Lovely combined piece play. I like that fact if black opted to take pawn with queen (Qxd4) then its becomes mate in 3.
watch out.. d4 pawn check it can be out down by knight.. so it can endup in an interesting way..:)))
this is normal position.
mate could have been avoided !
Checkmate in the center of the board and without a queen... it's beautiful!!
nice puzzle. like the idea. i guess this makes up 4 the really really easy puzzle yesterday. well, i guess it was a sunday...
Opted for the wrong pawn check on move two - otherwise pretty straightforward. Good puzzle though
qxp, pf4+------nxp, same thing
Like this one.
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!)
then simply f4 would end it
2.qxd4 or nxd4 3.f4#
If Qxd4 or Nxd4 then f4 mate.
lke this puzzle; is that an opening trap, what were the first moves??
Cool. Got it the first time through. :)
mate in 3 if 1.Nce4+,Ke5 2.f3+Kxf3 3.d4#
