Third! Fun puzzle. At least it's not titled Mate in 3.
@soaringturkey "A" IS A WORD. LOOK IT UP.
Exagerated MeTristan comment:
Dailypuzzle you are a cheater.
and for todays first place reachers.
1st - 4th couldn't even bother coming up with a word out of sheer desperation and desire to be first. Cute.
I wonder if moving the Rook first works !
Here's my analysis of the puzzle:
White had successfully isolated the Black King on one flank. Now the White Queen went in for the kill. With the White Queen attacking the Black King, the King had only one place to which he could escape. The White Rook sacrificed himself in his attack on the Black King and at the same revealing the White Bishop which had been hiding behind the Rook all along. Alas, the Black King could see that it would be soon all over. In desperation, the Black King offered his Queen for sacrifice while taking out the White Rook, but it was too little too late. The White Queen made the final deadly blow, aided by the White Bishop.
Dailypuzzle cheats by delaying; the puzzle didn't come out at 12:00 sharp pacific time.
