First one to find the correct move and why it works gets a trophy! :D
(From one of my recent games, black to move and force mate)
Sorry adam that is not the correct answer. I would explain why, but I'm not giving any hints.
And please no engines that would spoil the fun :)
What about the rook?
I first thought a Queen sac would do it because of the rook on g6.
your line wins, but does not force mate, as he does not have to take
wrong again adam :P
Do I have to get all the moves or just the first one?
you have to get the first move and explain why it works. When someone fills that criteria, I will post all lines showing how it forces a mate.
Here is a hint: it forces a mate in 7
I thought you said you weren't giving any hints?
I can change the rules :Pand why Qxh3?
good job Horatio you win!
It appeared in a recent game, and I won it. I put it into the computer after the game to learn that there is no way black can escape! I dont need to post the lines here because you did. Good job!
you deleted your comment :(
is this what Horatio posted, or is this refuted?
Edit: I forgot to add a bishop check to prolong the mate. Also, I did not see Kh2 till later and that is why it is not the main line.
yup nate that is right!
here are all the lines I could find
I got Nh4+. Did I have to get the reasons and moves right as well?
