2...Qc8 and there is no quick victory.
yeah,... black made a mistake
Might want to edit the puzzle then. Queen on f4 instead of f5 would work.
no, usually one person wins a game because their oppenent makes a mistake
but then its not a tactic if it isn't forced!
So I'm looking at your puzzle, assuming that I have to mate Black (although you haven't actually stated the objective). I see 2.Re8+, but see that it fails to mate after 2...Qc8. How am I supposed to guess the move when it doesn't work against correct defence?
sometimes your oppenent makes a mistake
Ok, I see you fail to grasp the point. Just bear in mind, you're likely to get the same reaction from any half-decent player the next time you post unsolvable puzzles.
