A compelling argument for connecting one's Rooks
Beautiful rook sacrifice!
This tactic works (which isnt's always the case) when playing "tactic vs. the computer":
[Black "Computer - Hard"]
1. Rxh6+ gxh6 2. Qxh6+ Kg8 3. Qg6+ Kh8 4. Rh1#
Guillermo, the reason this one "works" when playing Try vs. Computer is that every Black response is the only legal move.
uggh, i played pawn g6 instead of queen g6, this eventually results in checkmate, but its a much longer continuation
syvä huokaus (pettymys)
1...Kh8 2.Rxh6+ gxh6 3.Qxh6+ Kg8
But then instead of 4.Qg6+ (mate in 2) I went for the 4.g6, which is not as direct, but contrary to what the analysis suggests, also ends in mate (in 5):
4.g6 Rf7 5.gxf7+ Kxf7 6.Ne5+ Ke8 7.Qg6+ Kf8 8.Qf7#
Saw it fast but so often its a TT punish for rush. 38s +6.
@dnately Correct, and after more than one year there is still an incorrect analysis line here. chess.com people just don't seem to care.
I went Ne5 and missed it aiming for a fork...of course, after I made the move the future opened up and I saw the rook sac mate combo
