Problem ID: 0021380
so you gain a knight?
That's pretty clever.
omg, i did 3. Re2, but the queen can just capture!
supposed to go Rf1
I like the fact that according to the problem's rating and pass rate, pretty much everyone sacks the queen, but only 1/4 of them know why they did it.
Says everything about the tactic trainer.
Did the exact same thing, Dekker :)
The white king and queen get forked on the next move no matter what, because the white king only has 2 legal moves after Rf1, Kxf1 or Ke2.
LOL well i saw the idea of the tactic but stupidly moved to Re2 allowing my rook to be taken by the queen. At least I thought of the concept I suppose.
Very nice! So clever...
Why is the problem stopped before the knight fork?
Stared at it for 15 minutes, couldn't find any move that would gain anything for Black. So I played the most "Tactics Trainer"-ish move, just sac your Queen for no reason!
Only then after the obvious Kf2 did I notice the fork and solved the problem. -9 for not being able to calculate 5 moves ahead! A valuable lesson.
That last move was deep. Forces king into a fork.
Ugh. Why did I go for Re2? Geez I'm a dummy.
Nice queen sacrifice.
