Problem ID: 0022797
I have a hard time figuring out the exact combination that would make the rook sacrifice worth it... Anyone figured it out?
The queen is hanging!!
After R*d5 black can only take the rook and sacrifice the queen. If black plays Qh1+ or Qf1+ then after Rd1 black is threatened with Rd7++
First time I've seen a pawn pinned from this angle.
I only got the first two moves because I was playing for perpetual check
That is beautiful! I wish I had seen the rook sacrifice.
Respect to the 29% that found this. After looking for several minutes, I just decided to go for perpetual check.
Really nice one...
Only found first two moves...still earned 4 points and first time above 1600 rating !
After Qh1+ and Rd1, BQ has to take QxRd1 or it's quickly a game over situation
Did not see that at all. Total fail!
This was an amazing puzzle that I eventually solved only to lose 1 point on time spent!
Thank You chess.com!
I could only think of the perpetual check too. Darn!
SCORE: 89.7% My Score: 1708 (+10)
I ended up solving it after 5 minutes haha. Getting that 20% score yeahhh
Wow! Sneaky move! Took me a while to see it actually. It takes this type of geometric vision I think...
