took me a while to find, good puzzlelooking at this again, the game wouldn't be over for black with Qc3, Bb6 could change alot
not really cause white just takes the rook with the Queen and if black recaptures then white just takes with the pawn.
Why is this not more effective?
I think because it is roughly equal after ra1, QxR, QxQ, and then Rf8 (which is an improvement); whereas Qc3 wins.
how about white plays Rc7, either black Q or R blocks next will be taken out by the white R, and white Q takes black's g7 pawn and mate?
If 1. Rd7 then 1...Qc1+ 2. Rd1 Qxd1#.
After Bb6 ( or Bd4, both of which saves the checkmate threat) Qxf3 and white has a pawn and a rook for a bishop..... the material advantage and the passed e pawn is enough to decide the game.
In the Lasker puzzle.....I am very disappointed with the finish.... Kd2???I tried 0-0-0 and the puzle said wrong move :(0-0-0# is much more elegant....
One of my favorite chess puzzles. Try solving it all the way through before playing the first move. (It's more satisfying that way!)
Also, if you click the image below you'll find photos of 250+ more people (myself included) holding up their answers to the question "Why are YOU a libertarian?"
I didn't mention chess in my answer, but to be fully honest, I think chess did play a role. Chess taught me that there is a lot that I do not know and consequently made me more open to considering new ideas. Feel free to discuss this meme here.
18. O-O-O# works too.
