It almost seems that black king should have gone to F4 on move #2 instead of taking the pawn. Can someone tell me the disadvantage of defending that way (other than stalling so white can promote pawns?)
Check out post #58 for the solution to 1...Kf4.
another good lesson/review......
Good chemistry for white's Q & R...it' showtime guys !!!
This was an excellent puzzle today. The first 2 moves were routine but moves 3 and 4 were more thought provoking.
On Bryan's ...if ...Kf4 2. Re4+...Qxe4 3.Qg3#.
In response to Freebie's ...Kf4, white next move is to sac the R to e4+...Qxe4 3.Qg3# !
OHHH I GET IT NOW.....
Nice exposed king/mating net ..
why cant black queen kill white rook
I asked about why black queen did not take rook. Duh! Oh, course. Thanks to all who answered, particularly slowhare who provided the moves and alternative moves. That WAS a sly puzzle.
