The concept is nice..but white can do some better moves..
1. ...., Qf4
2. Nf3, Q x c1 check
3. Ng1, Rf1
4. Qe8 check, Kh7
5. Qd7 check, Kh6
6. Q x a7 (Defending knight on g1), Qf4
7. g3, Qf3 check
8. Kh2, Q x g3 checkmate!
This is all done without chess engine and without chessboard. (5 minutes)
Someone may check this through some chess software, cause I don't have any.
Always good to see people thinking about these puzzles libiticus but I don't think 3...Rf1 is the best for black - Bd4 is much better. The trouble with your line is that white should play 4.Qxe5+ instead of Qe8, taking out the bishop & still ends protecting the knight after 5.Qd4. You can't mate white then !
I've covered this in my post #43.
BLACK TO MOVE!!! BE CAREFULL!!!
Is there any reason that white's first move here could not be to move the knight down to F3?
qxc1+, then queen back to f4. White only saved 1 move.
Very nice puzzle.
i was trying to move white, lol. After about 5 perfectly good mate forcing moves, i gave up and clicked on the solution and realized i was supposed to move black. That just seems odd to me. I though we're supposed to play white every time in these puzzles.
White has better options.
I'm confused by the same question...
