution. I also now ignore his posts.
You could have had the king in check mate first try
If white ended up losing in this situation...
Thanks for the lesson!
why isn't queen to a6 (followed by killing knight) mate?
not so easy...
not that good
tried Qf5 by hit and trial and finally solved...still a mystery for me.
That was pretty boring.
why not the queen to g6?
this is just novice.
