cool it isn't so obivous
I am glad you liked it! ;-)
Soon I intend to compose my own puzzles!
Why wouldn't black keep his Q on the back rank?
why doesn't black play Qc8 after Ra2
The answer is in the h2 square. The black queen is controlling the b8 - h2 diagonal, once she moves on the back rank she is not protecting the h2 square anymore, therefore the white rook can mate in the next 2 moves!
On post # 16 how about Bxf7 ? I suppose there's a lot of variations of mate in one there...... But nice puzzles though....=D
Last puzzle is mate in 1.
In #42 Bd5+ wins the rook for black.
Ever get the feeling you're just kinda being ignored?
lol, I'm just glad I can play chess well enough to recognise basic tactical motifs...
Incorrect! Try again...
