nice and interesting.........
great asimple puzzle
I wondered why back wouldn't play 1... gxh6. Here's where that would lead.
Good one! Not easy to spot it up front ..
woppieee first page ROFL!!!
That excited, eh?
what about 2)...gxh6 ? no mate then.
personally i saw the pawn move before the PC played Nh5.
As far as 1.. gxRh6 is met by:
2. Qg8+ .. Nf6xQg8 and
3. Be6-f5 #
So gxRf6 is a mate in 3 actually, Molinos a couple of posts upwards posted it 1st, but you have to also check this variation in order to find the best defence for black.
But i would have prefered the sequence with 4. f5# because it's the brave pawn that becomes the hero! :)
Took me a while to work out why not 4 Kg6.
nice one today!
Can someone give me a crash course on 2 bishops #?
