Would have like to see it to the end.
This puzzle is not solved
Here's one from one of my games. I was on the losing end . Mate in 7.
1.Qxd6 Nc6,is right move.puzzle show blunder mistake by black
Yes, I was black. I totally missed Nc6 in the actual game (and the analysis afterward). Must have been a brain lapse or something.
Not too hard, but interesting.
Amazing what Knights can do! That's why I take them off the board.
True, Nxa2 isn't forced, but 2. Kxa2 is mated by 2... Ra7#. Since the puzzler doesn't 'make' white's move... you simply have to respond to the move made.
The smothered mate isn't forced, but it is a forced mate in 2.
thats right it's a force mate nothing u can do about it
Looks like a forced mate to me. Smothering him is a good way to do it. Nothing he can do about it. But, White made the wrong moves.
Guys I think giving a name to your puzzles would be useful- otherwise people don't know what to look for: a combination, a mate in 1, 2, 10, etc. Just a request
Good idea efhaddad88
