“Self-confidence is very important. If you don’t think you can win, you will take cowardly decisions in the crucial moments, out of sheer respect for your opponent. You see the opportunity but also greater limitations than you should. I have always believed in what I do on the chessboard, even when I had no objective reason to. It is better to overestimate your prospects than underestimate them.” - Magnus Carlsen
Thanks Pegglarr this is the exact words that match this puzzle ,chess is like life ,you act the same at the theater of life .THIS IS GREAT WORDS FROM Magnus Carlsen That show his genius and prudence .
I got the 2nd move right I'm not sure about the first one though
The first move is to remove black's threat to the e2 bishop.
THIS DOES NOT LEAD TO MATE IT'S AN EXCHANGE OF PIECES!!!!
THIS DID NOT LEAD TO MATE!!
I don't get this puzzle... Can somebody tell me why pond didn't take Q on d4 on the 2nd move -or why Q traded for a K instead of R?
Basically, if the queen takes the rook there will be nothing left to take the knight, whereas when the queen takes the knight the bishop will be able to take the rook.
Alrigty! So it's about learning to prioritise! If you miss the right sequence, you miss the next big thing, ok!

After all the simplifications, White should be winning. Wondering though if 2...PxQ would have been better for Black?
