sacrificing your rook? all part of checkmate
A hard problem: Albert Becker announces MATE IN 4! Can you solve it?
1 Rc8+ Qxc8 2 Qxb6+ Qb7 3 Nc6+ Kc8 4 Qd8#
At first I discarded the rook sacrifice, because I couldn't see a mate after gxh6, but then I saw 1. Rxh6+ , gxh6 2. Qg8+!! , Knxg8 3. Bf5++ Very nice
This puzzle took some time to solve, so many variables to consider but I eventually got there. Good one!
Required some thought,,,,good work
i wanna eat cockroach!
Thank you! That's the part I just wasn't seeing.
Not easy to see! Nice puzzle.
