I see you're still "wasting" your valuable time on daily puzzles and tactics... :-o
nice one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!more possibilities
WHAT IF 1.Qa3+ black is forced Qxa3 2.Bxa3+ ....3.d7-d8/Q+ there is nathing black can do ...someone please correct me if i am wrong
why wouldn't black queen take white queen?
Very nice, if I was black I would have been mated in two.
should have traded queens
why not first move qb8
Yes, why wouldn't queen take queen? Makes no sense. These puzzles should be screened better.
Clever first move.
no its not queen can get taken
Very clever start.
Black isn't forced 1..Qxa3, the king still can move and prolong mate. For that matter, your second move 2. Bxa3 is unnecessary. Black taking the white queen at a3 is wrong for the same reason that taking the white queen when it moved to b4 is wrong. It allows mate the next move.
yea i guess u are right...@nds... also
then it wudnt be mate in 3...
Very, very clever first move. Took me a coupla seconds
