OMG! How can someone be this good!? :)
The final move was like :o and from :!
Sweetest problem I've seen in a long time. I will commit this board set up to memory. Crushing!!
I wish they had a favorites folder to store these.
Thats a good idea, Guile. Mods - add that to your next enhancement list request. :)
So beautiful I could cry.
still so beautiful I could cry, except this time I solved it :)
Typical punishment for players who get the Queen out early.
That is quite impressive not going to lie. Even more impressive is probably how many people miss it...myself included. A simple pawn move...dough!
What a beauty! I also missed the pawn move. I wonder how many of us would have got the second move right if we were simply given the board after 1. Bxf7+ kf8 sequence..
How did I manage to see that. I just noticed that the queen looked cramped over that awkward g4-spot and then i noticed that the white-squared bishop covered all the escape squares for the queen. The sad thing is, I wouldn't have seen this in a OTB game. When you KNOW it's TT, you KNOW there are some clever moves. In a OTB, you're on your own, and I would have most likely missed this trap.
I am literally weeping with joy.
You have to see this Q trap, I saw just a 2 pawn grab.
One of my favs. I won't forget this pattern.
so easy to miss the second move!
