Actually, now that I look at it again, by taking the queen on the first move, it would have set up a defence for when the pawn promoted. Game would have continued....
Yeah. For one move. Pawn promote, checkmate.
What's your point?
I don't know why but I found this really easy!
Uhm, I think I missed something?
Took me a second too. After Qb4+ black can't capture with Qxb4 because that allows white to promote d7 to a Queen and mate (because of the Bishop on g2). Kg8 is black's only move.
Thanks for posting this comment. I didn't understand why black wouldn't just take Qb4. :-)
So dumb. If You are close to mate I am not doing down without a fight. I would have def taken the queen, not my move king.
Gotcha. So allowing yourself to get checkmated by the lowly pawn is "putting up more of a fight" than refusing to let White dictate the deflection to you. Good to know.
If you call being mated a move earlier "not going down without a fight", knock yourself out.
That doesn't make any sense. Why wouldn't black's queen just take the white queen instead of moving the King? That gets him out of check and captures white's queen. DUH!
I dont agree, why the black queen woudnt capture white queen ????
I got it right the first time again.
Could have also done
p=Q or Rd8#
14 Hours ; Alice I am going to send you to the moon.
Clever first move.
Primer movida muy inteligente, necesité ayuda.
"Vagina, I Am Good Pen, You Told Me Yours, Love" - Peacespeare "Full Moon Fever?" Hey You Nice Queen Sacrifice "When Life Becomes Duty It Ceases Fruiting!" - Uncle Muccer "Bloody Flu... It Is." Nice Queen Sacrifice Indeed
I had a hard time getting the first move.
