removing the Guard :)
easy but a good one....almost seemed like it was right out of tactics trainer.
very easy puzzle
A little bit simple, but instructive nonetheless. Do not overstretch your pieces.
I'm gonna wait up tonight, and post first. Then I'll do the puzzle at my leisure lol... I imagine people do it to feel important, maybe they dont have much going for them in real life so they need to try and impress total strangers on a chess site by posting "first".the funny thing is those strangers they are trying to impress just think of them as bigger losers for wasting space by posting their irrelevant placing. Im almost willing to bet half the losers didnt even do the puzzle first lmfao.
Great sunday puzzle, my 9 yr old son had to think for about 2 minutes to get it. he was affraid of losing the queen I think lol.
1 .. Rc8 (accept the rook as lost)
Nice! the weakness of the 8th rank!
Nice and easy
Good puzzle illustrating the exploitation of the weakness of the back rank. Thanks.
Chess puzzles should have recommended ratings like board games have recommend ages. This is a good puzzle for 1000 - 1300 probably.
easy like Sunday morning
