    Is 2...Nc6 the best move for black?  The rook is going to get taken either way, and the knight just ends up getting stuck there in the end.  Seems like black could have done something else there like move the queen.

    i didnt get the point of the puzzle. was it just for white to get on an advantage?

    there where no mates, only one mate threatning that black easily blocked out.

    thaks for the puzzle E-Kuko. daily puzzle was great but shouldn't they put something that says what the goal of the puzzle is? I couldn't solve this one because I thought the goal is to mate black

    There's no way left to defend the knight on c6. I'm not sure if the bishop has to go to e1 specifically though.


     It does. Otherwise 1. ...    Nd4    2. Bxb7    Rxc1+    3. Kg2    Rxh1


    Bd2 works as well, Rxc1 is still check, but doesnt win the queen. Of course after Nd4 black follows Bxc1 with Nxe2+ for the fork, but if the king moves to g2/h2 the white queen defends the bishop on c1 and white still maintains a decisive material advantage.

    what about qd4 first and then rxd4 bxb7 winning the rook?
