    why can't we go E4-E8 then E1-E8?

    Nice underpromotion puzzle, but white's job would be even easier by not allowing black the opportunity to capture the bishop.

    fp!

    Today's puzzle was interesting, so I will give an analysis:

     

     

    Basically, checkmate was inevitable (As Neo said to Mr. Smith in Matrix Revolutions "You were right Smith. You're always right. It was inevitable").

    p.s.: I'm glad I put on my shades before scrolling down, as #20 really hits one's eyes hard! Oh, happy independence day to all our American friends that visit this page (miss the BBQs and beers when I was there and will be fondly remembered for the rest of my life).

    On your 1...Rg8 2. Rxd6 Re5 line, why give back the queen so easily when it is not necessary?

    If 1.... g6 2. Rxa8 Kg7  you have a better move than 3. Bh6+?.

    3. Qe8 ... with mate coming on the next move.

    Yes 3. Qe8 looks stronger, but white should have captured black's queen on move two with 2. Rxd6.

    OR beautiful SACRIFICE

    1.Q-e8+   Rxe8

    2.Rxe8    Q-f8 (forced)

    3.Rxf8#

    Forced isn't next to 1...Rxe8 for a reason.

    Bronstein is one of the great grandmasters. He would not miss Clemdon's sarcifice. Seeing what he saw is what makes the difference between higher and lower ratings.

    This move set is much better.

    No Jake.  After Qe8 then Black goes Qf8 and there is no mate.

    Much too complicated. 1. Qe8+  Rxe8; 2. Rxe8+ Qf8; 3. Rxf8#

    Nice and easy

    But how does white proceed after 1...Qf8?
