In this position, white decided to have some fun with his opponent and played 1.g3
peoople make imposable puzzles
milchmann22, a very good puzzle!
I was about to think there was an error, but then I realized there was not.
It seemed to me that
2. …. RxN (instead of h6) could save the knight.
But white would have time, after Rxh7, to move the other rook to h3, then mate.
1. Rh3 also does not solve, due to 1. … Qe5.
well, tha's a quick analysis; thx
Yea, i forgot to add that in the comments!
2. ... RxN is answered by 3. Rxh7+ . Now black has to sacrifice a rook not to get mated, because 3. .... Kg1 4. Rg3 Rh5 5. Rh3 K?? (Blacks moves do not really matter because black simpy misses a tempo.)
