    It is rather sad that daily puzzle must simply rule out as "wrong" moves (such as 1.Ne7+) when they are really good alternatives.  I think that Ne7+ actually forces a mate in 3, where black could have delayed the game longer with 1.Qg4...Bg3+.

    with bishops blocking movement,needed way to check,knight was covered by queen,SAC and whack,all you had to do was get black Q to not be able to take white knight,mate in one if Q could not take knight,but CHESS.COM has plenty of queens to sac.required some thinking,and i like that they did noy say how many moves to mate.i would like to see that more often,it does make it harder to solve.have a good day chess heads!!!!!!!

    what are you talking about?  1.Qg4+ FORCES black to capture the queen or block the check with the queen leading to a mate on the next move.

    The whole point of puzzles is to find the fastest mate.  many puzzles are given where there are several winning lines, but only one fastest and therefore correct line.

    I understand why the queen was sacrificed but it still does not help me, I am warming to it as you guys do it so often Smile
