Why not qxd4 or nxd4 for the second move of the blacks? With a queen sacrifice, the mat can't happend, right? (2.qxd4 3be3 3qxe4!)
ye exactly what i thought, knight and queen are on it
I thought this too. But, I realized what many people have already said, by moving knight or queen to D4, White moves pawn or bishop to F4, check mate.
Sorry for the lack of protocol in my chess move descriptions. :) I love reading everyone's posts.
AND I loved this puzzle! I think I would have gotten hung up trying to fork the Queen and Rook to see the mate opportunity.
Easy because the king is in the center!!!
though unusual but pretty much predictable moves. Thanks for posting.
similar to legal's mate.
not that easy...
I'd like to see the moves that led up to this position. Must have been a hell of a game.
i did the family fork
I enjoyed this one very much, it's not everyday that you witness a check-mate in the middle of the board.
qxd4 kf3 mate
Cool puzzle. At least better than yesterday...
Nf7 was my original instinct, forking the King & Queen
