Deflect the bishop so king can't escape.
chess.com y u no give harder puzzles!?
Always wondered why myself.. since most other chess sites offer much tougher ones or at least give you a choice of easy or hard. I guess it could be either...
1- Because a lot of beginners say 'nice' or 'great puzzle' to them (even to mate in one puzzles) .
2- The puzzle staff are low ranked players who are wowed by queen sacrifices or dont appreciate tougher challenges or more subtle moves.
3- To ensure you dont waste your time at work by thinking too hard, puzzles are designed to be as obvious as possible and 'solved' in 3 secs.
nice but easy
we need harder problems
for i am not a beginner
I'm not first,but i'm the best..
All the morons yell "first" it does matter in real life, in case you were wondering.
Black bishop was overloaded - covering the diagonal (especially h8) AND providing an escape square at g8 for his king. The initial Rh8+ deflected the bishop from his second function.
