Pretty cool and I did not have to give up my queen
Why not Kf4 after Qg2+
Why didn't Daily Puzzle finish it up with the black queen taking rook and checkmate?
very good puzzle but I do not think that the black pieces have ever won a puzzle!!!!! I mean really what is up with that??
very very nice moves.... thanks
Deflection at its finest.
another point is 1...Kf4 2.Re4+!! Qxe4 3.Qg3#
it's not hard to get on the first page i do every time
great play it was a good game!
dont let the queen decieve you
A bit difficult, but interesting puzzle!
Another fine puzzle. Too bad we cannot vote on the puzzles we like and the puzzles we do not like. There was a simple elegance in this one I very much appreciated.
Excellent puzzle. Note that white was a bit lucky since black was not able to meet 3.Rd7 with ...Rd5 since the d5 square is under white queen's control.
I know what you're saying, but perhaps it was not luck. Perhaps white went into this seeing the whole line through and saw it was winning. Or white just instinctively knew the black rook could never go to d5 in this line without actually calculating the line. The better your calculating abilities and instincts are the better you will play.
I agree with Bryan. There is no such thing as luck in chess.
