I will try this eventually
Uhhh...okay. What is this....bribe-mate?
Just a few "puzzles" I'd like to submit for consideration, all of which are actual gameplay from myself here on chess.com
In your second puzzle, why not 5.dxc3?
These 2 puzzles are made from my games. In the 1st one i changed the possition of one of white's chess pieces. In the 2nd one it was really the position in one of my games.
1st puzzle: mate in 4, level of difficulty: medium.
2nd puzzle: mate in 12, level of difficulty: hard.
In my 2nd puzzle I put 5. cxd3 only because that's not how my opponent played it, though it was definitely the better move.
i really like yours also vitali. The 2nd one is longer, but I really love the first. So beautiful, so tight. Gotta love a queen sac. ;)
In your second one, 10.Qxh7#
WanderingWinder - i'll make a correction.
2nd puzzle: mate in 10, level of difficulty: hard.
tornadofdoom in Devout_Monk's 2nd puzzle if 5.dxc3 the continuation will be 5...Qxb3+, 6.Kc1, Qxa3+, 7. Kd2, Qa2+, 8. Ke1, Qxg2 and black will eventually win the game. The question is why cxd3? If not that move white would probably win because he had extra material. White probably would take the 1st decoy (exchanging rook with knight), but the 2nd one was too suspetious.
Vitali, I received and read your inbox message. I don't exactly see a question you may have posed for me to respond to. Could you please be more clear as to what you are asking? Also, you're alternate line you mentioned above would be very nice, had white taken cxd3.
If i were playing white in a long live game or online game, i'd move 2.Qxg2, but not 4.cxd4, because i would understand it's a decoy (happening too close to the king). Why were you so sure your oponnent won't understand it? in that case you'd lose material.
is it just me, or is half the comments puzzles?
Is that a game you played? It looks like a game to me. And puzzles are supposed to be forced, or the fool's mate and the scholler's mate would be puzzles
Those are NOT puzzles... there's absolutely no point to them. You're just guessing random moves, hoping to be right, but there's no real logic behind them.
Devout_Monk - 1...Qxg7 wins a piece in your second puzzle.
Devout_Monk wanted to acheive checkmate by 2 sacrifices. The problem is that white may not play 4.cxd3? and then black has a problem because now white has extra material. So the best move here is 1...Qxg7 winning a piece.
well that is quite amazing that the king gets there
Anand spent 1:43 mins on 4th move in world blitz semi-final ?!
