Thanks for the lesson. Being that Checkmate was administered by a (b2-b3) pawn; the Checkmate pattern would be call the David and Goliath Checkmate. I thought the Hook mate was somewhat in sight. Chess.com is always right!!! Good Night! Happy Chess Singing!
cool a pawn mate and a king chase.
Hello world!!! :D
After Knight to d6 check, not Bishop x Knight, else Queen x b7 checkmate??!!
How come the black bishop did not take the knight??
1... Bxd62. Qxb7#
That's right. Sorry, I made my post before I saw this.
why not go Knight to f6 and than "Q" to b7?
queen a6 or 7 would have been fine aswell
black made some questionable moves
Thank you for the puzzle, a little easy today, but MEOW TO ALL!!
Every move by black was forced
It was mate at move 30 with Q to 8 rank
A trap by a lovely girl: Kiera Kennedy announces MATE IN 2! Can you find it?
PS: for those curious about yesterday's mate-in-10 problem, I posted the solution here:
1 Qh5+ Rg5 2 Qxg5#
I know, today it was an easy one.
We needed an easy one after that tough mate in ten. By the way, PCF, what really happened in the Carlsen game after that key move Qc7?
And, are we getting the puzzles for today, viz. May 17th?
White Knight: "How YOU Doin'?"
Black King: "Just fine...how YOU Doin', horsie boy?"
White Knight: "Doin' GREAT! why doncha come on over here to the Queenside."
Black King: "Marvelous Idea!!"
White Queen: "Keep on goin."
Black King: "Umm. If you say so lady."
White Bishop: "Oh, and, How YOU Doin' again, my Lord?"
Black King: "All right now what's this all about?
White Pawn: "You just got mated, sir."
easy puzzle for me!
