it's about the squares you control, not the pieces ;)
If the queen takes the bishop white pushes the pawn with check and nothing will be able to stop the pawn from queening
Again: why didn't took the the black Q the white B?
A good way to force a king into a trap!!!
Beetje laat, maar ok, bedankt Willem.
becase then e7 causing the king to move, then e8=Q+, causing mate after Qf7, Qxf7#
Easy peasy lemon squeasey
Black King to f8, let the white bishop take the B-Queen.Play for the draw.1. Qxf6 gxf6 2. Bxf6 Kf8 3. Bxe7+ Kxe7If white try's to hang on to e6 then black could win.
Admittedly in a blitz game I would miss this.
uki71: if QxB, then e7+, Kg7, e8=N+, winning the queen, leaving white up a piece
you take the fun out of it if you say that it includes "sac" in the title =\
This one is really cool and nice!
2. ... Kf8!
i dont understand why black would move their queen to e8...
Me neither - the black queen could take the white bishop. also the move below shows Bxf6 but the move is to e8. Could someone please explain?
If black doesn't play Qe8 or Qxf6, then black loses its queen and all hopes of winning the game. We saw what happens for Qe8
If Qxf6, then play continues with 3. e7+ (discovered check) Qf7 4. e8=Q+ Kg7 (black's queen is pinned by white's bishop) and now white takes black's queen and ends the game.
Positional response to e4?
