I can add this tactic to my Rat-Attack
An interesting "sub-puzzle" is what was Black's Last Move?
Assuming that Black does not normally miss one move mates, then there can only be one possible last move!
the queen will not take the bishop. or it black will be dumb... instead it will move one of its kingside pawns so you have only material advantage
Even beginners need puzzles too.
not their greatest puzzle...
I am so Lucky, I got this to use this tactical theme.
easy one... but this could have been different.
atleast black gained some points.
I'd love to see what blacks last move was, cuz i dont know how it got its knight, bishop and queen in that position without being able to get checkmate before white.
i just love Sundays!
Perfect Sunday morning: Coffee -- and a puzzle I can solve.
weally easy PZ
yes noyo, if it were blacks move bishop to b2 and mate, but white has the move. king must take bishop and then, q to g7 and game.
power of good position :)
