Problem ID: 0060200
Black pawn can take rook rather than moving the king into a bad position.
no, the pawn is pinned by the queen
how come people dont notice that stuff?
because we are rubbish at chess?
Missed the last move. I got greedy (or not greedy enough?) and went Nf3 for the fork on K & Q rather than mate.
Argh didn't see that Queen pinning pawn... very pretty mate though
I continue to be amazed that over 50% get these trickier puzzles right. Humbling.
100% 24seconds o yea
100% 15secs for me. Surprised myself!
I have a long way to go. I never figured this one out. I needed to see the solution . I even knew the pawn was pinned but overlooked the possibility of rook takes pawn check.
Didn,t see any of that, played Qh5.
Never was much cop at beat the clock.
Mis puntos: 1156 (+8)
22 seconds and only plus 8?
I failed, but I keep my head high and stay positive.
