Great and easy...
knights are always clever
Easy and nice!
Should have been obvious from the beginning: In the end, the White Knight always gets the glory and they live happily ever after, whoever they are.
You need to chill out mate. It's not real,
1st again (well i was the 1st one to get it after 4 pm)
You can be first if you want 'willmac 12'. But you're going to have to get up very early in the morning.
I got it right, but what was wrong with Qf8 though?
Actually anything black does will get him in checkmate so nevermind.
Proper of a Grandmaster.Please be relevant, helpful & nice!
I found that you could have just taken the Queen, couldn't you, with the Bishop?
Also you could have checkmated before...
No, the bishop at e8 is pinned in place by the rook at d8 !
SO SO EASY
Did enjoy this one.
Checkmate without a sacrifice? How unique!
In your "more obvious and forcing variation", after 2 Qf7+, black plays 2...,Qxf7. There's nothing forcing about it.
I like how everyone else keeps reposting the puzzle with different variations. While it's helpful to see that there would be many ways to win if this were a real game, the goal of the puzzle is to find the only line that checkmates in three moves.
I am so much happier now that I'm playing people worse than me.
