why dosen't the bishop kill the horse?
Move 2. Qxb7+ looks very tempting...
1. Nd6+ Kc7 (either capture leads to Qxb7#) 2. Qxb7+ Kxd6 (Forced) 3. Qd5+ Kc7 (Forced) 4. Bf4+ Ne5! (This was the move I missed. It sacs the knight, but after the bishop recapture, the rook can block check and give a flight square for the king)
3. Bf4+? fails to Ke6! After 4. Qd5+ Kf6 5. Be5+? (trying to press the attack) Nxe5 there is no continuation.
I came. I saw. I got the puzzle.
Choices on the mate. Qa2,Qa3.
can anyone explain why the queen doesn't just take the knight at d6?
black would have first played Bd6
run piggy run
the last move could also be Qa7, or am I missing something?
Bisope wood take horse puzzle dose not work..
