I was way down on the clock, so I'm going to put this one down to time trouble...
I'm sure you can guess what *I* did here... (Good thing I didn't end up losing on time, or this would have made me really upset.)
Back to Tactics Trainer I go......
Easy to miss. I didn't see it after looking for 30 seconds!
You shouldn't be upset. It's not popping right out at you and I imagine most people who read this thread will spot it only because it is presented as a position with a strong tactic.
Thanks! You guys are kind. :)
Of course, I went for the simple fork. What is annoying is that, before I went ahead and played Qxh7? on the 2nd move, I looked at the Queenside and thought "There's probably a mate in there somewhere, but I don't have time to look for it!"
I wish my bad moves won a rook and left me a piece up with a won game.
Haha! - Yes, if only they all did.
Of course, I make plenty of bad moves that don't leave things so favorable.
But really, that's why I thought this one was sort of instructive: After Qg8+ Kb7, would I have found the mate if there were no Rook on h7?
I'd like to think/hope so! :)
This isn't very easy to spot unless you know patterns.
