asokanelson, I think oscar deleted all his bad messages...
very nice! but me too! i also have a puzzle guys. here: white to move:
I tried this puzzle (without a program). What about Bb3? Should also win?
On either axb2 or cxb2 I would play Ba2, so you can't b1Q. Is that a possible solution or am I too blind?
3. Qxg7 also wins... >.> And in fewer turns...
If 3. Qxg7+ then 3...Kxg7. No checkmate.
here some Chess principles ( for the Chess Enthousiastic )In the attack on the ( Castled ) King one should Consider and think of:- Gaining Access ( Forging a Breach in the King's Defences )- Bringing up Pieces ( Strenghtening the Attack ) ^- Eliminating the Defenders ( Weakening the Defense )

Tip: Since the safety of the king is so important, it is one of the main principles of chess strategy during the opening stage of the game. The other important principles of chess strategy during the opening is effective development of the pieces and your share of control in the centre.With Credits to Chess Knights from FaceBook.http://www.chess-strategies-tactics.com/chess-strategies
[COMMENT DELETED] Alternate solution is one move longer (mate in 6 instead of only 5)
