José Raúl Capablanca announces MATE IN 3! Can you solve it?
Pretty nice Sunday puzzle from pcfilho and Capablanca. Only two starts to think of . I might start with advancing the h-pawn, but it would be answered by 1. ... Rg7, and 2.Qxg7+ would be answered by 2. ... Bxg7, and no checkmate in sight; So that is quickly rejected and we look at the old Queen sacrifice as the key to solution.
1.Qg7+ Bxg7, 2.hxg7#OR1.Qg7+ Rxg7, 2.hxg7+ Kg8, 3.Rh8#
By the way, white has a knight in there, but the knight's function is plainly to prevent the black king from capturing at (and escaping to) g7.
that was sooooo easy but fun
this was way too easy
wait and wait
Sweet, simple Sunday puzzle
black was awful
Easy Sunday puzzle with a second line:
1 h3! g4 (zugzwang) 2 Qxg4#
No! 1 Kg2 g4! where is the mate now?
Good day ; bonne journée.
Yes, though very nice. Q to g7+,RxQ, (BxQ, PxB #), PxR - double check. K to g8, R to h8#.
like this one..
I can't figure it out...
