Problem ID: 0020648
Take with queen = forked.Take with king = forked.
I thought it was more complicated, so I looked at 1... Qb3/b1+ first, which seemed to lead nowhere. Then I saw the simple pawn move.. :)
yeah a bit too simple eh chesschief?
loool, I thought first that the black pawn moves in the other direction! Then the solution became clear when I realized that I was topographically disoriented
Exactly the same as saismo. I thought I had white.
Qxp would be even more stylish I guess. :)
jeez so simple
I was only looking at queen moves ...
haha spent the first minute thinking I was white, and worrying about my opponent playing e4...
So many checks to look at lol, looked at all the queen moves but not e4
i thought i was white
chumpbait fail. I need a caffeine infusion, or maybe even just a sight more talent than a dead dog.
I was thinking for a long time how to mate white or how to force a fork, and then realized e4 was the only legal square, and that it won the queen.
