When is the puzzle updated? And the tactics, too? I always wait for them and I never manage to figure out an exact hour, can anybody tell me?
What's the reason of NE6..?
1.Rg5 Re4 2.Qf8#
The pawn is still on the h-file and king would be attacking the rook...if I read you comment correctly that is.
All the moves I mentioned are forcing, and king cannot attack the rook its protected by the pawn first, and when the pawn is taken by the king then the rook is guarded by the queen.
That was not so easy! I liked it :)Note that on 1...Nh5 2.Rxh5+ followed by 3.Qg5#
in 3 move also is done
Yeah!! I get it now. God do I feel stupid!!!
1. Qf8+, Kh5
2. Rg5+, Kh4
3. Qh6+, Nh5
Several seem to be overlooking the pawn on g6 in this line. When Nh5, it is protected by that pawn. If 4 Qxh5 gxh5.
Thanks for pointing out the flaw in my "solution".
No it's wrong hxg6 3.qh8 4. Kg4 no mate in 4
It is mate because the king on h6 can't move to g4.
So if Rxg6 then Qh8# ?? Am I missing something?? Kg4 is where the king goes after Qh8+ !!
No checkmate here! Am I really that stupid?
The king can't move to g4 from h6.
it's mate in 3 not 4, think again
No mate in three.
What a stupid puzzle!
Stupid doesn't describe the puzzle. Maybe the player? Read the entire thread. Black's moves were forced to prolong mate.
I don't think black would have made those moves.
If he hadn't, he would've lost sooner.
man, your puzzle is a bit messed up.
How long did it take you to get you're rank?
